an experiment of archetype LIN ARCHITECTURE

 

following wood pavilion #1, LIN architects continues its spatial experiments in zhenjiang, china, with a second small-scale temporary building named ‘wood pavilion #2’. the project examines architectural archetypes such as the primitive hut or sacred church and proposes a design approach that tackles both micro and macro issues.

 

the 50 sqm timber structure is composed of four main walls and stained in a deep red color. the layered design features various openings and curved seats, which offer different spatial experiences, various views, and a multitude of pathways to take.

based on previous theoretical research, wooden pavilion #2 is a prototype combining theory and practice: based on a human scale, each section of the pavilion is used to set different spaces to guide people and their interaction patterns.

 

in terms of the specific design process, the formation strategy of wooden pavilion #2 begins from the human scale, and then combines proxemics, behaviorology, and ergonomics to further set up the specific path and behavior of visitors in the space. therefore, people carry out various social activities in the various sections of the pavilion, while enjoying the harmonious natural environment of the river in the west, and the humanistic environment of the village in the east.

previously, there was a long-standing lack of pleasant and functional public spaces in the surrounding villages. wooden pavilion #2 not only creates a dialogue with the traditional architectural forms of the village, but also serves the local residents who, in their leisure time, can communicate and enjoy the harmonious relationship between the architectural space and its surrounding nature.

 

the theoretical nature of the social relationship between space and people is illustrated by the villagers’ actual use of the building, which becomes an important public space node to stimulate the vitality of the surrounding community. in addition, wooden pavilion #2 has become a must-see destination for tourists, becoming a significant and important part of the rural economy.
