Our design practice is based on the fundamental belief that the essence of existence is the symbiosis of Things and their Interrelation. The Elements of a Relation and the Relation itself reinforce each other as reciprocal causation, neither of which can exist without the other, and the combination of the two is where meaning is produced. Since the elements of spatial design are often preconditioned, we intuitively pay more attention to the subtle appropriateness of Systematic Logics in our projects. NOR is considered as a Middle Way: neither this nor that, neither here nor there, neither bound nor free, neither Being nor Non-being. As an indefinite framework established accordingly, it negotiates contradictions in motion, creating an interpotentiation field where the energies of all elements are heightened in each other's presence.
Based in Beijing, STUDIO NOR is an inter-disciplinary architectural design practice founded by partners Boyuan Jiang and Jingwen Wang. We work at multiple scales and fields, from building and landscape to interior and installation. We believe in the power of precise balance between people and object, concept and making, body and mind. We regard design as an exploration to achieve such balances in response to the unique potential of each project.
我们的设计实践基于一个基本认知,即存在的本质是「事物」与事物间「关系」的共生。「关系的对象」和「关系自身」互为因果、缺一不可,两者的复合才产生意义。鉴于空间设计的「元素」往往既定,我们直觉地更加关注项目中「体系逻辑」的微妙合宜。「不,也」可以被理解为一条自然而然的「中道」:不如此,也不如彼、不在此,也不在彼、不受缚,也不自由、不有,也不无。它因势立体、以本哺支,作为一套暧昧的框架,运动地调和着诸多矛盾,使它们在互为拱扶的场域中能因其他元素的存在而增益各自能量。
「不也设计工作室」是一间涉足建筑、景观、室内、装置等不同领域工作的建筑设计事务所,由姜伯源、王静雯在北京成立。我们相信精准平衡人与物、思考与实践、身体与意识等关系的力量,并将设计视作因应每个项目独特潜力去实现这一平衡的探索。
