CONTENTS Office RESEARCH CENTER Dynamic Laboratory Residential DESAFINADO From Acoustic to Tectonic Landscape CYCLING PARK "Central Park" in Montpellier Reconstruction COLLECTIVE UNITS Renewal Project for Huli Community Thesis OPPELA An Underground Theme Park in Aleppo


This project introduced free plan, prefabrication, and sustainable methodologies. We proposed three systems in the project: roof system, module system and permanent constr uctions. The enclosure includes roof system and cur tain wall. it creates a flexible interior environment for people that can be totally closed in winter, and open

CENTER OF EXCELLENCE RESEARCH CENTER to outdoor during summer. The roof can tilt to different degrees and orientations to track the sunlight. The prefabricated module can be plugged into the 50' * 50' grid plan. Permanent constructions include librar y, cafe and auditorium which we called follies in this flexible environment.

Taking the musical notes to tectonic. The idea is to generate a continuous and composed rhythm by scalling repetitive patterns, and eventually, to convert the rhythm to real space that can be actually used.

DESAFINADO From Acoustic to Tectonic By making six three-dimensional composition models, we learned different approaches to overlap and organize simple elements and consider how these varies rhythm can be interpreted to architecture. In this project, even the most complicated structure can be disassembled to a few basic units and vice versa.

Columns are considered as connections to ground and the units are installed as modules which are different in dimension. Not only saving the construction period, but also convenient to assemble. Beans, plates and walls are placed layer by layer to fit spatial ductility.

Structure & Programs & Plan


This project is a small scale urban planning in Montpelier, France. Designers were asked to select a type of sport and to plan the area for people. Montpellier is in the route of Tour de France. Considering the city fabrication, condition and combined the sustainable idea as well, I proposed a bicycle park for bikers and citizens.

CYCLING PARK Depending on the programs of the surrounding area: residential buildings, university, commercial streets. This project works as "central park" in Montpellier so that citizens can join the green space to spend their leisure time, relax their body, and promote the outdoor activities.

No matter in center city or surburban area, residential community is an indispensable part for the pulic, which connects residents together. As development of cities and towns, residents have been moving outside seeking new modern community,

COLLECTIVE UNITS Renewal Project for Huli Community leading to community aging and other environmental and cultural problems. This project combines traditional staircase and the quadrangle dwelling, especially by creating interleaved ver tical transpor tation space, activating life path and neighborhood relationship.

THESIS: OPPELA An Underground Park in Aleppo


Instructor: Yutaka Sho Site: Aleppo, Syria

This thesis aims to prevent Syrian refugees from becoming a threat and a burden for European countries via architectural means. In emergency situations, architecture tends to act only after the conflict by providing temporary aid, such as refugee camps. This kind of emergency remedy measure displaces a large amount of refugees to countries all over the world. Refugees may be discriminated and treated as second class citizens in the host countries. They may be restricted in small areas like prisoners rather than citizens with equal rights. The thesis calls attention to this problem and attempts to affect the countries that refuse to participate in betterment of refugees’ livelihood. Aleppo, the most populous city in Syria, acts as a testing site- for a proposed hyper-real and cynical project in the form of Underground Theme Park. I presume that Syrian people will remain within the country throughout the war and be imprisoned underground instead of imprisoned in refugee camps away from their homeland.

This project takes advantage of the war to create a new society for Syrian refugees who must flee domestic and multinational forces fighting over their land. People will enter the new subterranean world through the heritage sites they are familiar with, and if they wish, they can visit their original city safely by going up the watch towers. Oppela will be structured according to a re-organize city network. It will be separated into three layers which I call Uptown, Mid-town and Downtown, literally and allegorically. Uptown is the existing heritage sites of Aleppo that have become a space of nostalgia, history, and now "Open sesame" to the subterranean world. Midtown which connects with original city is the layer for living, producing and celebrating. A grid structure filled with storage, living and production modules gives refugees access to and celebrate sunlight, wind, rain and fresh air. The Downtown level is where the entertainment industry is located.
