Sustainable pavilions at Wonderfruit festival in Thailand

Category:

The wonderfruit festival was launched in Thailand occupying a temporary community of creative pavilions designed by London-based Ab Rogers Design. Wonderfruit festival hosts a programme of art, music and food events that focus on sustainability, which is reflected in the local materials and construction techniques of the structures.

The pavilions all make use of local resources, indigenous craft techniques and are specific to the culture and landscape of Thailand. The largest structure is the Eco-Pavilion, designated for events and performances.

The vast, flexible acoustic doughnut is made of Thai grass and yellow maize, and inside, clusters of hand-painted cotton and bamboo umbrellas with speakers at their center, provide space for the audience to shade from the sun and enjoy the performances.

The Wonderfruit village, master planned by Ab Rogers Studio, follows a plan of radiating circles, that spread like audio waves and respond to the shapes found in the natural landscape. Sculptural look-out towers inspired by traditional Thai bamboo structures rise at useful moments, to guide people through the site, offering an aerial view of the activity or a place to meet.
