Final Project - Architecture and Ecology
To me, ecology implies a dynamic system controlling all living species and their physical environments. And architecture should be a component of a more heterarchical system that regulating the balance between human and non-human species. Architecture design is not seen as a process that stresses human power but as a set of intellectual and social practices towards a more symbiotic and sustainable future. The three-semester post-professional program (M.S.AAD) has introduced multiple perspectives linking architecture and ecology. The studios and elective courses have built up a framework between ecology and architecture in five dimensions: waste, material, data visualization, structure, and Climaticism. At the same time, I think architecture should be designed not only scientifically but also aesthetically. So I was also trying to achieve a sense of beauty and interactive experiences from the ideas of waste reusing, material discourse, data visualization and projection, structural optimization, and climatic design.
