Portfolio of Chuyi Yin COLLECTION OF WORKS FROM 2014 - 2018


CHUYI YIN DESIGN IS LIFE

I am as the logo, in which the character was used to describe someone who is looking for difficulties. While from my perspective, it means looking for innovation and do not give up even when challenging. Moreover, it is the same word for craftsmanship, the spirit of which is valuable nowadays. Besides, it contains my initials CYY. Whenever there is action there is Creative Thinking embedded.

LOVE NATURE AND NATURE WILL LOVE YOU BACK

I would like to bring growing ability in ecological design which has the goal of creating a sustainable world. This builds on the training and experience in Art & Design. I am a Designer who integrates Art and Ecology.

READY FOR CHALLENGES

I am passionate about the power of design regarding both psychological opinion and environmental issues. I am also interested in projects of different topics and scales from rural area to urban area. In this portfolio, you may view process of learning, thinking and synthesizing during my study. I start by my latest projects which combine all the skills in synthesis.

This program is a central park located at Jiashan, Zhejiang province on a site surrounded by high-density buildings. Designer incorporates the agricultural strategy of local crop rotation and low maintenance meadows along the river. Elevated floating pedestrian paths, platforms, and pavilions create a visual frame for this cultivated land and natural features. Besides, cultural patterns are preserved as the spine which indicates the textile history of the place. Together, the park would be a welcoming public space that value the culture and changes of urbanization from a Watertown Village to a modern city.

02 PLANTS TALK

PUBLIC GARDEN DESIGN FOR DEQUINDRE CUT GREENWAY Time: Winter 2018 Instructor: MaryCarol Hunter Location: Detriot /Michigan Size: 1.5 acres Category: Urban Ecological Planting Design / Individual Work

Welcome to the Plants Talk! You will get inspired, enjoy and love this place and the city. Detroit as a legacy city is under renovation, during when a lot of sparkling ideas happens. The Dequindre Cut Greenway project offers stage for those ideas. This is a civic engagement project that use the Matrix Planting methods of planting design, a complex but exciting approach to design that captivateds the public through aesthetic engagement while providing psychological and ecosystem services.


Location

Field of Interest

Dequindre Cut is the main greenway that links all the neighborhoods to the East Riverfront. It is within 1.5 miles of most landmarks and place of interest. It helps the city transfer into a more green and public welcome city by enhancing the public transportation , making place walkable and bikable.

Walking along the Phase two of Dequindre Cut, from south part to the north, you might feel the spacial change a lot. Changing from sense of enclosure by high industrial buildings to the feeling of surrounded by lower level plants while the buildings are stepping away. At the same time, the chrips from both insects and birds begin to be a background sound match with the murals created by artists and children from nearby school and neighborhoods. Be careful, bikers are passing by!

Site Plan

Saginaw Forest is used by the general public for park purposes while at the same time providing space for teaching and research opportunities for SEAS. T h e d e s i g n i d e a s ta r t s w i t h t h e a n a l y s i s of the original geological structure which i s t h e r e m a i n s o f t h e r e t r e a t e d g l a c i e r. The landform becomes study sample. The design tends to amplify the sense of layers of soil. All the landscape and structure would help build the atmosphere to show respect to the natural history here. The firepit area is just like a pebble along the kame, the kettle lake, and the terminal moraine.

08 BALLOON 07 INTERACTIVE INSTALLATION DESIGN FOR PARKING DAY BALLOON depict the impact human's behavior have on nature world. The design trys to inspire people to think about the relationship between us and the nature environment and also the city with interactive installations.

Originating in San Francisco 2005, Park(ing) Day has transfo rmed into a wo rldwide event that celebrates community engagement and urban transformation of reclaiming grey infrastructure.

The installations represent various local designers and debut during the Design Crawl at the Fisher Building. They will feature innovative designs that highlight flexible open spaces that engage the community through interactive experiences.

MESSAGE BOARD

GUESS RIDDLE

SEATINGS AND CEILING

You can leave message about their feelings on recycled plates. We recycled 150 standard paper plates which have taken 1-2 years of growth for a tree.

There are riddles for you and friends to have a try. Remember, no peeking at the back. All about Detroit's fun facts that offered more interactive chances and cultural connection.

The volume of air that every 44 balloon contains equal to the amount of CO2 that one car releases. Feel free to take the clouds with message with you and share with others.

DIGITAL MODELING

Digitizing is a way for quantization. With the idea of randomization and also create a sense of beauty, I conduct the logic and visualize it with Rhino and Grasshopper. This process also helps prevent the waste of material.

BALLOON is a practice of recycling, reuse and evoke. It is also an experiment for all the designers to record the chemical reactions between human and nature.
