This competition entry detailed a design for a single story glass house that encloses a brick core.
"This masonry core, consisting of a series of curvilinear, digitally fabricated brick walls, creates a direct dialog with the hand crafted masonry of AndrÃ© Bloc's neighboring Habitacles.
The role of these brick walls is dual: they provide the structural core of the building, supporting the cantilever of the roof on all sides, while constituting a complex spatial device. Their concave sides create a generous enfilade of varying spaces which unfurls along the glass facade of the pavilion, generating multiple views of the surrounding park and beyond to Paris. On the convex side, the walls combine to form an introverted central core which contains the building's infrastructure: kitchen, sanitary and storage rooms as well as a space for viewing video art." --http://www.gramaziokohler.com
