Led by Ben van Berkel, UNStudio, the dutch architecture firm, has designed woven ‘Ellipsicoon‘ pavilion for Revolution Precrafted Series in Maila, Philippines. The pavilion is a mobile structure planned as a place of mindfulness, retreat, and rest.
Text description provided by architects. Sunlit and shaded, enclosed and open, the Ellipsicoon is a synthesis of inside and outside space. In its cocoon-like design, this garden pavilion extends the home into nature, creating an immediate sense of relaxation and recreation. It becomes both an inviting space for socialising, and a mindful retreat for withdrawal.
The continuous surface of this sculptural pavilion is woven from strands of high-density polyethylene (HDPE – 100% recyclable). Its curved sides taper inwards as they rise, creating a hollow knot-like structure with differently proportioned openings and a sunken seating area that follows the pavilion’s winding contours. Inside and outside spaces intertwine through these elliptical loops, opening the user to nature while being enclosed by the structure’s soft curves.
Italian Studio Luca Poian Forms , designed Camboo Pavilion for the Building Trust’s 2017 International Bamboo Festival in Phnom Penh , Cambodia . Text description provided by the architects. Conceived as the new centrepiece of the Building Trust’s International Bamboo Festival, our design for a landmark bamboo structure celebrates Cambodia’s richly layered history, tectonic tradition, and ethnographic context.
Our principal architect Ben van Berkel has long been interested in exploring spaces that go beyond function, creating more nuanced, reflective and meditative environments. The Ellipsicoon offers the user a place of temporary disengagement, where the practicalities, duties and interruptions of daily life can momentarily fade away, allowing the imagination to take over.
