Cultural

The design of this kiosk for a park uses a standard building component–casework– as a building material in its own right that incorporates structure, enclosure, function and aesthetics into a single system. Composed of nine prefabricated cases delicately balanced to support a tipped roof, the structure takes on the logic of monolithic building blocks whose solidity is constantly subverted through precise detailing.

The cases are constructed using waste wood cut-offs from local woodworking shops combined with a plaster binding agent to create a composite construction material and the edges of plywood panels are exposed as an expression of its assembly. All coming together to playfully investigate how we perceive and ascribe meaning to materials and question contemporary construction logic.
