Interview with Ziyu Zhuang at Friday 4th of May 2018

FS: From your point of view, what are the responsibilities of a designer for society and environment?
ZZ: As an architect, I mean, your responsibility to social environment is so consistent, so responsible and so big responsibility. because as architect you are taking the resource of the whole society. And you changing a lot of the situation with the environment so that when you building standing there, you have to consider what's the impact after your building finished. Right? So that I think that's also the design approach we always consider. Take Tongling Recluse project, this time’s winning project. There's really such a poor house over there as existing condition that we consider that very seriously and how the remaining walls can become part of the design element in the future structure in the future organization of the space. So that's part of the exterior wall became interior. How is the apartment or compartment wall? And part of the original interior wall was combined with the new elevation became the new face for the architecture. that is a minimum impact of the environment. However, the existing condition became part of the current design. And we think those remaining images or the remaining atmosphere of the original space, has a strong contribution to the society and especially to the local people. So those remaining parts end up with a very nice remaining memory or combining with the new images became a very, special new places for the local people to go.

FS: How do you work with companies?
ZZ: Well, my company basically working as a big studio. I usually have went to the site, emerges myself and then also talk with the client. So that I got the general image or the rough images, like, it’s like making sketch. But I don't really offer any solid sketch to my partners or to my colleagues, because it will limit their imagination. So that working method is more like I gave them some general images with some reference inspiring images, like none which is not really necessary being architecture. But any kind of inspiration images, with my expression or with my description are in words so that they can generally feel the atmosphere and the about right target so that they explore themselves and finding out the target or finding out the scope of work. And I basically lead them to decide things that I said to form the final design process. But it's not really just like single way are going straight forward, but it's more like a journey of discovery for architecture.

FS: What is the most frequently asked question to you, as a designer?
ZZ: I usually ask myself a lot of contexts. What context is something we said different from design are different from the other types of design. Architecture is kind of design word focus the site on site. So, what's going on there for many years? And what's going to be about for the future for many, many years, so that the contexts is really the strongest element. Uh, if you say you describe, you know, the design description is one of the thing. But for me, the contexts itself of the site is the most important thing. Or of course, It's the whole design procedure is basically how to put a new hierarchy into the new contacts into the news in to the site is the final question for us. I think.


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