華懋的核心價值 - 代表一 ： 百合花

Four different projects are tied together to represent the cityscape of density. The model connections using organic wood, recycled wood, and petrified wood inquire into one’s perception of materiality through time and the transformation of historical reality.

The win-win urban formation is highlighted by the integrity of assemblage, innovative structure, accountability to others, all in the spirit of harmonious collaborative team work for the public realm.
