Pavilion Flora Fauna | 3rd semester | Winter semester 2023/24

The task was to develop a pavilion that is as convertible as the 4 seasons and responds to the respective needs. A pavilion as a small restaurant, a work/living space, an exhibition space and a stage, as well as a home for native animals.

It should be able to change its architectural appearance with folding or plug-in mechanisms and offer additional functions. Or should it be as use-neutral as possible so that it is open to all uses? This option also had to be considered.

The project had to respond to the challenges of the 21st century and offer economical solutions coupled with great flexibility. It was to be designed with prevailing panel dimensions, reuse thoughts and be thought through and presented down to the last detail. The list of ingredients is exclusively from renewable raw materials or intended as upcycling.

The building site is the HFT and Uni Park in Stuttgart, the respective location could be chosen by the students.

Supervision of design project: Prof. Monika Joos-Keller, accompanying seminar: Prof. Dr. Hans-Jürgen Breuning.


The 52-metre-long Symbiosis Pavilion in the Stadtgarten Stuttgart serves as an architectural link between the Stuttgart University of Applied Sciences and the University of Stuttgart. It provides a meeting place for people, animals and plants, supports multifunctional activities such as exhibitions and lectures, and promotes well-being through integrated natural spaces and a water reservoir. The pavilion also enables students to present their work to the public and offers seasonal uses including a rolling kiosk.

THREE IN A SQUARE - Teresa Schedel

Three In A Square represents a concept based on a modular construction system. This construction enables simple assembly and disassembly by interlocking and screwing together supports. With the focus on the students, the pavilion is designed for recreation. The functional zones and the path zones in between create a versatile space that also enables interaction. It invites you to break through the boundaries between the ideas of space and interaction.

SHROOM PAVILLON - Pia Müller, Lea Piesch

The Shroom Pavilion is a striking feature between Stuttgart's universities, a place to relax and enjoy nature. The building stands out from the ground thanks to its architecture on stilts. The surrounding trees and the ivy growing underneath enclose the pavilion and create a connection with nature. The many nesting boxes on the facade integrate the needs of native songbirds into the human architecture. Its cantilevered roof invites people to linger. The pavilion's flexible interior and exterior spaces can be used for studying or events all year round.
