Group EOI 1. Generation and Transformation of Pattern

Group EOI 2. Creating dialogues with its environment Design can achieve so through reflecting it site-context What to Reflect? Urban Form: The distribution of vegetation . The significance of the site as transportation joint.

How to Join those layers of information? eg. Datascap

Group EOI 3. Dynamic architecture Dynamic form is a three dimensional work that conveys an illusion of movement and change. According to my understanding, it includes 2 aspects, which are its dynamic outline/shape and its inherent visual transformation. An dynamic shape often contains flow lines and irregular space distribution. E.g.1&2 Visual transformations are always carried out by varies angles that form between surfaces, i.e. viewpoint alteration. E.g.3

Case study Shadow – Play with sunlight

By laying each one of the bricks at the desired angle and intervals allows to create a pattern that covers the entire building façade. According to the angle at which they are set, the individual bricks each reflect light differently and this takes on different degree of light.

Case study Dynamic experience Every brick forms a certain degree with the vertical panel and its degree causes the variable shadow. View from distance, the minishadow and the reflect of sunlight together forms a "grape" patternthe chief resource of vineyard. Along with the sunlight movement or change of viewpoint, the mini-shadow changes, thus the static wall have dynamic pattern.

4. Fabricate and installation

ENERGY EFFICIENCY has been a major focus of design and construction •Digital design-better controlling process and increasing the precision from design stage to manufacture stage •Large component Break into small units •Minimizes energy and material wastetypical to site construction. •Future re-use of the building without typical demolition and disposal waste of materials. •Less impact to local environment
