Architecture and Poetry [DRAFT]

Project Overview

I am a high school student. I’m very passionate about architecture and design. I use this model to express the concept of my ideal future space.

Project Brief

This is a coffee shop. The overall outline structures adopt the imagination of the sci-fi world that I have liked since childhood. It looks like a battleship and a King Kong at the same time. The appearance lines are based on the concept of trees as forests. The shadows of the trees are swaying like the wind. Science fiction overlaps with nature, as when I grow older, I can get more design inspirations in the space I’m designing.

Project Innovation/Need

This is a conceptual model. I hope that in the possible future, I can actually complete this work in a certain city. When the time comes, the overall color will still be mainly black, and I hope to add green lines to make the consumers of this coffee shop to experience the fun of science fiction and nature well-balanced together.

Design Challenge

As a high school student without any design experience, it is a big challenge for me to express my concepts through a model.
I have to master the size of the space and the aesthetics of the appearance. I also need to understand global trends, architectural concepts, as well as current trends.
Most importantly, in order to be an architect in the future, I need to devote myself to environmental protection. This is the most meaningful contribution and challenge to human beings.


The building materials I use must be environmentally friendly and energy-saving. Soon, I would like to be a qualified and excellent architect who cherishes the only earth we have, improves the environment and the land, has sustainable construction in mind and be a part of the environmental protection while designing the things I love. This is my ambition for the future and my contribution to the society.

This award celebrates the design process and product of planning, designing and constructing form, space and ambience that reflect functional, technical, social, and aesthetic considerations. Consideration given for material selection, technology, light and shadow. The project can be a concept, tender or personal project, i.e. proposed space.
