A portable, shape-shifting cultural pavilion. The pavilion takes the form of a tetrahedron with one hexagonal face, one cross-shaped face, one rectangular face and one circular face.

The form of the Transformer is derived from a Tetrahedron and when rotated each side facilitates a different program. The programs envisioned include the Prada Waist down Exhibition, an art exhibit by a world renowned artist and a movie festival. The final closing event of the pavilion will entail a Prada fashion show for 500 guests.



In order to accommodate a range of different fashion, art and movie events in 2009, cranes will rotate, and then flip the pavilion into 4 different façade and floor plate configurations.

The lobsters boasts of their armor, but we know that they are so gentle and soft inside. The hardliners,   the strong men we face each day might be like the lobsters. The Story of the red chamber mentions a    stone, unused, left out... It is a great story that can be translated into architecture.   Ntsa_Stone might be a stone looking shellfish which may hold the cosmic-complex spaces.



BODY+ARCHITECTURE+FANTASY

We occupy space with a body. The body is occupied by many smaller creatures. We deal with scales, many different scales. All of them at once, would be interesting. We enter a house.We enter a womb. So architecture must be a female, hence the female body. Of course there were times of obelisks and pagodas which were full to the core, thus male. We do not recollect having been in a womb. But, I am sure it is somewhere in our subconscious mind-body. What is fantasy? Fantasy is something realizable but never actually realized, because, we do not want to fulfill it. - Hoon Moon
