SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE

The reconf gured Circular Quay will be a vibrant and equitable chain of transit, social, and commercial activity hubs intertwined with ‘ecologies’ (networks / systems) of green open-space; water sensitive parks and sites of contested memories.

CAMPBELLS COVE ROCK POOL BEACH

To achieve ‘ecological’ sustainability in all three aspects: economics, social and environmental; and put the urban foreshore gateway on the atlas through a solution that challenges convention.

Masterplan


Environmental Sustainability To reintroduce native f oral and faunal species to bring biodiveristy back to an equilibrium; maximise the use of renewal forms of energy and to use resources in a more eff cient manner Social Sustainability To accomodate a diversity of activities through different times of the day , which are readily accessible to everyone; and to nurture the reinvention of collective memories through constant exchange and debate of individual memories. Economical Sustainability Insert commercial activity as an attractor of people which will become mutually ben f cial for one another; and to enhance identity of Circular Quay as an urban Sydney foreshore.

Water Sensitive Urban Design Express the Tank Stream and reinvent it as a large bioswale to treat stormwater and integrate it with water squares so that people can also interact with and learn from it Green Infrastructure Pocket parks, urban produce gardens and oyster rock-beds will be inserted at appropriate locations, connected by strings of bioswales and linear gardens to enhance biodiversity, lifestyle choices and equitable access to green open space Transit Oriented Development Maintain the role as a gateway transport hub, but intensify it through the addition of the lightrail & the undergrounding of the heavy-rail station; improve it by relocating bus stops & reducing vehicular congestion & access Intertidal Wetland From George Street Entry

West Facade

Located in front of the AMP Building and next to the Historical signif cant Customs House and Square, the design of the building is to be a public space and place. The ground f oor is a void in which people can f ow into the type of transport needed, train(B2), ferry(B1), bus(LV2), taxi(G), bike(G). The large atrium provides visual clarity for passengers and creates a modern grand terminal.

02 chinese culture house darling harbour, sydney

The project explores the contemporary issue of Chinese identities, the identity as an immigrant, the inner conf ict of tradition and modernity, and developing a site specif c response in Darling Harbour. The site selected is to the south of the Chinese Garden of Friendship, and west of Sydney Chinatown; there is the opportunity to create a connection between these two culture elements. Through the investigation of Chinese culture centres, the history of the Chinese settlement in Sydney, research on Chinatowns and Chinese Gardens, the project proposes three main elements to the building, the Contemporary Chinese Gallery and Museum (enables visitors to ref ect on the contested memories of the Chinese in Sydney and contemporary expressions through art), the contemporary Chinese roof garden (place for self-contemplation and relaxation), and Chinese designer shops and restaurants, brought together through courtyards and landscapes, a public haven that allows one to escape the city. The contemporary Chinese architectural language does not mimic traditional Chinese architecture, but reinterprets elements of Chinese gardens and houses; the framing and sequencing of spaces, somewhat similar to a Chinese scroll that are never spread out and viewed in their entirety, by analogy, the unrolling of a scroll is experiencing the sequence of scenes of a spatial narration. 10

Interior Perspectives Exploded Axonometric Model Images

To offer a house that f ts all moments of life and to all kinds of standards of living. To offer space for personal input, for all kinds of people, independently from their origin, social status or age. This results in the production of dynamic public while also creating private outside space. Through its f exible and adaptable planning, the house develops opportunitues to experience sequences and events. It is a house that transforms through time. PLAN TRANSFORMS THROUGH TIME As children become teenagers, their needs change, so as shown in the left where next the children’s bedroom is the children’s room, this space can be converted to a study room and the bedroom becomes a single room, while the space above walls are added to form another room for the other teen. STRUCTURE GRID The use of a steel frame 4x4m grid connected to a concrete foundation givesf exibility to the panel facades, and the choice of materials.The box is self supporting, therefore gives interior f exible organisation. The small boxes use sandwick panels that support the structure, connecting to walls if nessessary.

VARIETY OF SPATIAL ORGANISATIONS As the structures are independent, there is f exibility in the organisation of the plan. On the right presents 5 dif ferent schemes of organisation through the clients needs. For example for the elderly and guest house there are two living rooms and the interior courtyard is enlarged.Also as second f oors are not closed up into private rooms it allows the formation of terraces or balconies. On the left shows a diagrammtic explanation of the box in a box idea and how the green, inbetween and box spaces form the overall scheme.

04 art gallery newtown, sydney

Located in Newtown, well-known for its street music and art culture and consisting of many contemporary art and fashion stores, the project is to design an art gallery located on Kings Street. As the site is very slender, the approarch was f rst looked at by rotated cubes on the site and then developing a diagonal grid in which creates a strong axis, different from the surrounding buildings. The roof and f oor of the main gallery are sloped to create a varied levels for seating and a more interesting space.

05 cq super tower

/ kpf

chongqing tiandi, chongqing The Chongqing Super Tower is located in a pivotal location in the larger Chongqing TianDi masterplan, fronting the river and acting as the fulcrum between the SoHo development to the west and the commercial development and public transit hub to th south. Incorporating off ce and hotel uses, the super tower will be one of the tallest buildings in Chongqing. Fortunately, I was able to follow this project not only as an architect, learning the processes involved in design of large buildings, their services and the possibilities in curtain wall design, but also as the developer, the coordination and meetings with the different consultants, schedules and budgets, and was able to recognize the changes overtime in the design due to the clients’ needs.

/ cannondesign

bridge 8, shanghai Located in Bridge 8, Cannondesign needed to move off ces into what use to be a restaurant. This is so far the most interesting internship project I have been involved in. There was only one level, but has enough height to add a mezzanine level, and through adding large steps, creates an open off ce area in which allows more casual work as well as other activities. Furthermore the design to layer and seperate the public space for work area, not only creates a barrier for clients to enter without entering the work areas, but also creates an informal meeting room. Although I was only able to work on it in the preliminary stages, the planning, site visits and surveying, and was not able to see it through, there seemed to be only slight changes to this design to what was actually built.
