[MOTIVATION]

In my previous projects like the museum and the stadium, I often found it difficult to combine my interest in social problems with design together. So I wonder, what kind of topics in design can more directly solve these problems? Then I started my first step in urban design in Universität Stuttgart and found, the scale of urban design is a perfect entry point to take a step forward to find a proper position, as well as a step back to consider the process in detail. Later during my trip to the Netherlands, by talking to local people, I saw the positive impact of urban design on people’s life. This became my initial motivation to study urban design in the Netherlands . I learned more in my subsequent projects. In Independencity, I tried to use the rules behind urban fabric as a link between forms and identities, functions and characteristics. In my last project Microevolution, I tried to take more aspects such as timeline, intervention, finance into consideration and establish a sustainable chain. But compared to my experience in the Netherlands, the residents here have no interest in renovation. In China, more “upper class cities” are constructed, but people on the margins are constantly forgotten, so with more knowledge of policies, we designers should play a better part in uncovering their potential. This problem is universal. Now refugees have become a topic in Europe, shocking terrorist events such as Paris attack have added greater difficulty to the integration. But for the majority of immigrants, behind those negative tags lies their social and economical potential. In this field, TU Delft’s research into complex cities is in the front line, and the study into strategies and policies can deepen my understanding of practical urban issues. So as a design-oriented student, in my thesis project, I want to trace down the migration and expansion of refugees’ settlements. Their initial spatial forms, the intermediate states, the timeline and the genetic strategies will be my greatest concern. Now my horizon of design is expanded to more social aspects, on this stage, I believe a shift from architecture to urban scale is the best choice, and MSc. Urbanism program in TU Delft is definitely my top priority. I sincerely hope that I can be a member of it and start a new page of my exploration in urban issues.

[INTRO]

Houses in disrepair, business with tiny income, this is what’s left in Dongguan Street. This renovation must be gradually carried out with low cost and outside stimulation, thus thriving from capsule units, artists will introduce a new industry in, construction will start along the tram, the most outgoing element. This interactive timeline will gather artists and residents together and inspire a stronger force.

[ARCADE PROJECT] - Museum Design In Cultural Heritage Location: Dalian, China Type: Academic & Individual work Date: Mar 2014 - May 2014, 3rd year Role: Designer Contribution: All Supervisor: Hui YU, yuhui4792@163.com


[INTRO]

Museum, in one way, is a facility for public use, which means the funcion is to be determined by the surroundings and practical use. In another way, as a renovation project, this building’s own glamour is also an essential part. Thus, by exploring into the form and identity of Arcade in Gothic Revival Style, I want to make a link between present and past, and lead the experience inside to a brighter and moderner vision.

[INTENTION AND PROCESS] By studying the evolution from Gothic to Gothic Revival, a trace of renovation is shown. Abstraction

Why don't we come?

Sprawled out parking wastes space.

Many Gothic Rivival buildings around but the most are not available.

Too many underground passages along the main street are annoying.

Rigid content and lack of interactive activities

Lack of promotion and clear information

Dull and rejecting architectural form 12


[SURROUNDINGS AND VISION]

Paint the expected ‘Urban Linear Park’ in the future, and find out which role is left for the meseum to play. Organise regular activities

Make the grass land more useful

Indoor meeting point for public activities Educational space for pupils

Hide more parking space in green

Blur the gate and open it wide

Establish cultural introduction on the square

[ROLE OF THE MUSEUM] • As a part of ‘Urban Linear Park’ . • Show its Gothic Revival architectural style and its history as an industrial institute since 1912.

[FROM ARCADE TO MARKET]

Wanderers in the museum show how the spaces change from typical Gothic style to blurred boundary between inside and outside. Thus, like what is stated in Arcade Project, the meaning of arcade is redefined from centralization to autonomy. What a trick of the twisted perspective! Lift your head up and take a look at this holy space!

We can't wait to go upstairs to see the structures in details. And looking back at the doorway, a coming-in visitor is saying hello to me!

• Lift

I take a re s t h e re darling. Join me later, will you?

The extreme perspective vanished. Now the space is not that mysterious any more.

Look mommy, let's take a break there before moving on!

Deconstruct •

This wider outer space is just like a market now. Let the children go, we sit and feel the breeze though!

Hybrid •

Shift •

Now I can't really tell whether we're inside or out!

[INTRO]

Stadium, regarded as the landmark of a city, often means huge scale and outstanding form, but as is often the case, little attention is paid to the leer space outside. Also, many are designed only for mega events, which leads to very low frequency in every day use. Thus, this time, I try to merge this mega structure into landscape, and by emphasizing on the diversity of activities it offers, each part of this stadium can play a more vivid role in people's daily life.

• Apart from the main hall, additional small volumns are emphasized and set on different hights

• Adjust the structure and add curvilineal roof above

[SECTION x ACTIVITIES WITH A BRIDGE]

‘Bridge’ acts as the main structure, as well as a way to divide the stadium into different functional parts, and provide each part under the beam with correspondent scale according to the practical activities.

[PLAN x ACTIVITIES UNDER THE BRIDGES]

‘Bridge’ stretches gradually into the ground, cast less shadow, becomes an essential element in the site design and thus reduce unwanted negative space . Activity, architecture and landscape are elaborated in a whole.

[INTRO] A healthy urban system shows great cohenrence as well as independence. More and more cities are expanded to the edge, where there are barely any context. Yet they all have one shared goal, which is to offer as many living factors as possible and act as a healthy and independent sub-system. So I try to find out that whether there are some ‘Grand Urban Rules’ lying behind the functions, typologies, identities and their potential, and thus develope a genetic context to offer proper spaces for changing usage in subsequence.
