Interview with Nicholas Ho at Wednesday 6th of February 2013

FS: What is the main principle, idea and inspiration behind your design?
NH: To create a versatile and complimentary gallery space for emerging Asian artists

FS: What has been your main focus in designing this work? Especially what did you want to achieve?
NH: To create a universal flexible gallery space, where spatial and technical constraints in a traditional gallery are eliminated, to allow maximum layout potentials for the client to be able to easily transform the gallery's function.

FS: What are your future plans for this award winning design?
NH: this is my first gallery project, and I was able to infuse my technical background from designing laboratories into the support system of the space, I would like to continue to explore other institutional type architecture

FS: How long did it take you to design this particular concept?
NH: 2 weeks, the client was in a rush, so the idea was to allow flexibility, instead of controlled spaces for artists exhibitions

FS: Why did you design this particular concept? Was this design commissioned or did you decide to pursuit an inspiration?
NH: commissioned, but the client didnt know what she wants at the beginning, as a designer, I helped her find her project brief, and expanded on the development, all in all, it is a project that went beyong the clients expectations

FS: What made you design this particular type of work?
NH: I have a huge interest in art since growing up, and with my strong technical design background I feel it is a great opportunity to merge aesthetics with technology in a subtle and yet non-overpowering way

FS: Who is the target customer for his design?
NH: emerging Asian artists in the field of print making as well as the public audience

FS: What sets this design apart from other similar or resembling concepts?
NH: the notion of flexibility is redefined in this project, conventional gallery will have one or two movable elements in the art space to allow some sort of flexible partitions, but the lighting and electrical support always constraint different layouts. This project, it is safe to say everything is on a universal flexible nature.

FS: How did you come up with the name for this design? What does it mean?
NH: Same as the design concept, unmatched flexibility will soon take over gallery design in the future, since land is scarse and it is particularly hard to find large spaces, therefore, flexible spaces are the future

FS: Which design tools did you use when you were working on this project?
NH: rhino, autocad

FS: What is the most unique aspect of your design?
NH: 100% flexible

FS: What are some of the challenges you faced during the design/realization of your concept?
NH: time was tight, 40 days from inception design stage to project hand over

FS: How did you decide to submit your design to an international design competition?
NH: it is at this moment, a one of a kind project, and I would like to show it internationally to push this concept as the new gallery standard across the world

FS: What did you learn or how did you improve yourself during the designing of this work?
NH: to really understand the client needs at times when they don't even know what they want


FS: Thank you for providing us with this opportunity to interview you.
