We proposes an “appropriate durability” as a new sustainable design method: not to set up excessive architectural strength to the pavilion but rather construct with appropriate materials that are durable only for a period of the event. From this perspective, Paper Pavilion is designed by reconsidering paper as architectural material in order to create the appropriate pavilion for 4 days last event, CHART. In this condition, the paper is the most suitable material that is sustainable and strong enough material to accommodate this short-term event.
A “bagworm” is the initial design image of this project which creates its nest by collecting surrounded materials and well represents the characteristic of the place. Likewise, Paper Pavilion wraps itself with papers from the city, showcasing the citizens’ urban activities, thus celebrates “Living City”.
structure of the pavilion is designed movable. This enables the pavilion to be replaced to other cities and rebirth itself with new colors of various places. Moreover, the papers used for the pavilion can be re-cycled with existing recycle system of the city after the fair.
