Designing a Vacation House in Context of Nature. The goal was to design an environmental friendly vacation house in a beautiful site of Tryon Farm, MI. There was a great emphasis on enabling the building to blend in with community buildings and houses that exist around the site, and respect the nature and promote nature-centered life style.

Getting Away The central parti that surrounds this project is the idea of getting away. The plan includes two separate building structures, one functioning as the main building and another as a guest house, and an enclosed courtyard that connects to the nearby hill.

The plan revolves around the central courtyard; it has a function as a garden, but also serves as an important emphasis of parti, promoting isolation and privateness. All the windows are projecting toward the courtyard, and there are no windows looking outward, except the windows on guest house projecting toward the hill, indicating the focus of the building by guiding the view. 4.

Leaving School After spring of 2015, I made a decision to do my mandatory military service in South Korea. It was a tough decision, to leave everything behind, school work, classmates and best friends, and to place myself in a different environment. Twenty-one months of military service were harsh, starting from training camp to dischargement. I learned about leadership, responsibility, and most of all, desperation. The physical hardship was nothing to compared to the desperation that haunted me in my military service. The thought of my classmates and friends getting closer to their goals every single day, and the reality where I was stuck within mountains gave me anxieties about my future. Unlike the life that I had in school, there was nobody telling me, or even helping me, to study in the military base. So I had to be proactive. I had to search through the internet, library, and resources to find something that I could use to better myself. I started my personal work shortly after the training camp. It began with sketches, to online class, then to extensive studies. It may not be a sophisticated work, but for me, it is a sign, evidence that I have changed, and I am a new, driven, and ambitious person. These are the works during the time of my military service from year 2015 to 2017.

Watercolors In the spring of 2018, I came back to Andrews University, and as a gap year, I took mainly non-Architecture classes. Painting class was also one of them, and it was great opportunity to explore watercolor painting.
