Harlem Mart 125
Nomination, H.I. Feldman Prize
Water is the most political issue in the world, although the essence itself is neutral. The problem of the public comprehension of all the issues related to water is its pliable and formless character. The form of water is on various scales. It could be comprehended if only the observer is brought to different scales.
The form of the pavilion follows the form of water in different scales. In the middle of the public level are embedded three apparatus of water transformation phenomena. The microscale scenery is hence recorded and projected to the three pavilions on top of the exhibition level. It’s a water park. But as a wanderer you travel much afar.
School of Architecture for Penn Design
The project is at the site of the current PennDesign building at the northeast corner of the campus quad. The diagonal road cutting the quad stretches ten blocks and links several open spaces in the city. The new building proposes an open plaza at the north end of the site and creates a node for the diagonal path.
The building is piled with five courtyard strips that are coordinated with each other and create a variety of spaces. The façade of the building creates a half-tone screen between the interior and exterior of the building.
Architectural Design: New Haven Test
This tiny house claims ownership of the whole site. The concept of the house is to organize the activities of daily life on an invisible spiral; placing toilet, shower and bed in the middle, while dining and recreations go along the outer surface. There are two rules organizing the form that define the dimensions of each layer in plan and section. Yards and rooms are equal to this rule and are arranged in this lot as a whole system of living space. But still the layers help to diminish all the rules and shape the experience of the space as an ever-changing process.
