From the architect. Utilizing a by-product material as a means of invoking the temporary pavilion with a temporary material wood edges cut from hardwood boards give a standardized object to build upon creating a field in which to inhabit. By operating on the edge of definitive material, neither board nor wood chip, the wood edge becomes the temporal object between two phases.

In the same light the pavilion offers the capacity to be an edge condition of construction. The methodical mode of stacking and maneuvering the edges is in itself on the edge of a mode of construction. The flat stacking method gives way to opportunities for expansion and contraction of the volume between the material. The variable of stacking techniques allow for light to move into the pavilion only through the spaces between the edges transforming the edge condition into an ephemeral effect.

Section B
Section B

The standardized one inch thick wood edge and weight of the hardwood compress the stack into a inhabitable nest stabilized by its dimension and assembly. While dis-assembly is the reverse operation, the disposal of the material is a process of returning the wood edges to the hardwood mill as to reenter the recycling process that would otherwise take place.

Original concept is from two people but not these two. There is something fishy here. You can't just add your name to other peoples work. One of these two designers is the real slim shady. Please stand up. This is not BC, just someone who knows what is really going on.

When we were children, we usually played like that. Not that big, of course.

Stephen Guan · June 16, 2011

And what's this for? They want it to be a landmark?
What if the wind comes?

You should take a look at the British Pavilion at Shanghai Expo...

Oh, I'm sure they LOOKED at it. Unfortunately, that's about as far as it went...
