Rethinking Materiality and Construction.
Ar. Hans Brouwer.
In Singapore, most buildings are constructed through the use of precast concrete, timber and steel. Could materiality for architecture be explored further using uncommon materials for construction?
Through the urban cyclists and their leg paddled vehicles as protagonists, bicycles are broken down to their nuts and bolts in order to study their construction and joinery methods. Carbon fibre in this aspect is looked as a new material possible to be used for construction.
As architecture replicates the concepts behind the modern bicycle, the proposed architecture itself becomes a home for the bicycles.
