bed, and canopy being morphed in between and creating a sequential circular
structure which provide unique contrast of artificial timber frame being
merge into natural landscape.
As the basis of the construction, 3 pieces of 30x30mm standard section
cedar timber rods are screwed to assemble a tripod unit which is one of
most primitive and simple self-stand structure. 120 tripod units are arrayed
in 360dgree with gradual undulation to accommodate various activities on
and under the structure.
This simple assembly system enables it to construct and dismount easily
and quickly in anywhere to be reusable. Also size of the structure can
be adjustable based on various requirements in different locations and
occasions. Throughout the interactive furniture scape, people can gather
around bench zone, while lean bed zone invite them to have a short nap.
Canopy zone provide a shadow under the eaves to protect against the strong
The structure aims to provide a large single place, at the same time the
space can perceive as multiple places with unique characteristics in each
section. The duality of simplicity / complexity controls distances among
people and place in between to evoke pleasant spatial quality to share
