The Bettina is a limited-edition architectural pavilion designed for REVOLUTION that debuted at Design Miami in 2015. It is simple in silhouette yet also a complex three-dimensional form. Recalling the iconic style and pyramidal form of the classic white tent, the contemporary pavilion is simultaneously geometrically taut and sensually draped across the structural frame. Each profile peak is extruded diagonally making a roof of two ridges that appear different from every angle. Whether perched over beachfront sands or hovering within an expansive green field, each individual pavilion will make a striking addition to the landscape. When linked together, multiple tents will make one large pavilion, defined by a series of undulating peaks that create a soft, crenellated profile on the horizon.

revolution is a collection of limited edition properties, ranging from functional pavilions to modular homes. the project — conceived by real estate developer robbie antonio — unites creatives such as daniel libeskind, sou fujimoto, and lenny kravitz’s company kravitz design to create a series of prefabricated, livable spaces. through the use of cutting-edge technology and cost-efficient production systems, the scheme seeks to democratize architecture by introducing designed spaces in exclusive collaboration with industry leading creatives. each pavilion and home is individually branded by its designer’s personal concept of spatial form and social function. the series was launched last year at design miami, with a prefabricated dining pavilion by zaha hadid taking center stage. read more on each of the designs below.
