RECLAIM THE PIER: INDUSTRY
A Response to Rapid Deindustrialization
UNDERGRADUATE STUDIO
Fall 2019
"Pier Typologies"


Tutor: Roberto Requejo Belette
Repurposing the industrial pier and reinventing it to fit today's oil-free society. The prototype is largely idealistic in concept but the intention is to reintroduce retrofitting to enable more sustainable spaces.

This studio was primarily focused on using drawing as a tool of representation hence abstraction and reconstruction to explore the formal tectonics of the existing pier in Hong Kong, Lok On Pai.
The lines are isolated by density to identify potential elements that the prototype could address.

Through rough sketching, I was able to develop a complementary form to provide to the existing pier. The test was devloped rather functionless by the dynamicness of the buoyancy fit perfectly into a aquatic recreation pier.
