Main interests of TAALab (Towards A new Architecture Lab) are including ¡®Future¡¯, ¡®Tools¡¯ and ¡®Neutrality & Entelechy¡¯ of architecture. The lab will select & research topics and issues related key words above from human, architecture city and nature. - Future: Novelty and difference are inevitable. Since the only absolute truth that human being can rely on in the universe is ¡®Everything must change¡¯, it¡¯s very hard to be suspicious about the hypothesis ¡®The future of architecture will be different from its present and past¡¯. Architectural design in its nature as creation belongs to the future. It stands on the past and present grounds of human, architecture, city and nature, but, eventually constitutes the upcoming. - Tool: Concepts, ideas, diagrams, sketches, drawings, images, models, 3D modeling and BIM, etc are just tools for prediction and representation of architecture before its existence. However, the fate of architecture in the future depends on current possibilities and limits of the tools that produce architecture. - Neutrality and Entelechy: Entelechy, the immaterial values of architecture - maximum possibilities of interpretation and choice; come from neutrality independent from any imposition including efficiency, function, aesthetics, style and message. The architecture of neutrality can be explained as the platform to host multiple changes and interpretations based on rational combination of technical and physical substructure.
