Habitable Observatory A site-specific curitorial proposal Fifth Year Thesis Design Studio Instructor: Wei Tseng Site: Taichung Harbor Winter 2015 "When comparing land art with a sudden rainfall, as if they are both connecting human and the world through sensibility. Through this heavy rainfall, we feel like we were part of this orb." - Meyer Strauss Consider Taichung Harbor as the site; a post-industrial landscape. All the manmade objects spectrum from tiny human scale to gigantic machine scale. We can no more sense the land through our human body.Taichung Harbor is also home to a power plant that emits more than 37 million tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere each year, the highest of any plant per capita through electricity generation than any other nation. The thesis design is to create a habitable observatory, placing on the 500m-long boundary of the coal storage. The mechanism of building the observatory is to install concrete string beam to the wind fence and enclose the facade with precast RC and brick curtain wall. The observatory is divided into 5 parts. First, the south wing entrance with long windows, framing the seaview into landscape paintings; the second part and the fourth part with no natural light, are for exhibiting and archiving non-site arts. Then the third section is a conservatory and living space for staff and curator. The last section on the north places a cafeteria and bar, the wide windows on upper floor reveal the sound and shadow of the giant wind turbine... "Conflicts between man and manmade landscape" /Collage Nothing is more beautiful than to be together.

2. Conveyor Belt A conveyor belt is the carrying medium of a belt conveyor system. A belt conveyor system is one of many types of conveyor systems. A belt conveyor system consists of two or more pulleys (sometimes referred to as drums), with an endless loop of carrying medium—the conveyor belt—that rotates about them.

As the decay of the power plant hardware, there was an opportunity to rejuvenate the "no man’s" land. In search of the neglected human scale, the main concept was to reform the site into a field of land art. From the perspective of aesthetic, and environmental sustainability, the design is to implemented an observatory on the edge of the coal mountain. The linear observatory was to become a multifunctional engine for civic activities and a shelter for power plant workers. 8

Discrete Flexibility Reforming the industrial office building as social housing Fourth Year Studio Instructor: Cheng-Luen Hsueh Site: Tatung Building, Taipei Fall 2014 Housing is a serious issue in Taipei, the crowded capital. Here, the young generations are the nomad. Due to the false real estate policies and unbalanced market, there is seldom affordable accommodation is the city, leaving the young generations moving around periodically.

The proposal is a renovation design for an office building, Tatung Building, 14 floors high, which is located at the last industrial zone in Taipei downtown. The encounter is the most important principle that can really improve spatial quality. Different level of public space providing the resident more opportunity to interact and share resource.

ISSUE

Much of the surface area of Taipei city has already been developed and optimal use will have to be made, therefore, of the space still available. Densification by means of reformed office buildings is an obvious option. The living space that is made available through compact and high-density building can ease the pressure on the housing market in an effective way. Residential tower blocks like a stone wall in the city, a social and spatial form of urban acupuncture.

Due to the false real estate policies and unbalanced market, there is seldom affordable accommodation is the city, leaving the young generations moving around periodically.

Hybrid program is a typical live style in Taiwan, in this design, the abundance of removable walls making different units a great flexibility to change the space. There're three different removable flexibility layout: "Input, Plug and Shuffle", creating specific living quality for skip-generation family, old generation, DINK, single, and the SOHO.

The proposal is a renovation design for an office building, Tatung Building, 14 floors high, which is located at the last industrial zone in Taipei downtown. The encounter is the most important principle that can really improve spatial quality. Different level of public space providing the resident more opportunity to interact and share resource.

Much of the surface area of Taipei city has already been developed and optimal use will have to be made, therefore, of the space still available. Densification by means of reformed office buildings is an obvious option. The living space that is made available through compact and high-density building can ease the pressure on the housing market in an effective way. Residential tower blocks like a stone wall in the city, a social and spatial form of urban acupuncture.

The first concrete social housing has been built on Koto island in 1966, yet the constructing quality were lower than modern standard. Until 1980s, Up to 366 units of concrete housing has replaced the traditional house. A lot of Taos have emigrated to Taiwan, in order to earn money to fix the low-quality concrete housing. Cultural identy and the willingness to come back home for the younger Tao is the most urgent task today.We tried to adress this and propose a modern yet primitive housing prototype.It is a part of the Tao material life cycle, and preserves the scale, building technique, and the attititude the Tao held toward the natural element such as wind, ocean, lanscape.we hope the housing to be percieved this way,it is an ever-lasting arable Due to the aging Tao societies, the remained traditional houses started to be abandoned.

"Urban Lavatory Project" is based on the idea of introducing friendly and spatial public toilet into Tainan , a historical tourist city, yet with poor public infrastructure. The main notion is to create a lavatory prototype for adapting all kinds of scale within the city, moreover, the lavatory has to be facing every direction, providing an efficient and friendly space for users. Renowned author Junichiro Tanizaki once depicted the experience of using the traditional toilet, "an enjoyable and beautiful daily chores as if singing praises to dark." The design of the lavatory intends to capture the essence of Tanizaki words, providing great lighting and breeze for users, while sitting on the toilet. The second phase of the core studio is to design the RC folding structure detail, as well as building up a 1:20 concrete casting model, simulating the real construction process.

Zhongshan Road, is a major arterial in Taipei. The road was built in Japanese rule period. It was called Chokushi kaidĹ?, which was the road leading to Taiwan Grand Shrine. Because of encountering the Keelung River and Jiantan Mountain, the political axis made two unwilling turns, gave in to the forces of nature. Zhongshan is notable as the commuting route of former ROC president Chiang Kai-shek between the Presidential Building and his Shilin District residence. Throughout the route(A RED CARPET), it is divided into express and local lanes,as well as various under pass. Providing ill experience for the civics. The project is recreate public realms directly on the road its self, owing the deeper meaning of the political (colonial) landscape. Offering a different perspective apart from their appearances. Through intervention and reprograming, I tried to represent my question of the value constructed by the System, and return the road to the citizens.

Taiwan was ruled by a succession of six colonial regimes in which outsiders controlled the Taiwanese people and their various ethnic groups. Colonial regimes are racist in their very nature and discriminate against the colonized, in this case the Taiwanese and their various ethnic groups. Moreover, these colonial regimes used 37 ‘divide and rule’ methods to control the Taiwanese during the history.

Taiwan was ruled by a succession of six colonial regimes in which outsiders controlled the Taiwanese people and their various ethnic groups. Colonial regimes are racist in their very nature and discriminate against the colonized, in this case the Taiwanese and their various ethnic groups. Moreover, these colonial regimes used 37 ‘divide and rule’ methods to control the Taiwanese during the history.

06 Sanlin Bay Urban Design Plan AECOM office work 2016-2017

AECOM Project Team: Wei Tseng, Anyu Fang, Crystal Tan, Che Shan, Janet Ju,Ashley Wu My Work: architecture drawing, massing design, system diagram, site plan drawing, guidelines documents, concept planning Spring 2017

As the city is much aware of the importance of sustainable urban development, the Government is now taking action to address uncontrolled urban sprawl and promote effective urban development. The site is planned to become an integrated development area that restores the ecological integrity of the green wedge and forging new connections to the Huangpu River waterfront for the people of Shanghai. The project aimed to setup a new urban development model exemplifying how the right balance can be achieved to ensure environmental, economic and social development whilst also celebrating local cultural identity. The core challenge was to restore the integrity of the green wedge structure while creating an urban design framework that provides for relocation housing and sufficient land for new mixed-use development that will be economically viable for the project investors. The resulting master plan was the winning scheme of an international competition which will steer the regulatory development plan and has become a model for a “compact city� urban strategy.
