Tao Hua Wu
My understanding of architectural design is oriented towards the "active process" instead of the deliberate plan of design. While a deliberate plan involves the representation of one's own subjective world views, my "active process" is demonstrated as a conceptual congregation of surrounding elements including religion, culture, and climate. I prefer to formulate my architectural concepts through a relaxed and tangible mode of life, in order to produce a pure, natural form of human expression. My design process seeks to distill a sensual touch from life and society, to discover these essences of human history which have transcended and fused cultural and colloquial characteristics through the progression of time.
