Origami Passage , London city Hall

My proposal blends art and utility to create a harmonious atmosphere in London City Hall. I'm excited to show you my origami-inspired shelter and architectural masterpiece.
The City Hall in London symbolises government and administration. Despite its beauty, people needed a place to shelter from bad weather, especially rain. I designed an origami corridor to link the amphitheatre and the main building in this environment.
I wanted to introduce the beauty and adaptability of origami to London City Hall. Furthermore, I wanted to design a unique route that served its function and captivated visitors.
The origami route becomes a mesmerising adventure for individuals seeking refuge. Each fold, twist, and shape is deliberately designed to provide a dynamic and fascinating experience. The geometric designs' light and shadow play generates a sense of interest and amazement, like being in an art piece.
The tunnel connects the amphitheatre and main building while honouring London's rich cultural past. The passage's subtle indications of the city's history and energetic vitality encourage tourists to appreciate their surroundings.
This origami-inspired corridor will make London City Hall a practical and beautiful place. It shelters, beautifies, and inspires tourists on rainy days, proving design can improve life.

Digital Architecture and Construction

In line with the Construction Industry Council (CIC) 2050 vision for the construction industry, the course provides students with a comprehensive understanding of the theories, tools, and techniques used in digital architecture and construction. By focusing on the underlying methodologies and reasoning behind the software, the course prepares students to adapt to new technologies and software packages throughout their careers.

In addition to technical skills, students also learn design management and multi-disciplinary collaboration, essential for leadership positions in the field. The course's emphasis on sustainable design practices and historical building information modelling (HBIM) helps students develop solutions that are both environmentally responsible and respectful of cultural heritage.
