ZEN TOWER

PORTFOLIO. Ming

Docklands have been developing rapidly in the recents decades, apartments, high rise offices, shopping mall, factory outlets, etc are built. Construction sites are always visible in context. I would say docklands is developing too fast. It seems to be in a chaos and money-driving developers are fighting for nominal gain. Meditation - rethinking - is needed. In this project, I am proposing a meditation method from the east - buddhism and shitoism - ZEN is the relized form of meditation, in the attainment of enlightenment. Docklands has always been a busy place, A Public space for people to relax and meditate is the best way to promote a healthier life style.


ZEN TOWER

ZEN Tower

In the proposed zen tower, local weather conditions are used as an agent to enhance the quality of meditation. From Public, to highly enclosure, then to moderate enclosure, finally to Extrevme exposure.

Nothingness This section of the tower is focus on NOTHINGNESS & EMPTINESS. The intention is to block Users from interacting with the envrionemnt and weather condition, so one could focus on meditation.

A contrast is made between extreme Enclosure in this space and once get out of the spaces, the re-encounter to the envrionment may achieve the ideology of zen meditation.

Water is important in zen meditation. as one submurged into the water, surrounding noise and weather condition will be isolated. In most religion, water has the ability to purify. In nowadays busy working life, a swimming pool will be a great retreat for office workers and city dwellers. amazing view are captured in these section of the tower.

Calmness is achieved as sunlight illuminate the space indirectly using the swimming pool and water feature as a buffer, as well as a slit in the ceiling to let sunlight relect into the space through the back wall.

Openness 6th & 7th Floor gives an open rooftop to the ZEN TOWER, It is about openness. Visitors are totally expose to the weather environment (Especially SunLight + Heat). This is the final stage of the zen journey. Form Nothingness, to calmness, and finally to Openness.

Rooftops at sunset - Stairs to “Immortality” - the path to zen

The Rooftop is featuring a Stair to nowhere. As ZEN believe that human body is just a container of our soul, if we want immortality, we have to overcome our human limitation, the body is a boundary for one to achieve ultimate zen.

THE SPIRAL Ambiguity

In response to the idea, there are a few strategies in designing. 1 ambiguous floor levels 2 ambiguous space between front of house and back of house 3 ambiguous journey experience

Appreciate by involving

Another idea is that I believe appreciating a piece of art should involving understand and learning about the artwork. In the theatre design, I highly promote the connection between the back of house and the front of house, inteactive areas could be used as education workshop, teaching youngsters to understand theatre. I hope the design could be a factory of promoting theatre in Melbourne. ART IS ABOUT DOING!

ORDINARY WALL same experience going forward and backward

BRIDGING AND INTERACTION SHARING WITH THE PUBLICS

MIXING THE FUNCTIONS WITH MORE INVOLVEMENT OF THE PUBLIC

CREATING ANGLED PLANE FOR EXCITMENT

ANGLED WALL creating unseen areas and different experence when traveling in different direction

TRADITIONAL HORIZONTAL WALL provide separation for different spaces and visual barrier

?WALL? function not as a wall promote activities and interaction with people

RAISING THE THEATRE CREATE A PUBLIC SPACE FOR THE NEIGHBOURHOOD GENERATING VIEWS TO THE STREETSCAPE
