INTERWOVE STREETS’ COMMUNITY

In reaction to rapid development, there are some deficit of quality space in Tin Shui Wai. This project is aimed to use the concept of interwove streets to extend space and locate public programs in order to appear local residents to engage into outdoor activities for their better health and living conditions. The project promotes diverse streetscapes on the ground level and connecting vertical streets in the tower to encourage active interactions among residents.

VERTICAL GARDEN

Without any site context, this project is aimed to use its own quality to provide a good living condition for families. By taking the Immeubles Villa as a precedent, the peoject follows the design concepts of introducing individual garden into residential apartments and creating double height open space for natural light and ventilation penetration. The spirally twising space through the entire tower is also providing smaller open terraces at various level to obscure the inside-outside boundary of each unit.

FLOWING SPACE

This project is aimed to mix one core program realated to waterfront and one public program into a building of total area 2000m2. With emphasis on site strategy, this project is highly connected with existing neighborhood, infrastructure fabric and topography. And the entire project is treated as a flowing space that allows people continuously going throught the whole space following the cycling tracks, which also link other small programs inside the building.

1. Biking terminal is placed in a side space closed to land that is easy to be reached. 2. Ferry terminal sits on space adjacent to water and locates two floors. Lower platform floats on the sea level for boarding, . while higher level for waiting lounge. 3. The place is functioned as public space and commercial space, like cafe and restaurants. 4. Offices and storages are set in a more seduced space for a privacy purpose in order to obatin a better working environment. 5. Public open space on the ground level is also acted as the connecting spot between cycling tracks and ferry terminal, which can also be used as test tracking for bike sale stores. As the location of the pier is intersection of ways from industrial and residential area, it associates with cycling tracks and ferry terminal. Therefore, the main circulation of the project wil demonstrate the interrlation between internal programs in the terminal and the external condition of the pier at Lei Yu Mun.

ELDERLY HOUSING

This project documents and researches the urban condition of Xu hui in Shanghai targeted in groups of elderlies in five urban scales: room, block, district, neighborhood and metropolis. Due to the difficulties elderly encouter, the narrow inhabitation space and limited active space result in their montunous late life. This project is amied to provide them a favourable, convenient life by rearranging housing typologies, specifying use of various space and creating a clear spatical network for their daily activities.

LADDER HOUSE

This project is started from material exploration, then combining with human movement to tranlslate object into occupying space. The concept of ladder house is coming from the transfoming process between service space to circulation space. So it creates multiple layers of space with multi-function that people can utilize, and maximize the efficency of the house.

SITE INVESTIGATION: Xianniangxi, Yangwei and Changying sub-villages are located at traditional Chinese countryside. Through a field trip, analysis are concentrated on the relationship between local buildings and their context, and their functions, the relationship between private and public spaces, human circulation and space arrangement, as well as the exterior and interior. 36

STRUCTURAL MODEL 1:40 Process model 1&2 are transitional processes from object to house in accordance with its site context, construction materials and human living patterns. Combination of mass and skeleton structures demonstrates the action and reaction relationship between spaces under and above ground, which is modified by human movement. Wood pieces indicates human circulations accesses from underground towards spaces above the house.

TWISTING SHELTER

This project demenstrates the transitional design process from body movement towards occupying shelter. As a tree growing on a tall slope of the site of Ladder street, it forms a interesting dent that shapes the shelter. As body attempts to enter and to interact with the site and the tree, it twists and rotates in order to accomodate the dynamic and narrow width. Studies of body movement reveal the body’s position in respect to the tangible boudaries of the site. The final resulting structure is a pronounced memory, the culmination of the twists indicative of the body’s dangerous encounter with the site.

ENTRY AND DEPARTURE

This series of photographs display the process of climbing up the slope, passing by the narrow wall and entering to the site, which leads to continous spatial flows. 40

CONCEPTUAL MODELS

PERSPECTIVE VIEW OF WOOD MODEL

Photographs of key movement from outline to compliation relate to horizontal and vertical section cuts. The section cuts display detailed spatial changing outline at different direction in order to capture the three-dimensional movement in the site. The series of conceptual model lead to the final wood structural model with twisting skeletons in response to human occupation at different locations.
