Pavillions German Week, (2009)
The German Government organized in cooperation with the German Goethe Institute the event of The German Weeks in China, which takes place in different Chinese Cities from 2008 until 2010. The German Weeks are an exhibition and promotion platform for German companies such as Siemens, BASF and so on, to introduce German products and technology.
The bamboo exhibition pavilions are created by the German Artist Markus Heinsdorff and by MUDI. The fourteen transparent pavilions in golden or metal appearances are made of bamboo in different sizes and shapes as walk-through objects and exhibition spaces. The design consists of bamboo pipes and bamboo panels and a newly developed connection system. The facades are made of transparent plastic or a mesh of golden bronze and show a light game by the reflection of different lighting during day and night.
Bencer provided engineering consultation and engineering design services especially for the structural system. Bencer also developed together with the artists and the architects newly and unique connection details and bamboo structures.
