Wyndham City Gateway Expression of Interest PRODUCED BY XINTI WEI MAN HO KWAN KIA TSZOUNS


01  |

GLANCE Driving through highway is not interesting. The moment you see something they leave your sight in seconds. Travellers do not recall things happened in between because they are out of your focus. Leafs by the road or a sign by road seemed forgettable, we do not expect excitement. We are creating uncertainty, unclear contour to stir interest of drive-by.

“WHAT WAS THAT? A CAT OR A LION? I CAN’T REALLY TELL.”

THE PERIPHERAL VISION

See straight, that this where your vision is most effective, objects on the fringe of our vision is not. Ironically when the driver come across, the project will be out of their horizon. Through manipulating this dramatic feeling of disappearing approach The final product to be visible only from far, and vanish when you get close, re-appear in your rear mirror.

INTERACTION In nature, reaction happens. Leaves move, bee stings. People expect interaction, things to change, happens. In Hylozoic series, Philip Beesley and team created a delicate system that react to existance of action. The surface rolls expands changes.

INTEGRATION

The process of integration not only demands the designer to imagine the project, but also use the advantages of computerised techniques to put the designer inside and out of the project simultaneously, which allows further manipulation of the project with a more wholistic horizon of perception to the project. Contemporary reinterpretations such as these can bring architecture to the present and provoke new interpretations of existing ideas.

UNIDENTIFIED FORM

Mobius is an endless loop which leads to our concept regarding this project. The gateway is on the side of a highway, “endless loop” promotes the motion, speed, sense of time, as well as sense of belonging. Through experimenting with the two sets of physical model ( interlocked & linked), we were able to get interesting changing results of the form, space itself and the light and shadow effect.

DE-FLATTEN SURFACE

The irregular surface is being visualized by a waffle. The contour remains when you see from side but disappear in the face.

It also project the change in sun angle further, since the ribs cast shadow on other, creating an overlapping shaded area.
