A two-story pavilion has been constructed for the BBC in Cannes, France.

According to bimstore, the pavilion is a temporary structure for use during the  MIPCOM trade show and was was designed by Universal Design Studio and Giles Miller Studio

The structure, which was made entirely from recycled materials, can be easily dismantled, re-used and recycled at the end of its life.

“We created an iconic temporary structure that can be reutilised for initially three years with the opportunity for it to travel globally to any other relevant event for the BBC,” said Richard Ryan, associate director of Universal Design Studio.

“The structure itself should also be recycled at the point of its end use. Outside of these parameters, the aim was to create a structure that enabled the BBC to host, sell and entertain,” said Ryan.

The BBC’s requirements meant that the structure would have to be large enough to accommodate a mixture of private and public meeting rooms as well as a more flexible event space.

The structure also features a facade made up of aluminium louvres and a palette of neutral materials with the purpose of providing a better acoustic environment.
