01 : TAKING PLACE


Camp in Masnedo, Copenhagen: The main site of this project is Masnedo Island, Copenhagen. I was very interested in the abandoned fort on the edge of the island. Its complex and unique shape leads to my idea of movement along those hill tops. Therefore I think a camp site for children seems to be the best suited program.


My project’s typology is divided into 3 main types: Bridge House(connecting 2 hill tops), Slope House (embedded within the slope, extending the hill top) and Hill House (on top of the hill). There are bridges and paths conecting these houses, creating a community. Floatings gardens are public spaces for childrean to spend time outdoors.

Step 4: Insert the first diagonal into Vertical notch

Step 5: Slide the first Horizontal piece into the 45 degree slot in the first Diagonal.

Step 6: Slide the second Diagonal into the horizontal while inserting it into the Vertical notch

Step 7: Repeat this process for the next pieces in the order - DIAGONAL - HORIZONTAL - DIAGONAL


Folly: For this class, I started off re-inventing wall system. I was inspired by reciprocal frame structure and designed my own system according to its principals. From there, I integrated fabric into the strcuture itself and transform it into a folable folly. It can fuction as a tent that can fold flat to the ground; another waterproof layer can be addad on top when it rains.

Step 8: Repeat the notching until the final two diagonals are locked into the Top Runner piece.

Step 9: Slide Pillow Insulation panels into parallel pockets between consectutive diagonals on both sides

Step10: Hold 2” Rigid Insulation Board against the pillow insulation that slot between the two Vertical pieces.

Step11: Stretch the weatherproof membrane across the insulation and staple against the exterior face of the Vertical pieces.

Step12: Add the Spacer to the back end of the exterior face of the Vertical piece on either side to accomodate the pressure cap.

Step12: Repeat and create another unit that is attached by the spacer and accomodates the pressure cap between the units.

03 : ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN


explore material strength

apply to basic architectural design

mimic fabric property

test strength of material


FABRIC SCULPTURE: I started by experimenting with 3 materials, cardboard, fabric and metal. The point of the project was to create a sculpture where the 3 materials came together in harmony. I found an interesting way of connection where the fabric and metal wire created interesting patterns. I found out that the fabric was stretchy and strong.


Section cut focusing on moment when the path spits vertically.

Emphasizing on different language of splitting that can apply to architectural context.

Basement plan to show how the path goes under water.


04 : URBAN DESIGN


Urban Design and Housings: This studio allowed me to see the city as a complex large-scale architectural design. I studied and analysed how my site and surrounding work as a whole, with a focal point of housing design. Through the process of researching, I came up with my own organization of the site. My goal is to enhance a sense of community within the area through open spaces and study of landscape design.

05 : ARCHITECTURAL ANALYSIS


Atlantida church: This church was my focus of study for Spring semester project. I looked closely at material and the curvature. The weight is balanced in very interesting ways. The bottom of the wall is in a still and straight while the top seemed to be in motion. This was one instance where I got to learn a lot about rhino and illustrator. Thinking about how the wavy ceiling and brick can be represented in different ways, I came up with the method of weaving.


FINAL SCULPTURE: At a smaller scale, the weaving represented the pattern nicely. I was also interested in the moment where the top of the wall meets the wavy ceiling; the synchronized motion that the two pieces capture memorized me.

PROVIDENCE: I was given the assignment of creating a series of drawings consisting of 50 things. Architecture being my interest, I decided to create a series based off of buildings in my surrounding area. In some instances I focused on the details of the architecture while in other instances I focused on the atmosphere.


06 : Fine Arts


09 : FINE ARTS


My foundation to architecture and my interest throughout my years came with the help of fine arts.

This is where I practice my ability to render and create beautiful images by hand.
