-FINALIST of Non Architecture Award Competition | Category: Landscape
Highly inspired by nature, specifically how she uses an uncountable amount of discrete factors to guide the formation of every single structure, from tree barks to lava flows, an in-depth investigation was conducted to better understand how nature arches, contours, and grows itself when it comes across restrictions.
Flow Fields endeavours to go beyond biomimicry by entering a dialogue with nature as a designer, offering a glimpse at the fields around us and a respectful coexistence between the structure and its site.
Natural obstructions such as trees and rocks govern openings to the ground and sky, allowing the users to witness the existing fields of natural elements and how responsive architecture can be. Due to its high flexibility and fast renewal capabilities, bamboo was the primary resource used to materialize organic curves and achieve a low impact, clean construction process. Equally orchestrated on the one hand by human intended functions and on the other by environmental determinants, the whole structure develops itself according to the given landscape and boundaries. This non-anthropocentric system endeavours to offer a unique, customizable architectural experience.
This engrained adaptability and scalability allows different formations to emerge while keeping a similar, rationalized, respectful building process.
Project Type: Open space pavilion with leisure, community driven activities such as gardening, play spaces, assembly areas and outdoor exhibitions.
