LAUGH ALIVE PAVILION

Bangrak, Bangkok
Thailand
2020

“Laugh Alive Pavilion” is an information center, meeting point, and a starting point for Bangkok Design Week 2020 under the theme “Resilience: New Potential for Living”. This pavilion reflects Thai people’s ability to adapt and resiles in the face of obstacles. A silver lining can be found in any cloud through “humor and positive energy”. Positivity is the essence that gets us through challenging crises. These innate qualities enable humans to endure and survive in our environment.

The design focuses on delivering and receiving information through various activities and aims to connect information with laughter and joy. A creative collaboration between the designer and various fields to generates joy, and to erecting and dismantling the pavilion without leaving any unjoyful waste behind.

“Generating happiness” Laughter is universal, communicable and detectable, and is the main medium of information exchange through interactive media. The balloons symbolize the liveliness and lift up the shading canopy. The height of the pavilion acts as a gauge of visitor’s happiness levels. As happiness is generated within the pavilion, balloons are added, and the canopy floats higher. Therefore, the shape of the pavilion is ever-changing due to the number of balloons. The colorful canopy is composed of circular bags fabricated from offcut garment. Pavilion’s furniture is made from a rental rubber swim ring that is usually enjoyed at the beach.

“Spreading happiness” The canopy is designed to be durable yet easily disassembled. Balloons are given out to visitors at the end of each day, and on the final day the canopy is dismantled on-site and cloth bags distributed to the visitors. The rubber swim ring furnitures was also returned to be enjoyed at the beach. 

After the 9-days event, all that remains of the LAUGH ALIVE PAVILION are countless joy and laughter.
