Hot-Cold Transition Workshop Course Brief
HCT workshop focuses on designing a performative component system that reacts to environmental condition. HCT workshop considers building site as a hot-cold transition field with the hot pole on the south and cold pole on the north, which serves as the initial driver of component differentiation. Students in each sub-group (7-8 students each) will be guided to design a parametric component system to populate a given building form (provided on the workshop). This parametric component system shall not only be self-supporting, but also exhibit high level flexibility in terms of locally controlling solar radiation, natural ventilation and other design considerations that are derived from the Hot-Cold transition field. Besides, it shall be designed to accommodate different hot-cold temperature span, so as to study the application of such parametric system at different temperature zones.
As output of the HCT workshop, each group is required to produce a physical scale model for a portion of their designed component system, as well as one A1 poster. During the workshop, students will be taught to operate the laser cutter at Protospace Lab, and get familiar with relevant material and fabrication constraints of this particular production method. This knowledge will, in turn, affects their design formation and presentation strategy.&nb
