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.

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.

/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.

#Less Trouble#

#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.

#Solving Problems#

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.

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.

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.

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.

Guangming New Town locates on the center of the gz-sz-hk CRH line geographically, while its economic value is at the lowest point of the value curve. Therefore, the government should support the introduction of “green industry”, to promote cooperation between industries and CRH station, enhance the function of CRH innovation industry and to expand the effect of the window role.


· guangming hub airport model - Connetion with surrounding area by passageways, Integration with transfer, landscape, city life and widows of Guangming.

hill Airport Model, ie. all means of transport intersect and interact in a complex (eg. airport). Three-dimensional transport system allows all the traffic flow to effectively gather and interact in a hub area, including logistics and physical distribution. guangming hub

*this draft was completed by the workshop.

pedestrains CRH light rail

Walking system across the CRH station can reduce the negative segmentation effect to the land on both sides, creating a good pedestrian commercial space and public space for the urban.

metro parking greening methods

The realization of interaction between CRH, light rail, metro, and slow system (bicycle + walking) are available through the hub rapid internal transfer in the vertical hub. Besides, it can keep a good link with the surrounding, also the landscape and green space and the hub area together, so as to become a radiate area.

An integrated and developed walkway system was built in central, connecting with buildings, blocks and stations etc seamlessly.

The revolutionized, energy-saving and time-saving ULTras (Urban Light Transit) have been used over 3 yrs in one of the busiest international airport - heathrow .

In condition of landform, the city of mountain is the first one that operated light rail and tram in mainland china.

/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.

GALLERY

Besides the projects I took part in over past 4 years, I’ve also shown interest in photography, graphic design and travelling in my free time. 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. In this gallery , I select some works I did in the past, some of which are practice/intership work from the studio i joined in year 1 and year 2, some of which are course works and others just i loved to do so.
