WALKING WITH COLOR TRAFFIC ISLAND
Fundamental to our approach has been a deep and ongoing conversation with the Providence community about the needs of Trinity Square and the role of design in improving the neighborhood for all its residents. It goes without saying that cities can no longer be designed purely from the comforts of the studio, and we have come to recognize through many months of meetings,presentations, and discussions, that a sketch has as much power in its ability to catalyze debate as it does to set forth an aesthetic vision. It is a process of a team of RISD Architecture and Landscape Architecture students in their efforts to formulate a version of this other city. To that end, the concept designs that have been produced will be developed in further detail over the Winter and begin implementation in Summer 2016.
Community outreach is one of the most important part for this project, during the whole design process, our group is keep in touch with the community members, ground workers, government officers and policeman to improve our design to be the one that could work the best for them. The final presentation is an event and welcomes residents and community members to participate in, we decorated the site in a abstract way to show our design proposal and invite them to our programming space to have activities.
STREET PAINTING & GREEN ISLAND Rendering coordinate: Jingyan Zhang
In our team, Iâ€™m working with Nandi Lu and Senbo Yang on programming Boulevard section and provide landscape stratege for the whole team. The main strategy here is to provide vivid landscape by mixseeding colorful native species. People will enjoy diverse colors during different seasons, entire color scheme for our site.

HALF OF BOSTON WILL BE FLOODED AT 2050. 100 & 500 YEAR FLOOD & FLOODED BUILDING 13
Boston seaport area is a landfill area with ocean view and low site energy, it connects Boston downtown area and South Boston area. This project is layering wetland (flooded area) and living zone to establish a community for people to live with water. By lifting new type of residential buildings and roads, cutting ground in coastal zone, and adding open space, Seaport area will be a growing area. Landscape and living condition here will be changeable along sea level rising. Different water table will influence the space people use and the species grows there.
Almost 45% OF RAIN WATER will run off because of the HARD SURFACE.

PLAYING WITH TIDE
This project is a tidal park designed by re-grading the ground and constructing water edge. By stretching out and pushing in coastal line, people are able to play with water and plants in diverse condition. Due to the direction of tide, the new edge will be a protected harbor for vegetation and kayaks. Landform created by cut and fill also provide people with diverse experiences. In some places, their view are blocked when they goes down. In some other parts, they could walk up and overview the whole site and the city view from another side.

FLOATING WOOD DECK
Different materials are used on the north coast. Stone as paving to allow people walking along the coast; Gabion wall as retaining construction to let water come in and out; Floating wooden deck is placed to give people more possibilities to feel and play with the water and plants. It can be lifted by the tide so that people can always
walk on the water.

THRESHOLD/ PHENOMENA/ CLASSROOM
EXPERIENCING WITH THRESHOLD
This project on Tillinghast farm is to design an outdoor classroom based on the place with transition. Site exploration has three investigations: of ground, of phenomena, and of site spatial transitions. The site was chosen based on those investigations. The top of hill is the point that has dramatic transition with topography, hydrology, vegetation. The outdoor classroom is designed by emphasizing the threshold by cut a steep slope, planting seasonal changing trees and adding materials. According to existing circulation, same materials and design method are used in an implicit way to give an entrance for people to go to the outdoor classroom.
SOIL STUDY Dig into ground to see the composition of soil at different locations on site. The soil horizon model represents the layers of ground as they change from the surface to a depth of 8 feet below this surface.

Walking along the section, we can see the changes from the small sketches from the upland to the beach. The ground transect model represents the change in surface topography, vegetation and the hydrology condition of the section.
PROGRAMMING OUTDOOR CLASSROOM + ENTRANCE Cut a steep slope near the new threshold. Plant different species of trees under the slope, let people on the top touch the canopy and see seasonal changes during the year. They can also see through the grove to have a ocean view on the top.

MATERIALs and STRUCTURES make the slope become the most attractive point in site and people can walk on different elevation to experience more. The stones on the surface indicate the contour lines and also show the angle of slope through the combination of vegetation. Classroom Perspective

TOUCHING WITH BODY
This thesis project is about intera usersâ€™ perceptions of their enviro which people perceive space.
The hypothesis of this project is t It is developed by studying the de the main factor because and start
acting with the real world. In particular it questions how haptic experiences can be developed in an urban open space in order to alter onment. The project starts off by exploring and defining what haptic experiences can be, as well as how sensation influences the way in
that people will be aware of the physical world they are walking in through the changing temperature they experienced by haptic sense. efinition of haptic sense and the factors that influence the way we perceive information by haptic experience, I chose temperature as ted to test how to form peopleâ€™s perception of changing temperature through haptic experiences.
Farragut Square is located at northwest Washington DC, right next to the National Mall and many traffic stations. It is a connection point for DuPont Circ and engage within. At present the site it has lots of people passing through it every day. However, it doesn't allow many ways to access the site itself or e restricted to a linear pattern or stops at irregular points. It is popular because of its convenient, central location rather than its spatial quality.
As a popular open space in an urban setting, Farragut Square is a relatively flat space. It has a slope in topography; however, the surface of the slope d and that is surrounded by a fence, making it difficult to access.
cle and Lafayette Square in the National Mall, which makes it a popular urban public space for tourists, residents and passengers to pass through engage with it once on site. There are only benches, lawn areas, trees and a memorial statue on the site, and the way people move in the space is
does not have much variety. As the cross section shows, the only touchable surfaces are the areas of vegetation, benches and the figurative statue,
TEMPERATURE &TEXTURE OF MATEIAL FOR HAPTIC EXPERIENCE During the site visit, I used a temperature recorder to measure the temperature of different material surfaces in order to relate them to how the user was feeling on the circle diagram. It is apparent that natural materials like grass and leaves are cooler than the constructed materials such as the wooden benches and granite pavements on site.
SUNLIGHT & MOVEMENT MAPPING Based on the observations recorded on site, people's movement is related to changes in temperature, especially in relation to shadows. On a sunny day in late spring, more people would like to stay within a shaded area. The study of sunlight hours for the whole year is overlapped with the mapping of people's movement.

GRAPHIC DESIGN & EXHIBITION Groupwork with a 12 people team. An opening exhibition in the new gallery of RISD Design Center. How is creativity as a product, process, and idea marketed and sold in the institution? How is it commodified and how do as students and artists contribute and participate in the market? ROI (Return on Investment) explores and critiques what it means to learn, practice, and perform art and design in the corporate capital. How do we engage with, participate in, and contribute to a market that commodifies creativity? Where do we stand in the economic cycle of the creative capital?
BLACK& & WHITE FILM PHOTOGRAPHY MONUMENTAL DAILY LIFE -Sublime in landscape with human being's intervention but without people.
PAPER MAKEING & PRINT A four-week course that includes a ten-day paper-making workshop at the Awagami Factory, and a two-week in-depth study of historical sites and artistic collections of Kyoto, Nara and Koya San. Activities also include visiting Kabuki theater, Noh theater and Puppet theater, attending tea ceremonies and participating in Awa dance performance. Students learn to appreciate Japanese art and culture through the personal experience.
PAPER PROJECT DESIGN After learning all process of hand making Japanese traditional paper in Japan, I used the paper I made and designed this "onsen" (hot spring) scene. It is made by lots of different layers, for the onsen, layers of paper gives different transparency and texture of water, as for the stage part, I layering stones, ocean, cloud, pine tree and mount Fuji to give a vivid view from 3 dimensions and also provide spaces for people to move and act.
