||The main architectural type of normal alley space in Taiwan is apartment with 4-5 floors. The appearance façades most have an iron window like a cage, covering the space of the balcony and meeting demands for safety and space extension. Through accumulation of time, iron window structure becomes a special culture of Taiwan architecture. This paper does not consider its legality, only discusses intermediary space integration between utilization and façade modeling, as well as possibility of space, structure and façade modeling. The research expects to decompose elements of wall and redefine diversity of wall space through discussion on schema of wall in segmentation space, try to reconstruct elements of schema and units to be added, to add using function to wall space and shape façade modeling.
Aggregation composes small elements to form big object. Except structure strength of elements, the idea of combining elements to generate higher strength and many possibilities of structure may be one of necessary development trends in the future when large materials are lacked. Therefore, the research takes the most basic element in architecture-brick as the main basic element in wall design. Space of permutation and combination of bricks on wall generates visual penetration and space. Natural elements such as sunshine, wind, water or plant are introduced to increase opportunity for human to contact with nature, to make the intermediary space in our life naturally become the communication medium between human and nature.
The research design includes two stages. The first stage is basic wall space and design. It utilizes pileup of bricks to make wall shape space on edge and inside, what’s more, it adds rotation and bending to change sense of space of vertical face of wall. The second stage applies the wall designed in the above stage into balcony façade and uses it for building façade design, to make wall space response to building space, and make wall space extend to overall façade, to generate façade modeling. In the initial phase of design, considering the relation between building material and architecture, it adopts bricks as main material. Appearance of most bricks is rectangular, thus modeling in design shows rectangular blocks. However, when rotation and pileup are added, visual illusion of concave-convex angles makes surface texture change, to bring unstable visual sense and generate dynamic effect. It can be used for indoor and outdoor space needing visual focus in the future. In the design of selecting wall initially, it amplifies units and adds function and activity behavior, to become another kind of space form. If the space form is added with material to convert to concrete units such as metal box and metal frame, it can develop to pileup in other forms and generate high possibility of pileup.
In design process, we have thought of adding plant as main natural elements integrating nature, but we find that it seems not a matter of course to integrate building with nature because most media between plant and building are man-made vessel provided for plant by us. Maybe we can use natural original materials as the medium introducing contact of plant, such as brick, to make plant really live our structure. Besides, to create unstable sense capable of stable pileup, we use parametric modeling in design phase, to design pileup in various forms. With various units, pileup in the same method and different forms can be generated.
