FR EE N I GHT Space : trains station Object : individual Location : London

The infrastructure space is the node of moving paths. Within the density of the city, the infrastructure is unavoidably packed of people, the individual cant’ stop on the way, he is like an object been moved from one place to another. Exploring in the city in the night, the infrastructure space that was packed with people and objects becomes large and borderless almost like a landscape. It is empty but beautiful. When architecture elements imitate from the objects in the nights, it forms a strange but as interesting space as the night. It’s neutral quality free the space from function and free people from daily life.

Sha re Bro o klyn D o wnto wn Space :share public space Object : digital youth Location : Brooklyn

Brooklyn has an existing diverse shared economy that clusters in the downtown area and supports the tech industry. This analysis identifies Fulton Street as a potential site that can grow and enrich the existing crowd sources and exchanges. This network culture which occurs in both physical and digital spaces has amplified serendipity between how we share ideas and resources between our live, work and 3rd spaces.

Open C ity Space :ground floor Object : / Location : Des Moines

Des Moines downtown has been losing itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s workers and people constantly, the causes are various: economic depression, value of land, efficiency of workers, increase of mobility, etc. But compare to these software, the architecture as the hardware in fact is responsible for this result. As a proposal for the temporary time, these vacancy space should open for public that allow everyone or organization to use. This revealing of the ground space retrace the connection of building with human being and it will further effect the future development.


Des Moines is not built for citizens. The scales are all for cars. Company buildings and parking lots, parking ramps are not to human scale and in fact they reject the engagement of body. Building scale are too large. They are too massive as if they are the Greek temples. Every square footage of blocks are capitalized. The office buildings that grow from the first floor of the city stops people to get into the plot. The only places are the street, the bare street, which only forces people keep walking.

The Cut Plane

The Parameter

Skywalk as cut plane

Parking garage as Parameter

Des Moines proud of longest skywalks in US which connects over 40 buildings together to serve as substitute of pedestrian path.

Des Moines downtown is circled by parking lot that connect with skywalk. With such convince, people always enter the office through garages. The parking lot frames a parameter around the downtown that prevent people stay.

In the same time, the skywalk becomes the privilege of the employee rather than for the citizens. Because it only serves from offices to parking garages. The system filters the employees from the citizen, and also separates the ground level to the buildings above. The skywalk becomes the ground level and the street becomes the basement. The downtown buildings are all floating from the second level, however they still taken the ground space as much as they can.


Mind Map Des Moines downtown is detached from the ground. Skywalk provide connivance from garage to the office.

Connect the public space

Des Moines Downtown Nolli X Parenesi map

Not only because of lack of public space, the downtown area is blocked by its inappropriate architectural elements. That is part of the reason the downtown area is going down even people keep building more and more.

Now, it’s time to take off the walls. Now, let’s get the ground space back for everyone. It’s been too long. We need to take action right away to clear these empty spaces for public life.

Vitalizing downtown should start from opening more space for public. Locust street is the best road to connect the exist place of interest: sculpture park, library, Nollan plaza, riverside and side state capital in the further east.

It means to share. The ground level should be more accessible for everyone. It is not the privilege for employees. The ground level should be more interesting than plain concrete. No more solid and dark windows. The ground level should make to human scale, Not designed for cars and vans.

D iminished present Space :museum Object : modern architecture Location : Columbus, Indiana

Columbus is an industrial city. It grows from handmade furniture and to international electric manufactures. The development of manufacturing make Columbus modern and depart people from craft making. The industrial products marks Columbusâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Golden Age. In the 60â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, a few famous architects like Robert Venturi, Eero Saarinen were invited to design public buildings which remarkably make the city unique. However, the The perfect geometries and primary colors in the city promise a good futuristic image but separate from the past and present. The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history is hardly to trace from those industrialized images. Both industrial products and modern architecture are the image of Columbus. They made the history of the city: always looking forward, and leaving the past diminished in the perfect geometries.

Inter va l Space :Residential Object : individuals Location : Manhattan, New York

Manhattan is born male when it is planned in grid. Countless Activities blurs the sharp corners and straight lines. The original identity Manhattan becomes ambiguous. Contrast to that, Individual space is tight kept from public space. The window on the apartment serves one way looking. This apartment design tries challenge the current Manhattan apartment images with identity of its context.


Identity of Dwelling Dwelling in Chinese (JU) means to stay, to store. When we dwell, we store ourselves in the space and separate ourselves from the outside. The intimacy relationship with dwelling starts with the simply repetition of doing things. When people wake up from the same bed, touch the same table, turn the same handle, sit on the same chair... The casually body experience gradually adds connections with the physical environment. It is spontaneous. As this kind of relationship established, the dweller and the dwelling are unbreakable.


Linear space forms linear movement which centralize the interact with the surrounding environment.

Breaking the solid space, let the dweller be aware of the change of time and increase the connection to the outside. The separation also becomes divider of privacy zones.

The corner changes the fluid relation with the dispenser. We will pull harder when it turns to the corner and hear “kta-kta” from the hit between the paper roll and the dispenser. It is like a counter counts how much paper you use and also a messenger to remind you save the paper. On the other hand, this paper roll saves more space than the round one. It allows more paper if give the same thickness of rolls. The space between rolls is filled by more paper. So, it will save more space in shipping and storing which is a beneficial to the merchandiser. I would call it the “Butterfly effect”, which starts from the change of the core shape. This little movement evoke our consciousness about using paper and saves money for the market.
