EXTRACURRICULAR WORK


1 W H I C H .W AY Fall 2018 Studio Instructor: Jennifer Birkland Individual Work

Coney Island has a long history of being the entertainment escape from Manhattan. Once it was a landscape littered with paper facades scattered with lights. A sea of attractions, woven with history entertainment and wonder. This landscape has experienced a frequent renewal, fires clearing the environment and new dreams sprouting from the ashes. The pressures on Coney Island as a development capitol to Manhattan, with housing projects and exposure to the outer bay makes is susceptible to flooding during storms, but mostly from the creek side of the island which was filled in to connection with Brooklyn. This is about a new future for Coney Island.


Dynamic Ecology - City’s in Fog

Coney Island Overview

Site Location

Historical Amusement Park

Dissecting and anticipating flows and movements of fog is one of the approach to understand the current pysical conditions of Coney Island.

Space Interlacing In Delirious New York, Rem discusses the many developments and links from Manhattan to Coney Island which drive it’s success in becoming the respite of the city. “Coney Island is forced to mutate: it must turn itself into the total opposite of Nature, It has no choice but to counteract the artificiality of the new metropolis with its own Super·Natural.”

Gallery Space The new art studios, as one of the most important element presented in the future Coney Island, are used to support Coney Island art development and also attract outcomer artist population. The area is dedicated to local art culture developement and tourism development. The dynamic of space turns the normal structure into a outdoor gallery.


In the future, sufficient green space will be provided to the communities. In addition, private space within residerntial area, studio area and commerical area will also accomondate different uses of people.

In public gallery mode, studios and residential houses could be turned into a huge ourdoor gallery. Utilized the directional function of the site to control and modefied the flows.

Residential Townhouses


Local Community Event Mode and Farmers Market will be located right next to the engine of the island. The opportunity is given to local economic development.

Large public event could be held several times per year, which intents to bring in large revenues to the local business and proliferate tourism, and also create a diverse and vibrant community.

Space Interaction

When different types of space meet, various interaction of land were created by different direction and composition of the architecture. Since houses are the major sources of population, it is chosen as the major element to est the interaction between houses and commercial are and art studio.


The New Community In the future, the commnunity in Coney Island will transform itself from a lifeless cage to a welcoming place. With sufficient green space and private space in the community, the vigor is regenerated with improved safety.


2 LAND BEYOND Fall 2017 Competition Instructor: Conner O’Shea Group Work: Yi Yang, Wei Zeng, Xia Yang, Sijia Yang, Xinyuan Lu

This project by studying the ecological infrastructure in the landscape design practice, committed to combining temporal industrial sites, cultural and historical background and the potential ecological restoration ability, giving the site based on the dynamic relationship between the natural and industrial. Mine, farmland and forest together organically as a means of repair and productive landscape, giving impetus to the development of tourism, explore a new mode of industry and provide diversified activities experience for local residents and potential.

The design take advantages on geographical topography to integrate post-industrial infrastructure with the surrounding environment and revitalize local economy through ecological and social practice.

ARCHITECTURAL FACADE


Attachment design is generated to celebrate the future tourism development of the area. The new logo is a simplification of the ecological and social based design concept. The line of mountain represents mountainous geography, and the tree represents the emphasis on ecological system balance. The frame of house represents our site as a post-industrial infrastructure which we used as an interface for ecological restoration and tourism development. The logo is embedded with a vision of designing a resilient, resistant and adaptive environment and reaching a balance between human development and healthy ecology.

“Public open space belongs to everyone and no one at once. It is a sacred space - finite and fragile. It is organized as legacy to our best and worst ideas and actions, a palimpet of conseuences.� - Professor Sears New York City is one of the most diverse cities in the world. Due to its diversity and inclusiveness, the protests in New York represent the voices of the world. The protests also covered a variety of topics, which are often international issues. The investigation examined a period dating back to 1863, the frequency and participants of protest over that time continued to grow. The protests in the city has been relatively peaceful, however, the size of protest has became a major problem. Streets and parks are the two most popular city protesting locations. The dynamics of race distribution, income level, crime rate, transportation and park distributions were among the urban factors that led to a experiment on finding the balance between public space and protests.


NYC Protestor Analysis

This investigation examined a period dating back to 1863, the frequency and participants of protest over that time continued to grow. The protests in the city has been relatively peaceful, however, the size of protest has became a major problem. There are five times when the number of the protest participants reached, and far exceeded 80,000 people. Streets and parks are the two most popular city protesting locations.

NYPD Strategy

NYC Protest History

The NYPD has adopted the techniques of pushing and squeezing, which, allows for protest demonstrations, while aiming to control the crowds and maintain traffic. Under the human-right-sensitive atmosphere, protestors in the New York City tend to use their own body as a powerful weapon against enforcement and to demonstrate their causes.


Public Protest Site Analysis

The dynamics of the city’s race distribution, income level, crime rate, transportation and park distributions demonstrate a centralized power in Manhattan, which further shows an impartible relation between the social hierarchy and race; and accessibility and population.

4 LU HU RESORT Summer 2017 Internship Company: T.R.O.P Individual Work

TROP, also called terrain + open space, is a landscape architectural design studio with a team of designers and construction supervisors. Led by Pok Kobkongsanti, who graduated from Graduate School of Design, Harvard University, Master of Landscape Architecture in Urban Design. The Luhu project is located in Sichuan, Chengdu, China. The site sits as a waterfront and two buildings designed by other architecture firms will function as office building and residential building. The team started the design at its very beginning, which is what they called ‘the concept stage’. I have drawn out several design options and after discussion with the principle designer Pok, the final plan comes out with sophisticated and comprehensive consideration and a practical form that we used it to present to our clients as the Option 2.

The Luhu project is located in Sichuan, Chengdu, China. The site sits as a waterfront and two buildings designed by other architecture firms will function as office building and residential building. We started the design at its very beginning, which is what they called ‘the concept stage’. We have drawn out several design options and after discussion with our principle designer, the final plan comes out with sophisticated and comprehensive consideration and a practical form that we used it to present to our clients as the Option 2.


Option 2 Render Plan

THE design idea of the Option 2 is aimed for creating natural form of water edge which reduces the impact of the wave strike created by the passing boat and purify the water and also for the aestheic purpose. As soon as we finalized the plan on paper, we scaned the tracepaper and import the image for making it into professional plan for further graphic making. When the AutoCAD plan was finished, it was imported into Sketch Up Pro to make the 3D model. We need to coorperate with the architecture team from another company to decide the design. Since the large quantities of the work, our team have been continued working for over 15 hours everyday for two weeks. After the concept plan has developed, another intern and I was assigned to refine the option 2. During the backand-forth discussion, the design has been modified several times depended on the requirment from the Project Stakeholder and finally successfully deliver a satisfying design and its related graphics.It tooks us a days from learning how to use this new tool to generate all these image and the outcome is quite cheerful. The project was a whole success after the client presentation.
