THE FACTORY OF ARTIST

THE RIBA PART II THESIS

THE FACTORY OF ARTISTS


“There is no space without event.

-Bernard Tschumi.

The thesis starts with a question: should architectural design follow “events” or “principles”? By contrasting principle based designs with events based ones, this thesis navigates urban planning of ancient cities, such as, Athen and Miletus from the Ancient Greece, and Antwerp as well as Glasgow in the 19th century. The thesis explores the interpretation of “events” by a way of personal experiences, e.i., physical events during a few days’ site investigation in Antwerp and a self-made film (the virtual events of stories happened in both cities of Antwerp and Glasgow and uses them as diagram generation bases to produce structure of plan and spatial pattern of site and building to try to bring about a conversion of the selected site from an almost forgotten place on an island, into a new events rich land. The site is on the Droogdokkeneiland, one of the oldest port site in Antwerp. Delimited on one side by the natural Scheldt river bank and on the other by dry docks, offering beautiful views of the entire quay line, it is on the cultural axis of Antwerp’s city plan. Six docks prove the maritime history of the city. Today the Droogdokkeneiland has been involved into the development plan of city. A river park, Droogdokken Park is under construction.

The development of the sites would complete the wholeness of cultural axis on Antwerp’s city plan that allows people to experience a journey from the medieval core to the new generated part of the city, while becoming the perfect background to narrate a new story of the city. A three hundred meters long linear groundscrape along longitudinal axis adjacent to Drydokken, made of eight segregated parts, attached with a newly optimized and revised city park, has been proposed as a new monument and land mark of the city to revitalize this area through a method by running events lines and linked cultural and landmark axis through the land as clues to build up spaces. As a result, a threshold between the two incoherent landscapes, the riverside park in a panoramic natural view and several dry docks with confused looks while processing in works as working fields, starts a dialogue on a division line longitudinally penetrated through the main building as a filter to reassemble the original into a renewed cultural system.

In terms of consideration on the methodology how to translate the two types of “events�-personal events from experiences as a role of tourist arriving Antwerp and an ongoing film on timelines which segregates the space into two parts represented by both cities of Antwerp & Glasgow with a story about a girl bewildered by her alternative psychological situation and personality, the project bases on the represented lines generated from spots happened as events upon the Antwerp city map towards a lot of referential and symbolic points picked, together with axis being able to contextualize and connect the important landmarks around adjacent environments and even expending to the whole city, which have become main resources to create the design of both landscape and building.

The building, named as the artists factory, is made as a paradise to young artists and others who feel interested in arts or related affairs, in order to promoting the development of arts as an important heritage to the tradition of Antwerp being pride to her fame on arts in the ancient time, by delivering a series of multiple functions including in public services consisting of half open air public activity fields, auditoriums, church and entertainment space on the ground floor and stores, restaurants, cafes, teahouses, exhibitions and etc on 2nd and 3rd floor, as well as artists apartments with studios on 4th and 5th floor, which, from the ground floor through the 3rd floor, have been woven into a string of “shots”( categorical parts) of film consisting of 14 chapters with voids attached on each and also divided into two parts from the middle by a solid wall, a way to visualize and dramatize my exploration and perception towards the two cities: Antwerp on the western side standing for good with the opened view toward the park and Glasgow on the right side for evil with the closed view toward the docks, respectively representing the good and the bad side of the girl in her alternative personalities. A three-dimensional cycle path follows the sequence of these chapters guides people go through the entire building with the progressing narration of spatial experiences corresponding to the scenarios in the film. The path begins with a cluster of “Churches of Spirit”three contemplative spaces focusing on rituals and experiences reflected with different lights -the daylights, dusks, pouring down of light spots- and a tower on the end to leading to the different heights toward the top to overlook away to the Scheldt River, providing a more quiet, individual reflective experiences. After having already swept through the whole seven chapters of the building upon the turning around trek on the west representing to the “Antwerp events”, the supposed viewer or “audience” by a bike would probably turn around at the “Church of Body”, an indoor bike park taken a similar form of cone for extreme bike experiences, symbolizing a worship to the flesh, and then go back through the other chapters on the other side representing to the “Glasgow events” until reach the start point, “Church of Spirit”, for a worship to the soul, to finish a cycle of film experience journey. Cycling trek is also integrated into the outdoor cycling park transformed from one of the dry dock, as well as connected to the larger area of municipal cycling trek system. The functional pedestrians in the building are allowed to enjoy nomadic promenade and exploration in the complexity of spaces, achieved by the non-linear circulation. For the cyclist, there are bike parking spaces within the building to take a rest or transfer themselves into pedestrian for a further exploration of the spaces by walking.

The locations of sites for projects of urban exchange The Locations of Sites for Projects of Urban Exchange 1:1000

This area of govanhill was good working-class area for Glasgow but since the war, the area has absorbed many new cultures, such as from India, Pakistan and Poland. These could be seen to be travellers, coming to view the area, as a new potential homeland. They brought with them their language, culture, activities and skills, which you can hear and see as you walk through this area. There is already a thriving art community in Govanhill but many of these artists work individually and somewhat isolated from each other. My hope is to use my art gallery to draw them together to exchange ideas and inspiration which can create an atmosphere of unity in diversity. These now indigenous travellers who come to these place as a new home can share the identity as they use the workshop in this gallery to create the artwork, which expresses their travelling experiences. I see this drawing new travellers who want to come and meet these now indigenous travellers and become enthusiastic recipients of a new art, something Using the gallery as an art form, this programme aims to create various peaceful spaces, giving dynamic opportunity for movement of the visiting travellers around this space. My intention is to attract people entering the space to sense that they are travellers on a journey to discover new ideas, new feelings, to experience through time and space. Many small rooms are allocated in the design, the well-designed small space could be space to play, delivers a sense of friendly space, not alien space. Also, it offers more chances to let body be touched by body. Travellers belong to a special category who come from other places in UK and abroad. They have experiences and special viewpoints to matters or events happening in places in where they travel, which probably differ from the local people. Myself is one of them and has experienced a lot in Glasgow since my stepping in the land in September, 2017, mingled with my laughs, tears, happiness, sadness, worries and even fears. My design comes from stories which must be told. These stories take the form of montages which have happened in many places in the city from where a lot of generation lines produced and projected to the site surrounding by severa l churches and one synagogue as main landmarks, which symbolize the very early travellers in the history. My design, or my story starts from here

UNDERGRADUATE THESIS

LIJIANG ARCHITECT COMMUNITY


Film plays an important role in mediating the real and fantastic world, allowing a place where the director can shape his or her thought into a visible thing, which would even become a base as architectural design. This project is an experimental study which explore a design method between film and life. This project responds to this idea, initiated by directing a 5 min microfilm in lijiang, the old town, which displays a living experience in a living way, consisting of a series of montages on a timeline, helping to find a logistic clue in order to inspiring this Master Plan

THE TOURISM AND COMMUNITY CENTER OF SONGTANG VILLAGE Team Chief: Yanni Su Team: Jiayu Cen Adviser: Pei Gan


Layout

Analysis of Evolvement In Shape

The project is located in Songtang, Xiqiao, Nanhai District, Guangdong Province, one of the most beautiful village near the famous tourist attarction-Xiqiao Mountain, in a profound culture and long historical heritage. The village has been built around Moon Pool, with a great advantage to tourism. However, as an traditional village, here is now facing with a problem that the old buildings become hardly to satisfy modern life. Thus, they might ruined. In order to preserving these old buildings , new functions are bestowed- tourism and others which will make the original residence area become an attractive scenic spot with more complicated activities happening here. An area called “Guixiang Fang� , facing Moon Pool on the western south and leaning to a little hill called Datang hill on the eastern north, had been chosen. There is a travel center in the proposal which serves for tourists and residents around. The whole building is designed in a nomadic space generated from waterfront to the hillside all through lanes in a net formation erected over the historical buildings without causing any damage to them. Moreover, it can able to satisfy entertainment needs for tourists and local residents. The modern and tradition here can mutually form a substitution in reverse to generate a topological layout. Hopefully, this proposal could be an experimental solution in historical renewal which has been bewildering people in a country with a bundle of historical remains which are in a recession. Topology

Plans of main part


Through a net system extending on all sides to overlap the original texture of the village, thus to cause an upheaval of the original value existing. Also, the original functions have already been altered through this process by increasing complication on both functions and circulations. The new building attaches to the old ones, intertwine self with them and transfer it as a part of the whole surroundings.

Partial explorsion drawing

Concept: The building consists of three parts in total and with five main functions included: the tourist center on the Moon Pond, the central part mingled with village buildings functioning as bars on the fourth floor, studios and workshops on the third floor and a traveling corridor on the second floor, and a community center attaching to the side of hill serving for local residents. Most spaces of the third and forth floor are made for recreation, consisting of bars such as tea bars, coffee bars, coffee bars and etc. All parts are connected vertically by flights of stairs easy to be reached If it has occasionally come to one’s mind wanna to be on another floor while he is taking a stroll along the corridors. In particular, each of the stairs lead to a different room. What’s more, the rooms are disconnected. More often than not, people do not move in a fixed route and they would wonder among corridors. So, it forms a nomadic way of space which can blur the boundaries between the interior and exterior.


ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN IN PHYSICAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL SPACE

THE SOLITUDE HOSPITAL


“Hospital is life” is definitely right. I have been hospital many times and this design just happened in the period when I had a really really tough time. As a designer, I unconsciously express my emotion and feeling through my design work. To be honesty, I hate hospital, but we need it also, so I make it for fun. Solitude is tough but beneficial to one’s life, like a storm which always force us to think about life. In this project, I am trying to gain inspiration from the painting of Piet Cornelies Mondrian, making the clinic room into many little cubes , which looks like many eyes from outside. Seems terrible, isn’t? I managed to let people feel lost, confused like in a maze. Maybe when your are lost and in solitude, suffering illness or the pain that people you beloved are tortued by the disease, you will start to think about what is life. If you try, yes! That is life and life in a hospital.

寺廟與齋菜飲食文化坊設計

閙巿一禅境,白壁聞梵音。 尘囂入净地,蓮池飛梁映。 渡仙橋上行,重門聽鐘磬。 灰瓦映紅栅,寳殿尘氛净。 迴廊伴方庭,离相現祥雲。 朗朗頌經聲,六道輪迴停。 北厢有坊徑,鋪鋪斋飯薰。 盡处有高塔,便是功德林。 登塔鳥嚶嚶,浮屠眺瀚星。 世間何煩囂,悠悠满目惊。 五峰暮色盡,山寺晚鐘清。 終将歸尘土,遁入解脱林。

This is a part of urban design for the development of Bitang, a mixed use area in a central part of city, which intends to reform and optimize that area into a city complex consisting of commercial, residential and tourist utilities. This project is located in the northern area in the master plan, divided into three parts: a buddhist temple, a commercial development and a tower. There is a funeral home plus Crematorium on the west of the site up on a small hill. In China, funeral and related things are a taboo in the daily life that will result in bad fortune on business and other activities and even cast a shadow to the adjacent neighborhood. To resolve this problem, the temple will play a role to transform this negativeness into positiveness as a way of condolence of “spirits” and even a purification and comfort of souls.

Heterogeneity


To serve for this, a commercial complex is attached for selling religious and funeral ceremony pieces and serving vegetarian dinners and teas which also serves as a religional and spiritual place for the public, and has also changed the bad state of business around. The commercial part takes the shape of a traditional town divided into small blocks by streets and lanes perpendicularly. And the tower comes up as an observatory and landmark in the area. This project creates a landscape for all the people who want to be bathed in an enlightenment and inspiration, recreated in commercial attempts at the same time, and shaped by varied combination forms between indoor and outdoor which mediate the physical and spiritual world.


RESIDENTIAL COMPLEX AND COMMUNITY RESEARCH Team Chief: Yanni Su Team: Jiayu Cen, Jianzhao Zhu


People who live in the residential buildings in high density usually lack of communication among them and even hardly have chances to meet with neighbors, which lead to indifference ,loneliness and boring to some extent . To solve this problem, the design tries to explore a new form of residential complex, expecting to raise the value of "share" .


We introduce a connection between neighbors-a living unit involving three stories, each centered with a court penetrated with three-dimensional stair bridges linking different floors in order to uplift occasions for inhabitants to meet with each other, suggesting a different living style and change for the people in a metropolitan situation. Also, people will easily have fun in such a building to turn the original monotonous living chambers into rich and active stages where residents share common space to plant vegetables and other plants to develop a sense of "share", so as to improve relationship in a common sense and also appreciating a sense intervening a place instead of separation as the usual. Moreover, places decorated with planting also enjoy a benefit to the natural ventilation to make a building breathe.

Layout

My friends asked me to design a house for her family and then I invited my teacher, Mr. Gan, the director of gapSarchi where I am workingďźŒto work together. In the process, we visit my friend's home several times. Her family includes 3 persons: her, her husband and her 3- years old boy, and besides, she hopes she would have another child in the future. We found the site of her future house is close to the nature though in a village, plus, they can swim in the river to cross a road on the west and there is a big pond on the east from where they can enjoy a great view from the future house. In this case, we apply some rules of Feng Shui (Geomantic Omen) since my friend has such a kind of interest which tells the western side being closed up to prevent evils in and the eastern side being opened up in order to sucking in fortune. The altitude change of terrain has created a possibility of different height layout for all floors which are arranged according to a jumping way pivoted to a central yard to creat an interesting continuous space composing all the activities in the family in a consistent whole. To imagine the mom would be watching the boy's playing toys in the game room while she is cooking, and the boy would immediately feel hungry as soon as he smells the odor of the cooking food at the same time while dad is working hard to make some gifts in the workshop, that will become some positive influences to each other. We hope this project will give my friend's family warmth and happy daily life!
