This project with Jrgang Chi, Jon Blistan, and others is a wood-shop for the school of architecture at Tamkang University (Taipei) where Jrgang is teaching this year. If all goes according to plan, a final version will be constructed next spring. Since the site is very small, our goal was to design a dynamic architecture that can operate under four conditions; WORK, THINK, LEARN, PLAY (thinking in verbs).
WORK: the "normal" wood-shop condition.
THINK: down time, break, sitting, reading, relaxing
LEARN: review time, students present their work, listen to others presenting, Professors critiqe
PLAY: party time, festival, end of the semester
