Hiroshi Museum 1

CITY MIRROR Location: Shibuya, Tokyo, Japan Year: 2013 Spring


This project is located in the Shibuya area in Tokyo, Japan. It is a museum for Hiroshi Teshigahara, a great ikebana artist and film maker who lives “in the future.” His contributions are mostly about humanity and society and some involve nature. Glasses are chosen as the main materials for two reasons. First, to show respect to an artistic way- “Montage” which Hirochi used often in his most famous films. As when the glass reflects the activities around (society) it can also transmit activities in the museum (spirit). Thus the two images are overlaid in the “Montage” way. Second, pure glasses and clean, thin structures represent the purity of Hirochi’s mind and spirit. Reflection

The artworks, thinking

The mirror, screen

The city, society

This project is another design of the former site. The former one stressed on the purity of the artist’s design while this one stressed on the abstraction of the artist. The triangle cuts are languages stating the sharp mind of the artist. At the same time, they are bringing natural lights into the spaces. Hiroshi Museum 2

COLLECTIVE HOUSING Location: Nansam, Seoul, Korea Year: 2013 Fall

This is a project aimed to improve residents’ quality of life while in a high population density situation. For Seoul, young people are renting places to live while some house owners thrive on the rent. They live together while in totally different lifestyles. Collective housing is a way to contain them both and make them “coorperately” live.

Origami Study

Paper as parameter. Paper is a “flexible material”—the ease to fold, cut, twist, and mass fabricate give paper an “immateriality” and “digital” property next to the flexibility in computational forms. The 1:1 scale model, named the face, is an architecture surface that was constructed at the end of the five day workshop. The Function of the surface is flexible—for example, it could be a table, chair, wall, ceiling, etc. The building of a 1:1 scale model pushed the limit of integration of digital tools and physical models, as several uncalculated forces like gravity, tension, wind, etc., added stress to the connection detail of the basic paper unit.


“In and Out� Library Location: Tianma District,Changsha, Hunan, China Year: 2009 Fall

This project is aimed to act as the information and culture center for Hunan University. It is designed as a library. The concept is to use switched diamond units to organize reading spaces, outdoor playing spaces and other functional spaces, so that people can get a feeling of visual continuity while occupying different spaces.
