Tectonic Boundaries

Type: MA Design Studio
Name: Responsive Structures
Year: Fall 2021
Supervisor: Eike Schling, Geraldine Borio
Office: The University of Hong Kong, Department of Architecture

Located on the threshold between the city and the hillside, the challenge will be to propose an architectural structure responsive to place, climate, culture and materiality that enables an enrich appreciation of nature while reducing the negative impact onto the site. We will consider the built structure as a framework that adapts to the existing qualities of the place and produces new behaviour. Activities enabling social gathering will take place within, above, under and besides the structure and help us to interrogate the traditional boundaries between the natural and artificial world. We attempt to find innovative solutions for how our intervention touch, span and transform the site, based on their structural behaviour and materiality.
