LIVING CONTEMPLATION

Date: July 2019

Italy possesses a large and significant heritage of lighthouses along its territory coastline. Once it used to navigate man home safe and sound throughout long history but with the arrival of new technologies, these structures are gradually in disuse and deteriorated. The Agenzia del Demanio, an Italian public body, which deals with the management and enhancement of the state property, promoted a business development with the main purpose of recovering and giving new functions to the lighthouses that make it possible to preserve such an inestimable heritages. In 2016, The Young Architecture Competition in collaboration with the Agenzia del Demanio launched the “Valore Paese - Fari” project, giving fifty-year concessions to entrepreneurial organizations, to develop projects that strengthen the culture and tourism of the place. The organization took the precious location and beauty of Capo Murro Lighthouse in Porco as a case study, they want to transform it into a new hotel intervention. The lighthouse is named after the Murro di Porco cliff, which stands out for its simplicity and charm, located south of Syracuse on the Maddalena peninsula, near the marine area of Plemmirio. The thesis proposes an innovative, contemporary proposal regarding artist accommodation, a new concept for artistic inspiration and meditation spaces. It does not follow strictly the proposal of the competition but takes the guideline of the “Lighthouse Sea Hotel” contest as an inspiration to develop one of the hypotheses for the old heritage transformation. The users will be musician, dancer, painter, writer .. who want to find a poetic place that far away from the urban chaos, listening to their inner self, finding sobriety, calmness, and creativity. The project will promote the psychological and emotional comfort of them., allowing users to get inspired and develop their ideas Always considered a concrete and ideal point of reference, the lighthouse is not only an important in human history because it’s a navigational facility but it’s a symbol and a guardian of one spectacular land. It has the connection with the human ambiance, its fascinated and mystery beauty is the image of mediation between the land and the sea, recalling a nostalgic feeling of cultural fondness and memory for people. The resulting structure aims to generate a contemplative environment that is harmony with nature, attracting artist to interact with the lighthouse and marvelous panoramic sea view through its intervention of new spatial sequences. Besides, the project aims to become an inspired house that motivating creativity, concentration, contemplation as a set of artist retreat in romantic and dreamlike nuances.

THE SAND DUNE - EXPO 2020 DUBAI

The pavilion is a part of Dubai 2020 exposition. It’s the composition of 2 separated buildings inspired by the shape of the sand dunes in Dubai vast deserts. The two dune forms will house the exhibition, visitor facilities and administration department, souvenir shop, coffee shop. Where the forms separated create a protected valley will offer a breakout space in between for new experience of visitors. The 2400-square-meter project, showcased as a “road to serenity” rather than a normal building, leads visitors on a journey which is reflected from the temporal to the spiritual. The former is represented by exhibition in the southern building, it could be the possibility of photography gallery; cultural, art exhibition. The latter is represented in the northern building respectively by using light as the main exhibition such as led installation, path of life installation, prism room. Guests follow the circulation from the entrance at the southern building to the other one through a bridge on the second floor and get out at the back part of the inner valley. The prism room is the prominent space that we want to focus on because of it’s importance in the position (final function of the spiritual path, also the entire building), so that we want to create such space for visitors can stay, rest and experience the atmosphere as well as the spirit of the exposition. Within the Prism room, the roof alternately casting shadows and spectral light on the surface through skylights overhead with its pattern inspired by Islamic motifs. 2 first spaces illustrate artificial light, we want to manipulate natural light as the main installation for the prism room. We converted natural light from invisible to visible by using prism as a tool to splits or diffracts natural light into the colored spectrum, calling attention to atmospheric elements that might otherwise go unnoticed. Light is made visible by splitting prismatically into its various color. Route guideline: The routine of the exhibition follows the two linear volume, and along this route we create different kinds of exibition with light to provide the vistors a variable experience with both artificial and natural light. When entering the building, the skylight bring the sunshine which is divided as columns into the lobby of the building and the walking through the exhibition hall 1, people will feel the natural shaded by the terracotta bricks which is refering to the tradiational architectural technology of tha arbic area. Passing the bridge, the first room is a matrix of LED installation, presenting the logical aspect of human spirit world after that, in the Life Path area, the LED installations are arranged following a rather free way indicaiting the romantic aspects of the human spirit world. In the end, visitors will enter the room with Prism skylight. In that room the nature light will be desembled into different colors of column which recall and compare with the entrance light columns.

In collaboration with: Xu Wanli Location: Dubai Tasks: Research; Concept, space, plan design; Collage and model making; Energy calculation.

ROAD TO INTEGRATION

The project is located in the historical centre of Lodi (40km to the South East of Milan, Italy), their composition of the inhabitants has been deeply modified since the early 2000s because of the arrival of a huge number of immigrants. The city, attentive to the new needs stated by its community, with other 22 Italian cities (Reggio Emilia, Torino, Bari, Genova Milano, Venezia, Forlì,…) subscribed six years ago an agreement aimed to spread an intercultural dialogue and promote among the citizens the positive value of the cultural multiplicity. The existing construction on the site is an old garage in the cloister complex. Designing a new intervention that meets the requirement of cultural connection, physical spatial connection (the site is spread over a lower topographic level compared to the cloister’s), preservation to the old cloister and historical context is the aim of the project. Lodi is also known as the land of ceramic tradition. In the 15th century of Lodi, ceramic was produced for daily use. One of the famous ceramic artists was Antonino Negri. Gladstone Pottery Factory (photo on the left) showcased the typology and the composition of a typical ceramic factory back in the past of Europe. The inspiration of new intervention was taken from the iconic image of bottle-shape-kiln forest growing spontaneously on gableroof-scape of a ceramic factory in the past of Europe.

There are five kilns stand for five senses of human, showcase the boundary between physical and mental perception. Each kiln creates different senses boosting the quality of ambience in the building, helping the Inter-dialogue process between different culture. Kiln of light has a source of light from above, the space under it can be flexibly arranged. Kiln of touch is characterized by different texture on its surface. Kiln of sound is represented according to the research of the shape of bottle-shape kiln characterizes acoustics ambient effect. Kiln of taste is decorated with a various colorful pattern. There is an interaction between tactile and taste experiences, vision also becomes transferred to taste as well. Certain colors and delicate details evoke oral sensations according to Luis Barragan Houses case study. Kiln of smell is managed to be in the intervention of the garden, plants and flowers act as constant sensors to create the sense of smell for users. We studied one of the natural structured installations of Giuliano Mauri -art installation artist in Lodi and Italy, to become special kiln in the garden.

In collaboration work with: Anh Dang Ngoc, Ye Ning Nan Location: Lodi, Italy Tasks: Research; Concept, space, plan design; Collage and model making.

SOUTH SAI GON LIBRARY

Date: 2015

The construction located in District 7, South of Ho Chi Minh City - key economic development area of South Vietnam which connects important urban cities /provinces: Bình Duong, Ho Chí Minh City, Đong Nai, Bà RiaVung Tàu.. The Library serves the academic community as a modern learning and research centre and offers a meeting place for all citizens. Function subdivision demand and climatic conditions form plan shape idea. Square space welcomes guests to approach in the building because there is only one access road from the residential area to the North. Southern east space along waterfront is managed to be a green area for landscaping, outdoor reading, relaxing with nature and views. Staff’s access area is arranged close to secondary entrance. Project plan’s layout ensures a clear and not overlapping separation of space. In addition, the construction also comforts climatic design principles, that is reduce costs of building western heat by designing appreciate library’s direction and using natural wind flows; ensuring majority north-south direction for library reading room, taking advantage of southern river view.

Mangrove palms (nipa palms) are amongst important and productive of ecosystems and are found along coastal areas and offshore islands. It was not only became specific cultural feature of South Viet Nam but it also had contributed significantly to the socio-economic lives of coastal dwellers in Viet Nam for centuries. Mangrove palms have been traditionally exploited as firewood, food, herbal medicines and many other forest products. Especially It has an important role in building construction; the long, feathery leaves of the nipa palm are used by local populations as roof material for thatched houses or dwellings, the leaves are also used in many types of basketry and thatching. Mangrove palms are project’s inspiration because of their familiarity with South Vietnamese people and also they are majority existing plant on the construction site (Dics 7)

HIGH RISE OFFICE BUILDING

Date: 2014

This high-rise office is located in Central Business District of Ho Chi Minh City which have multiple functions at bottom levels: banking office, exhibition, conference hall, restaurant and coffee; the tower is office for rent with square plan and braced core structured. I design this building with intention that its form has some special features to make a harmony with modern surrounding area. There are six sollutions for office plan per level: 1 office , 2 offices, 3 offices, 4 offices, office with private wc, office with private exit. Movable walls separate spaces so that it could easily transform to each other for suitable working conditions. The possibility of different plan typology was introduced to fit the requirement of flexibility and the need of individual company. The plan varied from 1 office, 2 offices, 3 offices, 4 offices which have the toilet in the central core of vertical circulation, offices with toilet inside working area, offices with emergency exit hall was placed on the top in case there is situation that people need to get out of the building by helicopter.

Main hall is an atrium covered by a huge glazing system, making the most prominent point in project. This is a significant connection to areas of the building and an important place where guests and personnels first approach in. Triangles were fundamental to the design concept, diamond-shaped glass panes in diagrid structure is also two-triangle-shaped. I intend to repeat this concept through parts of high-rise building exterior, from glazing system at main hall, V-column at front part to diagrid system of office part . This makes a modern highrise tower concordant with surrounding ones in site. Individual work Location: District 1, Ho Chi Minh City, Viet Nam

SPORT CENTER

Located at the connection of many districts, this sport center is not only a place to play sport but also a crucial prominent architecture building of the city. Because of big scale of the building, so I decide to manipulate long pan structure to ensure sport hall could stand steadily and free the plan to design large spaces functions for sport activities. Tensile cables were connected to five arch-shaped steel frames to make a certain standable structure.

First floor

Sencond floor

Moreover, big structure columns were also erected at the side of the building which keeping the roof against wind power. This project brought me lessons about expression architectural style and how to control large scale architectural details.. Expression architecture was intended to apply to building design with ray-shaped perspective view, showing the sense of strength and energetic of a sport facility.
