ZHIYI Art Museum

This project explores the design approach of forming architectural space by contingency. The museum is the symbolic sculpture of the place since it is occupying a large site of the city and detached from the urban tissue. The autonomy revenges the old form-follows-function doctrine and allows for freedom of formation. The experiment starts from probing the prototype of architectural language by folding paper. Once the form has been selected, it could negotiate with the function arrangement. Thus the invisible intervention can bond each lateral elements of space into integrity.
