This is the final portfolio containing three of my projects i’ve done in this two years study of architecture. I’m grad that the overall process of learning was inspiring and intriguing. To move on to a higher stage, i’m long for further study and this portfolio is gonna show my gradual improvement and design ability in a chronological sequence. The content might not be perfect, yet is the record of my architectural journey.
The stepping roof is created so as to allow natural light going inside of the library. This is done by the the gap between each step is installed with transparent glass.
The library is designed to serve the residents living in Kowloon Citys. The form of the building is zig-zag in shape which is intented to create spaces for meeting and gathering at the intersect point. The unusual form of the building also adds a unique character to the district. WIND

The intersection area of the 2 zis zag forms creates a nice place for outdoor recreation and relaxation area. The idea is driven by the shape of the site.
The site is not really exposed to natural sun light during daytime as the high-rise next to it shades out most of the light. The skylight formed by stepping roof is the way to improve the condition

Outdoor area merges with the exterior of the site environment, allowing a refresging break from the study or reading books.
