Date:  Sep 2017 - Nov 2017

Cluster:  Architecture

Work Type: Collaborative

Co-Worker: Wang Shuaizhong; Shen Kewei

This was a research project and design done during an exchange period at Tokyo Institute of Technology. One of Japan's most important architectural theorists, Kazuo Shinohara left behind his famous theory of the four styles and a draft of the fifth style during his lifetime. The design proposes a reflection on the possibilities of the fifth style by delving into the relationship between the four styles, and expresses this reflection in the form of a house. This part was published in a study of Kazuo Shinohara at Tokyo Institute of Technology.
