Rhythm of Light Public Service Center

INSPIRATION:
The project aims to integrate nature elements into a workable composition. The fish-scale-like exterior design is composed of the repeating and overlapping blocks. The sunshine sifts through those gaps among “the scales.” Together, the sunlight and shade create various expressions in a day. Tree, is another nature subject in interior. The linear wooden patterns and the tree stem/section textures are applied as their unique color schemes and textures are aesthetically appealing.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
For the exterior, multiple perspectives and incisions have been strewn across the facade. The sides have been fashioned into a series of continuous and three-dimensional edges to create an engaging effect of overlapping blocks. Upon entry, one is greeted by an assemblage of cut sheets of wooden elements stretching across the ceilings and flowing down the sides with the illumination fixtures, creating a flowing aesthetic language of lines weaving a dynamically visual sensation.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The project servers a place in which visitors can understand more in the new housing development. With the visually three-dimensional space design, people would yearn for a better style of living with aesthetics and functionality.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
In order to soften the stiffness of architecture outer transportation, the façade resembles a weaving consisting of fabric or rattan patterns which were transformed into isometric porous structures. Meanwhile, it allows skylight to seep through the porous wall and creates a dramatic rhythm of light and shadow.

CHALLENGE:
The architecture must be friendly to the community and blend into the environment, and to avoid disrupting the carwash business downstairs. Therefore, the site was raised. The structure was inspired by nature (Biomimics), and so bold presentations simulating nature are ubiquitous. Its outside resembles a weaving consisting of fabric or rattan transforming into isometric protective structures to soften the stiffness of architecture and create skylights.
