    Meshelter is a multi-functional community building, our proposal for an innovative and enhanced visitor's experience.
    It acts both as shelter and resting point as well as information tool for the city: distributed along walking/cycling paths and thematic tours. A light weight structure pavilion with a translucent pneumatic membrane which inflates/deflates according to the weather conditions. The air conditioning technology is based on the Venturi effect: hot air flows to the exterior from top similary as in the typical middle eastern architecture wind towers. The pavilion shell is formed by a double skin membrane cushion which “breathes” with the outside through conical openings that allow the hot air flow out. A photovoltaic system of triangular double glass modules guarantees the energy sufficiency.
