Bamboo Pavilion

LIN Architecture as Architects

What was the brief?
Knowing that the activation of public space has always been an important part of rural construction projects, the main focus of this experiment was to consider how space can shape behavior and become a social generator. The space is vertically organized—with its spatial enclosure highlighted—to entice people to break boundaries and interact with family members and strangers alike. People spend their time resting, talking, and transitioning around this installation. They build up a sense of intimacy and connection by traveling from one section to another.

What were the key challenges?
The ecological choice to use bamboo as the primary material shaped the pre-material production, processing, and on-site installation of construction. After being selected in the growing environment, bamboo is transported to the construction site after being subjected to high-temperature cooking, carbonization, and corrosion treatment.
