Lee Cheng Wei:
• I pursued my bachelors of Architecture in Shih Chien University Department of Architecture. I’m a founder of visual studio create high-end CGI images for architect, interior designer and construction company.
1. Please introduce yourself in a personal and professional way.
I pursued my bachelors of Architecture in Shih Chien University Department of Architecture. I’m a founder of visual studio create high-end CGI images for architect, interior designer and construction company.
2. What is your design philosophy?
What is the imaginary of architectures? Rethink the idea as a dream landscape, blending memories of the past with visions for the future.
3.Can you briefly explain your understanding of the topic and the source of ideas?
Renders are a essential tool to communicate a vision. I believe it is a crucial part of convince a vision. Through renders, we can blending memories of the past with visions for the future. Turning the image into a communicative tool are essential tools for providing good stories.
4. When and how you were first introduced to architecture?
I chose to pursue architecture after my first year studying physics at university, I find delight in the idea of exploring new possibilities through creating .
5. What does architecture mean to you?
I think architecture is exploring new possibilities.

Building in nature is inherently contradictory. While architecture can give people a sense of closeness to nature, the natural landscape is gradually being swallowed by architecture.
Diversified nature has suffered from a destruction of concrete, which not only loses the diversity of nature, but also the diversity of architecture.
Natural buildings should have a certain lifespan. Many people think that buildings should be long-lasting. When building design is highly complicated, construction technology has to rely heavily on machinery and equipment. Although natural and environmentally friendly materials are used, the carbon footprint generated by transportation and construction is a cost to nature.
In terms of wooden construction, it will change with life. The lightweight wooden construction system, modular and sustainable development of the new era construction technology flexibly adapts to different types of bases, and can be easily constructed even in the most rugged places.
Human existence in the natural landscape is an interaction of scales, the juxtaposition of primitive sheds and nature, and the negotiation between the use of the landscape and the protection of the environment. Explore various and formal strategies.
The influence of nature on architectural design is increasing. We accept the guidance of trees instead of overriding them. The new building found innovative ways to integrate the natural landscape into and around the building.
The movable wooden house does not need to dig the foundation, as long as 4 cement piles are injected, and the whole frame is made of steel, which is very strong. This is a way of living that is gentler to the land, will not harm the land, and can be changed and moved at any time.
For example, the roof is made of plastic-aluminum panels, and the outer walls are made of cypress wood, and all foam insulation materials are placed, and the air layer is also designed to provide heat insulation in summer and warm in winter.
Wooden houses can actually be copied quickly, all components are systematized, and the style of the house can be changed, which can be completed in a few hours. If the deterioration of some materials, it can be repaired, and changed little by little.
