IBM Padiglione itinerante

IBM Padiglione itinerante

The itinerant exhibition IBM was born to present the transformations of the technological future in twenty cities of Europe. The materials used were lamellar wood for connecting rods, cast aluminum joints for joints, polycarbonate for pyramid-shaped cover elements. These components were self-supporting and, connected to each other, constituted the structural arch of the pavilion.
