Text description provided by the architects.

For this building the use of the architectural material is determined by the characteristic of the user group; Millennial generation specifically Yolo group. The Yolo is a call to live life to its fullest extent. Therefore, material to use for the project has to reflect the theme. The choice to use one material over the others is a public exhibition of the architecture that architect wants to carry out.

The idea of material is settled down to use a PVC tube but in a different way. As the trend of the coming year (2019), Purplish had been considered for the color of choice. A range of purple is an outcome of a combination between the inner and the outer layer plus lighting effect.

We wrap the pavilion with the curtain wall of 5 kilometers PVC tubes. Installation is fixed at the top but let the bottom-end loose for sway effect by wind or people interaction. The main entrance has been shaped by cutting out a parabolic form. The curl at the free-end seem to be an issue at the beginning, but at the end everyone agrees that they add as a special characteristic to the project.
