ECOLOGY I: IDEA RENDERING
HKU FALL 2018 DESIGN STUDIO


Studio Folio


This studio explores the function of environment in rendering architectural ideas. The natural environment of sub-tropical Hong Kong is ambiguous and even imprecise; its diffused sunlight, blurred shadows, densely humid air and layered greenery are all parts of an overlap of mixed dynamics, leading to a wide array of unregistered techniques, different and simultaneous sense of time, and diverse subjective journeys. A qualitative technique of measurement and design for the making of architecture in such environmental conditions will be the focus of our studio. The goal is to explore how environment can amplify architectural ideas through the interaction between atmosphere (quality of place) and tectonics (ways of making). After all, nature is unintentional; artifacts are not.
