The project, while a successful start, did not address all issues with the site. Parts of the river, the bridges that cross it, and the surrounding urban fabric still suffer from disrepair. The Seungyo Bridge and surrounding buildings needs an urban intervention to realize its full potential. The project will revitalize the arcades, creating a Ă RZ through the site that generates continuity through the city.

At the project’s completion, the site has been transformed. Redevelopment of the North & south Arcades proved to be effective in creating & demonstrating interactive public spaces while creating visual connections to the surrounding urban fabric, connected & accented by the development of the Seungyo Bridge. The newly developed twin pedestrian bridges successfully create visual ques & destinations, linking together the remaining microdestinations throughout the site through the use of the undulating canopy system.


SECTION BB

The three levels - stream, street, and bridge - are based off the scale of the human body to make it relate-able to users. The shades on the bridge provide a cool and convenient place to walk, and increased lighting illuminates the space at night. Many benches are provided to allow pedestrians to stop and rest. The conglomeration of all these elements creates a highly dense area that can provide for the needs of all users.

The bridge becomes a destination for the city, drawing people to the site. The roadway is narrowed WR D VLQJOH ODQH WR VORZ WUDIĂ€F DQG ZLGHQ WKH sidewalks, making the site more pedestrian focused. Vegetation adds a natural element to the site as well as helps clean and cool the air. Vertical circulation intersects with horizontal circulation to provide access to all parts of the site.

The three primary principles of movement cultivated be push hands practice are: •Rooting - Stability of stance, a highly trained sense of balance in the face of force. ‡<LHOGLQJ7KHDELOLW\WRÁRZZLWKLQFRPLQJIRUFHIURPDQ\ angle. The practitioner moves with the attacker’s force ÁXLGO\ZLWKRXWFRPSURPLVLQJWKHLURZQEDODQFH •Release of Power (Fa Jing) - The application of power to an opponent. Even while applying force in push hands one maintains the principles of Yielding and Rooting at all times. First Floor Plan

Pushing hands is a movemeny , where the entire body is functional and entire function has a body. The process of giving up yourself and follwing other to study the openents method of attact and prepare to respond. In simple words “ The movement of Following harmoniously and “Getiing backed up ”

The concept of the residencial block is to achieve a skyline.Green pockets within a group of buildings making the block feel secluded from the rest of the place. The green pockets of landscape act as a buffer from the main axis road.

HIGH SIGHT A watch tower


City of savannah is known for its history and preservation of building. The whole idea of preservation is visually limited by its height restriction. The main aim of this projective preservation was to enhance the character of the city and experiencing the historic district at different aspects. The city grid formed green squares at every intersection which acts as a great connection between the main historic district and its surrounding. The idea started with selecting different city squares which had historic buildings of different heights limitations. A tunnel like structure which is elevated above the building heights at every city square. The tunnel acts as a connection between historical buildings at different levels of the building. The connection was created to enhance the visual Impact of the city and experience.


A Grown-up’s Trash, A Child’s Playground. Designed for creative learners and problem-solvers ages 6-11, Movers & Makers combines imaginative building fun with exposure to math, engineering, and sustainable VFLHQFHFRORUIXOWRROVSURPRWHVSDWLDODQGÀQHPRWRU skills, allowing children to measure, mark, whole-punch, drill, cut, and transform unused cardboard into recycled hideouts, castles, rocket ships, and beyond…

Learn: • To think like engineers while having fun – children can work independently or collaborate and combine with other cardboard creatives! • Design and build unlimited 3D forms – visualize your structure and create it in your own bedroom! • Recycle everyday objects in your own home – building materials are all around! • Customize and decorate your space – cut, color, drill designs into your new structure

THE LITTLE WANDERER Industrial design


The least favorite part of a holiday is travelling , everyone love visiting new places and family but the day you reach your destination is not the right day to explore you. Making kids enjoy their travel is by making them feel like a superhero . Star wars is a movie that has existed for centuries and every generation can relate to the characters in the movie . Not everyone likes the good guy in a movie and thus darth vader was chosen. The character pillow resembled the shield of darth vader and acted as perfect travel pillow which supported the neck and head and sleep mask when required .
