Pavilion B2 is the rehabilitation of two old sheds in Shanghai. A new “skin”, made up of terracotta tiles (on the facade) and a metallic layer (on the roof) will cover the external surface of the sheds, while a new glass facade will cover the area between the 2 buildings. Moreover the two buildings (B2 and C1) will be realized in order to increase the total area of the pavilions up to 8.800 sqm. Photovoltaic panels will be installed on the not covered surface to partially satisfy the electric energy needs of the building.
