SUSTAINABLE DESIGN IN A SLUM COMMUNITY(HYUMAT) IN KATHMANDU(NEPAL) UW LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE 702 STUDIO In Hyumat, doing laundry is not only a kind of housework but a social activity. Women do laundry together outside while chatting with each other. However, waste water after doing laundry, which is a large amount with acceptable quality, is dumped on the land even though the unreliable tap water supply is one of the main problems on site. So I'm committed to recycling laundry water by localizing the Laundry Water Reuse System that first being practiced in California. Considering residents' need for a greener community, more gathering space and some women training programs, I try to create a space where people can do laundry, irrigate greenery and have training programs like biodegraded soap making. Soaps are made with plant product grown with laundry water and can be used to wash cloth to make sure the waste water is safe to irrigate.
Also I tried to make a connection with my folks products. Boo's rain water filters offer treated fresh water to wash cloth; people can be trained to produce Xinyu's planter in the outdoor classroom.

Our group members in Nepal hold a community meeting with local residents every week to summarize the main demands of residents on the community landscape. In Hyumat, doing laundry is not only a kind of housework but a social activity. Our Nepal folks usually saw women did laundry together. Treated rainwater can be used for laundry, watering other planting ponds in the community, and making lye that is essential for soap making. Residents can learn to use the planting products growing by waster water to produce their own biodegradable soaps and bring them back for future laundry use.

REDESIGN OF U.S.-MEXICAN BOARDER WALL IN NOGALES UW LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE 507 STUDIO This art installation is located at the US-Mexican boarder wall in city of Nogales, AZ. Its main purpose is to remember the people who died on the way to the United States across the wall. At present, most of the art works related to this event are concentrated on the border wall facing Mexico. Therefore, I hope that my work will attract people from both sides to stop and use this device to generate communication. Because this social problem is the result of the joint efforts of both parties. I do this in two ways for both the identified deceased whose names are known and anonymous ones. The first is to carve the family and given names of the identified deceased respectively on the ceiling above the US and Mexican territory. The other is to learn from a way of chanting of Buddhist believers in Tibet, using a rotating bucket combining the death-related plant -- marigold and other symbols in Mexican culture to create an interactive design that can be directly touched by people on both sides. 9

The soil is placed in the barrel wall. People can leave a candle or marigold representing deceased people for the forgotten spirits and rotate barrels to honor them.
INTERACTION The hollowed out opening at the bottom allows candlelight to be projected onto the wall, enriching the night scene. Can also be used to insert marigolds

INDUSTRIAL ZONE RENOVATION HINES COMPETITION Our site is part of the expansion of the Toronto's urban core beyond traditional downtown boundaries. Significant development is taking place east of the historic downtown and reaching the edge of the Don River. New, large real estate investments are being prepared for the areas adjacent to the mouth of the Don River and for industrialâ€?legacy properties. The task is to prepare a feasible vision for creating a stimulating mixedâ€?use transition area that uses and enhances the adjacent synergies and contributes to the future growth and reputation of Toronto.
Compared to create a place that may easily stand out, we pay more attention to the way surrounding environment and the city's development form this site. Through the analysis of context, we make all blocks and functions in the whole area more closely connected through this site by taking the advantage of the proposed future transit stations and existing green system. Our design will help activate and enhance the self-recovery procedure of the developing urban area where our site locates.

MASTER PLAN We weaken the unfriendly boundaries including fast lanes, railway and river channel around the site by strengthening the traffic links between our site and other blocks. Through the study of flood, we set up two flood treatment systems: the buffer zone along the river and bioswales on both sides of Broadview Ave.

SITE ANALYSIS In order to make all blocks and functions in the whole area more closely connected through this site, we analyzed our size from the following perspectives.

UNDERGRADUATE GRADUATION DESIGN The special feature of this site is that its east side area is almost under the high-voltage line, which makes it difficult for the open space to be used for purposes other than green space. There are now a market on site that are made up of temporary buildings selling flowers and pets. This type of market is one of the cultural symbols of the city of Beijing and has always been loved by everyone. And this temporary market is the only market of this type in the region, so I decided to keep it. At the same time, the farmers living around will sell fresh vegetables here every morning, causing fluctuations in traffic. Therefore, new designs must also meet this need. To this end, I designed a two-story commercial space, sandwiching the building between the two floors and making full use of the roof of the building. The rest of the site was developed as a sports field and a forest under the plank road, which was not shown here due to space limitations.

In order to weaken the high-voltage lines to bring people to the psychological pressure, the lower part of the high-voltage lines I will dig under the tower, allows the user to increase the distance from the power line.
The sinking square can be used as a temporary market place to deal with the fluctuation of the flow of people and the number of merchants.
The building is inserted into the gap between the sinking ground and the original ground as an indoor part of the market, including various facilities such as shops and coffee shops.
OFFICE BUILDINGS WITH COMMERCIAL AREA UNDERGRADUATE ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN STUDIO This is a multi-purpose complex with office and commercial areas. As a landscape student, in addition to the function and form of the building itself, I also focused on how to use the building to create outdoor space. In addition, I tried to incorporate landscape elements into the building, trying to create a public space that is semi-indoor and semi-outdoor. This can solve the sparse vegetation and high maintenance cost caused by the cold and dry climate in Beijing. The site of the project is a right-angled triangle surrounded by busy lanes in Haidian District, Beijing. Two of the sharp angles are the most difficult to deal with: it is difficult to make full use of it as part of a building or as an open space. I weaken the crowdedness caused by the acute angle by expanding the space around the acute angle.
