JAN. 2011 A Room for London
JAIA has submitted an entry for the architectural competition “A Room for London”, which seeks a unique temporary one room hotel on the roof of Queen Elizabeth Hall at the Southbank Centre in London. The winner will be commissioned by Living Architecture and Art Angel, two of Britain’s leading cultural organization.
JAIA’s proposal “Milk pack house” shows the essence of being “temporary” not only in appearance but also in the operational and structural sense. The folded paper structure wrapping the milk has robust, rigorous watertight structural performance. The paper structure has been reinterpreted into a prefabricated polycarbonate cladding wall system. This lightweight structure can be used as a pavilion and/or as temporary accommodation on an existing roof.
