Graphite, Sketchup


When baroque painting meets architecture... In this project, the baroque painting "Boys Eating Grapes and Melons" by Murillo, shown on the left was studied and analyzed with architecture principles such as repetition, rhythm, and datum. Based on these analysis, the painting was then further transformed into a standing pavilion Elements like the flights of stairs and are integrated into the design to represent motion of the two boys in the painting. Airiness was also a goal of the design to echo with the spaciousness among objects within the painting in terms of 3-dimentional composition.

02 Pavilion Design a study of spatial sequence Studio II

Graphite, Autocad, Sketchup

An exit should be equally epic as the entry... This pavilion design project focuses on laying out spatial sequence. With a set kit of parts, the pavilion has a simple plan, yet the playful section aims at transitioning visitors between the mundane real world to the profane, ceremonial terminus located at the highest point. Overhangs, cutouts on the roof, and the columns manipulate light throughout the day to intensify ceremonial atmosphere within the realm.
