The Incinerator Part
The Boat House
The Incinerator and Boat House 02/2018, Venice, Italy
The Venice city is facing the problem to deal with the large quantity of trash and there will be a new incinerator station designed in Isola La Certosa. I seperate the second program which is a boat house for ISMAR and the incinerator to occupy the whole lagoon and get the space into use. In this way I create a new ship route for garbage boats to not have a negitive influence to the tourists. The whole site is devided into four parts, the building design part, the farm region connect two buildings, the forest park, and the orginal boat school. In this way, the Isola La Certosa can be an extra large area of the Venice city for both sightseeing and research.

NYPL Courtyard 09/2018, Manhattan, New York
The New York Public Library is located in 5th avenue and west 42 street, next to the bryant park. We decided to create an auditorium space at the north part of NYPL courtyard. The auditorium as interior public space is using as education and other condition, to seperate from bryant park as exterior public space. The courtyard is mainly design due to the function need, but also create a new circulation for the people go to the library. The structure design think carefully about the solution to deal with the orginal weight bearing system, and also deal with the sound and light problem as needed.

The Residential Building 09/2017, Brooklyn, New York
The residential building is based on nature and through economical pressure, collective housing often evolves into systemic and repetitive patterns. From urban to domestic scale, I tried to investigate infrastructural, programmatic and spatial vertical cores as well as the potential interstitial spaces and variations within regular patterns. The design started with the new type of micro units that can satisfy the demand of people. Severl systems to make the whole building more convenient for people to live are also added, especially the transportation system "pipes", allowed people to get whatever they want through the pipes instead of waiting for the elevators. The facade system works well in high temperature conditions.

The Hanging Platform
04/2017, Tianjin, China
This platform is located in a residential area built in the old days without any long-term perspective and scientific planning. With the increasing number of private car ownership, there are less and less area for people to relax which were used as parking space. Moreover, many cars come across the residential area for convenience which will threaten the security of the people. By using parametric design tools, I decided to design a platform hanging in the sky to separate pedestrian system from vehicle system, so that people can do activities safely and will not have any adverse effects on vehicle system. The design work also tried to solve the problem of parking which cars is much more than parking space.

Mental health problem has more potential menace than physical health
Mental health law set up by Japanese government but not work due to culture reasons
The main conflict is between mental health law and unhealthy culture
People pray to the specific KAMI to deal with the challange and get treatment mentally
Use religion to deal with the conflict and create Mental Health KAMI for this condition
Social work overtime culture let people has less personal time and need more efficient way
Mental Health Shinto Shrine 02/2019, Tokyo, Japan
The Shinto Shrine is located in Shinkoiwa station, Tokyo. With the condition of mental health problem and Japanese culture, people refused to regard mental health issue as a real problem. There is a conflict between law and culture, and this condition prevent patients get treatment from doctor and hospital. I'm using traditional religion to deal with culture, and transfer the needs of get treatment to pray for luck. In this way, people will be more positive to the mental health issue. Also the accessbility of the space and the effiency of get treatment is really important due to the work over time background. So the Shinto Shrine will help people to release their pressure and become more powerful.
