GROWING UP - FLORIM
Growing Up is a temporary architectural pavilion devoted to host and to showcase pictures from the most relevant pieces of architecture featured by Florim.
Growing Up is a flexible and a demountable structure assembled from wood frame. The installation looks in construction or in progress. The design represents the goals of Florim, The pavilion is named “Growing Up” because, the structure itself is unique and it seems in progress, strange or unachieved. Growing Up represents the realization of the past, the effort of the present and the incertitude of the future: it is a whole.
People commonly say “Time is money”, but here we try to show that Time is much more; time is important “time is running out”. This abstract element can’t be controlled by human, by us. Time also represents “projects or future” maybe that is why we always running for more time, more second: “hey! Lay it on me”. Time is our most precious resource because time is running out.
The installation is the pieces of wooden frames which can be assembled to the workshop and mounted on the site. Superposition is the logic of assembly of each wooden frame piece as we built a pyramid. The main assembling mode is dowel joints between frame pieces, bolts may only use as an alternative assembling solution. This wooden pavilion uses a combination of CNC machinery and traditional woodworking techniques.
