01 Self-Organizational MultipliCITY STUDIO ALGORITHM DESIGN Tongji University 2011 Group work: Xiaokai Huang, Dong Jin Yongliang Shi Tutor: Coding, Conceptural Design, Modeling My part: VB, Rhino+Grasshopper, VRay, Illustrator Software: Rapid growth and immigration of population in city leads to the development of high-rise buildings, which in general contains isolated single function. We are exploring a future mode that various urban functions, including residence, commerce, office and transportation are highly integrated and each skyscraper becomes a micro city. In this situation, traditional MonoCITY will evolve to MultipliCITY. A generative algorithm is introduced to let the building automatically organize its complex functions according to urban light environment and program. The fundamental principle of the algorithm is based on vegetative phototropic growth, and the parameters include 'Functional Modules', 'Interconnectivity among Functional Modules', 'Light Environment', and 'Relationship between Light and Functional Modules'. This design also manages to explore a bottom-up design method, by which the form and layout of the high-rise building is 'self-organized' through the negotiations between internal program and external environment. 01


Mode Evolution With the development of high-density city, a large number of skyscrapers spring up, each containing isolated single function. We are looking for a future mode that various urban functions, including residence, commerce, office and transportation, are highly integrated and each skyscraper becomes a micro city.

The new implanted mass is a piece of natural landscape embedded in city. The form and spatial organization of the architecture is to achieve the continuity between nature and city, between different city blocks, between urban space and architectural space, between inside and outside, and between up and down.

Site Analysis

Strategies

The site, containing two separated blocks, is located at the intersection point between Suzhou River and Huangpu River. It used to be one of the densest area in Shanghai, and daily pedestrian flow over this area is very huge. How to wisely embed a large building volume within such context becomes the major challenge of this design.

Given the site analysis, a continuous artificial landscape is proposed in order to merge urban functions with natural open space.

Site Features

High Density

Waterfront

Transportation Node

Separated Blocks

The shape of the artificial landscape is determined by the filed lines of pedestrian flow. Flow data at the entrances of the site to surrounding blocks are measured. The overall field lines of the site are generated according to those key nodes, and influence the final distribution of building volumes.

Organization of the lobby space follows the rules of Rheotomic Surface, so that floor slabs and stairs merge together creating a continuous space between different floors.

The final geometry of the Rheotomic Surface is controlled through several parameters including sloping angle, field bounds, charge potential, rotation degree.

03 Future Airport | New York City Gateway Passenger and Cargo Terminal STUDIO MSDAAD UPenn 2018 fall Group work: Ye Huang, Yifei Wang Tutors: Ali Rahim, Brian Deluna, Ezio Blasetti, Nate Hume My part: Concept, Modeling, Drawing Software: Maya, Rhino, Illustrator, Photoshop A new airport typology can help sustain New York City's financial global leadership in the world. To maintain its leadership, export opportunities to and in developing economies are more likely to fuel growth. Long haul flights are needed and there is an increased demand from travelers flying to Asia and other emerging markets. Airports should negotiate these growth opportunities with more luxurious and efficient travel experiences. At the same time the rise of a technologically driven retail giants such as Amazon uses distribution networks that channel materials and goods to remote locations that are delivered through existing delivery networks including DHL, USPS, UPS and FedEx. The airport terminal that deals with passengers and cargo will contribute towards reducing the disparity between cities vying for financial global leadership and New York City. The new terminal will increase the relevance of JFK as a business and logistics hub making a stronger connection to global centers and strengthening development locally. The site is at JFK airport. In particular we are designing a new Gateway Hub which is the entry sequence to the airport and combining it with a cargo terminal developing a new typology for New York City's airports. 12


Prototype Research

Regarding Eero Saarinen's TWA terminal as our preference. From its openning in 1960s, TWA Flight Center was more than a functional terminal, it was a monument to the airline and a sensational space for passengers to experience. In the last decade, Amazon has grown to be the largest online retailer. A large part of Amazon's sucess is its very sophisticated and increasingly automated logistic system which applies matrix sorting and conveying robots with great efficiency and accuracy. By combining the main features of interior apace in TWA termial with Amazon's new automated logistic system, we tried to create a new prototype of future airport which will serve both for people and cargo. It will also bring a different experience for passengers when they move with cargos and see how the conveyor system operates through interior space.

01 Shanghai EXPO Museum EXPO Museum competition TJAD 2012 Group work: Xiaoqin Wen, Jian Liu Lead Architect: Qun Zeng My part: Concept, Modeling, Diagram, Plan Software: Rhino+grasshopper, Vray, Photoshop, Illustrator This project discusses about the openness of an architecture towards its surrounding urban space. The major feature of this museum is its theme about EXPO, which celebrates culture fusion and gathering. Therefore, this design explores an open architectural system within urban context, through various architectural manipulations, such as dividing building, rotating the volumes, elevating the building above ground, and opening the roof and floors to urban space.

17


Urban Context The site is located in-between two contrasted urban scales: while most Pavilions in Shanghai EXPO are of large scale to meet the intensive requirements during the event, a lot of residential houses in a much smaller scale exist on the other side of the river.

The corrugated roof profile of the exhibition center reflects the nearby shimmering river and forms a highlight of the urban skyline. The geometry of the roof is achieved by a rational beam string structure, which enables flexible large-span space to meet the function requirements of an exhibition center.

Digital Furture Workshop 2017 Group work: Solo Tutor: Philippe Block Software: Rhino+ RhinoVAULT, Grasshopper

The installation responds to urban people's desire for nature. It's inspired by light and shadow patterns of trees. Wandering under trees with sunlight falling through leaves, people see the dancing light and shadow on the ground, which forms a type of natural contrast between transparency and opaqueness, pleasant and peaceful. The design intends to highlight and enhance this moving contrast, and create a space providing a new type of experience.

This is a study of compression-only vaults. It focuses on analysis of masonry structures, graphical design methods and computational form finding in vault. The 3d printing model is assembled with dozens of small pieces of bricks and there was no glue between them, which means that it can stand merely relying on compression force between bricks. As a pavilion, it creates a intersection vault form merging well into landscape and people can walk on or under the vault to get different space experience.

Nowadays, pet cat furniture are popular for cat lovers. I would like to design a cat tree in terms of the nature of cats who like to climb and crawl through holes. This cat tree derived from the study of Batwing Minimal Surface and created an interesting recreational space for cats. It's not only a playground for your pets but also an art object for your home.

Flora3.0 is a digital fabricated pavilion using a kind of "PVC laser film" which can reflect different colors of sunlight and create a fantastic light environment. This Installation was made up of three steel tubes with continuous curvature, and then covered with PVC film. The entire membrane formed a Mobius shape with three points anchoring on ground. In order to assemble each component correctly, each piece of membrane and every joint should be calculated and cut precisely.
