Advanced Architecture Laboratory won First Prize in the Singapore Institute of Architects (SIA) Dhoby Ghaut Green Competition. The proposal for a temporary structure located at Dhoby Ghaut Green emerged from an in-depth study of site conditions including existing pedestrian networks, shading plants and urban views. The project analyzes daylight factors and structural displacements and uses computational simulations to define density requirements for the structure’s skin. A parametric model translates these requirements into an intricate geometric pattern of varying porosity, proposed as pre-fabricated, CNC-milled wooden panels.
A rapid-prototyped model of the award-winning project was exhibited 27 September – 13 October as part of Singapore’s 2013 Archifest.
