My concept comes from a very old writing in China which means that we built the wall but not using it. We define the spaces boundary with all those different architecture languages in order to define the space itself. On the other hands by overviewing the development of architecture itself. From the great massing from the ancient age like pyramid or the great wall to nowadays generic city like all those skyscrapers all over the world. With nowadays new tech like AR or VR we can experience the traditional space in a totally different perspective. What I have done is find the connection or potential between traditional elements and the hyperlink method.
As we know, in high-density urban areas, people have to give up transparency because of privacy considerations and live in concrete boxes, which undoubtedly separates the relationship between man and nature. But Rosen house can provide us with an excellent example of balancing privacy and transparency. Therefore, through my thesis project, I hope to explore how to use Rosen house space model to find the method of giving consideration to transparency and privacy in residential projects in high-density urban areas.
Glass as an architectural material always contains a property that fulfills the space visibly but intangibly with light, granting the space meaning and making space into place without substantiating it. For Philip Johnson Glass House, Johnson uses the materiality of glass to combine the exterior and the interior, which provides a sense for residents living in the surrounding environment.
This thesis starts by analyzing different lighting tricks that the glass can do; it aims to twist the light in a space and provide joy for the whole place. They turn the glass box into an art gallery with reflection from below to space and casting shadows from above. Instead of creating another glass box, using glass sliding doors to replace the traditional wall to gives residents flexibility to completely open the space.
The concept the project is to create flexible and minimalist space that can accommodate various activities by dividing the combined forces of the internal functional partitions of the building, while enhancing the flow of the internal space to produce the effect of maximum and infinite expansion. By using the least number of architectural elements to create the most possible spatial configurations and the maximum amount of experiential variety and spatial experience and therefore creating variety of potential use.
The Pyramid Fields is an exercise aimed at producing a design alternative for additions done to masterpiece of architecture in order to preserve the architects original vision, and elaborate on the narrative of the original building.
Based on the study of the structural form and space layout of Tamalpais Pavilion, the Pavilion space based on structure and the In-between space that break the integrity are summarized according to the architectural characteristics. Try to use these two types of spaces as basic units, proliferate in different dimensions, and develop into buildings of different scales and different functions while maintaining the purity of the precedent. This resulted in a vertical version in the city and a horizontal version in the natural landscape.
Architecture is commonly designed with the aim of providing a fixed, ideal solution based upon the assumption of future situations being certain, invariable and at a particular moment in time. However, What happens if a building moves? Dynamic spatial constructions that can accommodate changing dynamics and become part of the change, providing different spatial changes and emotional experiences.
Movement is used as a tool that empowers and allows varying spatial characteristics to occur than a static version may permit. A morphing architecture provides users’ with new spatial experiences as well as improving and inspiring everyday lives. These dynamic and variable elements in the architecture transforms the perception and understanding of the architectural buildings from passive one into an active evolutive compositions.
In the terms of the perception, this creative realization of the architectural concepts enables users to experience architectural space in a more vibrant and more participatory fashion, transforming the classical and traditional perception of urban and architectural spaces
Along with the technological improvements in our age, it is now possible for the movement to become one of the basic components of the architectural space. Accordingly, architectural construction of movement changes both our architectural production practices and our understanding of architectural space.
I believe circulation and movement through building should not be a means to an end, but a dynamic experience holding and conveying meaning to be remembered. Also, I believe that buildings are not static; they live, breathe, wear just as humans do. For this reason, I will design architecture that responds to human phenomena, as well as its context and site conditions.
Therefore my thesis statement is utilize kinetic design strategies to improve the spatial and emotional experience, and facilitate the programmatic evolution of a space.
The materialization of the cyber world. Using online life as a principle, I’ve evolved Phillip Johnson’s Glass House into the 2020 version.Build a new way of life that gives people freedom to show.
As family patterns, cities and society change, the house constantly changes its appearance. More and more people who move from small towns to big cities live alone in confined spaces, so I developed the idea of shared homes.
The basic idea of the project is to minimize the private space occupied by individuals, to create a wide and rich public space, and to make the whole into a city or a shared living space like a home.
During the modern period, Architecture has always been seen as a combination of programs and circulations between them. For most of the modern movement, the main event was about exploring the programs, and the circulation was merely a way to make the program elements accessible. People are under serving circulation by minimizing it and almost giving it a neglected status. Since in some extent, programs is stands for more efficiency and served space, and circulations means servant for it. More generally, the rising attention on efficiency leads to a fast-pace lifestyle and a decreasing interaction with people.What if I treat circulations as the main part, and weaken the impact of programs?
My thesis is about exploring how circulation could be expanded to take advantage of positive attributes of programs, and how it overlapped with programs and other types of spaces, reversing the proportions and status of programs and circulations, guiding people to focus both efficiency and leisure time.
