Project 1

Contents

Cartesian Prism: writing the rules of the space maker game and a composite sythesis

Project 2

Action Space: Constructing a place of ritual and considering the poetic dimension of human action

Project 3 House Analysis (Esherick House)

Project 4

Ground control: engaging the compositional relationsip between figure and field


Project 1 Cartesian Prisim writing the rules of the space maker game and a composite sythesis


Prism cubes introduction to tectonic idea of space and volume


Establish the volume and space orientation through the foam core


Demonstration of the space and tectonic by using the idea of frames from basswood.


Frames and the fold of planerly ideas establish the strong idea of nesting and framing around the internal space


Final Project 1 with the space active space. I change a interesting space to deomonstrate the hiearchy of the particular space.


Project 2 Action Space Constructing a place of ritual and considering the poetic dimension of human action


My shadow client was Nina Simone. So I decide to have a several actity space for her living space. Musical Loung, live recoring spaces, mini stages for guest or friends performances, etc. Which might have a lot of relation to her carrer.


Project 3 House Analysis (Esherick House) Louis Kahn


In this project, I analyse and learn how the architect Louis Kahn conduct his design in this house. He has an clear idea of A B A spacial arrangement in the house. The clearance between serve or served space in the house.


Project 4 Ground control: engaging the compositional relationsip between figure and field


The Aim of this project is to create a clear communication of desgin stretegies. Formal Order, Spatial Volume, Sequence. So I decided formal order as my main role of my design for the house.


Three study model inspire by Esherick house.


Last rough idea before the final model. Which expressed a strong ideal idea of formal order and a little spatial volume according to the strategies.


Yellow and Green played a great role in highlightting up the dark shades. These two colors also establish the central idea of formal order of ABA service (A) and served (B) functionality of a building


“Architecture is the learned game, correct and magnificent, of forms assembled in the light.� Le Corbusier
