Brief description of the project

In this project, I aim to design a school of architecture located on the east edge of the university campus as an extension of the original architecture department. My concept is regarding buildings as a living species and endowed with movement inside. Influenced by the sculptures from Richard Serra, I explore the plan with adjacent walls stack with each other; forming the path guiding people along the building while simultaneously dividing the space into different functional areas. Similar to that of a fish, swimming inside the university campus.
