VOVA Lamp


  Organizer: Google + i-Materialise Location: Bridge for Emerging Contemproary Art – NM, USA Status: Competition Win + Completed 2010 Responsibilities: Digital Design and Visualization Fabrication: Materialise VOVA_Lamp_Description: The initial driving mission of the VOVA Lamp was to push the boundaries of the selective laser sintering 3D printing technology. This allowed the VOVA lamp’s concept to be feasibly driven and developed using a minimal surface tiling algorithm optimizing the object’s form and the lamp’s function. Once a base module was formulated, the geometry was tiled radially 10 times and resulted in a continuous flow of material. The design, shadow, and […]

Superstar: A Mobile China Town


Firm – MAD 2008 Location – Venice, Italy – 11th International Architecture Biennale Venice Typology – Urban Concept Status – Concept Design on traveling exhibition Responsibilities – Project Management, Concept Design, 3D Modeling, Fabrication, Rendering Along with shopping malls, petrol stations and branches of McDonalds, the old Chinatown renders all cities boring and alike. It is nothing more than restaurant streets and fake traditional buildings, representing a kitsch image of contemporary China with no real life inside. It is a historical theme park that poisons the urban space. There must be a shock therapy to remedy this situation. Superstar: A Mobile China […]

Huangdu Art Center


Year 2008 Location Beijing, China Typology Art Gallery, Hotel Site Area 6,300 sqm Building Area 46,000sqm Status Design in-progress Responsibilities – Project Management, Concept Design, Diagrams, Rendering, 3D Modeling Old Beijing is composed of Hutongs, closely woven districts of communal courtyard homes. The basic elements of these districts are one-storey buildings, that, repeated at dense scales, result in unique geometric patterns. However, this traditional urban fabric is increasingly under threat as entire neighborhoods are forced to make way for the larger, monumental modern architecture of Beijing today. The site of this project presents this issue in microcosm. Located near the heart […]
