VISION STATEMENT For the undergraduate capstone project , we are first tasked with choosing a site in New England area and selecting an appropriate land use. My interests revolve around urban waterfront and campus. This project integrates these two main elements with vibrant, inspired and connective placemaking, providing a high-quality waterfront public realm with the emphasis on high school function for nearby neighborhood. The theme color and name of this park: MINT BLUE is inspired by the mimgling of the waterfront (Blue) and public space (Green) elements.

-- An inspiring educational facility for the district and immediate residential neighborhood. --The design creates a vibrant sense of place and demonstrates ecological stewardship with a large intensive green roof for educational use; a rain garden demonstrating the natural filtration process; a rain and stormwater collection system; and wind turbine demonstrating â€˜free energyâ€™. -- The organization of space focuses the interiors to the natural exterior environment, making the facility and surrounding landscape a tangible and dynamic part of the environmental curriculum.

VISION STATEMENT THIS SKETCH PROBLEM IS A FEASIBILITY STUDY ON LAND USE TRYING TO SOLVE COASTAL FLOODING PROBLEMS DUE TO SEA LEVEL RISING, THE HIGH TIDE AND STORM SURGE, AND FOLLOWING WITH COMMUNITY PLANNING. TO ADAPT TO COASTAL HAZARDS DUE TO CLIMATE CHANGE AND COMING SEA LEVEL RISING, A SERIES OF TECHINIQUES ARE CATAGORIZED AND ANALYZED, INCLUDING ENGINEERING INFRASTRUCTURE, GREEN INFRATRUCTURE AND LAND USE MODIFICATION.
THE PROJECT GOAL IS TO MINIMIZE THE DAMAGE OF FLOODING TO IMPACTS ON PUBLIC SECURITY AND MUNICIPLE FACILITIES, WITH LEAST BUDGET AND MOST SUSTAINABILITY.

Vision Statement The program is a memorial park integrated with civic open space for human wellness , waterfront open space and landscape restoration.
Background The 140-acre site is where the 2015 TianJin Explosion happened, whichi was originally a container storage station at the Port of Tianjin.The explosion was initially caused by the overheated container of dry nitrocellulose and involved the detonation of about 800 tonnes of ammonium nitrate. The accident caused 173 deaths and the emission of noxious chemicals to atmosphere and soil. The explosion left a 6-metre-deep and 60-metre-long huge crater.
TianJin has a typical monsoon climate of medium latitudes,with the clearly distinct seasons. Because of the monsoon, the climate in TianJin is hot and rainy summers,cold and dry winters,providing great environment for variety of plants. Taking the wind directions into consideration is to control the emission of polluted gas in the event.

The memorial landscape consists of a sinking ramp starting from the entrance plaza ,and the explosion crater, the most shocking sign the event left. The lights installed into the side wall of ramp memorialized 75 brave sacrificed firemen In the centre of the pit, there is a landscape tower where water flows down to the crater powerfully. The swash indicates time elapsing and lives going by.The feeling of view and flowing sound wakes up the sadness and meditation in touristsâ€™ hearts.

POINT, LINE, PLATE, VOLUME -----’Dancing Ribbon’ This project is tasked to design a 50’scale model for a 200’x600’ Urban Plaza. Also we need to show basic form elements in this design: POINT, LINE,PLATE,VOLUME. and form at least one space.
Lines Form Plate
Line Forms Volume
Knotted Volome From Moving Line(SPACE)
Plants (Wide Line )Form Volume
Points Form Line
Lines Form Plate
LINEAR SPATIAL ORGANIZATION -----’Rainbow River Park’’ This is an 200’x600’urban plaza model, using linear organization to form different types of space,including outdoor performance space, active recreation, intimate seating space and majoring gather space. The design reaches the requirement of 50% space in sun and 50% space in.shade.
Active Recreation Area
General Seating 500+
Intimate Seating Area for 15+ People
Outdoor Performance Space for 300+
