度 [do]

1.n. (linear) degree
2.verb. estimate; speculate

Our agenda is to develop architecture that emerges from the combination of explicit and implicit design operations. This approach enables the negotiation of two often conflicting design methodologies: the deterministic global representation and the autonomous local organization. We challenge the dichotomy between the two and seek to develop a synthesis of coherent architectural synergy that could be engineered into irreducible constructions.

态 [tA]

1.n. Form; condition; appearance
2.n. Ecological environment
3.n. State; condition

Beyond computational driven, we inquire about developing appropriate design products, in which design operations are dedicated to the realization of innovative and sustainable projects, rather than the manipulation of form which often leads to an excess of spectacle. This approach positions our practice within the domain of architectural discipline, and furthermore embraces the rich heterogeneity and flux of social, cultural, material and ecological substrates.

2.(动词) 推测,估计

我们希望设计有“度”:既探索通过科学方法寻求合理设计结果的确定性价值(计量),也认同并发掘建筑设计本身的自组织和不确定性(推测)。在复杂系统中,局部(形态、生态)的确定性等于整体(状态)的不确定性,两者互为表里。

1.(名词) 形态
2.(名词) 生态
3.(名词) 状态

我们希望设计有“态”:“态”是“度”的结果。对于空间、材料和建造的关注确保了形态的适用性;对于业主投入回报和环境保护的关注确保了生态的可持续性;对于不同尺度的设计介入复杂社会环境的研究确保了状态的多样性。三者相互作用。
