MASTERPLAN

01 NEW YORK AQUATRIUM The site is a place closely related to the ocean. The water related areas, such as port, dock, littoral corridor and beach, are distributed along the coastline. Here, all plans for waterfront space transformation are designed to preserve or restore intimacy between city and water, and to return urban space to residents. However, due to the excessively strong limitations, the rigid combination of sites and the characteristics of site boundaries are obvious. Is this really the waterfront space that the residents want, and it's worth our thinking. We try to explore a new design of outdoor space of a variety of functional needs of different groups and different forms of space, the integration of thinking, and consider whether the new type of space, to meet the needs of different groups, so as to bring new vitality to the city.

SITE EVOLUTION Oramental Islands Main buildings and ornamental Islands

Site in 1609

Site in 2017

Proposed Floating Park

The circle is separated by two curves.

The circle is divided into two pieces with one curve, and one side for the main building on the side of the ocean

MASTERPLAN

A natural slope is formed on the side of the site to form a natural slope.

Main buildings and ornamental Islands

Ecological island

Ornamental Islands

The steps of slope formation provide visitors with different experiences of interaction with the ocean.

Planting as much as possible to provide a suitable place for the local marine organisms.

Ecological island

The circle is separated by a straight line.

The site is raised by a natural slope that is created to give as many lessons as possible to the ocean, and an indoor viewing site is created.

The site is raised by a natural slope.

Visitors are circulated on the periphery to form a terrace to form a platform for recreation and appreciation.

A repose step and an open-air theatre have been created.

Tourists are circulated on the periphery of the circular facilities, which can explore the ocean from all directions, and also the entrance to the ground building.

The design of the roof and the island is to mimic the natural scene.

02 POLLUTED RIVERSIDE REGENERATION

STATUS QUO

By choosing an identical river and an experimental spot, I was trying to solve the most common problem towards morden Chinese cities. By site observation,we got an overall image of it: polluted soil and water,bared banks and abandonde facilities. the urban brownfield lacking attraction need to be remediated urgently.

GUIDELINES FOR WETLAND REMEDIATION 1. Choose salt-tolerant plants 2. Design facilities for people to access wetland while reduce disturbance on nature.

PRAISE 1 Pioneer

Construted watland & Intack wetland.

PRAISE 2 Succession

The former is construcred by human and will jion together in future, the latter is exisred in site now and it will be protected from human access in order to maintain its original state.

PRAISE 3 Climax

GUIDELINES FOR FOREST REMEDIATION 1. Choose wind-proof plants to forn windbreak which can protect soil 2. Choose plants which have strong adaptability and fast frowth rate as poineers

PRAISE 1 Pioneer

Open forest & Thick forest.

PRAISE 2 Succession

The open forest combines with buildings and other facilities, shaping space for human activities. The thick forest is relatiely enclosed, it only allows people to pass through and guatantees growth of forest patches will not be interfered.

PRAISE 3 Climax


GUIDELINES FOR FARMLAND CONSTRUCTION 1. Choose nitregen fixing plants as pioneers to fertilize soil. 2. Carefully select trees and crops to develope agroforestry in farmland.

PRAISE 1 Pioneer

Farmand in site mainly contains two forms

Urban farm & Agro-foredtry area

PRAISE 2 Succession

Ueban farm is constructed to meet the recreational needs of people, it provides chances for them to experience urban agriculture. Agro-forestry aims to promote ecoligical interaction between woody and non-woody components, it will be managed by more professional persons.

PRAISE 3 Climax

GUIDELINES FOR HILLY LAND REMEDIATION

1. Choose pollution tolerant plants to absorb polluted materials in soil. 2. Choose nitrogen fixing plants as poineers to fertilize the barren earth in hilly land.

Unlike the other areas in the site hilly land remediation confronts the most crucial problem, the polluted oil. Thus pollution tolerant plants should be adopted widely in this area. Since the new soil layer being used to cover steel slag piles is very thin, we should also choose shallow root plants. As a result, shrub and herb acts as dominant botypes. While not too much arbor appears in the srea at the beginning.


SITE LOCATION

BACKGROUND

PROBLEMS

03 SHELTER EFFECTS OF ECOLOGY We choose the venue located at Jinyuan district,Taiyuan,Shanxi province,at the north of China,near the rich coal resources of the Mong Mountains. Far away from the east coast of sea, Taiyuan is located in the inner part of mainland whose northwestern part is the spacious Eurasian continent, resulting in the dry climate with rare rain.


STRATEGIES Placing the shelter of landscape in the large areas diffued from the aeras where sand storm often takes an important role not only desertation prevention but also in improving ecological environment, increasing ecological green and exrending living green.

5 years

The interaction relationship between people and animals aroused coincidently from their activities in the Shelter System. People's relaxation feelings of the beautiful of nature aroused from the feel of trees, sunshine, wind and the relaxation feelings of the nature voice (birds and insects) and smells (flowers) when they are in the Shelter System.

The site is closely related to the history and culture. The ancient city wall embodies the wisdom of the ancient Chinese working people. It is the embodiment of the Ming Dynasty's urban construction, history, military and architectural art. Now, the majestic city wall of Xi'an has become one of the most attractive tourist resort area, but because the old form, lack of function, the limitation is too strong is too monotonous, there are many problems caused the wall tour. First, it lacks a lot of service functions, and then it lacks the connection with the surrounding environment, especially the city wall, and lacks the elements of beauty and design. Is this really a tourist experience that the citizens and tourists want, and it's worth our thinking. In this way, we try to explore a diversified small scale element to update the city wall environment and activate the relationship between the city wall and tourists. It provides a small scale of space for the city wall, as a rest, ornamental, toilet and so on. I hope these elements are as vital as the new cells, giving the old building a vitality and achieving a holistic recovery by changing the part.

CONNECTTING WITH THE LANDSCAPE


05 INTERSHIP WORK Eelevated Pedstrian Interchange The project is located in the intersection of Zhayan Road, Songhu Road and Sanmen Road, Yangpu District, Shanghai. It aims to resolve the traffic jam, improve relationship of the foot walking system and underground traffic arround the site. The elevated pedestrian interchange and the garden under the bridge not only help improve quality of civil lives, but also optimize the urban construction. The garden and the crossing bridge are the keys of this project. Inorder to wraken the negetive effect of the crossing bridge an inhance the urban landscape, we try to use a mount of curve in landwscape design, combine the bridge and garden through continuous greens.
