Slow Infrastructure: New coupling between city and metro
WUSTL Degree Project / Solo Project Project Type: Recreation Year: 2018 Fall Instructor: Eric Hoffman The project investigates a new type of infrastructure which couples with a conmunity library, a transit hub and a flea market. The site locates at the Rock Road Station, St. Louis. where is the intersection for multiple infrastructural facilities. Considering about the relationship between people and the infrastructure, my intention would be reactivating the metrolink station and desining a new type of soft and complex infrastructural facility which serves for the neighborhood.

Country mouse & City mouse: Connected and separated house with courtyard
WUSTL Optional Studio / Solo Project Project Type: Residential Year: 2017 Fall Instructor: Patty Heyda This project comes to terms with the realities of the city and its hinterland through an examination of sites along the hypothetical rural-urban 'transect' (St. Louis region) to establish a new working framework for what thse contexts mean and what their relationships are to each other. The project includes two houses designs, one of them locates in the urbanwhile the other in the suburban. Both of the designs are based on the site analyze and population research, they take the courtyard as the key element. However, the courtyard, which could be the connector or separator, plays different rolse in the two houses because of the diversity of context. These two housing designs are going to explain how are living habits today defined by complexities of the site? What are the new Country Mouse, City Mouse narratives and what forms do they take?

Between light and silence: Martin Luther King Jr. branch for Cleveland Public Library
WUSTL Optional Studio / Solo Project Project Type: Library Year: 2018 Spring Instructor: Javier Maroto This project is located at the University Circle, Cleveland, where is the contextual transition point for the city: on the north side of the site, the context is belong to the urban; on the south side of the site, the context is belong to the greenland system. Considering about the different context condition on both sides of the site, my intention would be creating two types of the spaces where we can find the book and read the book. In this project, I am trying to follow Louis Kahn's library design philosophy: storing books in the dark and reading books in the light. I designed the libray with two different strategies: one space has clear linear grid system for the bookshelf, the other space is more flexible and fragmental for the reading area. These two structreus are connected by the skybridge. In this way, people would enter the building from the urban side, find books and then bring them to the other side, where facing the greenland area.

Light intersection: The dormitory in South Chicago
Mass study WUSTL Core Studio / Solo Project Project Type: Residential Year: 2016 Fall Instructor: Philip Holden This project is a combination of light phenomenon and social issue. The light phenomenon shows two beams of light overlap together and interact with each other. The social issue is about providing an both affordable and comfortable housing for the university students in Chicago. In this project, the public system and private system overlap in two directions separately in order to match the site geography. In this way, the building will merge into the site and be an extended part of a charter school. The student who come from different school will have more opportunities communicating with each other in this building.

Huopu International Architectural Competition/ Group Work Project Type: Teaching Building Year: 2015 Fall Instructor: Xiaonan Wang
The 2015 Huopu International architectural competition is aimed at creating buildings which are evolutive in mutipul ways. The buildings should consider both geographical condition and traditional local culture at the same time. This project is located in Kangding, Sichuan province, where served as the link between the Tibetan culture and the Han culture. As the fact of the development of the city and the increase of the population, this region is presenting a more and more complicated architecture style. What we are concerning is trying to figure out the equilibrium point of these two cultures.

This theatre will be served as one of the landmarks of Chengduâ€™s downtown cultural building group in the future. The concept of which comes from the acient drama stage built among the mountains, emphasizing the characteristic of Sichuanâ€™s landscape.
