  • Maximalism, Exuberance as an Architectural Technique.

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your Project.

    Andreas KOSTOPOULOS & Hayley WONG: A nightclub is situated in Hong Kong, in Victoria Harbour, in order to provide a range of experiences for different audiences based on their distance and degree of enclosure. Those viewing the nightclub from the tallest skyscrapers retain a generalized perception that is also altered by the building’s reflected image in the water, which remains unseen to those within the night club.

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Yoonsun HWANG & Lois SOO KYUNG SUH: Hydropolis provokes the existing typology of a skyscraper set in the densest metropolis: Hong Kong. Accumulating diverse attributes of the city at multiple economic and social scales and translations, the tower yields transforming facade, structure and circulation system, from intricate to ludicrous. The project challenges the aggressive attitude of land reclamation by embracing the harbor front as a crucial part of the project, operating closely with water.

  • Club Heat von Cool
    philadelphia PENNSYLVANIA

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    andrew TÉTRAULT & federica von EUW: Club Heat von Cool is an urban nightclub that was developed out of, and sought to become, a part of the intensive accumulation of atmospheres and scales present in one of the world’s most dynamic and culturally heterogeneous neighborhoods, Harajuku, Tokyo. The project became a morphology of varying systemic interiorities sequenced and transformed from the inside out to create a nightclub of sensations and effects. The interior transformation of the spaces occur through a breakdown of geometry that unfolds into a narrative of light, space, and materiality. Our club participates with the nuanced atmospheres of the city from the inside creating a building in dialogue and participation with the life and speed of Harajuku.

  • hyper ornamentation
    philadelphia PENNSYLVANIA

    suckerPUNCH: describe your project.

    johnny c. LIN: these works are inspired by the surface quality and the aesthetic of rococo church  and machine.  the study is to focus on the quality transformation from flat, soft to delicate, rough surface by integrating with mechanical joints and ornamentation.  the contrast between flat and delicate brings out each other’s identity and quality and also revealing the function.  by studying the rococo church, from a distance, the quality of the delicate surface brings out a very strong architectural space, and when approaching to the details, each unique figure is telling its own story.  the study is also focus on how each unique objects becoming seamless when grouping / attaching to others.
