HOT AIR

Fire Station No.1 This project focuses on the public perception of fire stations and firefighters. How the nuance between the propagandistic public image and the every-day reality is displayed. Putting out fire and saving people is typically understood as heroic; but after peeping into the real fire station, there is an emerging trace of difference between outside and inside. By adding interactive and changing elements, the fire station provoked citizens’ attentions and tried to change the cognition of their public role. Public images are dazzling and baffling. Inspired by google image search, the surface of the building is covered with a mix of images that represent what we easily perceive through public media, histories, mythologies, movies, posters, newspaper,

Instructor : Brittany Utting

toys, cartoons, etc. However, citizens can intervene with these public images as an interactive “exhibition”. With the assistance

Time : 2017 Sep. - Dec. [Institution studio]

of projection techniques, citizen’s movement, people’s ideas are exhibited to the city. Media changing together with people’s movement behind the glass, the building challenges and threatens the existing image of the fire department.

Beyond the blurred skin is a solid and busy object supported by two towers, a hose tower centralizing the fire-fighting function, and one media archive tower surrounded by public service space. Due to the transparency of the façade, people are invited to look into or walk through the fire station, to actually learn and participate with the fire department, while also experiencing the tension between space and the ambiguity between layers. Activities and motions are brought into the void space between openness and solid object.

Section B-B Through walking and exploring in the building, both firefighters and citizens become part of the elevation. With the city’s voices and motions, fire station no.1 is turned into an origin point where we to think and to question the public images of its gesture as a societal icon.

Fishing Area Harbour

During the past 30 years, Chinese rural areas construction and development get much less attention compared to the urban one. With the fast pace of the urbanism, young people who are in their 20-30s, flooded in the large city and embrace the moderninternational life, while the elder people are left behind. On the other hand, more new parents left their children in the village and supported the family by seeking jobs in city. As the main part of working leaving the countryside, the population structure shows an

inner decaying pattern.

Local Opera Stage

The Village Liruo, located in the city Wenlin, is one of the inner-decaying villages, which used to be one of the large village of fishery. But during the recent decade, with generations’ excess fishing, the inshore of China East Sea is no longer the ideal place for fishery, which resulted the inner-decaying problems.

Kindergardern Stair Entrance

This project is based on the social problem that the inner-decaying village need to be renovated, focusing on the kids and the elders, trying to create a social care space and a place they can interact with each other.

EXISTING COMMUNITY NETWORK IN LIRUO The project lovated in Liruo, Wenling. The area to be re-designed are part of the traditional residences in China, which is famous for the stone dwelling. The whole village was built hundreds years ago and planed based on the contour of Mountain Ruo. Like other villages in Europe, Liruo has a great view of ocean and also the irregular buildings arrangement. In according to figure out how the social network works in this scattered village, I interviewed several villagers, including different age groups. And based on the interview, conclude a certain social pattern of this village, mainly foucsing on their daily life shcedule and the lap between different group. As shown in the right, part of their social “track” are lapped with each other, while the other part are lacking of interaction or empty in this village. This pre-design survey give designer a key to solve the problem and help decide in which way should the community centre regenerate the village.

FORM GENERATION - MOTION LOOP First, due to illegal consturction, the roof has already unstable and disarry, for the cosistence of the building, and also to have more sunlight in, I change the whole roof into glazings. Then fill the gaps and complete the plan's shape. This combined with the glazing roof, lead to a shift between indoor and outdoor.

Connect differnt heights

Insert the blocks

The loop of activities

Next is to work on the extended part in the gaps, to provide more fun for kids, I make a height difference and connect it with the stairs and elevators. After insert the actual functional block, the whole system is linked by this loop of motion, where the layer of indoor-semioutdooroutdoor are very clear. People could stay indoor for quiet and specifc activities, while others could run and chill in the rest of the building where enjoy the sunlight

YOUTH AND ELDER CENTRE | SCENARIOS | GROUND FLOOR The youthe and elders centre is a reusing design based on three old stone structure housing.The centre uses the three devided space to create three spaces of different silence level, in the middle is the most dynamic one, consisting of a public kitch and a indoor play room. The extended part is

designed to provide more interesting and safe spaces for kids to run and the elders to walk, which is both safe and disabled friendly. While the elders siting in the middle of the stone housing, the kids can run freely and fill the centre with laughters.

GENERATION AND AXONOMETRIC EXPLOSION


Caring Connection

As the design developed, the site with a perfect view of the east sea has a great protential to provide the best viewing point of the historical village. So instead of enclose the whole elevation of the extension, I free the north elevation and design as a place with resting panel and leaning door hole, give kids more interests to run through this area. The kitchen's window also facing this very dynamic part to bring joy into the area where the grownups use more often. The library part is another great interior space for the community to stay. To enrich the spacial diversity, I design block insert in the original stone housing, using double layer of stairs to provide more place for kids to play and run; while the ground floor can have a quiet palce to reading.

Long Jing Resort Hotel With the continuous development of urbanization in modern society, more and more natural land, mountain land or agricultural land is occupied, becoming the victim of human desires. The design, I through field research, a wide range of base analysis, etc., to determine the overall design ideas. The program reduces the damage to the natural environment and farmland through a meandering general design, minimizing the size of the building At the architectural design level, I conducted a study of Chinese gardens, Chinese traditional villages and other forms of space. Through the study of Chinese ancients for nature, urban, seclusion and other aspects of the concept, to carry out architectural space design, to meet the needs of modern urban residents in the city that want to escape the busy city life, seeking natural aspirations.

Where human meet animals By clearly programming the building, the design try to specify the user gourps and their activities. By connecting each other to find the overlaps therefor help develope the public space. The 4 groups altogether form a common area that allow people communicate and expirience the joy with animals. Using giant stone walls to devide the site, creat 4 ground for 4 gourp of users. With the curves that connected to the mountain, 4 user groups can meet and communitcate on the top of the building easily. The building's form is based on the moutain and the users' behavirors time-line. As the design develope, the users need to connected to each other. Therefore, right in the crossing of 4 users'line, there is a communicating points, which connected with corridors and circulations. It is the nexus of the 4 different lines, the main entrance of the building, and the entrance to the roof.

The space is generated because the covered of each surfaces. We believed that a space of large-span can be clear and light, rather than covered by heavy roof with thick beams. In the study of the newest structure system, beam string structure, we try to explore the architectural design from the structure itself. We try to explore a way to use the string, rather than beams, combined with the independent poles to carry the most part of the load. In that way, we re-create the structure form and find an exclusive rhyme of the structure. We drafted more than ten small scale models to find the right modules of the poles and the strings. As a final result, we built a large scale of 1 : 20, to show the light structure and the patterns. In this course of explore structural system, we consult not only the professor of design studio, but also who have rich experience of the string-beam system.

Hyper Real / Ultra Fake Representational works | Scene Rendering Instructor: Daniel Jacobs Semester: 2018 Winter [Respresentation - section 001] Individual Works Type: Rendering | V-RAY + Photoshops

Photography can capture subtle details that contain feelings, expose truth, to Stimulate the senses, and to create nostalgia. Digital image, different from photography that based on pure reality, is treated as an artificial object to create space that is not completely real, but also can be tied to reality through daily details. The first group of works starts from two composition that could not be possible in real architecture, both have extremely saturated colors. Even with uncanny colors and compositions, the images still gain a sense of reliably through authentic images details, drain, tiles, glowing lights and their reflections. The final composition focuses on the indigenous objects more, rather than the uncanniness of the object itself. By framing strong and extremely proportional images, the generic convenient store has a way to be appreciated by its ordinariness. Details, or punctums, like the small chimney, the reflection of the stop signs, the slightly imperfection of the intersection, the shadow casted on the wall‌‌ Together, those small things exaggerate the authenticity and the uncanniness of the fake, artificial, and virtual space.


BETWEEN FRAMES Representational works | Elevation Re-composition Besed on Neo-Pomo Art Instructor: Hans Tursack Semester: 2018 Winter [Respresentation - section 002] Group Works with Ray Chen Type: Basswood + Acrylic + MDF + Photoshop Rendering

As architecture rethinks the distinctions between structure and ornament, function and decor, form and facade, the surface no longer has the status of decorative element but becomes an entity in itself. In contemporary times, surface turns into actual architecture. In construction, it exerts great seduction as a material site of inventive fabrication. - When worked on as an essential texture of visual fabrication, the surface is treated as a pliable fabric of communication In our section students will work in pairs to render and then construct a 14� x 14� elevation model mounted to the wall. The operative terms in this assignment are largely formal/structural: surface, graphics, abstraction, color, pattern, literal and implied depth, shallow space, texture, layers, moire effects, composition, shape, overlay, complexity, and movement.

LOOK UP will consider architecture’s relationship to contemporary image culture through exercises that seek to undermine the picture plane and question habits of seeing. In the tradition of bas reliefs, trompe l’oeil, and supergraphics, this section will operate in the zone between 2D and 3D with the Reflected Ceiling Plan as the site of speculation. Moving between digital imaging and physical model-making, students will use post-production techniques and content from various platforms to create RCPs that sponsor a blend of visual effects. This project sampled image from the music video of Grimes - Venus Fly, and the historic ceiling of San Francisco Palace of Fine Art. Trying to using elements of drop ceiling to frame the geometry of the historic ceiling.

After the studying of Architecture, sketching turned into my habbits, no matter it is right in front the York Minister or by a muddy road of Chinese village, I could stop by one ten or twenty minutes to finish a quick sketches, sometimes the plans and the elevations.
