由衍序規劃設計打造的「鼓勵好室」，以臺灣農業機制與適應環境的構築發展核心概念，運用台灣常見且已技術成熟的溫室結構搭建臨時性空間，連續兩年在台灣桃園農業博覽會提出「農村創生的實驗」。2019年以臺灣原生草為主角，進行一場對土地關懷的創作與實驗，定名為「鼓勵好室2-草生肥田（Ｇrass Fields）」。衍序團隊在空間上重新定義建築與自然景觀之間的連結，以培養原生草為行動實驗，空間進入溫室構築，基地成為一座兼具生態和景觀的原生草域實驗室。「鼓勵好室 2 - 草生肥田」中訴說原生草植群的空間美感意識、土地復育機制、科技培養技術，同時連結臺灣百年青草哲學，在「草能覆田、亦能養田」的共生關係中，引領大眾通往農業永續發展的理想境地。展期結束後，溫室結構材將回到材料循環系統中，原生草也移植到具有相同土地友善意識的農場裡，落實土地復育概念。
Greenhouse2 - Grass Field
Not so many offices of architecture have the chance to put hands on their work after this is implemented. Even less have the opportunity to do it by re-using a temporary piece of architecture.
Since it deals with architecture as well as the curating of architecture, BIAS architects had the chance to do this in the context of the Taoyuan Green Expo 2019, following the 2018 edition. In 2018, in order to exhibit the idea of sustainable rural life and a new ecological environment, BIAS transformed a greenhouse into a prototype of future housing, called “Greenhouse as a Home.” Here, the human living space was intertwined with that of the plants and organized according to climatic zones, rather than traditional architectural areas. In 2019, the utopia of a sustainable rural future was exhibited, called “Grass Field.” In particular, if the approach of the first edition was continued by addressing agricultural systems and the environmental adaptability of architecture, the focus was moved on the indigenous herbs and their relation with the built space.
The first action was the de-layering of the existing pavilion, previously built by techniques for greenhouse construction. Then, thanks to the flexibility of greenhouse architecture, the pavilion was transformed from an assemblage of parallel spatial units to a two-floor longitudinal space. The relation between building and the ground was also restructured, and a system of artificial mounds introduced in order to help nature taking over the foundation and the building. This way, the building essentially merged into the surrounding landscape. Transparent agricultural gauze and plastic films provided the chance to envelop some key space and create some interiors, although highly ambiguous. Not only but also, they provided the chance to technologically manage and control the distribution of water and energy flows across the main space.
Within the “Grass Field,” people could walk through mounds covered with indigenous herbs of all altitudes in Taiwan. Species of herbaceous vegetation were also displayed on planting shelves and introduced land restoration mechanisms. Then, a ‘plant tissue culture lab’ showcased how biotechnology can regenerate endangered species and create superior profit crops. Finally, it was possible to visit a large drying hall where the traditional wisdom of ‘herbology,’ accumulated over generations, was celebrated.
This way, people could experience various connections between architecture, indigenous herbs, land restoration mechanisms, landscape, and human life. Indeed, at BIAS, we trust in the indigenous herbs, and we know they can make our world sustainable again. Not only but also, after the exhibition, if the main structure of the pavilion has remained on-site as a flexible space for temporary activities, the secondary construction elements and materials have returned to the market. The indigenous herbs of the exhibition were also transplanted back to farms. By the re-use of the pavilion itself, and the further re-use of materials and the content of the new exhibition, the project has finally become innovative publicity of the building industry as part of natural processes. This way, by a two-year engagement with new approaches to culture and construction, land restoration concepts, and new ecological awareness, BIAS hopes to spread the concept of new sustainability for our land and society together.
