Arbor Arena Parametric Pavillion by Selvagen

Home > Winners > #76313


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Arbor Arena

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Parametric Pavillion

INSPIRATION:
The whole space was conceived as a metaphor related to the tree, due to its meaningful symbolism as a natural element representational of life and the ludic aspect it brings in the memories of playful and comforting moments shared with these natural elements, that will deeply affect the experiences people will have when inside the arena.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The project for the arena at CasaCor Pernambuco 2018, America’s most important collective of interior design, architecture and landscape, was developed by parametric design’s methodologies which consists in programming design and architectural solutions through computational algorithms.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Although it is a pavillion for a temporary event where all of its projects are demolished by the end of it, thus wasting the investments made, the project for Arbor Arena was conceived as a modular structure so that each part may be disassembled and rebuilt elsewhere. Afterwards, the city's public botanical garden aquired the whole space and it now serves as a place for events at its full and permanent potential.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in July 2018 to be finished in September and was exhibited in CasaCor Pernambuco until November 2018, being now rebuilt at Recife's Botanical Garden.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
In addition to being a space for lectures and debates, it is also a resting area – in contrast with the event which is mostly for visiting – as its located in a central point at the end of the whole course. The internal landscaping has the intention of bringing a native aspect to the vegetation used and, therefore, tropical species such as acai and ravenalas compose the environment. And in order to preach the importance of sustainability in the project, the existing coconut palm was preserved. The deck forms the base that provides stability for the entire structure above it and the grandstand, formed by modules that arise from the floor, generates a topography within the space. Just like the roots of a tree, people can have the experience of being able to walk, climb, sit on it. The structure’s woodwork made in macaranduba, corresponds to the trunk that offers support to all the rest of the Arena’s component parts. Its pieces are fixed by metal vertices and both corten steel entry frames present a perforated pattern referring to the triangular design. The closure made in Super MDF as triangular based pyramids presents a variation of heights in each one of it, which become flatter near the grandstand and gradually increase towards the stage. They feature decreasing openings from the base of the structure, which are closed by curtains, giving a greater visual permeability and thermal comfort to the space, besides being able to filter the incident light. In order to offer protection from the rain, the faces were selected according to the angulation that provides the least accumulation of water possible. At their top central point, the modules are interrupted to insert a zenith opening allowing natural light to enter, just as light rays pass through the treetops. Where there is also a luminous sculpture descending from that point, as a representation of the flower of the Arena, with LED strips embedded inside the wooden profiles that refracts and lightens only the edges of the acrylic pieces.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Gross Built Area: 65 sqm

TAGS:
Parametric, Geodesic, Dome, Brazil

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
By analyzing the morphology of a tree it was possible to understand the functional particularity of each component for the construction of the whole, which was fundamental for Arbor Arena’s location, floor, structure, roof and lighting, as the tree’s environment, root, trunk, crown and flower.

CHALLENGE:
Parametric design and complex geometries still aren't very explored in Brazil, therefore the process of its fabrication and execution had many technical difficulties due to the lack of knowledge and development in this field. The end result is the representation of how it is possible to bring this type of architecture to Brazil through efforts in training the local workmanship for its construction along with digital techniques in design and fabrication.

NAME:
Selvagen

PROFILE:
The name Selvagen comes from the term in portuguese "selva": a forest biome known for its dense vegetation and vast biodiversity in equatorial and tropical regions. And also the term "generative" which refers to a computational methodology that utilizes algorithms capable of generating a infinite number of artifacts with a finite number of parameters. A startup that combines nature and technology in the development of design and architecture artifacts. It designs species through biolearning, computational programming and artificial inteligence.
