andrés jaque: sweet parliament home at the gwangju design biennale

following up on our previous coverage on the project, here are some completed images of ‘sweet parliament home’ by madrid-based practice andres jaque arquitectos at the gwangju design biennale 2011 in korea. the pavilion is a direct response to the current phenomenon in seoul where the concept of domesticity is spatially fragmented and constantly in a state of flux.

drawing from a five year research that explored all venues of domestic interiors, the pavilion draws from a number of different urban pockets that together represent the idea of ‘home’. they are largely driven by social networks and individually provide a spatial forum for meeting and discussion, such as a karaoke bar, a public sauna, and a cafe.

partially wrapped in a translucent skin, the pavilion is defined by four spaces that create the border of the layout. the areas area encouraged to be inhabited by specialized groups while the common space in the centre provides a neutral platform for social cross-pollination by a small garden. to see drawings of the projects and to read more about it, click here for our previous article. be sure to check out the video at the bottom of this page to find out more.
