2. VERTICAL-COURTYARD Inspire by Chinese traditional courtyard house; I design a three-dimensional courtyard for ten people to live. The transformation from the two-dimensional space to vertical courtyard can improve people’s living privacy requirements. Moreover, the integration of the vertical communication space can also enhance the relationship between people.

2. DONG GUAN HISTORICAL BLOCK RENNOVATION As the great status of the Dong Guan Block in dalian,The revival of Dongguan Street is a very important and very complicated. China’s current historical blocks transformation design are often improved only in appearance, or demolition and reconstruction, but the cause of the problem is not indepth study.

In this design, we start with the solution of social problems, and put forward a more comprehensive design method, in general, solving the problem should be a process rather than the results.


3. CHAPEL OF LIGHT Chapel of Light offers four different of the type of light experience for user in the USC campus, by analysis the feature of light( direct light, reflect light, refract light), and the engagement between the light and material, which creates a colorful visual experience.


4. TRANSPARENCY & TRANSLUCENCY Building Skin in USC Campus

Based on the study of the typology of brick, the Transparency & Translucency transfer the form of solid brick to the form of transparent skin, which creates an absurd contradiction of material characters. The skin consists of three type of units with a different opening. Besides, the arrangement of the units is determined by the requirements of the daylighting and ventilation in the parking lot.


5. FURNITURE DESIGN

To explore more on the relationship between human and design, I also designed a chair and a table. The steel serves as the structure while the wood panels serve as the surface that has direct contact with human. The chair seat surface is 16 inch high while the table surface is 18 inch high, and they are quite friendly to have a cup of coffee.
