Architects Manuel Bouzas Cavada, Manuel Barcala and Ciara Alvarez Garci designed an innovative, temporary pavilion for Logroño, Spain’s Concéntrico festival, using a tactic similar to that of folding paper.

The installation description noted the similarities when coming up with the concept, saying that a sheet of paper, for example, cannot sustain itself. However, when it’s precisely folded, its capabilities expand.

“A wooden panel does not stand on its own, but if we do a series of precise folds it is capable not only of holding oneself, but of supporting a situation that one could not expect,” the festival’s translated website explains.

“We will not use any structure or substructure. We will use only and exclusively the starting material. No more no less.”

The starting—and ending—materials were 39 Garnica wood panels, joined together with hinges. Light comes in through the gaps the hinges create, giving the illusion that the structure is illuminated from within.

The invention was selected for the festival’s kiosk.

“Based on the concept of pattern and using the technique of origami, the pavilion opens up to its surroundings,” the festival’s jury said. “The design outcomes of the pavilion demonstrate its structural viability.”

The team has been working together since 2015. Cavada works at the Superior Technical School of Architecture of Madrid, where Barcala and Garci are recent graduates.
