Sail-World.com : Camper welcomes the world to its 'paper' pavilion

Camper welcomes the world to its 'paper' pavilion

'Shigeru Ban pavilion 2'    Camper    Click Here to view large photo

Extending beyond comfortable and fashion-forward footwear, Camper has commissioned Japanese architect, Shigeru Ban to design the Camper Pavilion for the Volvo Ocean Race 2011-12.

Visually airy and with an open perimeter, the pavilion is a circular structure characterised by a striking colonnade of cardboard tubes (in this case of various diameters, so that one can fit into others and ease the shipment).

The Japanese architect has become internationally renowned for using these tubes in his constructions and for using his talent for the good of society and has worked on projects all over the world. Specialising in paper based structures, he was featured in Time Magazines 21st century innovators in the field of architecture and design.

After the Kobe earthquake in 1995, he used cardboard tubes and beer crates filled with sand (for the foundations) as a fast and economic way of building temporary homes for victims as well as the Takatori Catholic Church. The UN has since used these same materials in places where catastrophes have occurred.

Shigeru Ban also designed the Centre Pompidou-Metz museum which, like his other large buildings, features the simple, modest appearance that is so characteristic of his work and of oriental culture in general.

The Camper Pavilion was inaugurated on 14 October, in the Village of the Volvo Ocean Race which began its global route in the city of Alicante, Spain.
