Lightscape Pavilion Art Installation by Daisuke Nagatomo

Home > Winners > #35863


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Lightscape Pavilion

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Art Installation

INSPIRATION:
Lightscape Pavilion combines digital fabrication methods with local specific material, such as bamboo dowels. The design concept is inspired by the traditional Chinese lantern, which is made with bamboo and paper. This pavilion is a lightweight structure, accompanied with curved resting benches and lighting. In the evening, the lights gently pass through thin bamboo dowels and create a soft, delicate atmosphere.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Lightscape Pavilion was installed on the top of Treasure Hill in Taipei, where is an old settlement with a vision of an artist compound. The contrast between the new and the old, villagers and the artists, creates an interesting dialogue, which can be experience by the visitors.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Treasure Hill in Taipei is an old settlement with a vision of an artist compound. The contrast between the new and the old, villagers and the artists, creates an interesting dialogue, which can be experience by the visitors. To echo Treasure Hill’s spirit, MisoSoupDesign’s founder Daisuke Nagatomo and Minnie Jan believes it is important to inherit the old to innovate the new. Situated at the highest point of Treasure Hill, the Lightscape Pavilion becomes a focal point that can be seen from far away. The design concept is inspired by the traditional Chinese lantern, which is made with bamboo and paper. This pavilion is a lightweight structure, accompanied with curved resting benches and lighting. In the evening, the lights gently pass through thin bamboo dowels and create a soft, delicate atmosphere.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Lightscape Pavilion exams possibility of utilizing digital fabrication tools, such as CNC milling machine and laser cutter for full-scale architectural assembly. By incorporating standardized dowels for most of structural members, the digitally fabricated acrylic joints plays major role of forming an organic shape structure. The focal point of this experimental project is to propose a local solution of global digital fabrication phenomenon.

CHALLENGE:
The most challenging point for the pavilion assembly was to figure out the structural capability of the hollow bamboo columns. Intensive structural test was made for several prototypes to exam its capability and finally configured weaving bamboo dowels structural system. Bamboo dowel is not only the essence of the design, but also traditional inheritance of Asian culture. Lightscape Pavilion is creative combination of tradition and new production technologies.
