Concrete columns with large cutting surfaces, bookcases in the loft, the air bridge and catwalk across the bookcases, and the elements of vast cosmos, Fangsuo Bookstore represented the image of “Secrete Scripture Library”. It seems all the knowledge in the world are stored in the bookstore and waiting to be discovered. Within the bookstore people can always find spaces to nuzzle down and read a book, which represent the lifestyle of Sichuan people.
“Composed heart & profound thoughts with far-reaching ambitions”. We could truly feel the space with traditional oriental culture and zeitgeist, not only from the concept or the performance which apply traditional essence of eastern culture but also develop and promotes eastern living philosophy and modern design spirit with natural harmony between people and living spaces which are inheritance and even more sublimation.
Experimental typographic project that combines the reflection on a mirror with paper letters cut by one of its axis. It results in modular compositions that once photographed suggest 3D images. The project uses magic and visual contradiction to transit from digital language to analog world. Construction of letters on a mirror creates new realities with reflection, which are neither truth nor falsehood.
Topology is a series of black & white hand sketches by Huang Zi (the artist) that explores the imaginative topography of various landscapes and people's relationships with them. Because on every inch of every terrain, there is life. It is a diary of sorts to capture the stories of his various travels to faraway places. Documenting journeys through an artistic rendition is a historical way to celebrate the places that others call home. Huang Zi is bringing this art form to the digital age via an online gallery and social media.
One Main is an office refurbishment that relentlessly deploys numeric command machining of sustainable plywood to evidence the versatility and efficiency available via CAD-CAM design-build processes. The project displaces the combinatorial logic of ready-made components typical of late-industrial process for a seamless and non-standard protocol of customized fabrication. A formal aesthetic emerges from these processes, imbuing the design with a curvilinear continuity at a detail and spatial level.
The whole device consists of 30 main bone models and 3 groups of large-radian curves. Through multiple layers of woven and criss-cross transparent films, an interface of dynamic tension was folded up, with the whole space filled with flowing dynamic. Between blends and conflicts, there would come into being various function spaces, such as entrance, wall, ceiling, window, desktop or seat area. Multi-layer open combinations are the new representation and interpretation of internal and external open sites that interact both inside and outside.
