ile have all been applied with sensitivity where found suitable.
This community center is also an avant-garde exploration of how to integrate new construction technology with local craft in the era of digital humanities. The project integrates parametric design, traditional construction techniques and contemporary prefabrication industrialization. The high efficiency afforded by pre-fabrication made the 52-day construction period possible. In that time all the main building construction, interior and landscape site work were completed.
“We actually need to bring something urban and futuristic to our countries, instead of simply imitating, if our future countries industrialized factories can be equipped with advanced industrialization approaches and instruments, like robotic construction and digital industry, it would certainly rouse a significant industrial upgrading. We can already foresee it in this project.” –Philip F. Yuan.
