01 SCORING PORTA GENOVA Fall 2016, LARP 701 Beauty and Form, Upenn Often times we see composers writing music pieces based on landscape experiences, but when it comes to the other way around, we rarely see examples of a piece of landscape that is designed and inspired by music. Thus the goal of this project is to try to explore the relationship between music and landscape, finding ways in representing music in landscape. When it comes to the representation of music, both John Cage’s abstract diagrams and Lawrence Halprin’s “Motation system” helped in developing my own methods. The strategy that has been applied in this project is a process of “Record and Orchestrate“. The recording process at different scales allows for an unconventional way of reading the context. It is not only about the physical or geographical location of certain systems but also interpreting the land and the various moments based on music principals. The two main principals that have been used are the ”dynamics” and “Rhythm“. Dynamics is hard and soft of the notes that have been played, feeling and emotion that the place generate.(Atmosphere, texture, Emotion).Rhythm is how the notes are arranged, elements are organized to achieve such feeling and emotion. (Form, strategies, Moments). The site is then divided into five different passages that together forms an coherent experience for the people.

02 THE LIVING QUARRY-SCAPE Fall 2015, LARP 601 Green Stimuli Studio, Upenn The three major issues of the Slate Belt region are the fragmented habitat, underutilized trails and forgotten industrial heritage. The main goal is to find the appropriate way of reclaiming and re-purposing these significant quarry sites as a base of intervention to redefine its importance and having them not only serving as a local destination but also providing a greater connection to the existing trail systems and habitats. The main approaches that were taken on included opening up the views to towns ,increasing the programmatic opportunities and improving the accessibility, while at the same time developing a basis of a landscape design that restore and improve the ecology on site that supports a diverse kinds of habitat for wildlife. The site is divided into three main areas, each one of them carries the some of the same characters but with different emphasizes. The first node is emphasized on its recapturing of the heritage and Improving its cultural and recreational opportunities, the second node is about preserving the landscape in time and have limited human interaction with the landscape, and the third node is more about a process or a continuum of time that the landscape is working to recover itself, the habitats are being improved and some more passive programs are being involved.

03 LIVING WITH THE “SEA“ Spring 2016, LARP 602 Urban Design Studio, Upenn Team work Role: Team Leader (Graphic that was not done by me was cited)

The Red Hook Container Terminal site perfectly encapsulates the competing pressures of conversion of underutilized industrial lands to other productive uses, the increasing gentrification of the Brooklyn area with cravings for high end development slowly forcing affordable housings out of the area. For the first half of the semester, the team focuses on a set of systematic analysis of the region and finding our premise goals for the future development of the site.With the analysis primarily focusing on the increasing water-related issues such as flooding and water pollution in combination of the need for a diversify kinds of industries. We found the interesting opportunity to bring algea and related industry into our site as a primary driver for building an resilient and performing waterfront district.

04 CHI-TOWN ENGINE Spring 2017, ULI Competition Team work : Xinyi Ye,Cody Erhart,Wenhao Wu,Yajing Zhao,Yifeng Zhao Role: Idea Generation,Graphic Production The Chi-Town Engine draws from Chicago’s rich cultural and industrial heritage to embrace its continued place as the primary hub of innovation and creativity in the American Midwest. The plan leverages a strategy for the redevelopment and branding of the Goose Bend Neighborhood that capitalizes on the district’s most distinct “mechanisms”: industry, community, and resiliency.

Integrating New & Existing Developments Parcel A and an expanded Parcel C allows for an integrated neighborhood development bridging the North Branch Chicago River. Selling Parcel B as equity encourages market forces to revitalize existing developments west of the site to enable holistic neighborhood development.

Transit Circulation

Equitable Transit for Visitors & Residents Connecting the heart of the site to Clybourn and North/ Clybourn Stations via shuttle service enables low-income individuals access to the resources of the Skills and Leadership Center and encourages residents of the neighborhood to ride public transit to their jobs in downtown and greater Chicago.

Figure-ground

Embracing Industrial Fabric Removal of undesired structures coupled with renovation of one of the Fleet & Facility Management buildings engages the site's cherished past while energizing the edge between new and existing developments. Intentionally leaving west Goose Bend untouched encourages market forces to reinvest in the neighborhood.

Road Circulation

Enhanced Pedestrian & Bicycle Linkages Vehicular and bicycle accessibility is greatly enhanced via a connector between N. Clybourn St. and N. Elston Ave.. Two pedestrian bridges extend across the river to afford access and extend the Bloomingale Trail to Lincoln Park and beyond.

Open Space Framework

Landscape as Urbanism

By: Cody

Open space is utilized as the organizing agent for the Goose Bend Neighborhood. The river's concrete edge is removed and the slope regraded to allow room for the river to flood and ecological niches. Numerous pedestrian streets capture stormwater and people and channel them towards the river's edge.

06 PROFESSIONAL WORKS Mikyoung Kim Design, Summer,2016 Kieth LeBlanc Landscape Architecture. 2014-2015

The works shown here ranges from a varies scales of highend residential designs and small commercial development which includes courtyard, roof terraces and streetscape design. These works has help me to have a deeper realization of the fine materials, craftsmanship, grading and plantings of these site design project. During my time at these offices, I was glad to have been exposed to a variety of tasks which included not only the design visualization but also the technical and communicational aspects of the field.

Exploring drawings through the use of different mediums has always been a passion of mine since an early age. I love the richness in textures that various mediums convey. I hope I can continuously bringing my passion in the works I create in the future. Besides drawings, the art installation projects that I have participated and other model studies that I have done had helped me to think about the design of landscape not only from a “Plan� but also from very different perspectives.
