The temporary façade is designed to generate zero waste. Some ecological materials were to be further reused, while others were rented for the occasion; everything was returned to its origin after the exhibition. The use of pallets outside their industrial context,
in repetitive arrangement, offers a strong and engaging facade.

The structure of the façade is made of rented, conventional scaffolding which hang the different layers that compose the façade. The natural cork panels offer an ecological insulation to the building.
