Entry Description

I hope that the result of my design is as simple as possible. I like the sense of power without verbosity. So I often restrain my design. The subtraction in space is not the purpose. The purpose is to convey feelings more directly. It's just like sketching is the easiest way to express ideas. How can a space have the power of a sketch when it is completed? I want to find that feeling.
Nowadays, modern citys are lively and prosperous gathering places, and our life needs not only convenience, but also peacefulness.I hope to retain this feeling of peace and quiet. We hope that the result of the construction will be like a page of paper on grass, clean, light and quiet.
I hope that the feeling here is transparent, plants around the building, sunshine can be sprinkled in, let people closer to nature, let people feel more calm. I hope that the lights here can better foil the quiet atmosphere, rather than simply illuminate the space. I hope that standing in front of the window at night and I can see the courtyard clearly with the lights on, as if the corridor is part of the courtyard, rather than the bright space cutting off the connection between the interior and the courtyard.
