Curves and bends
The most striking aspects of the Jinso pavilion are the façade and the roof. The façade consists of cold-bent insulating glass, bent and installed using special suckers. On the ground floor, three-quarters of the building skin can be opened by means of a faceted folding wall where each individual part has another radian. Three stability braces have been included in the surface of the façade, two of them at the ends of the oval.
The roof is over two-and-a-half metres high and consists of eight large air cushions. These are mounted on a detailed steel construction of faceted delta beams. The cushions each have four EFTE layers with three air chambers per cushion. The EFTE is imprinted with a pattern by means of which the sun and light shading can be regulated by altering the air pressure in the innermost chamber. The air inlets for the cushions are integrated into the structure.
