Rose Pavilionby Dimitriy DeminThe idea for the construction of this pavilionfor the XXII Winter Olympic Games in Sochioriginates with the emblem of the five Olympicrings familiar to everyone from childhood. Likethe Olympic rings, the pavilion is designed toperform five functions for athletes and guests atthe Games, each of them with a defined life-cycle.By using the symbolism of the Olympic rings, theaim is to make the pavilion a memorable imageof the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, as well asreflecting Russias national heritage.The Concept ofthe PavilionSymbiosis ofArchitectural andSporting TraditionsBUSSTationCentre forProductDemonstrationInteractiveFeaturesInformationCentre
Rose Pavilionby Dimitriy DeminPavilionsasanarchitecturalforminRussiagobackto the time of Peter the Great, when they werefirst designed both for rest and recreation andas features in the landscape. The Rose Pavilionis conceived as a continuation of this tradition tocelebrate the Sochi Winter Olympics.The form of the pavilion was inspired by thenatural beauty of Rosaceae Rosa canina –plants of the dog-rose family. These roses havea pentagonal symmetry and double curvaturein their petals – features which have beentranslated through precision engineering into anaesthetically beautiful architectural form.TraDITION DesignThe highly attractive winter resort of Rosa Khutorin Krasnaya Polyana – which translates as ‘theRosa Khutor in the Red Glade’ – was chosen asthe appropriate spot for a project which bringsRussian tradition up to date with the siting of amodern pavilion in a ski centre, where it bothgives protection from the elements and providesinteractive online information.ROSE Khutor

Rose Pavilionby Dimitriy DeminThe pavilion is designed to provide a visually ar-resting and weather-proof hub which will serveas a focal point in providing information aboutthe resort’s infrastructure, services and attrac-tions for visitors to the Games.It is conceived as a public place which, amongother functions, will protect visitors from theweather while they wait for shuttle buses. The pa-vilion’s radial symmetry provides optimum spa-ciousness for tourists or athletes to shelter fromthe sun or ride out bad weather under its ‘petals’.Bus station
Rose Pavilionby Dimitriy DeminThe concept and design of the pavilion will alsofacilitate access for visitors to information abouthotels, services and local attractions, focussingtheir attention on relevant data as soon as theyarrive. Details of ski lifts and the programmeof events will also be readily available, and aninteractive interchange with mobile devices willbe provided. All of this will make the pavilion thegateway to the resort, opening its doors to thevisitor.A Centre forInformation
Rose Pavilionby Dimitriy Deminкупольнаягоризонтальная волнообразнаятентоваяThe appearance of the pavilion was devised byparametric design techniques. The final archi-tectural form resulted from an analysis of mate-rial properties and engineering calculations, tak-ing into account local climatic conditions. Thesepointed to a preference for a domed structure inorder to minimize the effect of snow loads. Col-laboration between architects, engineers andbiologists made possible the creation of an archi-tectural aesthetic harmonious with the beauty ofthe natural environment.The pavilion has high performance componentsbecause of the automation of the design cycleand manufacturing process. This is the result ofarchitectural design being integrated with theuse of robots in an innovative way which makesproduction purely mechanical.A TechnologicalInnovation
Rose Pavilionby Dimitriy DeminThe Golden RatioDespite its unusual bionic shape, the pavilionexhibits the classical proportions of ‘the goldenrule’, which permeate all of its design elements.According to Pythagoras, a regular pentagonrepresents mathematical perfection, concealingwithin itself the golden rule.
Rose Pavilionby Dimitriy Deminground floor+1,000mCovering the base of the pavilion is a pattern thatmimics the symbolism of the XXII Winter OlympicGames in Sochi. Technologically, this feature is alayer of ultra-elastic concrete (UHFB) which doesnot need further treatment, paint or other pro-tective coating. The columns of the pavilion canbe bolted using prefabricated metal supports.They follow faithfully the radial symmetry of thefive-pointed Olympic emblem of a star.
Rose Pavilionby Dimitriy DeminView from the TopThe petals of the dome of the pavilion are a sty-listically converted ornament of the Olympic star,created through a set of parametric design tech-niques. The holes near each of the five columnswere added following the recommendation ofengineers who took into account the climatic fea-tures of Krasnaya Polyana. They serve to preventthe accumulation of snow and provide a slopedown which it can disperse.
Rose Pavilionby Dimitriy DeminColour SchemeThe colour scheme of the pavilion is similar toflowers with five interlocking rings in blue, black,red, yellow and green. Giving this Olympic colourreference to each of the columns makes the pavil-ion a visible, recognisable and more memorableplace. The columns and ceiling of the pavilionpainted gray are the interactive screen designedfor video projections.

The aestheticof Constructivism is interwoven with moderntechnology, and highlights the golden rule in theproportions between the heights of the columns,dome and the pavilion itself.
Rose Pavilionby Dimitriy DeminSection А-АThe structure of the pavilion is divided into twomain load-bearing parts, merging harmoniouslywith each other: the dome and the columns. Bothare made of the same material, manufactured byRoboFold. The 3-D modelling and engineeringdesign use computer tools developed by thecompany Rhino-in, based on the Rhinoceros 3Dprogramme.

The software is made available forthe manufacture of a diverse range of buildingelements.Components of the Rose Pavilion will be made atRoboFolds factory in London, which is equippedwith CNC machines and two six-axis robots. Thesecombine high precision with a faithful renderingof the architectural design.Component parts of the pavilion will betransported from the factory and assembled onsite within a period of two weeks. Installationdoes not require the use of a crane: scaffolding isadequate. A specialised team of three people canputupthepavilionunderanyweatherconditions.Software Production Construction

The columns and dome can be turnedinto a screen for live shows in both conventionaland 3D formats. After dusk the pavilion willhave additional LED lighting which requiresapproximately 10kw of electricity. The powersupply can be housed inside one the five weight-bearing columns.projection mapping
