The main focus of the project is to design the new headquarters of the Academy of Fine Arts of Brera in Milan, conceived as a campus for teaching, research, production and exhibition of art. A masterplan examines and assesses notions of scale, mass and density. At the architectural scale, we are encouraged to investigate possibilities through detailed planning, composition and tectonic qualities. The project is in an old military area of the city, with its neighbourhoods constructed mainly in stones. I create a new triangular shaped square in front of the old command building and a new multi-functional building in the middle of the site. The sloping lawn is accessible for the public to relax or go up to the theatre lobby. This building contains common functions such as library, cafe, restaurant, theatre foyer, and roof garden. The ramp connecting the triangular square arrives at the theatre foyer on the first floor and a pedestrian bridge links with the department building. Department Building has three departments with four upper levels for the faculty. It includes a flexible theatre for students and public. Behind facades of glass bricks, are the classrooms and studios. A long straight corridor is designed to connect the whole building on the ground level.

ings Square Competition, Fremantle
Kings Square has been the civic and geographical heart of Fremantle since the Town Hall was built in the 1880s. In recent years its prominence as the centre of Fremantleâ€™s CBD has been in decline. The Kings Square Urban Design Strategy was undertaken to assess the function and form of the square and surrounding area and to formulate a strategy that would reinvigorate its standing as Fremantleâ€™s true city centre. Kings Square is a space that is already well used by the community as a market place and space for public events, recreation and council business. The Urban Design Strategy recognises the square as the civic centre and a key commercial hub of a revitalised Fremantle. Kings Square responds to and connects with all that Fremantle has to offer.

The purpose of the Kings Square architectural design competition is to select a design concept approach and design team to develop core facilities for the City of Fremantle in Kings Square. The required facilities are identified in the Kings Square Project Business Plan. They will comprise a public library, civic chamber, administrative and surplus office space, council services, urban room, visitor centre, cafĂŠ and specialty retail, together with the entire public realm of High Street within Kings Square.
Consequently the City of Fremantle and Sirona Capital Management have agreed to proceed with the Kings Square Project which is an integrated redevelopment or refurbishment of a number of key sites in the Kings Square precinct currently owned by the City, and the former Myer building owned by Sirona. The project aims to achieve the primary objectives of: 1. A civic, retail, commercial and community hub reflecting its unique place as the centre of Fremantle and creating a vibrant, active and safe place for citizens and visitors and, 2. A leading edge development demonstrating confidence in Fremantle as a place to invest.

emporary Housing for Homeless Elderly, Hong Kong
6 7 8 13
This proposal relates to the homeless people that used to live under the elevated highway. The Hong Kong government has created mechanisms to prevent homeless people occupying the space under the elevated highway. The idea of this proposal is to empower homeless people with some dignity. This proposal relates to a possible building nearby to accommdate these people. Understanding that inside this group they have different needs, a building that have multiple levels of occupation through time - 1 month, 6 months, 5 years. A beautiful protective enclosure is proposed in a seamless oval shaped building. At the same time, it is protective but open to the city. The interior courtyard is designed as a strong affirmative space.

Age The average age of the total sample population was 54.9 years, which the youngest being 21 years old, and the oldest being 90 years old. Age groups 51-60 and 61 and above was each composed of about 1/3 of the respondents sample, which means about 2/3 of the respondents were 51 years old or above. The latest projections by the Census and Statistics Department show that our population will continue to grow in the next 20-30 years, but only at a decelerating pace, from 7.2 million today to 8.5 million in 2041. There will be a startling shift in composition: in less than 30 yearsâ€™ time, the number of elders aged 65 and above would surge from the current 1.0 million to 2.6 million in 2041. The median age would also climb to 52 by then, versus 43 today. By 2041, around one in three persons will be elders, up from the current level of one in seven. One in eight persons will be the older-old, i.e. aged 80 and above.
Two predominant factors of aged homelessness: 1) a lack of affordable housing appropriate to the needs of elderly people 2) a lack of sufficient income to maintain an adequate standard of living Before being homeless: 1)Go to the service centre to apply Welfare Benefits - Comprehensive Social Security Assistance (CSSA) and Publich Housing 2)Prepare for a long term for this complicated application process Transition period: It depends on your circumstances and varies from person to person. Some of the important factors: - where you were living before - your reasons for being homeless - your social and medical circumstances - if you have relatives or friends which can give you support Social support: 1)Contact with social service agencies 2)Contact with family and friends

Homeless older people could take it out at night and take it back in the morning, which gives the possibilities of a â€˜changingâ€™ building through the day. The empty frame made of bamboo would be another large shelter for homeless elderly to sleep at night.

esearch Proposal, Kalgoorlie
A CIVIC PLACE THAT AVAILABILITY OF ALCOHOL
This studio focused on exploring our own interests ending up with a speculative design proposal through research. This design proposal might not necessarily be a building or Architecture as understood in the 20th century. Students are expected to develop independent thinking and design skills simultaneously. The site is around the city of Kalgoorlie, which is an isolated mining community with a population of 28,000, situated approximately 600km east of Perth. Early in the last century it had over 90 hotels and eight breweries serving a predominantly male population, there to work in the newly established gold mines.

The structure is composed of series of wooden-structured grids, both in terms of the roof and the walls. Along with change of light which filters into the space, the grid also alters its essence: sometimes the patterns of grid transforms into a solid translucent plane, whereas sometimes, it transforms into a transparent plane. Wood is the main material that could integrate into the surrounding environment of Kalgoorlie. The wooden screens emphasizes the magical ambience of blurred boundaries between inside and outside.

The structure will become a civic place for active inhabitation. There are various recreational facilities happening on the structure, including a skate park, basketball courts, lounge, toilets and change rooms, a series of climbing walls, reading area, shops, eating area, and gardening area.
The structure form landmark spatial events, orienting us to our place in the Kalgoorlie city as we move below it, and provide glimpses of human movement and urban activity above, to reduce the possibility of drinking alcohol. It is developed as a distinct public recreation venue divided by different groups of people.
nergy System in the Adaptive Reuse of the No.2 Substation, Perth
The studio involves ideas of Energy and the Generative in the adaptive re-use of the No. 2 Substation, 333 Murray St, Perth. The program will parallel a current feasibility study by TPG being prepared for the State Heritage Office. As a studio we are interested in energy systems and energy flow; this is from the understanding of a circular economy as well as from understanding systems and energy generation for medium scale and tower projects for now and the future. The systems I choose are: Nano Wind Oscillating system, Centre Metz Pompidou facade system, double skin system, oil facade system. Solar thermal to create chilled water from heat - solar collectors (facade) have parabolic concentrators that focus the solar radiation into one place. From this oil is heated. Passing through the absorption chiller could create chiller water for cooling, essentially a non-electric way of making chilled water. We insert an oil storage tank and a heat exchanger to heat water that feeds into the absorption chiller/heating coil.

There is a contrast between dark and light within interfaces inside the building. And different lighting systems where in extreme cases a psychological or physiological effect maybe experenced. This project is to explore a good light quality for each space and make a beautiful and useful courtyard connecting the two wings, encouraging people to come into the building.
omplex Building Design, Hampden Road
The site for the project is at the corner of Gordon Street and Hampden Road, Nedlands. It is a suburb situated just 7km from Perth. Nedlands is a mixed-character suburb, which contains low-cost housing for students at the neig bouring University of Western Australia; wealthy homes; commercial areas, restaurants and cafes. This site is a tapering site with an area of 582m2. It is in one of Perthâ€™s older suburban centres and proximal to a great mix of land-use types, notably the university, hospitals and a variety of retail and commercial uses. The project for this site is a two-storey mixed-used building on the corner of Gordon Street and Hampden Road in Nedlands. The building is to contain a variety of uses intended to capitalise on the growing demand in inner city Perth centres for urban mixed land-use. The programme of the building consists of a public space in the form of a cafe,retail, or gallery, a minimum of 6 bays, an office and two residential apartments. Approximately 3 million dollars budget including all enclosed and unenclosed space, landscaping etc. would be provided.
