INSPIRATION:

ROCKS A’tolan is the word meaning, “a place with many rocks”, from the indigenous language of the natives on the east coast of Taiwan. It may also be interpreted as “piling of rocks”, “building wall with rocks”, or “a house made out of rocks.”

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

A’tolan House The site is located on the eastern seaboard of Taiwan, adjacent to the Pacific Ocean. The foundation is of a narrow rectangular shape of approximately 90 meters in length and 30 meters in width, sitting on the north-south axis. Following the coastline, at approximately 60 meters down the axis from the north, the structure turns 130 degrees east. The downward slope from west to east is transformed and represented in three levels.

INTERACTION:

The physical characteristics of the site and the heritage of the indigenous people are the main inspirations for this project. The bend in the coastline defines the shape of the structure and the natural slope forms the three terrace level. The indigenous craft of a’tolan: building with rocks, establishes the theme of the design.
