关于我 ABOUT ME After graduating from Bachelor of Architectural Studies in ‘09, I worked in a local Brisbane office for six months initially, then moved to work for two (2) large architectural firms in Shanghai for 1.5 years. My Shanghai experience led me to develop value understanding of various Chinese projects, ranging from competitions, to mixeduse and residential projects. My strongest architectural passion lies with commercial and mixed-use projects with a strong focus on sustainability. I am an adaptable, fast learner with a perfectionist’s attention to detail proven in previous employment. I can handle computer roles at a high level with ease, also being able to contribute to meetings, team bonding and miscellaneous roles. Teamwork is something I really appreciate... I work hard to maintain a positive outlook at all times in and outside of work. My experience, understanding & network in the China market could also be a great bonus to the team. I personally contributed to 6 of the 7 competition winning projects in my previous team in 2010/2011 gaining strong insight into the diverse needs of Chinese clients. My existing network in China can lead to future collaborators and projects. Thank you taking the time to consider my sample folio, I look forward to discussing how I could be a great addition your team in person. - 唐琛 Chen Tang

Intern - Architectural Design and Research Institute of Tongji University (500+ employees) Shanghai | May 2010 - August 2010 My internship here involved many assistant tasks such as translation for presentation documents, image finding and analysis diagrams. The main project I worked on was a large scale design competition involving 2 x 300m towers under Patrick Lenssen. This was by far the largest project I worked on up until that day and it was a great learning experience to participate on the resolution a project that size.

ä¸€. 16 PIER - PHASE 1 Competition - 1st Prize ANS September - December 2010 Bund, Shanghai The competitive brief involved a modern transformation of an old pier originated during the early settlements of Shanghai. Our proposal includes three (3) distinct functions, each allocated to its own platform. The ferry terminal on the ground level allows for maximal efficiency and corresponds most successfully to buoy regulations. The second platform is an extension of the bund promenade but includes more green space for the public. The top platform consisted of cultural elements, restaurants and kiosks, provides shading for the second platform, whilst its plan is shaped to direct views towards architectural sculptures in Pudong.

č´ĄçŒŽ CONTRIBUTION I worked on this project as part of a newly formed competition team, consisting of three (3) members including myself. This was a great learning opportunity as I got to work senior architects on a very linear level.

二. WUHAN PUBLIC SERVICE CENTRE Competition - 2nd Prize ANS November 2010 Wuhan, China Having only two (2) weeks to complete the submission, very definite design goals were established early in the design. The aim was to uninhibit the proposal from conventional schemes. Being a Chinese government building, it had to convey power and strength, we deviated from the standard monolith structure and focused on a solution incorporating a low-rise structure that still could convey the same feeling. We set out to convince the judges with case studies of worldfamous government buildings. Our idea revolved around a powerful forecourt and mountainous backdrop, with a smooth organic modern form.

三. TIANJIN SHIPYARD Competition - 1st Prize ANS & Tandem January - February 2011 Tianjin, China 贡献 CONTRIBUTION The majority of the concept was done by Tandem over in the Melbourne office whilst the local team in Shanghai worked on the resolving the design to fit into chinese regulations. The biggest learning experience on this project was when I worked closely with both my director and James Murray (director) from Tandem over an intense two (2) days prior to the presentation. Whilst working closely with James, I was able to gain lots of new perspective into conceptual design as well as picking up some presentation ideas and techniques which I was able to use on latter projects at ANS.

ĺ››. 16 PIER - PHASE 2 Competition - 1st Prize ANS February - July 2011 Bund, Shanghai After the conclusion of the phase 1 competition, the clients acquired a further 3 blocks of land behind the 16 pier site. The brief was changed based on feedback from the government and now has to integrate the new acquired land. The design began from scratch but retaining key ideas from the first phase competition. After a series of meetings and feedback from the client the final design was realised. The new 16 pier would consist of only two platforms; the ground level still being the terminal (with a multilevel circulation system to the basement). The cultural and landscape elements are fused into the first floor creating a promenade extension from the existing bund with various public facilities and cultural motifs. Sky bridges and an underground plaza link the pier and buildings behind.

äş”. XUHUI PLAZA Competition - result pending ANS June - July 2011 Xuhui, Shanghai
Our proposal integrates commercial space, leisure space and green space into one concentrated area. Two architectural styles are transfused in the design. The old shanghai lilong facade found in the lower levels of the design creates maximum street elevation; thus more retail exposure. The upper level consist of contemporary open plan office spaces which can be subdivided and leased these spaces are interlinked via pedestrian bridges.
cover page illustration added context in Photoshop with illustrator effects over a very basic rendering
The proposal focuses on highlights five (5) key features: 1) a multi-functional square 2) unique key building 3) contemporary shopping street 4) intimate alleyways 5) active rooftops
