Forest Pavilion / nArchitects
nARCHITECTS’ Forest Pavilion was completed in May 2011 and serves as a shaded meeting and performance space for visitors to the Da Nong Da Fu Forest and Eco-park in
Hualien County, Taiwan.
Purpose of the Project
The project was conceived within the context of an art festival organized by Taiwan’s Forestry Bureau to raise public awareness of a new growth forest that is being threatened by development.
The pavilion is comprised of eleven vaults built with freshly cut green bamboo, a material first used by nARCHITECTS in the internationally acclaimed 2004 Canopy for MoMA P.S.1. As an extension of techniques developed in 2004’s Canopy for MoMA/P.S.1, the 60’ diameter and 22’ tall pavilion is built with green bamboo.
Passive House by Karawitz Architecture
The form of restaurant basically was inspired by an umbrella. But we want to make a “giant” and an “unusual“ umbrella. The “giant” form would be functioned as a “shelter”. A group of “shelter” then become a “building”, which hopefully could protect the restaurant guest from sun, wind, and rain. We make the “giant” bamboo umbrella in different size (the width and the height) for arranging the “giant” umbrella in such a way that each “umbrella” could overlap each other to become a “giant” roof.
