Personal Statement of Jialin.Tang Everyone has different reasons for studying architecture. For me, it mainly divided into three phases. Phase one is enlightening stage. When I was a child, I have a great passion for stacking a building with Mah-jong over and over again without any purpose. I do not have the consciousness of architecture at that time, but just experience the happiness of creation. Phase two is development stage. During high school period, I learned that architecture is a very interesting profession with flexible expression, such as sketch, render and model with which I can be expressed my own ideas freely. Therefore, the intriguing part of architecture to me in this stage lies in its unique way of working. Phase three is goal-setting stage. After entering the university, I really came into contact with the architecture and understood that architect is not only a career but also a responsibility. Architects, to a certain extent, can solve social problems, for example, improve the living environment of the poor with low price. Every breakthrough on architecture may bring convenience to human’s life. Up to now, the sense of responsibility inspires me to study architecture step by step. The fours year of Architecture education at Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University (XJTLU) was a valuable learning experience. As an independent Sino-Foreign cooperative university jointly founded by Xi’an Jiaotong University China and the University of Liverpool UK, XJTLU is committed to creating an internationalized educational environment. Four years’study not only helped me laying a solid theoretical foundation for my further study in the UK, but also greatly improved my ability of self-management. In terms of academic knowledge, I accepted centralized training on Structure and Construction, Environmental Science, Professional Practice and Architecture History. Different architectural genre and concepts from all over the world made me understand architecture from different angles, which greatly broadened my horizons and constantly inspired me to create my own architectural concept. Meanwhile, teamwork made me realize that a project cannot be completed by one person and teamwork spirit is sometimes more important than personal level. In XJTLU, education quality is being stringently monitored and students are encouraged to self-manage their life. I think that the ability of self-management mainly lies in time arrangement, document management and the logical capability, which plays a vital role in successful completion of a task. The expression of ideas is very important to me. I learned to try with different ways of expressing my ideas, such as physical model, virtual model, sketches, photos, and render. These methods can not only let others know my ideas, but also help me think thoroughly. In terms of software, I was trained to skillfully use the software of AutoCAD, SketchUp, Vary for Sket chUp, Lumion, Rhino, Grasshopper, Photoshop, Indesign,


Illustrator and Microsoft Office Serial Software. I also know that software is not a substitute for a architect, so I won’t let software limited my thinking with software aided design. At the end of the university, I successfully got Bachelor of Engineering in Architecture (UoL Degree) with Upper Second Class Honours due to hard work. But this does not mean the end of learning, but a new beginning. I need to study more to make up for my shortcomings. The main reason why I would like to pursue postgraduate study in Architecture is based upon my current internship experience at Architectural Design and Research Institute of Tsinghua University, which is a first class national architectural design and research institute. Having engaged in the architectural design for more than four months, I found my deficiencies. During the university, the pursuit of a good project is new concept and special design. Through internships, I realized that a good project is likely to be a simple one and the attention to details often decides the success of a project, such as materials application, space construction, the subtle changes of layout, etc. These details influenced the atmosphere of a construction and meet customers’ needs. In addition, building structure, price and construction problems also influenced the implementation of a construction. In order to find the effective solution of these problems and achieve higher career development in architectural design, I am submitting this document in support of my application for acceptance into your postgraduate programme to absorb the quintessence of both the western and eastern countries as well as discover new horizons of architectural design. I hope strongly I could acquire the most advanced theories in the international learning environment that your prestigious university offers. China's present architectural industry still exist a lot of problems, for example, in the past 20 years the traditional buildings were gradually replaced by commercial buildings with poor quality with the rapid development of the construction industry. China’s construction industry needs a healthy and sustainable development. I am going for further studying of this area abroad to remit this issue. I feel it is my compelling responsibility and big honor. In conclusion, I sincerely hope you could take my application into serious consideration. At the same time, thank you for giving me a chance to express myself.

Futhermore, 3d Voronois are used in explode architectureal form and interior space. Strategies analysed and represented using digital tools, in the field of generative systems and parametric design. At the same time effort will be made so that the building is designed to be built with modern fabrication methods, minimising manual labour.

My concept is timeline. The building has a linear space and the exhibition area is arranged by time. I fold the building in 3d space. Therefore, part of the building will reconnect. It means something happens in 1850 will have relationship to 2050. There are thousands kind of ways to fold the building, which means there are thousand kind of circulations. I put the Museum on the existing buildings. By doing this, I can save the space, I can use the existing buildings as structure, I can connect the existing buildings as a whole.

Examples of selected voronois

I start with a cube. I create random points on the surface of the cubes. After that I generate 3d voronoi base on the points. I change the number of points; therefore I get different groups of voronois. Then pick the vornnois, which could be used in my museum according to the room quality constraints.

The Museum is very light as it made of timber. The museum will be hanged on the existing building by cables. This area will be h i gh l y de n s i ty pl a c e , s o there will many supporting point could be used.

In the 2050 the buildinds are very dense. The surrounding buildings will offer a good places for the cables to hang the museum.


The challenging point of the structural design is I should use the technique that could be realized in 2015 to construct the 2050 museum. Therefore, any high-tech material like carbon fiber is not allowed in the design. I choose the timber panel wall as the structure as they are light and easy to construct. The timber panel wall is prefabricated and assembled on site.


The site is located in the Yangcheng Lake Peninsula, which is famous for its crab framing. The site is beside the shore, and there are also some inner lakes and channels distribute in the site. There are three road pass thought the site, a main road for the motor vehicle, a path for the bicycles, and a side walk. Several factors are extracted from the site. There are four pieces of land, three roads, and two lakes
