LIN Architecture has created a prototype structure in China to consider how the use of space can impact human behaviour.
The project is a spatial experiment on using small-scaled temporary buildings to animate their environs.
It considers the interplay between ergonomics, human behaviour and proxemics to explore the amount of space that people feel it necessary to set between themselves and others.
A combination of steel and wood was used to create the structure – steel for its ability to be hot-bent for the main frame, and wood for its innate texture and characteristics to create resonance with the surrounding environment, producing a new imprint from a pre-existing form.
