Pavilions continued…

Temp'L by Shinslab Architecture is an installation recycled from a rusty old cargo ship for a museum courtyard in Seoul

Temp’L was designed from the recycled steel parts of an old ship. Its aim is to demonstrate how objects that have lost their function may still have value, and promote the beauty in utilitarian mass-produced objects. It shows not only a beauty of structure, but it has also a recycling purpose” said the team, which is led by architect Shin Hyung-Chul. It sits as an unusually shaped pavilion in the entrance courtyard of Korea’s National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art. Behind its rough and rusty exterior, the arching structure provides a public resting space filled with trees and plants. Externally surfaces are left raw, but all internal elements have been painted white. These include both the steel lattice that supports the body of the boat, and the newly added spiral staircase and balcony. Round and semicircular openings create windows and doorways that match the existing portholes, while curved planters accommodate the added vegetation. (A.Frearson, 2016).

I love how this part of an old ship now has a new use. The public can enjoy a large space undercover that has been painted to give a clean, fresh feel. Apart from a lick of paint, a spiral staircase, a balcony and vegetation, this old ship stands upside down in its original glory, up-cycling at its best!
