02.Hybrid Peking On how to form a space and tell a stroy

Many things are formidable, and none more formidable than Man! Man are skillful! He together build cities. He together build up species stronger than He, in big cities like BJ. Archetypes of things are erected, morphed, copied, pasted, reproduced, generation cascading through generation. Man haven’t got time to deal with the things in this city; He haven't got time to acquire some knowledge of how to deal with those things in this city. He must be: More quick good energy-saving. Hybrid Beijing is more of a piece of context than an architecture project. It tries to explore a new way of story telling and space making in an information age like now. The site of the project is at Wangfujing. A historical place with mixed context and complicated condition. The area is surrounded with architects which context could be derived from Western, Chinese, historical, contemporary. So the best word to describe the site is "Hybrid".

The site is located in Kaifeng, HeNan Province, China, which was the biggest city in the world during Song Dynasty 1000 years age, while now has dramatically declined. The residents here have serious Song complex. Most of the nearly constructed architecture are Song Style with poor quality. So for this special urban context, we Started to research from Song drawing, aimed at extracting abstract element and trying to coordinate with modernism architecture system. The project is a study, and a cultural sarcastic.

04.The Heidegger's Museum On how to create a mini-size universe of meaning

The site of this project is at Xi Zhimen Bridge, Beijing. The bridge is famous for its absurd complexity which is necessary to meet the function of transportation. The bridge itself is a notorious labyrinth as the transportation centre for Beijing. The project aims to exploring the paradoxic of the site and the city. Revealing the complexity and blur of the crazy Beijing city in an ironic way. The project itself is a self-contained Mini-Universe. Mixing the conceptual meaning of Heidegger, the Chinese architecture elements, conceptual diagram -based form manipulation, a small but rich inner universe is given birth. Here is Beijing, a mad city full of complexity and paradoxical.

House for der Himmel

House for die Sterblichen

This house is a symbol of sky, or to say, a monument to sky.

This is the house for those about to die, or to say, people.

There is no real house here. Only a big landscape fall down The house is composed of layers of floor extracted from the from floor, with a giant spotlight erecting at the centre. The light architects all over Beijing. Just like a CCTV's floor, a T3 airport's is always glittering to the sky, to the Himmel above. floor and many houses else. So the architecture itself is a monument of people,or civilization in Beijing.
