UMBRELLA

Nor, Toni, Ava, Roger, QD

We create an umbrella cover above the swimming pool. The sunlight will go through the negative space on the water surface, floor and wall at different times everyday. It reduces the ultraviolet rays and lets the light go inside at the same time. There are two parts of this umbrella go into the water and separate the swimming pool into three channels. The large umbrella has a strong contrast with the house on the side. It is more opaque and smooth and the house is transition and geometrical. The material of the umbrella is white acrylic and connected by gray acrylic.

CONCEPT – CHILDREN’S DOME

“Our design is a large-scale-installation, divided into two parts. The first part is indoors, mainly to create a play area for kids. The lower domes are mainly for children, they can easily enter and exit while adults need to lean over. The higher domes are for every guest. There are many openings in different sizes on the installation to ensure that the adult ’s sight is not blocked. Even if the parents do not enter and be with there kids, they can still see them to ensure safety. The second part is above the swimming pool, blocking the dazzling sunlight on the premise of ensuring the scenery of the swimming pool. Both parts of the installation are supported by rotating pillars, and the color of the dome is pink gradient blue from low to high. ”

Soft roof

Team: Lena Han, Kaiwei Xiong, Bei Liu, Josh Chen

Concept

Mies’ Barcelona pavilion is a symbol of simplified, elegant architecture. Instead of rooms, it is more like an assemble of a couple planar surface in horizontal and vertical direction. It breaks down the elements of architecture and reassembled it into a couple thresholds. If you look from the sky, you see two roof sitting on top of walls, and they are being placed at the two opposite directions of the courtyard in the middle.

The “soft root” canopy is to add a slice of playful element, but still be consistent with the tone of the Barcelona pavilion. The canopy connects those two roofs separated by the courtyard, providing shading area for people in the summer. The canopy in anchored at four corner points, one of which is lifted up by a pole so it the overall height of the canopy is increased.

It makes the whole space uplifting, playful and romantic when the shadow projects on the floor and walls.
