Glass for A Blind Child

Posted on Categories architecture, selected worksTags , ,

This is the last competition we participated and lost in 2015. The competition has been sponsored by a glass company for the past decades, many topics therefore were closely connected with glass. This year is the 50 year anniversary, they made a anniversary-feeling topic — “the glass”, asking participants rethink the role of glass in architecture.

Granted Calendar

Posted on Categories selected works, productTags , , , ,

People write plans on calendar. That’s why many calendars leave space for writing. But it’s boring. That’s why you only do it on the first 2-3 days every year:

1 January: Change myself this year
2 January: Must write down my plan everyday

A horror story: Imagine you are 100 years old and you take out 100(-6) different looking calendars and found the same thing written on the same place, while the rest were left empty.

Bach Shop

Posted on Categories interiorTags , , , , , ,

We met Bach when we were about to leave Milan in October last year. We were selling our no-need-anymore stuffs. She came to our place to take a tent in a morning. We talked a little while and agreed to arrange another time to talk longer. She then went on her one day trip to somewhere. We soon left Milan, into the mountain.

Several months later, we were told that she had got a place in Corso Porta Ticinese in Milan, an undoubted popular spot pretty near city center. It was a great step forward for Bach from running online business to having a real shop in such a place. We were quite happy when she asked us to be her consultants on interior design. Moreover, Mi, who studied industrial design in school and works in a famous Milanese styling company joined us.

Composed by Bach (interactive design), Bach’s boyfriend Yuan (automobile design), Mi (product & styling design) and we two (architecture), a multi-disciplined team was formed.

In limited time of site survey, architects collect information by observing, taking notes, sketching, photographing, taking video, talking to locals etc.. When they are back in office, they make sense out of them, giving birth to report, diagram and site model. By then, the whole team can get a good understanding of the site especially by look at the site model talking about the site, away from site.
