  • Placebo Center of Senses Type: Commercial Building Size: not limited Location: not limited Status: In progress Concept: beautiful death

    Trigger all your senses painful, tired, lonely, afraid, bored, down, depressed...These are the words describe dying people in their beds. They are too weak to move, and have lost their appetite Sometimes they smells bad because they are too tired, and depressed to wash-up. Everyday is another day closer to death, they are afraid, and lonely.

    Death can be celebrated by beauty, it does not have to be described with negative words because without death, life is less beautiful. I am propos-ing the Placebo Center of Senses where patients purify their body and spirit with the cycle of natural senses.

  • Salk Institution Competition Type: Educational Building Size: 100,000ft2 Location: La Jolla. CA Status: In progress Concept: Legacy principle, buildings define indoor and outdoor rooms of assembly

    Lagacy Continuum This Design focused on the idea of creating safe harbor for body, mind and soul. The Salk project master plan and site design allows for the landscape to be agrarian, rural, but included in regions where human occupation has shaped the land in an intimate and reciprocal way. Organ-izing new buildings with Khans legacy court-yard module (Legacy Court-yard A and B), established a set of rules in which to develop a pattern which reflects and reacts to the diverse city network surrounding it. This allows for the site to both metaphorically and literally blends with its surroundings, becoming a unique entity, not a singular one. Build-ings define indoor and outdoor rooms, creating interesting space between spaces, which remains fluid, allowing movement and flow through the site to remain natural and not forced. Legacy court-yards created by different buildings have established a variety of experiential spaces at key points in the site. Meditative, congregational or gathering, and transitional are just a few. View corridors and viewpoints created by court-yard and buildings provide a sense of drama, and suspense in approaching the site, as well as vistas celebrating the form and striking impact of the build-ing and site.
