The fashion environment in manufactured nature.MANUFATURED NATUREArtificial nature is the product of human’s efforts of remaking nature with technologies. Unlike artificial nature, natural nature exists before the advent of human beings. As artificial nature comes into being, human beings become distinctive components in nature. In this sense, artificial nature and human beings are mutually constructive.

In other words, artificial nature and human beings share the same history.——《Artificial nature philosophy from the meta-philosophical perspective 》FASHION ENVIRONMENTArtificial Nature imitates mountains, forests, valleys and plants across seasons, and embeds smaller stores within the store, which echoes the ecosystem of the fashion trade. The whole process connects business formats, functions and forms.

The Ecosystem themed store design highlights the concept of nature, fashionable space layout, and form languages of plants.FOREST VALLEYEvery creator is an island and a growing tree. The Fashion Door is like an artificial forest that allows creative souls to grow freely and connects all islands.This 500sqm store is divided into “island” and “bark house” installations, each covering an area of dozens of square meters.

The 1-2 sqm island shelves and hangers could also be the display window of an independent designer. Connected together, they form the whole picture of the store. The space installations are built into the forms of grass, trees, islands, mountains and stones with varying distances between each other. The moving lines flow across the space like streams.

The moss, fern, shrubs and deadwood in different seasons present a picture of artificial nature.AUTUMN-WINTERBARK HOUSE – STORES IN STOREThe treehouses are dedicated to designers with a large amount of work.

The treehouses are inspired by the shanties built with bark in the coastal areas in south China. Lacking industrial construction materials in the past, locals combined the sequoia bark and the felt to build shanties near the sea. These buildings are not only an extension of the natural ecosystem but a symbol of free growth.

Under the theme of the ecosystem, they represent a wise lifestyle.Therefore, the processed reed was put into the metal frames. The solar panels further create a virtual-real effect. With round corners, the treehouses create several independent spaces while rising as the space outside the valley.DETAILS & MATERIALSPlants, hyperbolic aluminum plates, reed and metal structures all embody the core concept of artificial nature.

Delicate metal surface structures make it possible to build tree houses, which could be placed outdoors. There are natural elements like original wood in the local areas of metal display stands and hangers, striking a balance between artificial nature and natural nature.Project Information:Project Name: Shenzhen OneAvenue Flagship Store of TFDDesign Firm: PMT Partners Ltd.Website: www.pmt-partners.comE-mail: pmtpartners@163.comPrincipal Architects: ZHAO Weihao, HU Yan , ZENG Zhe , Project Director: LIN Yongjun , LIN Mianshi Design Team: LIN Yongjun , LIN Mianshi , GU Zhenlin, GUAN Haozheng, ZHANG GePhotographs: ZENG Zhe, LIN YongjunGreenery Design: Yen WongClient: TFD GROUP.
