ENDEAVOUR SPACE GALLERY - The Nexus

The concept of the building design is connecting different buildings on the site and combining them together through the Endeavor Gallery. Visual connection and the circulation flow will is achieved in the building design through insideout connection with transparency building material. However, the Endeavor shuttle is not completely revealed from exterior but with frosted glass material, it gave people a sense of scale of the shuttle and the existence. A big goal of the building design is to bring more people to the park and attract them to activate the park more. 1

TRANSIT ORIENTED DEVELOPMENT - Housing

Project Overview This Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) is mixed-use residential designed to maximize access to public transportation while providing privacy for residents. For easy ventilation and the creation of a friendly community in the building, the courtyard is placed in the middle of complex above the first level retail. To maximize the lighting in the building, the width of the courtyard was widened by having overhangs on the other side of the housing.

The plaza in the middle of the site is the center of the circulation and the space that all the other spaces flow into. To emphasize the central plaza, the buildings in our group were shaped as a rectangle without one corner. The building form was designed to enhance the natural ventilation of the housing, and as a result, the outdoor courtyard was created. After the sun studies and many design studies, the south part of the building was set back to allow more sunlight in the courtyard and apartment units.

Family Housing/ Town House with Courtyard To reflect the housing on the other side of 10th Ave, the housings faces 10th Ave instead of the retail stores. The housing was designed as family housing in the complex, with working parents with young kinds to bring more family oriented uses to Capitol Hill like it was before in the 1930s to 1950s. The courtyard space is 40ft wide, and it maximizes incoming light to the courtyard. The kitchens and living rooms are facing the courtyard to have a visual connection to the open space and easier access. The town house concept tries to minimize circulation, and create inward balconies. 11

Material Diagram To express the modern setting of the site and TOD project with natural materials, wood panels and aluminum panels were used for the facade. A roof garden and plants on the building adds warmth for the family housing. Public Space in front of the housing

HEALTH CLUB AND WELLNESS CENTER

Project Overview This Health club and Wellness center is sited in Capital Hill, Seattle. It is a mixed-use building that includes a Fitness center, Exhibition space, and cafè. The balance between mind, body and spirit acts as a main idea for the building, and results in a balance of different materials and spaces throughout the building. The woven character of the materials also can be seen in the inter-connected spaces that have different functions. 13


ARCH 302, Instructor : Brian Mclaren

Concept The site analysis photo collage emphasizes the space in between two buildings, which became the concept of the Wellness Center. A concept model was developed from the collage to express the space and balance in between two different types of wood.

HEALING PAVILION IN ROME

Project Overview This Pavilion is located in Tiber Island and Ponte Fabricio, connecting two existing places together. Since the Island is known as ‘healing place,’ the pavilion provides health care services such as free check ups and health related lectures. Also, the pavilion provides space for meditation, so that people can come and do Yoga or Tai Chi. Like the meaning of wellness; a balance of mind, body and spirit in peaceful vitality, the pavilion will be the connection to the unity in people’s own self-consciousness and a healthy body. 17


ARCH 400 , Instructor : Ken Oshima, Nicole Huber

Concept The Tiber River is the origin of the city. As a space of one’s balance between body, mind and soul, this means going back to the origin and purifying oneself. By occupying space above the river, people can be in nature and experience being in a floating space. To express the space above the water, the building form is actually floating with a few structural elements holding the space.

Connecting the Boarders

Roof Plan

Plan

The pavilion acts as bridge to let people to go down to the island and interact with nature. Given that there is only one narrow stair going down to the island, the bridge connecting to the island would provide more convenient access. 18

ROSLYN STOREFRONT STUDIO - Interactive interior space Design Exploration

roslyn

visitor center

Project Overview The Storefront Studio in Roslyn was supported by the Roslyn Downtown Association and residents in Roslyn to develop the city by keeping the tradition and history of a miner town. As one of the projects for the Visiting center, the front desk was designed to give more welcoming atmosphere to the visitors and show the characteristics of Roslyn more clearly. For the desk, plywood and 2� by 4� wood were used with nails and washers for easy assembly. The wood frame on the desk was attached to cover the edges of rusted metal, and the design on the metal sheets was stenciled with acrylic paint. 19

ROSLYN VISITOR VISITOR CENTER CENTER ROSLYN

Different graphic designs and materials were explored to express the character of Roslyn. As a result, four pieces of rusted metal which was found objects from Roslyn were used on the front of the desk with coal cart graphic design.

Sign Design The sign for the Open House was designed to remind people of the time and place for the Open House. We designed the graphic of the sign on computer and transferred the design on the actual board by painting with acrylic paint.

SHELTER IN WILDERNESS A

Project Overview The goal of this project is to design the survival shelter in wilderness in Cleveland Memorial Forest using structural dimensions and construction assemblies. I chose the tower form to let students who use the shelter to look out easily and be safe from wild animals. The shelter is designed to block the wind as much as possible and get the least weather condition. Extensive bracing on every levels of the shelter to make the shelter more stable and strong. 21

FURNITURE DESIGN

2” by 4” wood Furniture We were allowed to use 12‘ 2” by 4” piece of wood for a table design. To minimize the volume of two tables, they can combine together and to store easily without taking too much space. The tables also can be flipped around for different use. I was inspired by theYing-Yang pattern in the beginning of the design process.

Plywood Furniture This project was made with one full sheet of plywood. The playfulness of the table was the main concept. There were slots every other layer allow the pieces to be inserted the other way to be overhanged. Each slots has holes on the side to remove them with two fingers. 23


ARCH 402, Instructor : Jim Nicholls

Final Project Beachwood was used for this project. To emphasize the curved live edges, one leg is tilted. The bracing part of the leg comes all the way to the ground for simple and elegant design.

COLOR AND LIGHT - Interior lighting study

Project Overview Starting with the reference of ‘Color Model Environments’ by Harold Linton, the study of color, light and texture was completed with different intensities of light and texture of one side of the light room. The atmosphere in the light room is distinct on each step.

outer skin layer

When there is a wound on skin, the inner skin cells gather and connect with the wound. The wound can get healed if the connection becomes hard and part of a skin part.

Healing Method A wound from a dreary city life or natural disaster can be healed through finding lost senses from a connection to the bigger world. When a life is acknowledged the fact that every life is a part of nature and the world, a wound in life can be healed. Healing and Building Through reducing a border between nature and humans and stretching the gap in between, a connection to nature can be established. The building acts as a bridge between nature and humans.

10 Building and People Through the public space connecting two buildings and the whole site together, the space becomes a place to interact with people and Flamenco. An outdoor theater helps people get together to watch a film or a performance in an open space, and addition to that, the sloped open area on the other side is covered with grass so that people can relax and be a part of the complex. The atmosphere of a Flamenco Festival will be added like a passion of Flamenco. 29

Concept and Design The concept of this building is to create a harmony between dance, music and people. When there is a harmony in those three elements, the atmosphere becomes perfect for Flamenco. In the building, the school, museum and public space mix together to create the harmony and balance to have a space to enjoy Flamenco.
