Bamboo Wall

Architect: Kengo Kuma (Japan)

The Bamboo Wall has six bedrooms. The host bedroom and guest rooms all have separate bathrooms. A tea room, the climax of the Bamboo Wall, is encircled by lean bamboos on four sides. While sipping tea inside, one can spot a beacon tower on the Great Wall looming through the crevices in the bamboo walls. The ten-odd-square-meter tea room hangs over water, emanating a strong spirit of Zen Buddhism.

Suitcase House

Architect: Gary Chang (Hong Kong)

Casting a question mark upon the proverbial image of the house, this scheme attempts to rethink the nature of intimacy, privacy, spontaneity and flexibility. It is a simple demonstration of the desire for ultimate adaptability, in pursuit of a proscenium for infinite scenarios, a plane of sensual leisure.

Cantilever House

Architect: Antonio Ochoa (China)

The cantilever house is a natural consequence not of the specific site, but of the slope of the mountain. A consequence not of the specific location of the sun but of the need of it. The consequence of not having a specific user but sensitive and cultivated people.
