Liangzhu Ancient City 120°E
Liangzhu Ancient City, known as “China’s First City”, was the first Neolithic Age site discovered in the downstream area of the Yangtze River. The ancient city had the shape of a rounded rectangle, covering an area of 2.9 million square meters. The water system in the periphery has been known as the earliest large-scale water conservancy project in China and the earliest dam in the world.

Location of Project
As the largest ancient city in China, Liangzhu City consists of the palace-style architecture, high-class tomb inside and sacrificial altar, handicrafts workshops and wharf facilities outside. The city is clearly divided into sub-areas by hierarchy and function, with ordinary citizens lived on the periphery of the city and the nobles lived on Mojiaoshan at the center of the city.
Excavation Sites as Educational Tool The excavation sites continue to use the grid design. The original excavation pits are for the research of cultural relics and teaching history while the new pits are for student activities. Some parts of sites still remain to be excavated. The site is not only open to teachers and students, but also studied and visited by archaeologists and visitors. Three buildings in the site are designed for teaching, exhibition, excavating practice, research, etc.
Surrounding Landscape as Interactive Media Inspired by the traditional city walls in Liangzhu relics, the campus landscape represents a memoir of culture. The relics of original city walls are designed into the shape of a ring and the surrounding landscape was reinvented with plants, a waterfall, and a scattered platform, increasing the richness and fun of the site. Touch screen and cultural symbols are added onto the relics of city walls to stimulate studentsâ€™ interest in learning history. In the evening, the ground lights and spotlights around the walls and the excavation pits together with landscape lighting make the school a place to gather.

Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs)
Adding apartments to existing, older housing stock is a small-scale residential infill strategy which could address the housing problems in Mission District. In this case, ADUs can play an important role in housing supply. An ADU is a new dwelling unit added entirely within an existing building or an existing authorized auxiliary structure in areas where residential use is allowed. ADUs can provide flexibility for families over generations and provide a more affordable housing option for some households.

Area: 145 acres
Wuliuxiang Historic District The old structure of brick and wood has been derelict, outdated facilities and undesirable environment has resulted in the low quality of life for residents. Meanwhile, due to the construction of the railway station nearby, new businesses have developed and prospered outside the historic district, contributing to the significant conflict.
Qinghefang Historic District As the first district that got successful regeneration and improvement, it retains its culture heritage and functions.
Xixing Historic District 18
The districtâ€™s regeneration and preservation has been neglected by the government. The contrast between this district and the modern city has been aggravated due to the development of high-tech industry in the surrounding area.
Guideline In terms of architectural design, both the original configuration of courtyard and modern architectural style have been applied to the design of the new district to mediate the contrast of two distinct urban fabric.
As for functions of the designed block, population accommodation has been increased and sufficient space has been provided for culture. Moreover, green space has been increased, providing the district with an ecological function.

Case Study: Will High-tech Companies Benefit the Tenderloin ?
September, 2017~December, 2017 INTRODUCTION
Historically, the Tenderloin has been the cityâ€™s most diverse and poorest neighborhood located
tion to the employment growth in the Tenderloin. This indicates that the average income of employees in the neighborhood has increased as well as purchasing power among workers in the Tenderloin.
high-tech companies have moved to the Tenderloin since 2011. Accompanied by the concern that
