The activation of rural field public space has always been an important part of rural construction projects. The participation of the designers and students in the rural space experimental Bamboo Pavilion project provides another possibility for the issue of rural construction space, focusing on joint participation, ecological construction, sustainable operation, teaching within research, etc.

Chongming, a beautiful island with excellent natural environmental and ecological resources, has unique advantages providing conditions for the development of local tourism and agriculture. Each weekend, tourists from Shanghai and its surrounding cities drive to Chongming, with special holidays making the trips more popular and abundant.

In rural fields, in addition to the beautiful farmland, people’s activities have become a different kind of rural landscape. How space can activate behaviors and become a social generator is the main focus of this space experiment.

In general, there are two characteristics of people’s behaviors in rural field: one is the extensibility of horizontal plane, and the other is no obvious aggregation in space. This design makes a breakthrough among the two points, with the program transitioning from horizontal to be vertically organized, with a highlighted spatial enclosure.

Furthermore, the designers introduced the field theory. Interactions between family members or strangers are realized by the space enticing people to break boundaries.

People spend their time resting, talking, and transiting around this installation. They finally build up a sense of intimacy and connection by traveling from one field to another,experiencing it from a comfortable social distance to a tense social distance.
