TUTOR Tyson Hosmer, David Reeves, Octavian Gheorghiu, Panagiotis Tigas, Ziming He COURSE Master Project

Tensegrity,defined by Buckminster Fuller, means a tensional integrity is a structural principle based on the use of isolated components in compression inside a net of continuous tension, in such a way that the compressed members do not touch each other and the prestressed tensioned members delineate the system spatially. Therefore, “Tensegrity� is a combination of rigid rods and cables that extract and retract to dynamically change the shape and size of the robot that they make up, offering inherent compliance through a versatile and highly mass efficient structure. The project is Autonomous/ Self-assembly/ Tensegrity system. Because the future is unpredictable, the building nowadays could not respond to or prepare for the future. Once the condition changes, most buildings cannot adapt to environment and requirement so as to meet the end with deconstruction. However, our system provides an nonstopping Life cycling possibility through flexible structures and intelligent 3

system for unpredictable future. As for what the tensegrity system can do, first feature is dynamic, providing sustainable building with tolerance of future, which means they can adapt to future condition. Next, the system is flexible and scalable which same structures can be narrow down to furniture scale but also expand to wall or more, as a load bearing shell structure. Moreover, one structure could be composited by multiple scale tensegrity and expanded or reduced structures easily for the changing requirements in the future. Thirdly, the deployable system could be prefabricated easily, convenience to transport and self-assembly without complicated constructed assistance and human labor during assembly process. After Construction, self-reconfigurable ability through the robotic design and machine learning could sense and receive the information from environment and users to carry out the adaption like living and evolutionary architecture.

Operation & Maintenance

The future is unpredictable, the building nowadays could only responds to or integrates with the current situation. Once the condition changes, Most buildings cannot adapt to it and meet the end with deconstruction. Nowadays, architecture and construction industry is paying more and more attention to the assessment of building life cycle because human society is facing increasing global issues such as global warming and resource depletion. The starting point of Adaptive Tensegrity is to rethink whether the traditional linear building life cycle could be changed through innovating structures, materials and design, and explore the possibilities of nonstop building life cycle which buildings are no longer difficult to change, but adapt autonomously with the change of environment, user requirements, etc. to achieve sustainability and conduct changing multiple conditions at the same time.

The project is located in the area of Baihe Reservoir. The purpose of the building is to promote the future sightseeing business in the jurisdiction and the efficiency of administration. The project is an integrated area including the administrative office, a tourist service center and a research center. Siraya is one of Taiwanese indigenous people. The feature of the scenic area is not only natural scenery but also abundant historic figures and cultural heritage. Therefore, the design concept incorporates the culture of Siraya, such as religion, traditional ceremonies, textile art and architectural features, so that visitors can deeply experience the characteristics of Siraya. As the site is located in the natural area, the building conforms to the surrounding terrain to reduce the influence of natural landscape. Moreover, the project is planned in accordance with Taiwan's green building design regulations. The case is currently under construction and is expected to be completed in 2020. 15

Service Proposal, Architecture Drawing

The project is an architectural design competition from government. The site is located in the Baoshan Campus of NCUE. Currently, there is a Jing-Shi Building I as the building of Department of Management and Finance. As the school considers the increase in the number of students and the demands of space, they decided a new building is built at the east side of the 1st building where is an open space for parking now. Design of connecting passage will connect the two buildings. As for the design concept, reflecting the design of building I, the building II will be designed by using the same modular structure, color and decorative belt to make the two buildings faรงade more harmonious. In the building volume, an open green atrium in the middle of the building to expand the space of the second building with a smaller volume, and to provide an open space to rest or communication in the two buildings. Moreover, each classroom and meeting room surrounds the atrium, so plenty of sunlight shines into interior to create a bright learning environment. On the third floor, a semi-open space was designed to increasing the ventilation and the view of the Baguashan is brought into the interior. 19

TUTOR Ting-Lung Lin COURSE Graduation Project

Kaohsiung Harbor is the largest international harbor in Taiwan, and was ranked in the top five container ports in the world before 2000. However, due to the migration of labor- intensive industries, the declining Kaohsiung harbor has had to develop a functional specialization towards tourism and professional shipping. Recently, when some buildings at the harbor were under construction such as the Maritime Cultural & Popular Music Center and Kaohsiung Port Terminal, the construction at the site was delayed which was planned to be used for tourism originally. The government and landlords kept hesitating because they were not sure if the future 25

development would attract enough investment from domestic and international enterprises, and foster the tourism. The part of harbor, Yancheng, contains the valuable tourism because of its culture and history which was the most prosperous district, if people keep ignoring the recession, there won't revive forever. The aim of the project was to promote industry and balance development by site analysis to find the problems and exploring the potential of the harbor.

COURSE Academic, Junior Laiyan Bridge The site adjoins Nanjing Confucius Temple Scenic Area and Qinhuai River. This area is an important field of academies during Six Dynasties. Nowadays, there is the Jiangnan cultural hub. In Jiangnan, traditional Chinese opera is one of important elements in Jiangnan culture. The purpose of the project is to combine with modern technology and performances to attract more people’s attention of traditional opera. Through the folk arts center, it not only can be considered as a center to protect and promote traditional opera, but also it can provide more chance to appreciate the art for people and tourists. The main concept of this design is derived from another one of the Jiangnan culture - Jiangnan Garden, which is famous in Chinese garden history. Because the site is located at the famous historic district in Nanjing, and many traditional opera were played in the gardens of the local aristocracy in the history of Jiangnan opera, I combined the architectural design and the spirit of Jiangnan Garden to design a building coordinating the local environment and create a classical atmosphere. 33

CITY TRACKS

The main concept starts from the old station plaza and combines the old underpass surrounding the train station and an underground museum. The old underpasses connect different regions near the station, whereas if they are abandoned, it will harm the public security, so they are designed as different entrances of the museum, and transformed to a time tunnel. The new underground museum provides different functions for the area along with the old station construction to display Taichung’s history and railway culture. The main feature is the connection between the museum and the square. The square is a new city square and also a roof of museum with ripple dynamic devices, so when people go through or do activities, they will touch this device and cause the effect of slight ups and downs. Relatively, the light will change like flow ripple in the museum interior which symbolizes the flowing time and by the flowing people trigger people’s perception of the city.

The old Taichung station is one of the national monuments of Taiwan which was established during the Japanese colonial period. It is a representative building in Taichung and an eternal memory for Taichung’s people. However, in recent years, as the growth of urban population and traffic demand, the old station had not been used enough, so the old station shut in 2016. Due to the development of new business areas in Taichung, the area near the station which is a commercial center in Taichung is declining. Environment and public security have become problems that the government has to solve. During the construction of new station, the government should embark on planning and updating the area, and properly deal with the subsequent development of the old station. The site is located in the oldest area of Taichung. The design combines the old station toward the development of a historical and cultural center in order to awaken the citizens’ memories and sense of belonging, and even transform the main business type to tourism which will stimulate the transformation and recovery of the surrounding urban space. 37

Dali district adjoins the downtown of Taichung. Dali is the second highest population density in Taichung. Recently, Dali was chosen to locate the Taichung Software Park in 2011 toward the development of high-tech industry. Dali Cultural and Creative Cluster is under construction. In order to improve the surrounding life function, the site is planned as a sports center because more people will settle in Dali for work after the completion of the software park, whereas there is only one sports center in Taichung, so there is lack of some leisure and entertainment space to exercise and relax. The living function is not yet perfect. Moreover, health center is planned to combine technology to let the residents could detect their health conveniently because in this area the trend of elder population is increasing and more and more software engineers will move there and need more healthy care for their busy work life style. The sports center will combine the surrounding new youth park and the existing baseball field to satisfy the demand of indoor and outdoor sports.

Therefore, this case is planned to build an independent exhibition space in the campus for more exhibition places and even providing artists with short-term studios. Artists can work with design students to let students have more chances for learning and view. The design coordinates with the campus environment. There is without any shelter near the building, so in view of preserving exhibits, the eastwest design is closed to reduce sunlight, and northsouth design is see-through to reduce the barrier between those buildings and oppressive feeling.

Individual Project

TUTOR Li-Ya Wang COURSE Academic, Sophomore

The purpose of a female leisure club is to provide women with their own space to exercise and rest. In this generation, feminism is gradually being promoted, so more women are not devoting their whole life to family but to the workplace and even trying to love themselves more. However, most users of sport places are men, and men's and women's favorite sports are different. Therefore, a female leisure club not only addresses to the needs of women but also brings women more privacy to achieve complete relaxation. In the design concept, because yoga is the main service at the female leisure club, the core of concept is “3 Nadis and 7 Chakras� in yoga, the different spaces are designed according to the arrangement and features of 7 Chakras, and then they are connected with the flow like 3 Nadis. The feelings of spaces and the spirit of yoga are integrated perfectly.
