LightPRO Shell

Active-bending structure of biocomposite profiles

The LightPRO Shell Pavilion is an active-bending structure made of natural fibre bio-composite profiles. It is a 10-meter span canopy that demonstrates the capabilities of a newly developed material: ‘bamboo-like’ profiles made of natural flax and hemp fibres. The profiles are completely biodegradable and can be used in a variety of structural applications or ephemeral structures. This innovative structure is demonstrating a sustainability approach towards future architecture. Its purpose is to introduce alternative sustainable materials for structural applications to the market.
