Topic Studio: Pretty Boxes
Fall 2016 | Instructor: Yaohua Wang
The project started with the notion of the box and the labyrinth with one path going through the entire object. The form for the civic center in Ryde, Australia is thus derived from the box with discrete "objects" containing main programmatic elements for the civic and performance functions. The skin aims to follow the same logic as the labyrinth; it wraps and turns against the programmatic "object" and circulation tubes which go through the entire project.
