Media Center Y

Entry Description

This ?Media Center Y? project is about understanding of an existing fabric cultural heritage and architecture, embedded into a static context, creating a landmark media center that will give new definitions to a public plaza.

Uniting the ground and architecture with an axial pattern of Macau, together with the activity-inducing-media-skin, the Center serves the social role as a space of public interest and dialogue beyond the sensational icon. The homogenous surface breaks the physical boundary of architecture and plaza, redefining the connection between in and out; while the digital projections on skin bridged the intangible linkage between ideas and the substantial world.

Modern technology had transform broadcasting and the way how people communicate with each other. This project explored how a media and broadcasting center becomes the interface between the physical space, the virtual spaces and mental spaces within every individual. The importance of the space goes beyond the social meaning of a trade forum, and lies on how architecture can reflect and capture the technologies and social values associated with this interface.

Activity-time-space concept: from exterior to interior, spatial arrangement is done with respect to sequence of activities, that generates social outcome, creating identity of place and giving everyone platforms to communicate. This can stimulate the exchange of programme, exchange of functions, exchange of users and therefore also the exchange of activities, which is not something foreign to architecture but inherent in it. This is the beginning to open up towards the logic of dynamic and the complexity of our time.
