Type: Perspective, Land, Materials, Program


Description:

Based on the movement of the recycling process and the contrast of programming, the opposite between the stereotomic and tectonic of materiality, the term of “in and out, up and down” of circulation, and the feeling of a giant lifted building on smaller basement buildings. The idea of alternating is applied to all the aspects of the project. Since designing on the dirt of the industrial site but still satisfy the unique and visual value for the project by utilizing the aesthetic of exposed structure from inside and outside experience as not only an supportive element but provide the interest to visitors.
