Over the past twenty years Lille has become a European hub; a destination for business and congress, a great place to study and live and also a tourist destination. It is a city with a turbulent history of conquest and reconquest, a heritage as an important medieval city and later the industrial capital. It is this history, the unique and striking presence of remnants of ramparts of the citadel, which the project seeks to mention.

This project was submitted to an open call for proposals for Pod Art installations at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival. Our proposal sought to create a reprieve from the visual stimulation present at the annual Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Manchester, Tennessee. The installation provided a spatially interactive experience – one which can be simultaneously viewed and occupied. A 30′ x 30′ gridded field of 1 1/2″ diameter bamboo poles defined the installation while selectively removed zones created privacy and enclosure within an otherwise vast, undefined 600+ acre event. The tight placement of poles also provided dappled shade projecting into internal spaces located within the gridded field. Ultimately, This dense bamboo grid created an inhabitable thicket to be experienced and explored by the festivalgoer.

Erie Street Plaza is a small urban plaza in the Historic Third Ward district of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The 13,000-square-foot plaza lies at the point where the Milwaukee River meets the Federal Channel as it empties into Lake Michigan. It is the final link in a series of public space activators along the Milwaukee Riverwalk, a three-mile pedestrian and bicycle corridor that connects downtown Milwaukee to the emerging and redeveloping Third Ward, Beerline Districts, and the lakefront beyond.

Encrusted in a row of narrow geminate houses, the story began more as a challenge rather than as an architectural project. How make the entire program of a house fit in that 4x30m lot, relying on a few illuminated surfaces?

Stemming from the enriching life cycle of the organic plant, an inspiring design is proposed for a Taiwan Tower competition.
This natural concept embodies the very essence of the ecosystem within we coexist with, by mimicking the stable and collaborative harmony between trees roots and trunk system anchor and support the entire core of the building. Integrated with intelligent systems, this concept attracts the natural energy of nature and reinvents Cybertecture technology to produce a tower that is remarkable and extraordinary for people to work, visit and take pride in.

“Forest of Art”
We proposed a place where a park, facilities and the around environment are mixing together like a forest for Ichiharashi-sui & Choukoku no Oka. The existing building at the site would be renovated to enhance the beautiful scenery of the park in front of the structure. Inside and outside, old and new would be harmonized as one space at the place. The condition could be explained as café ore, which is keeping a taste of coffee and milk, but also create a new taste as café ore.

This project sets out not to create one park, but many great parks. Given the shear scale of the project the idea is not to create a singular grand vision, but to create a framework for thinking about the idea of a park that is intrinsically related to how to successfully implement the park over time. In reality, most parks are composed of a series of separate spaces that are somehow bound together. This design embraces that reality and showcases it. This diverse set of spaces combined with the four binding elements, shown raw, gives the park its distinct identity.
