The principle of this project is “plug-in systems”. It’s a specific form of purposeful attachment relationship in which one purposeful element is shaped or sports a modification to mate with another. SPIN aims to discover a more interesting way connecting and occupying the zone between land and ocean. It aims to create land that moves with the wave and is resilient in the face of flooding. At the same time, to allow city to expand to the ocean. Its modularity allows it to form small neighborhoods on the water, provides both living and entertainment functions. People here can experience the change and transition of different modules, from horizontal to vertical.
