With a long tradition of being a unique piece of landscape, Park Avenue is famous for its long plantation area in the middle of the street. Sure an eye candy it is, it is never fully cooperated with the city. The intention of the sky bridge is to introduce a comprehensive infrastructure to enhance the neighborhood which combines retail, parks, running rails and plantations. Similar to the Highline Park, the isolation of this bridge could not only make the local residents more involved in the community event but also let the visitor truly appreciate the artificial majestic which is the New York skyline.

As another architect’s ambitions of gentrification, the runway park is developed at the center of series of the office-residential complex. Being supported by a series of inflatable structure and tension chord, we imposed a shading/running track into the site. It provides potentials for a series of landscape installations including the plaza, runway, grass field, workout equipment, etc to accommodate the recreational need for the local residents. It encourages people to go out and meet new people thus functions as a catalyst for forming a strong community.

Tokyo Anti-Library Competition Project Description: Since everyone could access its database while connecting to its network, infrastructure as libraries has been shrunk from a enclose human scale architectural space to a machine scale data center. Physical copies have been digitalized in an automatic workshop while organized by a compact robotic management system. Therefore, instead of inserting a building in the site, we spare most of the site as public parks of reading by and minimizing office space and cantilevering our physical collections. The Readers and nonreaders can share the same open ground. most of the site area is dedicated as public parks to mix the two group to the max. However, the materiality of books is not abandoned. The robotic management system serves as a vending machine reserves those who still want to come and have a hard copy in hand. As the robotic arms slide above the free park, an upside-down reflection of people reading, can be seen merged with the archive behind.

Architectural of Dance Competition Project Description: “What is new, what is new.” Such is the question that Joe wonders when it turns to dusk. Sure, his favorite club is charming, but he wants a little bit more adventurous uncertainty, a feeling he recalls from his visit to a dance place at 16, his very first time. “The collective movement of the goofy dances shaped into a beast.” he thought, “hard to believe those people just meet for the first time two beers ago. Participants were isolated in their own world, but they are dancing together, like a paradox.” The idea of a club in the size of a pocket interests him. It shall transform an everyday location into a place that feels new and old simultaneously. Let their surge be reminded by the glare of the rings, reflecting on the newly claimed territory enclaved by loss networks of the measuring tapes, marking the magnitude of crowd sizing. So, with a perturbed voice, he is ready. Open the tape to set a tempo. Wrap a gift and crowd shall follow. Share the rings, detach the moment. Claim the isolation from the acquaintance you know.

Marstopia Competition

Strucktured Competition

Project Description: In the year of 2118, a group of microclimate scientists proposes a Three-Phased-Project with the possibilities to revitalize portions of raw Martian landscape into an inhabitable zone. After the first settlers activate the Martian underground ice layer with extra heat generated from several hundred mini nuclear reactors, an accelerated hydrologic cycle can be triggered in an enclosed area. Over the course of 100 years, the local atmosphere will be stabilized and detoxicated by the air-purifier and atmosphere retainer to a stage, where the imported plants can initiate and, ultimately, people can survive in the area with no further protection from the Martian environment. Only then, can the massive transportation and the excavation become feasible for economical and scientifically exploration. The existence of this transformative infrastructure is as well a reflection into how to save earth from the potentially threatened environment. The date we know for sure that such ill earth consideration can be cured is when human steps on the land of Mars with his bare foot.

Section Perspective

Plant Factory A field is not a farm

The Plant Factory is a proposal with an ambition to feed a growing population with limited soil in the world. The soilless plant factory is an architecture without context, which means with the constant supply of water, seed, and relatively less electricity, the system could provide food in most urban habitat on earth. Instead of directly applying the hydroponic, it would be a closed system where plant, fish, mushroom and other the recycling component were tied by a piping system. The same mechanism compares to core tube in the skyscraper. The recycling component is underground, the fish tank is on the ground with a public access as landscape, and the plants is ironical, in the sky.

Container Youth Hostel The Container Youth Hostel is an experiment of a portable residential system that potentially leads to an opportunity of decentralizing the city. By reconstruct container and transform them into a modular living environment, we could find a way to mobilize a certain part of the population by simply provide them affordable housing without providing the respective land for the construction. The design could adapt any complicated mountainside landscape which allows the potential of rapid expansion and decentralization process. These type of housing are specifically aimed to provide underprivileged family and graduates who just step into the society a proper opportunity for possessing a house and help the recycling process of the deserted shipping container.

Project Description:

Sinking Alley is a bold attempt from the architect to enable a dying community in the heart of Wuhan. By implanting a community center in the heart of the community and integrate them with park, retail, and subway. The living quality of the local residents could be drastically improved which makes it possible to attract investment to the adjacent properties.

The 4S Store for Porsche is a celebration of contemporary transportation and the pure beauty of the machine. By integrating the testing track as a part of the showcasing system, this 4S shop sells rather a lifestyle than just a vehicle.

The building took advantage of the pit in an abandoned construction site which now turns into a lake. Instead of filling the lake, we decide to preserve this lake as a part of the history and turns it into a popular public space which is crucial to the local residents.

Data Driven Urban Design

Lucky Noinobori, Installation

Research on a hypothetical urban rezoning in Queens based on the impact of new built railroad system This is an urban scale project proposing a development plan for certain areas in Queens where new railway stations were built according to the land use, population density, built FAR, etc. We briefly looked into Brooklyn subway station and selected the best station in 16 different categories by looking into the average Q-Score of the selected area. Then we could run a similar iteration in Queens and match each station in Queens to the different categories in Brooklyn. After matching each station in Queens with a station in Brooklyn, we assume the station in Brooklyn is a successful example of area development for a transportation stop. Consequently, we could refer the land use ratio in Brooklyn station as a statistic example which the Queens station will grow into, Ultimately, we adjust the increasing residential and comercial building, and redistribute all the extra building area based on the outcome of a Grasshopper script that indicates the least impact for local residents.

Lucky Noinobori is an installation hover above the Brownie Cafe in Columbia University. The geometry of each unit is an imitation of a moving carp, expressing a unique language compares to its surrounding. Lucky Noinobori is not just a sculpture of form, but a challenge to traditional architecture. By developing a hierarchy of structure in both Rhino and 3D Experience platform, not only we can deliver our design without 2D drawings, but we have the opportunities to gain a more efficient communication between designers and manufacturers. What worth mentioning is that instead of getting information of our site using 2D drawing, we are modeling based on a 3D scanning point cloud aggregation. From input to output, a paperless design process is achieved.

Experimental Installation of Brick Pavilion, 2012 Group Work as Team Leader Supervisor: Wei Mu

Inspired by “the Programmed Wall”, the installation is an experiment for a construction of a café with similar form. By applying physical model and digital simulation (grasshopper), we are able to determine a self-support form of six curved wall with the help of a senior student. The installation is partly constructed due to the site and budget limitation. Meanwhile, industrial glue was applied for safety concern.

Casting Serie- Gothic, 2016 Individual Work Supervisor: Trevor Waston Gothic represents an improved level of 3-dimensional stacking, as it not only allows a planar connection, it provides the possibilities for a spatial growth, not only forming a solid geometry but create space. The name of the Gothic didn’t come along until we start to stack them together. The geometry looks much more impressive as the unit starts to aggregate, and because the unit is pointy and sharp, the atmosphere of a gothic church is formed.

Product Design: Soles, 2014 Team Work with Zhaoxuan Wang Supervisor: Sam Cho In this design, we are designing soles for a customizable shoe. The upper surface of the shoe could be unwrapped to a planar surface, thus graphic designer could spread their design on the shoes. As supervised by our instructor, the goal of the Sole design is simply creating something unique enough as a part of the shoe, but still be able to be mass produced. The bottom of the sole has changed during the manufacturing process for it is unable to provide enough friction as qualified shoes.
