Butterfly Pavilion | 3deluxe

On Noor Island, a lagoon island in the middle of the capital of the Arab Emirate Sharjah, German architecture firm 3deluxe is currently designing a 25 ha transmedia landscape park, interwoven with an ensemble of several themed pavilions and buildings. The first architecture structure to shape the island’s entire appearance, the Butterfly Pavilion, is near completion. 

The pavilion has an ornamental shading roof characterizes the island. It houses more than 500 butterflies in a unique biosphere and offers visitors numerous opportunities for contemplation and recreation. The shape and design of the pavilion’s biomorphic outer shell are the product of an intense formal exploration of parametric design strategies in dialog with traditional Arabian ornamentation. The highly complex freeform roof is composed on a load-bearing 3D frame with over 4,000 golden aluminum leaves of varying sizes.
