CONTENT SELECTED WORKS 2009-2017

01 CANAL RESURGENCE Riverside Place for Cultural Activities

02 WAR WOUND Rural Place for Memorial Activities

03 ELECTRIFYING ARENA A building should be a container of activities instead of a cold object without signs of life. Only being involved in certain activities can a building carry exact meaning. For me, the process of building design is not only giving form consideration but also paying attention to people's need. So architects are supposed to provide a platform and a background for individuals when they engage in activities that are derived from their need. In addition, fine architecture is always rooted in context, because political, social and historical context exert a indirect influence on the way we participate in activities.

Multifunctional Place for Public Activities

04 LIGHTED CUBE Tectonic Place for Temporary Activities

Finally, designing fine architecture is the process to link concept with practice. In order to prompt people to do activities in certain places, abstract concept has to be developed in detail and to be concrete in the end. This portfolio is my 8-year efforts of place-making for cultural activities, memorial activities, public activities and temporary activities.

01 CANAL RESURGENCE Riverside Place for Cultural Activities

FINAL PROJECT 5th Year of Undergraduate Studies Academic / Individual Work Size: 13800m2 Location: Hangzhou, China Tutor: Prof. Lin Chen Duration: 2014/3-2014/7

The project is an urban complex in a new residential block where the Grand Canal, a World Heritage, passes. It provides the community with their absent infrastructure, such as multi-media center, bus station and waterbus port. What's more, it tries to explore new possibilities brought by the composition of those different programs and bring the center of community life back to the riverside as it used to be over the last centuries.

As the longest, oldest artificial canal in the world, the Grand Canal ends at Hangzhou in the south. After it was dug 1400 years ago, Hangzhou has become the transportation hub in the east of China. The Canal remained prosperous until 1900s when industrialisation grew. After that, the city center moved away and the Grand Canal were not great anymore. Becoming a World Heritage recently enables citizens to realize its cultural value. The project aims to make the most of it and to bring back riverside lifestyle to locals.

The site is adjacent to the Grand Canal. With a plant renovation to its south, the site is surrounded by some residential blocks. An artzone is situated to the south of that plant renovation. Some just completed projects of historical streets renewal, such as Qiaoxi Historical Street and Arts & Crafts Museums, are near to Riverside Artzone. In addition, there is the Grand Canal Museum and Square across the Canal. In recent years, this district has changed from manufacture based economy to service based economy. A lot of industrial enterprises have been transferred and the urban renovation has brought benefits to the locals. All those cultural projects have made this area more attractive.

RIVERSIDE PERSPECTIVE The project tries to effectively connect residential blocks nearby with the shop center to the south. By constructing leisure facilities, such as viewing platform, riverside deck, sun loungers and chairs, and making green space along the riverside, it aims to attract customers, passengers and residents to spend their leisure time here, which turns it into the community's main attraction.

02 WAR WOUND

Rural Place for Memorial Activities

GRADUATE STUDIO 1st Year of Graduate Studies Academic / Individual Work Size: 2095m2 Location: Fuyang, China Tutor: Prof. QingPing Luo Duration: 2014/9-2014/11

The project is an addition to the Second Sino-Japanese War (part of World War II) Museum where Chinese command of the 3rd war zone accepted local Japaness Army's surrender. In addition to commemorating the victory, this new museum, which belongs to landscape architecture and is divided into two parts, uses the metaphor of 'a war wound on the ground' to remind visitors war can only cause relentless pain and there is no one emerged a winner. Being surrounded by complicated context, such as farmland, farmhouses and a 6-lane national highway, the project also tries to stitch the neighborhoods and provide locals with new public space. Project 02 / 11


NO ONE EMERGED A WINNER IN THE WAR WITHOUT MERCY

It cost China a lot for wining the Second Sino-Japanese War. For instance, millions of military and civilians died in the war, and cities had burnt to the ground. Moreover, the war destroyed the economy of China during 1938 to 1945. Meanwhile, Japanese civilians of Hiroshima and Nagasaki suffered a lot owing to two nuclear weapons dropped by the Allies. In the end, no one emerged a winner in the war because these two countries almost lost everything.

The site is adjacent to the National Highway 320. With some farmhouses to its north, the site is surrounded by rich farmland. Across that 6-lane highway from where the site is, there are a number of farmhouses, and a dense forest is located to its south. In addition, there is a small highway service area between the highway and the forest.

Multifunctional Place for Public Activities

ARENA DESIGN STUDIO 5th Year of Undergraduate Studies Academic / Individual Work Size: 12900m2 Location: Mianyang, China Tutor: Prof. Zhu Wang Duration: 2013/9-2014/1

As a sports facility, this arena belongs to a large electronic technology company that is located in Mianyang. The facades of this project are inspired by circuit boards which are the main product of that company, trying to improve the company's image. Besides having the capability to hold a small-scale match, this arena enables workers and their relatives to do exercise and relax by providing them with multifunctional indoor and outdoor spaces. Hence arena usage increases and positive public places are made. Project 03 / 18

While Beijing were preparing for the 2008 Summer Olympics, many local governments took it as an opportunity to construct sports facilities and to encourage citizens to improve their fitness, regardless of those infrastructure's sustainable development. As a result, most of them ran at a loss or went unused after the 2008 Olympics. It reminds us that we should consider permanent importance of sports facilities during the design process. 0 10 20

For audience's better sight and view, the project also concentrates on line of sight and visual quality design through geometric analyses. Since this arena is mainly built for basketball matches, line of sight in those games has become a major concern for the analysis. The viewpoint is set 300 millimetres above the edge of the court to ensure a better sight, because most of player's wonderful moves are made 300 to 500 millimetres above the floor and they rarely make those moves on the edge. In order to restrict the stands's slope and the height differences between rows, the chairs are staggered and the height difference between neighboring lines of sight (aka c-value) is set as 60 millimetres. Visual quality depends primarily on range of visibility and visual angle. The former is graded according to the number of rows before the eyes' position, the latter is graded according to the perspective distortion.

04 LIGHTED CUBE

Tectonic Place for Temporary Activities

TECTONICS STUDIO 2nd Year of Undergraduate Studies Academic / Group Work Size: 9m2 Location: Hangzhou, China Tutor: Prof. Xincheng Pu

Collaborator: Hongjie Li, Hui Wang, Liang Fang, Jiamin Zhu, Yang Huang, Mi'er Sai Contribution: Project Manager Concept 80%, Plan 90%, Detail 80%, On-Site Construction 30% Duration: 2011/11.1-2011/11.15

This project tries to adopt a simple method of construction, and to be built of economical building materials, such as corrugated cardboard, bolts and nuts. Firstly making brick-like units, then assembling columns and walls, finally finishing with a 3-meter cubed box that casts light and shadow for temporary activities. Project 04 / 25
