Resilient London: confronting climate change

Resilient London: confronting climate change

The pavilion responds to the climate emergency in two ways: achieving net-
zero energy and water. The main canopy creates a cool stack effect-induced microclimate, while more than 1,055 solar panels meet the building’s energy demands. Tactics such as high air tightness, subterranean ancillary structures and local-controlled ventilation are also employed. 100 per cent of the pavilion’s water is from on-site sources and utilises district-scale strategies to mine area wastewater for treatment and reuse on-site and uses ‘water trees’ to harvest morning dew.
