MultiPly at Madrid Design Festival 2020

This installation at the Madrid Design Festival, a collaboration between Waugh Thistleton Architects, the American Hardwood Export Council and ARUP, is made from tulipwood and is carbon neutral. The 8 metre tall pavilion uses 32m3 of American tulipwood, which is replaced with new growth in US forests in less than 2 minutes.

The main objective of this project is to raise awareness of how environmental challenges such as the need for housing and the climate crisis can be addressed through innovative and affordable construction.

The design consists of multiple spaces that are interconnected, combining modular systems with sustainable building materials to create a building that can be disassembled, and recycled for new construction at the end of its life. It demonstrates an exciting solution to these modern day challenges and inspires discussion into rethinking the way in which our society is built.

We love the look of this and the idea behind it!
