Research Fields

Three Main Categories of The Overall Project


  1. Ever-changing spatial sequences that attribute to the interchangeable experiences of comfort and discomfort

  2. Visual fields that are generated through the sequential organisations that have certain obstacles or highlights at the end
  3. The role of surface treatment on the obstacles or highlights through materiality, textures and lighting
