01 FLOATING LOWLINE Easy Construction for Activating Urban Grey Space
As a material market restructed from housing village, the 1.2 square kilometers Jiuxing wholy possesses the right to build by it self as a conglomerate, and reacts in an unbelievably quick speed at meeting need for the bussiness and residents officially or spontaneously. Can architects spot the situation, and even think earlier, further and deeper? For me, architectural strategies should be changing pertinently with the social condition and other disciplines in the era in which changes happen every day. No sterotypes about either architecture or congnition should be remained in mind. This portfolio is my 6-year efforts of solution providers for GREY SPACE OVER OCUUPIED BY VEHICLES, for NEW WAYS OF HERITAGE TYPOLOGY PRESERVATION, f o r S E N E S C E N T D I S T R I C T, f o r S U S TA I N A B L E M A N U F A C T U R E I N

01 FLOATING LOWLINE -- Easy Construction for Activating Urban Grey Space Program: 5,695 m2 Elevated Road Extension (Shanghai) Fourth Year Studio Work (AR403) Solo work Duration: 9/2015-11/2015 Instructor: Prof. Lin Wang
In the city whose privileged class is efficiency, elevated roads and metro lines are growing recklessly, speeding up the city from the large scale, but tearing apart people's living space for normal life from the small scale. In this struggle, people compromise and adapt ceaselessly. At the end, dozens of streets are robbed from the pedestrians by vehicles. However, there can still be rebels, hoping to reclaim freedom again, and even coexist, both for the efficiency and leisure.

Grandma: It's cheaper to select necessities from the flea market before going to the commercial street.
Grandson: The bread sold here as breakfast is delicious.
Grandma: window=wall=floor? Walls introduce the light, floor introduce fresh air and trees. The lowline is like an open street, only safer.
Grandpa: I go to the park for exercise every morning from home. With the lowline, I will not have to detour.

Grandpa: It's time for lunch, the huge lope goes up dirrectly from inside the park, I go home gradually and unconsciously.
Grandma: When picking up the child after school, I bring him to the library to develop good reading habbits for him.
The family: After the kid has finished homework at night, w e co m e t o g e t h e r t o e n j o y family time. The road is always dangerous and fast up and down. But in the middle, we are safe and sound.
Parents: It's a shortcut from the metro station to home. Moreover, having a good chat on the public balconies is a chance to enjoy a slow life after work..
02 VERTICAL HERITAGE ---- Multilevel Application for Shikumen ( 石库门 ) Preservation Program: 117.461 m2 Commercial Complex (Shikumen Area, Downtown Shanghai) Fourth Year Studio Work (AR403) Solo Work Time: 11/2015-1/2016 Instructor: Prof. Wenjun Ma
Shikumen ( 石 库 门 ) generates Shanghaineses' character of being open and warmhearted. I credit this to its multilayers between privacy and public-- outer street ( 街 道 ), main Long ( 主 弄 ), SubLong ( 支 弄 ), Atrium ( 天 井 ), and private rooms. The project is a commercial complex in Shanghai which makes use of the Shikumen typology to stratify and interlace public and private program to create new communities and encourage unconcious and spontaneous mutualism. By releasing proper functions to corresponding public layers, the complex can begin to cause gossip culture again that the society chasing for pure efficiency itself avoids. This warmheartedness and intermingling is something a Shikumen can bring back into the culture that discarded it.

City ages inevitably no matter how healthy newly designed. To disentangle numerous problems generated, investigation and rigorous thinking are conducted, keys are figured out, spacial intervention are created circularly. Any intervention should challenge the city's original development pattern regarding to its corresponding key. The renewal operations in downtown are so-called TCM Physiotherapy, or careful minimally invasive surgery.

04 TROMBE CHATEAU ---- Local Construction & Materials for Modern Manufacture Program: 6,158 m2 Chateau Design (East Helan Mountain, Ningxia Province, China) 2015 Avantgarde Architects Studio (AR315) Solo Work Time: 3/2015-4/2015 Instructor: Xi Shi
Helan Mountain in Ningxia Province is identified as China's best place to develop wine industry for its primitiveness and its climate, suitable for growing grapes but not economic for wine production. To prevent high energy consumption, chateaus should be sustainable both in ecology and in the ways and materials that meets the traditions and capacities of local construction. The concept is to bring a breath to the chateau. The breath adjusts the chateau's micro environment periodically versus different seasons, day and night, and also brings to the traditional local rammed earth buildings a new form based on a new technology of aerodynamics in a way without complex maintenance.

Botanists tell us that before forest, pioneer flora like lichen and vine occupy and exploit fields. After forest flourish, these pioneers won't disappear but overlap in a more complex form. Likewise, a healthy city is composed of various stratums and types of living. Besides permanent residence, there should also exist changeable ones allowing self-rebuild in a certain frame, which consist the soul of the poor but laborious migratory labor families. These residential lichen will bring diversity, stability, and biomass growth, especially in a city of springboard city in China.
