The concept of Papillon is to create a radio experience through a pavilion. Amplify radio events to a public space, and allow people to engage with news, music and shows.

Papillon's design was inspired by the combination of Nature, Sound Physics, and Thin Shell Architecture.

Quick mock-ups helped understand the structure, that is why Papillon's design is a thin concrete shell composed of 16 parts.

A 3D printed model was made to show the idea and to experiment if a structure constructed with 16 parts could be achieved in a small scale easily.
