DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Prototype for Temporary Sales Pavilion

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
-

INSPIRATION:
Reflecting on the wasted resources and design efforts behind the sales pavilion as an unique Chinese phenomena in recent years, and inspired by ancient Chinese wooden structures that can be taken apart and put together again.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
OPEN conceived a prototype V1.0 of standard temporary sales pavilion that enables speedy construction, can be adaptable to different programs and sites, and more importantly, dissembled after each use and reassembled at another location. This re-useable building is an experiment to test the ultimate potential of sustainability, not only in its realized physical form, but also the meaning in its life cycle. Devised from one modular system, the steel structural skeleton, and the composite floor panels made from steel and concrete, are prefabricated and bolted together on site. Both the solid aluminum panels and the glass panels take on the same module, which allows a somewhat free arrangement of openings on the façade according to different program requirement behind. Internally, the space is organized with one bridge that connects 5 boxes that each contains different types of functions. The interior décor can vary, as well as the positions of the five boxes.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
-

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in November 2012 and finished in August 2013 in Beijing, China.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Devised from one modular system, the steel structural skeleton, and the composite floor panels made from steel and concrete, are prefabricated and bolted together on site. The modular concepts extends to the building envelope – both the solid aluminum panels and the glass panels take on the same module, which allows a somewhat free arrangement of openings on the façade according to different program requirement behind. Internally, the space is organized with one bridge that connects 5 boxes that each contains different types of functions, yet allowing a large continuous open space to organize the public viewing and events. The interior décor can vary, as well as the positions of the five boxes. In this built case, a minimal yet colorful and futuristic atmosphere is created to counter the common expectation for the luxurious yet often compromised sales offices that the public is used to see around them. The pavilion presents itself from the outside as a simple horizontal silver tube floating above a sheet of water, recalling 1960s’ experimental space capsules. The visitors approach the building through a rising bridge over the reflecting pond, entering the pavilion from one end of the large tube, through the different functional spaces inside, exit on the other end of the tube, before they walk towards the show-flat behind.
