Room Room

by G Studio and Encore Heureux   

Room Room was designed as part of the National Art Museum of China exhibit, Crossing: Dialogues for Emergency Architecture, in 2009. G Studio and Encore Heureux we invited to reflect on the architecture of an emergency in remembrance of the devastating Sichuan earthquake of 2008.

The designers dwelled upon what people need most in critical moments of existence – when one is homeless and cut-off from from society. They sought to create a companion to accompany the men and women who aid and rebuild after a natural or man-made disaster. The team settled on a design based on the self-built vernacular of nomadic cultures. The final structure is flexible, reversible, lightweight, mobile, inexpensive, yet generous, soothing and protective.
