Children’s Institute Reconstruction What is softness? For my thesis, softness means soft contact to create comfort. So, softness is not only looking soft but feeling soft. What is an architecture of softness? In reality, most buildings are hard. What would happen if we replaced traditional hard structures with soft ones. Imagine if the walls were soft, if the door was soft, if the windows were very soft. This thesis is about architectural softness, which emulates an aesthetic of cuteness, and the project is tested in a courtyard that embraces openness. 09

Still lifes


Soft materials are too pliable; therefore, they need to be contained. I reference Morandi’s painting to get my containers.

On Softness

Graduate Thesis Asset Model These soft materials support each other, resulting in new density material that doesn’t belong to any particular recognizable construction reference.



On Softness

Graduate Thesis Soft Material for Architecture The object of every day can be the plush toys and some clothes, while the construction part will be the plaster, steel rods, and insulation.



On Softness

Graduate Thesis

1:1 Wll Detail model Soft materials are too pliable; therefore, they need to be contained. Such as concrete formwork that needs to coalesce together by casting into a mold. All the hybrid of softness and hardness is plasticity, which means soft in my thesis.


On Softness



I also use those soft and nature texture for my program to realize the casting effect in digital way.

Graduate Thesis




The program is a reconstruction of a children’s institute, a 1900s residence in 701 S. New Hampshire Avenue, Los Angeles. This building has a neoclassic style with a central courtyard.

Graduate Thesis Vertical Playground For this project, the container is a series of vertical volumes, thought of as still life objects, parallel to Moradin’s painting of still lifes. This courtyard refers to San Pietro in Montorio, which has a Tempietto within a narrow courtyard. 021


On Softness

Graduate Thesis

Section Softness provides openness for the courtyard, and the original building embraces the soft part inside. Accordingly, the relationship between the courtyard and the old building is reversed. The courtyard is the central space for the children’s institute, while the perimeter one becomes the circulation and auxiliary space.


On Softness Detail


There are two side of vacuum, and I stick them together, to be my container.

Inflatinge & Exhausting Air The studio aims to use architecture and garment or body architecture as wavs to increase the possibilities for rapid response design, in the current global context. To speculate the speed, scales, traditions of what we consider the habitat, it will allow us to think innovative paces for the body,nature and the city, creating new forms of life, and integration between the home and inhabitants, as new ways of life synthesis. Bringing the architecture of the body and architecture of the habitat together in a very literal manner, not as healing elements, but understanding these operations as opportunities for new individuality ahd a way of self-empowerment.

Le Musée Imaginaire

Design Studio 2GBX, 2019 Location: LACAMA, Los Angeles, US Instructor: Damjan Jovanovic Partner: Mitsuki Ikeda Video: https://vimeo.com/545901145

LACAMA Post Digital Museum Lacma is organized as an encyclopedic museum that includes natural artifacts from Asia, Europe, and the Americas as well as fine art. The objects in the museum are detached from its associated context and framed as art by dominant institutions for the sake of possession, status, wealth, and knowledge in the history of art. Aspired to be an encyclopedia museum in a new era, the project raises a question for this fact, and propose a new concept of the relationship between art and its context. With the progress of visual technology like VR and AR, the value of visiting and physically experiencing arts at the museum is also changing. This project proposes a new value of museums in the digital generation.

Le MuséeImaginaire VirtualContext


The proposed museum introduces intermediate virtual information layer around the objects. It is an aura emitted from the object itself, showcasing another perspective of the objects in the different media formats. At the same time, it is a partitioning device between spaces dedicated to each object.

Interior People view in the interior.



Rooftop Garden

Le MuséeImaginaire

The most external particles generate an artificial landscape on the surface of the building. Floating in the sky, the collaboration of geometric prisms and living vegetation creates an illusory atmosphere on the rooftop garden. The passage between objects provide places for a cafe, rest space, community space, and also the display of the sculptures.

Design Studio 2GBX


The rooftop garden is spatially connected to the ground level by the vertical void. The cave-like courtyard is an entryway from the city to the museum. It serves as a public space for both people and artifacts.

Co-working Space in Fuzzy Boundary Our studio took a lot of photos from China town, and modeledthose image through scan technology. We separated these elements , recombined them, deployed them on different architectural scales, changed the positive forms to negative, and define them with new functions. Our project explores the possibility of a fuzzy boundary in a very new kinds of method, using texture. We not only want to physically dissolve the boundaries of buildings, but also try to create vagueness regarding the boundary on the level of culture and history.

The textures include a stone statue of a sheep, a Chinese tower, a ball below lion’s claw and a Chinese lantern.

Design Studio 2GAX Bubbles We use the texture of scattered bubbles to create a lot of interstitial spaces. Therefore, the boundary of the ground to the building is very fuzzy. Then, we put three towers on top of those bubbles. In this way, the boundary between the main building and the site is blurred in the vertical dimension. The building appears as if it is suspended, like a floating island.

Physical Model


The original material is derived from strong, figural lines and curves.

One of our buildings is designed with an ancient Chinese tower placed upside down as the building’s roof. Therefore the tower’s spire serves as a structural column to support the public space overhead on the ground floor. People can pass under the building and feel the element of the ancient tower, while having a new spatial experience.

We scaled the ball below lion’s claw several times to become the facade of a building. A sunken plaza serves as an entrance to the ball space, having a contemporary design aesthetic.

Post-Digital Design We are living in the mechanical age. Painted canvas and standing plaster figures no longer have any reason to exist. What is needed is a change in both essence and form. What is needed is the supercession of painting, sculpture, poetry, and music. It is necessary to have an art that is in greater harmony with the needs of the new spirit.” —Lucio Fontana 087

Playing in the game of part to whole, the course looks at the potential of a gestural cut as a device for the production of dualities in anontologically weak system. Concepts of inside/out, open/close, right/wrong are challnged in a surface in continuous evolution in between opposing identities.

Processing Edit

The project was constructed starting from a series of parametrically and generative designed patterns playing with repetition, tiling and overlapping. From a first path in Grasshopper, the linework was enhanced in Illustrator and After Effect before being printed double side and carved out of the canvas itself and plexiglass sheets. The elements were compiled on a CNC frame and mounted on the robotic arm. The panel was video recorded while oriented in different position in relation to gravity and camera view to take advantage of the natural fold of the cut and the different light effect of the hatches. At the end, we combined material in form physical and digital form in the Robot House to construct a synthetic . We try to display the 2.5D canvas in post-digital area.

Self-sufficient Domesticity Domesticity is more than traditional family life in modern times. In the context of the quarantine, people have slowly adapted to life in isolation. Domesticity is self-sufficient. As our source of inspiration, the household has turned our kitchen into a living studio. We are at home, work, and life alternate, becoming our self-sufficient production line. The kitchen has become the plane of our work and life.

Moving Forward into VR Leviathan tells the story of a Russian car mechanic who is fighting to stop his home from being seized and destroyed by a corrupt mayor. The film mostly takes place in the home’s kitchen and the surrounding coastal village, and examines the relationship between the fisherman, his family, friends, and various political entities.



VR Leviathan


Space / Atmosphere / Emotion Kitchens are the heart of the home, a space of gathering, of comfort. We wanted our scene to feel lived in, to convey the imprint of those who lived there, and their last moments inhabiting the space.

We plan to locate the viewer in the c tion, and take our cues from the inta people who live in


center of the kitchen. We will imagine what the rest of the space will look like in terms of mess and destrucact interior views from the film. We hope to dress the set with props and items that reflect and represent the n this home. Our plan is to consider what items might be left behind, and what cues they give the audience.

Transformation to the future This notion of Anthropocene also puts human power as an equal status to Nature and brings to mind that we, empowered with modern technology, are making our choices at the crossroads— toward a utopia condition or the other end. This project therefore illustrates the contamination of nature by human settlement with evidences of a lake’s transformation projected from the past, the present and to the future.
