The “‘Yan’ Ancestral Hall” looks into the feasibility of a “low-tech” materialization strategy for non-standard architectural design in a broader China’s context. The site is in China’s rural village where even conventional material quality and labor skills are deficient. So, in this design, the local clay brick was preferred as the main building material, and recycled roof tiles from the previous building were reused. The design challenge of this project was the front façade, a morphologic deformation of the client’s family name “闫” (Yan). M.O.D.E.S generated the pattern projection presented with brick length iterations on the west elevation. This project illustrates the feasibility of “low-tech” implementation of a digitally designed non-standard brick façade in China’s rural area and uses computation capacity to bypass and control vernacular limitations. It emphasizes the digital thinking and the workflow reformation in a conventional materialization technique, which led to an explorative result.
