Hawaiian Breeze A winning competition project for a couple of restaurant owners who are planning to add an addition on the existing Hawaiian cuisine restaurant to also serve a Japanese style cuisine with sushi bar. The clients want to keep the traditoinal feel and incorporate modern desgin into the new restaurant addition. By choosing to use white slate natural stone and aluminun metal panels to achieve the nature + man-made combination of the “old and new.� Also to reflect the same idea on finishes by install hardwood bamboo floor and recycling wood furniture as seatings.

The cutter that we salute


the Path, the Journey, the Way, Bring Us the Tradition and the Awakeness. This is one of my 1st-year project in grad-school: Japanese Tea House. It is based on the concept of Le Corbusier’s five points theory the 9-square grid system and traditional tatmi module to create architecture composition of the spaces. The design accommodates the ritual of the Japanese tea ceremony which including the traditional Tea House architecture layout andthe tea ceremony procedures: staring with a long walk of the sacred path, experiencing the journey of the path, and ends within the garden that served as a way to awaken consciousness and to realize the insight humility of our relationship with nature that `surrounds us, live within us and humans are afterall part of the nature.

Diversity as the Future Cubical

Speer is the neighborhood containing multifamily and single family residential uses with the majority of commercial and office buildings. Located to the West is Denver’s most premier shopping and dining neighborhood, Cherry Creek; to the North is Capitol Hill neighborhood, which is a highly dense neighborhood dominated by mid and high-rise multi-family uses, and to its South, one of the finest parks and oldest neighborhoods, Wash Park in Denver. Speer neighborhood’s character is defined by its surroundings and definitely makes it a more diverse metropolitan area. Diversity became the combining strategy while developing this area. By introducing retail and restaurant spaces into the original commercial and office buildings at this time and redevelop the uses of spaces throughout a 50-year period of time. The neighborhood will gradually updat their demands to their needs by adjusting the functionality of the buiding and the community‘s program. Future Cubical | 2005

To the first lost: the Alexander Hamilton, Coast Guard Cutter WPG-34

The story The Hamilton was first launched in January 1937 and sunk after an attack by a German U-boat in January 1942 near Reykjavík. The Hamilton was the U.S. Coast Guard’s first loss during WWII. On August 19, 2009, the Icelandic Coast Guard discovered a shipwreck believed to be the Hamilton. This U.S. Coast Guard Museum will contain the history of the Hamilton and also general history and story of the ship and the life of the brave men that fought and died during the attack. The museum will also serve as a place to restore and moor the Coast Guard Cutter Alexander Hamilton. US Coast Guard Museum | 2005


The Program and the Concept Located at Brooklyn navy yard, New York City, the NYC’s redevelopment authorities have commissioned a museum to house coast guard and navy yard artifacts with the focus on the restoration of USCG Cutter-Hamilton. It is to be a living museum that is to be a active and working facility. The restoration of the ship is to take center stage and the coast guard and navy will combine their cumulative and celebrated histories into a single venue.

Digital Fabrication and Design Furniture Making: Giddy Up, Giddy Go Grasshopper Paper Folding


CNC Furniture Making Concept The Giddy up giddy go rocking chair is the result of a study on folding furniture. This idea was driven from origami study, which is interpreted simply as “folding + geometry.” This basic idea then leads to the “static vs. dynamic” concepts in furniture making. Origami: What is the minimum folding: 1 fold. Then what can I do with 1 fold?! Furniture: folding + dis-assemble lesser pieces?!

Rhino Rendering

Giddy up giddy go Ideas

folding umbrella

folding chair: 3 hinges -> 1 hinge

folding rocking stool one chair rib -> mirror ribs -> stool -> rocking stool

digital fabrication & design UW | 2012


Material

Birch plywood for the rocking stool, leather for the seating and cardboard for packaging.

Digital System The initial idea was sketched and used Rhino with Grasshopper plugin to figure out the folding, seating angles, and different scales for children. Then using RhinoCam for CNC layout routing and Rhino for laser cutting package fabrication.

Fabrication System

The rocking stool part was routed out by CNC. The seating part was cut out and stitched by hand. The packaging part was made by laser cutter.

Dis+Assembling: - (4) 5/8� nuts and bolts - (2) 1� removeable pin hinge - (6) buckles for leather seating and reign
