2. Who is my structure made for?
My Structure is made for the refugees in Hong Kong. The apartments have one way glass in the front and at the top solar panel glass. The apartment complex will include a school and a supermarket. The apartment complex will also offer jobs to the refugees such as teachers, security guard and cashiers. The apartment complex will house refugees on the top part of the structure.
3. What ideas and inspirations helped shape your design?
When I was thinking of what type of building to make for I decided to make a building that was similar to a building in Hong Kong but a little different. The difference is the base, the base of the structure is different than the top of the structure. The base of the structure is wider and bigger than the top. The reason being is that the base houses the school and the supermarket and the top of the building on houses the apartments.
4. Where will my building be built?
My building would be built Kowloon by the airport so if the refugees needed to go somewhere fast they could. Also Kowloon is in between the airport and Hong Kong Island so if they needed to go to the island it could be easy. Also Kowloon has more space than Hong Kong island it also has more space than Lantau Island.
5. Why is your building relevant?
My building has many benefits to live in it such as a supermarket, grocery store and a school. Also the apartment uses clean energy by using see through solar panels. Also the building has a pool. The building provides security, a structure and electricity with air conditioning.
6. How does your building address beauty?
My structure has a curved design in the front with glass. It also has a pool around the structure with a glass roof. The glass in the front is one way glass. By doing this the structure looks like luxury home instead of a refugee home.
7. What element are you most proud of?
I am most proud of the glass in the front. The reason I am most proud of that is because the glass in the front is curved and was very hard to line up since it was curved. My partner and I worked very hard not to make a bulge in the centre of the glass.
8. What design elements need improvement?
I think the top part of my structure needs improvement since the sides of the top are not even. Also because we could not use a normal roof we had to use a glass roof for it since it was uneven.
9. In your opinion how important is architecture?
Architecture is very important, architecture can make a building stand out or look very bad. Architecture represents cultures and monuments, such as the Statue of Liberty since that structure has very precise architecture, because of this the Statue of Liberty is one of the most recognized and loved structures.
