class: 2022 spring VT first year foundation lab
instructor: Nero Chenxuan He

We are re-making new projects with building chunks sampled from the local Virginia Tech Blacksburg campus. Understanding the waste and pollution from architecture construction and deconstruction, the studio is trying to find a position to create upcycle design with documentation and reconfiguration through a design and management process...

class: 2021 fall VT architecture seminar automavision I : the depth of frustums
instructor: Nero Chenxuan He

Students are asked to resee one existed architectural product with a designed automavision workflow to create an archive of spatial segments, then take a curatorial role to upcycle by layering up visual information with techniques in cinematography...

It is a piece of steak. It has been taken apart following a digital template and then put back together. It is serviced on a Chinese porcelain plate with one clove of fried garlic and fresh rosemary. Oh, there is also a Pantone color card for color reference. It is textured with marble and cloth. It grows like a plant. It is a piece of steak...

competition: Basel Pavillion 2022
location: Basel Switzerland
collaborator: Kaiho Yu
status: Unsuccessful

The proposal will covert the recycled material into multiple piles of synthetic material chunks. By collecting the abandoned building components from the area of Basel, the pavilion will illustrate how we can reinvent the material properties with a series of workflows. A pavilion constructed for play and leisure will be a medium to transit the idea for a new circular strategy for local recyclable material...

'Speculative Design' is a series of roundtable seminars that discusses the meaning, impact, and applications of speculation in design. Speculation in finance is an anticipatory action taken to minimise options of the opponent, where information feedback is used to project multiple futures for purposes of decision-making in maximising gain...

A digital camera with visualized frustum can be the mold to reshape "the form that matters". This study is responding to an ongoing topic of understanding computer software and hardware limitation. The form can be optimized by how it will be viewed. This workflow is designed with the idea of misusing given tools and becomes a guideline for an architecture seminar at Virginia Tech in the 2021 Fall semester "Automavision I: The Depth of Frustums"...

There is not a composer or a conductor but a system outside of myself created this film presentation. the environment is very inscrutable but the camera makes me being in the situation I never put myself into. And us human, can poetized with our cultural background and experiences but not rationalize it. The cameras become a quasi-evaluation tool to unraveling the spatial cemetic. This project is also a realization that we very much started at the middle of the architecture with a lot of given information, so focusing on how to resee and recombine seems rational...

Architects ████████████ impose ideas on the design of a home. We are proposing an alternative, less political process that taps into the subconscious of the mind and bypasses traditional approaches of home design. █████ we can find how lifestyle influences one's subconscious and translates into architecture. We are not aiming to solve the homelessness problem, but instead to study this as a methodology of home design...
