ARCH2072 – 2017 Fall: “(CAR)PARK REGENERATION”

Star​ ​Ferry​ ​Car​ ​Park​ ​is​ ​a​ ​simple,​ ​mid-sized​ ​urban​ ​infrastructure located​ ​on​ ​the​ ​Central​ ​waterfront it has rich​ ​history​ ​and​ ​relation​ ​to​ ​its​ ​surroundings.​ ​​ ​As​ ​a​ ​piece​ ​of​ ​architecture,​ ​it​ ​is​ ​characterized​ ​by​ ​its​ ​“openness”​ ​and “resilience.”

First,​ ​we​ ​will​ ​make​ ​a​ ​rigorous​ ​observation​ ​of​ ​the​ ​car​ ​park​ ​through​ ​a​ ​set​ ​of​ ​measured​ ​architectural​ ​drawings.​ ​This will​ ​become​ ​a​ ​shared​ ​base​ ​material​ ​for​ ​us​ ​to​ ​discuss​ ​and​ ​learn​ ​how​ ​to​ ​observe​ ​and​ ​describe​ ​architecture​ ​graphically. We will then​ ​further​ ​identify​ ​and​ ​scrutinize​ ​different​ ​architectural​ ​aspects​ ​of​ ​the​ ​initial​ ​findings​ ​under​ ​the framework​ ​of​ ​​Ecologies-Sustainability-Regeneration.​ ​​Gradually,​ ​students​ ​will​ ​need​ ​to​ ​discover​ ​and​ ​transcribe myriads​ ​of​ ​ecological​ ​relations​ ​that​ ​exists​ ​within​ ​this​ ​system​ ​of​ ​architecture.​ ​
This​ ​will​ ​inform​ ​the​ ​precise​ ​nature​ ​of their​ ​final​ ​design​ ​proposal,​ ​which​ ​is​ ​a​ ​regenerative​ ​use​ ​of​ ​the​ ​structure​ ​as​ ​another​ ​kind​ ​of​ ​“park”​ ​space.

The studio is articulated between investigations, experimentations, iterations, discussions, thoses images represent fragments of this continuous discovery.
