Biobased Creations of Company New Heroes, together with the Dutch Design Foundation started an experiment with other design, knowledge and building pioneers, to build an iconic biobased pavilion: The Growing Pavilion. With this structure we show the possibilities, and above all the wonderful beauty, of biobased construction.

“The current pollution and unhealthy ways of constructing and living has encouraged the studio to work with bio-based materials in a beautiful way.”


We’re very proud that The Growing Pavilion has been awarded several times:

  • Architizer – A+Award finalist in the Architecture+ New Materials category
  • STARTS Prize – Honorary Mention 2021
  • Dezeen Awards – Highly Commended: Small Building of The Year 2020
  • ARC20 – Innovatie Award
