The connection between the city and the country,
Practice of “One Thing, Multiple Uses” environmental protection concept.
In nowaday’s fast-developing world of commercial development, various temporary exhibition halls have been produced. However, these exhibition halls became construction waste after the exhibition, and it was difficult to clean up properly. The materials could not be recycled and reused, causing a lot of unnecessary waste, pollution and emission problems.

Project Location Map
在2019年上海国际家具展中，诺亿设计研发（Rooi Design and Research）专门为家具展商打造了室外独立展厅。建筑师舍弃了酷炫的造型去夺人眼球，反而更真诚率性的使用材料，大胆裸露出木材的粗糙肌理，以表达材料的真实性，和空间纯粹的功能性。并且在项目结束后实现了对于废弃展厅可持续发展的再利用解决方案。
In the 2019 Shanghai International Furniture Fair, Rooi Design and Research created an outdoor independent exhibition hall specifically for furniture exhibitors. The architect abandoned the cool shape to attract people’s attention. Instead, they used materials more sincerely and boldly exposed the rough texture of the wood to express the authenticity of the materials and the pure functionality of the space. And after the end of the project, a sustainable reuse solution for the abandoned exhibition hall was realized.
The main structure of the building adopts a wood-steel structure hybrid system, and the roof adopts a hyperboloid design (positive and negative arch beam steel structure). The whole building space is open and clean, without a column. The architect believes that leaving the complexity to the process of design and construction will bring a fresh and comfortable visual effect to the public, while bringing zero load to the city. During the exhibition, this project brings a vibrant center point to the empty external venue. It is not only a furniture exhibition hall, but also a place for visitors to enjoy the cool, relax and watch.

Combination of Furniture and Exhibition Hall
The furniture in the exhibition hall echoes the plywood
The facade of the building uses two different forms of cubes, and the four facades have become windows for displaying furniture. Visitors can clearly watch the furniture display from different directions, different floors and other angles. In addition, the transparent façade can capture enough sunlight, while the 1.22m deep window prevents direct sunlight, bringing a comfortable visual effect to the visitors.

Rebirth and Record of the Construction
Special exhibition at the Venice Biennale
2020年的夏天，建筑师回收了整个展览建筑体，并以最经济的方式为附近乡村社区打造了410套桌椅。考虑到乡村社区通常有着紧密的人际关系，建筑师基于板材尺寸以及使用者需求设计出了这些六边形的家具。每块1.22m x 1.22m的回收胶合板可以刚好的被加工成一张六边形的桌子或3张凳子而且安装简易，最后由村委会发放给了有需要的人以及社区服务中心。在使用中人们很自然的将桌椅以不同形式组合在一起，很好的增加了互动性和趣味性，并且帮助丰富了社区活动。
In the summer of 2020, the architect recovered the entire exhibition building and created 410 sets of tables and chairs for the nearby rural communities in the most economical way. Considering that rural communities usually have close interpersonal relationships, the architect designed these hexagonal furniture based on the size of the panels and the needs of users. Each piece of 1.22m x 1.22m recycled plywood can be processed into a hexagonal table or 3 stools and is easy to install. Finally, the village committee distributes them to the needy and community service centers. In use, people naturally combine tables and chairs in different forms, which greatly increases the interaction and interest, and helps enrich community activities.
Included in the literature of the European Cultural Center
Affected by the concept of sustainable development, variability becomes a factor to be considered at the beginning of the construction process, and it is applicable before and after construction. The design, construction and use of buildings are all activities that involve humans’ continuous participation in time, during which the conditions of human existence change in their material and spiritual environment. Design is not accomplished overnight. It is a process, not a superposition of quantities, but a creative and variable production practice.
The process of construction is the continuous practice and development of human experience. This development is unfinished and can be reproduced. However, this change in the time dimension needs to be recorded and explained through the media, and images are undoubtedly the best choice.

As a medium and tool, architectural images continues the life of architecture and also enhances the multiple values of architecture at a broader level. The expression of a good building is not only the design plan, but also the continuity and recyclability after construction. The reuse of the materials considered by the architect can be visually displayed in front of the public through the recording of the photographic medium, making the whole design more complete and meaningful for sustainable development. The process of construction is the spark of collision between design and reality, an archive of ideas and skills, and an image story brought to the public by photographers after discovering and recreating.
