This project investigates the possibility of using the concept of projection to blur a boundary, as well as the potential to create an ambiguous transition between various spaces. In this project, the differentiation between floors, inside and outside, solid and void, starts to fade away.

Projection is a way to understand the world. Through “looking”, we “collapse” the original object, and reconstruct the image in our head.

Learning is in the same way, we “break down” the phenomenon in order to comprehend the logic, and through experiments, we examine the theory repetitively. Learning is also about seeing the same thing from different perspectives in order to recognize the whole, and to create new forms through repetitive efforts.

Projected lines constitute the project. Starts from an “original” point of view, the spaces grow through constant projection and back projection. The projected lines become solid and void elements. Spaces that defined by thick walls contain specific programs; while the rest of the spaces remain as large rooms open to various activities.
