DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
The Infinite

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Vibrant Reading Structure

INSPIRATION:
The Smart Phone dominates the knowledge input to many of Chinese citizens intensively now. The Human perception to the real, self-motivate knowledge seeking between the actual environment of book and virtual imagination are decaying. The Vibrant Reading Structure is aimed to create three latent reading experiences of perceptible, resilient and inhabitable to emerge active process and meaning of knowledge finding in the age of growing global Exosomatization.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
While the citizens are thinking and recalling the knowledge from the book they are free to seeking or sensing relevant space to what they read. In reverse, the citizens may move around at the reading structure of scale multiplicity before they start to read. It implicates the infinite possibilities of discovering the knowledge intensity from different distance, perspective and position emerged by the actual form and space, where transitional and vibrant experiences between the mind and the space are naturally cooperated with an endless reading form to their perpetual and every time new reality. The reading structure performs as a kind of form together with the floating books pattern language it interweaves that emerges new knowledge sharing, constructing the reciprocal perception and involvement between the reader’ s discovery and book’s inner world, between the knowledge and the real, the past and the future.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Postures of reading discovery encounter at multiple-scale forms of inhabitable reading space that celebrate the subconscious and free performance of the readers’ body movements considered as a new living knowledge flow and share while they are in their inner world of reading. The reading space, the floating books' pattern language and the readers at this moment become the new creative and transformative entity that is yet to come. Then each reader and their reading condition inherently re-creates and transforms the structure to a vibrant living synthesis. The multiple scale of resilient reading forms communicate with each individual’s body language generated naturally from the repeating and reading process between knowledge intensity and actual architectural form - while they move, they meet, they go up and down, they hide or inhabit temporally at either small wrapped space or at the very high open platform, they see and feel each other , in this way they are sharing each other’s knowledge discovery. So sharing here is not about how different people co-use one thing or resource, sharing here is about how to re-create new value and new entity infinitely from each individual’s knowledge discovery.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project design started in October 2016 in Hangzhou and finished in January 2017, and was Built in Yuyao in May 2017.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Interior Space and Exhibition Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Materials and Structure: Wooden Structure Fabrication Techniques: More than 2000 pieces of all different form of components are produced by Wooden Parts CNC Fabrication in Collaboration with Local Craftsman Carpenter Customization, Then Assembled Globally on Site.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Toal Area: 369 m2 The new structure was re-created on the existing urban commercial concrete box. The new reading structure consider the existing building characters carefully for mutual compatibility and overall transformation. Two elevated reading platforms creates a transcendent reading journey from bottom cave like space to the upwards floating books’ patterns. Rather than passive and isolated program based space zoning, the Multiple-scale reading forms actively generate the infinite reciprocal interaction between reading-imagination movements, integrated programs within the reading process and the knowledge in book involved, re-created, constantly. The client has already deployed the bookstore as the coffee, the meeting and gathering salon, the gallery, the workshop, the self-motivate educational hub, the retailing for local brand shoes and handicrafts, etc.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The vibrant reading structure is a design research project that is focused on the reciprocal perception and active knowledge discovery and re-creation between the human body movements and architectural form within the reading process. The project is aimed to to construct the living dynamic reading structure that has the capacity to exchange the reading performance and experience with the human reading perception and relevant body movements. Looking for the meaning and dynamic relationship between vibrant architectural form and knowledge intensity from reading and repeating discoveries. The projects have researched the scale multiplicity of comprehensive reading behaviors to localize the resilient relationship between the reading perception process and the its spatial performance. By iterating possible local reading structure prototypes, the bottom-up approach has been applied to construct the mereological structure. As a result, the readers' sensory visibility for reading, sharing, imaging and re-creating is repeated naturally, whose reading process of perception and exchanging are co-existing and co-creating with the structure and the floating books' patterns. The project is trying to examine a mereological form of a bookstore’s re-creation built on the existing stereotyped commercial structure in Chinese third-tier city of Yuyao as a new vibrant reading synthesis which architectural time and life can be self acted in relation to readers’ creativity and involvement.

CHALLENGE:
In this project the scale in general and the scale of reading need to be re-considered and defined. Because from only functional aspect's consideration, the scale is supposed to be suitable for common reading requirement and habit. However, in this project, the scale is not the mechanical measurement tool or sign to be filled with matter and social function, the scale is being considered as the trans-matter that could co-evolve and co-exist for exchanging the perpetual reading experience with reader imagination and movement that are yet to come. The construction of scale multiplicity of resilient reading structure that can totally and perfectly contributing and communicating with the imaginative reading discoveries has been really created at the very limited size of urban commercial concrete box. Also, even this is a very small project, whose aim is not limited within. The vibrant reading structure also tries to build the connection between the urban pedestrian and the stereotyped commercial building envelope and its interior activities. This reading structure is re-created on the existing box-like space that can be recognized as a kind of strategy for urban regeneration in contemporary Chinese cities.
