Inspired in a trip to Mongolia and China, Paris-based studio Encore Heureux designed a breezy temporary yurt for Bordeaux’s botanical gardens. Dubbed Chinoiserie, the structure is made from simple, locally sourced materials and it's a cross between a yurt, a carousel and a bandstand.
Constructed as part of a workshop organized by Rainbow Dream, Chinoiserie is a translucent space for relaxing and meeting people. The space measures 180 square feet and it’s built from locally sourced wood and fishing net.  The interior is strung with a series of hammocks that are perfect for lazing the day away.
The structure is composed of a concentric repetition of twelve frames that form a beautiful wooden  central tower. The translucent netting provides some privacy while still allowing air to flow freely in and out. Chinoiserie is simple yet effective temporary building that invites passersby to play and relax.
