suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.
Jinming FENG: The project challenge the conventional urban design approaches, and specifically focuses on the traversal rationality between urban figure, field, ground, and network. The design scrutinizes several new and topical urban design approaches that blur figure-field relations via mathematically and digitally driven techniques.
By using both metric and non-metric geometries, the autonomous object and the ambiguous composite figures are produced and organized by the urban fields. It is a loose assemblage of objects that remains diverse while promoting variable forms of interconnectivity between unique urban elements.
