Logistic Republic Automation Warehouse

JC Architecture as Architects

In contrast to traditional forklift, logistical automation utilizes computer software and automated machinery to improve the efficiency of transporting warehouse goods. Logistic automation saves time and reduces the workforce required to run a facility. Thus the majority of logistic properties seeks to modify their warehouse towards utilizing this system. 

 

There is a great ratio divide between operating machineries and on-site staff, and conventional automation warehouses often lack well-designed spaces that houses employees who remain to operate and maintain the machineries. The challenge for Logistic Republic Automation Warehouse is to bridge the gap between the two. By revisiting the original key components of the warehouse industry, evaluating materials that have been used in the past, we were curious to see what are some possible options for the future of this industry due to the cost efficiency restraint of steel shed design in Taipei.

 

The project is accomplished through the use of plastic covers found in refrigeration facilities, graphic patterns used to indicate safety and different programmatic areas, and exposing certain parts of drywall to indicate the progression of warehouse construction. With a center designed for human interaction, allowing better human inhabitation, it alters what people normally perceives as warehouse culture.
