Cloud, Forest and wind

Location: Yilan, Taiwan
Status: Proposal
Program: 
Exhibition Design 
Design Team: WAO Architects
Project Designers: Che-Kuang Chuang


An exhibition design project at Chung Hsing Cultural And Creative Park. Based on the concept of the local symbolic icons of Yilan such as local forest, deep blue sky and windy weather. Just try to transform all these natrual elements into concrete geometries and apply them into the interior and exhibition design.


The Temple of Hilma

Location: Finland
Status: Proposal
Program: Museum
Design Team: WAO Architects
Principal Architect: Chi-Cheng Lee
Project Designers: Che-Kuang Chuang


Hilma af Klint was considered as the pioneer of abstract arts and her abstract works had been placed years ahead of artists like Kandinsky and Mondrain who traditionally seen as the pioneers of abstraction. In this proposal of the Temple of Hilma, we try to extract the unique geometrical compositions from her works and through the series of transformation, try to apply it into the spatial layout of the scheme.
At the beginning it is started from three simple circles which can be seen in her painting as kind of symbols or signs. Through transforming the radius of the circles, the geometry has been intersected with each other, and comes out some interesting spaces in between. Once it extrudes from the 2d drawing and transforms the volume from 2d object into 3d object, the scheme has become the fundamental spatial-unit of the Temple of Hilma.
The spatial-units play the role as the major structure of the scheme. The concrete tubes are designed with the heavy-walls to bear the loads. Through this structure system, the interior becomes one fluent space which has no isolation and meanwhile, the spatial units also play the significant property of the space. They could be part of the gallery spaces that not only provide the oriented circulation, but also shape the space with her unique sense in geometry.
Through this series of geometrical manipulation and application, eventually this scheme presents the unique characteristic of her abstract arts and manifests itself as a new landmark of the surrounding.







The Amoeba House Installation Design

Design Team: WAO Architect, Taiwan
Principal Architect: Chi-Cheng Lee
Designers: Che-Kaung Chuang, Lun Huang
Collaborators: Render Studio
Status: Finished
Location: Taipei, Taiwan.
Program: Installation /Exhibition Design

This installation is the final output of our proposal of Amoeba House, an adaptive housing system which can be transformed based on different requirements of the users in different life stages, meanwhile still keeps their favorite spatial property during the remodeling procedure. In Amoeba House project we develop series of spatial units which can be move and remodeled. The users can choose units to compose their dreaming house based on what they need. Outside of units is a transformable skin which would be transformed by KUGA based on the collected data from smart sensor. In this installation, we use a couple micro spatial model to represent the future room of family members, and while the users move or touch the models, the computers will automatically connect the room and calculate the volume of the space.


The Landscape Coffee Table Design

Let's take a look about how I apply chinese Shan-shui
into furnirue design and how it becomes the landscape of interior.


Spatial Science- Geometries Studies

Spatial Science- Geometries Studies, series of geometries and media experiments.


The Bracket Cabinet Design

In this Project, I tried to apply the Chinese traditional architectural component- wooden bracket into furniture design. The unique structural behavior of wooden bracket is perferct for the force distribution of the cabinet meamwhile also create awesome visuality for the entity of the product.
