Systemic Sections

The International Center for Advanced Renewable Energy Research (ICARES) Labs is proposed to be located in New Orleans, LA. This project began with exploring a geometric order of an organic natural pattern and its response to the climate change. Lichens were selected because of their interesting biomorphic forms, rich sectional quality and flexible mechanism in …

Flexible Wire Net

Flexible Wire Net

As part of the core studio 318 tracks, the project of Flexible Wire Net was inspired by the open/closed capability of lichens. Each module was composed of four 3D wire frames, made from piano wires, bent and connected with each other in a specific geometric order by silver beads. The wire frames held each other …

Material Organization

Material Organization

The Material Organization project was to explore a geometric field created by pieces of modules with only physical connections allowed. Cut and folded by paper, each module was designed to split in both ends and locked with other pieces of modules. As a result, the field grew like a tree and the flexible physical connection …
