HUIQIN NANCY JIANG 1 CONDOMINIUM PROJECT - FALL 2009 FLAMINGO BEACH, COSTA RICA The design behind this condo is reflective of the ocean. Its curvilinear lines are reminiscent of the waves and Flamingo Beach's shore. Horizontal lines play with the horizon between the sky and the sea. Elements of reflection, repetition, depth, and translucence further evolve this ocean-inspired design, bringing it to life by embracing the ocean's serenity and organic nature. DESIGN Design, to me, is mostly about problem solving. It is being presented a Design, to me, is mostly challenge and coming up with about problem solving.

By examining typical movements of humans throughout the day and contrasting it against the sun's motions, a floor plan emerged that not only blocked the least number of pre-existing windows, but also allowed the clients to constantly stay in a space that had the least amount of sun glare, permitting them to leave the drapes open and look down to the magnificent landscape below.

This flow pattern promotes interaction with nature, as well as with the activities within the space. It also allows for the wanderer to continue through the several circular routes available. SITE PLAN KIVEL CAMPUS OF CARE MEMORY CARE PROJECT - SPRING 2011 PHOENIX, ARIZONA This memory care center for dementia patients is inspired by changing lifestyles and brings something different and unfamiliar by focusing on harmonizing eastern and western designs. It symbolizes that change is not just something that must be welcomed, but can also be enjoyed. 9 ENTRY TV LOUNGE NEW ADDITION FIRST FLOOR PLAN Wayfinding is one of the most important issues in a memory care center. This issue was addressed through visual cues - contrasting borders on the floors and colorful frames around the doors. These colors are unique to each activity area and are introduced in a subtle way. Exterior materials are also brought into the space. These materials are kept in their true form, allowing its honesty to bring a more welcoming touch to the center. The custom laser cut wooden panels is not just a unifying element that is seen in the entire facility, but also brings out the honesty of the background material. NEW ADDITION MEZZANINE PLAN CUSTOM SEATING ETHEREAL SKY LOUNGE PROJECT - FALL 2010 DELTA SKY CLUB,INCHEON, SOUTH KOREA This modern sky lounge envelops the end user in an ethereal dream-like space that defies gravity, questions perception, and submerges users in an interesting yet peaceful world where things aren't necessarily as they seem. Achieved through the unique use of line, scale, and light, this space derives its inspiration from the inherent beauty found in music.

DESIGN EXCELLENCE NOMINATION 2011/2012 TempeEx is not just a project that restores a once important but now abandoned site in Tempe, but serves to capitalize on the very essence of the city - its rich history. For 126 years the Hayden Mill was a food processing center located in the heart of Tempe that in many ways was responsible for the city's very existence. TempeEx aims to re-kindle the power of the Hayden Mill by creating a virbrant attraction that looks back to the past and aims to define a better future for the site, its local caretakers, and outside visitors. As a site that is located in Tempe, TempeEx is truly a development that is from Tempe. In collaboration with: Margarita Leonova, Jesse Slim, and Chris Lee SITE MODEL HOTEL GUESTROOM BAR EXTERIOR RESTAURANT DINING BAR ENTRY While each program within the TempeEx site is unique, they all have a common "ex" that strengthens the culture of Tempe. The memory garden exposes the history of the site with walls on historical building footprints. The restaurant allows guests to experience the food-making process. The bar excites visitors with the revival of a historical calaboose, but with a new twist. Finally, the famous Hayden grain silos is exalted by a hotel that provides guests with a genuine experience of the historical structure and local milling processes.

Digital elements combined with luxurious materials give the restaurant a modern feel that is driven by functionality. The restaurant is a preserve of all that is good in life - magestic views, laughing with friends and family, and, of course, food, with high hopes of continuing the enjoyment for generations to come. 21 MIDDLE DINING AREA FLOOR PLAN BAR LOUNGE This project pushed design limits by tackling more than just the normal issues of aesthetics and functionality. For a profit-driven restaurant, profitablity became a huge driving factor. Research showed that most people, when eating at a restaurant, preferred booth seating or a table close to a wall, and usually chose not to sit at a table in the middle of an open space. In order to maximize the profitability of the square footage, the most number of tables were provided that mostly consisted of booth seating or table seating near a wall. ECONOMIC ECONOMIC YACHT ACHT CHT MANCHESTER GRAND HYATT HOTEL PROJECT - SUMMER 2011 SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA Drawing inspiration from the sea, the proposed designs for the Manchester Grand Hyatt pay tribute to the rich yacht culture of San Diego and transform it in a modern way, with additional inspiration from the clean lines in high end fashion design. Three concepts submitted to the client all support this idea. First is the yacht-inspired guest room that is most directly related to the general concept. The second takes its shapes and forms from the Coronado Bridge, a yachting landmark of San Diego. FInally, the third submitted concept is drawn from the beachy pier, where multiple activities related to the sea take b place. As an intern at WATG, I participated in the concept and schematic design phases of all the guestrooms and guestroom corridors, as well as the design development phases of the standard guestrooms and guestroom corridors. My responsibilities for this project included designing presentations, rendering drawings, picking out materials and furnishings, and connecting with vendors.
