London’s Royal Docks contain some of the most challenging urban complexities of any region in the city. A classic example of post-industrial decline, the region suffers from symptoms of high unemployment rates, low education levels, under-utilised infrastructure and lack of resources within a fragmented urban fabric. As London’s land values continue to rise and the city begins to sprawl, the pressure on developing the peripheral region is increasing.

Ph

The proposed development strategies presented serve to envision the future of the Royal Docks, deriving a strategic approach that transforms the opportunities and constraints of the site at multiple scales, challenging the region’s current piecemeal and market-driven interventions.

Development phasing and network of ecologies in three development areas

This project was completed in London East Design workshop in 2015, under the course structure of Housing and Urbanism in the AA school of Architecture. This work aims to relate the potential of the area in spatial terms, to the agenda and urban change for London which covers economic and social aspirations as well as physical interventions on transport infrastructure, work spaces, living spaces, and public realm. The project included group and individual work, the process and outcome demonstrated the capability of communicating within the group and spatial experimenting in multi-scalar approaches to existing urban fabric.

Development Area One: Industrial Quarter

Development Area Two: Transit-oriented Town Center

Development Area Three: Albert Island


The test explores the possibility of spreading the built station building, to merge into a mix of mutually-supporting uses, such as hotels, commercial and retail space. The key move defines regulating lines that link adjacent developments through the site, creating a hierarchical network of streetscape that reflects the concepts of concetration and dispersion. The building typology is aimed at allowing the infiltration and integration of the population through the site by perforating the ground floors and allowing a mix of programmes to attract diverse users.

The town centre becomes a plaza that weaves onto terraced buildings to multiply the open and integrate public and private users in a joint enity. The series of plaza and promenades link infratrure stations, of Crossrail, DLR, and airport, to urban artefacts resulting in the urbanisation of the station district.

Implementation of hybrid programme into linear typologies

Explorations through diverse strip conditions

The proposal explores ways in which breaking the island’s monotonous, large surface can establish new patterns of connectivity internally as well as to adjacent development. The proposed concept integrates a series of linear buildings through connecting passages on varied levels, allowing the filtration of people to form a unified public realm network. Architectural explorations envision spatial experiences that facilitate synergies between inhabitants visiting and working on the island. Proposed internal network of connectivity within linear typologies, external aquatic, recreational, and motorway connectivity


The vision for Albert Island is to transform the region into a node of attraction by introducing a platform of hybrid programs that activate the un-exploited island, create links and enhance connectivity through infrastructure within the Royal Docks.

By proposing development that integrates landscape and architectural responses within the topographical constraints of the site, a diverse urban hub will be achieved. The potential of Albert Island to become a destination point in the Royal Docks is explored with the ambition of attracting a significant external population, alleviating the current low density issues.


Tinan Public Library Location: Taiwan Function: Cultural Project Year: 2016 Status: Professional Work (Project Designer @ Ricky Liu & Associates Architects + Planners)

Since Tainan County and Tainan City merged, the Tainan Municipal Library can no longer satisfy the increased population. There should be a foresighted planning for the future library’s function and its role of the city. The Tainan Public Library project is located in the old site of Yongkang Artillery School. The estimated floor area required of the library is approximately 35,000 m2. It is expected to accommodate 600,000 collections, a public service area, as well as an operation and management area. As the founding capital of Taiwan, Tainan is embraced with rich cultural foundations. Historical sites and luscious trees that spread throughout the city are accompanied by relaxing pace. This unique characteristic is crucial to the city itself and its citizens. Therefore, the design principle is established on this foundation while considering the benefit to the public by providing a place where the citizens can enjoy reading, receive diverse education and take part in the urban leisure activities. The overall design strategy considers the library itself as an activity generator attracting the public and further gentrifies the neighbouring areas. It facilitates social and urban activities not only for the indoor readers but also pedestrians. The main floors are elevated while the ground floor remains open. Therefore, the architectural mass represents as a massive canopy covering diverse and vibrant publicities on the street level. Inside the architecture, the space is arranged in a way of promoting maximised flexibility for future expansion and adaptation. The natural light and ventilation are also crucial concerns.

Landscaping and interior greenery are the main concerns that provide a sense of city lounge and a pleasant reading environment. The escalators as a point of entering lead the public from the ground floor to main library spaces on the upper levels.

The design strategies promote an approach to accommodating urban activities around the building by implementing public programmes on the ground level. The main reading areas are therefore located on the upper level.

Several light wells and landscape atriums play a spatially significant role as reading activities are generated around them.

The exterior wall of the service core is designed as bookshelves that accommodate the most collections in the library. The main circulation is centrally arranged next to the bookshelves where a linear light well provides natural sunlight to the interior.


50+ Campus Location: Seoul, South Korea Function: Senior Care & Living Project Year: 2017 Status: Professional Work (Lead Designer @ J.C. Architecture)

50+ Campus was a competition host by Seoul Metropolitan Government Urban Space Improvement Bureau. The aim of the project was to establish several campuses accross Seoul, mainly combining education and senior care programs, for residents aged over 50 and tackling the issue of aging society. In order to stimulate the residents’ second life. The campus itself has to possess several key spaces, places for exchange experience and expertises, lecture rooms for receiving and sharing knowledge, and fundamentally, a comprehensive medical care space and living units. The design proposed open spaces within and outside of the building due to the lack of open ground in the existing neighborhood. On the first floor, besides the open spaces and plazas, a multipurpose hall and gallery are situated to allure publicity. The majority of senior care space is also located here to provide convenience and easy accessibility to the aged group. An escalator and giant stairs heading upwards to the second floor forms two main entrances of the building.

50+ CAMPUS

1. In order to minimize the pressure of the new proposed six floors’ building, the architectural mass is sub-divided into several stacking masses. More terraces and rooftops could be used as sky garden where activities like urban farming could be forged here. SEINIOR LIV. SENIOR CARE / 50+ CAMPUS

2. The external wall built with wire mesh was applied on the elevations. This material maintains a visual transparency while giving the building rougher texture instead of a glossy curtain wall which is unsuitable within the neighborhood. 3. The existing church adjacent to the site is spatially combined in the overall site planning. With an open space between the church and the campus, this corner of the site becomes a gathering and dispersion point of the pedestrians.

The Second floor contains co-working spaces and lecturer rooms for the residents and outsiders to exchange knowledge. It is not only a social incubator, but a crucial environment forging the residents’ participation, sharing, and innovation. 100 residents dwell on the third and fourth floor. With the adequate size of living unit and common living space, the inhabitants are exposed in an easily communicated daily life. In the meantime, more classrooms and lecture rooms are located on the fifth and sixth floor to provide platforms for learning. VISUAL FOCUS

1. In the center of the proposed building, the void plays a fundamental role. Beyond the natural light enters and ventilation improves, the visual and physical connections throughout each floor enhances the connectivity to every resident. This center becomes a space where activities and interactions are naturally happened. 2. By introducing landscape on the upper floors, the inhabitants could enjoy the greenery as the others do on the ground floor. 3. The second floor is designed using glass wall as partitions. The co-working spaces, community rooms and lecture rooms forge intense collaboration and sharing happened. The transparency of the second floor gives a lightness of the building when observing from the outside.

Living Art Location: Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam Function: Residential, Workplace Project Year: 2017 Status: Professional Work (Lead Designer @ J.C. Architecture)

The design of the project ‘Living Art’ involves facade design of a five-floor building and interior design of the fourth and fifth floor. As the building sits at an intersection of two busy roads, the approaches are focused on proposing a different appearance compared to the surroundings to allure visual attraction. Overall, the facade is covered with external walls built with wire mesh. The color of dark brown is applied on the lower floors while the white coating is used on the facade of the fourth and fifth floor. The approach of using wire mesh is to create an additionally rich appearance with minor visual protection from the outside. The architectural mass on the top two floors is sub-divided into three boxes where greenery and balcony are inserted. Three boxes are functionally separated and differentiated according to the level of privacy. By separating architectural spaces, a void is created where an in-between landscaped pool is inserted. The selection of overall used materials tends to be pure and white in order to create simplicity.


The facade design is referred to the height of the adjacent buildings. Darker material is used on the lower levels to create heaviness. It is opposite to the lightness on the upper levels where a gallery, working and living space is proposed.

Reimagination of Tokyo Metro Location: Tokyo, Japan Function: Transport Project Year: 2016 Status: Professional Work (Lead Designer @ J.C. Architecture)

The project was a competition held by Tokyo Metro CO., LTD. The aim was to establish a design guideline for the renovation of Ginza Line, which is the oldest metro line in Tokyo. The designed subjects included platforms and ticket selling area in three stations, Aoyama-Itchome, Gaiemmae and Omote-Sando. The design approach kicked off from the understanding of Ginza Line. Ginza Line is characterized by different sectors based on the functionalities of each district. The design proposed a ‘Ferris Wheel’ concept to celebrate the renovation of Ginza Line. Each Metro station represents cars of this Ferris wheel and they have own joyfulness and identities that are worth visiting. In the stations of Ginza Line, the design promoted unrealities against the reality happened above the ground. In the city, there are stress, anxiety, crowd, and the unpleasant. But in the underground stations, Ginza Line provides opposite experiences expressing fun, warmth, expectation, art and culture. The Ginza Line becomes an alternative city providing the residents an unusual experience.

The rectangular window, often positioned in a bedroom, can be slide on its frame outside across the balcony edge. By doing this the window essentially closes off the external balcony to create a new ‘Juliet balcony’ from the bedroom.

Residential Tower in Lima Lima, Peru | Residential | 2013 | Personal work | Competition

The plot is located on Avenida Pezet, in the heart of the most exclusive, leisurely and residential zone of Lima, with views of the Lima Golf Club. The residential tower strives to become a new prototype for one of the key residential areas in Lima, Peru. This project contributes to San Isidro´s urban profile while emphasising the contemporary nature of a twenty-first century building. The project adapts national parameters and regulations, but also subscribes to sterling quality, technology and design criteria in an effort to set a precedent in local standards, whilst helping to revitalise the inner market and setting a precedent in residential buildings. The test focuses on providing diversified living units in order to fulfil the design requirements. The typologies include a single floor apartment and maisonette. The shared spaces are intentionally embedded not only in the units for family use but also on the ground floor, middle level and top floor. The idea is to create flexible living conditions accommodating diverse households. The commercial and office spaces are implemented on the ground and the first floor with permeability separated from the inhabitants’ entrance.

The rooftop offers a communal space where a panorama view and leisure activities can be shared with the residents.

Associative Terraced Housing as a Solution to Contemporary Living London , UK | Residential | 2015 | Academic work

‘Associative Terraced Housing as a Solution to Contemporary Living’ is the MA Dissertation in the programme, Housing and Urbanism, in Architectural Association School of Architecture. This study ultimately argues that the terraced system is an effective and responsive solution to current and future needs for accommodating the rapid social shift in London and, furthermore, conceivably shaping a new urban appearance allowing contrary conditions to coexist. The distinguished value of the terraced system provides tremendous variations within the interior that can accommodate diverse households, from families to the groups of young professionals. On a larger scale, it enhances integration with street life while maintaining inward richness and association amongst neighbours. It can become a vibrant urban form responding to the social shift. The proposal topologically demonstrates the feasibilities of deploying the terraced system within the city to accommodate demographic change and contribute to the city via its distinctive characteristics.

Asia-Pacific International baseball Stadium Taiwan | Sport | 2016 | Professional Work- Competition (First Price) | Project Designer @ Ricky Liu & Associates Architects + Planners

The site of the project is divided into four stadiums for standard games, including other practice facilities, to create an integrated training environment. The project is led by Ricky Liu & Associates Architects + Planners and teamed up with Takenaka Corp. The site of 30.27 hectares shall form a strategic alliance with the adjacent National Museums of Taiwan History on the connecting circulation among buildings to perfectly realize the total 50-hectare development. The object of Tainan Asia- Pacific International Baseball Stadiums and Training Centres is to provide an excellent training environment and stadiums for international baseball games for the professional, national as well as amateur baseball teams from the Asia-Pacific region. The site is further designed with the adjacent lands of commercial and residential areas, and will introduce more charming innovation and effectively build a new highlight of tourist attractions in the south of Taiwan.

The roof structure of the stadium covers the stand is composed by Tensioned Membrane Structure in hoop direction and Dispersed Cantilever Truss in radial directions. The Tensioned Membrane Structure is a special structure which can cover a large space and support external loads by the tensile stresses provided strengthen elements. It is adequate for the purpose creating large span space and curved shape. The ultimate goal of stadium design is to build an international baseball village in the praised ‘Cradle of Baseball Elites’- the City of Tainan. The design will not only co-exist and prosper with the long history of local culture but also become the most iconic theme park and dreamland for the baseball enthusiasts and the general public alike in Taiwan.

The project was part of the Kaohsiung Harbour Warehouses competition in 2012, the aim was to propose new warehouse typologies in order to replace old warehouses built in the 1950s and are not capable of facilitating new types of logistics industry in Kaohsiung. The design considerations included structural study, applying external wall structure as an approach to passive design and responds to the irregular site.

Resort L is located in a site where has a strong advantage of phenomenal scenery. The design concept is to create an indoor openness connected outside through material transparency. The architectural mass is a composite of two boxes stacking an L shape representing different domestic programmes. Two outdoor terraces, where can extend interior activities outwards, respectively provide private and public uses for the occupants.

Corridor Flat Taiwan | Residential | 2011 | Personal Work

Two corridors are the main features of design. The interior layout is adapted from the previous three-bedroom plan. It purposely decreases private area but provides the occupants more family-used spaces including a multifunctional room and the two corridors presenting different programmes. The public area remains an L shape where most domestic activities can be connected.

Zhongshan Terraced House Taiwan | Commercial | 2011 | Personal Work

The task is to reprogram the comparably narrower terraced house with a width of 3.2 m from residential to commercial setting- a cafe taking three levels while a single-floor living unit is located on the top floor. The design discusses the possibility of using an external structure wall as an approach to creating double orientation and promotes spatial continuum on each floor for a flexible use.

Floor plan The secondary corridor by the master bedroom is inspired by traditional Japanese house which has a gallery set between indoor and outdoor territories and the spatial function is undefined. It displays an uncertain and flexible use based on the inhabitants’ desire.

The secondary corridor facilitates additional uses besides circulating

The interior features a tone in monochrome and a selection of natural materials such as marble and wood
