Xiangcheng District Planning Exhibition Hall
Nearly billions of passengers flow through Suzhou North Railway Station every year. When the high-speed train slows down before entering the station, this exhibition hall could be visible at a glance! The advantage of site location determines its uniqueness. Each visible façade of architecture is very important. We carried out researches in two ways; one is the garden type, some enclosed elements are applied in space constraints to achieve orderly space change. Obviously, it is difficult for garden-style to achieve the meaning carried by the building, so we adapted another way that setting a point to make it a whole without scatter, let it become a city landmark and visual focus!


This building is located near one of the high speed rail station and acts as an monumental building in Suzhou, China. The building is used as an Exhibition Hall so, to make the building more interactive to the visitors the exterior façade is responsive to the human movements.  The façade will go inwards as humans come closer and move outwards as they move away from the façade.


Set one line from rhino
Divide curve  to get multiple points
        02.A. Create an attractor point for the surface
        02 B. Making a surface  with this points
Make a range with same steps as the number of points
Connect it to Sine Graph mapper
Then remap the graph mapper
And connect it to explode tree
Connect the data to vector yz 
Then connect it to move with base geometry
Connecting the  moved points  with distance
Adding an attractor point to the distance
Remap the distance and connect to amplitude
Connecting the amplitude with the axis in which the Points will move
Connecting the axis to move with the base points
Moving the line in z axis to get the façade
Connecting the attracted points and points moved to z axis to  Bezier Span
Giving surface the extrusion and color
Repeating the same process for all four sides  and merge it to control  with one slider.

Human responsive facade is a project of IAAC, the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia, developed during the Master in Advanced Architecture (MAA01) 2020/21 by students: Aswin Kumar and Harshul Goti; Faculty: David Andrés León; faculty assistant: Ashkan Foroughi; and student assistants: Laukik Lad & Uri Lewis
