The site is in Shanghai. I wanted the structure to be permanent and open allowing the interior to be ephemeral. After visiting China for a few weeks. I noticed that China repossesses buildings all the time. I used shipping containers as my enclosed spaces which facilitates a change of program.
12 PRINCIPALS OF ANIMATION
To better understand the architectural qualities of the 12 principles of animation, I recreated them as forms. (from left to right: Squash & Stretch, Anticipation, Staging, Straight Ahead Action and Pose to Pose, Follow Through and Overlapping Action, Slow in & Slow Out, Arcs, Secondary Action, Timing, Exaggeration, Solid Drawing and Appeal) Next I tried to make a composition of the forms. This is very much inspired by the Frank Gehry Design Process.
I designed it to host the Ottawa Animation Festival, have an animation school as well as a proffesional studio. It also functions as a museum.

The assignment was to design a three story bookstore with a private residence. My first floor is completely open allowing circulation under the building. I put the private residence on the second floor and a bookstore for books on film on the third floor. The basement is a Film Studio. The facade has a projection on it. You enter the bookstore through a long staircase that acts as a projection that leads to a skylight which sets the illusion that you are walking towards the sky.
I designed a tower with Rhino and rendered it using the V-Ray Rhino Plug-in and Adobe Photoshop. This project will attempt to reconstruct the missing 58 towers to reassert San Gimignanoâ€™s lost heritage. San Gimignano is a hilltop town in Italy famous for its tower houses.
