JAPAN SAPPORO SKI�RESORT Firm work, MADA s.p.a.m., 2013
Location: Sapporo, Hokkaido, Japan Project type: hotel complex Program: 32,682m², apartments, hotel, retails Directors: Marcelo Franganillo, Can-Cui Team members: Yi-Zeng, Jiaxin-Du Contributions: Developed one of the design schemes; built Rhino model for rendering; created drawings and layouts for presentation. Softwares used: Rhino, AutoCAD, PS, AI.
Total building area: 32,682㎡ Site area: 9,917㎡ F.A.R: 3.29 Coverage: 36.6% Amenity & Services: 2,157㎡ Retail: 356㎡ Apartments: 14,705㎡ Garage: 4,418㎡ Circulation & Services: 7,753㎡ Hotel: 3,305㎡
FUNCTIONS The site is located in a snow mountain in the city of Sapporo, the largest city on the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido. Sapporo has a humid continental climate with an average snowfall of 630mm. Sapporo is one of the few metropolises in the world with such heavy snowfall. The site is covered by snow in the most of the time of the year. Also there is a hot spring near the site.
The design concept came from the surrounding features of the site: mountain peak. The whole building is divided into 6 individual pieces according to diﬀerent functions. We cut two vertices of each piece to make some terraced space for sightseeing, balconies and entrances.

When I saw the program and site, what interested me most is the urban structure along the two sides of the border. It’s totally diﬀerent, shows the conﬂicts of road density, building scales, building usages and cultural diﬀerent. I took those diﬀerences into my project and let people feel those diﬀerences when they go through the border stations. The forms of buildings combined with the grids taken from the urban structure.

THE RENOVATION PROJECT OF QING HUI TEMPLE Design studio work, Studio Xubo-Yang, August 2012 Project Location: Hui Province, Henan, China Team member: Mr. Qiushi-Peng Director: Mr. Xubo-Yang Software used: Revit Architecture, AutoCAD, PS, AI
Qing Hui Temple is the main temple of the Weiyuan ancient chinese building groups, located in Hui Province, Henan, China. First built in 1215 Sui Dynasty and rebuilt in Ming Dynasty after hundred years. It’s one of the most famous travelling places in China. We took pictures, measured all the components of the temple, built Revit model and drew ﬂoor plans. Learning new architectural softwares and making computer models are two of my hobbies. Revit Architecture is one of the softwares I like to use most. The model of the Qing Hui Temple is made by Revit, since Revit is the most suitable software to make complex building models and produce ﬂoor plans.

Academic work, NCUT, April-June 2011 Project Location: Shijingshan district, Beijing, China Project Type: Reconstruction of an old industrial area Program: 320,000m², residential, kindergartens, elementary school, club Team member: Mr. Wei-Huai Instructors: Mr. Xubo-Yang, Mrs. Wenjie-Lin Software used: Rhino, Grasshopper, AutoCAD, PS, AI, Ecotect Analysis
I analysed diﬀerent customer groups and their demands, then provided the planning ideas of the site: the north part of the site is the high-rise residential building area for young-professional, since it is closer to major traﬃc hub, while the south area is closest to river and green spaces, would best for rest and relaxation, so we design the south part as the slab-type building area for aged people.

HONG KONG BOUNDARY CROSSING FACILITIES Academic work, NCUT, May-July 2010
Project Location: HongKong, China Project Type: Landport of entry Instructors: Mr. Xin-Ma, Ms. Rui-Yang Software used: Revit Architecture, AutoCAD, PS, AI
I used ‘ﬂowing’ as the core design concept in the design of the Hong Kong Boundary Crossing Facilities. Features of ‘ﬂowing’ are expressed in diﬀerent aspects such as ﬂoor plans, functional streamlines, interior spaces and the exterior style, making the building with streamlined beauty and qualiﬁed function, as well as providing much convenience for passengers.
