I am a Taiwanese urban planner. After studying in Taiwan and Singapore I chose to work in local government to understand the local needs and problems of urban planning. During these past few years, I have worked on various scales of projects and experienced the related professions of urban design and real estate. From this multidisciplinary learning experience, I find myself especially interested in urban design. I look forward to develop

Urban Sewing

Urban Sewing masterplan review in North district Team members: Sally Chung, Gary Lee, Yen-Sheng Wu, Ping-YI Hung

This project aims to review the masterplan of the North District, Tainan, for adapting the change brought by the railway underground project. The project resolves problems such as the unregulated developments, lack of green space, and poor traffic circulation near the surface rails. Our proposal is titled, Urban Sewing, a concept of reconnecting the urban green spaces and road networks to transform the district into a mixed-use community In half years’ mapping and researching, our team set up a masterplan, land use plan and its supported financial and implemental strategies. About the implemental process, we first propose to transform the existing railroad into a linear park and then integrate the surrounding green space to form a green network. After that, we activate the land acquisition and redevelopment to improve the district’s traffic circulation and its living quality.

Studio work 2016 Fall I Location: Tainan, Taiwan

Responsibility: legislation analysis, concept generation, diagrams, land-use plan

The district is composed of contrasting urban fabrics; Parts of its ill-utilized parcels of land and under-regulated built area limit the living quality. By adjusting these places, including the existing railway infrastructure, decommissioned military base, and the under-regulated built area, we can improve North District’s living condition.

According to the analysis, unregulated developments, lack of green space, and poor traffic circulation are the main problems. We proposed the following solutions with considerations of the finance and implementation condition.

Issue 2_low living quality in unregulated areas and low efficiency on land utilization

Issue 3_lack of green space, limiting living quality

Solution 1 road hierarchy_ by redeveloping according to the revised land use plan, a better road hierarchy is achieved.

Solution 2 mixed-use zone_by redevelopment, proper land use regulation and proposed road system, greater land utilization is created.

Solution 3 green network_ by changing ill-utilized parcels of land as local parks and by building the linear park, greater living environment will be provided


Issue 1_messy traffic circulation, lack of spatial hierarchy

The masterplan illustration shows a vision of the north district, Tainan in 2030. The linear park is built and spurs the surrounding urban redevelopment. A mixed-use and livable area can be expected.

Besides, we also aim to make a communicable report by designing figures and authoring essays that are more vernacular in order to let the public to be more aware and willing to participate instead of only professionals, as it has been a difficulty for Taiwan’s planning work.

Parkway Plaza Commercial complex development plan Team members: Sally Chung, Gary Lee, Ping-Yi Hung

This final studio project proceeds the “urban sewing” project, our training goal is understanding the perspective of the developer and familiarizing with the practical procedures of land and real estate development such as land acquisition, urban design guidelines, architecture plan and market segment analysis. The project’s site is 15,155 m2 and located 500 m north of the Tainan train station, near the linear park. We participate as the private developer who lease the land for 50 years and aim to develop a commercial complex. In our product portfolio, we will provide hotel for the tourists who want to visit city centre, and department store for North district customers who want to enjoy food, recreation and reading. Our building design is affected by the urban design regulation. Therefore, the building volume is cut and produce an inter-block pathway for connecting the surrounding public space. This design also provide a strength to invite the pedestrian form the park. The name “Parkway Plaza” comes from this identity.

The product portfolio is generated by detail studies of local retail market analysis. The architecture design is followed by the construction rules in Taiwan. The development is comprised of three parts: Service Hotel (6-11 West building), Recreation Center, (35), Living centre (-2-0). Beside, the parking lot (-2--4) provides for 500 car spaces and 1500 scooter spaces.

From project Urban Sewing to Parkway plaza. The holistic urban design and development trainning in NCKU is an overview of the system of urban planning, design and development industry in Taiwan. During the process of desiging the parkway plaza, I realized what different stakesholders needed, and as an urban planner, I should consider deeper about the multi-professional solutions.. This multidiciplinaty training maked me develop a strong interest to find more implemental urban planning strategies or plans with consideration of many practical detail. On the other side, I believe I aim to be a more sophisticated urban issue coordinater after finishing these projects.

I n [ / ] Out Place making_Street food in Berlin Fernsehturm Team members: Steven Chung, Chia-Che Hsu, Ping-Yi Hung

The goal of the project is designing a temporary food vendor in order to host street foods at Berlin Fernsehturm plaza. The plaza is 60m X 90m and lacks activity. The reason is it is in a superblock and under the monument building. We think the space is a negative void. The essential aspect of this “street food dessert” is the scale. In the current scale, people have to “decide” to “cross” the plaza, which means getting “out of” a building to get “into” another one; we therefore propose a semi-outdoor street food “unit” to blur this “no man’s land”, then we organize the site into many smaller patches with suggestive cues in the pavement; the designs complete each other in a number of ways.

[AC_CA] - Architecture Competition 2015 I Location: Berlin, Germany

Responsibility: studies, concept generation, section drawing, model rendering

We design the assembled unit. It can blur the boundary horizontally as people would regularly hop between the units, creating layers of spaces. The steel frame slopes feature serve to blur the boundary vertically as it would encourage people to venture between levels, they would also serve as a visual intermediate between the rail and the Fernsehturm’s sloping wings. At last, the created places echo with those aside it.

The street food unit makes up the minimum space and function as the serving area, the queuing area, and the dining area; resembling a typical food truck. The total area of the street food unit is 48 square meters. Various street food bloom all over Berlin, They can be categorized to following four types.

Display Area (Refrigerator)

3 Basin Food Sink (Cutting Board Area)

Main Cooking Area (Steam Area, Frying Area) Hood System Food Preparation Area Storage Area

Type1_looking for fun

Type2_sharing the space

Type3_congregating for more

Type4_belonging to Berlin

The most flexible. This is street food as its simplest, a food truck can go anywhere, anytime.

The mutual benefit draws the perfect match. More sets of menus makes more satisfaction.

The group brings out the festivity. A group of happy Berliners makes all kinds of fun possible.

The location becomes associated with street food, and enrich the street food culture in Berlin.

During the day, the units open up to form a plaza, lively and inviting.

During the night, the units close up to form a venue, engaging and relaxing.

The street food in Berlin have not only fed Berliners but also have created a street food culture; According to the following process, we work to invite this cultural sensation in our site and moreover, to develop its new space identity. we will make it happen by following steps.

An urban void

Cut to connect

Add in type I

The site doesn’t have a center and only serve to pass.

The rail cut the site into patches, and strengthen the connection between sides.

The units attract people, slowing and altering their path.

Add in type II

Add in type III

Add in type IV

The units cooperate to further enrich the space in front of them.

The units create a plaza within, a positive space allows more possibilities.

The units close in to form a venue, like a street food center.

Urban Design in Hu-Wei Research of urban design regulation in Hu-Wei Sugar Industry Style Zone Team members: Steven Chung, Chia-Che Hsu, Ping-Yi Hung

The project aims to research the new urban design regulation for Hu-Wei Sugar Industry Zone to regulate its revitalization. The Hu-Wei Sugar Refinery area was prosperous in the Japanese Colonial Period (1895-1945). However, most of them are currently unutilized. Therefore, its owner, Taiwan Sugar Company intends to demolish it and sale the land for real estate profit, but the local government expects to conserve the historical buildings and scenery. In this background, our team was commissioned by the county government to propose urban design regulations and masterplan for fitting both the Sugar Company’s and the government’s needs. We proposed a concept of “conservative development” to keep the scenery, conserve key factory buildings but allow new development in designated areas. We hope this area can be revived as tourist attraction or Sugar-theme outlet in the future. I was mainly engaged in the process of site research, masterplan drawing and urban design rule adjusting. The following figures are my work.

I was in charge of the site plan, in the north part of the sugar factory. The plan is designed under the consideration of a new esthetic area and preserve the old industrial landscape at the same time.

The layout of the masterplan is inspired by the context of railroad. Among the building, the conserved warehouse (colour white) will be revitalized as a museum. And new building vv(colour pink) which pertains the warehouses scale and style will become retail or workshop.

The existing condition like traffic entrance, flooding and old tree has being considered in the masterplan. Huge focus is on transport connectivity, the north side of the site has set two main entrance to ensure the pedestrian and vehicular circulation and emergency evacuation.

Nantou Regional Plan Research the boundary of “suburban area” surrounding Caotun Urban Area Dep. Urban planning, Nantou city hall I Location: Nantou, Taiwan

The project aims to update the Nantou Regional Plan and to define an 1 applicable boundary of “suburban area ” in order to mitigate the land management difficulties from the developments under the previously non-enforced regulations to prevent urban sprawl. The boundary is hard to define since it should consider both theoretical and practical factors. Proposing the boundary of the “suburban area” surrounding Cautun Urban Area is one if my cases. I combined various spatial data such as cadastre, the current regional plan zoning, and environmentally sensitive areas via aggregate analysis by Geographic Information System (GIS) software. The combined result and the proposed boundary is subjected to discussion by the department’s managers in Nantou city hall. The “suburban area” consists of buildings from varying degrees of legality. The majority of residential areas is evolved from mainly former agricultural villages and their subsequent expansions, with under-regulated and illegal factories and warehouses scattered within them. While setting the boundary for the “suburban area”, it is also required to categorize the areas by processes of spatial analysis. 1. Suburban area is an area which overlaps with the original regional zoning. It has the seperated land-use guildline and urban design regulation for fitting its unique spacial pattern.

Dep. Urban planning, Nantou city hall I Location: Nantou, Taiwan

Responsibility: GIS analysis, suburban studies

The “suburban area” boundaries are mainly composed by two cat1 2 egories, “Agriculture Village Area ” and “Development Area ”. 1. The area with farm and agriculture feature and will be financed by Ministry of Agriculture. 2. The area contain a lot of factories, warehouse. It should be considered as semi-urban area

agriculture village area development area existing urban planning area.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

select all legal agriculture village area (data from the previous regional plan)

select existing factories and warehouses (data from Survey of illegal but registered building)

select the actual built-up area and run spatial analysis (data from Taiwan digital topographic map)

Step 4

Step 5

Step 6

map the preliminary boundary by overlapping the above layers.

add the “agriculture area”, “building use”, and “environmentally sensitive area” to categorize the boundaries.

use the cadastre to define the precise edge of the boundary.

As my position, an urban planner stationed in the government, the hardest part of this project is setting the process of GIS analysis and coordinating with the department leaders.
