01 City Revival in Old Town Urban Design of People's South High Speed Road

SCUT Underground Fourth Year Design Studio:City Revival Personal Project Instructor:Liu Hui,Wei Zongcai Date:04/2017-06/2017 ALL DRAWING IN THIS PART ARE DOWN BY MYSELF The site is located at the viaduct of Renmin South Road, Guangzhou City, Guangdong Province, China where used to be the pioneer of reform and opening up policy.The commercial location and cultural tourism resources are much more superior compared with the traffic status.The crowded driveway and noisy voice affect people's daily live increasingly. To remove or not to remove is a problem?We should devote more energy to exploring the potential of this abandoned urban areas and innovate design strategies to repair deteriorating neighborhoods.

Site Analysis The site is located at the viaduct of Renmin South Road, Guangzhou City, Guangdong Province, China. The traffic inside the venue interferes with each other and the quality of traffic is poor. The urban green space around the site obviously can not meet the needs of the residents living nearby. In addition there are a large number of historical sites within the venue need to be protected, so the design needs to focus on resolving these conflicts.

Live+Tourist with Urban Reconnection After the conflict between residents and elevated traffic has become increasingly apparent. We try to adjust traffic to i m p rove t h e l i v i n g e n v i ro n m e n t o f nearby residents. Reconstruction and reconnection designed to increase the vitality of the neighborhood,Promoting the revival of the decay block. New urban green space and open space system will attract more tourists replacing the original transit traffic .Eventually, to become the new window of the city is to promote the revival of the decayed neighborhoods. 5

02 Ecological-oriented Shoreline Urban Design of Sanduao District,Ningde City Internship Program Date:08/2017-11/2017 Team Work for Urban Design Individual Work for Ecological-oriented Shoreline ALL DRAWING IN THIS PART ARE DOWN BY MYSELF The site is located in Ningde City,Fujian Provience,China a seaside city surrounded by mountains.To develope and construct the new town,reclamation will be the most suitable choice. In this project,we try to seek the most ecological way to complete the design in many field like planning of reclamation,ecological-oriented shoreline as well as the landscape design for the featured mangrove wetlands. Seafront city center will face two challenge ,the flood from mountain and the tide from sea.Therefore the design of flood storage lake is one of the most important thing not only for security but also economic. To response to all the possible flooding water level,I make several cascade shoreline and water control system to protect the city from flooding,which also provide a great view in low water level.

Flood Control and Waterlogging Prevention

Flood water level Facing the treats from mountain flood and tide,flood control dam and seawall are not enough.While,the flood storage lake seems to be a special role together with the water control system.Flood diversion canal and cascade of shoreline with landscape are made to prevent the city from the flood and waterlogging.

Ecological-oriented Shoreline

Three different kind of shoreline are designed due to the different scale and different grade.Using vegetation and shop floor with unequal hardness to creat a energetic water space including living,fishing and military which will meet various needs from residents and tourists.

Mangrove Wetland and Forest Park is the showplace of the process of natural systems.The aim of this part focuses on establishing a series of conservation and re-habitation strategies on sites and emphasizes the site as a seeding progress for the natural systems,as well as enviromental education,eco-tourism and cultural sustainability.What's more,the mangrove wetland is connected with the inner lake water system,means that the wetland will be involved with the adjustment of the water level,which will readuce the risk of flooding or waterlogging. The southern site of the featured mangrove wetlands is the conservation core area with strict conservation policy. The main concept of conservation is to restore and re-habit various types of mangrove habitats to emerge various ecosystem which existhere historically.The other reason for the exist of the mangrove forest is that it will enhance the security of the seawall.

03 Share the Room,Get the Home Living Concept Designed for Low-end Population Personal Project About Social Hotspot Location:Beijing,China Date:11/2017-12/2017 ALL DRAWING IN THIS PART ARE DOWN BY MYSELF Tens of thousands of migrant workers are being forced out of their homes in Beijing under a citywide clean-up campaign in the aftermath of a fire that killed over a dozen people in Nov.18,2017. The forced demolitions and evictions—the biggest the Chinese capital has ever seen in over a decade—have raised concerns that the government no longer even tepidly welcomes people from poorer parts of the country dwell in its crowded mega cities. It’s a reminder that social inequality is festering in China’s biggest cities, home to millions of both rich and poorer people. Can we seek a creative way to help these special social communities and build a better home together? I'd like to introduce you a new living concept design applicable to all income groups,which will provide a more safe and comfortable living environment.

Development Right Get married and have baby Purchase the addition right to expand the room floor area ratio for future baby.

People with financial problems canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford the high rent. Most migrant workers with low paid would like to share the room and space with oters,for they have the same situation.

Purchase the development right to construct the develop unit,which means the less public unit using right remained.

Find the lover and build loving home. Share the room with other roommates.The room space is limted,while the public spce is enough for using freely.

With revenue growth,people will share the room with less people,even have their own room Get more private space in the room,find their own interest.
