Waiting time doesn’t have to be Empty time. Waiting could be eating, reading, playing or learning.

The community could spend their waiting time engaging in various activities in a ferry terminal. The terminal could be a nexus for transportation and cultural exchange.

Interim Urbanism Habitation of Immigrant Workers In The City, Rooselvelt Island, NYC Columbia GSAPP Advanced Architecture Design Studio Critic Nahyun Hwang & David Eugin Moon / Partner Yifei Wu / 2016 Fall The studio considered the architecture of the stay, a working term that acknowledges the underexplored concept of a genre of architecture and urbanism that describes a spectrum of temporary habitation in all of its forms and intricacies. From the makeshift homes of refugees to the fragile autonomy of homeless Tent Cities, permanence and belonging are

suspended and pursued at once. Sometimes as fortressed as the “commune of the Waldorf Astoria Hotel or as fleeting as the instant families found at the shared kitchens of WeLive or Common, the spaces of the stay are often disposable, yet necessary utopias. The stay is interior urbanism and state monumentalism. The stay is “in the meantime.”


Urban Integration Though the island is rather isolated to the surroundings at present, it gradually develops to a more open and accessible area in NYC. As commonly demanded, the bridge will act as a connection for the island with the city. A simple linear and straight form in geometry as “horizontal skyscraper” has been chosen to better declare its “monumental” identity. Queensboro Bridge

The Institute is a place for experimentation on campus, where traditional institutional boundaries disappear. That leads to academic programs focused on domains of economic need, or “hubs,” instead of disciplines; a postdoctoral program aimed at turning research into startup companies; and the introduction of commercial models for the monetization of intellectual property (IP) to drive university innovation.

Social Involvement

Industr y: Newly immigrants could settle down better if job opportunities requiring basic skills are provided. The industry line is also integrated with industrial tourism, providing chances for the public to be involved. Drive way: to provide basic transportation for the island connecting to the city. In the meantime, it is interesting to combine the drive way with line of production, which both are linear shape. Boarding lanes for vehicles and boarding harbor for ships are provided for transport raw material and products.

Roof top is a green space open to the public not only as a walkway but also a scenery spot. As a "green path", it try to challenge what a bridge is and defines a new one. Cornell has a long history in Agriculture and it has a department researching Sivilculture in NYC. Immigrant workers could work on the roof top for test-field and gain experience. It is a great chance for the Cornell and workers to exchange know-how, as one is related to hi-tech industry while another is more related to hands-on work.

Not like Queensboro Bridge next to the project, the building has several touch down places besides the two ends, which provides people with more possibilities to explore the island and the bridge. In this way, although the Cornell campus is relatively private, the island is still open to the city in an active way. The involvement of the public is achieved not only by the programs, but also through the design of landscape. Diverse activities could happen under the "Big Void" of the bridge, where is the terraced lawn and also acting as an amphitheater.


Middle Touchdown Different well designed “Moments” represent distinct attempts to communicate with the surroundings. In the middle part, the simple straight bridge is flying over the Roosevelt Island. At this cross points, something should

happen here. “Interim Landscape” as an agent between the bridge and the Cornell campus, is waving in landscape shape, rising up like trying to touch the bridge or going down responding to the “Big Void” of the

bridge. Diverse activities could happen here in the cave of the hill and on the terraced lawn which also act as an amphitheater.


As a proposal of a new "bridge", new scenes established for the new comers, to connect Manhattan, Queens and Roosevelt Island. The visibility of this “Horizontal Bridge� means the immigrant workers are no longer hidden populations. The drawing presents the overview of the whole bridge and five critical moments that constitute of diverse public programs like forum, amphitheater, tram station etc.

Recom - Gas Station Gas Station Design, Chelsea, NYC Columbia GSAPP Advanced Architecture Design Studio Critic Dan Wood & James Wines / Individual Work / 2016 Summer New York City is running out of gas stations. Two of the last downtown gas stations closed last year on Houston Street, leaving only a single station south of 23rd Street. With the advent of electric vehicles and driverless cars, gas stations are also changing – not to mention all of the economic, political, and environmental baggage that the oil industry carries with

it. We will combine the gas station with other programmatic elements, such as parking, a car wash – and public space, imagining that this will be city run and operated in order to counter market forces which are the primary reason for the downtown gas stations’ demise.

Decomposing is the critical thought in this project, through which typical gas station could be viewed as different components joined together. The typical gas station includes the components of canopy, columns, convenience store, pump islands and several gas tanks as well as sign boards and logos. In my transformation, the canopy becomes an occupied space not only for sheltering but also for food, water, and green space open to the public, which enrich the program

This enclosure is spatialized to include basic services like a store, virtical circulations and carwash. Tanks are organized in specific area underground. A rainwater collecting system can be a good view for dining area on canopy floor and car wash on the ground floor, which importantly acts as a bridge for cars and people sharing in one integrated building.

Temporal Geometry - Sunlight Study

Light is the origin of all being. Light gives, with each moment, new form to being and new interrelationship to things, and architecture condenses light to its most concise being. The creation of space in architecture is simply the condensation and purification of the power of light. Tadao Ando

Spiralling School School of Architecture Building, SCUT, Guangzhou South China University of Technology Critic Miao Jun / Individual Work / 2013.03-2013.05, 8 weeeks Educational building requires students to communicate and share their ideas with each other. Particularly, spontaneous communication is most active and liberal, which could share comments and spark inspirations. Obviously, traditional slab system is not an ideal one to support spontaneous communications. Therefore, it is

vital to explore new system, in which circulation increase chances for interactions and connections between functional space and circulation space. The design focus on the spiral long ramp along with short circus to propose the school of architecture building in which students tend to have more spontaneous communication.

Sharing To Learn Future schools will highlight communication and idea sharing among students. Particularly, spontaneous communication is most active and liberal, which could share comments and spark inspiration. Obviously, traditional slab system is not an ideal one to support spontaneous communications. Therefore, it is vital to explore new system, in which circulation increase chances for interactions and connections between functional space and circulation space. The design focus on the spiral long ramp along with short circus to propose

the school of architecture building in which students tend to have more spontaneous communication. The spiral long ramp encircles the atrium and they share the large space, which provides transparency and easiness to catch sight of others. Besides, the circulation supports convenient accessibility. Therefore, using the circulation, students consciously or unconsciously participate in interactions among different groups of people.

Calligraphy Chair

03 Calligraphy Chair

Art of Objects Elective Class, NYC

Gsapp, Fall The design is inspired by the2016 movement of writing Chinese characters. The different effects (darkness, size) of strokes seem decided by the amount of ink but actually is because of the pressure of the brush and the gesture of holding it, which suggest the writing motion. The design attempts to find a way to transform the strokes into tangible three-dimensional artwork -a rocking chair. The movement of the chair represents the motion of writing, which provides both functional and conceptual way of reading this art piece.

We accept the banality of most everyday objects. We are lost in the ordinary. FOOD — The food industry is deceptive. We decode the words of colorful packaging, to uncover pernicious additives and genetic modifications. Everything is deception. FLATWARE — The form of each utensil is derived from that of another. The knife looks like a spoon, the fork looks like a knife, and the spoon looks like a fork. The illusion questions the cliches of cutlery, and our choices of what to eat. 3D Print Products

SPEED — Faster stokes take on more gradual curves, but also more perfect ones. Speed can be witnessed by studying calligraphy, even though the charcter on the paper is static. SATURATION — Not every mark leaves the same about of ink. Brush hairs deposit more or less in depending on their angle, speed, and spread. This results in a rich texture that has a gradient of consistency and density. Moments Capturing
