This company later tasked them for an design of employee cafeteria in they factory. The collaboration resulted in further project, the design of the Czech pavilion in Milan. Together with revitalization of the Prague Waltrovka district, the young architects become an internationally active studio.

ReUsable Architecture


Czech Expo Pavilion
The Czech Pavilion for the world fair Expo in Italian Milan was designed with a clear idea of its later reuse.

At the 2015 Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism\Architecture in Chinese Shenzen, Aaron Betsky said: “We certainly have enough buildings already. We continue to build more, using up un-renewable natural resources and open space that belongs to us all, when we should be figuring out how to make better use of what we already have”.

The Czech Pavilion for the Expo in Milan was designed as a prefabricated modular structure, with a clear idea of its later reuse. As a matter of fact, the typical feature of this kind of a world fair is rather a large investment into each pavilion construction, having, however, only a temporary character.

The construction system of prefabricated modules is ideal for a simple disassembly of the structure and its transfer to another place. The Pavilion was transferred back to the Czech Republic and is going to fulfill the function of a research centre of prefabricated construction.

For this approach, the Pavilion was awarded the bronze medal for architecture.
