Order of presentationMain Concept (Personal vs Public spaces, Dynamism and fluidity) Mock up (Visual description, scale, materials, construction) User Interaction and location Research and explorations (Initial mind map to final iteration)
On Week 10, we have presented three variation in different material combinations.
We have decided to use wood and metal as the material for the construction of the installation as it seems like the most economic, sustainable and feasible choice of building material out of the other two (Concrete and Polycarbonate).
The following illustration depicts our chosen conceptual form and interaction for our Read more →
For this week, we decided to re-design and re-proportion the shape of the installation. To inject more dynamism into the shape, we have changed the direction and distance of the curve by increasing the inclination and having an upward progression for the spaces between two surfaces. We can observe that the space between the ground and the first curve in the first direction Read more →
Further development on Form and Function of Installation
New developments such as the addition of a curved seating, curved shelves, curved ladder and safety railings have been updated in the most recent rendering of our installation. We have also refined on the proportions of the sculptural installation in the renderings for a more accurate depiction of the real thing.

Study into the Seville Roof
To begin, we would like to cite DETAIL inspiration on the webpage titled Technology: Metropol Parasol – a Stroll Above the Roofs of Seville written by Frank Kaltenbach.
The Metropol Parasol is described to be huge trees starting from the base of six pylons that extend upwards to merge and join to appear like “parasols” serving as Read more →
Simple, Fluid, Curvilinear
During this interim, we further developed the open ribbon form which we have decided on and researched further into possible construction methods.
Development of Form
In order to visualise the form in the natural environment, we thought about the scale of the form by multiplying it in the ratio of 1:50 (1=10cm).
Alongside deciding on the real scale of the installation, we came up with a few different Read more →
Recollecting our Idea
Our installation is inspired from the meaning of Nan yang; derived from the Southern Sea. We want to develop awareness on the school’s heritage by making reference to the origin of the school’s name, represented by a form that is both fluid and dynamic; combining private and public spaces in a seamless transition in a single installation to encourage people in NTU to interact with the Read more →
We decided to work on Concept 1 (lighter form) to further explore on mass and void in a fluid structure to be placed in a public space in NTU.
To be more specific with our selection of space in NTU, we thought of incorporating our installation within a natural space to achieve a balance between architectural installation and nature.
Also, we want to Read more →
