YAO TANG 唐瑶 PORTFOLIO 2013-2018


I regard the role an archtect plays as a dreamer. In the process of design, we consistently discover problems, come up with solutions and polish the form, thus visualizing abstractions, such as geometry, history and ecology. Architecture is like a furnace, fusing our creativity and imagination with our painstaking hard work. I feel great fortune to choose the road of an architect. And I have determined to go much longer and further.

1.2 0.0

[1. BOX]

While some ar tists tend to express their ideas through installations and paintings, architects are good at using space. When I designed the studio for Damien Hirst, I tried to analyze elements of his works and to establish connection between his art works and workplace, in other words, I attempted to make his studio an epitome of his art. Damien Hirst is a controverscial ar tist, although some of Damien's works may not be so comfortable for the spectators, they really shock us a lot by presenting bold scenes about life and death with a system of symbols he creates. And he is always asking the viewers to follow him into a university of his own 8

[2. PERSPECTIVE]

mythology underworld, where he uses animals bodies to mirror the cycle of life and tells stories of ancient theme, like ego and self. I find that a series of Damien's works could all be described as 'some story in one kind of frame'. And I naturally seek to collect the modes he used and mix them together to create his workspace. So what is the story inside each of Damien's box? How can those stories be organized? What is the feeling like if we change our prospective into those of the animals in display? That is what I am interested in.

PUREFORM FORM PURE

Original all-sidedgeometry

Deformation in plan offset

Deformation in solid project

This academic project mainly tried to examine typology as a design method. Through a series of steps of formal, programmtic and contextural study (Typo method), a new typology of gapped tetrahedron school was finally created. Firstly, triangle was selected as the pure base typology, recomposition of triangular schools plans were set as possibility exploration. 18

Then, with different attemps to misread triangle both in two dimension and three dimension, a tetrahedron object with gaps as a result of project and extrude operations was got. By inserting institutional program and context limitation from a site in Ann Arbor, previous form was interrogated and transformed into reasonable organize space for a middle school.

[ANALYSIS OF FESTIVALS] Festivals | Atmosphere | Activities

[Daily Scenes and 4 kinds of living space]

City is like an amplified architecture and architecture is like a contracted city.

I would like to borrow the texture of the city to build a museum of festivals for Dali people.

Sometimes, local residents are the best architects, because while architects design with their knowledge and imagination, they build with their real life. So the space local people create is the container of their collective memories- running on a lane, selling snacks on a street, flying a kite in a squareďźŒ telling stories to grandchildren in a yard. When we look into the figure and ground, we get the specific space of the city-TEXTURE.

Dali, a traditional town lies in the west-south of China whose residents are mainly Bai People (an ethnic minority group famous for its festival culture). As the dominant center of Bai People in history, Dali developed an intesive texture under the chessboard-shaped city layout, which provide local people vivid daily life.

a street can be abstracted as a box without top, front and back, it is used as public passage, both for transportation and communication

an alley is a more narrow and private street, it is used as transitional space often connecting a street and entrance of the private garden or house

a house can be abstracted as a box with 6 complete planes, it is a small and private domain

REBIRTH OF MINE

College Town in Abandoned Open Pit of Aoshan Iron Mine

LOCATION

Ma'anshan, Anhui

DATE

JUL-OCT 2014

PROPERTY

PERSONAL PROJECT

site research: with Wan Jieping design: individual work 37


After the reform and opening up, Ma'anshan vigorously developed iron and steel industry which requires a lot of manpower, Grandpa and friends in the same village moved to work here together .

Every dawn, Grandpa took the small green train to work in mine.

At that time, there were a variety of machinery everywhere in the mine working busily.

With the exhaustion of iron ore resources, the mine was not that busy any more. Later, citizens decided to revive such a mine and transformed it into a college town, unique schools would attract people both in Maanshan and nearby cities.

Now, with the memory of the pit, I attend the colllege constructed right in the mine.

In my hometown, Ma'anshan, which is famous for its steel production and thrived in the last century. Most people of my birthplace are workers.However, as the steel mine came closer to exhaustion, the pits were gradually abandoned, the rails across the city were also out of use, factories became problems for environmental protection. In spite of this, steel industr y is the memor y of a whole 38

generation of my city, it is a cultural brand we will never forget. I proposed a college town to be built in an abandoned mine pit, which would attract people by offering diverse activities based on the special landscape and help the site revive by itself. I would imagine myself a senior student of the college in the pit and present the pit in a student's narrative.


[A BRIEF HISTORY OF MAANSHAN] [1st Stage | From 1910-1958]

1911

First steel ore was found by Chen Meiting in Dazha Hill and Changlong Hill.

1924

The most prosperous epoch of the mine area, steel ore produced accounted for 1/3 of national production.

1918

1913

1930

All of the railway lines in the mine area were completed.

1923

First rail was constructed from Pingxian Area to Maojiaqiao with the length of 4 km.

Six mines were put into exploit, and first harbour Caishi Harbor was built to tranport steel ore.

Maanshan Railway Administrative Office was set.

1942

1956

First thermal power plant was built and the lines to mine area stretched to 16.8km.

Maanshan was set as an prefecture-level city.

The college town in the pit is a mixture of schools, lab factories and public greenlands and can be divided into several main function area- living area, public space and academic area which spread vertically. Since colleges in the pit consist of six college units which are similar in typology, space arragements and structures, I will simplify the issue and design one of the six parts in depth.

Ground floor

[LIVING AREA] T h i s a re a c o n s i s t s of s t u d e n t s ' dormitar y (most private), gardens and platforms (more public), students' center (more public) and public greenland (most public). And these functions are spread along the horizontal two-storey corridors. When we walk on the corridor, communication between different people occur spontaneously.

4-bed room

[Talk with my friends along the corridor] I am going to run down to the bottom park along the twisting mountain road.

It's a long way more than 12km to go, good luck!

4-bed room with a garden

Walking along the porch, I could witness interesting events. Look, two freshman are vexed doing their machine repairment homework.

Tammy, I have just finished my new dormitar y construction, welcome.

Your mud wall pattern is pretty beautiful, I like it.

This is my d o r m i t a r y, I s h a re i t w i t h 3 c l a s s m a t e s . To enjoy the scenary of the yard while lying on the bed feels good.

I suggest you also sun your clothes and sheets. Many people have realized that it is a good clotheswashing day.

43


[ACADEMIC AREA] This is a mutli-functional area beneath the ground surface, which is lightened by light wells, skylights and indoor lighting. Escalators and stairs are main ways of vertical transportation.

44


45


[Platform] The platform between dormitaries becomes active space for students to conduct different kinds of activities, such as doing exercise, holding parties and sunning clothes and sheets. 46

In our imagination of a healthy community in the future, residents live closely to nature in a relient and austere way. Abundent ground space not only provides residents with outdoor activities, but also with productive local farmlands, thus poetic landscape and healthier food to resist present fast food's domination. Following the path of the farmland, public are 50

lead to the previously blocked riverfront, so that the site will be activated. Textures of farmland resonate in upper apartment's design. Bars of inner MEP core and periphery rooms ensures efficient organization of the plans and enough light for each rooms and corridor space with minumum energy consumption.

[ANALYSIS OF FLOW DIRECTION] VALUE OF FLOW ACCUMULATION 1 2 4 8 16 32 64 128 Highest risk area of flooding

Antonico Creek is the main stream crossing Paraisópolis. However, this corridor area presents a variety of environmental problems and risky water area becomes a lost space in Paraisópolis, where people regard as a private inner block courtyard, a waste dumping place, a dirty flow to pour their sewage from exposed pipes. No one would care if his behavior exacerbates the environment. Besides, the lack of fund makes the problem impossible to be solved in a short term. Above all the issues that need to be handled, probably is to change people’s attitude towards water. My proposal is consisted of two phases. Firstly make water visible, so that people would be aware of the situation of the water; then, to add infrastructure to deal with the pollution of the creek including biological wetland, trapping net and pipes connectedt to existing broken sewage pipes; the second phase is to add infrastructure and public space along the creek, through a series water based public activities, people would not only have a different attitude towards water 56

but also strengthen their community culture. At last, people in the whole community could work collectively to make water area a more healthy, cultural and sustainable living space. In this way could we rediscover water. The design will base on a study of typology of water infrastructure and territory of water to create components in a localized water infrastructure network. By inserting these components and optimize them according to existing topographical and urban context, the water network would effectively provide the community a chance to increase natural and cultural environment. What is also important is that environmental issue, in essence is part of a larger issue- how to make it an ideal community for residents to live a happy life. By involving people to celebrate water and create a series public spaces centering water, the final goal is to imagine a healthy, cultural and sustainable community.

[DESIGN STRATEGY AND PHASES]

Phase 1 The Tower - Awareness of Water Most part of Antonico Creek is actually insivible now. People pour sewage directly to creek, dump waste along the water front and construct above or along the creek. So the first step to regenerate the corridor should be “To make the water visible�. Tower here is a quick way to announce the existence of the creek. It is a landmark, an information conveyor, an independent infrastructural system, a viewing deck to remind people pollution behavior should be stopped.

WATER COLLECTION Prototype:water tower This is a combination of rainwater collection core and space around it(including decks and sheltered bottom space). Water collected by the core could be used either for direct drinking and other activites surrounding it like water supply for public kitchen.

60

WATER TRANSPORTATION Prototype:pipe These pipe structures are connected with underground water supply/sewage pipe as communicators and playful objects.


Phase 2 The Creek - Celebration of water When more and more people are aware of the pollution problem of the creek and change their dumping/pouring behavior, a system of infrasturcture could be plugged in the void space of the creek corridor area. These infrastructures also play an important role to provide places for public activites so that the whole community can come together for the celebration of water.

URBAN PHOTOSYNTHESIS Development of A Healthy Community in Industry Corridor

MICHAEL JEFFERSON, ANYA SIROTA

GROUP WORK (CHIEF DESIGNER)

With Da Huo, Feier Lan, Liwan Zhang. For ULI Hines Compitition, integration of urban design, development and landscape 75


URBAN PHOTOSYNTHESIS proposal was guided by the Chicago River, the natural resource that defines the landscape. The design prioritizes linkages between the development sites to promote connectivity and access to the river, while emphasizing the natural resources onsite. To achieve the goal of turning the lost industrial waterfront to a healthy community, the design reframed this area with aspects of mobility, culture and ecology through a poetic imagination of urban farmland community. The site lies in the industrial corridor in Chicago where water and air pollution is a big concern to prevent people from coming here. 76

Chicago city is seperated to two pieces by both the river and railroads, and our site is like an island detached from its surrounding urban area. So our design focuses more on how to convert this land to a healthy place on Chicago not only physically but also in people’s perception.
