It is about to make a stage in the open but

surrounded. In this project, two used containers are also provided along with the material and technique of pneumatics.

In order to form the stage half surrounded, as it

has to have a symbolic backstage in case to generate an orientation to be watched, but at the meantime to be seen from all directions, for winning more audience, one container stands above another perpendicularly when being seen from the top.

As to giving the containers a new skin by differing

inner and outer space in an aesthetically balance, the voronoi theory has been applied for splitting the whole one space in a three dimension way. Then, after integrating the original container skins with those cutting surfaces into a clear facade, through, again, the same voronoi theory but in the second dimension, those facets are now produced. For the purpose of keeping a dynamic conversation with body movement, temporary transparency emerges, when those two transparent PVC foils, as the material of the facets, printed separately with positive and negative chess pattern, are away from each other by utilising pneumatic mechanism, which inflates one of the two rooms and forces one foil pressed aside; if it’s another inflated, the facet becomes opaque.

PROCESS


Another pneumatic variation in light construction. In Geometry, a hyperbolic paraboloid surface

belongs to the anti-clastic group. The difference between an anti-clastic and a clastic surface is that the anti-clastic has two different curvature on each point on the surface; in contrary, the clastic has only one.

Folding is a method applied for strengthening

structure by passing the load along the folding edges and using lighter material in order to have a foldable or flexible construction.

A membrane can easily form a hyperbolic parabo-

loid surface. However, it needs to be tightly fixed on the upper and lower sides. The application of pneumatics along with folding method can help improving this weakness.

The anti-clastic surface can be separated into

smaller facets in rule of folding structure. By using PVC materials, the facets are inflated in order to indurate the whole construction. Because of the inflation, the pressure establishes between adjacent facets, this makes the whole surface stand but with the tendency of expanding itself. By fixing the edge touching on the ground and pulling it towards inside, the surface needs no longer the upper fixing but also creates a space under it.

A pavilion, standing, flexible and easy to trans-

port.

is not still. It lives, moves and changes fitting our needs, as then we follow their changing as well. Agenda: “How we change our behaviour to fit in, if our surroundings change?� At first, we observe.

To invade, a virus uses a DNA-chain, a Trojan

Horse, to cross the cell wall, resolves itself, affects the cell core, finally reaches its aim of reproduction and spreads further.

Zooming out from the in-world of a human body, we

Movement

see one lying on an arm chair. While the length of the chair changes, he/she fits the body by newly positioning those arms and legs.

Jumping back to an old battle around a castle, we

see the topology change during changing positioning between the invaders and defenders. Since the occupier of a room varies his/her role of the play, this specific room is named or defined by the usage and the activity of that person.

By learning from these three cases, we under-

stand: the relation between objects and activities, the one hierarchy of materials from human limbs, human bodies, furniture, rooms, buildings, streets, districts, cities, and so on; the other abstract one: the facts of each level, how each object behaves and locates for acting with or reacting to the others.

back to a few original sources of development, and the Rao-He Street in Song-Shan District was one of them, especially because of the benefit from its location on the riverside of Dan-Shui river, which carried most of commercial transportation of supports for the city.

Observing the activities in the city during three

different time periods and locational spots: historical/district, nowadays/streets, daily/site, we can then zoom-in into a proper scale and site for understanding the change and the reaction.

The area around the site has, for a long time, the

very important commercial activity, which also combines the another significant one: transportation. Additionally, since from the past people usually live where they work - nowadays is another reason: not enough place - the another active factor is the mixed residence.

By analysing these activities, there exist a few

conflicts between each two or all of three of them. They are sometimes happened one after another then the time break is the separation; if happening at the same time, in a separate spaces, they’ll have physical boundaries; however, some of them could be mixed in time or in space, then the invisible line between will be drawn, depending on how they are understood and seen with utilising different tools.

The

historical analyses are showing the background why it’s seen as so as what the following daily analyses detailed are telling.

SPACE


The specific character of a night-market in Taiwan is the

temporality. It happens mostly at a temporary place: a parking lots area, which functions as parking at daytime, and in the night, the area becomes a proper place for some relaxation; so the same is also a street, such as the Rao-He Street, which, but has a few certain advantages more - as a former commercial port, an assembly of goods and people - and also nowadays as a street, not the most but a second heavy transportation conveying line, close to the main line as well.

In contrast to this temporary trading activity, on the same

street, shops and a traditional market - Song-Shan Market - run also for satisfying other daily needs.

Right at the corner, intersected by Song-Shan Market and

Rao-He Street, we see daily, routinely, following or crossing, it overlap on spot the many activities: living, trading, passing and parking. To reform the intersection becomes an assignment of “assisting the users for achieving their activities by the change of the time being.�

Speaking of temporality, we see on site many compact

ways of saving room and multi-functions: stacking plastic chairs, folding tables, rolling selling-carts and even a tent roof the street across. For sparing, the space is drawn out by using sliding walls, on which the installations are attached. By on using selected common on site movements, the two installations - one for selling stand, another for settling a pair of bench and table - are opened or closed by continuous following human body positions from lower to upper ones, or another way around.

Through the assistance for its users, the whole project

shows how people suit themselves for a routinely change circle around them.

A brilliant white light shined upon this building along that edge of the tilted facade wall, in a sunny winter morning.

This has been seen, however, only as a stroke of the sun, on this seeming all tilted house.

A picture caught this moment but showed an alternative interpretation.

Neither stands this stroke tilted, but seems perpendicular.

Nor seems the rest of the picture vertical, but tilted. It becomes a new start to understand the building. Please, be seated on this “decliner�, lean your body aside, take another glance on the building once more.

It is written on the page 203: “He walked down to the end of the corridor, there was a door, closed. He got to the door.”

This ends that page.

However, this starts the next one, page 204, after you turn over the last one: “In the middle of the room, there was a woman, sitting on the couch...”

Did you read between the pages? In the urban development history in St.Marx, Vienna, the

building “Rinderhalle”(Hall of Beef), had played with “Viehmarkt”(Market of Cattle) a role: providing the need of meat to the city. Although the support has been replaced by the imports from foreign country, however, the influence left on the neighbourhood can still be traced nowadays from the district development of becoming the Vienna Bio Center. Now, after renovated, it becomes an event hall, for concerts, parties, and etc., but no more markets.

Time flows, like glue, in a continuous physical form, running down along the transparent panels, leaving traces in different curvy shapes, separately. If we “trace back”, we see through the panels and understand the happened by collecting and combining the curves of the traces. However, what exactly happened between each adjacent curves is left unknown. So is the blank, unwritten, left between the written events as well.

Memory is the combination of events. A surface, formed

by the curves in right orders connected, represents a tracing back, or a presumption of the story. In various scales, a certain shape is picked up / cut off from the whole time-running-surface, in order to form this


architecture at its elements. From half visible structure, through recognisably continuous facade surface, until finger perceptible handrail. You’d walk inside, see around and touch everything, but you shall feel it however cannot perceive it as a whole. As we can live in the flow, but don’t see the flow.

Now, the question is: Did the man really get into the room?

Or,

PARAM

Does the room even have the door anyway?

Do you still think you have “read” between the pages and

get the whole picture?

It’s only for time to answer, but for us to remember.

This project is tailored for the “Solar Decathlon 2013�,

which will be hold in Washington D.C. in 2013. The first challenge of it contains a 5.5 meter height limit and an area footprint limit 90 m², and additionally, within these measurement conditions, a compact family house should, not only be a passive house, but win also as much as solar energy through its technology scheme. However, most of all challenges, an important aspect in architectural aspect should be also well thought.

Modularity has been applied for a concept. Modularity is a

repetition of elements for building an integrated as a whole. It is applied in different scales of this building. From the main components of the building, the frames - within every of which contains isolation material, and every two adjacent of which are connected by the hook system -, the inside wall and the flexibility of furniture - every single line of which, vertical or horizontal, is following the frame structure rule: the distance from the each point on this line should have a some proportion from one end to another -, until the unitised cut wooden panels in the middle part of one side of the frames. They can all be organised into a modularised utility. The production or assembling processes and costs can be simplified and reduced. Additionally, a solar energy house with photovoltaic technology, should be optimised in a way according to the tilted angle, oriented towards southwest, of the roof, which can be adjusted and optimised by changing a few simple parameter in its algorithm, which repeatedly creates frames under a same geometrical principle, however, just because of a tiny difference between each adjacent frames, creating a minimal house but full of form variation and individual interior becomes possible.

Each frame is in a module, and the module makes the house

rhythmic.

Coming from this point further, it’s been converted into concerning geometrical, parametric and generative process. Basic geometry, the points, understood as existing objects in reality or things in philosophy, have been given vectors (directions), operated as topological relations or philosophical facts; thus, these points and vectors have been realized in parametric controlling and represent the generation of the world, of which it’s spoken, by all the different parameters.
