NEON：2015年，Shiver House第一次在芬兰科尔波的Barfotastigen展览展出，该装置原本计划在当地展出4个月，但由于太受欢迎，被留在了现场很长一段时间。第二年，它所在的岛屿——科尔波岛，开始在项目旁边举办一个夏季音乐会，又再次邀请了它作为该著名爵士音乐节“Korppoo Sea Jazz”的一部分继续展出。而这一次，我们创建的由芬兰飞机板层建造的新版Shiver House，则是为了庆祝该项目的五周年纪念日。
NEON：Shiver House was previously installed in 2015 as part of the Barfotastigen exhibition in Korppoo, Finland. The project was intended to be in-situ for 4 months but due to its popularity it was kept on-site on a longer-term basis. On the project’s second year, Korppoo – the island on which it sits, began hosting summer concerts next to the project as part of the renowned Jazz festival “Korppoo Sea Jazz”. A new edition has been created to celebrate the project’s 5-year anniversary constructed out of Finnish Airplane Ply.
Shiver House is a radical reinvention of the common Finnish Hut (mökki). The project is a kinetic “animal-like” structure that moves and adapts in response to surrounding natural forces. Shiver House is an exploration into the idea that architecture can be used as a means to create a closer emotional link between its inhabitants and the natural world it sits within. In addition, the project explores the idea that architecture can be made to seem “alive” with the intention that this will engender a deeper and longer-lasting emotional relationship between people and the structures we inhabit.
“当世界正在适应新冠肺炎的新现实时，我认为有必要更加强调建筑、艺术和设计可以作为一种减轻焦虑的方式，它可以将我们与自然联系起来，让人们重新在公共空间聚集。 Shiver House的建筑处于不断变化的状态，随着空气流动而自动‘表演’，它是一种让人们立足于当下的理想建筑方式。” NEON公司Mark Nixon说道。
“While the world is adjusting to the new reality of Covid-19 I feel that there needs to be a greater emphasis given to the way architecture, art, and design might be used as a means of reducing anxiety, connecting us with nature and bringing people together again in public spaces. Shiver House’s architecture is in a constant state of transformation and ‘performs’ with the ever-changing flows of the wind, it is an ideal means of grounding people in the present moment,”
said Mark Nixon of NEON.
The house employs the use of 600 kinetic counter-weighted shingles which respond to the changing weather conditions of the site. Wind, rain, and snow cause the shingles to rotate into a closed position giving the structure the temporary appearance and function of a shelter. The Shiver House is constantly transforming between being a functional shelter and a poetic and experiential device. Users that sit within the structure can observe the ever-changing environment as they watch the kinetic shingles modulate the internal light levels as well as views out to the surrounding landscape.
The project is constructed using a simple timber structure which supports a number of rows of tensioned steel wire. These steel wires are treated as batons and are designed to hold the counterweighted shingles. The shingles are constructed using a folded and cut Airplane Ply which has been soaked in a protective oil. The counterweight is constructed using a stainless-steel nut and bolt.
Conceptually, the piece suggests that architecture, rather than static and function-led can be a poetic, living, and dynamic element which changes the way we relate to the landscape that surrounds us.

Barfotastigen的策展人桑德拉•尼伯格解释说:“每年，Barfotastigen展览都邀请专业艺术家与当地独特的群岛环境互动，邀请他们对场地和/或与更广阔的群岛地区有关的问题相应的回应。虽然大多数作品都是临时性的，生命周期一般只有4个月到1年，但Shiver House很快以一种非常特别的方式成为了场地的一部分。因此，让我们的参观者、Korpo Sea爵士音乐节的组织者，当然还有我们自己非常高兴的是，我们此次委托了设计师再制作一个新的版本，让它成为展览中更为持久的特色所在。这项装置非常适合人们在任何季节的任何一天中的任何时间去体验。不断变化的环境会强烈又恰当地改变装置内的空间氛围，从活泼轻松到阴郁柔和，应有尽有。”
“Every year, the Barfotastigen exhibition invites professional artists to interact with the unique archipelago environment – asking them to respond to the site and/or issues concerning the wider archipelago area,” Sandra Nyberg the curator of Barfotastigen explained.
“While most works are temporary with a life span of 4 months to a year, Shiver House quickly became part of the site in a very prominent way. Therefore – to the delight of our visitors, the organizers of the Korpo Sea Jazz festival, and of course ourselves – we decided to commission a new version of the work and make it a more permanent feature of the exhibition. The concept of the work suits well to be experienced in all seasons and times of the day. The everchanging conditions strongly and fittingly alter the mood of the work, ranging from lively and light to somber and subdued.”
