CONTENTS

I am a motivated landscape architecture undergraduate student currently studying in the University of Hong Kong. Throughout the curriculum, I have been continuously enriching my skills, techniques and above all, design insights to visually express myself with intricate narratives. I find joy and passion in tackling challenging tasks, in dreaming of and developing creative schemes that connect the subtle details I extract from observations with bigger, site-penetrating thoughts. My interest in landscape architecture is not new, as from early age, I enjoyed dealing with various plants, while continuously exposing myself to different forms of drawings. As a student, my interest in 3D modelling and mapping heightened as well throughout the years, which I expressed through the 3D modelling of my high school. My decision to venture into the field of landscape architecture bases itself in such firm and lasting drivers that I have continuously developed with vigor. As a self-motivated individual, a confident speaker and an active, open-minded team player with multicultural experience aiding my creativity and enthusiasm, I wish to begin my professional career as a landscape architect by becoming a dedicated design team member who can contribute to memorable landscape design practices.

01. HYDROLOGIC CORRIDOR LANDSCAPES FOR WATER SECURITY DURING URBAN EXPANSION : LUANG PRABANG, LAOS Studio Advisor : Ashley Kelly, Xiaoxuan Lu Laos, Spring 2018 This project addresses rising water insecurity in rural Luang Prabang from booming tourism with the introduction of China-Laos Railway and suggests decentralized methods of local-scale typologies for comparably inexpensive mitigation solutions that would ultimately benefit villagers' livelihoods and sustainable urban development.

GROUNDWATER OVEREXTRACTION

This project focuses on water provision and security issues in Luang Prabang, Laos, with regards to the town already being at its tourism capacity and the likelihood of growing demand after the operation of China-Laos Railway, which is under construction. In a matter of just two decades, Luang Prabang has seen almost ninefold increase in visitors; and to cope with this surge of tourism, the town has continuously changed itself into a touristic destination, driving residents out to the peripheries. Outside the town center, however, chance of finding safe and reliable water source is very scarce; this inherent insecurity, combined with estimates expecting another tenfold increase in tourists after commencement of the Railway in 2021 causing already-full Luang Prabang to expand outwards, puts more burden on the water provision in the area, making current infrastructures and the ones to come obsolete and ineffective. In this sense, the project aims to speculate the urban expansion and its possible consequences disrupting the fragile water security in rural Luang Prabang, and to suggest a subsequent local-scale, sub-watershed protection typologies for establishment of affordable, decentralized methods of securing usable water that would complement centralized water provision infrastructure lacking in both coverage and volume. The project, while mitigating sparks of water shortages for villages during urban expansion until complete establishment of water infrastructure, can transform into schemes also contributing to the municipality's long-term planning and development goal of heritage conservation and eco-tourism after. The scheme ultimately aims to promote participation of different stakeholders for integration of watershed protection into sustainable urban development.

SERENITY IN THE CITY CONNECTING BACK TO THE HILL : OI MAN ESTATE, KOWLOON Studio Advisor : Natalia Echeverri, Bin Jiang Hong Kong, Spring 2017 This design suggests integration of scattered and segregated spaces near and around a public housing estate into the residents' lives, to bring back rich greenery back to their livelihoods and further enrich them by introducing a refreshing juxtaposition of tranquility and openness with landscape. CONTEXT & CONCEPT

O i M a n E s ta t e , s p a t i a l l y d i s c o n n e c t e d in patches yet near much greenery, has promising opportunities for enriching the spatial experience within and around. Through understanding the undividable relationship between communities and their public space, this studio aims to design for the people within the public housing estate; the concept of connecting back to the hill, where most green spaces are neglected or out of reach, is the driver of the design aiming to "return" the hillside landscape and experience back to the residents of Oi Man Estate and the public, to knit their lifestyle again to the tranquility and refreshing feeling of openness, the desirability that has been consistently lost in Hong Kong.

Utilizing the original carpark podium space and nearby green, yet empty and unused space on top of Ho Man Tin Freshwater Service Reservoir, users follow a link above tree canopies that leads them to the vast meadow on top of the reservoir that also allows them to reach other public facilities and parks faster. Gaining spatial tranquility and desirability back to residents' everyday experience, the project aims to once again make the estate become part of the larger connection through integration of hard and the soft in banded juxtaposition.

03. SCULPTURAL LANDSCAPE POST-EXPO REVITALIZATION : SHANGHAI EXPO SITE, MAINLAND CHINA Studio Advisor : Yifeng Lin Shanghai, Fall 2017 This design suggests utilization of landscape as typologies to control and improve circulation, providing destinations and a healthy balance of residence and greenery at the heart of Shanghai, thereby adding another layer to cultural significance of the post-Expo site. CONTEXT : GREEN RATIO

Situated at the heart of Shanghai, Shanghai Expo site has been largely left underused due to oversized scale, which inevitably has led to lack of destination within the site. This project aims to, by context analysis, translation and implementation, revitalize the area by suggesting an integration of landscape and economic corridor that is in line with preserving the current cultural significance of the Expo site. Sculptural landscape, by linking active cultural destinations and becoming a larger landscape "sculpture" itself, suggests a landscape typology of urban development that harmonizes community use, economic consideration and cultural conservation.

LANDSCAPE AS A SCULPTURE ITSELF

The initial analysis showed excessive physical / psychological boundaries, unpreferable circulation and lack of destination in the area. This analysis was then utilized in establishment of translation of spatial reconfiguration and manipulation. Using the patches of urban grid that were sub-divided for improvement of human-scale circulation, nodes were created with topographic manipulation for specific guidance of flow in the site, whether diverging or converging. These features, allowing concentration or dispersion of flow with different landscape or architectural elements, aims to provide enjoyable and clear circulation in the area. The design then suggests optimal utilization of the site by creating a contrast between green area and dense urban area (residential), which maximizes urban usage and green ratio of the area. Overall, the nodes distribute along the desired corridor to a riverfront that would connect to other side of Huangpu river, enhancing cultural value of Expo site.

1. Block division into human scale : encouraging diversity and heterogeneity

2. East, west and metro movement facilitation : "pinching" landscape for clear circulation

3. Central node and meadow : possibilities for communal space usage

4. Accessibility to waterfront and Ho Tan Park : establishment of circulation linking Pu Xi and Pu Dong waterfront

04. STREET, COMMA, MARKET NEGOTIATING STREET SPACE : YAU MA TEI FRUIT WHOLESALES MARKET Studio Advisor : Natalia Echeverri, Bin Jiang Hong Kong, Spring 2017 Street, Comma, Market recognizes heterogeneity of space usage in Yau Ma Tei Fruit Wholesales Market, where different strips of the street are occupied by different users in dichotomy, day and night. The design, while coping with extreme fluctuations in space occupation, aims to mediate between stakeholders, providing pedestrians and patients with protection while keeping the street's original versatile role.

The versatility and polarity of the street usage called for designs with broader intentions, in terms of dealing with the two distinguished main users: fruit market workers and elders visiting chinese medicine hospital. The original pedestrian path along the residence was completely unused at night, but was occupied by waiting patients during the day, while the situation was vice versa for roadside, which would completely be filled with boxes and trolleys during the night and considerably empty during the day; usage of the space therefore had to be mediated between two very different usages - the project, in this sense, aims to facilitate the fluctuation of street activities spatially.

Concentrated structures near entrance provide enclosure and protection from street environment
