Art and Science in Architecture
We gave a lecture and two media interviews through HKTDC and SmartHK. We focused on architecture that combines art and science. We believe all aesthetics decisions can be boiled down to objective decision. Throughout our design process, we communicate with our clients regarding what is feasible. From there, we will try to push the envelop to achieve design that has never been done before. We studied location, weather and culture to identify the appropriate technology for the building. Once we get the right approach, we use the science behind to drive the form making. For instance, the curved facade on our villa design was a direct result of the ventilation system we chose. The form is no longer about the appearance but rather a requirement for the integrated system. This process will not only generate an iconic form that are meaningful and useful, it will also increases the building’s real estate value.
