该项目的场地位于台湾台东的一座弃置了十多年的旧火车站。该火车站原本在当地发挥着重要作用,在废弃之后留下了一片空阔的区域。作为政府振新城区计划的一部分,该项目旨在将车站改造为一个灵活的、可供所有人使用的文化空间。

The site of intervention is an old train station deactivated for more than a decade in the city of Taitung, Taiwan. The station played an important role in the growth of the region, leaving an empty space when it was abandoned. As part of the local government’s effort to reactivate this area of the city, the idea is to transform the station into a cultural space, flexible and for all.

设计师希望通过这种空置的空间来创造新的试用机会,为市民们提供一个没有具体功能指向性的、完全自由的场所。一个“无目的”的空间恰恰才是任何事情都有可能发生的空间,它激发着思考和新的开始,是一个不带任何标签的、同时属于个人和集体的空间。

In the studio we believe that this type of voids present the opportunity to generate new uses and, given the sense of appropriation of the citizens, we think that it made sense to design a free space without function available for different ways of being. A space for nothing is actually a place where everything can happen, that promotes reflection and a new beginning, a space of freedom, uncoded, individual and collective.

基于简洁的设计意图,装置最终呈现为一个巨大的半透明白色立方体,尺寸为8 x 8 x 8m。底部的一角向天空翘起,标志着向内部“入侵”的瞬间。轻盈的体态消解了巨大体量带来的沉重感,如同轻轻掀开轻柔的幕布,将人们吸引到它内部的世界。

The form is the result of an intention of simplicity translated into a huge translucent white cube of 8 x 8 x 8m, where a lower corner rises in the air and marks the moment of incursion to the interior. Through a light gesture we tried to dismantle the weight and scale of the form, as if we wanted to see underneath the cloth.

室内空间由四面墙围合,促使人们将目光转向天空。这是一个未完成的场所,是公园和花园的一部分延伸。人们可以在这里进行冥想,体验展览和音乐会,在阳光或雾气的围绕下自由嬉戏——它杜绝了私自占有的可能,这样的空间属于每一个人。

The interior is a room in the exterior, four walls that stand and make us turn our eyes to the sky. It is an unfinished place, an extension of the park and the garden. A place where you can be alone or in a group, a room for an exhibition, a music concert, meditation or even playing around surrounded by fog or light, a space for everyone. A challenge to spontaneity and appropriation of the public space.
