1.‘X-Small’ Project Brief:
This proramme is....“ a celebration of the small, the compact, he unexpected little building we encounter in the land of cityscape that give us pause to ponder their meaning or that make us appreciate the elegence of their creation. from the spectrum of functions and styles of these structures, it is clear that size imposes no limits on creativity and utility is no constraint to beauty. thinking small can be a wonderfully constructive exercise - and it can even bring a little joy.”
Phyllis Richardson

2.Pigeon Coup Design Process:
During a period of ten weeks I was asked to design a small timber pavilion in the context of Glasgow. My idea came from the natural beauty of the spiral shape and wings of pigeon. At the beginning I made several inspirational sketches emonstrating the atmosphere of the pigeon coup (Fig.2&4), from which I then constructed the timber model at the scale of 1:100 (Fig.1&7). At the end, I drew technical plans and sections from the physical model with human and pigeon silhouettes as the scaling reference (Fig.3&4), and created several experimental digital models of the site and the design proposal (Fig. 5&6). As a consequence, my design was exhibited in the 2008 GSA Summer Degree Show and was published onto the school’s magazine, namely MAC MAG.
