Foreword

From my perspective, my four-year learning journey of architecture has offered me a unique way to scrutinize Chinese society and also myself. Almost all architectural structures are under the influence of technology, aesthetics, philosophy and social ideology of the time while the architect digests and translate this information into a complex work. Modern architecture is the one that exert great influence on me. As Marx put it, "All that is solid melts into air." In the scope of modern architecture, everything complicated is transformed into purity, simplicity and efficiency. At the same time, the process of creating architecture is also a process of self-introspect and self-expression from different dimensions. My understanding of Architecture in TU Delft began with my first formal design course which is challenging in terms of how to take the first step. Fortunately, my advisor of this course, who graduated from the department of architecture at TU Delft, explained to me about his works at school and at work. What impressed me is that most works of him have a good balance between site analysis, theories, cultural background and practice and implement them with rigorous spatial generation logic. His teaching had a great influence on my later design strategy. In later classes, I have put in great effort so as to achieve the same. In my opinion, the main teaching idea of balancing theory and practice is the reason why TU Delft attracts me. For me, all existing problems and issues in Chinese society may serve as inspirations to start a project. First, Chinese housing has become a serious problem as huge population flood into cities. In this case, I think commercial housing which used to be the mainstream should be eliminated. Housing that considered humanities should be valued to adapt to the ongoing problems and those that may arise in the future. Second, I am looking forward to building a more systematic understanding toward architecture engineering. In China, many people in cities choose to go to "Agritainment", a unique activity, to experience farming during their holidays. This is an expression of the Chinese people's longing for rusticity. However, the existing farmhouse is not ideal in architecture and planning, which greatly affects the customer’s experience and the economic benefits of farmhouse. I think architecture engineering can help farmhouses complete a huge upgrade while people can experience rusticity in environment friendly and invigorating spaces. During the long lasting final year project, I had the opportunity to design a project to describe a daily absurdity, as the brief came from the textual and ideological research of a fantastic novel - ‘Five Spice Street’ written by Canxue. For me, the significance of this project does not solely lie in designing a complete and practical project, but more importantly, it helps me rethink what a modern city in China should look like in the future.

New Threshold to Old Suzhou According to recent research, a sign that clearly indicates China’s economic advance is the rate of growth of the urban population. Urban growth has been one of the most important aspects of China’s development over the past 30 years. By 2030, urban dwellers are expected to rise to 75%. This rapid rise brings along major challenges for architects and planners: new houses, infrastructures, water, food and jobs, as well as rising pollution and social inequality issues. The main objective for students will be to investigate the process of generating “new housing models” with particular attention to typological solutions, taking into consideration different criteria such as culture, environment, economic and tradition in order to guarantee highquality and responsible living. Influenced by policies and history, the main type of dwelling in China is commercial dwelling held by the real estate. Most of them are composed by similar mode of typologies and circulation. Although they brought neat and efficient life to people, in some way they destroyed the traditional morphology and city landscape especially in old city such as Suzhou. In this project, I extract some authentic space elements – ‘threshold space’ in Suzhou as my design concept and space strategy. I hope it can bring tradition life style back to people in Suzhou but also keep the efficiency and cleaning of modern life. New City

Old Town

The fragment courtyard spaces in ancient town in Suzhou is the main concept and strategy of this housing project. It inspired me of how Chinese people understand and apply space in a traditional way. Inheriting this kind of ability in form of modern is the maintarget of this project.

Research Direction

During the site visit, I found that people will define this secondary transition space as an important communication which is different from western countries. Then I pick these kind of space as my research subjects to figure out the possibility to translate them into my project. 150m*150m

"Hanging Edge"

The threshold space located between house and street, silence and noisy. This offered a void, poetic time in a rigid, repeating place.

"Gardening Edge"

Although quality of the threshold space here is unsatisfied, it still offered a temporary leisure threshold for lost cost income people around.

"Colonnade Edge"

This threshold are both barrier for community and connecting commercial space for it. The shops served for local community and visitors.

"Stocking Edge"

Compact layout without transition fuction

Between house & house 屋

Courtyard for transition and spontaneous activity

The threshold space located between buiding and building , community and community which became a "private square" space for residents.

Based on the social context in China, it is neccessary to satisfied different requirements of modern people. For instance, most of Chinese parents do not have time to take care of their children which lead to grandparents come to live together with them to help those busy parents. I analyze their activities in terms of privacy level and requency. Then, I classify the spontaneous behaviors as threshold space in different scale like family, cluster and community. It become both partition and connection. 人

Typology generation

Based on the concept of threshold space between different types of public space, I draw the diagram on left to define relationship between indibidual, couple, family, community and public. According to this, I try to transfer these outcomes to space. The spaces defined as threshold were designed into relevant flexible constructional elements. Then, these elements will insert into

four basements with different size according to requirements. For example, the threshold could be study room between 2 kids or couple and kids which become a square for them. Also, the threshold could be kitchen between family and neighbourhood which connect these space. These element, together with micro-square in each floor, returning Chinese traditional space pattern in moern residential building.

To combine these typologies, I also learned from space in old town. In this project, 3 floors are organized as a small community and the elevator will only stop at the middle floor. This could help to strengthen the communication between neighborhoods. Also, there are small and trivial spaces leave between each home which could be freely designed by residents. Those different scales of threshold space can bring tradition to residents and also keep an efficient life.

Jing'An District - The oldest part in Shanghai

Blocks are one of the most essential elements of any built environment. Surrounded by streets, their morphology, sizes and characteristics play a fundamental role in defining the relationship between ratios of inside and outside, open and close, public and private, new and old, close and far. They can have different degrees of strictness or permissiveness in the way in which they shape our gaze or allow different buildings to interact with each other. However, in China, blocks seems to be subordinated to a rigorous form of urban organization-gated communities and large commercial complex.Their scale, layout and top-down implementation seem to have created the opposite, and their sense of neighborhood and community are far lower than those found in more traditional Chinese ways of planning like the one’s seen in Beijing’s Hutong, Shanghai’s Longtang and Suzhou’s old town.

At the end of the 2018, I had the honor of being invited to design a professional project individually. The client required a residential house with wood structure and they want to move to it after they retire from work. Also, they want to keep some traditional and old form from the previous building. Generally, the rarget is to organize the layout according to clients life and designing a modern residential house with tradional memory for them.

In this project, I kept the traditional pitched roof in a new and practical way. Also, I kept some traditional symbol of Hunan residential house on the facade and structure which gives a familiar sense of old memory. Although this project is small and simple, it taught me a lot of differences between professional profect and academic project.

Firstly, the project will be used as home after the clients getting retired. So I tried to create more 'practical' functions for them to have more activities during their leisure time (Diagram). Also, the site got a mountain at the south side which means the sunshine is not enough for this project. Therefore, I set the balcony at west and have a doubleheight space linked whith it to transmit more heat in to the house. Additionally, better ventilation.

'Five Spice Street is one of the most astonishing novels of the past twenty years. Exploring the collective consciousness of this little street of ordinary people, Can Xue penetrates the deepest existential anxieties of the present day—whether in China or in the West—where the inevitable impermanence of identity struggles with the narrative within which identity must compose itself.'

The novel “Five Spice Street” revolves around its main character Madam X, or rather, it revolves around the incapacity to define who or what Madam X is. There are many stories about Madam X. Most likely she is a person, but maybe she is not. She is the site of endless suspicion, but also of love and admiration. She is the projection of a community’s dreams and fears, while at the same time responding to this very community’s desire to frame these dreams and fears in understandable narratives. She is reported to be the weirdest

person on the street, accused of what no one dares to speak about, and betrayed until she is honored as a visionary who “represents a society of the future”, and she is elected representative of the street. Shortly after this, her house collapses, and whether or not it is symbolic of the collapse of the society and the times that created the story of Madam X, it is an opportunity for a new house – one that houses the “society of the future”. This is the rebirth of the future.

The Site Map

“A House for Madam X” – as the brief is entitled – sets the task for an architectural project that will shelter the life of a community. For a site in Shanghai on the banks of Suzhou River, students will develop new methodologies to explore the possibilities of architecture as a stage from which social communication can merge in its most poetic forms. Working on a site on the banks of Suzhou River in Shanghai, this brief encourages students to rethink Architecture in China and its relation to individuals, society, and the future. In this project, I tried to found design concept from Five Spice Street in terms of two dimensions which is literature skill and philosophy in it. Firstly, the author used a lot of metaphors to indicate her purport of how to being an individual. She used authentic Chinese semiology to replaced daily life that people are familiar with which will re-make the daily life become absurd. She want to let Chinese people to rethink about our society, about culture and about ourselves through this way. Secondly, she wrote amount of debate to narrate a spurious affair in the Five Spice Street. It is really a way to describe because no one will do a serious debate for an affair in real life. This tell readers

Site visit that the affair is must be not just an affair. She gave a meaning of it. Additionally, Canxue’s philosophy also rooted in her writing. Different from western philosophy which gives the supreme position for intelligence, Canxue thinks that the modern Chinese philosophy sho u ld b e compos ed of both intelligence, emotion and intuition, For example, she regarded the literary creation as part of her daily life which had an equal status as doing laundry, eating, exercising and sleeping. In general, other authors always think wiring is kind of process of thinking and it is an outcome of intelligence. How about architecture? Generally, architecture is always experienced by body rather than intelligence. Therefore, I want to design an architecture that people could ‘read’ by their mind rather than body. In this case, I want to create an unfamiliar daily life scene to help people know our city and our architecture in another way. For me, the significance of this project lies not only in designing a perfect, comfortable and practical building, but more importantly, it helps me to rethink what kind of city could be called unique modern Chinese city.

Questioning Space

The very first thing that I need to do to question the meaning of each daily life space. It is necessary to figure out the relationship between space and behavior, production and place. Once I get the code behinde them, the meaningness and usefulness should be annihilated by new architectural language. In this page, I mapped a real simplified life in a modern Chinese city, and you can see a normal life of most Chinese people. This is thing that the project want to change. 2015 - 2019|RIBA Part 1 ARCHITECTURE|First Class Honor

According to the new space model for each function, I create another architectural language to make this small space became more unfamiliar to people. Although they do not look like conventional architectures, I think they already have the necessary meaning of architecture which is meaningful space. It aimed to use useless space to help visitors to rethink things happened in our daily life, to question the city, to question the architecture, to question the society.
