A Gymnasium in the Campus July 18, 2016, Solo Academic Work, Tutor: Shen Yuan Site: Qingdao Technological University, Qingdao, Shandong, China


Behavior reflector Designed for those undergraduates of the Qingdao Technological University, this gymnasium should be used as a large multi-purpose area to improve design's cost performance. In this project, I was trying to explore the relationship between human behaviors and architecture. I proposed to maximize the spatial diversity of the public space, allowing informal activities to happen.Events were the core of this building, rather than materiality.Additionally, to make this building sustainable, solar panels and shading blinds were used as the energy-saving strategy.

Pattern of Campus

Redefine Campus Building by Events

From the site analysis, I found the campus planning was full of inappropriately scaled large open space.How to connect these bleaker campus space with the site was the chief issue I was concerned with.

I was trying to change the design method to solve this problem.Design process is not drawing beautiful plant any more, but using events - real vision as the design method. Perspectives which illustrating the true visual perception are used to study the result of the design. In this way, the starting point of this building is thinking from real events in the building in the future.

Study Process I proposed to arrange the entrance in the second floor.This strategy allowed the building to have better connectivity of different events and a better relationship with surroundings.The images of the building disappeared becoming a part of land.

The story of a Student I am a junior student in Qingdao Technological University. As a result of the lack of exercise facilities, I used to lead a sedentary lifestyle and suffered poor health now and then. However, I felt in love with working out in this awesome building recently. Spaces was designed to accommodate students as many as possible by creating common spaces can be used in flexible way. I has tried a range of activities and make many new friends here.This has changed my life dramatically.

2.Watching an amazing skateboard performance from auditorium.

Timeline of Staff








Privacy in the Open Office 'Open office'has been promoted by many companies, especially these multinational corporations. Although this pattern can promote exchanges and cooperation, many employees suffer mental disturbance with the supervison from employers all the time. As a result, several supervision-free boxes were created as a private space in which the staff are trusted rather than supervised.These boxes are hanged beside the traffic space containing muti-use spaces that can meet individual requirements.

I was driven mad because i was supervised by my boss all the time in this kind of office!

I can take a break in my freetime in these comfort boxes!

Sideface Correction Historical District Regeneration July 10, 2017, Solo Academic Work ,Tutor :Yu Hongxia Site: Dabaodao District, Qingdao, Shandong, China


History Timeline

Recreating Images Learning from the old prictures and documentaries, I understood the impact of past events on the culture, traditonas and character of this site.I provided a schemes to reconnect the images physically and spiritually.

Coach Station

About Site Dabaodao District used to be one of the landmarks in ancient Qingdao which was colonised by German during 1989-1914. But now, this district has become an extremely messy slum with poor managemant and lack of vitality, although the block has been completely surrounded by famous tourism attractions including cathedral and Britain consulate old site. Local residents who do not want to end up living in such poor living conditions have migrated to modern residence zone. As a result, a huge number of past events of cultural significance have been disappeared. To make this district dynamic and attractive again, it should be regarded as a memory needed to be recorded with a creative method conveying the history to the public.

Explore the Sideface of City The space around back street and the sidewall are the sideface of a city compared with the space facing directly to main streets. During condition surveys,I found that morphologies in sideface area are enclosed and introverted which lead to the lack of public space and confusing entrances by using sampling method. The situation aroused my interest to choose the inner street in this site as my scope. how to regenerate the site bythe sideface area. In this project, Different types of objects will be inserted into the sideface of host buildings. They can be used as entrances, squares, cafes, galleries, recreation areas, etc.

Rarely have tourists walked into this block becauseof this weird modern builing standing in the intersection and coving these historical buildings.

Site Strategy

New Entrance Square


I knew there is a timehonored brand restaurant in the backyard but there is to messy to find the entrance!

I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stand living here without any activity and green Residents spcae!

In order to make interior - street suit the program. I created diverse scale and form of sections in the interior street, forming different levels of common spaces.
