As Lao Tzu puts it that “mix clay into a utensil and make doors and windows to build a house”, which points to the underlying meaning of physical design concept - design is creation. With the concept of “creation” in mind, we are able to actively blur the design boundary, focus on the exploration of material ethics and material potentials, empower logic to materials while studying and seizing material forms along the way, and eventually finish the creation by taking material as a start. In this regard, the physical design concept is a holistic art view based on material rationalism and it also reflects the thinking and accumulation of DAQIARCHITECTS on full scale chain design.
