Sustainable Design China Summit 2024 Features



 The MicroNature Pavilion installation by Atelier Ping Jiang I EID Arch creates a futuristic, canyon-like void within a 10x10x10’ geometric cube. Conceived as an abstract MicroNature in urban setting, this pure cubic outer shell with an organic, curvilinear inner void, represents the juxtaposition of artificial and natural elements, the mixture of rationality and sensibility. It articulates the contrast between nature and artificiality. MicroNature offers visitors an immersive experience to discover the inner void that reveals a sense of wonder and mystery.

An open apparatus for visitors to explore its multiple spatial definitions in their own ways, MicroNature is parametrically designed and digitally fabricated with PLA, providing an urban furniture for visitors. The internal space of MicroNature is designed to provide diverse experience for visitors with intimate humanistic scales. 

The urban environment in China is mostly composed of high density fabrics that reveal various linear geometries. Conversely, nature is filled with complex and organic forms. These different sceneries create a strong contrast between linear geometry and organic form. Traditional Chinese architecture combined the geometric linearity from the architectural system and the organic vocabulary from the landscape system. Through integrating the pure cube form with the inner curvilinear void, MicroNature reinterprets the artistic conception of traditional Chinese architecture by representing the duality of nature and artificiality.

Meanwhile, the wormhole-like inner void of MicroNature echoes the form of rockery in traditional Chinese gardens with contemporary design language and digital fabrication technology. While integrating natural, technological and futuristic elements, the installation of MicroNature becomes a "micro park" in the urban environment that reflects on the city’s past, present and future.
