Ripple Greenhouse / Fieldevo Design Studio + Lin Bo Yang Architects
Text description provided by the architects. How do you use the lightest measure to build a greenhouse in a dense, lively forest?
The visitor center is a transitional space between the interior and exterior of the garden gallery. After the crowd enters the exhibition area, about to enter the different solid building volumes and large gardens, the solid building volume isolates nature from the outside. The large garden lacks shade, and cannot provide a comfortable environment for people to communicate with nature, both of which separate the relationship between nature and humanity. We consider the visitor center as an intermediate space inside and outside the park, facing a large influx of tourists from the city into nature. How to Become a Sedimentation Tank Calms the body and mind of the masses Let the masses slow here and approach the surrounding trees.
Let’s first draw a complete circle with a diameter of 84 meters and divide it into 60 equal parts. The pie chart connects most of the trees at the base and retains most of the green space within the base, with the walls removed. By exposing the beam column system, preserved trees can also grow through beams and columns, and a lightweight pavilion-like design breaks the distinction between indoor and outdoor buildings.
The roof cladding material uses the common greenhouse computer board, which enables the vision to penetrate into the greenhouse and see the greenery of the forest. The general structural system uses white galvanized square tubes. The dimensions of the cross section of each column are 12.5 square centimeters. An attempt was made for visual resonance and integration with the trees in the forest using a dense column system.
The average height of the trees around it is 12 meters. We locate a large meadow square in the center of the circular base. The roof is 2.8 m higher than human scale, and gradually rises outward radially to a height of 9 m, forming a circular arc that connects the central grassland with the surrounding trees. At the same time, it implicitly defines in and out of the domain. From the outside, the roof is curved with a reverse stepped arch, draped from the entrance yard to the back, letting nature transform into a spectacle in the space. Connecting the relationship between people and nature, based on nature, buildings become a backdrop against nature and the masses.
