The content of this portfolio presents the outputs of my eﬀorts and contribution to the projects hereby showcased. For credit purposes, diagrams, graphics and photographs of this portfolio are the results of my creative work. When necessary, remarks have been added (noted by “*”) , to duly identify each exception. Additionally : - Background of Project 1 is part of some academic training material in diﬀerent design-related courses; - Project 2 and 6 are still on-going, as they are professional and phased projects undertaken with the Shenzhen Center For Design. - Project 3 and 4 have been modiﬁed over the courses of 2014, up to implementation following its delivery. - Project 5 has been improved and adjusted as during my internship, I gained more experience relevant to this ﬁeld. - Therefore, except for Project 5 which has been enhanced before its delivery, other projects present the outputs as they were at the time of their completion, not the ﬁnal schemes by now.
Huiji, with a profound culture and splendid history, is the birthplace of Chinese culture and the Yellow River culture. The area was a ﬁeld originally and then became a selling center for the local real estate. In this academic training project, I was asked to redesign a community center for the neighbourhood and consideration of the current selling center is a not necessity . For the design, the Central Plains culture, Yellow River landscape and wheat ﬁelds, as core design elements are combined, to refabricate the site by a form of straight linear cutting and reshaping the terrain, so as to reﬂect the protection of the environment which witnessed the birth of the Yellow River Central Plains culture.

The 2nd Road is located in the southwest portion of the blooming CBD. In the early urban planning made by SOM, the 2nd road was designed as a shopping walk combining two public greening parks in the CBD. But nowadays, the 2nd road has become a parking lot with countless building debris, and is separated by hedgerows in width. Due to the disordered construction, there are signiﬁcant altitude diﬀerences between four sides of the road both in width and length directions. In this project, we summarized all concepts developed previously in the SZ+DAY and a workshop held by SCD, to apply those brilliant thinkings into pratice, so we set up a LONG platform along the street and other installations and solutions to revitalize and recover this walkway, so as to make it more vivid and available for the disabled and passers-by.

/BASIS STRATEGIES 1
walking area: supposed to be extended
option 1: fill the street directly
option 2: set up a platform
Early in 1998, SOM made an urban planning for block #22 and #23-1in futian CBD, where the 2nd road running through. They drafted outlines of arcades, buildings’ scale originally and put foward that the 2nd road would be the one and only walkway in CBD.15 years past,things changed, the 2nd road is chosen to be a experimental program for a workshop of renewal held by SCD and shenzhen government. And lately, this experiment will be carried out into pratice within 2015, therefore, more detailed design and implementation should be considered. In condition of level differences, option2 can digest the gap and preserve the green belt and trees and do not occupy the fire access furthest while option1 would destory the greening.
greening: should be preserved
/SPECIFIC STRATEGIES AND DESIGNS To digest all altitude differences, we set up a LONG platform so passers-by can easily walk across the street in width. As the street is occupied by cars now, we creat three cavities for cars ruined in various ways as the archaeological site, where people can rethink and sneer at the auto culture.
#Solving Problems# 1
Before the project put into implementation, we the workshop put forward 3 basic principles: # Solving Problems # # Less Trouble # # Fun #
#Fun# #Less Trouble#
Therefore, there are several designs to achieve our goals in the middle and east 2nd Road : Long Platform, can digest levels difference and widen the area for walking. Grid for plants, can reserve the intrinsic botanies and people can be more closed to greenary.
Car’s Achaeology Sites, as a exhibition for cars destoryed in different ways with stories the owners would share to us. Well Sofas, which is a space for surfaceman to maintenanc when it is needed, and provide social and recreation space for urban. Road-crossings Pavement, for the no-barrier pass.

In the west 2nd Road, the team designs a skinny road replacing the dull and still street originally. More trees are planted to oﬀer shelters for pedestrain, and bio-swale can collect stormwater so water can be stored, puriﬁed under the square and be reused as the fountain and waterscape above the square. Besides, the width of west 2nd road is reduced, which can provides a number of beneﬁts and the road is for ﬁre access only.

This project aims to convert a farmland into a leisure public place: one which digests agricultural material and tailwater from a sewage plant nearby, focuses on a healty site ecology and acts as a catalyst for community re-vitalization in the region and to be an environmental education base to the public. The main concept is to view the water as a revitalizing aspect and an essential part of the eco-systerm that humans rely upon. The project consists of interventions that enhance the local biodiversity and allow ﬂora and fauna to ﬂourish. We accomplish this by establishing four deﬁned areas that independently re-articulate and stage the qualities and potentials of the water in an urban context.

There are three wetlands in the border between shenzhen and hongkong, combining together as one of the most vital bird migration areas in globe. OCT wetland is based on circular economy and emphasizing the balance between human and nature. Shenzhen Bay mangrove park is designed nature-orientedly, focusing on preservation of botany. And Mai Po features nature research and education to the public. Therefore, we can generally conclude that there are three major metabolism strategies they apply respectively, materials metabolism for Shenzhen Bay, social metabolism for OCT wetland and the ecological metabolism for Mai Po.
Hong Kong Mai Po ramsar site
The selected site locates in the northeast of longhua new district - a promising and raising satellite town.And the park is an important part of the guanlan river revit programme. In the oﬃcal urban plannning, it will be surround by residential communities where are factories currently.
/FUNCTION DIVISION The public center ampliﬁes the guanlan neighbour center and the connections, recreationally, educationally and spatially.
i(s)lands eco. vertical-ﬂow wetland
I(s)lands are the most signiﬁcant zone. They are individually deﬁned and designed in order to oﬀer a broad range of opportunities of activities and physical exercises. The hydro. beds merge the vertical-ﬂow wetlands with the lake, oﬀering a prime habitat for creatures. Ecological vertical-ﬂow wetland is not opened for public to set foot in but we leave an only path for visitors to walk across and look around the scenes.

/DESIGN OF I(S)LAND
The new owners of lands can grow what they like or what will make proďŹ t for the environment and meet neigherhoodâ€™s demand. And owners can reshape the i(s)lands according to their wills as well. But construction is banned in the land.
Inspiration: life extending through and over the urban, and draws nature into the town.
Accessiblity: easy access to various recreation and active areas.
Relationships: optimal pedestrian and bicycle connections.
Water management: water is used as a resauce, collected, cleared and reused.
It’s a large scale planning project and a challenging task since the very beginning of the studio i joined. UTSZ consists of three postgraduate schools run by Peking University, Tsinghua University and Harbin Insitute of Technology; all these schools with rich but quite diﬀerent culturally background . This project focuses on how can the space of the UTSZ can be actived and make more proﬁt and eﬀective use, especially, can manifest the integration of schools through a replanning and improvement program held by the oﬃcal management oﬃce. Inspired by the dasha river ﬂowing through UTSZ and the spontaneity of water converging, the replanning will provide various scaled and integrative spaces for living and studying to meet the needs of the approximately 10,000 students who attend the three of the most powerful and inﬂuential universities in mainland China.

/CONCEPTIONAL DRAFT AND MASTERPLAN(core area) The original themes for the design stemmed from a process of water converging. A huge water drop dripped on the ground, and other small water drops attract and cohere each other, to be a river. Actually, the” huge water drop” is the square in front of library, and others are various spaces.
These renderings below show the vertically spatial design of the central of UTSZ- public space around library. The courtyards on the ﬂoor, inspired by the waterdrops, provides an amphitheater under shade for outdoor gatherings or a place to relax, study, and ponder while listening to the gentle ﬂow of water and pyschologically cool the body.
In another aspect, waterdrops are stand for institutes, schools and departments and their culture. They inﬂuence, interact and mix together.

Baishizhou, as the largest and crowded urban village in Shenzhen, is one of the most signiﬁcant and valuable objects in various ﬁelds of urban design and reseach in the city. The village is surrounded by the High-Tech Park, Oversea Chinese Town (including popular tourism destinations and high-end communities) and a golf court, which makes it a strong contrast with the rest of the decent urban environment. The destiny of Baishizhou is clear, to be ruined and rebuilt and renewed by high priced real estates and complexes. However, the struggle between villagers, landlords, tenants and the authority is endless and interminable.In this research and design, I tapped into the lifestyle and current spacial demands of the people living there, so as to put forward an improvement proposal and strategies by unitization for the village.

· When is your place comfortable? When is it uncomfortale? What is the problem?
· What would you want to change in your place? Do you like living in a tall building? · Do you like living without a courtyard? Is that important to you? What do you use the courtyard for? · Do you have family that live close to you? Is it queit? Do you have the right amout of privacy? · What is good in the Baishizhou? And the bad one? General Answers
W in Th do eW w or Of ld
· About house: most people think their place small but don’t like tall building, they don’t mind using the public toilet and bathroom. Anyway, I think the house condition should be improved in these respects. · About courtyard: most local express their strong fondness for courtyard or leisure area, and this demand always gets ignored in conventional plan.
Baishizhou,with a population of 180,000, covering 7.5 square km, includes ﬁve natural villages Baishizhou, Shang Baishi, Xia Baishi, Tangtou and Xintang. There are 3 metro stations and 3 inner branch bus lines in the village.
· About privacy: most people don’t mind share the yard with their neighbours or relatives. In fact, many of them live in such condition. · About Baishizhou: just like their opinion upon their places, they have to compromise on the economic situtation, ie the rent is the greatest advantage, very few of them pay attention to the environment problem and safety.

/CONCEPT MAP OF REDESIGN With the explosion of population, some phenomenon are unavoidable, such as emergence of high apartment buildings, which can meet the residential demand, even though villagers dislike them. So I didn’t try to avoid such problems, instead, I tried to rethink negative factors in a positive way.
/DEAL WITH FABRIC Fabric still is a very important hint for design. Since the emergence of tall buildings will certainly change the farcbic a lot, the project wont more loyal to the original farbic.

I picked up lines mainly based on the width, length or accessibility of a road or alley and I added more personal inclination and creation.

In order to create new pattern and to reconcile conﬂict among dark bulks or buildings, in this project, I choose grids as a solution. A grid is the simplest element, and has no characteristic. But when they interact with the old, irregular and massive fabric, we can get a new and special net. The network can contain any other diﬀerent elements in the next step of design. And all elements are added basing on the interpretation toward original fabric. So every unit can be the same, but the diﬀerence are also there.
/RENEWAL OF A BLOCK/COMMUNITY The landscape is based on the wastewater disposal systerm, which is imported from dashahe river nearby. Water is an essential element for our survival and it is becoming increasingly scarce. And in these units, it is more easy to create close neighborhoods and connections between people.

In the 12x12 and 6x6 units, it is more easy to create close neighborhood. Close neighbourhood is not only an important aspect of life in the village and alos a part of Chinese culture. People can hang up theri clothes on the roof garden, and say hello to their neighbor across their yard. This low amount of privacy is not a disaster to them, instead is a good opportunity for communication among villagers.

This is the conceptual model made in the open workshop of “Fusin: SCD+X”, one of the content partner program at the UABB Value Factory and is enriched in the deepen and further workshop “New New Town”. It is about the idea of MGC (Multiple Ground City) which suggested by Shenzhen Center for Design for the gateway area of Guangming New Town, where locates at the north west of Shenzhen, aims to built as a green city. MGC is a brand new city-making model, which raising mobility and infrastructural system above the natural ground for CRH(China Railway Highspeed)/metro/tram/PRT(Personal Rapid Transit)/bike/pedestrian, municipal pipelines and of cause the city life, avoiding the traditional car’s road-oriental, ground/underground-dependence city-making model which ﬂatten the land and damage the eco system at the beginning of implement of any urban planning claimed to be green or low carbon.

/EFFECTS OF MGC TO THE CITYSCAPE Scale problem - a challenge to the visual experience of citizens. Elevated lines and viaduct are large scale municipal civil engineering structures normally. Separating space - a threat to the city’s existing fabric. Carrying function of passage and proof, viaducts may cause stress on the farbic of area it stretch through. Pollution - a harm to the city environment. Viaducts could cause noise pollution, air pollution and vibration inﬂuence. Therefore, the space under viaducts should be planned and designed well, to make the best of itself and integrate to the cityscape.

It is so amazing to experience diﬀerent lifestyles in diﬀerent cities with diﬀerent people. Youth can fade away, but memories will not. I try to capture all beauties in my eyes. Moreover, I keep pratising sketches and other crafts.
