Hefei Airport Core Zone Urban Design Sino-German Innovation Town
This project is designed by the firm PPAS at 2017, I was worked for this group as an entry level urban plan designer. This project was a collaborative effort by 9 people. My role in this group was draw site existing condition for site boundary, buildings, roads, airport height envelop, agricultural, sream and water bodies in CAD, than export to VectorWork to finalised existing condition maps. I built sketchUp model for buildings, draw site analysis in illustrator and design for Community, Exhibition Center, Center Park,Promenade and Eco-Corridors. Than, Used PowerPoint and InDesign to get things together for report. This project was win the bid. The location for this project is at Hefei Airport Core Zone. Hefei is a important position for Yangtze River Delta where connect three most important cities: Shanghai, Hangzhou, and Nanjing. It also connect the west and east side of China. The great position give Hefei a big opportunity to develop their economy and become the fourth city for Yangtze-Delta. This project aim to develop the Hefei Airport Core Zone as a key node for global industry cooperation. Take advantages of existing industries, multiply ways of transportations and ecological condition to design a innovation town for Hefei Airport Core Zone.
Location: Hefei Airport Core Zone Project Type: Urban Design Firm: Pesch Partner Architekten Stadtplaner Date: April, 2017
Regional Context This urban design project aim to develope Hefei Province to the 4th important city for Yangtze-Delta, since Hefei is connecting big cities between west and east sides. Hefei has lots of advantage for transportation becasue high-speed-railway is establishing now that enhance the land transportation. Water transportation also let Hefei Province more accessible. The design concept is "1331" structure for urban area, which means one maine city, three assist cities, three industrial new city and one Chao Lake develope district. "1331" Structure for Yangtze Concerned geography, green corridors, and River Delta river system when designed this project.
Road and Circulation
Agricultural and Water Bodies
"International Synergies and Competition" is the most important factor to achieve global competition for Yangtze River Delta.
Function: Xinqiao Airport, Intelligent Manufacturing and Agriculture Industry are 3 main core areas. Using innovation service corridor like Exhibition Center to connect two industries service areas: Agricultural and Intelligent Manufacturing Service Center.
Shanghai, Hangzhou, and Nanjing are the economic center for Yangtze River Delta. Hefei as the fourth level of urban development and promote economic development for the west side of China. Innovation and connecting to international is important factors to achieve the goals.
Structure: The core areas: west side is Agricultural Commerce Area and the easy side is Intelligent Manufacturing Area. Using existing water body and green area to create lots of natural corridors. Those corridors naturally seperate this site to different functions and industry development units.
Transportation: K o n g g a n g N e w To w n h a s g r o u n d transportations underground transportations and water transportation connects other cities. Now, has Airport Highway, Huxia Highway, Jiling Highway. Tuanfei Road, Wangchang Road, Xingye Road for Express Way. Water transportation is connect North and South.

GreenHeart 2017 Campus RainWorks EPA Challenge
University of Florida, Gainesville, Florida
Project description: Lake Alice--its most critical and iconic environment--as its green "heart", and water as its lifeblood. Four hydrologically informed corridors (the veins) flow through campus to Lake Alice. This project is aim to improve water quality in Lake Alice, to improve social and environmental connectivity, and to improve public engagement. GreenHeart address the Reitz Ravine Vein to demostrate how these goals can be met for the entire Lake Alice warershed. RMAs reduce gray infrastructure area by 80%, allowing polluted and excessive volumes of rainwater to infiltrate underground instead of contaminating and inundating downspout, permeable pavement, stormwater planter, and Xweiscaping. The master plan identifies seven spatial typologies and RAMs are strategically selected for suitability for each typology. Typologies consist of the athletic venue, plaza, passageway, intimate quadrangle, campus green, conservation area, and green street. Equally important, a comprehensive interpretive scheme combats an "out of sight, out of mind" mentality by revealing rainwater and informing the public about its significance. GreenHeart is comprised of many key components, that like our body, combine to form the greater organism. This portfolio shows the typology for Buckman Street.
Problem: Impacts jeopardizing the delicate campus ecosystem can be observed during significant rainfall events. The region is known for its wet and dry seasons, complicating management. During winter and spring of 2017, Gainsville experienced one of its longest drought followed by record-breaking summer rainfall totaling over 33 inches in just a 2 month period. If climate change predictions are correct, such rainfall extremes may become the norm (Marino). Current campus water quality is sub-standard. UF's urbanization and associated increase in impervious surfaces will exacerbate this issue. Impervious surfaces concentrate water normally absorbed into the ground into downstream conveyances collecting pollutants and eventually resulting in toxic concentrations in vulnerable areas like Lake Alice.

Watershed Basin Diagram
Vein Concept Diagram
Lake Alice Watershed The Lake Alice watershed is comprised of 36 densely developed basins. Four main hydrological corridors connect these basins. GreenHeart likens these corridors to veins. 40% of the watershed area is impervious and runoff is "conveyed through a serious surfaces it accumulates pollutants like sediments, nitrogen, and phosphorus. After Lake Alice, the polluted water seeps into the Floridian Aquifer, the primary source of drinking water for the state. Site Location

Buckman Drive-Storm Event
Rain Garden Tree Bed Curb Cut Bioswale Permeable Pavement The perspective shows how RMAs functioning during a storm event. The xeriscape tree canopy slows and reduces water to the ground. Disconnected downspouts redirect water into bioswales and rain gardens that then collect and filter water. Meanwhile, permeable pavement absorbs sheet flow and direct rainfall.
Rainwater Calculation Rainwater calculations reveal GreenHeart's potential improvement of water quality following RMA intervention. The measure used to assess this improvement is change in peak runoff discharge. If runoff is significantly lowered, then the specific issues f nutrient loading and sedimentation will be addressed.
Within the Dairy basin, peak runoff discharge decreases from 23.4 to 15.8 cubic feet/second a 33% reduction.
