HIGH-RISE APARTMENT BUILDING

Student project, HCMC’s University of Architecture, 9th semester, Sept 2010 _Instructor: Prof. Nguyen Huu Hung THIS HIGH RISE APARTMENT BUILDING HAS BEEN BUILT ON THE NEW EXPANDED URBAN AREA OF HOCHIMINH CITY, WHERE MANY IMMIGRANTS FROM OTHER AREAS COME TO. ALMOST OF THEM ARE THE YOUNG PEOPLE AND HAVE DIFFERENT BACKGROUND CULTURE. MY IDEA IS BUILD THE APARTMENT BUILDING ONLY HAVE ONE BEDROOM AND I CREATE THE PUBLIC SPACES INSIDE THE BUILDING TO CONNECT THE PEOPLE. FURTHERMORE, THE ALTERNATE LAYERS OF VOIDS AND MODULES KEEP THEY HAVE ENOUGH PRIVATE SPACE. MODULES ROTATE AROUND MAIN STRUCTURAL CORE MAKE EACH INDIVIDUAL APARTMENT HAVE ITS UNIQUE VIEW TO THE PUBLIC GREEN SPACE WHICH CONNECTS THE BLOCKS.

ACTIVATE 14 LIVE/WORK MICRO-DWELLING Competition from AIA North Carolina _ August 2014

People are living alone and independently. Especially in US, they don’t like to communicate with neighbors. We respect the highly-promotion individual-life of American culture. But I want creat a small “ties” – the linking – between some persons living together in one small community – dwelling building. this idea is “SYMBIOSIS”. People can see the others in their small community, and if they want to contact, they can do it easily, if they don’t like to contact, they want to keep their alone life-style, no one can disturb them. We build the connecting-way by sight, but divide space by physical elements. In this dwelling, they have one garden. They share the same sunlight and wind together. We combine the nature with the living-space. The asemble-garden can have TWO difference and opposite effects: connect and divide, community and individual.

THIS BUILDING WILL BE BUILT IN THE “LEFTOVER-LAND”, SOTHAT THEY ARE ALMOST LIKE “PARASITE” THING TO THE MAIN BUILDING OR THE SURROUNDING OTHERS. THEY MUST BE EASILY FOR ASEMBLING. ALL UNITS MADE FROM MODULE STRUCTURE, COMBINED WITH STEEL FRAMES. IN THE TOP , THE BUILDING HAVE SOME SOLAR PANELS FOR USING SUNLIGHT ENERGY.

2012


MY 16-WEEKS GRADUATION PROJECT, WAS A CONVERSION FROM AN ABANDONED DOCKYARD ON SAIGON RIVER’S RIVERSIDE INTO A NEW EXCHANGE CENTER FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS AND WHO LOVE PHOTOGRAPHY, WHERE MANY ACTIVITIES ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY HAPPENED HERE, NOT ONLY EXBIHITIONS AND CONGRESSES, BUT ALSO TRAININGS, WORKSHOPS AND EDUCATION AT ALL. THE MAIN DESIGN GOAL IS “MATCH-MAKING A MARRIAGE” BETWEEN THE LANGUAGE OF PHOTOGRAPHY AND THE CHARACTERISTIC OF THIS RIVERSIDE AREA, WHICH IS IMPORTANT WITH LIFE-STYLE OF SAIGON.

THE STRUCTURE OF UME CONTENTS STEEL FRAMES AND POLYCARBONATE PLANES, THE ANGLE OF PLANE CAN BE CHANGED BY HAND OR BY MAKING AN SUNSCREEN TO COVER THE SKY-PATH. THROUGH THAT COLORFUL PLANES, THE NATURAL LIGHT MAKE THE ERNS IN THE GROUND AND BUILDING FACADES. WITH MULTI LAYERS PATHS AND FREEDOM ANGLE OF EACH MODULE, PEOTHE SAME PATTERNS IN DIFFERENT MOMENTS OF DAYLIGHT. MODULE AND UMBRELLA MODULE IS BASE MODULES.OTHER MODULES CAN BE PLUGGED-IN TO THE BASE-MODULES. HAVE A MEGASTRUCTURE (FOR MIXING MULTI-PURPOSES, MULTI-FUNTIONS) BY THOSE MODULES.

The brief is design an apartment building in Killesberg, Stuttgart. With this project, I have learnt how to analyse thermal enviroinment and urban context, extract these data and build the function of the building. Through this project, I have tried my first experience with parametric design experiment.

THIS PROJECT’S OBJECTIVE IS DESIGN A HOTEL INSIDE FRANKFURT INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, WHICH CAN BE A PLACE FOR CONNECTING THE PASSENGERS WHO ARE COMING FROM DIFFERENT TIMEZONE AND CULTURE. MY WORK WAS AN EXPERIMENT ABOUT COLLECTING DATA FROM BEHAVIOUR OF THE PASSENGERS IN FRANKFURT AIRPORT WITH THE SURVEY WITH THE QUESTIONS ABOUT HABITS, EXPECTATIONS, OPINIONS. THEN I MAKE AN ANALYSIS THOSE DATA AND MAKE THEM INTERACT INTO THE GEOMETRY FORMS, COMBINED WITH THE “GRAMMARIZING” THE TOURISM SLOGAN TO FIND THE PATTERN OF THE TRANSFORMATION WITH WITH MATHEMATIC EQUATION.

EVOLUTIONARY & MUTATION ARCHITECTURE

_Tutor: Michael Pryor, Christ Thackey

CHURCH OF ST NICHOLAS THE MIRACLE-MAKER, SHORT NAME: RUSSIAN CHURCH, WAS BUILT ON THE SITE OF THE DESTROYED MOSQUE, LOCATED IN THE SITE NEARBY THE RUSSIAN COMMUNITY IN SOFIA, BULGARIA. THROUGH 100 YEARS, ITS DETAILS HAS BEEN CHANGING AFTER SOME HISTORICAL EVENTS, INCLUDED THE BIG RELIGIOUS CONVENTIONS AND COMMUNISM OCCUPIED ERA IN SOFIA. I DO SOME EXPERIMENT BASE ON MY IMAGINATION ABOUT THE EVOLUTIONARY AND MUTATION OF THIS CHURCH IN ITS CULTURAL ENVIROIMENT. THE ASIAN WAVE HAS LEFT SOME MARKS INTO BULGARIAN CULTURE AND EVEN THIS CHURCH HAS ITS CHINESE NAME ON GOOGLE MAPS. MY IMAGINATION IS WHEN EAST ASIAN PERSPECTIVE ABOUT AFTER-LIFE BELIEF MUTATES INTO WESTERN PHYLOSOPHY THINKING, THIS CHURCH CHANGED ITSELF IN WHOLE SCALE AND IN ITS EVERY DETAILS.

KINETIC PAVILION

_ Exbihition at Fórum pro architekturu a média, Brno, Czech Republic, Sept. 2016

THERE IS A CAFE IN THE COURTYARD. THE PAVILION MAKES IT BECOMES A PLACE FOR PEOPLE TO MEET AND SPEAK TOGETHER. THE SURFACE OF PAVALION IS MADE BY THE COMPONENTS WHICH CAN REACT TO THE HUMAN MOVEMENTS AND SOUND, TO ACHIEVE THE OBJECTIVE CREATING INTERESTING MOVABLE FACADE AND THE ABILITY OF SPACE SEPERATION. WHILST PEOPLE IS MOVING, THE BALLOONS INSIDE EACH COMPONENT HAVE BEEN INFLATED TO MAKE THEM BIGGER OR SMALLER, THEREFORE THE GAPS INSIDE THESE COMPONENTS HAS CHANGED AND MAKE SUNLIGHT GO THROUGH THEM MORE OR LESS. DEPENDS ON THE LEVEL OF SOUND VOLUME FROM PEOPLE, THE COMPONENTS MOVE AND MAKE THE “FIGURATIVE” SEPERATION OF SPACE, TO MAKE PEOPLE HAVE THEIR PRIVATE SPACE TO SPEAK WITH ANOTHERS.

ONE OF THE DRAWBACK OF MODERN ARCHITECTURE IS FLATTENING THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN CULTURES WITH THE GLOBALIZATION PROGRESS. IN OUR PROPOSAL, THE ORNAMENT SYSTEMS WOULD BECOME THE TOWER’S NEW STRUCTURE. MAIN GEOMETRY DESIGN / FORMFINDING PROTOCOL IS UTILIZING THE PRINCIPLES OF FRACTAL GEOMETRY, WHICH DERIVED FROM HERITAGE OR EXISTING ARCHITECTURAL LANGUAGES. ORNAMENT IS THE LANGUAGE THROUGH WHICH ARCHITECTURE COMMUNICATES WITH A BROADER PUBLIC.

Master thesis, Dessau Institut of Architecture, June 2017

_Instructor: Prof. Krassimir Krastev

THIS THESIS POSITS AN ARCHITECTURE IN WHICH TWO ANTITHETICAL MORPHOLOGICAL SYSTEMS - GENETIC ALGORITHMS AND CROWD SIMULATION - ARE FORCED TO DIALOGUE IN ORDER TO CREATE AN INTELLIGENT NETWORK FOR MIXED USE DEVELOPMENT AS AN APPLICATION FOR THE CITIES’ AIRPORTS AS A CROSSING CULTURE NODES. IT ARGUES FOR THE NECESSITY OF THE INCORPORATION OF BOTH THE TOP-DOWN AND BOTTOM-UP METHOD IN DESIGN. GENEALOGY: VIEWSHEDS AND CROWDS, DISCRETE AUTOMATION, MUTATION AND VESTIGIAL EVOLUTION.

People get stuck in repeatitive routine. My idea is switch the vertical movement to 8-shape rounding movement. So that people can have more chace to stop by another rooms, it increases the chance people can meet together. They are still alone, but alone together.

DANCING TOWER

Kurgi observation tower competition _July 2020 KURGI OBSERVATION TOWER COMBINES THE IDENTITY AND ATMOSPHERE OF NORTH VIDZEME BIOSPHERE RESERVE, THE WIDE LANDSCAPE OF SWAMP AND FOREST WITH ABUNDANT TREES IN A HORSE-FRIENDLY STRUCTURE. UNDERSTAND HOW BIG TREES BEHAVE IN NATURAL ENVIRONMENT AND TRANSLATE IT INTO A LANDMARK TO PROVIDE A SHELTER FOR HORSES. A WATER COLLECTING SYSTEM IS ATTACHED TO THE ENTIRE TOWER STRUCTURE TO PRESERVE THE UNIQUENESS OF THE SWAMP OF NORTH VIDZEME BIOSPHERE. THESE TWO GOALS ARE MERGED INTO A REMARQUABLE AND LIGHT CORTEN STEEL STRUCTURE (WITH TENSEGRITY SYSTEM), BLENDED IN WITH THE ENVIRONMENT. THE MULTIPLE LAYERS OF CABLES ARE THE WATER COLLECTING SYSTEM, WHICH ALSO SUPPORTS THE DISK PLATFORMS WHICH ARE PROVIDING THE SHADE FOR HORSES. THE 35-METER TOWER IS SHAPED TO EMBRACE THE CIRCULAR MOVEMENT OF A 360° OPEN VIEW EXPERIENCE. THE FIRST PLATFORM ARE WIDER THAN THE UPPER PLATFORMS. IT CONTRIBUTES TO STABILIZING THE STRUCTURE. ANOTHER FUN PURPOSE OF THE FIRST PLATFORM IS TO ALLOW VISITORS TO WATCH THE HORSES TO DRINK THE COLLECTED WATER OF THE TOWER IN A SHORT DISTANCE WITHOUT DISTURBING THEM. FIRST FLOOR PLATFORM IS WIDER THAN THE UPPER FLOORS TO STABILIZE THE TOWER, IN THE MEANTIME PROVIDING UNDERNEATH A LARGE SPACE FOR HORSES.
