CONTENTS How the architecture interacts with environmental context and creates spatail variaty are the main idea of my design in this portflio. I focus on the exploration of space which interacts with the public and the micro-climate to pursue the living quality and the atmosphere that the architecture can embrace. I also emphasize the issue between the private and the public. The various public spaces can promote the community development. The private extensive space which can be creatively expressed by residents to either garden, create an informal economic area, and representing own culture can also build the sense of place. In the second part of this protfolio, the narrative photography presents participatory design which is also the primary idea in my past working experience. Through the participatory design, people can narrate their own life story depending on oneâ€™s situatedness to evoke the collective memory. The design is for the residents and the place context with the imagination of the future.

[HOUSE C] The project is inspired by the existing tree on the site of NYC. The tree becomes a core part of forming the courtyard shape and program of the spatial arrangment between public and private, but also has significant impact on the microclimate.

[RINARI INDUSTRIAL DEVELOPMENT CENTER] The design objective was to exhibit the traditional art and develop cultural and creative industries of the nearby tribes with the traditional housing typology, black slate. In traditional life, the courtyard is the important place for grain drying, grass weaving, and carving. It is the place used for private and public activities. The courtyard house becomes the basic form of this project. The traditional material, slate, also is used in the construction.

[IMMERSIVE CLOUD] The intension is to serve both as a medium for providing immersive experiences as well as a platform for fostering social interactions. With the stainless steel disks floating on top of a forest of thin columns, the surrounding environment including the trees, people, and sky are reflected, distorted, and multiplied before the eyes.

[ORGANIC FENCE] The project emphasizes the conversion of the typical NYCHA fenced in campus into a positive concept of organic being and creative promotion its residents. Based on the daily life pattern with such fences, this project introduces the concept of programing the fence and the fenceâ€™s characteristics of defining the boundary between public and private areas.

The private garden area is not only for cultivating purposes, but can also become an extensive area in which people can create and design.

[ORGANIC FENCE] Each residential unit design in this project, has its own private garden that is serviced by the top of the unit below it. The private garden area is not only for cultivating purposes, but can also become an extensive area in which people can create and design.
[TOPO-SKIN FACADE] The proposed faรงade integrates topologically optimized structural framing and membrane based dynamic insulation skin. The topology optimization ensures that the volume and weight of the steel framing are minimized without compromising in structural performance. The multi-layered ETFE membrane which is extremely lightweight, durable, and transparent, serve as an alternative to the traditional aluminum and glass cladding system. The air layers between each layer functions as thermal insulation which can be dynamically adjusted by the degree of inflation.
Thermal insulation controlling through inflation and deflation
Context & Shadow analysis This Building is uniquely situated on the south-west side of the urban areas in NY. According to the dry-bulb temperature and relative humidity analysis, 40% of the year could be naturally ventilated or heated. To block the direct wind flow from the river side, new types of facade system and their operation schedule will be suggested.

[POP-UP HABITAT] The design emphasizes stacking the shipping containers and having the upward or horizontal expansion for additional living space. It overcomes the narrow footprint of the shipping container and making the space more flexible.
The basic idea is to extend vertically or horizontally for an extra space and serve the small family. In addition, we stack the containers for wide and flexible space.
type A: the bedroom space is extended upwards to accommodate a living space beneath
type B : extending sideway to overcome the narrow space
type C : vertically stacked containers, upper level with a garden and a deck extending outwards
CONTAINER DESIGN Final list of The Go Beyond: International Design + Engineering Competition/ Summer 2016 Collaboration with Yuchi Kuo, Daekwon Park
The design consists of the corrugated steel exterior cladding and structural insulated panel interior wall system. This interior system is configured as rigid thermal insulation sandwiched between structural wood panels. This assembly eliminates thermal bridging and reduce air and moisture infiltration.
[POP-UP HABITAT] The proposed service modules functions not only as mechanical, electrical and plumbing distribution room but also as semi-outdoor community space. Solar panels are integrated with the faรงade of the service module for electricity generation and rainwater is collected and filtered for irrigating the community gardens.
Service container is the semi-outdoor community space for 6-8 units. It collects the clear energy and recycle facilities and pipes work. In addition, each habitat units has its own compact heating, ventilating, air conditioning and refrigeration system (i.e. decentralized HVAC&R) and the service units supply and collect energy and waste to and from the units.
CONTAINER DESIGN The project combines the efficiency of the kit-of-parts approach with the flexibility of the pop-out concept. The majority of the components from the original shipping container are creatively repurposed and redesigned to add value to the habitat units.
NARRATIVE PHOTOGRAPHY Participatory design is the main idea of my design in my past working experience. Some following photos convey the significant issues of the desgin projects. Participatory design encourages not only architect but also the residents could join the design process. When considering the context in a place, theresidents always know more local life experience and social relation than architect. This methodology is trying to show the space of representationfromresidentsâ€™ perspectivesby narrative process with various media during the interview and meeting. Furthermore, people could be evoked the past or perceive others situation related tospatial experience and even let people come to gather to face the issues through narrative process with diverse groups. As an architect, transforming the representations of space from residents into the actual spaceis the professional practice.

In this curriculum of traditional shack building, elders were teachers to tell a story about family. Every building step was done according to the experience from the elders or on-site observation without design drawing, and kids and the youth participated in the entire process and learned from it. When tribal residents relocated to the new site, Rinari, after typhoon Morakot, we began the education project to let tribal residents participate in maintaining their indigenous culture resulted from families’ affections and respect for nature. I organized the curriculum team and participated in shack design, construction, and process recording. These records became the teaching materials for learners in the future.

Traditional Shack Construction ‘Architecture Begins from One’s Desire to Protect Another’
Ritual for blessing The parents came here with respect and awe toward the ancestral spirits and all lives on this piece of land. Site selection was based on human interaction with the nature.
Why and for Whom do I need these materials? Everything matters from construction materials to their sizes and needs. Considered the shape of each log when using them as the columns, Elder said,“Each piece of wood has its own unique shape and curve.”
Cherishing the resource “Each piece is different – you might find some one too short to work on its own, then you need to combine it with another piece.”
Being the Shielding Shadow for Them “My heart aches at the sight of my beloved ones enduring the torching sun. I have to hurry, hurry to their side and shield away the unbearable heat.”
Making Home More Comfortable The parents spread bunches of silver grass on the rooftop and walls, and covered them with different slates. The slates were spread on the ground. The parents also built the fireplace and a bed inside.
Warming Up the Shack for the Family They opened a window on the wall next to the bed, so the sun could shine in and warm up the shack.
