MODULAR STRUCTURES: TEMPORARY EXHIBITION GALLERY Professional Diploma in Architectural Studies,HKU SPACE,2008 My project is a temporary exhibition gallery design with modular system, which was proposed by the head of architecture department (HKU SPACE) to join a design competition held by “Perspective Magazine” in 2008. Four exhibits were selected from the Hong Kong – Shenzhen Biennale Exhibition to display in this art gallery. Structure independently, mobility, transportable and simple installation are the core ideas of this project. It allows different combinations, which adaptable in multiple sites. Yau Ma Tei Community Centre Rest Garden,Kowloon is the first proposed site (above).

REVITALIZATION: CHINESE MEDICAL BATH Professional Diploma in Architectural Studies,HKU SPACE,2009 Proposed site is in Dragon Garden, Hong Kong, where Chinese Medical Bath is designed for revitalization. My main ideas are to provide a higher privacy and to create a peaceful atmosphere for the visitors to have variety medical treatments, like baths. Baths and function rooms are located base on 20 of section lines. I proposed with interesting spatial experiences, such as, circulations provide different level of views / lighting and people can interact with the landscape.

THES IS: FRAMEWORK BA(Hons) ARCHITECTURE, KINGSTON UNIVERSITY LONDON,2011 ‘Permanence’ From September 2010 to May 2011, the studio looked at the idea of ‘Permanence’ in relation to the built environment. The first location in Cornhill (Bishopsgate, London) at the beginning of a route known to the Romans as Ermine Street which passed through the city wall travelling towards Lincoln. The Second location set in Northumbria, which have to understand the rationale of a significant building in detail, Seaton Delaval Hall by Sir John Vanbrugh. At the end of the journey, a small museum is designed for conservation and display of Roman antiquity on a waterlogged woodland site situated on a stretch of the Roman route Ermine Street in Hertfordshire. In the thesis study, the ageing surfaces, forms of this city fabric and uncover its historical underpinning is aimed. This portfolio documents my thesis – Framework – investigation. A poetic of an architectural object is always in the deepest of my memories, although there are lots of redevelopment or conservation project currently in the world. However, ‘framework’ is one of the architectural elements, which is fine, detail and have the power to change the interior atmosphere, interested me. In this year, I was especially inspired by Gottfried Semper’s saying, ‘Tectonics of the frame, in which lightweight, linear components are assembled so as to embody a spatial matrix and the stereotomics of the earthwork, formed out if the repetitious stacking of heavy-weight units.‘


ERMINE STREET JOURNEY -

Cornhill, London

BA(Hons) ARCHITECTURE, KINGSTON UNIVERSITY LONDON,2011 In Birchin Lane of Cornhill, I was inspired by the shop front with a very fine and detail of steel manufactured framework. It tells of my thesis – Framework: Mass masonry with light infill frames.

ERMINE STREET JOURNEY -

Seaton Delaval Hall, Northumbria

BA(Hons) ARCHITECTURE, KINGSTON UNIVERSITY LONDON,2011 Sir John Venbrugh built the Hall in Baroque style from 1719 to 1728 and it have been listed Grade I in 1730. This is the final masterpiece of Vanbrugh, a comparatively modest mansion yet unique in the structural audacity of its style. It is located in a natural landscape with lots of field nearby and stretching over more than 900 years. This style had been lost in Britain after Sir John Venbrugh’s death in 1724. In 1822, there is a fire burnt out the central block. Although it was repaired and re-roofed in 1860, some stones blackened with smoke and destroyed are still left over(opposite).

MUSEUM OF MILDENHALL TREASURE BA(Hons) ARCHITECTURE, KINGSTON UNIVERSITY LONDON ,2011 This model shows the core idea of the thesis. The masonry element seems to grow from the ground to create walls and roof. Also,exploring the plans, from organic form to elegant rectangular form, roof and walls are developed to respond different views of site.

DETAILS BA(Hons) ARCHITECTURE, KINGSTON UNIVERSITY LONDON ,2011 Concrete construction with ten load-bearing walls and lightweight sky-frames, which are constructed in raft foundation. Solar gain, concrete allows passive solar gain to maximized during winter and it absorbs internal heart gain during the day to prevent overheating. In addition, large glazing facing south, and roof system help to reduce gain. Natural ventilation, the orientation sets up thermal currents within the building that ensure natural ventilation. The building not only has cross ventilation to prevent overheating, but also roof overhangs increase incoming flow of air. Artificial lighting, this building use down light to wash the wall, avoids direct lighting to affect the Artefact. Also the temperature of the exhibition spaces need to keep in 10-22C and humidity need to be 45-50% for metal Artefact.
