STAR SAND RESORT

2020 SPRING

PROFESSIONAL

This professional work is the master planning resort project located at Guam island. The master planning program includes a welcome center, retail stores, villas, hotels, and a water park. We utilize the hill’s topography to create the best view for single villas, separating by the retail stores with the main connection road in order to create different privacy. The water park is surrounded by two high-rise hotels that allow direct access for tourism as well as enjoying the view of the ocean.

COMMUNITY This project invites the community into the site along with a central pedestrian parkway that facilities socially-focused civic spaces and organizes the new buildings. Arranged as a spine, a heavy timber trellis system along the parkway connects three buildings which demonstrate the creative p o t e n t i a l s of t i m b e r t e c h n o l o g y : 1 ) A residential tower built of cross-laminated timber (CLT) walls and floors utilizing a ver tical tension cable fastening system, locking the residential units into a tall stack at a height surpassing CLT towers currently underway. 2) A community wellness center featuring curved glulam beams overhead, gesturing to views across the river and reflecting the waves of the pools within. 3) An early childhood education center built with traditional post and beam timber construction as an extension of the post and beam trellis system along the pedestrian way.

CIVIC

The main idea are the integration of both ancient Cahokia and the expression of the cycle of plant life. This can be seen from its form which not only expresses this modern reinterpretation of “Reaching for the Sky�, which is apart of Cahokian belief, but it also represents the transition from traditional to future greenhouse design. The integration into the landscape accents the Cahokian grid through the atrium, and it also creates a visual narrative of the life cycle of plants. Furthermore, by building up vertical rather than horizontal, we reduce the build space on site and reclaim the rest to nature.

Program: AutoCAD, Revit, Lumion, Adobe Suite, Rhino, Sketchup


While the first time I saw the site, it was heavily occupied by industrial activity. I want to give this historical site back to nature, their culture, and their memory...

EDUCATION

Program: AutoCAD, Lumion, Adobe Suite, Rhino

Influence strives to promote healthy community growth through a gradual release model that aims to find intersections between academics and crucial skills pertaining to the students’lives. There is a focus on finite skills; the ability to develop concepts of print, phonemic awareness, phonics and the alphabetical code at a young age. As they grow older there is a focus on furthering lifelong skills of literacy such as comprehension and vocabulary development. The pen-pal program will help strengthen skills of reading and literacy. Math and science will pertain directly to the independent studies of skills. Through fishing, farming and creation the curriculum will cultivate the intersections between all subject areas and skills ne cessary for the growth of the community.

This project is designed for Dave and Amy for the rest of their life. In order to distinguished from the traditional living way, the house creates the brand-new experience for them to entry the next phase of their life. This is not the house for family, but for the seclusion and retirement which are more involved into natural environment. However, they can still interact with neighborhood as they want based on different privacy of program. In other ward, they can control their own level of exposure by themselves, increasing the flexibility.

SEED

2018 Summer

SPACE

In a past life, mars contained natural resources that maintained a sustainable ecosystem for life. The goal is to someday retain a habitat adequate for life by planting a seed, that over time, nourishes the current ecosystem. The self-sustaining seed planted into mars will take advantage of the high-speed winds, increased solar radiation due to the thin atmosphere, and the soils faint water content to maintain a controlled climate indoors for the five researchers. In time, as the seeds begin to grow in numbers, the ecosystem of mars grows.

WIND

SOIL

The maximum solar radiance on Mars is about 590 W/m2 compared to about 1000 W/m2 at the Earths surface because Mars is further away from the sun. A clear glazing facade takes advantage of the sun at various angles for plants inside, and the solar panels to generate energy when possible

The low gravity of Mars allows for much greater wind speeds. Under the right weather conditions, the wind speed on Mars can reach up to 30 meters per sec. The turbine design takes advantage of the wind speed and generates energy for the building. Furthermore, Mars atmosphere contains 95% CO2 which can also be reduced gradually by photosynthesis from the vegetations.

The site located in Valles Marineris lets low-volume liquid brines easier to taken in shallow mar tian soil. Also, because Mars core is closer comparing to Earth, the surface temperature is more efficient to evacuate through geothermal heat, p ro v i d i n g a n o t h e r s o u rc e of e n e rg y.

2018 Spring

Program: Revit, AutoCad, Adobe Suite, Sketchup

URBANISM

This project is about designing the whole city block located at Champaign Downtown. Not only designing for market hall itself, but the whole block have to be considered with different functional buildings under FAR and other building codes. My idea is to alignment the important axises of the city and remain the path to reconnect them to visual relationship, defining the volume of surrounding buildings and the central market hall. The market hall is composed from simple, triangular modules in both two dimensions which are stall’s layout and the wooden truss structure.

COMMERCIAL

Champaign downtown has ver y strong connection with the university. It is not only giving the entertainment to students but also providing the living spaces for tons of families who are visiting their children at University of Illinois. However, living in hotel is still not as comfortable as living home because of insufficient space for gathering and cooking. Therefore, my goal is to create the hotel which has the program for every member in the family. It is ver y easy to access to the building that will not confused any age in families, creating lots of gathering space for different families at the same floor to share experience and interaction. This hotel is design for family, making new friends and intimacy.

The idea of this end table is for experimenting the cantilever of the wooden structure, resulting the Z-shape legs for stabling. In order to keep the unique grain on the top, the slab was cut into half and filliped to retain the rectangular edges. In addition, the river-like epoxy resin at the middle gap was pour not only for the light penetration, but also for the appearance of the rough edge of wooden slab.
