CCA:该项目(Orchid Pavilion)是为 Casa Wabi 艺术中心而设计的,它位于埃斯孔迪多港郊区,地处山海之间。​这是一个永久性、可持续和轻质的木质结构,专门用于保护瓦哈卡(Oaxaca )地区的兰花,突出了景观的生物多样性和文化多样性之间的紧密联系。

CCA:The Orchid Pavilion, designed for Casa Wabi, is located on the outskirts of Puerto Escondido, between the sea and the mountains. It is a wooden structure, permanent, sustainable, and lightweight, dedicated to the conservation of orchids in the Oaxaca region, which highlights the strong relationship between the biological and cultural diversity of the landscape.

As we approached the design of the Orchid Pavilion at Casa Wabi, our research pointed toward some clear technical features, components, and facts. It became evident that in order to grow, reproduce, and collect orchids, we needed to create the right environment for them to thrive: humid, partially shaded, and well-ventilated.

But more interestingly, the relationship between the Japanese philosophy of Wabi-Sabi, which believes that beauty and harmony are found in simplicity, imperfection, and unconventionality, and the rich and complex traditions of the Oaxacan coast—its vernacular, locally sourced materials, and the high quality of the artisanal works of the local craftsmen—were to be at the center of our proposal. Then, unexpectedly, we thought of the Japanese word Ikigai.

When somebody finds their purpose, their calling, they are more likely to lead a long, healthy life. However, it’s easy to get lost in the stress and noise of our daily routine, so we need to make space, we need to chill out, in this case, with the orchids.

When you enter the pavilion, you breathe in the humidity, hear the gentle drops falling, feel the crossing winds, and hopefully, you will be able to remember who you are, what your reason for being is. What is your Ikigai.

展亭的设计注重三大要素 Our pavilion focuses on three main elements:




Firstly, the pavilion is a simple and austere machine. Twelve concrete-based humidifiers utilize gravity to create a humid environment within the structure that houses orchids from the Oaxacan coast.

Secondly, the pavilion employs simple construction materials and techniques, including locally sourced wood and custom-made concrete ceramic pieces baked in high-temperature kilns.

And thirdly, the pavilion serves as a sanctuary for the orchids while also aiming to evoke a profound sense of Ikigai in its visitors.

The main element that allows orchids to thrive is a humid environment. The intricate roots, branches, and leaflets gather water from the air, soil, and all surfaces. A series of pyramid-shaped, water-filled concrete basins rests at the top of a simple wooden structure. The basins slowly filter tiny droplets of water that fall to the ground, allowing for drip irrigation. The water is collected by concrete-based trays that remain permanently humid. The breeze and heat enable the orchids to drink water directly from the environment, eliminating the need for manual watering of the specimens.

“生命的本质是湿润,湿润的本质是美丽。”Life is the essence of wetness, and wetness is the essence of beauty” – Derek Zoolander



To the guests of Casa Wabi, the orchid pavilion offers a refuge to sit and drink water after a long walk. Remembering that the first steps of humanity occurred in the shade of a tree, the pavilion also communicates a contemplative journey, as the water people drink is the same water orchids drink.

The sound of dripping in the bowls resonates with different natural cycles and human activity. This cool, semi-submerged space changes the horizon and perspective of visitors as they descend to ground level, allowing them not only to appreciate the diversity of orchid species but also to connect with the humble root of life in a state of harmony.

Fundación Casa Wabi 是一个非营利组织,旨在促进当代艺术与当地社区在三个地点之间的对话:埃斯孔迪多港、墨西哥城和东京。其名称源于日本的“侘寂”哲学,即在简约、不完美和非传统中发现美与和谐。其使命是通过艺术促进社会发展,主要通过五项基本计划来实现:居住、展览、陶艺、电影和移动图书馆。

Fundación Casa Wabi is a non-profit organization that promotes dialogue between contemporary art and local communities across their three locations: Puerto Escondido, Mexico City, and Tokyo. The name derives from the Japanese philosophy of Wabi-Sabi, which believes in finding beauty and harmony in simplicity, imperfection, and unconventionality. Its mission focuses on building social development through art, which is carried out through five fundamental programs: residencies, exhibitions, pottery, film, and a mobile library.

近年来,基金会为葡萄牙建筑师Álvaro Siza(1992 年普利兹克奖获得者)设计的陶瓷馆(Ceramic Pavilion)、墨西哥工作室 Ambrosi Etchegaray 设计的 Guayacán 馆、日本建筑师隈研吾设计的鸡舍(Henhouse)、巴拉圭建筑师 Solano Benítez 和 Gloria Cabral 设计的堆肥馆(Compost Pavilion)以及最近墨西哥建筑师 Alberto Kalach 设计的高温烤箱和花园(high-temperature Oven and gardens)举行了落成典礼。这些展馆的设计旨在提供功能性空间,支持基金会项目的发展。

In recent years, the foundation has inaugurated a Ceramic Pavilion designed by the Portuguese Architect Álvaro Siza (Pritzker, 1992), a Guayacán Pavilion by the Mexican studio Ambrosi Etchegaray, a Henhouse by the Japanese architect Kengo Kuma, a Compost Pavilion by Paraguayan architects Solano Benítez and Gloria Cabral, and more recently, a high-temperature Oven and gardens by the Mexican architect Alberto Kalach. These pavilions are designed to provide functional spaces that support the development of the foundation ‘s programs.
