SITE PLAN

MASKS. They are an illusive reflection of reality. They are an agent through which one transforms from one identity to another. They have been long believed to hold a magical power in its pretentious nature, and used for rituals, traidtional ceremonies and dances. The MASK HOUSE is designed for a mask collector who collects, produces, and performs with traditional, ceremonial masks. It is a place of residence, of performance, and of gathering. The house focuses on the concept of duality - contrast between bright and interactive atmosphere of the centre of the house and the secretive and dark display room for the ritual masks.

Double-height central space brings light and sense of openness to the living and dining room Studio and storage area looks out to the river and gains diffuse northern light optimal for working focal point at the centre of the sunken stage visitor’s path of circulation, experiencing the extreme dynamics between dark and light

Prefabrication, Transportation and Assembly Using a truck bed as a structural shell and pallets as a shading device, this “extrasmall” TRANSITIONAL SPACE provides an affordable, sustainable and transportable lifestyle with minimal functions packed in a 40m2 space. The TRANSITIONAL SPACE is flexible and full of possibilieties, through use of transformable furniture, transformable shading device and features for sustainable living. Eventually, the project envisions formation of a community, a number of houses gathered around a communal kitchen.

INTERSTITIAL

1B studio

INTERSTITIAL

n. a small or narrow space or interval between things or parts, especially when one of a series of alternating uniform spaces and parts The project aims for a radical transformation of the generic suburban neighbourhood near Churchill Park by introducing INTERSTITIAL spaces at different scales. A web of intimate relationships is established with the existing neighbourhood, among the residents of the building, and among the family members. The INTERSTITAL spaces are no longer an overlooked and unoccupied interval, but a communicative, interactive and friendly space that strenthens a sense of community. Site Plan

Site Section

Establishment of a new promenade for the public.

The atrium that connects four individual units becomes a space of socialization.

Three bedrooms have openings that look into the living room, encouraging more active communication among family members. 11

Production of crude oil is in rapid decline; in the near future, thousands of offshore oil platforms in Gulf of Mexico and around the world will be abandoned.

Existing Superstructure of Cantarell Oil Field

Gulf of Mexico: Distribution of Offshore Oil Rigs

Abandonning or demolishing the superstructure is a great economic and ecological loss. Oil rigs, fully equipped with essential programs for living and excellent resources of industrial structure, have a strong potential for the future of architecture. OFFSHORE proposes renovation of Cantarell Oil Field, an aging supergiant oil complex in Gulf Mexico, into a hotel with warm equatorial climate and exotic view towards the ocean. Essential parts of the superstructure are to be recycled and reused to produce a monumental roof sturcture embracing the nature of ocean waves in gentle curves.

“We ask: what can be socialized or communalized in our domestic sphere?” How do we blur the boundary between the private and the public?

The radical alteration of threshold between the bedroom and the backyard questions the concept of public and private space in today’s Post-Fordist society. The backyard is transfomed into a semi-public space for viewers, while a sense of privacy and protection for the bedoom is strengthend by the curtains and the books blocking most area of the opening. The installation facilitates an experience of PEEKing into someone’s bedroom through the window, only to see the viewer’s face projected into the room superimposed on top of a reconstructed body with clothes; the relationship between private and public is reversed and the boundary is blurred.
