Switzerland Innovation Park Zurich opened
An information pavilion with a magnetic effect
The visionary pavilion shows visitors to the Innovation Park where to go from a distance. Pioneering ideas and progressive knowledge about sustainable building are the characterising features of the wooden information pavilion.
As the Innovation Park’s first building, the wooden pavilion celebrated its grand opening in March 2018. It plays a key role in the park, being both the entrance portal and a meeting place.
Meetings and discussions
‘We had the idea of designing the pavilion in the style of open street furniture,’ explains Frank Stolz of the Luxembourg architecture firm FAT. ‘To this end, we designed a viewing platform that consciously sets the scene for the view of the area and the Alpine panorama. The room modules are high quality and comfortably designed and invite people to linger.’ Meetings and discussions take centre stage, both outside and inside. Offices, a café bar, exhibition areas and the public roof terrace create suitable meeting places for this very purpose.
«The pavilion will be dismantled after the designated term of eight years. The room modules used and the building shell can be up to 100% re-used.»
"The room modules have been designed with a very high degree of quality and offer visitors a very appealing space." Frank Stolz, Architect at Blumer-Lehmann AG

Production and construction of the room modules were carried out at Blumer-Lehmann AG’s plant at Erlenhof.
The primary and secondary timber support structures were placed over the prefabricated wood modules on site.
