Dyv-Net Dynamic vertical networks in Tai Po, Hong Kong by JAPA architects

Sunday, July 21st, 2013

Article source: JAPA architects 

Since 2000, China’s cities have expanded at an average rate of 10% annually. Although China’s agricultural output is the largest in the world, only about 15% of its total land area can be cultivated. China’s arable land, which represents 10% of the total arable land in the world, supports over 20% of the world’s population. Of this approximately 1.4 million square kilometers of arable land, only about 1.2% (116,580 square kilometers) permanently supports crops and 525,800 square kilometers are irrigated. The land is divided into approximately 200 million households, with an average land allocation of just 0.65 hectares (1.6 acres)

Sunday, May 27th, 2012

Article source: Theo Texture

THE MOOD @ LKF located at the top of Lan Kwai Fong, is an 12-storey office building revamped into a boutique hotel, a new architectural genre for urban Hong Kong. A white aluminum cladded mask in organic cellular shapes over black glass is created at the lower part of the building, framed in LED lights. The name and the logo of the hotel are designed with two “O”s to correspond with this organic cellular motif which is repeated throughout the hotel. These cellular motifs and black and white colors are employed to echo the urban chic feel of the neighboring of Lan Kwai Fong, in and out of the building as well as in the graphics.

The Loop in Hong Kong by Theo Texture

Saturday, May 26th, 2012

Article source: Theo Texture

The LOOP is a 23-storey commercial building located in Central, Hong Kong, on a narrow rectangular-shape site. The design solution started out as a structural concept in response to the constraints of the site by running a folding floor slab from the bottom to the top of the building. When the building is view at its front façade, the edges of the folding slabs forms a “loop” shape, thus maximizing the glass frontage which is a full-height flushed window wall system. Cladded with white aluminum panels, this loop becomes the main feature of the building and the geometry is enhanced by a color-changing LED strip running along this loop.
