To what category or academy does architecture lies? Some says culture, some says art, some consider architecture itself should deserve its catogory. The World Trade Centre is a total aesthetics example of the modern architecture of the time, 1970. It is on the otherhand “a symbol of capitalism� in contrast to the Islamic culture. The World Trade Centre is an aesthetical project as well as a political project. The presence of architecture in city is undeniable. It is open there to discuss and to be discussed. When architect decide to take upon a project, architect is never the sole decision maker. What the architect is able to do is then the express his stance through the architecture. Whether the project addresses the cultural, the aesthetic or the political it is the decision of the architect. However it must be subjected to a diffrerent interpretation from peoples of different field. The archietctural thesis is statement of declaration of the architect about his stance for the specific topic. Defining the scope of topic to be discussed, from this point, it can then consider whether this stance can be further developed and sees the world with his own eye. The thesis is then the eye of the architect of his time.

JURIDICAL PROCESSING A courthouse is a well tuned instrument for the orderly and efficient processing of the trials. Security and privacy are essential to the functioning of a courthouse. Transparency is as well important social impact. Courthouse as well is a useful archive for cases where all the public, media and professionals could refer to as a final destiny. To support these wide range of facilities, the courthouse as well need to accommodate a good number of offices, from treasury to court clerk.

randomness

Randomness is a very general phenomenon. Everything in daily life consists of various degrees of randomness within it. Though seems to be chaotic, this randomness usually share some similarities behind them, which we could refer them as “structure� and randomness happens within it. Parametric design allows us to gain control over this structure. Theoretically, it would be possible to generate a parametric design able to describe architecture of certain type. In this method of design, sensitivity to where control could be exerted is essential. First, one can control over randomness within given structure. Second it is the control over the structure.

design concept

The design aims to generate a compact urban living environment without compromising sustainability. Bamboo clusters which are dense yet allow air to breeze through inspire the design in three main aspects: •Clusters of Apartment Towers (“tower”); •Mini Neighbourhood Formed by Clusters of Floors (“ring”); and •Landscaped Deck as Podium (“landscape”). Apartments form “towers” by themselves. 3 of them are connected to each other by the “ring” and sit on the landscape.

Wind comes from East to the site towards South throughout the year at relatively high speeds. In Micro Climate, the “towers” are arranged so that the space between apartments is adequate encourage to allow wind from different directions to pass through the site and into the city. In lure of future seaside development which would actually block the prevailing wind in the summer, the clusters of “towers” generally facilitates air passages from Various Directions. Furthermore most conventional residential towers do not allow cross ventilation as apartments are usually entered from double-loaded corridor. Apartment in this design are entered from Bridges linked to the central “ring” which acts as gathering space. This encourages residents to open windows facing the “ring” as well as the sea to and thus facilitates cross ventilation within individual apartment.

The design of the podium is shaped as a landscape to direct visitors from the podium of Hunghom Peninsula and footbridges towards the waterfront and the surrounding open spaces. The landscape is a open space more like a Public Park which they can enjoy the environment without blocked by the ubiquitous Privately Owned Public Space (POPS). Typical Plan 1.250

Podium is conventionally the condensation of all social programs, shops, recreational facilities, etc. but the towers are only solely for living , leaving the skygardens useless. Our design provides Community Decks at every five floors in the central tower. Some of the Decks are integrated with the sky gardens providing generous space for Social Encounters. Public open space
