TECTONICCRAFTS OF CONSTRUCTION PARAMETRIC BUILDING FORM

Tectonics can be described as the art and science of construction. Sverre Fehn eloquently states ‘all architecture is depent on construction. Construction seeks the earth; it falls upon it. The eye, light and thought, that which spatially disturbs these words, is construction.’ But the origins of Tectonic reside in the Greek word tekton, meaning carpenter and builder and the Sanskrit word taksan, the craft of carpentry. In defining tectonics, Kenneth Frampton notes the poetic intent evoked by this term. G. Semper in the Four Elements of Architecture identifies the fundamental basis of architecture as: earthworks, hearth, framework/roof and light-weight enclosing fabric. These components all relate to construction. The SITE for the project is at the south edge of Shek O, Hong Kong Island. Our site is the Hok Tsui Village (鹤嘴邨), which is dilapidated after cottage industry was run for years. Our project aims to renovate, upgrade and rebuild it to an artist campus. In addition to deserted industrial workshop and village houses, there is an old fortress tower (碉楼)with historic value, estimated to be built in the early 20th century.

URBAN INTERVENTIONS VERTICAL CITY GENOTYPE RE-PERMEATING ULTRA-HIGH DENSITY LIVING ENVIRONMENT

The “genetic composition, inheritable information”, or Genotype, carried by all living organisms, holds the critical codes that are interpreted by cells to produce in reaction to the external environment the “observable characteristics, physical manifestation”, or Phenotype, of the living organism. The building concept is starting with a biological concept – symbiosis. Symbiosis mean there are 2 or 3 animal were having effect on each other, like positive, negative and neutral. The building is like a small community, integrated with different program, function and spacial quality. Symbiosis is letting program in building can benefit each other by using different architecture strategy. In the meaning of biology of symbiosis is close and often long-term interaction between two different biological species. Symbiosis can classify as following, Parasitism(+-), Mutualism (++), Competition(- - ), Commensalism(+ 0), amensalism (- 0). In architecture aspect, i reference on the biological explanation and make fit in the different design strategy. i divide different space like different relationship of symbiosis. the symbiosis concept is using for spacial arrangement and overall layout design.

ISOMETRIC DIAGRAM Using the parameters set out in the new Sustainable Building Design Guidelines as a base, in particular those requirements on permeability of buildings, the studio explores strategies for controlling density, porosity and proximity to reinterpret the ultra-­‐high density mass housing block as a vertical extension of the city’s fabric and activities: DENSITY: disposition and optimization (of area) of existing and new programs to foster a vibrant local community and to control the bulk of the new architectural interventions. POROSITY: control of permeability to facilitate air movement through the development to actively create a desirable micro-­‐climate in the neighborhood. PROXIMITY: generation of physical and visual network of spaces to improve connectivity from the lower levels to the higher levels of the vertical city and establish desirable destinations.

OPEN SPACE The open space design is basic on the program location, the open space is classify as two type, single-occupant and partial-occupant. Most of the Patricia-occulpant open space is designed between two program, provide the connection and interaction. Most of the single-occulpant open space was design to isolate the public area. that kind of open space provide enough privacy to that program user

The term ‘Ground Zero’ describes the point on the Earth’s surface closest to a detonation. Imagining an explosion above the ground, ‘Ground Zero’ refers to the point on the ground directly below the detonation. Every time a deconstruction of an existing building means a new building about to grow up. As an architecture student, the completion of a bachelor degree means how we start off. Each of us sets off and grow at the ground zero like a building. By that time, we are dedicated to build up our city.

STREE SHOPPING REDEFINE DYNAMIC PROGRAMMING AND TYPOLOGY

16

The site for this project is located at the border of Sheung Wan and Central, in an area which is nicknamed ‘NoHo’. With an area of about 2,100m2, the site contains an existing public open space, which is a common feature in many areas of Hong Kong. While these open spaces can provide a relief from the ense urban surroundings, often they seem unrelated to the urban pattern, and can appear as ‘left-over’ spaces between buildings. By absorbing the open space into the site area, the intention is that it can be designed with the shopping centre as a combined entity, so as to take on a more meaningful urban character as a whole. Another unique feature of the site is the large drop in level between its two sides due to the hilly topography of the area, and this should be taken as an opportunity for the spatial design and arrangement for the project. In order to maintain the overall open character and ambience of the site, the plot ratio for the shopping centre is set at 3, and at least 50% of the site area shall be re-provided as ‘open’ space. You are free to nterpret what this open space should be like, and how this space may be incorporated into your design; the only conditions being that it must have an open character and be accessible by public for 24 hours.

NARRATIVE SKINS DIGITAL MEDIA IN ARCHITECTURE In the spirit of clashing narrations and articulations of the estranging neighbourhoods in Hong Kong and to re-composite new narratives, the idea is to merge and fuse the 3D scanned fragment into a new and hybrid construct of space. Mixing the dark alleyways with the glittering neon signs, the sterile hospital corridor with a gritty kitchen in Mong Kok, collaging a place defined as culmination of flavours rather than an objectified walk. The video will be animate and projection map a designed virtual walk through the new hybrid narratives onto the skin of a new context.

The material of the furniture is plywood give a non-directional material to the force support. A non-directional material can provide the flexibility of the CNC milling layout. It also gives a enough support to the furniture.

The furniture can be separate into 4 furniture or one large table. A 90 degree edge can fit in the corner of a room, it gives a flexibility to the user. The corner is allowing the wire to go thought, make the furniture more elegant.

The furniture designed to be adjustable, the height of the furniture can be adjust to be a chair, desk or coffee table. The simple joint make the changes process in 3 minutes. Also, the jointing is a part of design of the furniture, the continuous design language between the joint and furniture itself.

Kelvin Ma Portfolio | RESEARCH BASE FINAL YEAR PROJECT

THE TYPOLOGY OF HONG KONG HIGH-RISE RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT: RECONNECTING BETWEEN COMMUNITIES ABSTRACT

Population growth, higher living standard and limit land supply has made the development of Hong Kong residential building typology. The development of building typology bring about a fundamental problem to community connection. The residential building typology has changed to a high density urban setting, from low- rise to high-rise. From an intensive community distance to community isolated, causing poor community connection. The solution is to bring skyway architecture to Hong Kong, reconnect communities of towers, society or even whole district. Case study could be use of oversea cases according to design factors and parameters from literature reviews. The finding form a general guideline to skyway design guideline, it can apply in Hong Kong scenario. Experimental design follow the guideline from overseas cases to test out the feasibility of skyway design guideline in Hong Kong scenario in perspective of special arrangement, programming and regulation. The finding of the analysis evidence that the skyway architecture can improve the community connection. Hence the new building typology can enhance the living quality of residents, through architectural design. The skyway is not just a physical connection, but also an essential living element to high-rise residential user. Hong Kong is possible for introduce skyway architecture as a residential building typology. Skyway architecture is a feasible solution for Hong Kong scenario.
