Che-Hung Chien _ Permeable fibrosity: Domestic Ferry Terminal

 

The proposed domestic ferry terminal creates a dynamic interface between the old industrial port area and a new public-scape. The fibrous formations create a permeable water landscape which acts as an obstacle when organising and separating arrival and departure circulation. The building comprises an undulated ground plane

 that floods locally in relation to the tide, thus establishing moments of pause and route diversion within the busy terminal. The roof evolves into floors and columns made up of multiple components which can be reconfigured to allow flexible use and easy future repair.
