Shuttle “Tower “ Design The Making of Design Principles focuses on two interrelated aspects of design: the elements of composition and their formal, spatial, and tectonic manipulation; the meanings conveyed by formal choices and transformations. The project is the final product of a series of architectural explorations through the examination of a non architectural phenomenon. Student was originally tasked with design a paper falling shuttle, like a paper parachute+airplane hybrid of sorts. The design parameters for the shuttle was up to the student’s discretion.The root of this project, then, is a shuttle that is deceptive and ambiguous. From the shuttle, architecture was to be found.

Final Shuttle

Shuttle Geometry

A single piece of paper when dropped can fall in many different ways; and the possibilities are endless depending on the methods used in manipulating them. This paper shuttle was started from the simple rectanglular geometry. The falling was designed in controlable and precise method in order to repeat the same traits. The main characteristic of the shuttle fall is “flip” and a subtle “swing”, resulting from unsymmmetrical wings and the two large curves. The falling of the shuttle becomes a part of a series of moments captured in time. In essence, a building was to be created in order to observe the fall of the shuttle.


Sectional drawing describing motion of original shuttle Studied the fall of the complex shape by abstracting the geometry. The main structure of the shuttle are the flip axis and the central curve, which cause the shuttle to flip. The Time-Lapse drawings show the differences from the flip axis straight line to the “T shape� curve, then to the curve itself.


The study model was developed as extending the movement of the flip axis to the boundry, thereby allowing the visitors to experience the space which becomes a part of the staircase system. The shapes formed by the resulting points provide varying spatial relationships, creating a consequence of spatial experience through circulation.

1F Plan 16” = 1’-0”

This building locates in a narrow site restricted on both sides by exisiting buildings, a site that is roughly 20ft x100ft long with a slight slope. Based on programs, the design was divided into two parts, public area and private area, together with two circulations. The shuttle drop point locates at the intersection of the two circulations. The crossing of the stairs at the intersection are defined by landing where people can observe the shuttle. There is a deliberate prolonging of experience: in some moments, you walk on the front side, while in other moments you move on the opposite side.

The interior design follows the radial structure which integrate circulation with programs. Public and exhibition spaces are organized around main stairs connecting first floor and second floor, while non-public living area is demarcated by a semi-circle screen with similar tectonics.


Project 02

Compensation as Ascending Order Industrial Reactivation

Type: Industrial Reactivation

The project is to reactivate an abandoned dockyard in Hanjiang riverside. Existing industrial building relic is a row of brick warehouse with exposed steel truss. While keeping the structure of the warehouse, the proposal is to generate urban life in the

Date: 2014.01

during rain season, the landscape is to create a wetland , both as a response to loacal hydrology and as land for new dynamic activities.

IMAGERY Most times when I start to do design, the first thing that came to my mind is imagery. I tried to capture the unstable moment when I had a strong feeling of some spatial experience, which I believe should be the basis of the incoming building design. After drawing them down, I can set a chain of images which can guide me to origanize the new design.

The site is surrounded by residential, with easy access to transportation center. It can be a communal/exhibition center. The imagery gives me a forsight to design new built and existing part. The site (including the surrounding area) is a alluvial plain created by Hanjiang river. Water-level changes drastically during the year and all the area will be covered with water in wet season. Since Wuhan is a relatively humid city, wet season usually lasts for a long time (3-4 months). A large scale landscape which serve as an expansion of the proposed building space can be developed in riverside area. The planting should be designed to eliminate land toxicity and consists of different levels.

It is reasonable to reverse the shape of existing building to serve as compensation spaces. After developing the basic shapes, the building can have many unexpected spaces. On the left listed several example which can be organized into final design.


Using the four basic shapes to make diff void shapes in the building as is show the left. These are resulted of selecting w proper to develop or to use as an intere outer space.

The section drawing clearly shows what is proposed, with many of the key spaces generated from the basic shapes. A profound connection and composition is developed to provide rich spatial experience.

The section of clearly shows what I pursue, with many of the key spaces generated from symmetric space without connection to ground

Project 03

The Elephant Social Science Design In 2014, I was involved in the exchange program that takes a systematic approach to doing research about domestic violence with the Pro. Jacqueline Leavitt in UCLA. I was involved by the serious issue of domestic violence in American. After that, I decided to do a design project located in New York based on my research into the domestic violence. The goal is to create a space where women under domestic violence can relax themselves at the same time help others.

MATERIAL AND ATMOSPHERE I chose brick as the exterior wall material to make the building stand in harmony with the surrounding. To strength the bright and curing atmosphere in the design, I propose light color wall finishes for interior and pink furniture and millworks. A uniform distributed lighting is also designed to provide smoother interior space. All the activities designed within the space are working together with material composition.

In psychology, helping others as a self-fufillment will in turn eliminate anxiety. Thus I proposed a mixed building consisting of kindergarten, kitchen and food bank. Within the building, women under domestic violence are employed to make food for kids and poor people. They also have opportunities to communicate with their kids in the spare time. PAGE 10

To address a bright and curing atmosphere in the design, I discovered circle as the basic geometrical element of the form. Spaces that derive from women’s need are developed from circle, among which similar circles are placed at the same location from 1st to 3rd floor to strength a vertical connection. The connection between 2nd and 3rd floor is very strong to enhance the communication between kids and moms.

Across the Cracks Infospace Design The historical building, Dazhi Railway station and its surrounding land sits on a junction where two groups of people (young migrants and old local residents) meets. The incompatibility of the two group have been preventing the site from been rennovated for a long time. The design proposal therefore, is to make the building a solution to this problem, providing a welcoming space for both group by transforming parts of the contradiction into dramas.

From the field survey and questionary, I discovered the site as a crack between the two areas occupied by the two different groups. If a site where people can cross-by can be proposed, it would not only smooth the local transportation, but also creates fascinating scenes for visitors and residents.

With an analysis of the daily activities of the two different groups of people, the strategy becomes clear: creating several pairs of spaces to meet the demands of the different groups; the space between the pair becomes the “crack” to serve as a buffer area. The pairs are seperated also connected.

The final design brings the site back to life by separating the two groups to minimize disturbance. The most identical activities forms the most interesting space, and the most interesting space within one pair are fully exposed to the crack (circulation) that the other group will eventually discover the significant and irreplaceable essence of each others’ identity.

CONSTRUCTION PRACTICE

During my study in architecture, I have participated in lots of construction practice, including the 1:1 construction for a Japanese Tea Ceremony Pavilion in which the pattern, structure and composition of home-deopt paint stick was deeply discussed. Also, the material cource provides me with a good command of all kinds of basic materials, from brick to concrete and steel. Through that I had a better comprehension of architecture as a construction activity that material is the foundation of space.
