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.
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.
