On the one hand, I am fascinated by a phenomenon that creates richness and harmony in nature, like trees of the same kind sharing the same characteristics and being individually unique. On the other hand, in contemporary Hong Kong housing architecture, pure repetition dominates on all distinguishable levels. For my final year project, I studied the levels of order of trees, developed an implementation of this order in scripts, and generated drawings of trees. Then I tried to apply this thinking and working method to an architectural question. I formulated the design of a housing tower not as a fixed project but as a description of its parts and their relationship over several levels of order. The way I used parameters, allows me to control characteristics on all levels from elements to the whole tower and to create a wide range of spatial configurations and expressions.
