The Basel Pavilion is a pioneer in the architectural examination of climate-friendly and circular construction: All significant components of the "Loggia Baseliana" - clay bricks, wooden planks and panels, steel profiles, trapezoidal sheet metal or cardboard tubes - originate from regional deconstructions.
The "Loggia Baseliana" consists of five open units. With formal clarity, each unit derives its constructive system from its respective materiality. Grouped together under a simple gable roof made of trapezoidal sheet metal, the modules form a continuous gallery walkway over fifty meters long along the railroad tracks - an urban veranda that offers glimpses of the past and views of the upcoming transformation into an urban quarter.
