Self Introduction
My name is Li Jiaxuan. I am a student at Huaqiao University. I'm glad I learned architecture that I love. I am a funny person in life, and I am also a person with special ideas in my studies. I have my own design studio. This allows me to reach out to different people, we can do design together, and finally become great friends.


When and how were you first introduced to architecture?
I have lived and grown up in building since I was born. I became interested in architect when I was a primary school student. At that time I was Interested in the shape of Koolhaas' Beijing TV station and witnessed the completion of Herzog and de Meuron's Beijing National Stadium. This made me feel the charm of building that it is indescribable . When I was in junior high school, I fell in love with football. In China, there were no professional football stadiums at that time, so I would learn about the appearance of foreign football stadiums in the video, especially the stadiums in the UK. Finally, I drew my dream Chinese football field on paper.


What is your design philosophy?
When I first heard this music, my biggest feeling was panicky. After listening this song again and again, I can feel a kind of horror and depression atmosphere. This reminds me of the story of the darkroom I saw on a blog. Afterwards, we took 'contradiction' as the main body, and described a person in an infinite circulation space from a first-person perspective, transforming the two emotions of hope and despair into a architectural space for expression.


What does architecture mean to you?
Architecture is emotional art. For me, architecture cannot predict the future, but it can create the future.


Briefly explain your design process and your perspective on sensory architecture.
For this music, we have asked friends who study classical music for help. They helped us analyze a lot of content from the perspective of music composition. Finally, we add our subjective feelings about music to make this work. For sensory architecture i think it is the god of human beings, in other words it controls people's emotions. Different spaces will bring people different feelings. Churches make us awed, amusement parks make us happy, cemeteries make us sad, and so on. That‘s why I attend this contest.`
