- Kengo Kuma’s The Exchange
Wireframe, Discretize, Emerging In The Exchange by Kengo Kuma, Ribbons of wood have spiraled around the internal mass, making a dynamic façade which hide and reveal the functional core at the same time. This, in my opinion, is how the wireframe approach can be the main approach in this project. Since discretization “means working on theContinue reading "Kengo Kuma’s The Exchange"

- PIER 55 PARK
Architect: Thomas Heatherwick Time: completed in 2021 Location: New York, US Displacement In my opinion, the most important key is “displacement”. The entire volume is formed by repeated arrangement of a unit. Shape These 55 huge piers can be regarded as deforming from an orignal proto type. Because of extrusion, they become different forms eventually.Continue reading "PIER 55 PARK"
