SHANGHAI EXPO 2010 ABILIA Edutainment Park Fire Station




The typical depiction of a fire station is a building constructed of BRICK - a repeated, versatile unit. This structural concept was the stimulus for the basic notion of a pavilion built of a single unit that is duplicated and stacked. This idea was further shaped by the theme of FUTURE. To create a structure more relevant to the ASIAN future, we examined traditional architecture and design, taking cues from Asian castles, temples, and nature motifs. Integrating all these concepts, we developed an organic and playful unit at a child’s scale that can be stacked to create both a dynamic façade and an exciting architectural space.
