Concrete Pavilion / LIN structure
Textual content description offered by the architects. Concrete Pavilion is a pumping station within the countryside exterior of Eryuan Botou Village, in Yunnan, China.
Exterior of the village, a lovely subject cleanses the ears and eyes with chirping frogs within the rice bushes, the whirling of the rice stalks, and the dripping of the sunshine rain. So far as the attention can see, there are rolling meanders, each of the mountains and of the rice paddies. Nonetheless, wanting down from the other facet of the hill, the fields are a distinct story, with canals and paths dividing the fields into varied formed fragments which are fairly distinctive.
It’s the job of the museum to utilize the identification of the house to supply villagers and vacationers with each infinite views and fragmented views of the fields on the similar time. In current historical past, only a few buildings have dotted the panorama of the sphere, aside from a small pump home, the predecessor of the concrete pavilion, the place villagers used to gather water and electrical energy.
A number of identities of the pump home. Within the context of a brand new spherical of rural building, many fundamental designs and public homes within the village are looking for a breath of recent life. Along with assembly the each day wants of villagers for water and electrical energy for irrigation, the pump home has its personal identification to think about. In approaching the design course of, the designers endeavored to interpret these identities from totally different views.
Image (the interpretation of symbols and the replica of spirit). The acute abstraction of cultural parts from the encircling villages, after which translated to the thickness of the house, is the technique of manipulating the symbols; the dialogue between the architectural house and the atmosphere, and the dialogue with the villagers and vacationers, is a symbolic metaphor of the symbols.
Type (the prototype of modeling and heterogeneous carnival) Sloping roofs, shadow partitions, excessive and low home windows, platforms, ascending steps, and skylight holes are simply among the village’s numerous architectural parts which, by means of modifications and extensions, have translated into the juxtaposed architectural symbols within the house, positioned within the subject and accommodating the assorted parts. In parallel, it supplies differing statement behaviors of the atmosphere and the house, equivalent to wanting from afar after which up shut.
Ingredient (the best way spatial parts work together with one another). Though the constituent parts are frequent to structure, they’re organized unconventionally, equivalent to shadow partitions with odd proportions, suspended platforms, damaged staircases, sloping sidewalls, half-arched ceilings, low facet home windows, and skylights with solely a single slit.
Diagram (instruments of Design and Era) As a design maneuver, there was a seek for spatial relationships and the abstraction of spatial ideas. The expertise of being in house is a dynamic, ever-changing, fragmented, transient state, the place separation and complexity coexist, and illustration helps us holistically and reflectively react to the experiential info.
Area (Full kind vs. fragmented inside) The outside of the shape is symbolic for villagers and possesses a sure integrity. Whether or not setting out for the fields early within the morning or returning with the hoe within the night, the stylized form is a static information. On the best way to plowing within the subject, the villagers learn its picture in several states. The inside of the house is chopped up, guided by a big staircase house that extends out into the inside and sides of the house. The skylight was designed so as to add curiosity to the exploration and is as a lot a medium for exterior statement because the platform.
Dialogue with the 4 seasons within the subject (a number of identities). In Yunnan, the climate within the fields is unpredictable, with rain pouring or falling all through the day by means of ever-colorful seasons. Acts of nature add gestures to the pores and skin of the constructing, making the façade a paintbrush within the subject. Thick clouds mirror on the partitions, contrasting with the pristine white. On sunny days, radiant daylight shines on the fabric, and the feel of the pores and skin turns into seen. When it rains, the pores and skin of the fabric turns into a canvas for the sky.
Supplies. Contemplating the issue of clarification and settlement of the farmland land, the principle metal construction and concrete hanging boards had been chosen for the end. The metal construction has three layers to fulfill the wants of shaping several types of areas, and the pores and skin is manufactured from concrete panels to mirror the interplay with environmental parts.
