At Kings Cross, the Cross City Tunnel is established as an eastern gateway, but at the same time; it is a damage to the history, to the place of the local community. The studio explores various strategies to repair the city damage by establishing a Hub of activities and a Visual connector across the Cityâ€™s East and West.

Acting as both the physical HUB of activities and a visual connector across the east and west, it links up the History: A busy commercial with the intersection of transportation.
The design of the center encourages interactions among different communities and brings the site alive through different activities there.
Today, the Sydney 2030 Vision plays a big part to the design planning. It is important to keep Sydney competitive by supporting sustainable living, arts and cultural and a friendly neighbourhood to locals and visitors.
In order to faciliate the connections and activities among the tourists/ locals /families / people working nearby, the HUB is designed with urban farms, cycling track to the view deck, public squares/ plaza, retails, entertainment, dining, exhibitions, galleries and spaces for artists.

Academic Hybrid as Connector 2012 Sem 1 + Sem 2 [Graduation Studio] l architectus TM Studio l Tutor: Ivan Ip In years, Sydney successes as both a financial and a popular tourist spot in the Asia Pacific. However, this â€œGlobal Cityâ€? is becoming a fragmented, polarized city as the level of wealth has been increasingly concentrating. Eventually, would become a luxury. The studio addresses the goals of the Sydney Vision 2030 through the design of hybrid. It explores solutions on maintaining Sydney to be a globally competitive, cultural and creative city; while creating a sustainable and vibrant community for the locals. The hybrid challenges the typical commercial/ mixed-use tower, it potentially brings the attention towards the urban complexity and connectivity of them through balancing the work, live and leisure aspects. By utilizing the vertical tower typology and the hybridity of programs, it gives the opportunities of accommodating both the commercial and leisure activities within high value land in Sydney.
Hybrid As Connector o
People are the foundation of a City that brings about synergy through interactions interweaving among them. The “Connector” acts as the node of the community by encouraging and sustaining a wide range of functions and simply everyday activities to connect the fragments of the place’s identity, the people and the environments; and to create a harmony with the urban fabric and the area.
01 BACKGROUND OF HYBRID
It is to be differentiated itself from the mixeduse by not only serving the private, but to also communicating with the city by encouraging both the planned and unplanned activities and interactions to take place.
The condenser was the result of functional thinking, which was the guiding light of the construction method... The hybrid was also the result of functional thinking but on a scale where user flux was just as important as econmic flux... the hybrid opened up to the city and encouraged contact among strangers, intensified land use, densifying relationships and left room for indetermination, This is Hybrid - Aurora Fernández Per Javier Arpa, Aurora Fernandez Per and Javier Mozas, This is Hybrid: An analysis of mixed-use buildings by a+t Prologue by Steven Holl (Spain: a+t architecture publishers, 2011),52.
Hybrid architecture is a response to private, social and global issues; it tackles the problems from economic land use to the serving of local communities and the public.
02 HYBRID AND THE CITY
It is to recognize that “city” does not absolutely refer as a physical town. If the City is to be viewed in once physical existence, it should be “expressed in a vortex of temporal relations, mirrored in the activities of a collective body of individuals interacting with one another. Cities are an open stage for complementary and conflicting encounters, and allow for multiple identities to emerge and evaporate. It is vital that “As individuals pass through, new connections arise while others fade away. By wearing various masks and playing different roles, people change the urban landscape as they encounters.”
Cities can no longer be viewed as static and centralized constructs...we can no longer regard cities as a fixed entity with clear boundaries. Instead, they need to be perceived as an evolutionary system of shifting networks with their connective configuration undergoing a continual transformation. You are the City - Petra Kempf Petra Kempf, You Are the City: Observation, Organization and Transformation of Urban Settings (Germany: Lars Muller Publishers, 2009), 4.
. Petra Kempf, You Are the City: Observation, Organization and Transformation of Urban Settings (Germany: Lars Muller Publishers, 2009), 4. . Ibid., 2.
Hybrid is to be read as the idea of ‘Open, Compact City within a City’. With Rem Koolhaas first addressed this idea as the ‘culture of congestion’, hybrid is an urban block that consists of programs which contribute to different functions. It is the activities acting as the medium, creating a sense of community that become the “nodes and connections”  to interface with the City, which responses and vitalizes the urban complex of the area.
03 HYBRID AS CONNECTOR
The intention of the project is to provide the potential medium to generate a densely uses urban space for connecting different inhabitants starting from simply everyday activities that would be taken place. The ideas of ‘Connector’ does not purely regard as generating the means for physical connection, but to also connect the fragments of the place’s identity, the people and the environments; and to create a harmony with the urban fabric and the area.
A city is an idea first, an expression of the idea which the society believes itself to be. It is made up of built fabric and people. ‘City forms, their actual function and the ideas and values that people attach to them make up a single phenomena.’
The Image of the City - Lynch, K. Kevin Lynch, The Image of the City (Cambridge Mass: MIT Press, 1960), 30.
People are the foundation of a City. A City becomes vitalized when synergy generates from coherent interactions interweaving among people. It is significant that a dynamic City would address this principle in design.
04 HYBRID AND THE SYDNEY VISION 2030
Design is to address the issues creatively. It is to drive the solution, the problem solving for not only the current, but also the future; and is not only for the individuals but for everyone. The following are the potential visions that could have achieved in this site: 1. Increase the connectivity and the provision of the sustainable harbour as a civic spot/ activity hub (encourage cycling/ walking); 2. Maintain Sydney as a globally competitive and lively city through the integration of offices, accommodation, leisure/ entertainment and communities facilities; 3. Support/ enriching the diversity of Cultural ribbona1 by further exploring different types of cultural (film, music and sound)
“Sydney 2030 is about changing the way we live, work and play in the city; now and into the future. The blueprint for Sydney 2030 grew out of talking to people, asking how things could improve and what we can do to take the city forward.” Sydney 2030 Vision Sydney 2030 Vision, “Vision in 2030: A blueprint for Sydney 2030,” City of Sydney Council, http://www.sydney2030.com.au/vision-in-2030/resources (accessed 17 March 2012).

05 DIVERSITY TOWARDS A BETTER CITY
To create the linkage with the area, it is significant to address the social trends and issues in the society; as a social condenser, it is to reignite the connectivity of communities in the area. Thinking on the level of the city area as a whole, it is essential to articulate the design with the Sydney Vision 2030. On the individual level, the studies on work life balance (WLB) and the position of LEISURE in lives provide the insight on how the hybrid can become the medium to develop the common language within the city. In which, the WLB always stays on the discussion list, with the increasing of work hours that decreases the involvement in families and leisure time arrangements (communications among families members/ childcare); and how flexibilities in offices (arrangement of office work spaces/ flexible working hours) with the provision of leisure (leisure in workplace/ breakout zones/ activities in individual leisure time) are one of the strategies to maintain a better quality and balance in life.

By interweaving with imaginations, this project tries to dissect the motif and create a unique narrative to the piece of art as the project brief. Within the Project, the Doors and windows are the set tools in expressing the narratives.
The exploration and understanding of architectonics
02 The Narrative
01 Development of Project Brief
Edward Hopper: City of Sunlight
• thinking through books • darker spaces to reflect the isolation
• folding windows with seats to reflect the inhabitant’s relieved spirit • working desk besides sliding windows symbolizes the control of physically and spiritually openness to the world
01. The woman lives in isolation at a hotel under a high density living environment, ie. City. 02. She is sitting closed to her neighbors’ windows, (all blacked out in painting). This further stresses that this woman is physically being isolated. 03. She is alone by herself, ie. isolated spiritually
Analysis of the painting: City of Sunlight
A Woman; isolated both physically and spiritually, loves to think; thinking about the future or problems that she might have; Thus, she loves to read books as she likes to find answers about her problems encountered in the life

2013 is the year for celebrating the Canberra 100th birthday. Back in 1912, architect Walter Burley Griffin and his wife; architect Marion Mahony Griffin from Chicago; together won the international competition to design the capital city of Australia. In 1913, the capital city was named as Canberra and built according to Griffin’s modified plan. However, throughout the years, their ideal city did not turn fully into reality.
1. Urban architecture experiments 2. Ambitious projects as meaningful product of a continuum discussion of economical, planning and political issues 3. Public water and land transportation system 4. Alternative and exemplary mode of living 5. Eco-park structures
MU NIT GC OM SIN HO U
Our entry addresses the Griffin’s and Marion’s Original Vision of an ideal city, which is inspired by the City Beautiful. While maintaining Canberra as a Green landscape city, it cherishes the Country’s multiculturalism and specified itself as the showcase of the Country for local, national and international level. Along with its current issues, we emphasize the idea of: City as the forum for:
The Capithetical competition is the ideas competition to create a hypothetical capital city for the 21st century and beyond. This competition recalls the debate on the Griffin’s Legacy: the unrealized works from his original planning.

The symbolic and spiritual tension of Griffins’ plan created by the underlying concept of an architectural horizontal city immersed within the nature of the existing and man-made bush land would be elevated by the horizontal geometries and proportions of our proposed urban architecture. The three experimental projects will celebrate the best architectural gestures found in Canberra, which, arguably, are the living testimony of the Griffins’ legacy.

Film Making 2011 Summer Sem l Elective: Cinematic Space l Tutor: Dean Utian
TIMEo Time flies, don’t let time runs away, catch it and use it wisely.
Time, is an individual assignment of Cinematic Space, a course taken in 2011. This course allows us to explore the interrelationship between the cinematic and architectural experiences. They both are an expression of art that create and define experiences of places and space. This short film uses the journey of marbles travelling along various places; to communicate the ideas,
“Time is Money”. It aims to convey the idea of experiencing different challenges in life to the audiences. Eventually, the “key” uniquely links up the interweaved time and spaces. The process of chasing the marbles and picking up the “key” symbolize catching the time by oneself. The alarm in the film guides the audiences to realize that they should not let time to pass meaninglessly.
01. Tries to wake up and switch off the alarm but failed. While the glass of water on the side was accidentially tippied over. 02. When the water turns into marbles, the audiences are brought into the dream through this clue. 03. 04. The marbles run over the edge. This indicates the start of their journey. 05. A reminder to the audiences that the water has been turned into marbles. 06. Water in the character’s hand has turned into marbles and dropped onto the floor while she is asleep and not noticing the situation. 07. The marble journey: travel from indoor to outdoor through a grey corridor with repeated columns on the side. 08. It runs till to the stairs at the end of the alley and terminates at the last step. 09. The character chases after the marble and finally she pickes it up.
10. It shows to the audiences that the picked up marble has been transformed to a key. 11. The clock illustrates the time reverse with the background frames playing back the past events. 12. The alarm rings again and displays only one minute has passed in realtiy. Hence it is a clue to show the chasing of marble is just a dream. 13. One might puzzle about the “key” in the dream as it appears in the character’s hand realistically. (The “key” is the symbol of time. It expresses that the character finally realizes that “Time is Money”.) 14. The white curtain and opened windows, indicate the character’s new insight towards life. 15. Trees under the sun (views looking out from windows) represent the rebirth of the character. 16. Final message of the film followed by the credit screen.
