Gen-Zs use the internet as a perfect agent to seek the newest trends, the social and environmental issues worthy of attention problems, the more they know, the more opinions they are eager to express, more open-minded they are. They move into new revolutions for their life and speak out for the lives and works they want to own.Thesis: Rethink the living /working scenario and conditions of generation Z, who are the new generation with unrestrained minds and diversity. By making changes to both the vertical and horizontal volume of the interior space to make the place express the Gen-Z lifestyle and take into consideration of their desires for work-life balance.Project: The project aims to generate a mixed-use building for Gen-Z to live and work together, offering public areas that allow visitors as audiences to experience Gen-Z's living scenario through their own eyes. The building is going to be divided into 3-4 stories of suites, and 2 stories of co-work areas, together with event areas, shared kitchen/dining, and a rooftop garden. The project will also develop on the waterside with walkways, greenery, and an ice rink that invites the public to experience.
