ResoNet Pavilion - Sinan Mansions Pavilion by Creative Prototyping Unit

DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
ResoNet Pavilion - Sinan Mansions

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Pavilion

INSPIRATION:
Inspired by the resonance frequencies inherent in the natural environment, Creative Prototyping Unit has developed a series of Resonet projects which create physical and ephemeral conditions. The form of Pavilion was inspired by the shape of Jingle Bell which implies visitors to ring the New Year's bell and make wishes. Its colorful dressing reflects a Chinese fairy tale story of the Phoenix to bring up the prosperity and good wealth ahead.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
ResoNet Pavilion is commissioned by Sinan Mansions as part of a series of 'Modern Sinan' events for the celebration of Chinese New Year in 2017. It consists of a temporary pavilion plus a 'resonet' attached on the inner surface, an interactive LED light installation. It employs Low-Fi techniques to visualise the resonance frequencies inherent in the natural environment, via the interaction of the public and surrounding elements detected by a LED net. While the LED net is almost invisible during the day time, the pavilion inner translucent polypropylene surface provides a backdrop background particularly at night. The outer-skin colour will be constantly changing and depended on visitors’ viewing perspective and peripheral lighting conditions.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The Pavilion illuminates the public realm in response to vibration stimuli. Visitors can come over to take a rest, interact with LED net and make Spring Festival wishes with their friends and families. At the same time, the Pavilion can be used as a center stage for hosting outdoor events. It has become a hottest meeting point during the festival of Chinese New Year.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project exhibited from 30th of December 2016 until 16th of Febuary 2017 at Sinan Mansions LED Plaza in Shanghai

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The name resonet is an amalgamation of the words resonance and network. Resonet is an interactive light installation which is aiming to explore the boundaries between art, culture, architecture and technology to create physical and ephemeral conditions.

CHALLENGE:
The biggest challenge is to find the appropriate material, construction methodology to achieve the balance between the structural stiffness, stability and lightness of installation. The shell structure has played an important role but setting up its parametric model is a challenge. Dealing with tolerance for site installation is also another issue.

NAME:
Sinan Mansions

PROFILE:
Sinan Mansions area is an immense urban regeneration, which includes the redevelopment of 49 colonial mansions from the '20s and '30s into four projects: the Hotel Massenet; a commercial stretch of F&B and retail; luxury condos; and corporate villas. This area is bounded by Fuxing Road to the north, Si'nan Road to the west, and Chongqing Road to the east. The revamped villas now mostly house restaurants and bars. Shaded by tall plane trees planted by the French authorities 100 years ago, this is a pleasant area to stroll and perhaps stop for a coffee and some cake. Some of the villas in the same group are now an upmarket hotel (Hotel Massenet). ("Sinan Road" was formerly "Route Massenet" in the French period.) Only one villa, the former residence of Zhou Enlai, is preserved (as a museum) in a form which shows what these villas might have looked like when they were in residential use.
