  • Preliminary Research Office, "Bulging Wall(s): Bauhaus Museum Dessau." Worm's-eye axonometric drawing. (Building as a bulging wall on site, two bulging walls to generate interior space.)
    new york NEW YORK

    In this proposal, we firstly focus on the study of the independent architectural objects, including the stairs, ramp and rooms which wrap up different programs inside. These objects are placed along the wall in a panoramic sequence to emphasize the dynamism among them, simultaneously thematize their clear yet unconventional relationships.

  • Beijing House II
    los angeles CALIFORNIA

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    yaohua WANG: During the modernization of Beijing, except for some historical houses, independent housing typology was almost eliminated. Afterwards, the new model became huge, stacking commercial residential buildings.

    Thus, with the support of the client, project Beijing House II is trying to seek new methods of bringing the independent housing typology back to Beijing’s contemporary city life. This design scheme adds a new house onto the exterior of an obsolete factory building. Inside the house there are bedrooms, a studio and a green room. By doing this, the design uses the empty city space in the air and rediscovers the typology of independent housing in Beijing city.

  • Latent City
    los angeles CALIFORNIA

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project:

    yW: Firstly, for me what is the dream of architecture? And, how could this dream happen?

    IN SHORT, my dream is ‘against’. Architecture against capital rules. Architecture IS against constraints. Architecture IS against the people who have the real power but are doing things which they know are not good, but still do it because it can bring them more profit. This attitude of ‘against’ is my dream and the idea of a city with no dead end is just one tangible instance of this attitude in a very specific social context. and then How can you be ‘against’ the knife if you are just the fish on a chopping board ? You must be ‘against’ it wisely, and that means sometimes you should be a little slippery. and well prepared.

    suckerPUNCH: describe your project.

    yaohua WANG, scott CHUNG + brian FRAUMENI: the program is a subway terminal and park. this studio, a belated exercise in fleshlogy- “becoming-animal” is not about the mimetic career of biology into and onto architecture, but of the transference of multiple physiologic scales into the systemic intelligence of the involute surface-dwelling, and back again. the ocular nerve of the owl, the locomotion of the giant jellyfish, the pack logistics of the rat(s), the program of the frog, are not just forms, organic symmetries and baroque geometries. they are machines, they are solutions, partial grammars to take shape of us and we of them.
