Urban Palette

High Bridge Building Cultural Infrastructure Competition

This project aims to create an art center that functions as the connector of the various aspects of the site. Strategically, the required program is distributed into smaller building blocks which flows through the dense forest of trees as well as vertically layered to overcome the steep river bank. The various exterior and interior spaces that are created by this massing strategy interacts and intervenes together to formulate an organic atmosphere. The ‘palette’ that links the scattered program blocks becomes a platform to grow crops and vegetation, to store water, and to be used as a public plaza.
