Abstract

This paper proposes the emergence of surface materiality of architecture from nature, culture and time. The emergence of surface from the choreography of nature, culture and time offers an understanding of surface materiality beyond the common, modern building materiality. A case of design research project in the context of a natural site with challenging topography illustrates the process of generating various forms of architectural surfaces from the elements of nature and culture, articulated with the elements of time. The process of choreographing the elements of nature, culture and time becomes more important than just the physical crafting or constructing of building elements. While the latter merely concerns with the physical realization of the architecture, the former might enhance the performativity of material surface.
