REVIEW @ XUE XUE, Taipei // Prototype 1


On the second day in Taipei the five studios from Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Syracuse met at the Xue Xue Institute to take a tour then hold a speed review. The aim of the speed review was to allow the studios to share their approach and progress in tackling the design of a cultural complex on the Taipei Railway site. In preparing for the visit to Taipei the New York City studio prepared prototype 1 studies that were initial studies of applying the design models, which were created earlier on in the semester, to certain scales and program. The design models, which were driven through components and operations, had to take on specific programs at certain scales during this process to start speculating possible translations of the operations at hand. This step was necessary in understanding how the operations and components that had been studied during the design model process could accommodate specific conditions posed by the varying scales that would have to be applied on the Taipei Railway site. Below are the various speculations made by the NYC studio:
