Graduates 2018: Ting-Chiao Joyce Chang: 3D Design and Craft

My project begins with visiting traditional architecture in Taiwan.

I am inspired by the material used and the style developed in the culture, and it leads into creating a project that positions red clay material, which has historical and cultural meaning in traditional Taiwanese architecture, into an artistic interpretation and modern representation.

The Craft in Architecture

Traditional Taiwanese architecture represents a combination of craftsmanship and is a record of how people live during the time. As society structure altered, the cultural aesthetics and historical stories lost its way in our modern life, substituted by concrete buildings and skyscrapers.This projectevaluates cultural architecture under several directions, and positions the study of form and red clay material in consideration with vernacular language and modern context. The construction of each form is accomplished by calibrated processes and accuracy, and the wall pieces presents a picture that captures the visual representation overlooking the original location.
