01 Ann Arbor Fire Station Individual Work Institution Studio. 2017.12 Ann Arbor, USA. Advised by McLain Clutter The main idea of the project is to question what should be part of an institution and what an institution should communicate to the public. By playing with different levels of visibility of the interior, and by revealing the institution’s composition of public and private spaces, this project actively “performs” the composition of the institution for the viewing public.

Key to this metaphorical performance in the massing strategy, the mass of the project is composed of small figural elements that appear to aggregate to form the larger whole, while the whole appears to disintegrate into individual figural elements. In this way, and through the spatial strategy, material utilization and detail design, I aim to break the heavy, severe and hierarchical impression of the institution and design a light, participatory and democratic fire station for the community.

Concept Diagrams The spatial strategy is to stack solid figural elements and displace them strictly according to three-dimensional grid. For private realm, it is a mass with void figural elements continuing the spatial organizations of public space into

the private part. Most of the columns are located on the grid, while with some are placed 'randomly', breaking the controlled regularity to get rid of hierarchy of space.

Elevation For south-north facade, I choose glass in gradient-from opaque to transparent, in order to display some activities inside the fire station as well as to provide privacy for firefighters' living area. The elevation reflects the

organization of plan and interior space. Another reason to use all glass for the exterior wall is to contrast the heaviness of the mass, making it light and participatory.

Section The section corresponds to the plan organization. It shows the displaced void figural elements and the intersections of public programs (educational programs)

and private realm for firefighters, so that people in the sequence of educational programs can see how the firefighters work.

02 Shelter for Slummers Team Work: Jiayue Qin, Xuan Xie, Yunan Huang Duties: Developed the concept, made physical model, drew renderings and diagrams UIA-HYP Cup. 2016.06 Manila, Philippines. Advised by Jing Zheng The project is a post-disaster construction in Navotas cemetery, the Philippines. Inside Navotas cemetery, about 6,000 slummers live amid the graves and excavated human bones. They believe in Catholicism and live in harmony with the dead.

However, typhoon always destroys slummers' wigwam, making them homeless. In order to solve the problem, we design a shelter, which serving as protection for slummers when disaster comes, and providing them with a better living condition for daily and religious events. Apart from its close connection with social issue, the concept that buildings grow from the site and universality of the cemetery building also contribute to the localness of the design.


Jiayue Qin Portfolio Problem: Damage of Typhoon to the Slum The site is located on the coast of Manila. It is often submerged in water due to tropical rains. Slummers suffer a lot from the disaster. 02. Because of the poor quality of self-built 'houses', slummers are lack of shelter for typhoon.

05. The slums are ruined, and the process of rebuilding is long.

03. Many of the slummers died in the typhoon due to its intensity.

01. The site is located in the Philippines coast of Manila, a frequent landing point.

04. The flood destroyed the local houses, causing slummers having nowhere to go.

03 Detroit Workforce Housing Team Work: Jiayue Qin, Xiaoti Di, Yunan Huang (The project include mid-rise and low-rise housing) Duties: Designed Mid-rise housing, drew technical drawings and part of renderings, made physical model System Studio. 2018.12 Detroit, USA. Advised by Douglas Kelbaugh The mid-rise housing is near Michigan central train depot. The goal is to provide affordable and livable living spaces as well as to establish a new city image. It includes two separate buildings, which follow a skip-

stop layout so that the corridors are placed every other floor. In every two floors, there are single-floor units and lofts. Each unit in the building has bedrooms facing south and each loft has cross ventilation on the upper floor. The mid-rise housing is an elevation project. Strategies for the south and north elevation are different according to different contextual considerations. Overall, the midrise project is a workforce apartment, which is spatially compact, efficient and environmentally sustainable.

South Elevation (facing alley) Compared with the north facade, there is more freedom on south elevation design. The south elevation is facing an alley with good natural orientation, so that there is much sunlight and heat. To take advantage of that, the south facade is incorporated with ‘trombe wall’ system to absorb and store the heat. Besides, there are two kinds of balconies covered

with different colored metal panels -- colored ones are extruded out and yellow ones are pushed in. These balconies are in living rooms or bedrooms while the type and location vary from unit to unit. The strategy gives more variety for south facade, making it more vivid and more modern.

N

S

North Elevation (west building, facing Michigan Ave) The north elevation is facing Michigan Avenue, which is one of the historical urban street with many historical buildings, especially some brick buildings on two sides. As a result, the north facade is relatively regular, orderly and formal to correspond to the surrounding elevational context. Specifically, the north elevation has brick veneer with three different patterns -- vertical patterns for slabs between floors,

horizontal patterns for units and big-size pattern for foundation and elevators. Coral colored metal panels are utilized for roof and windows, adding some modern color for the north facade. Since units on the north of the buildings are all lofts, each unit has a big bay window covering two floors and several small windows for stairs and upper floor lighting.

04 'Duo' House

Individual Work Proposition Studio. 2018.04 Detroit, USA. Advised by Joel Schmit 'Duo' House is a private house located in Detroit North End, which is an area under rapid development and construction. It is close to the community park -- Bennett playground, and surrounded by many domestic private houses. The main idea of the project includes two aspects. First is to explore different visual relationships in domestic house to meet the two clients' requirements. In this private house,

vision serves as the core to lead or influence the spatial/ formal strategies, material/color usage, interior/exterior surface design, etc. This project also aims to investigate a long-term house -- one house with same layout and fenestration, but functions for two different clients. This is to experiment on architecture's capacity to adapt to different occupants.

Client A is a young mother working at home who wishes to keep her little babies under observation when they are playing. And the house take advantage of the views of Bennett playground.

Client B is a collector possessing many precious paintings. When she takes over the house, it becomes a 'museum' and a container that provides interesting visual experience related to paintings through interactive design technique.

reflective material

The fenestration is generated according to the family members' visual relation to the outside views, taking the functions of the space, their heights and behaviors into consideration.

East Elevation of Client A's house

In the collector's house, the exterior wall is covered with reflective materials with different reflective effects. As a result, people in the outside experience different views from the real scenery in Bennett Park.

East Elevation of Client B's house

The section is designed to meet the goal of caring kids in the house visually connecting mom's working space with the play room. It's also the opportunity for kids to observe the starry sky.

The material of the interior wall consists with the exterior, which is to reflect the paintings on the opposite wall. The technique provides an indirect but experiential view of the paintings -the paintings are recreated by reflection effects as well as by the small holes. Also, the change of people's locations in the house changes what they see about the paintings.

05 Interior Reconstruction of Gezhouba Community Activity Center Individual Work. Graduation Project. 2017.06 Yichang, China. Advised by Hanqing Zhang

The existing community club was built in the 1980s with a reinforced concrete structure system. It was used as a thousand-seat theatre. In the interior renovation, firstly, more shared space should be included in the new activity center for the residents' communication.

I

Second, there should be more flexibility in the use of space. due to the size limitation. Therefore, these two concepts-sharing and elasticity-are the principles in the renovation design.

08 Architectural Representation Individual Work. Advised by Perry Kulper Design technique: Appropriation

Desert Motel The work is to appropriate found images to create two perspectives of a desert motel. The striking colors, motel signs, hotel furniture, and light altogether indicate the desert setting and motelness.

Critical Drawing-Future Desert Motel In this work, I also experiment on creating new spatial relationship by synthesizing existing fragments that have diverse characteristics, and giving existing materials fresh meanings by recontextualizing them in new setting.

The work requires appropriating a family of modelled objects, while focusing on the critical part(s) of the project. The theme of the work is Under Construction which shows the unfinishedness of a roof and parking building. Besides giving signals to indicate the desertness and

motelness of the scene, I introduce rich evidence, e.g. pen, model tool, construction machine, birds' involvement in building the scene...) to show the conditions of a underconstruction project-it is in a phase that combines both design on the drawings and models and construction in practice.
