Article:

In the context of the fourth industrial revolution, not all regions have the sameaccess to technology for project development. These technological limitations donot necessarily result in worst projects and, on the contrary, can stimulatecreativity and human intervention to overcome these shortcomings. We reporthere the design of a small pavilion with scarce budget and an ambitious goal toqualify a space through tactical urbanism. We develop the project in amultidisciplinary partnership between academy and industry, designing,manufacturing and assembling Tornado Pavilion, a complex structure usingcombined HIGH-LOW technologies, combining visual programming with analogmanufacture and assembly. The design strategy uses SIMPLEXITY with ruledsurfaces strategy to achieve a complex geometry. Due to the lack of automatedmechanical cutting or assembly, we used human expanded abilities for theconstruction; instead of a swarm of robots, we had a motivated and synchronizedswarm of students. The pavilion became a reference for local population thatadopted it. This process thus shows that less or almost nothing (Sola-Morales1995), need not to be boring (Venturi 1966) but less can be much more (Kolarevic2017).
