TRANSFORMATION

Academic Project    |    2018

Seminar Assignment at SCI-Arc

Instructor: Maxi Spina, Randy Jefferson

Partner: Juicheng Hung, KaiYing Lin, KaiYun Lei

This project of the seminar focus into re-originating the tectonic reality of the precedent’s distinctive form of articulation and/or means of producing apertures so as to study a novel set of formal, geometrical and technological associations. We constructed a problem-defining hypothesis with which to frame the re-origination of the envelope’s anatomy. Also, we tried to demonstrate how the focused redevelopment of the building’s outermost surface elements and sub-systems, together with an understanding of the constructive process from which those arise, can be systematically approached so as to re-inform the tectonic origins of the work without diminishing its performance.
