This strategy allowing the design to have skylight in the center core of the building.


This project is located in Downtown Champaign. The city of Champaign has many buildings dated from the early 1900s. The objective of the urban infill project is design a mixed-use commercial and residential building. The classical building in the city of Champaign are typically red bricks or grey limestone. The concept of this design facade is accomodating the pallete of classic Champaign city building instead of pulling away against it.

INTERLOCK IN THE CITY - Mid-rise Residential : 15,000 m2 : Residential : Chicago, IL. USA : June 2011 Third Year Project 9 Weeks

This project is located in Downtown Chicago. The city of Chicago is famous as the Wind City, as the temperature is extremely cold or extremely hot and windy at the same time. The city’s population is 2.7 million and consist of working class citizen. Today, Chicago is home to one of the first steel-frame building and the notable Willis Tower with 108-floors which was built in 1974. This project site is located slightly north of “the Loop”, Chicago’s financial district, in the intersection of Lassalle Street and Chicago Avenue. In this project, students were expected to design a mid-rise residential tower and understand the basic principle of designing a midrise building in the city. During this process, the International Building Code (IBC) was implemented to the design regulations.

This project is located at Nørreport Subway Station in the city of Copenhagen, Denmark. The summer program in Copenhagen was part of University of Illinois study abroad program in conjuction with the School of Architecture in University of Copenhagen. During the summer, students are expected to learn the socio-culture and its relation to the build architecture, specifically in public transportation.

THE GATEWAY - University of Illinois Willard Airport

Air-frame and Power Plant Instructional Facility (APIF)

Project Size Building Type Project Type Location Date

: 10,000 m2 : Hangar : Educational Center : Savoy, IL. USA : December 2011 Fourh Year Project 15 Weeks




The project site is located in University of Illinois Willard Airport. The University of Illniois has held all of its Aeronautical Engineering class in this private airport. Currently this airport is no longer use for public usage but only for the purpose of learning facility.

Location: Savoy, IL USA

The objective of this project is to design an instructional facility to provide practical and theoretical training for future air-frame, power plant engineers and maintenance personel at the new hangar and classroom facility at Willard Airport in Savoy. The concept of this design is to distinguish between the users of the building and the facilty personel, and the degree of hazardous to less hazardous access restrictions for the facilty users. Security and accessibility are exteremely important in the new instructional facilty. Frequent user requires private and secured access throughout the facility. At the same time, the facility also welcomes beginners and newly trained maintaenance personel. With these in mind, the facilty will need to provide a safe environment for both audience with different degree of access.




Concept Diagram Centralized access for the user is provided and can be recognized by the wider hallway that acts as a “boulevard� of the main circulation. The degree of hazardous area increase as one progress from the entrance to the hangar. The wider the boulevard, the more human hazardous it is. The skylight above the boulevard provides a natural daylight and accentuate the main path.

Structure The hangar is design to have long span structure and parallel chord trusses that are most beneficial for this concept. This structure system is carried throughout the facility, therefore, ease the construction process.

Floor Plan In between the four sequence of dangerous zone, an interior courtyard is covered with glass roof and small garden. This also acts as a check-point for people will more access to the high hazard area. Visitors will require to have a proctor to guide them to the hangar spaces. When passing through the shops, visitor will have uninterrupted view to the shop area and the personel also will not be bothered with safety of the visitor.

Connect to heat pump for HVAC system and plumbing Underground watertank, collect rainwater

Heating and Cooling System (HVAC) This facilty will have a decentralized heating and cooling system. In addressing sustainability issue, rainwater will be harvested and store in a water tank underground. The rainwater will provide necessary water for building maintenance. In addition to that. the harvest water will also be pumped into heat-pump to the air-handling unit. The heat pump will provide heat and steam that will be necessary for heating and cooling of the building. By having three water tanks with three separate pumps, it will be much efficient to generate heating or cooling to different part of the building especially when the hangar door is opened. During the summer months, the window is design to be operable during the day. The decentralized exhaust fan will vend out hot air directly out, preventing it to travel to the other rooms. Also the water storage on the bunker will alow the floor to cool down from the hot temperature. Hot air (vend out through fan)

Decentralized systems works independetly from each section of building.

Wood Slats covering high sun

Building Envelope Design This ‘steel fins’ are design to be operale from the interior to manage the amount of sunlight entering the building. During the summer months when extreme heat from sunlight is not favorable, users can adjust the fins to minimize daylight to enter. In addition to that, the wood slats on the horizontal top of the fin structure provides covering from high sun to prevent direct heatload of windows. During the winter months, when users need more sunlight to heat the building, the fins can be adjusted to horizontal or at a 45 degrees angle to allow more sunlight entering the building.
