The Kitchen Sink Theatre

The Kitchen Sink Theatre

1. This project is intended to raise the underachieving consciousness in everyday life. The consciousness of a person to their surroundings heightens dramatically when there is the existence of an audience. Through experiencing a place just as the performer, the audience discovers details of this place that were not revealed before; even if he/she is passing by every day. Performers’ stories are not so far away from our own stories and emotions, and are not so far away from our own experiences. Set in old town in Morecambe, the study envisages boundaries between life and performance that perform multiple functions. 2. The Kitchen Sink theatre inhabits a series of shops include laundry, hair salon, pub, kitchen, and script writer's domain and a main theatre with rehearsal space and exterior stage set. The transformation begins as shops undergo the shift in function; The theatre unfolds itself into the landscape and expands its boundaries from hidden places to the streets. Performances question the ideas of what and where is the stage. The experience starts from concealing and its opposite and all the in-betweens.

"The city, however, does not tell its past, but contains it like the lines of the hand, written in the corners of the streets, the gratings of windows, the banisters of the steps...." Invisible city

- SITE EXPERIENCE SECTION Urban fragments | Spatial collage | Memory | Threshold | Moments Initially explored spatial organizational system consisted of architectural fragments spread in the city, forming the conditions for this alternative way of engaging to the veiled urban moments.

3. The open access penetrating the theatre also serves as a circuit in a city with a strong acoustic experience of leaving the outside world behind and entering a building. The involvement pushes the act of observation and questioning. The tunnel of peep is layered with dense overlapping. Flexibility in structure allows spaces to flow into and out of each other. The inside and outside are directly spoken to...

- SPECULATIVE DRAWING Streetscape | Setting the scene| Visual trace | Dynamic | Audience & performers The key ideas of the project are developed through drawing study of surrounding streetscape, and the visualized threshold which the body is in a state of dynamic interaction with the surrounding. The language of threshold is further strengthened by the notion of glimpse, acting as the generator for the potential of human action.

Structure of Intimacy

Structure of Intimacy

The playful structural element, and soft fabric, intend to triggers events, building becomes a spontaneous stage, the play becomes a unique mix of everyday routine and improvisation, contribute to a micro-choreography generating an event that changes from day to day.

Year 2 Project Location: Wakefield River canal, UK


The Hepworth Workshop

The Hepworth Workshop

The Project is a sculpture studio, response Barbara Hepworth's sculpture and her making process, situated at a canal in Wakefield, a bridge connecting the city and river. The program is a complex of sculptors studios, gallery, meditation space, bridge, Hepworth's space, and sculpture gardens. A series speculative drawings, made pieces intend to seek the materiality, light quality, and spatial quality. - SITE PLAN -

The Hepworth Workshop

The Hepworth Workshop

1. Rhythm of strings: Strings response ethos of Hepworth's sculpture, also serve as structural element, separate space into multi layers, the rhythm becomes a delicate language, guide passers-by into experience of performances & exhibitions inside, river and cityscape outside. 2. Sculpting the light: The big exhibition space is relative dark, light is concentrate on displayed sculptures through light tubes, the middle sky light lighten the passage, all together create special genius loci. 3. Hollows: Hollow as Hepworth's key ethos, being reinterpret into architecture, spatial hollows, hollows in the walls, hollows in the roof lights. Through hollows people looking each other, looking the sky, looking the sculpture, looking the performance of artist.

Artists working process becomes kind of 'performance', each individual studio is like a small stage.

Professional Works Zaha Hadid Architects

The Culture Centre’s site is at an interfacing position in the centre of Qingdao Bay: Located between the Wetland Park to the West and a commercial and residential area to the North and East, it offers the opportunity to become a negotiating element between urban structures and landscape elements in the master plan. The sites southern interface gives it access to the seafront promenade, exposing it both to views from the bay and giving it an exclusive first-row-seat in Qingdao Island’s seafront skyline. Whilst the site landscape re-presents the characteristic elements of Water and Green Land, the building Envelope resembles Qingdao’s Topography: The Venues are enclosed under a composition of floating shells, resembling hills and mountains, reflected in the ponds of the landscape. This roof topography forms a mirror over the landscape topography underneath, gently lifting and lowering, forming a rhythm of arches and openings in elevation, allowing visitors to step underneath and explore the inside. Internally they create generous and dynamic spaces with an organic and natural appearance. The roof shells are designed as form active space frames, combining material efficiency, wide spans and elegant appearance. Their floating character allows the building’s envelope to naturally adapt to the sites slope and height difference, and gives the building a light and delicate appearance.

Central Bank of Libya

Central Bank of Libya

Central Bank of Libya Group project Location: Tripoli, Libya

Role in team: Diagram drawing, Conceptual drawing, Plan drawing, Section drawing, Maya modelling The Design Proposal for the Central Bank of Libya is guided by the idea of creating a connective, visually open and inviting piece of Architecture, em Bank’s ambition to become a trusted factor for Stability in the new Libya: The building is rooted in and emerges from the landscape, connected to the ground and at the same time providing an overview above it; it is visually open to all sides and at the same time, vice-versa, it provides insight and symbolized transparency as an institution dedicated to serving the Libyan State and its people. It seeks the dialogue with the landscape, appears open and legible, is moderate in its vertical scale and interfaces with the granularity of the surrounding urban fabric, and strikes the observer with its elegant, avantgardistic appearance as a symbol for intelligent, forward-facing and responsible acting on behalf of the Libyan State and society.
