The design of this project is inspired by the philosophy tendency: Object-oriented ontology. The module object starts from a subdivided cube, by rotating and scaling two diagonal corner to different directions, the formal language becomes very pronounced.
in collaboration with : Eiko Tsuchiya _ 2014 Spring
As much, as we have seen in the last 10 years, Embassies are increaseingly the target of political action and terrorism. The design is thus a political act as much as an architectural act. In case, we propose a new model for Embassy, one that exceeds, the feudal castle model. We propose that as a site of political unrest, an Embassy should engage rather than exclude the public.
Since the object has strong characters, by simply flipping it or changing the orientation, they create different interesting combinations. The final formal of the combination has one big object which is the same as the original one, connected with two other objects born from the original one.
Because the similar features they share, the joint from one to another creates very coherent relation between each other. The program of this project is a hybrid of 70% embassy office + 20% theater and 10% gallery.
