Located in the East Region of Surabaya, the WM Plenary Hall’s brief was simple : to create a building that caters for the annual graduation. Rather than simply designing a building that accommodates 2 1.500 students, we began asking ourselves, what other values can we add to make this building a student-centric building, rather than just being a monument used sparingly every year.

WM全體會議廳位於泗水的東部地區,其簡介很簡單:創建一棟滿足年度畢業要求的建築。 我們開始問自己,我們不僅要設計可容納2個1.500名學生的建築物,還需要增加什麼其他價值,以使該建築物成為以學生為中心的建築物,而不僅僅是每年僅少量使用的紀念碑。

As the project was procured through a closed competition, we look at ways to create an architecture that is different than the existing typology in the area. In the end, an idea of injecting various informal programs came into the design as a solution. The result is quite straightforward, yet unique.

由於該項目是通過非公開競賽而獲得的,因此我們研究了創建不同於該地區現有類型的體系結構的方法。 最後,在設計中註入了各種非正式程序的想法作為解決方案。 結果非常簡單,但是卻很獨特。

Infused Activity. A big atrium is placed on the ground level, which leads to a multifunction hall on the second floor. We put smaller function rooms (meeting and study) on the mezzanine floor to create a connection between the main void and student’s activity. It’s purposely designed to accommodate both communal, specific and private program. The auditorium fully occupies the entire 3rd floor alongside with backstage area and cafeteria.

注入的活動。 大的中庭位於地面,通向二樓的多功能廳。 我們在夾層地板上放置了較小的多功能室(會議和學習室),以在主要空隙和學生的活動之間建立聯繫。 它是專為適應公共,特定和私人計劃而設計的。 大禮堂以及後台區域和自助餐廳全部佔據了整個三樓。

Section of Program. A new problem arises when the main auditorium capacity is enlarged to 2.000. With a much bigger upper floor, the building will need to either decrease floor area in communal area or reduce the budget given at other aspects of the building, such as the facade. Mass Transformation. To still achieve an efficient enough floor area for student activities while also having enough budget for facade, we decided that it is important to build efficiently. We decided that rather than increasing floor area at the lower levels, the building should remain ‘top-heavy’ while we look at ideas to wrap the building efficiently.

程序部分。 當主禮堂容量擴大到2.000時,出現了一個新問題。 如果上層更大,則建築物將需要減少公用區域的佔地面積,或減少建築物其他方面(例如外牆)的預算。 大規模轉型。 為了在學生活動中仍然獲得足夠的有效建築面積,同時又有足夠的門面預算,我們決定有效地進行建築非常重要。 我們決定,在考慮有效包裝建築的想法時,應該保持建築“高層”,而不是在較低樓層增加建築面積。

The solution comes through the creation of a minimal-waste skin configuration, which is tailored to follow the different floor masses dynamically. Through a thorough research on different types of material and modules, assisted by scripting and digital simulation, we come up with the idea of wrapping the building with various sized planar aluminum panels.

該解決方案是通過創建最小浪費的皮膚配置來實現的,該配置可以動態地適應不同的地板質量。 通過對不同類型的材料和模塊的透徹研究,並通過腳本和數字仿真的輔助,我們提出了用各種尺寸的平面鋁板包裹建築物的想法。

Waste-less Facade. The idea is to create enough rigid modules of panels to be replicated randomly around the building, to give a sense of ‘randomness’ while being calculative. We started by cutting a standard off the shelf panels into two in three different areas, creating a total configuration of 6 individual sized panels. These panels will then have two different shades of color, creating 6 pairs of different panels. Through digital computation, these 6 pairs are then put repeated and spread across the whole building, covering the protruding masses of the building like a puzzle. We then tagged each panels with codes to make sure that every panels are used in pairs whilst also creating a cutting pattern size for each individual pieces that minimize the waste of the ‘off the shelf’ panels.

This method generates only 7% of aluminium panel waste, when normally it can reach up to 20-25% of waste. We focus on controlling the balance between material efficiency and the overall building form, ever changing its shape slightly to come up with the most efficient waste percentage.

Compared to the initial design in the competition, there are a lot of adjustments being done as the project goes, especially for the facade. Through digital computation, these changes can easily be controlled and re-calculated in order to keep the waste minimum. This approach also help the owners confidence in keeping the building, especially the facade, within budget.
