This innovative and revolutionary design is meant to be the perfect place for rest and finding a peace and mindfulness… a place one can easily meditate, briefly. It is also meant to complement existing spaces and it’s constructed from strands of 100% recyclable high-density polyethylene (HDPE).
The mesmerising design of this structure is done by UNStudio, the Dutch architecture practice led by Ban Van Barkel and it is a part of the revolution precrafted pavilion series. All introverts in the world should celebrate this series of structures with a wide variety of functions which all have in common that are primarily meant to be places for solitude, rest, reading and all things we enjoy doing alone, in peace and without disturbing.
Spiral structure and rounded openings make this structures blend with the surrounding, subtly erasing the line between interior and the exterior, as you can see in the example in the photos in the gallery. Also, learn what Ben van Berkel, founder and principal architect of UNStudio, said about this woven pavilions made for moments of enjoyment in solitude.
“I have long been interested in exploring spaces which extend the function to replace the reality of the everyday with the potential for more nuanced, reflective experiences.”
“The ellipsicoon offers a place of temporary disengagement, where the practicalities, duties and interruptions of daily life can momentarily fade and the imagination can take over.”
