Rusted steel pavilion exploring the dialogue between human control and nature.
“... so the pavilion and plants are living in a controlled symbiosis.”
“Framed” is a pavilion exploring the dialogue between human control and nature. The constructed metal pattern symbolizes the rational way we control everything and on it grows climbing plants that will eventually cover it completely. In affects the structure will be hidden and the control invisible. The Climbers are a family of plants that only grows if supported by a bearing construction. This way the plants are actually dependent on the structure to grow and so the pavilion and plants are living in a controlled symbiosis.
“Framed is a pavillion framing nature but in effect it also frames us.”
The pavillion consist of 3 segments of 10 frames that together create the pattern. Each frame draws a simple line in the pattern and the order and space in between each frame is made to create a 3-dimensionality of the otherwise 2D pattern.
For material I chose rusted metal because of it’s rough and strict feel and to create and put emphasis on the contrast to the rich organic and romantic feel of the Climbers.
