SPHERE/LABYRINTH

ARTISTS' HOME

As we all know, inspiration is very important for an artist. But where does it come from? I think there are two ways: from the surrounding objects that stimulate the thinking, and communication with the others. Thus, this time, I would like to use A KIND OF APPARATUS, CORRIDOR, through discussing whether the corridors are necessary any more, to design a residence for artists which can provide a inspiration enlightenment as well as a special public area for them to communicate.

They often communicate with others. There are often some visitors, communicating with each other will promote their design inspiration and specific implementation. Of course, they need to do physical exercise regularly. After all, working without sports can harm their health. They often watch movies to relax themselves.

Flat-share young artists usually lives alone or two of them rent an apartment together. They spend most of their time designing and drawing, day and night. Sometimes they need a huge desk for their pieces of drawings. Sometimes they have to make models, so the house should be set up a spacious and maybe public area to place the models. They also need a piece of wall to show their works, which can help them to reflect on their own design process, progress and deficiency.

CORRIDOR DEVELOPMENT HISTORY In the early years, the building consisted of a living space between two yards. When the corridor first appeared in the mid 17th century, it was only used to distinguish between the two systems of the master and servants' life and then became the efficient traffic streamline for the servants. In the late 19th century, with the influx of the working class, the corridor was used to split the different families and maintain the health environment. Later, the corridor existed in an extremely straightforward way and generated several enlarged nodes. However, after that, architects began to rethink and look for the oppotunities to interact, thus mixed the office and corridor space. In the late 20th century, the high-rise office building completely removed the corridor. The plan only consisted of the core tube and the public office space to provide an open communicating space for people.

Some corridors service only for circulation. CIRCULATION MULTIPLE ACTIVITIES Actually, corridor can offer as much functions as we imagine.

From my own perspective, the corridor should service for more than one person, which means the more people in the area, the more necessary the corridor is. Thus, the private living space does not need a corridor. However, as the development of the modern social life, the specified traffic function is not necessary any more. In the public space, the nature of the corridor should be blurred so that it can lead to more possibilities. Corridor should exist for more multiple functions, such as communication, exhibition and entertainment. Therefore, the corridor space will not be linear. It may have ambiguous shape and boundary. The corridor is considered to provide various functions for the certain peopel for particular occupation as well as surprises and expectations.

UNIT AXONOMETRIC

Inside the unit, the curve walls make a flowing space. The rooms are arranged according to the function analysis on the left. Both of the artists can see the curve glass wall when working.The exhibition hall on the first floor has a huge window that can be seen from the outside thus form a great place for the artists to show their own work and visit others' in the same time.

Designing is the most important part of an artist's daily life, thus the other functions are directly connected to the working area without corridors. It can help them lead an efficient life. There are two main routes: the working and guests route and the route for daily life which contains a spiral stairs and two ladders to save the space.

UNIT COMBINATION The project is located in a rectangular block adjacent to Beijing Sixth Ring Road and a river. The low plot ratio provides the possibility of such an unrestrained and ideal artists' house. The ground floor is the main exhibition and communication place where the exhibition hall of every unit are public and people can do sports there as well. It uses the pool for natural lighting. The platform floor has various yards with different views so that people can find their favourite place to think and chat with others. The roof floor has entrances for every unit. People can go upstairs and enter the private space directly.

FUNCTION

Through the variation element of the unit, different combination can lead people to different routes and finally arrived at the public places. There are clear boundaries between the indoor space of the units and the outside corridors. Nodes of the corridors provide many functions for artists living here, such as exhibition, sports, thinking and chatting.

CREATIVE PARADISE I wish the artists living here can always find their inspiration space,sometimes maybe just a special light and shadow at certain time of a day. And see people unexpectly. There will always be artists communicating in the yards. Maybe one day an artist meets someone and finds that their thoughts are so alike thus hold a small exhibition together in the shared exhibition hall and become super partners.Anyway, the artists can think and find their developing orientation and see the residence as their creating wonderland. The section below shows the various corridors space interior and exterior which is filled with pink. The arrangement and combination of the units and the hemispherical walls form the retractable space. Various corridors between the units have different elements, such as path, stairs, pool, or slide. People can walk on the roof and enter their house so that this forms the communication of the sight line from three different heights. In addition, we can also see the semi-open exhibition area on the ground. The ladders, spherical glass and curved walls of the units can give the artists more fun in the daily life and work time.

YOUTH PALACE

Youth palace, regarded as the force of a certain area, provides young people with a rich space and streamline so that they can find themselves in the various space and activities, leave a good childhood memory, as well as improve their aesthetic. Since it is a triangle block, three angles are dramatically divided into two smaller angles each to strengthen the visual contradiction and stimulate the young people's individuality and reverse thinking. There are three volumes connected by an atrium, which seems like mechannical splicing and lead to spatial fluigity.

In addition, we can see a layer of glass wall inside the layer of brick wall. Therefore, people can experience the space between the doublelayered walls under the changing lights and shadows. I intend to create a variety of different feelings in a limited space so that young people can feel the energy and live with a positive attitude.

Stadium, regarded as the landmark of the city, often means huge scale and outstanding form, but as is often the case, little attention is paid to its relationship with the residents around. As a consequence, many are designed only for mega events, which leads to very low frequency in every day use. Thus, this time, I try to explore THE stadium and lead a healthier life.

DESIGN DESCRIPTION

INSPIRATION INTENTION

This project is located at the east of Suzhou Stadium. The west and north side arterial roads bring most people. Meanwhile the large amount of residentials and greenland indicate that there ought to be a nice place for the citizens to do physical exercises every day rather than just watching games on weekends.

The automobile wheel's plan design can be seen as a steady and well balanced ring structure. Take the automobile wheels as an inspiration,according to the number of the branches, using the whole branch connection or from a certain point of bifurcation, to analysis the force and select the most stable type of the structure.

The stadium intends to attract people as many as during the mega events. There are three major areas for development and utilization —— junction of interior and exterior space, interesting space among the roof structure, and the stands and spacious home ground.

The bearing cable is the main force structure, while the balance cable is used as a connection.

Deform the pressure ring based on the designed shape to make the roof seem more dynamic.

Light Membrane Structure —— covering the truss structure to reduce load.

Form triangular truss since triangular is the most stable geometry.

Strengthen the structure by connecting radial steel purlin with the lateral connection.

ETFE Membrane —— change the shape according to the direction of the sunlight.

Every two columns are connected with a radial beam as the base of the connection between the roof structure and the outer structure.

Strength the connection by combining the beam and column into a whole and reinforce the horizontal contact.

ROOF STRUCTURE

Since the membranes above the roof structure are all translucent, the real main ground interior will be filled with affluent light and shadow changes. It provides an ideal public place for the residents to take part in various activities in the daily life.

The shelter of the platform uses triangular steel bracket which is stable and concise. It provides people with more spacious space. Twist with the whole body to a certain orientation.

The outer and inner circle columns fold inward from the top to the bottom, making the volume more light and flexible. People walking around the platform will have different spatial experience.

From God's point of view, the stadium, along with its surroundings, is very aesthetic. In fact, it is a public garden hinge, not only to provide a good place for the residents around, but also to make itself an impressive landmark. It gives people the impression of Suzhou that is in line with the gentle beauty.

Urban design should no longer be the architect or urban planner's subjective creation. They should explore the natural and historical conditions and the characteristics of each city. Organize and use them to make every city have its own identity. ——Image of the City, Keivn Lynch For a new site, how to make it fully intergrated into the original land, at the same time have its own identities? I define the FIVE proposed by Keivn Lynch to connect the new and old lands so that form an identifiable and logically new area.

The sea reclamation project started since 2005. It aims to build a new urban center in an unexplored area named Estuary. The site is 62.3 hectares with a river dividing the site into two parts. The nearest urban main road is beside the northwest corner of the site. There is also a mountain which is the highest point of the whole site. The area is considered to contain a variety of functions, such as residence, central business district, shopping mall, exhibition building, resort hotel and so on.

Paths and the central green belt are continuations of the texture of original block. The green belt that right in front of the bay serves a large scope of citizens as well as connecting the sight from the inland to the sea. Nodes are evenly distributed in the site as the connection and conversion of the function and structure, in the same time make the road rich in variation.

SITE ANALYSIS inshore

There are many high-density residence nearby. Although mountains and coastal vegetation occupy large areas, there is no planned pedestrian landscape system so that people cannot relax and react to the sea conveniently and directly. The roads should be replanned to be more clear and logical. In addition, lack of large-scale central business district makes the region difficult to become a prosperous central part of the city. A landmark is needed to give the area strong identification from the view of the sea.

Here are perspectives of the way when people walking along one of the paths. The first path is the main road of the area. It mainly services for traffic and connects the main districts and functions. The second chosen path is the road parallel to the river. It passes through the huge landscape, holds many activities, and shows the contrast between the slow life in the residence and the fast life in the business and commercial center. The last path is the walkway from mountain to the sea. It passes many important nodes and districts so that provides a way for people to have a walk after meal and keep healthy.

A Here marks the entry into the city. The boundary of the STREET is enclosed. The space between buildings along the street attracts people to walk in. From the residence in the south, people walk from narrow street to an open district. The corridor makes the PATH have a sense of place which connect the whole community together.

Entering the relatively enclosed expressway. The residence on the left is quiet and alignment while the central business DISTRICT on the right is busy and prosperous. It is the EDGE between the high-grade residence and the mountain. People can do morning exercises and other activities in this area. The quiet environment reminds people to enjoy their life.

The landscape is a blur boundary between the residence and the commercial center. It also provides an open district for entertainment and brings energy to the entire area.

B

The buildings and paths on the other side of the river have a sense of axis. It is a NODE on the river which leads people to go ahead and look to both sides. They can also interact with water.

C

The broken line PATH improves the privacy of the residence as well as the interest. It comes from the mountain and lead to the sea. People can go through the path but cannot see the end which is same as the Chinese gardens.

The path will go through the central business DISTRICT Different heights of the path lead to different views. It is a wonderful place for office workers to relax and get some fresh air.

It is the transition of the quiet landscape and big commercial centers. People living in the residence pass by every morning so the space under eaves provides breakfast for them. The glass roof ahead indicates that there is a shopping mall.

In the end, people walk to the EDGE of the land, looking to the sea and enjoy a beautiful view.

The PATHS built on stilts provide interaction of hte sight lines and the pore allows daylight in. The space is rich and full of shadows and activities.

Hand drawing, photograpgy are means by which I allow things external to architecture to stimulate my inspiration and inform my design process. Sometimes I do some art works as a hobby to seek and improve my individual aesthetic. Dabbling in other art fields often reminds me of the aesthetic generality among them and architecture. All of the countries and places I have ever travelled to provide me with a broader horizon since the more I see, the more possibilities I can imagine.
