Y是对时间和空间的表达,也是对木材的创造性使用装置Niemelä Tenant Farm芬兰当地传统建筑示例,它由13栋建筑组成,并于1909年从芬兰中心移至博物馆岛。Y装置作为一件临时展品,形成了全新的公共空间,人与动物都可以栖息于此。该装置的摆放,放慢了人在该博物馆岛的脚步,如同时光穿梭般,吸引人停留观望,展开无限遐想。

Y is an equation of temporality, time and provocative use of wood in the museum milieu. Niemelä Tenant Farm is an example of traditional Finnish vernacular architecture consisting of 13 buildings, brought to the museum island in 1909 from central Finland. The temporary piece forms a new social courtyard at the tenant farm entrance, as an addition to the existing courtyards for animals and humans. The installation seeks to encourage the visitors stay longer in the Niemelä by altering the familiar and permanent museum environment. Y provides a hypnotic meditation spot from where to reflect on the changing state of time.

Tradition is born out of continuation and the sharing of knowledge and skills – the conjunction of new and old. As Y is the mathematical symbol for the unknown, the installation Y points to the future and the possible outcomes of Nordic built heritage. In Niemelä, Y is a variable within the parameter of time.

Y combines digital fabrication with handcraft, inspiring and revealing the possibilities of wood in modern construction. It encourages cross-border collaboration between architects and carpenters, as well as the combination of traditional working methods of fine carpenters with digital design and production. Y is built with horizontal prefabricated CLT-elements interlocked by 568 timber wedges and is itself like a large wooden joint made of CLT.
