'Order / Disorder'
Academic Work 2016
Critic: Songkai Liu
The design of Site Dwelling is located on the cliff of the bay, in the village of Salir do Porto, Portugal. Salir do Porto has a number of significant landmarks within a prominent landscape; it is a place of great cultural heritage, and the design aims to preserve these historical significances and tries to make conversation with history. And I try to make a dwelling dynamic, it is not a traditional dwelling for daily life, it is a spiritual space for all the visitors who want to get a unique experience in a totally different way.
Thus, we plan to design a dwelling more than a dwelling, a building that can contain time and sceneries. And try to make the visitors to feel the dynamic views through different type of houses, althougn the functions a re separated, they are indivisible whole.
Experience the site in a dynamic way.
Peep - Observe - Glimpse - Gaze.
