Education Institutions: 2006-2008 Balwyn High School, Melbourne, Australia 2009-2012 Bachelor of Environment, major in Architecture, University of Melbourne, Australia 2012-2014 Master of Architecture, University of Melbourne, Australia Skills Rhinocore, Grasshopper, AutoCAD, Revit, Sketchup, IES (Virtual Environment), and Vray, InDesign, Photoshop, and Illustrator. Do you have any work experience? What have you gained? Metricon, Melbourne (November 2012 to January 2013) Metricon is one of the largest home builders in Australia. They design residential buildings and houses with a focus on land development, construction, and land packages. I was employed by Metricon Melbourne as a draft person during summer holiday. I gained a solid understanding of design process, team work skill as well as atmosphere of Australian housing company. I was involved in the design tp update construction details of Freedom Series, Allegra Series, and Signature Series. Do you have any internship experience? What have you gained? YHIA, Beijing (November 2011 to January 2012): YHIA is one of the largest and earliest class –A jointequity design enterprises. I learned a lot about typical design process, as well as communication with clients. I was involved in an early master planning of Front area of Mengdong Bauyinhua coal-electricitysilicon project of China Power Investment Corporation. Have you ever been involved in a live project? Project background: Master design studio called Machine Atheistic V1.1 (1.City Scope) which is a competition based studio. The brief is to design a winter enclosure for the Atrium of Federation Square and make 1:1 prototypes. Client: Federation Square of Melbourne, Australia Location: North Atrium of Federation Square Budget: $200,000, and $5000 for material testing and prototype making. Status: The studio was divided into two groups competing for this project. The final result has not been released yet. However our group was asked to pass the construction details to the engineer for further testing. Have you ever lead a team in school project? In our project “City Scope”, the group that I led won the first round, and we are still waiting for the final outcome. The working environment is very similar to the real world like working in a small architecture company. I was working in digital team, and my role was to ensure the initial concept that leads us to won in round one progress on the right track, and, both digital and physical members worked efficiently together in order to achieve the artistic effect and it's workability.
What is the major characteristic of your current school’s education? 1. Bachelor Degree - “The new Melbourne model” is designed for students who have a variety of goals, and seek diversity of knowledge. The curriculum consists of a wide range of study options and pathways, in which every student is exposed to a broader range of subject than that from other courses. 2. Master Degree - The design studios is comprised of half of the curriculum program, and culminate in a research thesis. Students choose 1 from 30 architecture design studios each semester, and studios cover aesthetic, technological, programmatic, environmental and social issues in the production of architecture. Students can start to form their own argument about architecture. Other core subjects are more focused on student’s employability. What have you learned from your school curriculum? 1. From 10 design studios that I have done , making and modeling are design tools and parameters rather than presentation skill only. Making empowers the strength of design, and also make it more practical and meaningful. “Even when making is experimental and open-ended, it observes rules. Craft always involves parameters, imposed by materials, tools, scale and the physical body of the maker. Sometimes in making, things go wrong. ......An expert, though, will find a way through the problem, constantly unfolding new possibilities within the process.” (Daniel Charny, Power of Making, V&A, London 2011). 2. Because of the high flexibility of the curriculum, I have gained comprehensive knowledge about construction, urban planning, landscape, architecture history, and arts. And the knowledge becomes inspiration or problem solving strategy in my design. What make you special compared to other architecture students from other universities or countries? 1. My bachelor degree is Environment which is comprised of several majors, such as architecture, landscape architecture, construction, and urban planning. I have the opportunity to gain knowledge from other fields. For an instance, I choose a landscape architecture design studio as my elective subject in year 2. 2. I have been living in Australia nearly 8 years, and I also stayed with Australian local family during my high school years in Melbourne. Therefore I can speack fluent English. My education experience gives me an open mind with which Allows me to communicate efficiently within team members and get along well with colleagues. How do you explore architecture outside university? I love to travel and explore every corners of city that has their own stories. I have been to Italy, France, Germany, Holland, Austria, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Singapore, and Thailand. I love Melbourne and Amsterdam most. Even they don’t have many magnificent historical buildings as Italy and France, neither like Germany and Singapore have modern architecture everywhere with latest technology. In Melbourne and Amsterdam, You can tell people’s love and happiness from a coffee shop at the corner, graffiti in laneways, and people on bicycles. Because of the human-scaled city planning and they play with visual transparency and physical boundary.

2 Reflection Refraction Affection
This project is done in master design studio D (second semester in master degree), Machine Artistic V1.0, (before Cityscope) leading by Paul Loh and David Leggett. Collaborators: Nick Chou, Jackie Tieu. The project is to design a small six storey building that contains exhibition area, workshop, gift shop, and office for Craft Victoria. Regarding to our studio, the idea of machine aesthetics lies in a field of exploring t h e ca p a b i l i t i e s o f m a c h i n e s a n d , t h u s , mastering them for the purpose of serving our design process. We explored vacuum forming process in terms of testing and making of architecture products. Our home-made vacuum forming machine is a design tool and parameter to assist us to produce “touchstone”, “spatial model”, “cultural model” and then final model. Our concept is “dynamic views” was inspired from Prada store, Tokyo. The touchstone that we produced from serious of testing and making both digitally and physically, has amazing visual affect and potential of space design. So it is the inspiration of later spatial model (space arrangement), cultural model (building envelope) and final model.

Key desirables: • Single location for all functions • No major OH&S/ access issues • High level street visibility, supported by an inviting and fully accessible front of house. • Larger well fitted spaces to present works of greater significance to larger audiences • Similar proportions of overall space usage, with greater compartmentalisation of retail and curatorial functions. • Increase in capacity of public program space from 35 to 75 people • Address current deficiencies such as art storage, security and environmental control • Car parking or loading bay facilities to enable delivery of artworks and retail products.
President builidng Study - Prada Store, Toyko Prada Store is responding to its surrounding environment by its “diamond” façade READING (THROUGH) ENVOLOPE
– reflecting and refracting images of people and buildings that surround it. When people passing by, they see reflected and refracted images which keep changing over and over and as a result, creating the illustion of a moving facade. In addition, each diamond panel is fixed to the frame which is acting as a separated sytem from the floor sytem. There is an obvious hierarchy of public and private spaces in Prada Store. The pavement located in front of the building is completely open to the public, the store is acting as a semi-public space for customers. Meanwhile the VIP room is the private spaces which is reserved for VIP customers and is also an independent area with sandblasted panel on the façade. There are four types of glass panels – concave, convex, flat and sandblasted flat
panel. Concave and convex panels can manipulate people’s views in different ways. People from outside can see refracted views of goods in the store or reflected view of neighbourhood. Meanwhile people from the inside can see reflected views of goods in the store or refracted views of outside environment.

I’m designing free kitchen and picnic area to encourage people to ride or walk to the market instead driving. The market has potential to be a place for people to visit on daily basis. The skateboard park is also encouraging people to ride.
Restaurants via wider street have outdoor furniture, and creating laneways with shops.
Gallery is the circulation of culture centre, with grid glazing that can display artworks, and 3D laneway with skyline display walls. Library is spaces that connected by gallery.
Hotel’ is the combination of two “grid”, one northwest (same as city grid) and one north east (same as VIC Market). So the tower is twisted. And the glazing with Melbourne city grid pattern is for people to read story of Melbourne from it. The idea is inspired from 'backpacker can get a free night stay at one’s sofa by telling a interesting story'.
