JAD International Student Design Competition

[ Tema Kompetisi ]
" Graphic Space, Space Graphic "

The facade of modern architecture is recognized as a entirely new meaning system that separates from the structure of the building and becomes as essential as interior through the various experiments; technical improvement, pervasive mass media, etc.

As various interests and attempts to transform the building surface into different aspects increase, the facade of modern architecture is developed into the new architectural status so that it interacts with people and leads to create the method of communication.

Now the facade is considered not only as a part of environmental design but also as a media of displaying digitalized information with a function of reacting on the climate. It also combines the two-dimensional graphic on the surface of the building within three dimensional spaces. The modern facade attempts to express the characteristics of the building even using the simple materials such as glass, concrete, steel, etc.

Thus, the facade has been changed to various forms inside to show its own characters of the building while outside to accept the harmony of the outfit among the environments.
