From my perspective, designer is an such unique job because it always pushes us to create new creatures under the boundary. Moreover, it allows us to do something creative and our design is able to serve people finally. And I would like to present my design in front of the people because design is the best way to express myself. On the other hand, I believe an excellent designer love approach the world and people 917-913-1783 chessemark@gmail.com www.issuu.com/chessemark

Culture Plaza For improving the user experience which is the project’s mission and goal, we design a space name Culture Plaza in the project. Culture Plaza is one of most the essential parts of the project. It is a platform for cultural communication. There is no doubt cultural communication is a great perspective to interest people. It is also the reason why New York is such a fantastic city in the world. In Culture Plaza, people are able to have seats and enjoy activities & performances. Moreover, it is a greatful place holding galleries and exhibitions.

Public Library Before design development, we did a survey about what activities people usually do before boarding. According to the survey research, most travelers would like to read books or watch shows on electrical devices before boarding. Public Libraries provide such a bright and comfortable seats and tables for people entertain themselves. They are also able to borrow and purchase reading stuffs here, and even mail package and letters before leaving for other cities.

Railway Cafe The Railway Cafe locates at Highline Bridge. The bottom of Railway Cafe is Time Theater. Inspired by New York Highline Park, we bring rail into the cafe and create the railway ceiling which is associated with the concept words ‘navigation’ Users who are on the bright can follow the ceiling railway to explore the bridge and get to next destination “Nap Inn”. On the other hand, the cafe provides a comfortable space for people communication which is promoting people get more interaction with each other.

High Line Bridge Inspired by the New York High Line Park, the project sets up a bridge connected Reception Lobby and Nap Inn. There is a cafe named railway cafe on the bridge. The bridge does not only provides a connection function, but it also creates a different perspective view option for people to explore. It is able to achieve the project goal which is attracting air travelers to get airport in advance before flight departure, reducing the issue of missing flights, and improving the experiential quality of air travel.
