Bond | “Bench” Contest Winner, 2012-2013
Concept The design intention aims to resurface the spirit of togetherness, which was within the former National Stadium. To emphasize unity, every horizontal segment is interdependent on one another, even visually. The horizontal segments offset from another one, creating a perimeter, which tactfully fits to another bench. This is the bond, where the idea of connection is achieved. In addition, it prompts the user to join the benches together, which creates opportunity of communication. Here, the similar idea of bonding is cultivated. The construction uses wooden planks after planning. At the far edges on the sides, finger joints will be used. Lap joints will be adapted at intermediate connections in between the horizontal segments. There are slight gaps in between the planks to drain of rainwater. In summary, “Bond”, as its name suggests, creates the bridge to the past memories and the spirit of togetherness within the former National Stadium. Measurement 1800mm (L) x 390mm (D) x 450mm (H)
