︎Food for Thought
  1. Pareidolia is the tendency for incorrect perception of a stimulus as an object, pattern or meaning known to the observer.... 
  2. Graduating at a time of unprecedented circumstances, my work has embraced a paradigm shift to the virtual dimension... exploring the possibilities of augmented reality

P.3_1. The Great Wall, Reimagined




June - August, 2018

Shanghai, China


Addressing the controversy of the Airbnb competition to spend a night at the Great Wall of China, the proposal aims to provide a unique experience of staying in a guest room pavilion adjacent to the southern segment of the wall in Taizhou City in Zhejiang Province, China. The inspiration behind the proposal are the Beacon Towers, or watchtowers, built every 2500 to 5000 meters throughout the wall to protect the empire. The pavilion, whether used as a guest room or tea room, is a glass structure surrounded by four undulating brick walls: a contemporary and deconstructed reinterpretations of traditional Beacon Tower masonry structures. The rippling patterns of the brick walls create a sense of movement while allowing daylight and artificial light to pass through. The dynamic lighting effects of the glass cube at night reference the fire and smoke signals during wartimes.
