Project Description

Albinism is a congenital disease in which a person is distinguished at birth by a lack of melanin. Although society tells people not to discriminate against this group, their terrible appearance makes them pitiful. Many people with albinism spend the rest of their lives in a vicious circle of pain and suffering. They are happy in the sunshine outside, but they can only spend the rest of their lives in the dark. As the most free positive energy in the world, sunlight often brings hope to many people. On the contrary, this free positive energy becomes the greatest enemy of disease. So how to let them get along with the sun and improve the vicious circle is the key. They are afraid of the sun. They should avoid the strong light. The significance of architectural existence is to regulate the relationship between people and the environment, so we want to shape the internal space of the building to make the light equal, warm and not dangerous, so as to realize the scene of whitening patients quietly basking in the sun. The core of light anatomy is mobile furniture system. In this small apartment space, Plant fiber net is added on the window to divide the light and make it suitable for gradual change when entering the room. In addition, set the track, let the furniture move on the track, and with the sun moving, the furniture can also change the direction and angle in a small range. For example, the chairs in orbit in space are all the sitting positions of patients with albinism, such as eating, learning, reading, resting quietly, basking in the sun, wearing shoes and a series of activities. Simple furniture is the power of simplicity.
