ACADEMIC S T U D I O S Where the story begins


01 -STUDIO FIRE-

2017 Bachelor Thesis

‘FOCUS & CURIOSITY‘ Hiigh School Design

“Studio Fire” is the final thesis studio of my bachelor degree. The design brief is to design new facilities for University High School, which is located on the edge of CBD area between health and educational center and residential houses. Through the research of education pedagogy, I came up with a big question for my design, which is “How can the built environment both help student to focus on their own study, and at the same time stimulate their curiosity?”. Based on this question, I am inspired by the idea of “theme park design”. Instead of creating one building package with all the functions, I tried to allocate the functions into different package and combine them with green spaces and interesting circulation.

Conceptual Plan

Conceptual Sketch of idea and plan The conceptual sketch was inspired by the “theme park�, which is a place that allows participants focus on what they are playing and at the same time curious about other activities happens around them. The pedagogy is to create an educational environment combining both formal study and informal study, celebrating knowledge and be curious about the world.

Touch & Taste unit includes cafeteria, art gallery and art workshop.

Exercise unit includes office, changing room, gym and netball court.

The round form of the cafeteria provide broad view for dinning. The art worshop creates a form of factory for student practicing art inside.

The form gym provides a broad view towards the green playground. The roof of the netball court casts more natural light into the courts.

The form of the new design create an echo of the existing builidng and form a green courtyard between.

02 -AAVS MelbourneVisiting School Project

‘LANEWAY ISOPTERA’ INTERIOR URBANISM

This project is an exploration in a design method which uses several techniques, tools and materials forming the design and spatial outcome. Through this project a design process starting from physical modeling and with a focus on “materiality” was explored. These materials tested in the project can be categorized in Three groups of solid, transparent and temporary materials that in this case are plaster, Epoxy casting resin, polystyrene and acetone. The materials and the way they interacted leaded to a unique form, texture and technique. This project is proposing a new laneway which is providing a context for public, in a location that has a high potential for being occupied by a variety of programs and events. This design is providing a quality space with potential programs, open to public access and is letting them decide when and how to occupy it in different occasions.

SITE & SCENE QUEEN VICTORIA MARKET, MELBOURNE This project is a proposal for several spaces within the Queen Victoria Market, as a part of the collective proposal for this area. The Market will experience restoration, renewal and upgrades in infrastructure, while reserving the heritage listed elements of it. (2017 City of Melbourne) exploring the existing conditions and the way people engage with it, leaded to our proposal of a new lane-way for the very particular site.

Project site Scale: 1:1000 Source: Nearmap.com.au

The special scene which we explored further was the intersection of market area, carpark area and the main entrance axis. This particular space was simply defined with a boundary created by the elevated tree boxes and back to back benches for public use.

This space provided a highly demanded facility within the area for public use.Several groups of people occupied the space for different amounts of time and this was changing in different times periods. As shown in diagrams on the left, the number of occupants in the space was increasing as the time was closer to lunch time. Diagrams also showed us how the circulation routes were changing from going towards market from the car park and main entrance, to a different routes leading to the facilities such as these benches. The idea of the “remedy space� started to shape at this point which proposed a space for public to remedy.

FABRICATION & 3D SCANNING In this project, I explored a very unique form-finding process with plater, foam and acetone. I started from a chemical reaction. The research process of trying to control the parameters of generating the form is more like a scientific experiment. I tried to control the form, however, it is not completely controllable, which gives me more surprising results and unpredictable forms. 3D scanning is a great tool to capture the physical form and translated into digital model. 3D scanning and point cloud has challenged the traditional idea of mass and voids. Although 3D scanner can only scan the surface of physical objects, the interior can be showed by point cloud. The boundary between mass and voids are showed by the points, but mass are no longer exist.


03 -STUDIO AIR-

Parametric Design

‘Metamorphase’ INTERIOR URBANISM

Studio air is my first studio in Melbourne University, which fully embrace the technology and digital design process. By practicing with online tutorial, I have explored the techniques of digitalization and I am able to design with the techniques and moreover, I have developed a deeper understanding of computational technique in architecture. What is the meaning of digital design and computational technology? And how I should use it in my future career? Those are the issues that questioned me through the whole studio. I believe digital design for architects is not about forming crazy forms and complex geometries. However, it is tool to help you develop your idea based on certain logic of architetcure.


BRIEF A habitation for both human and one other species CLIENT

SCENARIO

The species I picked is the Little Egret from Merri Creek.

Human and animals can have a equal conversation because we are different in height and size. Animal naturally scared of other that are big and look threatening to them. As a result, in my opinion, children might have better conversation with egret than we do. A adult egret has the same height with a 3-4 year old children. Maybe between kids and egret, there will be special conversation.

They often build their nest on the trees near or in the rivers and creeks, which I found quite interesting to develop.

For my project, I want to create a place to inhabitat both children and egret to have them interact with each other. I am wondering what that conversation might be.

SITE The site of this program is located on the Merri Creek in Melbourne City. It a natural park reserved in the urban environment.


DESIGN LOGIC DEVELOPMENT

Create points represent at human habitation

Human circulation cnnected human habitation

Create human habitaiton volume metaball contour

Mesh the surface out of the contour lines and create a united mesh form

Create branches represent egret habitation

Allocate all the branches to connect with human habitation

Create human habitaiton volume with metaball contour


Spin charge xy plane direction

Carry on from the mesh surface

Spin charge xz plane direction

Mesh the curve to create new iteraiton Refine curve

BEST ITERATION SELECTON The standard of selecting best iteration is based on the aesthetics, overall form, constructability and design intent. The current form has fluent curve, appropriate density of veins and balanced structure with potential of functional design.

Spin charge yz plane direction

The iterations are generated through manipulating the value of metaball and the direction of spinning force. It is interested to see that after adding new scripts and changing parameters, the form is redeveloped and evolved into a next level, which I was not expected. It is a good experience of generating forms without depicturing the final result.


egrets habitation

FUNCTIONAL DIAGRAM volumes inside is for human activities


The nest built by egret will reflect on the structure and become part of the structure.

EXPERIENCE The final design proposal is developed from the iterations with the swelling at the bottom and forking on the top. In order to create more interaction between human and egret, the structure is designed as a bone and skin system with smooth transition from swelling to forking. The boundaries between human and egret habitation are blurred after redevelop the mesh surface to reach the consistency and unity of structure. Human habitation inside the swellings. Through the gaps between skeleton frame, people can observe egret’s live without interrupt.
