The World Architecture Festival announced the award-winning list of WAF 2020. “Wemarket fashion commons”, a project designed by waa, located on the L2 floor of yidigang, Chaoyang District, Beijing, stands out from many entries and is finally recommended by the WAF awards 2020 jury.
What kind of feeling will the Commons of fashion retail bring? How do designers embody their identity in the crowd? WAA thinks that the shared space needs to adapt to the different activities of future designers. The essence of business model is to transform the fixed place into a mobile, deconstructive and regenerated space system. Architectural solutions are adopted to minimize the construction of decoration. The combination and composition of space are all solved through a kind of construction – movable door frame.
Using the technology of driving architecture to develop components, three kinds of mobile display shelves are designed, which are linear, rotary and flat shelf. The design uses the panel as the element of separation to create three kinds of space volume: 5 square meters (capsule space) / 10 square meters (leisure space) / 20 square meters (full size space). Each designer can display and sell the design in the area of 2.7m x 1.8m. They will have at least 3 movable panels, 4 bases and 1 led logo. Each designer can create his own unique field, and the collection of these unique fields gives the space a shared atmosphere. The use of panel elements also enables people to have multiple choices when they need to expand the open space, so as to provide flexible space for artists’ installation, fashion show, exhibition and other activities.
