F3 (Friends Futures Factory)
Opening night with welcome speeches, food & beverage vendors and live acoustic music by Unity Band.
Under The Canopy is an exciting new project by Creative Generation that highlights sustainable design. A young architect, NUON Songty, under the mentorship of David COLE, has been commissioned to design and build an architectural installation in the courtyard of F3 (Friends Futures Factory). He was asked to design the canopy using sustainable and natural materials. To fulfill this requirement Songty was inspired by Cambodia’s rich and ancient basketry. He chose the humble bamboo chicken coop and will put together almost 500 baskets to form a new and contemporary shape. The canopy will provide a temporary space in the courtyard inviting the public to enjoy events and community gatherings under its dappled shade and innovative design.
