Situated near a river and designed as a gathering place for people to meet and contemplate life, Wood Pavilion #1 has been named The Social Space of 2022.
September 6th, 2022
Meeting, mixing and experiencing are the key ingredients for sociability and, with a fabulous shortlist in The Social Space in this year’s INDE.Awards, all these aspects of interaction were ticked off.
Wood Pavilion #1 designed by Chinese firm LIN Architecture received the top honour in INDE.Awards The Social Space category this year, and the practice has created great design coupled with in-depth thinking.
It’s all in the detail, as supporter of The Social Space, Verosol, knows and understands. As a company, Verosol has been designing and manufacturing products that encapsulate this idea for decades, creating to enhance the places in which we can live and be social.
As an experimental structure, Wood Pavilion #1 examines ideas of space beyond the functional elements of architecture. LIN Architecture has taken into account three ideas, focusing on ergonomics, proxemics and behaviorology that have been incorporated in the design. These together with the element of light that is constantly changing have informed the design of the building and how people interact with it.
A resolved design is one that ensures the project is the best it can be and for LIN Architecture its exploration of architecture through Wood Pavilion #1 is exemplary. Read further on this project, here.

And Motoko Ishii famously equated it to life itself. Indispensable, life-affirming and metamorphic, light underpins all architectural and design efforts.
