Kaleidoscope ----- Unexpected Everyday Citylife | Grocery Store with Re Instructor: Mrs. Kathryn Dean Studio Work Solo

Site Location

Cherokee St

S. Jeffrson

This project is named “Kaleidoscope” to explore the unexpected but familiar interwoven of multiple urban experiences. It is a surrealistic experience in daily life. The program is a grocery store with a series of urban facilities in four blocks located at the crossing between S Jefferson and Cherokee St in south St.Louis. The “Kaleidoscope” is used as a method to link the various layers of city activities through different transparencies and reflections.

Consumerism in Everyday Life

The “Kaleidoscope” for the urban design in these four blocks is invisible. It is based on a projection of existing buildings and void spaces to suture the context, including parking, horizontal and vertical green space, buildings and resting spaces with benches. For the grocery store, the “Kaleidoscope” is a visible phenomenon. There are two glass clusters of kaleidoscopes around two interfaces that come from contextual clues – an urban interface and a garden interface. The typical deep storefront creates an extended zone of vision between inside inhabitant and entering customers. The garden entry is inspired by the strange vertical landscape in the existing context. The new urban interface creates an extension of street to strengthen the visual interaction, and makes the “street fronts” inside the grocery store. The garden interface provides an opportunity to explore the unexpected cityscape inside the everyday program by juxtaposing produce with fruit trees and circulations to the upper level. The whole project is a surrealistic montage of everyday city life and unexpected, wired but beautiful cityscape.

Topology Transformation | Kinesthetic Learning Center | Sep, 2010 – Instructor: Mr. Toru Hasegawa & Mr. Mark Collins Studio Work Solo


– Dec, 2010

This project is trying to build a spatial stimulation for kinesthetic learning. Kinesthetic Learning is one of the basic learning methods based on the physical body movements. The learning process could be seen as three periods: kinesthetic development, kinesthetic means and kinesthetic disorder. They turn to be three loops interacted with each other in the building. With Processing, the designer develops the circulation loops; builds basic sections depending on the typical learning gestures; then merge them together via topologic transformation. The whole design is a bridge between the movement of human body and the perception of architectural space.

Landscape Structures| Procedurlism | Sep, 2010 Instructor: Mr. Toru Hasegawa & Mr. Mark Collins Digital Fabrication Solo


This is a parametric conceptual design for a structure system for a high rise and the landscape. Based on clear mathematics logic with the tool of Grasshopper, the designer gets a serious of variations which merging the spiral high rise with an observation deck, skirt buildings, landscape in an all-in-one gradual changing system. Simple but elegant, it show the full potential of parametric design.

Dew on Cobweb | Spatial Prototype Development | April, 2012 Instructor: Mr. Robert Booth Digital Fabrication Solo

Developed from the natural prototype of dew on cobwebs and tectonic prototype of rope, the spatial model is a self-supporting system with various space experiences. The further evolution makes it into a pavilion covered by gradual changing patterns merging the interior and open space.

Lens Bridge | Environmental Education Center | Sep, 2011- Dec, 2011 Instructor: Mr. Brad Cloepfil Studio Work Solo

“Bridge� means a connection as well as a communication. Located at downtown Manhattan, spreading through the street space and three subway stops, this Environmental Education Center gets deeply involved into the active city life in New York City to amplify the site spirit. Lifted high from the street level, the building creates multiple layers of street space, learning center and park, for pedestrians and students to pass by, study and hang out. The city is part of the campus. In addition, since students could go through the subway in campus, there are also improvements for the underground subway space: the lenses to bring day light and some enlargement at the entrance and exit to create a city living room. This learning center is a non-stop communication between the city and the people living it.

512 Shelter | Construction Experiment | Sep, 2008 – Mar, 2009 Instructor: Mrs. Hong Ying Team leader: Ying Zheng | Project team: Zhiyi Liu, Hui Yang, Zhen liu Design/Build Studio | Built project won Excellent Project Prize in Co

It is the first students’ Design|Build studio in Southwest Jiaotong University. Concentrating on how to use the cheap materials and low-tech to help the Sichuan Earthquake victims rebuild shelters. Built with PVC pipe supporting, bamboo panels and zinc panels, it is a system that can be easily built and spread everywhere. The shelter is supposed for a temporary transition; however, it could also be treated a small house if the inner skin and basement can be renewed from time to time.

Hinge | High Rise Commercial Complex | Feb, 2010 – May, 2010 Instructor: Mr.Paul J. Donnelly & Mr.Tao Xu Studio Work Solo

Located in the center of Chengdu City, this project is orientated to be an iconic twotower landmark, contending various commercial spaces, offices and a high end hotel. Given the narrow area of site, the huge areas of building, the solution comes out with the concept of “Hinge” which means a joint that holds two different parts together so that one can swing relatively to the other. It is the synergy of complex functions as well as the structure system. Hinge Tower uses the frame and bracing frame structure, which is like a network package and support from all directions to the building , making higher load and larger interior space with less columns.
