RURAL REGENERATION The rural regeneration project in Master course. Berzasca is a small ordinary village located along the bank of the river Danube in Banat, Romania, where surrounded by beautiful nature. After a week field trip, we made a master plan in a group and then chose one site to make proposals individually.
Projects III main market placeand workshop space of proceed goods
The site I chose is along National road, the edge of the village, which is generally in poor condition with abandoned buildings, shabby huts, agricultural land and communist blocks. This area is obviously isolated within the village. The main concept is to make a connection between the village and this area and then make a circulation to the Danube; by creating a new landscape over the site, and by inserting a linear lined new route and provide intersecting 4 points along this new route.
Projects IV facilities for a wharf and connection
to the Danube
Market Place This site will be the most important point of whole project; it is expected to be an interaction point of different activities; or locals and tourists. The flexible circulation connects the agricultural land, the new rout and National road. Then these various circulation will be a market space.
Project II extension and improvement of the small park and prayground Project I bus stop, cafe and small market Market Place The market place will include processing rooms, restaurant and cafe, office and stock space. The rest of space is for a market to sell the local products or other uses such as local party.

In our generation, new communication tools, represented by ‘facebook’ and ‘twitter’ , have been fairly developed,
They, I named ‘nomadic people’ , do not have a permanent house but often move to one after another, carrying just their belingings packed in a bag. Most of them stay in small plots divided by partition walls in like an Internet Cafe,
The project began with an interest in `Sea gypsy'. Their tidy homes are filled with stuffs and they keep a tiny space to sleep within it.
During the process transferring the idea from the research into a design project, I realised that there are nomadic people in tokyo, who overlap with ‘sea gypsy’ .
‘What is home?’ ‘What is the most important element to dwell?’
Optimistic hope of face-to-face direct communication has no longer reality... For example, tons of statements have been uploading on Facebook everyday but it does not matter who they are telling to... first image a sleeping space + personal belongings = ‘home’
We express our happy news, sad news, discoveries, or feelings whatever and whenever we want to and then someone would catch our one-way statements and may respond to it.

KANDA YUMELAB ‘KANDA’ is one of the old neighbourhoods in Tokyo. The area used to prosper as a working-class neighbourhood, however it has been loosing its traditional features, Transformation into a business area following a decline of number of residents made a fragile community instead of the strong sense of community that they have kept from the past.
