Cabanetek is a temporary space enclosed by three sheet-like structures, and its shape is similar to Chinese letter “tong". One hundred bamboos with a diameter of 50 mm form an upward space, providing a small livable space for the wide site with two curved surfaces. Although the structure is small, this space can accommodate standing people. At one end, we even arranged a room where two people can sit opposite each other. The length of the bamboo changes with the angle of inclination, wrapped in a large space and released in a small space. The small space and the large space form a mutual-looking relationship, which is both independent and intimate.
The construction site of Cabanetek has some distance from the waterfront; it is a broad site so that we don't have to be too entangled in the size of the advance and retreat. The site is an enlarged node of the trail around the lake, and there is the hope of carrying some activities: the vertical mirror set in the landscape enlarges the scale of the site. The ample state has a positive impact on the design. It is hoped that the design intervention can create a primitive hut like structure, simple and livable, complement this unique spatial structure: relaxation, fun, and comfort.
Since Cabanetek will only exist for three months, bamboo, a more affinity material, was chosen to be used. This is not only about being friendly to the environment; it also makes people who enter have a sense of relaxation. We want the pavilion to present a state where people feel free to use: the height of the floor is just the size that makes people comfortable to sit down; there is no too rigid connection, this is a slightly movable pavilion; bamboo, hemp rope and wood texture can provide some flexibility and sound. We think the pavilion can offer a different sense of touch in the building where you usually sit and feel the soft light and relaxing air in spring and summer that inspire more imagination of outdoor activities.
