Pavilion Cube

​立方

06   /   2016

To confront the design concept with 3D printing, to confront the definition of a cube. A pavilion and a cube. 

结合平面设计以及3D打印技术去改变一个“立方体”被普遍认知的固有形态。

        How can I make a cube personal, to represent my connection to it? How can I make a cube no longer be recognized as a cube?

        This cube pavilion  is in between rigidness and randomness in terms of the sharp exterior edges and smoothness inside.   

        Considering the limitation of the 3D printing technique, the printed pavilion and the programmed one stay as two separate designs, as they all have their own texture, which has a different impact on the perception of the space. 

         Standing at the park opposite to the Royal Academy of Art, the metal material becomes a huge contrast to the background, so does its organic form. The scale of the cube on site also challenge people’ s perception of cube.

        我一直思考着如何去诠释一个代表我个人对正方体理解的设计。思考着如何让人们打破对一个长宽高等值的空间的固有成见。
        这个位于火车站对面的草坪广场上的“立方体”中和着严谨的90°顶部边缘和抽象的具有弧度的内部。两者构成一定的不和谐但可以接受的对比。
        因为3D打印技术的限制,打印出来的比例模型和程序模拟的设计因为材料的不同似乎成为两个不同的设计。这种材料上质感的不同对内部空间感也带来了不同的影响。
        在程序中模拟的金属材料配合着流线型的切口和棱线与实际中的草坪环境形成反差。此外,立方体的实际规模也是探讨人们对立方体的认知的限度。
