Symbiosis – Life begins from sharing.
Symbiosis is the connection of the individual self, but they rely on each other to live (Heinrich Anton De Bary – German professor).
The first thing I want to say that I really respect the freedom and independence of the life of American. However, in our design, we want to begin a life by connecting and sharing.
SYMBIOSIS – a symbiotic design, a symbiotic life. It’s more intimate than the neighborhood, the brotherhood or relative relationship could be. It is likely considered as the life of a twin fetus, where each is influenced by the other.
People can see the others in their small community, the design opens for people to communicate easily, but If they want to keep their alone life-style, it can also be able to close, no one can disturb each other. We built the connecting-way by sight, but divided space by physical elements.
In this dwelling, they have one assembled-garden. They share the same sunlight and wind together. We combined the nature with the living-space. The assembled-garden can work with two different and opposite effects: connect and divide, community and individual.
I did not force them to live in my way but the architecture will play as a director of their lives.
“AND IT SHOULD BE A SENSE FOR HUMAN TO KEEP THE VALUE THAT THEY SHARED.”
