s energy conservation being one of the major architectural themes in the 21st century, it is vital for the leading energy company to embrace this concept and to present itself to the public as a pioneer for energy efficiency. Natural lighting and solar radiation in skyscrapers have always been the interests of debate in a city like Manhattan. The design of the new headquarters for E.co aimed to bring a solution to this problem, which is to both maximize the natural lighting and to control the heat gain from the sun. Specifically, we first optimized the form and the structure of the building and then designed a facade system that could maximize the building’s passive potential. The purpose is not only to provide the inhabitants a comfortable working environment using as little electricity as possible, but also to help to redirect the skyscraper design from mindless height-racing to something more meaningful in the new era.

some parts of the building are permanently in shadow

subtract the part that is in permanent shadow, so that the building can receive maximum sunlight.


the location of the building within the site is vital for the solar exposure of the adjacent building(s).

the form of the building has the responsibility to minimize the solar obstruction to adjacent building(s).

he urban fabric surrounding the site is similar to that of the other parts of Manhattan, which is a series of blocks extruding from the ground. The spatial experience on the street level can be compared to being in a forest of steel and concrete. This experience is both a symbol of the city’s glory as well as a symbol of the urban clichÊ. Located in the heart of Manhattan, Parsons School of Fashion Design is known to be an institution that advocates new ideas and challenges conventions. Therefore, the school must take the opportunity of the new building to create an eyerefreshing new urban experience. Keeping the generic formal pattern of extruding blocks allows the building to blend in with the existing urban fabric and to be a part of the glorious Manhattan. On the other hand, by flipping the direction of the extrusion to downward from the sky erased the street/building boundary and created numerous dynamic moments both on the street level and sectionally within the building.

MUSEUM OF FOREIGN ART 16 Piazza Torquato Tasso, Florence

The real and the nostalgic Florence


Revit+Photoshop


MUSEUM OF FOREIGN ART, FLORENCE


lorence is without a doubt one of the busiest tourist cities in the world. Its beauty and wonders attracted 12 million overnight visitors in the year of 2011 alone. If these tourists each spent two days in Florence, then everyday there are at least 65,000 tourists among the 370,000 permanent residents in the city, which is nearly 20% of the local population. On the other hand, away from the popular monuments, the daily life of the Florentine citizens seems to remain unaffected. The site near Piazza Tasso is one of these places in the city. Compare to the monumental piazzas in the Centro, Piazza Tasso is probably the easiest to be overlooked, yet it is one of the liveliest public spaces in the city. People across different age groups would gather here playing and socializing as part of their daily routine. As a museum of foreign art on such a unique site, it has the responsibility to present the relationship between the local lifestyle and the city as a tourist Mecca to the foreign visitors and to promote their deeper understanding of the Florentine life beyond the physical monuments. Therefore, I propose the piazza to be divided into two halves by a pergola, which also serves as a part of the main circulation of the museum. The western half of the piazza contains all the existing programs such as a playground, a soccer field, and vegetations, and to the east side of the pergola there is a paved monumental space that leads to the museum. This way, before the visitors enter the museum, they would be first exposed simultaneously to the two different aspects of Florence, which are the local and the monumental.

SONIC SPACE ANALYSIS Brick Lane, London

Collaboration with Brian Luce, Grace Chang

A spatial manifestation for our perception of sound


Rhinoceros+Photoshop


SONIC SPACE ANALYSIS : BRICK LANE, LONDON DESIGN COLLABORATION WITH B. LUCE AND G. CHANG


part from the physical construct of a location, the sound also affects how we perceive the space. For example, even at the same intersection, we would feel the space to be much tighter if there were loud traffic constantly passing by. The space perceived by our ears is always being morphed by the different sources of sound. To analyze the perceived sonic space, we divided the recording into different layers based on the sound sources and sectionally reconstructed each layer of space. Later a material quality is assigned to each layer to link the abstract audio sensation to something physical and tactile. For example, the intrusive sound of the siren is represented as a space full of nails. Finally, combining the different layers we would get a physical representation of the abstract sonic space.
