• 竹工凡木的理念

    竹工凡木設計研究室(CHU-studio)團隊學經歷跨足建築、室內、景觀、工業設計及陳設軟裝設計,強調一條龍的全方面設計服務,讓整體規劃設計之氣脈風格相連一氣;並以台灣台北為總部,同時設有台灣台南分部、中國北京分部、新加波辦事處四個分據點。本團隊強調實務與研究之相輔相乘,在每個案子上秉持四大原則:數位性(Digitality)、藝術性(Art)、跨界性(Crossover)及永續性(Sustainability),由其對於電腦輔助設計(CAD)及電腦輔助生產(CAM)有持續之研究與應用,近來更致力參數式演算法,期望打破傳統設計思維,並有效降低工程成本。我們同時關注當代跨界的觀念,對於各種空間不完全遵循傳統固有的思維及做法,無論針對任何空間都企圖打破既有框架限制,尋找空間的可能性。

    The learning experience of CHU-studio team is combined with differentfields, such as architecture, interior, landscape, industrial design and softtrim design. Emphasizing all aspects of the projects, hoping the form of everydetails of the item can be related to each other. Headquarteredin Taipei, Taiwan, as well as branched in Tainan, China Beijing, Shenzhen andSingapore. The team focus on the complementarypractice and research multiplied, insist on four principles in each case:Digitality, Art, Crossover and Sustainability. The team especially constantly works oncomputer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacture (CAM). Recently theymake more effort on parametric algorithm, expect to break the traditionaldesign thinking, and effectively reduce the cost of the project. CHU-studio is alsoconcerned about the contemporary notion of crossover. Despite the traditionalthinking and inherent practices, and no matter what the type of space it is,CHU-studio attempt to break the frame restriction, searching more possibilitiesof it.

    竹工凡木的由來

    Michael Maltzan曾說過「I am not interested in solving everything.」,空間要解決的議題太多而太廣,我們不求面面俱到,只企圖在每個設計案中找到其自身特有的切入點。研究室的命名「竹工凡木」就是由中文繁體字「築」所解構出的四個部首,間接暗示了本研究室的核心價值,建築不再只是全面性的建構(Construction),而是透過解構(Deconstruction)的過程,找到單一特有的切入點,並用最純粹的手法來面對處理。

    “I am not interestedin solving everything.” Michael Maltzan said. There are too many issues tosolve in a space. We are not asking for perfection, but trying to find out thespecialty of every single project. Our studio named “Bamboo, Craft, Standard andWood” is four radicals which separated from the traditional Chinese word:Architecture. These four words indirectly display our core value: Architectureis not just a construction for all aspects, but a process of deconstructionwhich we discover a unique characteristic of every item and manage it withsimple skills.
