YULE LADS
ICELAND GREEN HOUSE RESTAURANT

In what way folklores can be associated with the formation of greenhouse farming? How the value of a greenhouse can be magnified to become an Icelandic statement? The notion of this project is plotted in between symbolic cultural belief and farming techniques pedagogy into a tangible architecture that is contextually intimate. To promote the appreciation of fresh locally grown food other than its engineered farming technicality, the standard description of the greenhouse is screen played by the benevolent characteristics of the thirteen fictional Icelandic troll creatures, Yule Lads. It is a playful and mystical architecture where its functions follow the realm of Icelanders make-believe narratives.
