Sichuan, China, 2011

This project is based on the practice of deliberate geometry, its iterations and transformation from form to architecture with designated programs. We are asked to find a method to create a kind of module which can be  repeated in particular way by rotating, merging, folding and etc. The form must contain certain spatial character, such as barrier, compressed plain, threshold and so on. The spatial potential will be applied into a further villa design.The operation I researched is folding and intersecting. From the easiest way to make a continuous surface by folding, intersecting and shifting position. After making physic study model, the spatial and light quality can be showed. And this method can be used infinitely to create a iteration.As I known, there is a dramatic topography, which allow me to apply my from within a such altitude difference. At the same time, adjust surface to make sure the spaces inside have enough area holding programs. The form constituted by oblique panels also can weaken the difference between roof, floor and walls, as one single continuous architectural element.
