DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Wishing Pavilion

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Cultural Celebration

INSPIRATION:
Wishing Pavilion inspired by the unique custom of the burning tower, the masterpiece of bricks. The reinterpretation of burning tower transformed into contemporary architecture. The design with a curved facade formed a double helix structure, which created imagery of rising dragon and burning tower signature architectural features. Nearly five thousand pieces of recycled plastic bricks made of HDPE used to construct the pavilion.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The Mid-Autumn Festival, falling at middle of eighth month of lunar calendar, is a major festival among Chinese people and it has been celebrated in Chinese communities with a long history. This year, a six-meter high grand Wishing Pavilion, in unique shape of a Southern Chinese burning tower, will not only bright up Mid-Autumn night of Hong Kong, it will also lighten up a path in environmental construction having demonstrated a successful adoption of recycled plastic bricks in buildings.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Mid-Autumn Festival is one of the significant Chinese traditional festivals. In different areas, rituals are various and unique, but they are all praying for harvest, wealth and health. The design gathered the celebration in Hong Kong, Taiwan and Southern China and reinterpreted into the contemporary pavilion. Inside the pavilion, visitors can pray and make wish toward the geometric lantern made by the National Intangible Cultural Heritage traditional paper crafting technique in China.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project exhibited in September 2019 at Victoria Park, Hong Kong.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Wishing Pavilion used nearly five thousand pieces of recycled plastic bricks made of High-Density Polyethylene, Type two, with a comparatively high melting point and heat tolerance level to construct the pavilion. An LED light programmed with lighting effect is then installed into each plastic brick to complement the festive atmosphere of the occasion. People entering the pavilion can appreciate the mid-autumn full moon through a skylight opening at the top of the structure and the geometric fire lantern is created and articulated with the National Intangible Cultural Heritage traditional paper crafting technique in China.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Researchers in various countries have found that High-Density Polyethylene, HDPE, is very slow in undergoing microbial degradation and can stay intact in the environment for centuries, making it an ideal material for buildings and other construction projects. To a large extent, we determine to use these recycled plastic bricks will inspire the public and help to address the crisis that plastic waste all over the world are increasing at such an alarming rate that it is affecting our environment in an adverse manner.

CHALLENGE:
Wishing Pavilion is built within thirteen-days on-site construction period. To deliver the pavilion within a short period, we standardise the design in a modular system which divided into fifty-six components and utilised the pre-fabrication process to complete all the production procedures. Moreover, the pavilion aimed to endure the extreme weather in Hong Kong, as well as avoid any permanent damage to the football ground. The structure of Wishing Pavilion with metal structure and platform. No footing is employed to protect the floor. The pavilion is only stabilised with a platform structure weighing approximately sixty-five tones.
