DABEI TEMPLE

PERSONAL

DABEI TEMPLE

This project is to do the whole area design of Buddhist Institute and Dabei Temple site (which are parts of Guanyin Culture Park) by a 3-members group. The challenges are lots of restrictions in temple architecture such as the direction of the building, the axis, the location of different buildings, the form of space and so on. And the decision our group made is to obey the rule of temple architecture in general plan but use the modern methods of spatial organization and the new construction skills to design each building.

 

To make our individual parts work more like a whole, we created several “control table” - one is for the building form includes plan/section/roof, one is for the building language includes courtyard/material/structure, and one is for the relationship among every building. Then in the next step, everyone just picked up the element they need and still can work together.

 

In the first step of the project, I was responsible for the “control tables” , also the analysis diagrams making and took in the discussion of general plan design. Then in the second step of the project, I was responsible for the design of Dabei Temple, especially the most important three buildings. (The main hall, Dharma hall, and Depositary of Buddhist texts)
