Loggie:

< Brief > Continuing our exploration into atmospheres and performative states, DRS3 focus on the relationship between materiality and occupation, real and the imagined and design of a choreographed spatial proposition that anticipates change. This year DRS 3 are exploring the nature of reciprocal space, with earth and the ready-made as the main material focus. We are fascinated in how the performance of life, back and forth ,up and down, inside and out, repeating and disappearing, transforms as we negotiate the vertical and horizontal planes alongside the complexities of linving in an ever-changing unknown future. As spatial designers we craft materials to compose space and thresholds that shape how elements could orchestrate and enhance the way we live. Together these manifest as behaviour-scaled architectures, demonstrating a vibrant aesthetic and sensitivity to space.

Public Pavillion

Little Venice, London

Unit 9, major design project

SketchUp, Cad, Photoshop Illustrator, Physical Model

< Design > The project begain by immersing ourselvers in the fabrication of a mobile sanctuary - a space for life. Using ready-made objects to stack a resting space, individually we were intuitively explore how architectural thresholds, atmospheres and material performance interplay. With this information and knowledage, we transformed these spaces to propose a new public realm for the site - Little Venice. We were asked to build upon our public realm and to design an inhabitable narrative for Little Venice.

Memory Loggie is a public pavillion. It is a resting and interative place designed for the residents and visitors. The intention of my project is use material and structure to make an experience in the space that recollects people's memory of the past city life and creates the new memory for the current generation.

- Site Environment : Our Site

Mapping the surrounding environment of the site, knowing the functionalities, activities and the habitation group of this area.

Our Site Located between the Paddington Basin and the little venice. It is a public area without methodical design. Trees occupied almost all the place but also are the most beautiful objects in this space.

Little Venice is a scenic and affluent part of London, known for its canals and moored boats.

Spatial Intallation

Unit 9, final year design

< Design > Sanctuary : Memory of Materials is spatial art installation that stacked by multipul wasted materials which are found in different reconstruction sites around Finsbury and Pimlico in London. The purpose of this work is to regrasp people's attention into the discarded architectural material, to discuss the relationship between humen, architecture, space and time. As time has passed and urbanization progressed, more and more places that carried memories and emotions of the past generation have been demolished, dismantled and distorted. The former fabrications of those spaces are missing and never to return but the memory of the past are still inside peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s minds. As Gaston Bachelard writes in The Poetics of Space: â&#x20AC;&#x153; through the brilliance of an image, the distant past resounds with echoes.â&#x20AC;? Thus, my question is: Can such an image exist in one space?

- Sanctuary :

/ ' saNGk(t)SHÉ&#x2122;,werÄ&#x201C; /

1. a place of refuge or safety. 2. a nature reserve. "a bird sanctuary" 3. a holy place; a temple or church. - the inmost recess or holiest part of a temple or church. -the part of the chancel of a church containing the high altar.

- My Definition of Sanctuary : - Place with Memories My definition of the sanctuary is a space where contains memory and history that remind people to think about their past lives. it should be a place that makes people feel familiar and secure. The original image of my Sanctuary is the house that I spent my childhood. When I stood in that house I could see: the marks on the wall that my father made to measure my height; the old chair in the garden fixed by my grandfather, which is my favourite as I used to set there finishing my homework; the dirty marks on the wall caused by my friends and me when playing games; and all the other familiar signs that remind me all the happiness of my childhood. When I closed my eyes, I could image the shape of the signs, the touch of the furniture and the smell of my small old bed. All those materials carry my memories and give me a protected and secured shelter. Images are from my personal summer project in my hometowen Take photo of my childhood friends with our memory place where is being demolished.

- Memory : 1.the faculty by which the mind stores and remembers information. 2.something remembered from the past; a recollection.

- Memory places has being changed However, as the time passed and the urbanization processed, more and more old houses that carry the memories and emotions of the young generation like me have been demolished to build new commercial apartments. We living in a world that old stuff continuing be replaced by new objects, even the big scale objects such as buildings, architectures, and landscapes. I feel like, during this changing process, something is missing and never to return. When I walked around my hometown this summer, took photos of the buildings under demolition around the old city area, I was confused: why people nowadays prefer all things to be new and strange? Why can they not figure out a solution that could give those old buildings new lives instead of knocking all them down? What they gonna do with those waste architectural material and damaged furniture pieces from the broken building? Images are from my personal summer project in my hometowen Take photo of my childhood friends with our memory place where is being demolished.

- London Changes : Material arounds us changed a lot.

Walk around London, notice the construction happened everywhere. The city is changing, the object around us is changing, materials in our daily life are changing, the information is changing. It just happening outside my window, I witnessed people left their old house, throw out their old furniture, and going to move into a modern apartment. I decided to collect some ' memory ' from those changes.

- Masonry Structure

Masonry is the building of structures from individual units, which are often laid in and bound together by mortar; the term masonry can also refer to the units themselves. As a traditional classical construction way, Mosonry seens in everywhere. It works with different type of materials, it is another memory.

03.Details and Spacesďź&#x161; < Brief > " Zen understands a specificity of thing -event to be a recapitulation of the whole; parts and the whole are to be lived in an inseparable relationship through an exercise of onodiscr imnator y wisdom, wit hout prioritizing the visible ouver the invisible, the explicit over the implicit, and vice versa. It is a Zen conception that the world is the sum of a series of details. We an also understand architecture in the same way, as a series of details creating a whole. < Design > Tate Britain retains classical language of architecture, it was first built in 1897and subsequently extended over the years, which is a treasure of subtle and beatiful details and ornaments. Chelsea College of Art were originally built in the same period as the Tate which in style of Imperial Barique and French Renaissance.

Details and Spaces project, is a study

in the architectural details of both sites, focusing on the historic ornamental language of both buildingconplexes. We were document these details in drawings and models at 1:1scale. Two chosen detials were enlarged to form large structures, large enough to inhabit inside. In this group project, I was in charged of the " design the form from details â&#x20AC;&#x153; part, and my design was choosed to become the final structure. Also, I was highly particepated in the every stage of building process, played the roll as vicleader.

- The Nebuta structure

We studied the building techniques and skills of traditional craftmen of the Japanese paper festival float Nebuta in Aomori. The Nebuta float has a squared timber skeleton, to which wire, bent to form a complex shapes,is attached and on which shoji paper is glued.

- Test Models

During the prototyping phase we explored how these techniques could be asopted to the proposed design and function and explored issues and chanllenges of transforming scale models into full scale, inhabitable structures,constructed from wire,timber and Shoji paper.
