Bluffton New Center of Wetlands Research / Bluffton, SC The project is an integration of human, architecture, and nature: a wetlands research institue consists of dry and wet laboratories, study spaces, and a bunkhouse for students. The design is based on the concept of the water streams flowing through the wetland surface by the May River. The project also focuses on the structure, which is a dialogue between the vernacular construction and a modern flowing form. By that confrontation, the building not only blends into the landscape, but also inspires the inhabitants with a great sense of being within nature.

CELLULAR AGGREGATION Apartment Community Center / New Orleans, LA Water, one of the biggest natural elements on the earth has shaped land forms and human behaviors. In New Orleans, water and topography have shaped the community, culture and land forms for thousands of years. Therefore, water will be the primary force that drives this project. The project melds two generic building types: a community center and a 20-unit apartment housing to create a unique hybrid of spaces. The design is based on the concept of biomimetic design - intersection of biology and technology. Specifically, we biomimetically employed the dragonflyâ€™s habitat and morphology to apply it into the Apartment Community Center.
In 2005, New Orleans experienced a devastating catastrophe after Hurricane Katrina, which damaged almost all the canals, locks, and levee systems in and around the city. The hurricane lead to the wide-spread flooding (80% area of the city), loss of life, wetlands and collapse of the local economy and government. The Upper Ninth Ward is one of areas that has opportunity for future development in response to the loss from Hurricane Katrina. The project will focus on the redevelopment of the district with a multi-unit apartment housing and a community center for a year-round schedule of cultural, educational, and recreational activities.
The Mississippi River delta is a notable example of how the natural flow of water creates forms.
The majority of New Orleans is under sea level. Therefore, the water will run from the MIssissippi River towards north. Like the fingers of the river delta, the water moves and split in numerous pathways. In order to control the water and adapt with nature, the task is to create a system of bio-swales to direct water intentionally. This will then forms the footprints for the buildings. The water can naturally move without disturbing the forms.

Cultural Center / Hanoi, Vietnam The project focuses on creating a multi-functional center from an object chosen as the conceptual idea. The building has three non-orthogonal interlocking blocks, bringing new spatial experiences both inside and outside. The six-program operation provides services and activities for neighbors in all ages.
The site located in Hanoi, Northern Vietnam and in a small public park by a lake. The site is found in between the old quarter to the Northeast and the expanding city to the Southwest, thus it has significance in connecting old and new, tradition and innovation.

SCAD MUSEUM OF LIGHT Savannah, GA
The project unifies three programs: enclosing, opening, and observatory. The elevated closed spaces allows the opened spaces underneath and connects to the observation tower. Light has a crucial role in creating rich experiences for the museum.
BAMBOO INSTALLATION A group project focuses on an installation that imitates human movement and engages with environment around. Wind is a natural element chosen to interact with the installation.
OBSERVATORY An individual project of a small observation structure in the ruins by SCAD Museum to observe the landscape around and engage with the context in multiple ways.
LIGHT MUSEUM The project focus on designing a small exhibition and study center that enriches the understanding of lights.
Bamboo is the primary material. The structure must be self-supported by fasteners only. Vertical and overhead component are required.
Series of researched sketches and photos are documented for the site. Different perspectives and materials are drawn and collected to find potentialities for the design.
As a part of the context, the observation structure must have minimal impact to the site. At the same time, it must have interaction with its surrounding: the ruins, windows, structure, materiality, etc.
In the stage of design exploration, a series of three different approaches is created: form, orientation, and space / circulation. The observation tower is developed simultaneously through the process of sketches and exploring models.
Light study and programmatic massing models are important for the exploration of light, space, and architectural experiences.
The project focuses on the development of a mixused facility opening 24/7. The building, which has four stories plus a basement with different programs, is inspired by the urban design of Savannah.

Fundametal Architectural Study
A course includes small projects from using basic elements to explore the fundamental architectural space to the design of a simple program. The exercises aim to understand spatial relationships and achieve architectural qualities.
Professor Matthew Dudzik ARCH 223 - Architectural Fundamental Studio I Winter 2013
Moore House / Charles Moore Orinda, California 1962 The first exercise 3D concept model based on a plan has the purpose of understanding the fundamental relationship in a building.
Using basic elements to explore the degree of enclosure of architectural space.
This exercise focuses on the creation of space by exploring the spatial relationships between plan and section: hierarchy of spaces, column systems, and wall systems.
The revised model with new design of the main entry and primary pathway.
The next exercise focuses on making a tower that repeats the structural pattern system and relates to the old structure in term of scale and proportion.
The final exercise is the synthesis of previous exercises into a unified building: a viewing terrace. The waving pattern is used not only to provide interesting indoor experiences, but also to create a unique feature for the building.
PHIL HURD RACEWAY - CHARRETTE DESIGN Design competition / chosen project for semi-final The competition is to design a charrette in two days for a local toy racing club. The goals are being innovative yet friendly and affordable.

CIRCULATION The structure has two accesses from both sides for public and staff. Staffâ€™s stair can be used as emergency exit. A ramp is built for disabilities at the back.
This chair (scale 1:1) is made of cardboard, pins, and rubber bands. The digital fabrication is applied to the design to synthesize the form.
ARCHITECTURAL VISUALIZATION Fabricated and paramatric modeling Professor Jean Jaminet ELDS 330 - Visualization in Electronic Design Spring 2014 Professor Scott Dietz ARCH 414 - Parametric and Generative Design Strategies for the Building Arts Summer 2014
Series of small projects created by using Revit, Rhino, and Grasshopper. The aims of these exercises are to learn how to visualize architecture and interior design through digital prototypes. The projects also emphasizes fabricated and parametric design as they relate to structure and enclosure in contemporary architecture.
PERSONAL WORKS Architectural drawings
Observative sketching is a wonderful method to study architecture. Living in the city of Savannah brings me chances not only to practice perspective drawings, but also study about architectural elements in historical buildings. These drawings were made in different times while I was walking around downtown Savannah as a way to enrich my experiences as well as to recall memories of space, people, and culture of the city.
PERSONAL WORKS Hobby sketches and drawings
Besides architectural drawings, I also have a big hobby in railroad models and locomotive drawings. Sometimes, I draw animals, portraits, and objects around in various media to relax myself from the stresses of studios.
