  • 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.
