byYiwen Xing

Red ribbon as concept and infrastructure to connect sectional moments of the project. Also, different methods for organizing those various program zones are introduced. For example, free sense of the waterfront part, axial order for the central vertical farming area and use of the interface of the commercial area provide a different experience for exploring.


CONTINUOUS CITY

redefinition

Sao Paulo, Brazil

The continuous city is to create new forms of living, working, eating, mobility and education. We prefer to the interrelate all public properties and social relationship to a three-dimension continuous ground in urban condition. Continuity concludes spatial continuity and experience continuity. A series of continuous and unique urban experiences are created by reassembling and redefining infrastructure components to create complexity, diversity, and creativity a city should have.

Site location and business district of Sao Paulo

Osasco

The experience should be very continuous and the function will no longer be constrained in the frame of architecture with a boundary. Led by social activities and pleasant urban life rather than mere high efficiency, an elevated pedestrian network is to connect all potential urban activities and be part of social life. All these new forms of experience and relationship are generating constant excitement and creativity that emancipate us from a stifling world of social etiquette and provide us an adventurous embrace of the new community. Public spaces are activated to diminish social isolation caused by the gap between the rich and the poor in Sao Paulo. It will create more job and food to serve the surrounding community and make it self-maintained and secured. CEAGESP, one of the largest wholesale market in Sao Paulo needs a complete revival in a new urban context. The concept of the continuous ground will provide a chance for social connection and more publicity shown in the the space.

The mixture of different functions is intended for a new form of social relationship. Sao Paulo suffers from an acute shortage of public space. To some extent, it has resulted in social segregation, high crime rate, and worsening urban infrastructure. There is no place for people to communicate, share or even stay. Streets are losing their important roles in social connection. The city should provide more comprehensive infrastructure, a multi-functional frame of an energetic urban life. Street could be layered for differentiated traffic and activities while functional components are associated with the street. They are no longer separated buildings but an in-depth combination of space and activities.


SCHOOL WITH SHARED SPORTS FIELD Education is a crucial tool to eliminate poverty and backwardness. This school is much more autonomous and innovative than usual, depending on the various need of local people. Sports field is shared by the whole community which could also reduce social isolation

VERTICAL PARKING More than a vertical parking building, it is multifunctional to create a unique working, residential, natural and parking experience

RAILWAY STATION

The railway station is the start of a new day with a new impression for the passengers. It should be freer and more open space allowing for more possibility and connection with the city. So now, it is no longer a small independent building at the corner of city but a part of the public space


CABLE CAR STATION + THEATER + SKATER PARK

COMMERCIAL + LECTURE PLAZA

The cable car is not only a mean of transportation but an attraction or a place where people gather. Multi-function and different activities could take place like an outdoor stage and a skater park which make an amazing combination

The form concept of continuous ground has been completely applied to this commercial area composed of office, sunken plaza, shopping mall, cafe and outdoor lecture hall. Combination of terrain, architecture and the ground will achieve continuity of public space

VERTICAL FARMING + MARKET The main market building and its function as a market have partially kept but there will not be thousands of truck any longer. Instead, an organic market, which is held once a week associated a high-efficient vertical farming system is designed to serve all the community with organic food and agriculture education


INDUSTRIAL RELINKING Erie, Pennsylvania

Waterfront is the origin of Erie and its industrial history. It is where people went to work for a living and enjoyed the sunrise and sunset in the last century. However, it began to fade as the old industry declined and is no longer an indispensable part of people’s life. In order to regenerate this rust-belt city and redefine its city identity, it is necessary to rethink about bringing in-land life back to waterfront again. Due to the release of 1988 Bayfront Recreation Master Plan, a lot of factories were shut down and demolished quickly with large expanses of vacant land. In the following three decades, a series of evaluations and master plans were made. The discussion between government and stakeholders is still ongoing but fragmentation and a large area of vacancy keep people away. Obviously, largescale demolition in this old industrial waterfront is not beneficial for streamlined urban redevelopment and continuity of rust-belt identity. The proposal on the Erie coke and its adjacent industrial waterfront aims to explore their potential for redevelopment in the next decades before its possible closure. The old industry should no longer be an obstacle for citizens and tourists to get access to Lake Erie, but a link, in association with new infrastructure and landscape to create new urban fabrication. It indicates a new attitude towards these industrial heritage, environment, history and urban identity. The design is composed of four layers, large-scale waterfront reshaping, industrial contamination remediation, topography generated from existing materials, post-industrial waterfront experience. Analysis of its economic and social influence could also result in a flexible prototype for all rust-belt cities. individual work, graduate school Landscape architectural studio Instructed by Julie Bergmann

URBAN STRATEGY

In the proposed urban strategy, the waterfront is recreation dominated axis while the railway is workplace dominated one and connect the neighborhood. Except for state street of downtown, another three secondary axes and east bridge to Presque Isle help construct a complete loop connecting the city and this popular tourist resort.

URBAN ROOTS

Tiantong Yuan, Beijing As Charles Montgomery addressed in Happy City where people live in monofunctional, car-dependent neighborhoods outside of urban centers are much less happy than people who live in walkable one where housing is mixed with shops, services, and workplace, the scale and interface of urban fabric usually play significant roles in quality of urban life. In China, the term sleepers’ city or commuter town, just like Tiantong Yuan, has proved to be an extreme example of a burst of urban expansion. Mega-scale community with very limited infrastructure and workplace make it a nightmare for residents to commute no matter on the way to work or back home. It also increases treasure on the whole transportation system. The project proposed a new typology called urban roof which could be seen as an efficient solution to reintroduce human-scale street life and improve the experience of the workday commute. In other words, this multi-functional urban hub will respond to two different paces of life and needs.

Group Work with Meng Huang graduate school Competition Work


mobile payment has become pretty commonplace in China, which dramatically increases the efficiency. However, during every day’s rush hour, commuters living in Tiantong Yuan have to wait in the queue more than thirteen minutes before they get on the train. Sometimes, this even happens in the weekend, because there is a very limited commercial area as well. Urban roots provide automatic vending system connecting busy ground to different business in the elevated street. People can take advantage of this place differently on weekdays and weekend.

MAKER FIELDS

Hudson Yard, New York

Makers, as a more general concept than DIYer, tinkerer, have more opensource to share and new technology like CNC, 3d printer, electronics. In short, makers are a group of people trying to convert their idea into reality creating something very innovative and may changing the world. And the maker space provides them space, tools, tutorials, and chances to present their product to the public. Over the past decade, Makerspaces have exploded in popularity all over the globe—user-reported numbers show nearly 1,400 active spaces, 14 times as many as in 2006. It is important to connect the maker community. There are a number of Maker Resources popping up around the web, geared towards helping makers find each other and the things they need to get their projects done. So I believe our site would be a very good place for makers to present their best ideas to the world and influence the community. It would be a strong symbol to showcase New York as a global center of creativity. The last question is how, how I deal with a block spatially using this idea, the maker park? Of course, it is not only a park literally. It is architectural and landscape complex including a plaza, playground, workshop, digital farming, restaurants, commercial, residential area and a lot of other interesting spaces.

Individual work, graduate school Foundational Studio instructed by Seth McDowell


The eastern interface of maker park is the door of the fancy world. It advocates a new lifestyle combined with learning, sharing and creating stuff. It is an innovation hub teemed with possibility and fun.

LHASA IN TIBET, CHINA

Lhasa, a city in China, is located on the Tibetan Plateau. Lhasa literally means “place of the gods” in the Tibetan language. In the mid 7th century, documents proved that the name was derived from the earlier word “Rawe Sa”, which means a “place surrounded by a wall”. The place is the Holy Land for Tibetan Tantric Buddhism believers. Many believers in Tibet regard the journey of worshiping toward Lhasa for once as their lifetime dream. This pilgrimage costs believers from weeks to many months even years. On the roads to their final destination, building hundreds of complexes as transfer stations for pilgrims is proposed in this scenario. People call these complexes, “Lhasa”.

Hundreds of "Lhasa" complexes centripetal spread in Tibet and create a large “Mandala” net centering on Lhasa City.

The Buddhist grottoes are either simple cells where monks lived or richly decorated temples with murals. The “Lhasa” proposal provides hundreds of grotto complexes on the Tibetan land, which can accommodate pilgrims for the night with a more safe and comfortable living environment. People gather at these complexes to share and study. Several amenities including clinic, convenience store, and school are included in the complex. Furthermore, these grottoes also hold temples in for studying and worship Buddhism. It is a temporary residence for pilgrims but a permanent place to connect mortal and Buddha.

Steps of "Long Kowtow" in the Pilgrimage to Lhasa City

"Lhasa" complexes inherit forms and spirits from Buddhism grottoes and symbols dating back to the third century.

groupwork with Jinguang Xie, competition work, graduate school


The design of the complex is inspired by the idea of “Mandala”, the spiritual symbol in Buddhism, representing the Buddhist cosmology. The “Lhasa” complex is a three dimensional Mandala being circulated by different sets of stairs. The stairs for the bottom residence are in the shape of “Endless Knot”. The end to end stairs is showing the life and death cycle of a mortal life. Four large spiral stairs in the direction of the “Wheel of the Dharma” connect the bottom residence to the top temple, which emphasizes the way of learning Buddhism. From the bottom to the top, each “Lhasa” complex is a world from form to formlessness, it creates a Buddhist universe. Hundreds of this complex centripetal spread on the Tibetan plateau and create a large “Mandala” net which connects Tibet’s village and village, cities, and cities. In the meantime, complexes provide civilian facilities such as clinics and schools for a better development of Tibet, the potential of these complexes is endless.

IMMERSIVE DIET IN CHONGMING ISLAND

Immersive experience was first cited in the field of virtual Interaction, purporting to achieve complete immersion via various senses and deep interaction in target scenes. Immersive experience diet Room adopts narrative spatial sequence and customizable diet guidance service(CDGS) to renew and strengthen participants’awareness of food, the relationship between food and us, a healthy and well-balanced lifestyle during the processes of dining, visits, transactions, activities. This project also tries to use “sustainable design strategy for acupuncture” involved in the large problem of urban and rural areas, based on a deep understanding of the entire socio-economic system, establishing a bridge of the urban-rural in China’s rural and urban network of innovation centres , adjusting of the realization of the entire social body. The Xianqiao village, the base of this project will serve as a node in the network, to connect people and events of the entire village.

AMALGAMATION OF LIFE IN TAIPEI, TAIWAN

MUJI used to release a book called Elements of Home: It is more than a simple guidebook that teaches us how to furnish our houses according to some kind of existing design rule. The most important gist of this book is to focus on the essence of life, or rather, creating opportunity and comfort for our family. Choosing furniture is just the start. It is usually advocated by MUJI that every detail in our home matters much. From light, texture, and color to a specific layout of furniture, they are about to be part of our life, emotion, memory and even characteristic, from which you can see the significance of details. Even though most of Muji design is constrained to product, it must be very interesting to see its concept applied to architecture Taipei is a modern international metropolis with a high density of population. In addition to pressure from occupation, family, local residents have to endure poor quality of life and environments worsen by lack of infrastructure and green area. Concrete walls have blocked any possible communication between each other. Therefore, much is yet to be improved in urban life which is a big chance for MUJI and designers.
