凡所有相 , 皆是虚妄，若见诸相非相，即见如来。——《金刚经》 All the facts that we have observed are constantly changing. If we no longer regard the facts as facts, then we can see a true world. ——The Diamond Sutra
The world in my eyes is not an eternal ending or an existed result. An objective world is beyond the accumulation of the past and even the present. It is this ephemeral moment that is created and affected by all things happened in the past, which entitles it to summarize and record time. Therefore, a building reflects not only the present but also everything accumulated in the past. During my study, I always try to inject more temporal and spatial information into the building and condense the information into a starting point facing the future, thus it can connect the information in the future with that in the past. My theme is time. The first two projects I chose have a great relationship with the past time and space information. The second and third projects are closely related to the influence of past information on the current venue environment. The fifth project is exploring the relationship between the past, present and future of the city.

 REED ISLAND Iraqi Marsh Elementary School
Site: Iraq Tutor: Chunxi Zhao Type: Team Work (Leader) Teammate: Hengrui Liu, Chang Zhou Assignments: In charged of concept design, structure design, planing and Programming; Model making; drawings making. Time: July 2018 Academic work
To adapt to the climate in the marshes, Iraqis have lived in the reed houses in the swamps for generations and relied on water transportation. The local government wants to build a primary school to appeal to and recall its people in exile due to the war. In this project, I took the local construction as a reference and adopted the design of the cross arch, which is commonly seen in Islamic architectures, so as to reinterpret the concept of reed houses in the swamps and create a localized and ceremonial service building.

Site Analysis The site is located at the river intersection and overgrown with grass.
Traditional Analysis Traditional local residences build their reed houses in the marshes. The arches made of reeds are tied together, acting as the load-bearing structure. Other components are also made of reeds. Residences here rely on water transportation. Local residences are Islamic and love arch buildings.
The local education is lagging behind and resources are scarce, but the unique marsh culture provides local kids with some special experience during their spare time. 03

 MONITORING AND FREEDOM Berlin Art District Renovation In A Radar Station
Site: Berlin, German Tutor: Ling Jiang Type: Individual Work Time: June 2019 Academic work
The radar station in Teufelsberg, Berlin was abandoned after the Cold War and became military ruins, but it has been fancied by artists who have turned it into an art zone. However, as the site is messy and the constructions are old, it is not used efficiently and cannot contain many people for activities. In my planning for this art zone, I used aerial trusses as the division of the site and made use of the facilities in the site to demonstrate a narrative design based on the feelings and thoughts of people living in the era of wiretapping; thus, the utility value and the cultural value of the site are developed.
The 2019 Excellent Graduation Design (2/100) in North China University of Technology
MAPPING ANALYSIS Located in the southwestern forest in Berlin, the site is a man-made mountain. It is about 40 minutesâ€™ drive away from central Berlin and can be easily reached by metro and bus.
The supporting structure of some large-scale buildings have been removed. There are many graffiti walls in the site and artists repaint them regularly.
A large number of damaged brick walls might pose a hazard to both vehicles and visitors.
The radar is partially damaged, but its structure is complete and the overall look is not damaged. The corridor for transmission.
A large number of document destruction devices are kept in the site for visitors to observe.
Some roads have collapsed and plants are growing out of control, which results in the inefficient use of the site. These large-scale buildings adopt steel frames which are still usable, but most of them do not have windows and thus lack daylight.
The site covers an area of 52,192 m2 and the total construction area is about 3,0000 m2.
The site is surrounded by forest and the environment is beautiful.
Through many pedestrian paths, people can walk down from the mountain.
The road to the south of the site is directly connected to the cityâ€™s main road.
The buildings vary in height, with most buildings being 13 meters high and some other buildings being 9 meters or 60 meters high.
The site was one expropriated by Hitler to build the Nazi Military School, which was set to train military personnel.
After WWII, in order to get rid of the massive war ruins in central Berlin, this site was turned into a man-made gravelsmountain.
During the Cold War, the American National Security Agency built its largest wiretap station on the mountain top, where many American soldiers worked around the clock.
The radar station was abandoned after the Cold War and became a military ruin, but it was fancied by many people such as artists. Therefore, it was turned into an art zone.
Future The overall planning and design of an art district is needed in the future.
CROWD AND DEMANDS Many outdoor activities have taken place in this venue, such as outdoor performances and outdoor exhibitions. Its indoor space is usually used as an exhibition hall or studio.I simulate the behavior of the crowd, classify the behaviors functionally, and then analyze the combination and sequence of the space through the behavioral requirements of the space. history buffs traveller young office worker audience student visitor

HISTORICAL PERSONA ANALYSIS During the Cold War, both sides were wiretapping each other and people had no freedom of speech. Based on this historical background, I want to develop a dramatic spatial experience by analyzing the public, the governments, and the wiretappers. 1. government

FROM THE NARRATIVEâ€Œâ€Œ TO THE SITE SPACE
Clear the site and risky buildings
Re-segment the site with the aerial truss
Set skylights to increase daylight and keep the graffiti walls
Set ring roads around the site to enrich the streamline
Set the main and side entrance and the main square
Set lanes to extend the grid structure of the aerial truss
Set the load-bearing column of the air truss
Set the outdoor stairs of the aerial truss
The aerial truss serves as a site segmentation and also, as an aerial walking channel, expands the outdoor space of each floor, so that the routes in the site are enriched vertically. Truss bridges are added between the buildings to help establish the narrative logic
A patio and side windows are set to increase daylight. Meanwhile, they are also the main narrative body of the narrative design. An outdoor stage is set to accommodate the performances in the art zone. Independent artist workshops are set in the outer circle of the venue. The radar in the military remain is transformed into an exhibition hall.
The large-scale buildings are transformed into multipurpose buildings including studios, exhibition halls, and restaurants.
THE SEQUENCES OF THE NARRATIVE During the Cold War, the east and the west Berlin wiretapped each other, preventing leakage of information and turmoil of people’s mind. People’s freedom of action and speech and even their minds were strictly controlled. Therefore, this design narrates people’s minds during the era of wiretapping. The narrative technique is applied throughout the design. Site segmentation, courtyard design, streamline arrangement, facade design and shape arrangement are carefully handled.
The entire site was segmented by the aerial truss grid, which indicates that the site is an invisible surveillance network that restricts people’s freedom.
Visitors can observe the crowd through the holes along the wall when they would realize that everyone is voyeuristic, which indicates that people in the era of surveillance were monitoring and reporting each other.
Visitors are forced to enter the next exhibition hall through the aerial corridor in the courtyard, which symbolizes that visitors are monitored through the huge skylight wherever they are heading to.
In this spherical space, any sound is amplified, giving the visitors can’t help to be timid and more cautious, which implies that their voices are being monitored in the whole space.

Numerous windows shaped as barrels extend inward, and when passing by, visitors will notice that there are always a few windows behind facing them, which is a metaphor for the horrible fact that people are secretly monitored.
A giant staircase runs through the building. Through the skylight, the tallest radar tower in the venue can be seen, which is a metaphor for people's desire for freedom.
Inside the courtyard, there is a winding staircase that leads to the highest radar tower. It is a metaphor for the hardship and difficulties on the way towards freedom.
When looking down from the tower, visitors will see a sphere cut open. It is a metaphor for the end of the wiretapping era and peopleâ€™s regaining of long-lost freedom.

 HANGER TRUSS Baita Temple Street Device
Site: Beijing, China Tutor: Yu Ouyang Type: Team Work Teammate: Yi Cheng, Cong Fu, Zhaoyang Lv, Metaamo Studio Assignments: In charged of structure design, actual construction, drawings making Time: July 2017 Studio work
The Baita Temple area is located in the old block where Beijing's residential buildings are concentrated. It is also one of the last remaining low-rise buildings in this ancient capital. It is currently exploring and opening up a new road to urban upgrading and community revitalization. The project aims to increase communication among the community by creating livable and clean environment at the alley. The hanger truss is easy to install which allows local residents to join in the whole building process.
The Most popular design (2017) in the BAITASI International Design Competition.
Baitasi Hutong is located in the 2nd Ring Road of Beijing. The neighborhood is high diversified and itâ€™s convenient to travel around.
THE CLASSIFICATION OF THE SITE ISSUES The site is located in an old Hutong in inner Beijing, where the population is diversified and public spaces are not used in an orderly manner.
Sides of the road
Things are stacked randomly
At the door
Low spatial efficiency
At the end of the lane In the yard
Blocking the way
Occupying living space
Our investigation of existing An ping Alley shows that the main problem is to solve the living condition problems, which is to meet the residentsâ€™ requirement of convenient facilities and livable community space in such a narrow and messy alley.
By observing the residencesâ€™ daily life, we were inspired by their everyday necessity and decided to solve the problems in the Hutong in a cost-effective way.
Some common problems in the Hutong are: laundry ropes and bicycles being randomly placed, the lacking of draining system, and environmental issue caused by the wide growth of plants.
method Cloth hangers are cheap but flexible materials. By changing their shapes and combining them, we can get useful and effective frames and structures which can help to solve the problems in the Hutong.
Dry clothes 1 Landry rope holder
Bicycle placement 1 Bicycles are placed vertically in the hanger-made structure 2 Bicycle hanging structure
Seat 1 Rainwater collecting tube 2 Rainwater collecting box 3 Planting pool
Climbing frame 1 Vine stand 2 Flowerbed
ITEM TO SOLUTION The proposed system is made of hundreds of metal hangers which are common and cheap. The connection part is nylon lock, which is also common with low price. The construction process is easy and convenient enough to learn which allows the local residents can build together as a community activity. As a result, the whole building process will be fast and full of fun.
The truss structure of the hanger is replicable. It can be extended infinitely along the hexagon. The flexible combinations can adapt to various spaces and satisfy different functional needs.

Proposed Location to install the truss
To solve the motor vehicles parking and transportation issue, the Anping Alley is proposed to be one way alley from the west to the east. Car parking area is on the right side of the pass direction, which is also in between the hanger truss systems. The proposal is to reduce the disorder of car parking and traffic jam, as well as the negative influence on the view of public space in the alley.

 BREATHING GALLERY Work-Live Residence In The Urban Village Of Shenzhen
Site: Beijing, China Tutor: Vincent Luo Type: Individual Work Time: September 2019 Academic work
The urban village is a historical issue appeared in the process of urbanization. It is very commonly seen in big cities in Lingnan area. Urban villages are incompatible with the skyscrapers in the city. In the urban village, all walks of life are mixed up. Migrant workers cannot afford a comfortable accommodation, so many of them live in their small family workshops and their life quality is significantly affected. Therefore, in face of this situation, I hope to improve their lifestyle through setting up communities and provide them with a life with dignity.
THE BACKGROUND Location Shenzhen center
The site is in the crack between the city and the urban village.

THE BUILDING RESEARCH ANALYSIS living
There are massive family workshops in the urban village. The machinery occupies a large portion of living space and the function segmentation is chaotic, while no noise isolation is adopted. There are many people working and living in the narrow space of their family workshops, which greatly affects peopleâ€™s life quality and daily routines.

CONCEPT The chaotic use of spatial functions and the indiscriminate use of public space are the main factors affecting the quality of life. Therefore, this program adjusts the usage mode from the perspective of how to avoid the influence of the workshop on the living area, and promotes the whole residential building to form a mode of integration of life and work.
Reorganize the current status
Reorganize the fuction
The functional space in the residential building is not segmented reasonably.
In order to resolve the contradiction between living space and working space, accommodation and workshops are allocated into two separate buildings.
And they are connected by an aerial corridor, where an area for relaxation is created.
Promote this life-work pattern into large-scale communities.

 SPIRAL AND SPREAD Community Aerial Farm
Site: Beijing,China Tutor: Youjia wang Type: Team Work (Leader) Teammate: Hui Qin Assignments: In charged of concept design, structure design, planing and Programming; Model making; drawings making Time:August 2018 Academic work
The metropolis of the 21st century takes up too much room. It sprawls, but It must not keep evolving simply by expanding. This project is intended for Transformation and Reconquest. Setting the spiral path outside the high-rise residential building makes it easier for people to leave the room. Then we use spiral staircases and air paths to connect The various residential buildings so that people can go further to achieve the purpose of Reconquest urban land to rebuild natural cultivated land.
Beijing five circle
2018 Urbanization has caused a regression of farming land and the farming villages are now replaced by skyscrapers.
In the past, people worked hard in the fields and lived in harmony with the nature.
This design focuses on how to use the remaining space in the city for agricultural production.
But now, people spend the whole day in high-rise buildings playing with electronic products.
This design attempts to introduce fields into each level of the building, and thus to give people a chance to live harmoniously with the nature.
INSPIRATION When stepping out of a traditional bungalow, people come onto the road directly, so they can be connected to other people or the nature quickly. However, the sense of isolation created by the high-rise is far too strong, as people have to go through many different spaces to reach the outdoor space, which is why many people are reluctant to go outside.
