Pointe Pavilion / J.R Architects
Textual content description offered by the architects. The Pointe Pavilion is in entrance of the Taiwan Railway Liuying Station and is an built-in sidewalk system. A number of mild and pure geometric curved metallic plates are gently positioned on the striated website. The circulation and nodes are redefined and reconfigured right into a multifunctional sequence by the materiality of metallic plates and crimson brick pavement. The pavilion is a weather-protected hall, a neighborhood resting spot, and a bus station.
By way of design, the structural body resembles the “dragonfly wings,” impressed by the dragonflies generally seen in native fields. As an natural public artwork, it avoids the present tree branches, preserving the chance for the locals to collect and chat below the tree. The cross-shaped columns dodge a number of underground agricultural irrigation techniques, dancing round them and arranging them in a ballet-like formation. The lighting system is built-in into the construction, permitting the fixtures to turn out to be a part of the design language. The association of the ground tiles and night-time uplighting resembles how a dragonfly gently touches the floor of the water.
The reflectivity of the silver plate creates a distinction with the encompassing context that might encourage the guests to re-discover the native cultural roots, to re-gain sense of the delicate colours of neighboring homes and vegetation, or the dynamic mild and shadow when a prepare passes, all of the whereas that pure skylight shines by the elliptical translucent dragonfly wings with a sample softly sprinkled on the nodes, together with the site-specific furnishings collectively hope to rekindle the sense of place within the neighborhood.
