Description

TRC is a competition happened in summer of 2012-2013. The competition brief is taken and being developed later in the studio. The folding method is in respond to the site context which continued from outside into the internal space to achieve a high complete building experience. Local building codes, popularity flow and so on, which all determine the form of the building. The project site is located in Akihabara - a site that famous for its animation and electronic products. The intense advertisement and performing facade have been captured and used as my design inspiration. The windows on the facade aim to provide views for people inside the building, and those activities inside the buildings are transparent to outsiders which works as a billboard/advertisement.The folding building form draws it difference from its surrounding buildings which would also encourage people to visit. The ground floor is open as a plaza for people to walk through and access from the lane way next door. An after hour access is considered and placed throughout the building. The project is a replay center that contains Karaokay boxes, cinemas and retail shops.
