This project explores landscape formation under the influence of capillary motion – the ability of a liquid substance to flow in narrow spaces without the assistance of external forces including the gravity. Such motion of water occurs naturally when surface and subterranean water fill in tiny cracks of soil. The design intent is to transpose this principle into the formative strategy at another scale, by employing movement of water in creating a network of canals with dual purpose. At first water will rinse the soil of contaminated matter; and subsequently newly created of network canals will become […]

The building was initiated by the nature of the sponge, which refers to and reflects fundamental changes in operating environment caused by implication of new working practices, and gives consideration to the changing needs of the architecture. Porosity, as the main feature of the sponge, it is translated into a series of activities which allow different ways to connect multiple partition space. Represented activities: reading room with books, multimedia, workshops, meetings, relaxation zone, and other. Considering the complexity of the geometry, the final outcome are union of a “body” specific curvature, closed, not conditionally, in the working […]
