experimental architecture in zhenjiang

 

seeking a new architectural space prototype, LIN architects presents an experimental project, dubbed ‘wood pavilion #1.’ this spatial experiment is located near the river in the tourist area of jiangxin island in zhenjiang, jiangsu province. in the design of the work, the design team gives up the consideration of functional elements and start to look for keywords that can define spatial elements in the environment.

 

after analyzing the site, the design focuses on three keywords: ‘ergonomics, proxemics, and behaviorology.’ the scale of human behavior is one of the concerns of this project. research on the behavior of different people is a very good design resource for architects. by observing and understanding the behavior of people, designers can discover all kinds of possibilities of space.

lin architecture’s exploration of personal and social space

 

LIN architecture’s wood pavilion is driven by the concept of proxemics, which was developed by columbia university anthropologist, edward t. hall, in his book, hidden scales. in this project, architects deepen and extend the concept, applying it to the category of physical space, discussing how intimate space, private space, social space, and public space are defined and designed at different scales.

 

regarding behavior, from the perspective of architects yoshiharu tsukamoto and momoyo kaijima, human, nature, and architecture are discussed as a whole, because the study of this case does not involve the category of urban daily life pattern. therefore, the behaviorology of various elements in the natural environment was studied and explored. breeze, sunshine, the sound of waves, drizzle, sweet osmanthus fragrance, affecting feelings, perceptions, touch, hearing, visual elements, are the materials of the design. through keyword research, architects began to create new forms of space in response to the various design elements surrounding it.

a wooden pavilion shaped by human behavior

 

human behavior, such as sitting, squatting, lying down, meditating, listening, peeping, wandering, overlooking, and even staring, shapes the form of the wood pavilion by LIN architecture. the act of light, the rising of the sun, the setting of the sun, the passing of the last light, the coming of the lamp, the illumination, is a dialogue between space and time. the surrounding environment, sea breeze brushing, leaves rustling, frogs chirping, cicadas singing, is the medium of dialogue between people and space.
