Instructor: Brian Lee
Name: NEW TWISTED MUSEUM
Team: Wanpeng Zu, Zichang Yan, Jun Seong Ahn, Dissa Raras
The New Twisted Museum is a building that integrates both the existing structure of the building and newly applied facade and transforming into a parametric structure. Not only preserving the museum flow inside the boxes, but also creating a new pedestrian movement along the twisted structure will be able to provide additional walkway and evacuation for future purposes.
The parametric facade is shaped in diamonds which the dimension and the size of each diamond holes will change based on the location in terms of height. The lower floor such as the ground floor will have smaller holes and diamonds in order to maintain its stiffness and structural load. And the size of those gradually increases and naturally merge with the initial box volume.
This kind of transformation gives users to experience in different environment with engaging with indoor and outdoor.
