Home > Winners > #54948


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Flock

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Architectural Art Installation

INSPIRATION:
The formation of the flock resulted from the analysis of the company logistical bar charts, as well as the movement of both vehicular and pedestrian traffic around the site.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Bean Buro was tasked with creating a new visitor experience for Kerry Logistics headquarter at a cargo centre in an industrial area of Hong Kong, with the aim of creating an inspiring experience for elite customers through the introduction of contemporary art, while also reflecting the industrial context of the cargo centre.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
At night, they glow and pulsate in multiple colours to create an interactive and wind like rhythm. The formation of the flock resulted from the analysis of the company logistical bar charts, as well as the movement of both vehicular and pedestrian traffic around the site.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in May 2015 in Hong Kong and finished in October 2016.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Building Materials, Construction Components, Structures & Systems Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Each column was made with power coated metal mesh with integrated LED tubes in the centre, programmed to produce a different lighting colours as part of the swarming formation with other columns that responds to the traffic and people movement.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The columns vary from 500mm to 3000mm. Each has a diameter of 200mm. They start from one end and gently rise in a denser pattern towards the entrance of the building.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
This project researches into a tectonic system that is site specific, and responds to the movements of the surroundings. It proposes a dynamic grid that allows the installation to be appreciated from all approaches and intuitively guides visitors towards the entrance through a subtle increase in height.

CHALLENGE:
The creative process consisted of various computer modelling and lighting simulations, as well as physical prototyping at 1 to 100, and also 1 to 1 scales. The design went through various iterations in order to comply with local statutory regulations and budget constraints. The end result was highly successful in the way the original vision could be sustained through to the end.

CLIENT/STUDIO/BRAND DETAILS
NAME:
Bean Buro

PROFILE:
The studio is an emerging architecture and interiors practice from London and Paris, led by Lorène Faure and Kenny Kinugasa-Tsui, with a team of international designers to provide architecture, interior, installation, furniture, product and masterplanning design services. The Hong Kong studio was opened in 2013. The diversity of the practice with its collaborators reinforces a core vision for the practice: to respond to the exchanges of global cultural narratives, incorporating overlapping design disciplines specializing in the social, economical and political production of urban spaces. We believe architecture is an emotional, spatial experience produced by both the user and the author. Our design methodologies stem from the observation, speculation and analysis of contextual narratives. These narratives, or ‘stories’, generate dynamic exchanges of historical, environmental, cultural and social factors, resulting in highly inventive interventions while preserving plenty of intellectual wit. COLLABean, as an integrated part of Bean Buro, is a trans-disciplinary platform for collaborations between practice, research and academia. COLLABean can provide design research services for business organisations, and wherever appropriate, to involve specialists’ input from a network of highly reputable designers, academicians and researchers in the design field. The practice has since produced a string of successful interior architecture projects for luxury residential clients as well as workplace designs for reputable companies such as Cheil, Leo Burnett, Warner Music, and has been awarded Silver Winner in the Asia Pacific Interior Design Award 2015, Runner Up in Architizer A+ Awards 2015, Gold, Silver & Bronze Winner in the A’ Design Awards, and Finalist Winner of the 13th Modern Decoration International Media Award. The studio has a rigorous methodology of exploring spatial narratives through conceptual drawings and models that explore the humanistic aspects of design, and has been featured on Archdaily, Elle Decor and Wallpaper* Magazine.
