01 THE THIRTY-THREE Lighthouse Design Academic work Isola del Giglio, Italy Individual work Tutor: Liu Xin Apr.2015 The site is located on an island in Italy. Owing to the happening of Costa Concordia disaster, there is a need to construct a lighthouse here to be both the warning of danger and the commemoration of the disaster. This adds new connotation to the lighthouse besides the numerous metaphors. The location of the disaster, the losses of 33 lives, the spiritual demands of condolences and the functional demands of the lighthouse are all problems that need to be taken into consideration by the project, and they are also the clues of the design in the meantime. As we have considered the relationship between life and the nature, we give up the lofty and firm commemoration image of traditional lighthouses. The shipwreck doesnâ€™t mean the victory of neither part of the humans and the nature. It represents the eternity of the nature, the fragility of life and the exploring spirit of forging ahead forever. We will dismember the broken part of the hull into 33 pieces, which are placed on the hill of the island, with lights installed on them. When people climb the hill along the path and walk through the hull, they will feel the remained memories and atmosphere. When the night comes and the lights are turned on, the hull is like 33 candles which stand in silent tribute for the lost lives on the sea. This is not a lighthouse. They are 33 light houses.

Costa Concordia disaster
Life & Nature : Atmosphere An Ancient Temple Hides in the Mountain, a Chinese ancient painting depicts the story and atmosphere that an ancient temple hides in the mountain and a path zigzags among trees, guiding worshipers to enter from the platform near the lake. We studied the means of how the Chinese painting creates the atmosphere and try to depict our story and atmosphere.
N 0 10
Lightroom Located at the peak of the island, which achieves the warning and accommodation functions of the lighthouse. It has the best view and is the end and core of the main streamline, as well as the starting point of entering the project from the island.
Path The zigzag path is hung by suspense cables and runs through the forest freely. Each element is connected and the visitors are guided from the foot of the mountain to the top of the mountain by the path.
Forest The 33 â€œtree branchesâ€? made of the keel of the sunken ship are placed along the path. The roughness and iron stains remind people of their memories and form a unique atmosphere.
Dock The acute angle of the platform points at the location where the ship sank and is taken as the projectâ€™s starting point of entering from the sea. It looks like a thin slice quietly float on the sea.
Four Elements In the ancient painting, there are four elements: the ancient temple, the platform, the path and the forest. The elements have been reinterpreted and applied by us, which is compatible with different natural conditions (water margins, the top of the mountain and the back of the mountain). This allows the project to form a narrative streamline while meeting the functional demands.
Architectural Plan Reappearance of The Accident The keel at the broken part of the ship contains the key memory of the accident. Its curve, iron stains and cracks all stand for a certain force and spirit. Dismember the keel and place them on the island. Meanwhile, install lights on the top of them, so as to produce different commemorative qualities in the daytime and at night.
Steel Cable Light Glass Railing
Sectional View Night & Light
Light comes from different positions of the architecture. The light that comes from the lighthouse and is directed at the distance acts as a warning. The 33 rays of light from the top of the keel seem to be the candle light that carries memories and blessings. The light that is sent out from the glass railings of the path are lighting up the ascending path.
Night View of Lighthouses
New lighthouses mean the completely new interpretations and designs of the forms, paths and light of traditional lighthouses. The new interpretation stands for the caution for life and the respect for the nature. It represents the cherishing of the past and the expectation of the future. This lighthouse is humble, which stands beside the water silently and tells us a story quietly.
02 TULOU IN PRATO Language School Design Academic work Near the ancient town, Prato, Italy Individual work Tutor: Carrey, Claire Sep.2012 The confliction between Immigration and natives is inevitable, but must be faced. Government wanted to build a language school to deal with the biggest issues--language. The language learning process is divided into two parts --studying and communication. Learning spaces needs privacy, and used mainly for the Chinese. But communication space means open, which attract all kinds of people around. Facing with different requirements, I design different spaces. Main teaching areas are referenced the Tulou prototype. It designed with two levels vertically and horizontally with an inner yard. This project not only makes teaching area privacy, but also helps different classrooms to communicate easily. While the exchanging area through the design of plaza street, the opening of parking, library to attract residents from function and cultural attraction. Making schools more open is able to hold more interesting events taking place. Different designs for learning and communication makes the language school become the immigration and natives favorite places. I think this is the architectural design solutions to social problems.
The Ancient City The Site
The Connected Road
The City Gate
Square & Street & Countyard Chinese like the courtyard has its own private space. I would use that space prototype to creates a good atmosphere to learn languages. Italians prefer square-like, more open space. I would use this space prototype to attract the natives. And this scheme is beneficial to communications between Chinese and Italian.

The Two Squares
The Inner Courtyard
The Covered Street
The two volumes and three entrances are connected by the two squares and the covered streets, which increase the attractiveness of public spaces to surrounding in order to form the ideal space to communicate. While the teaching area as well as â€œTulouâ€? is designed to form a intimate Interior courtyards which is a excellent private space for study.

Between Tulou and library, the air corridor looms in the membrane structure. Membrane structure also offers shade, which build more comfortable street environment. Membrane structure visually connects the Tulou with the library and makes the spatial scale of streets more pleasant. While unique styling and scale alsogreatly increase the school's marker.

THE FUNCTION OF LANGUAGE SCHOOL Language learning needs two spaces: Learning and communication, they represent private and open respectively. I'm going to divide the language school massing into two parts. Library and parking are open to the surrounding to form separate volumes. The teaching function is another volume to ensure their privacy, the form and space originate from Tulou dwelling.

The Tulou Dwelling
The Horizontal Corridors
The Vertical Traffic
The Visual Field
In the design of the teaching area, I borrowed the design concept of Tulou Dwelling.The horizontal corridors, the vertical traffic, the little windows & the thick soil wall are three most important elements which provide convenient communication, moderate defensive and enough visual field.

The Vertical Traffic
The Visual Field
The horizontal middle corridors are introduced in project, which enhances the teaching level of visual and communication links. Through the rotation of the teaching units, form four public spaces and vertical teaching modules. So students can be communicate in both horizontal and vertical directions quickly.

THE COVERED STREET ( Section C-C )
Membrane structures makes streets full of spatial variation, and keeps out rain and sunlight. The spots on the ground and the seats attract people to stay.The light and space changing in the street form the unique & elegant atmosphere which are all dependent on the membrance structure.
03 ART & LIFE Liberal Arts University Design Academic work In the ancient town, Prato, Italy Individual work Tutor: Graeme; Maurits Sep.2013 Because the project’s particularity in scale, function and character, it is a architectural design also a urban design. I try to explore the relationships between city, life and studying. In the point of urban, the original building has a problem of oversized architectural mass and improper texture etc. That decides the new architectural scale and form. In the view of design college, the oversized dormitory, the inadequate teaching area, make it’s hard to create learning atmosphere. I get the inspiration to deal with the contradiction from the Proto ancient town’s structure. I regard the dormitory as dwelling; regard the theater and other public buildings as the markers in the town. The facilities of the campus are located vertically and horizontally in accordance with the evolved space arrangements in the ancient town, i.e. residences + yards – streets – markers + square . The project solves the two problems perfectly. From now on, the campus is a new open town --- living in town, studying in life.

The Main Roads The Site
The City Gate
The Ancient Town in Italy A hospital was built in the site but it would rebuild a liberal art university because of the objection from citizens. The original buildingâ€™s massing is too bigâ€”30 meters tall, and the size destroy the original texture of the ancient town. Accordingly, I would try to adapt the ancient town by reducing or breaking the project mass to make the project be harmonious with surroundings.

The Two Types of Levels Functional aspects, we would adopt the project that the first floor is the dormitory, the second floor is classroom to deal with the lack of teaching area in the art college. At the same time, it could give us a layered sense and atmosphere in the vertical direction. And in the horizontal direction, we analysis the space prototype in the town and then make a spatial logic as the same as the ancient town by using prototype of road network, inner yard, and landmark and square.
The Extension Of The Ancient Town
I follow the trend of the ancient townâ€™s texture to design roads connecting the ancient town and outside city. And regard the buildings with the public function in the campus as the markers. The square would be built in the nearby of markers. At last, making all the dorms that have inner yard as local dwellings. All these ways would form the layered sense in the horizontal direction.

MARKERS WITH DIFFERENT FUNCTIONS
Theater is a marker in campus. I plan to arrange it into the centre of the campus and make it close to the road. The theater is divided into two partsâ€”the large-scale theater is in the first floor, and the mini amphitheatre is on the roof.
Plaza with Shade
The gymnasium can undertake different kinds of matches. I design a big sliding door for the gymnasium. Then it could be used to be an indoor basketball court or a small football field combining with the outside square by closing or opening the sliding door.
C. Campus Restaurant
The First Floor
The Second Floor
The campus restaurant is arranged nearby the main street and it is close to the secondary school. The campus restaurant is open to the college, the secondary school and society.
D. Library + Hall
People could get into the library to study or search information from the first floor or roof. And I also design the roof garden as a outdoor reading place.
E. Swimming Pool
The climate is hot in Prato. According to the demands from people who wants to play in the pool, We design the swimming pool that depth could change on the basis of the distance to the dressing room.
The Logic of Dormitory
x1 - Elegant Curve
x2 - Movable Cabinet
Outside Yard --- Communication
x6 - Outside Yard
x24 - Inner Yard
Inner Yard --- Cohesion
A curved wooden walls, removable furniture, both inner and outside public space, in the dormitory system formed delicate and complex of different levels of privacy. Outside yard is beneficial to the students and the people in the streets to communicate and exchange, the inner yard is conducive to university students living and learning together.
Downstairs & Upstairs Dorm
Art education and life are inseparable. So we set up a dorm system at the first floor, so that students can be free to communicate with people who live in the ancient town. And the teaching system is placed at the second floor, forming a unique teaching atmosphere. These two systems have a perfect horizontal traffic system and a convenient vertical traffic system, students can live and study in two kinds of atmosphere freely.
04 INTROVERSION & NATURE Anpin-street Villa Area Design Professional work In the ancient city, Nanjing, China Team work Architects: Li Xinggang, Zhang Yinxuan, Liu Zhen, Hu Zhihao Nov.2014 Anpin street luxury villa project is located in the ancient urban area of Nanjing, the height control of buildings in this site, the surrounding urban texture and cultural atmosphere, are both the problems and difficulties that must be considered in the building design. In the level of urban design, we continue the direction, location and scale of the ancient streets from the city to this site. Meanwhile in the nodes such as at the corner and crossing, enlarge the street space, and place the bench for people to rest and stay. We have also designed a channel along the north-south main streets, in order to enrich the street landscape scale. In the monomer design level, we gain inspiration in Chinese traditional local-style dwellings and gardens. For the not high quality scenery in the exterior and the luxury villaâ€™s requirement for privacy, we design the private houses introverted and closed. We design a rich interesting little garden in the interior of the building, and with modern style, use the blue brick flies and the grey tiles translated into the elements such as the rockery, the lake, platform and place in the garden. In traditional Chinese culture, one important concept is from the first small beginnings one can see how things will develop. We hope that through the habitantâ€™s viewing to the landscape of mountain and water in the garden, they can feel the real connotation and atmosphere of landscape. Introversion is nature.

The Traditional Dwelling
The Garden Intention
The site is located in the ancient city of Nanjing, and is surrounded by the traditional dwellings. We rethink the form and space of the private luxury villa, and gain inspiration from Chinese dwellings and gardens. The dwelling takes a small garden as the center, forming an introverted, close-ended building. This makes the residential interior own a private and safe little world.
Extend The Old Alleys
Enlarge Local Areas
In the level of urban design, we retains the two ancient streets that originally exist in the site to make the transportation streamline in this site smooth in north-south and east-west. The scale of the street is also consistent with the surrounding streets, meanwhile at the corner nodes, etc., we enlarge the street space, in order to get better spatial experience.

The Arrangement of Four Kinds of Gardens
We have designed four kinds of gardens with different building area, their shapes interlock with each other. For the height limitation of the building, the gardens are all divided into two levels, the area on the ground and under the ground.
PROJECT’S BIRD-EYE VIEW
A. Mini Garden ( 543.2m² )
B. Standard Garden ( 745.5m² )
The area of this type of gardens is minimum. The garden owns highly completed building functions, the living room, dining room etc. are set around the yard.
This is a kind of standard garden. The living room and the dining room own independent platform, while the study is hidden in the overlap of rockery.
C. Intermediate Garden
D. Great Garden
( 1131.3m² )
The garden contains two pieces of water surface. Multiple courtyards form multiple privacy, each window corresponds to the different kinds of landscape.
( 1660.8m² )
The only largest garden. At the early stages of the project sales, it is used as the sales office and the club, and used as the largest private house at the later period.
Outside The Parlour
Inside The Parlour The two renderings respectively correspond to a person who stands in the two positions of the parlour inside and outside looking to the courtyard view. Take one pace forward, we can appreciate complex, diverse and rich emotional appeal landscape architecture, step backward to the interior, the scenery outside and window frames overlay to form elegant beautiful pictures. The beautiful scenery and nature, are inside the building, not outside it.

Two Kinds of Exterior Facades
Functions such as bedroom, parlour, dining-room, study are all around the yard and fully communicate with the yard through the platform and french windows. We have also designed two kinds of exterior facades, in order to enrich the feeling of the streets. Meanwhile the closure and simpleness of the facades , also highlights the importance of the door, in line with the importance to the door in Chinese traditional culture.
