Shrine of Whatslove was designed by Wutopia Lab and developed and fabricated by RoboticPlus.AI in shanghai. This China's first all-carbon-fiber structure, woven by carbon-fiber, was eventually installed in the rural area of Zhejiang, Wutopia Lab attempted to arouse discussion on what’s love in modern life and how to intervene in the rural construction. RoboticPlus is dedicated to pushing the boundary of architectural technology.
The 4 meters high and 3.8 meters wide entire structure of the shrine was weaved with a continuous line of carbon-fiber, density is controlled at 18KG per cubic meter and the bearing capacity of 400kg is achieved. After a month of testing, using 7200 meters of continuous carbon fiber bundles, the red Shrine of Whatslove was completed in 90 hours. Shrine of Whatslove is not the same as the carbon-fiber pavilion you used to see. It has floor slabs that can carry at least 4 people and can be overhung so that the shrine seems floating in the air.
