Time-Shifting Space Degree Project Providence, Rhode Island. 2010 Space changes through time, and time shifts with space. A church converts to a library, a bank converts to a dorm, an opera house converts to a book store. Many examples can be seen in our daily lives. I am interested in how spaces and the function of spaces can be change through time. If programsa and spaces can react and response to time; not only it makes the space more interesting, but it also makes the space more usable. Combining different stores that have different open hours can maximize the use of spaces and hours. The first part of this project was to study the relationships of time and space in different buildings. A series of diagrams helped to understand the shift of program from time to time. The second part was to use the research and diagram to create something new from them.

examples of transformation Throughout my research, I was able to find several examples of architecture that’s been modified/transformed into new uses. One example is the Dominican Church. The church is located in Holland and was constructed in the early 13th century. The function of the this space remain worship space until its partially destruction during world war I & II. The church was vacant for decades. In the year 2001, a bookstore company bought this building, thus it was converted into a bookstore shop. The interesting part about this design is that all the bookshelves and walkways are giant free standing objects, as if they were giant “furniture” coexist with the

ancient architecture. It was a way that the architects express the respect to the history by not adding on new floors and structures that cover the existing. The new and old therefore can be easily identified.

smart way to combine 3 spaces into 1 without adding costs and use of land.

Lastly, I was looking for a function that’s changing in just a day. The gift shop in Seattle library that has an interesting approach Also, talking about functions of space change in terms of the condition being expressed and the use of space. By letting the movable through time, the OMA Prada Transformer crossed my mind. It is a very interesting shelving retract open/close, it announced its condition. This way the costumers don’t need architectural use of space that allow differa big sign saying “open”. Furthermore, when ent programs to happen.

maximize the use of space is

After researching the existing examples, I started asking myself- why combining more than one programs in one space, and what does it benefit us. I begun to look at several retail stores and restaurants, and I found out that most of them all have different peak times. One of the issues I found was that while they are not at their peak hours, the energy uses are wasted. For example, the lights, HVAC, computers, mechanical equipment and etc have to remain on- even if there are very few or no customers. Therefore if one were able to combine many programs in one space, and to shift program to program depending on their peak times, it is extremely environmentally friendly. Also this could save a great deal of cost for the client. 17

site- parks

The site is located in downtown Providence, Rhode Island. It is in a area that mixed with multiple land use. The two major zone adjacent to the site are commercial (retail) zone and residential zone. It is a good location for a bookstore/music performing/ coffee shop. The building was originally constructed in 1894. It is been a commercial use building, and is now occupied by a sports retail store on the first and second floor. The top floors are vacant. The building system is steel structure with concrete, and the exterior is covered with yellow bricks. The facade has interesting neoclassical style of

ornaments, and they are mostly composed by bricks and iron works. Right next to the building is a small park and a parking space. A two story high brick building used to occupied the park, but it was destroyed by a fire that occurred in the 1950s. It had been a vacant space since then. The city of providence converted it to a small park later in the year 2000.

program from interior to exterior, from a store to the city. An entry & facade can be relocated to the park side rather than the existing narrow and small street side. This way the program may be extended to the outer boundary of building, and make the exterior park space a park of the bookstore/ coffee/ music performing space.

I found this site has a lot of potential. First thing I could thought of was to somehow take the advantage of the adjacent park and connect the inner space with park, as an extension of the

ENYA Competition: Green Cloud New York, New York. 2011 Team Member: Eugene Chang, Ki-Seok Oh, Yunsuk Choi. ENYA Harlem Edge competition wanted to explore the redevelopment of the decommissioned Department of Sanitation marine transfer station located in the Hudson River at 135th Street. The site offers the opportunity to engage the local Harlem community with the waterfront, and echoes recent efforts by New York City to reclaim the waterfront for non-industrial use, as included Department of City Planning in its Vision 2020, the Comprehensive Waterfront Action Plan for New York City. Our proposal- Green Cloud Service is a compiling and distributing network of urban farming pod and food as a service rather than a product. Shared resources and information are provided to people and institution through Green Cloud Center. Also, it is a model for food providing services using existing public transportation systems such as bike path, water taxi, bus and school bus and it involves provisioning of dynamically scalable and sometimes virtualized resources through online. It is a byproduct and consequence of the lack of land for urban farming to provide fresh food. The foundation of green cloud service is the broader concept of infrastructure convergence and shared service. Green Cloud Service allows people to get their own farming pod to nourishing themselves and helping other people.

Green Cloud Center Green Cloud Center is usually located at the intermodal transit hub. It connects people and necessary resources faster, with easier access and less maintenance, and enables Green Cloud Pod rapidly adopted throughout urban environment. It not only provides food for people but also storage space for seeds, education programs and some entertainment space to meet the demand of people.

Green Cloud pod Green Cloud pod is a basic unit for urban farming. It is a small pod for farming but it is scalable and flexible in its combination. It is made of recycled materials like paper, banana leaf and glass. It can be delivered to home or can be carried like a shopping bag. existing building

7th Floor Parasite Providence, Rhode Island. 2008 Instructor: Brian Kernaghan The 7th floor parasite project is an interesting experience of biomorphic architecture/ interiors. We took the concept of a living parasite and transformed into a roof top architecture design. The programs of the spaces are school classrooms, and studio spaces. At the beginning of the semester I did researches on the Phoradendron, also known as mistletoes, and I studied its forms and system. I was not only mimicking the form, but also the process from this creature. The interesting about this parasite- unlike many other parasites in the world, it doesn’t kill its host by stealing energy from them, but living peacefully with them. This character matches with the concept of this add-on architecture on the roof top. It also shared the existing building system ( Stairs, HVAC, and etc.) , and structures from its existing host, but at the same time it is living with them. .

Site- Downtown Providence

The site is located in Providence downtown, RI. It is in a zone where many school buildings are located. The host building is an existing educational building of RISD. The department of Interior Architecture is looking for expansion of classrooms and studio space. The 7th floor roof top would be a ideal site to construct a new educational space, which is highly accessible to the INTAR department below. The department is required a large 120 desks studio space, 4 classrooms, 3 small staff offices, 1 small auditorium, and break areas. The adjacency of these space should be logical and it has to follow ADA and Fire Codes. The new building is also considering sustainable design, nature air ventilation, heat gain & loss, and therefore sun shading and the site orientation is playing a big roll for the design. 80

Concept Sketch

Phoradendron is a genus of mistletoes. They usually can be found in the warm temperate and tropical regions of the Americas. The plant has only little water and energy needs, which are taken from the host tree. Different species of Phoradendron tend to use different host species, though most species are able to utilize several different hosts. The flowers are inconspicuous, greenish-yellow, 1-3 mm diameter. The fruit is a berry, white, yellow, orange, or red when mature, con-

taining several seeds embedded in very sticky juice; the seeds are dispersed when birds eat the fruit, and remove the sticky seeds from the bill by wiping them on tree branches where they can germinate. These sketches are base on my observation of researching the parasite. The interesting thing it is that the parasite itself is very inconspicuous, however the fruit of it is very colorful and shining, in order to attract birds to spread its seeds. The col-

orful fruit are like classrooms in this space. They attract students to go inside learning design knowledge. And afterwards they spread their knowledge to outside world.

A series of sketch models were made during the process. It was placed on the site model to study its scale, form, orientation and etc. During the sun path study, I learned that the architectural exterior shading is required for the east and west sides of the building. And openings for natural ventilation are also very important.

American Pavilion Shanghai, China. 2009 Instructor: Hansy Better I took an Architecture design studio while studying at RISD. The topic for this studio was to design an American Pavilion for the Shanghai World Expo 2010. My main concept I have is to “unfold USA”. After 9/11, the country has become vary “closed”, in terms of its attitude towards immigrants and foreigner’s policy. I want to use”unfold” as a method to relate that USA will be once again become a very welcoming country. I did a series of mapping study base on the program of the pavilion. I determine the different sizes and bump outs by the scale of the square footage in each space. The bigger space, for example, will have longer facade and more bump out. The adjacency of the spaces generates the geometry of the two facades. A vertical circulation is placed at the center of the building, and which connect to the all spaces in the pavilion. It provides an efficient walk path for the building. Since the theme of this world expo is about “better city better life”, I thought it would be an interesting idea to exhibit and introduce four cities, that can better represent the spirit of the US. The exhibitions will be like a conversation between the cities of east and west. Each city I used for the exhibition will have different point of focus. For example, Washington DC will be emphasizing on the history while new your city is focusing more on the art and cultures. I think letting people understand cities is also a good way to let people understand the USA’s culture value, history, politician, and etc. The Flatness of the architecture echoes the flat urban landscape of American cities.

The pattern of the screening came from the American city aerial maps, which represents the busy road systems of the country. The screening not only acts as shading device, they are also structure system to hold up the building. So each wall are like load bearing wall to support the weight of this building. However, there are a very strong translucency from inside to outside. From little peep holes to large openings, they allow visitors to visually connect the spaces.

Dune Flower Doha, Qatar. 2012 Perkins Eastman Inhouse Competition Result: 1st Place Dune Flower is a amphitheater group project I and my coworker, Ki-Seok, did for an in-house design competition. The Site is located in Al Doha, Qatar. The first thing we considered was the unique weather condition in Doha, which is extremely hot during summer. We took the idea of a living plant as an idea to start the project. An Amphitheater that can be controlled open or close to react to weather and function of the space was our core of concept. We later sketched out 4 basic scenarios of functions- 360 degree music concert, 2 sided outdoor theater, one sided play/show, and relax/ cafe/ lunch place. We believe an open theater like this should have certain flexibility to functions. This project was awarded 1st place in the company wide design competition. “Eugene and Ki Seok’s design emerged early as the frontrunner and kept the lead throughout the discussion. The judges selected this design as the winner on the combined strength of its concept, design, and function. What sealed the win for Eugene and Ki Seok were their decisions to design the amphitheater in the round and to provide a mechanism to shade the entire structure from the desert sun when necessary. “

Gatehouse + Overpass Ossining, New York. 2011 Perkins Eastman Inhouse Competition Recult: 2nd Place Perkins Eastman and Design Republic were awarded the master planning and design of GE’s Crotonville, NY facility: John F. Welch Leadership Development Center. Gatehouse + Overpass is an in-house design project for GE’s corporate campus located in Ossing New York. The client requested to design a gate house to replace its existing outdated one. My proposal was about making the gate house to be a part of a pedestrian overpass, that connects the two existing trails in the campus. This gesture made the gate house become a destination point for the students who take the trails. Which made the gate house more meaningful and convey more functions.

White Meat Gallery Copenhagen, Denmark. 2008 Instructor: Henry Fernandez The Danish Crafts is opening a gallery space in Copenhagen. The gallery will exhibit artworks & crafts by young Danish artists. The exhibitions are sort term. And during the exhibition, artworks are available for sale. The goal of this project is to promote Danish crafts while encouraging meetings and dialogue on an international level. Since the gallery is exhibiting young artist’s artwork, it reminds me a slang in my language. The slang is basically saying that young and talented people are like “unpolished” rough diamonds. Meaning that one day they might have a chance to shine. Thus, unpolished/rough diamond is my concept for this project. I am hoping to create an abstract form of rough diamond or rocks though out the space, which can echo to the talented artists in the studio. Having an exhibition in the gallery is like the process of making a diamond rock into diamond.

Push>Share>Save Ranch House Renovations, USA. 2009 Instructor: Liliane Wong There is a huge numbers of Ranch houses existing in many different regions of the US. During the design studio studies at risd, we are trying to find a design solution to renovate existing ranch houses and efficiently improve its sustainability for the environment. For this project, I was focusing on the energy that’s being waste from the heating and cooling. Base on my research of average North East heating bill provided by National Grid Company. We were able to calculate how much energy and money is being spend for just heating during winter. I found out one of the issues is that the heating has to be turn on for the whole house, even though there’s only 1 person in the house. Therefore lots of energy and money is being waste. Controlling the heating zones is one of my main focus for this project. And I also want to use sun energy to reduce the energy cost. My solution is to use a solar water radiant heating system to heat up the spaces. The heating pipes are concealed inside the walls, and they can be controlled locally by the user. Each wall has switch to turn on or off. On the other hand, throughout the research I also find a lot of this ranch houses are designed in a way that doesn’t allow much natural cross ventilation to happen. I thought if the interior partitions can be slide and rotate opened or closed, that would encourage the natural ventilation, and also improve the day lighting of the interior space. The advantage of having interior partitions slide open or close is that allows different interior configuration to happen. The user may open the space up when there’s a party and allow more space in the living room. Or they may close the space when there’s a guest want to stay overnight. It also change the look of the interior space of a typical ranch house. People will feel much more sense of openness in this new design. 130

Public Facade Providence, Rhode Island. 2009 Instructor: Hansy Better Architectural InstallationTopic: The Irony of Architecture Image. (Unfold architecture) I found most of buildings are designed to be very attractive and conspicuous. However, because of the security policy of the buildings, the inside of those buildings are usually not accessible to public. Therefore, I want to use this opportunity to discuss the accessibility of architecture. Finding out the relationship of inside and outside, and blur those boundaries. In my opinion, I think one cannot fully understand one architecture piece until he/she experiences both the space inside and outside. I believe there is much to learn, feel, and get inspired from architecture from both exterior and interior spaces. I did a 1:1 architectural installation model to communicate this idea. The form of this model is base on a research of a school building’s accessibility. The thickness of each parts is responding to how much accessible for each areas for this building. The final step was to unfold this form and allows people to inhabit the face. The relationship of the exterior and interior then is now ambiguous and blurred.

Lampshade Design Providence, RI. 2010 Instructor: Gokece Kinayoglu The purpose of this project is to use computer added design method to produce a lampshade. The design was started from the 3D software- Rhino, and then the shape and the size was done by laser cutter. Finally, every piece was assembled together by hand. The Design concept was to create an unconventional lampshade by starting from the most conventional form of lampshade. By looking at this form from different angles, it can generate a series of section cuts. This can create a new geometry for the lamp. One of the characters of this design was that every piece was assembled without glue or nail. They are designed in a way similar with the tongue and groove technique, which makes each piece fit perfectly into each other. The whole assembly time takes just 15 minutes.

INTAR Screen CompetitionFunctional Tectonics Providence, RI. 2010 RISD Interior Arhitecture Department Lobby Screening Competition Result: First Place Team Member: Eugene Chang, Jaewoo Kang The purpose of this project is to use computer-added design method to produce a screening that is located in the INTAR elevator lobby. The design was started from the 3D softwareRhino, and then the shape and the pattern was cut by laser cutter. Finally, every piece was assembled together by hand. The ideal was to create a privacy screening and at the same time it can have some functions on it. This screening will be a small exhibition space for students works which includes models and print outs. The holes on the screening provide some translucency to the space, and also they provide places for artwork to hang from.

“Throughout our research of existing computer generated tectonic and digital prefabricated projects, we understood that architectural tectonics should be more than just patterns. It should carry the functional and structural aspect of the design. The goal of this design project is to find out a smart system that needs little nails, or glues to hold up the structure. The individual pieces should intersect into, or combine with each other, which can create a structurally sound system. This system will tie onto existing columns at the elevator lobby. The main function of this screen is to divide public walkways and private work spaces, and also provide a small exhibition wall for the studios. The pattern of the screen came from the concept of early computer code, which is consists of series of 1s and 0s. Student may easily tie wires onto their model or drawings and then tie them with these holes. Almost any size of drawings and models can be tie onto this screen system. We are proposing to construct with inexpensive but strong materials like MDF, sheet metal, or translucent polycarbonate. We believe this design will be very functional, durable, and aesthetically pleasing for the students and visitors of this space.

MEL Scripting Providence, RI. 2010 Instructor: Gokece Kinayoglu These projects are explorations of using scripting to generate system, pattern, and forms, which can potentially be used for architectural- interior, exterior, forms and skins. Scripting fascinated me in many ways- although we decide factors like spacing value, rotations, shapes, scale and etc. The results were often beyond imagination. These surprising results, however, are not generated by a random process. The logic and process of them, on the other hand, are very scientific and rational. These are interesting exercise to use information and computer software to create an abstract result.

Concept Car Providence, Rhode Island. 2009 Instructor: Clement Valla The original purpose of this assignment is to learn the 3D modeling software â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rhinoâ&#x20AC;?. I used this opportunity to design a futuristic car. We started from hand sketch and then modeled in the computer. Through this exercise, I was able to understand and experience how good that rhino is with dealing free-form objects. This was a very helpful class. I was later assigned to be the Rhino class teaching assistant in the year 2010. I was able to help students with basic 3d modeling and renderings.

Studio Desk Design Providence, USA. 2008 This project is to design a studio desk system that can interlock and also create different configurations for the studio space in school. My initial idea was to create a multi-functional desks, that can react and transform to different configurations for different purpose. When students need to do desk crits, they can easily pull down the divider in the middle. So that the many different desk surfaces can become one big conference table that allows discussions to happen. The angle on the desk edge allows people to walk easily behind the desks. This desk design system was used in my parasite project. They were placed in the 6th floor studio space.

Perkins Eastman: 180 Maiden Lane New York, New York. 2012 Concept Developing, Researching, Schematic Designing, Modeling, & 3D Studies. *(All the work shown here are done by me) Perkins Eastman has created a series of design concepts that address 180 Maiden Laneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prime position adjacent to the burgeoning waterfront development along the East River that connects the Pier 11 Wall Street Ferry Terminal to the South Street Seaport. Establish an organizing hierarchy of entrances and facades. Each entrance into the building shares the same proportions and scale. Expanding the height of the primary entrance to clearly mark the front door to the building clarifies the approach to the building, activates the street level, and allows more of the building identity to be known on a positive level. Laying with the form of the facade as an asymmetrical gesture brings a dynamic energy to the both the interior space and the exterior edge. Transform entry sequence into a grand arrival experience Circulation and security with the existing escalators congest the front doors with visiting groups who need to queue amongst the tightest dimensions of the lobby. Rotating the escalators to create a dramatic focal element that brands the building with a living vertical wall provides an expansive sense of space, the opportunity to appreciate the multiple height ceiling, and tie a landscaping element into the interior with an artful approach.

Acconci Studio: Plaza of Plazas/ Park of Parks/ Place of any place you wish for Shenhzen, China. 2009 Rendering, Modeling for Acconci Studio *(Most the work shown here are done by me) During the 9 weeks interned at Acconci Studio, I was able to get evolved with several projects in the studio. I joined the design discussions meetings with Mr. Acconci and coworkers, and was able to contribute ideas to them. There are many discussions and meetings in each project, and they treated every interns the same with their full times. Discussions were very encouraged in the studio. The studio was very interested in conceptual ideas and innovative thinking. The main project that I was involved was the Shenzhen projects in China. The Chinese government invited varies architects and installation artist to install and build structures and art pieces on a park in the city of Shenzhen. Mr. Acconci proposed to create a park that has movable benches and tables on tracks. The purpose was to encourage “human interactions” and creating “moving landscape” in the park. We did lots of 3d models on the track systems, furniture designs, and canopies. Mr. Acconci was really pushing us to design very unconventional furniture. He has this idea to make people understand their functions by touching and experiencing them. So visually, it should denounce it self’s function. I really had lots of fun designing them.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;A plaza of tracks & traces: the elements of the plaza move like vehicles on the tracks. Parallel tracks in concentric warped circles, ellipses, like contour lines over the landscape of the plaza. A seat on one track can be moved meet a seat on an adjacent track face to face; a seat can be moved to a table, or a table can be moved between two seats. One table can be moved next to another, to make the counters of a market (or it might be a stage)...â&#x20AC;? Vito Acconci

Acconci Studio: Srip Mall. Atlanta, Georgia. 2009 Concept Developing, Researching, Modeling, & 3D Studies for Acconci Studio *(All the work shown here are done by me)

The project strip mall is located in Atlanta, GA. During the early discussion with clients, they were interested in opening a medium size mall/department store-like space in an existing one story height building, which was used as a car repair garage. Our concept was to divide this giant open space into many smaller shops & retail spaces. However, the dividing element is like groups of baskets. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an experiment of using systems, and structures to draw boundaries. This system provides a translucency to the space, which may encourage the customers to wander around the shops. The second part of this basket design was to study how functionality can be adapted to it. We thought simple planks of shelving can be tied into the poles. Cables and hangers can also be installed onto this design. Also we studied how these system can be easily changed its configurations through time. We thought if the floors are pre-punched with holes, that could allow the poles to be installed, and therefore one can easily remove/install these baskets as their desires. This was only an early conceptual stage for the project. By the time I finish the internship, this project was still in process.

Perkins Eastman: North An Kahn Hanoi, Vietnam. 2011 Architectural/Interior Design, Urban Planing, 3D Studies, Rendering, 2D Drawings Drafting for PerkinsEastman Architects. *(90% of work shown here are done by me)

North An Kahn is an residential complex development project in Honio, Vietnam. Perkins Eastman is doing the schematic design phase for this project. As the country grows fastly, more and more middle classes appear in the city. Therefore newer and nicer housing community is in great demand. One interesting about these housing projects is that they are all very focus on security. Fence and gates are very important to the project. Alike many developing countries in Asia, people there like to draw boundaries from public to private, properties to properties My roll for this project was to develop a terrace housing community with an senior architect. And that includes designing 4 sizes of terrace houses and a total of 470 units in a small area. The first thing came to our minds was to think about how to create a diversity in such dense area. We approached in several ways to design the different sizes of buildings in slightly different way, and that results a variable street fronts for the neighborhood. We thought about having a small court yard in each terrace house that helps the concept of overall concept for the project which is - Connecting Green. At the same time we played around with the massing of each terrace house apartment. We divided each unit as several â&#x20AC;&#x153;blocksâ&#x20AC;?, and re-configured them to make diversities.

Perkins Eastman: GE Crotonville, New York. 2011 Concept Developing, Researching, Modeling, & 3D Studies, plan/elevation studies, SD, DD, and CD Drawings for Perkins Eastman. *(WORK SHOWN HERE ARE MOSTLY DONE BY ME)

GE Crotonville is a campus expansion project. Divided into 3 phase, Perkins Eastman is renovating the existing educational facilities as well as adding new buildings. GE Crotonville has a long history of educating GE employees, its been the heart of firm for continuing new knowledge about technology, sustainability, & energy. Design for phase one is again divided into several parts. 1.Gate House 2. Education Building addition. 3. Village (Dorm). 4. Bridge. 5. Swing building. 6. Existing Residence building interior renovation, and etc. And my roll was to develop the education building and the village with several senior architects in the firm. During the early phase of design, we looked at the site with our landscape architect. We felt that the campus was to focus on the west, and so we wanted to create this village feeling on the east side and use a bridge to connect the 2 sides. Therefore the bridge become like a symbol of this project. It is connecting the campus, connecting the different activities, and connecting people and experiences. Later we also felt like how the campus was dominate by cars and roads. It is a goal for us to encourage walking and create more pedestrian paths.

DIS Sketches DIS (Danish Study Abroad). Scandinavian Archictural Study Trip. Summer, 2008. While studying at risd, we spent a summer in Denmark, we took a design studio & also a lecture class (History of Danish Architecture). Other than the regular class hours, we spent about 2 weeks traveled with professors to Finland, Sweden and western Denmark to visit famous Architecture. For instance, we saw a lot of Alvar Aaltoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s works, as well as Danish architects like BIG, Henning Larson. While visiting these buildings, we were asked to do large amount of sketches. We record details, plans, sections & perspectives. It was an extremely inspiring trip and mindblowing experience. Due to the extreme weather conditions in Scandinavian countries. Their design are very much emphasized on using natural lights, and use renewable energies. In general they are very interested in sustainability. Not only to the scale of a building, but the whole urban context. The city of Copenhagen is very much relied on itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s public transportation and bikes. In many ways I considered this city is one of the most successfully cities in terms of its Urban planing and Architectural design.

Paintings Fu-Hsin High School of Arts. Paintings & Drawings from High School. 1999~2001. My art education started in early childhood. I first went to private art institutions when I was in elementary school. Later, I applied for an art high school in Taiwan, the Fu-Hsin High School of Arts. It was a really important decision for my life. It benefited me a solid skills of drawing, painting sketching foundations, and later they became very useful for my studies and works in the US. I won several painting awards during the senior year of the high school time and later was able to get accepted in the several art colleges in the US with Portfolio scholarships.
