The site is on the Eastern side of Fed sq. There are 4 buildings surrounding a central plaza with one joined to the existing Fed Sq. The whole fabric is covered by the same pattern of skin, so the development can be read as a whole image. Gaps between the buildings are carefully planned to create 4 framed views, each of them pointing toward a landmark of Melbourne. There are underground linkage under the plaza and a big entrance connecting the plaza and the Yarra river promenade.

Dazzle camouflage is chosen in my project. It is extensively used on navy during the second world war. As making the ship invisible is impossible, the camouflage visually distort the outline of the vessel, making the enemy hard to estimate the direction and main components of the vessel as the skin combined the outllook of the vessel, transforming it into a complicated mixture.

This is a competition based studio project. It aims at developing a strong and clear concept to extend the current fed sq site with new galleries and commercial development. The project also explore the possibility of applying camouflage idea into architecture.

5. The Dazzle pattern reinforced the idea of framed view. New buildings and landscape are now read as a whole image.

The size of the new public space is similar to the federation square with multiple acces from the Flinder street, Yarra riverside and the existing NGV. There will be stairs linking the riverside to the public space underneath the design school. New drop off points are added, to provide group entrance (Point 2) to the NGV and to insert a new inflow of people into the site (Point 1). Drop off Point 1 is also shared to the commercial boot scheme tower, providing an easy access for guests which usually arrived with private vehicles. The form of the buildings are come from the “Framed View� idea, the connection between buildings are underneath the Camo Plaza which is a public open space deck.

The module system was tested on 2 real sites, John Street and Albert park. The configuration at John Street is a home for a family with 2 children. The basic module is lifted up to provide shelter outdoor space for children. As the house is located at the corner, a large balcony provide space for neighbourhood gatherings.

A basic module include a bedroom, bathroom and living area for a single family. The quick erected building method allows the module to be setup easily on site. There are several additonal modules can be added to the basic module for extension purpose.

This is a community project addesses the issue of homelessness in Mornington Peninsula. Before the design process, extensive research was done with the help of local neighbourhood renew council. Beside the site visits and interviews, community forum were hold in Hastings to collect real data along the Kings Creek area.

This project aims at creating a “tool” for homeless people based on a DIY idea. Instead of creating a simple temporary accommodation solution to them, a DIY system encourages homeless people to “design” their cabins with the help of volunteers and professionals.

The house is designed for an Judo player. The concept is to create an comfortable indoor living space while strong connection with the surrounding environment is still maintained. Plenty of openings allows the resident to admire the splendid view of the Victoria Harbour. Skylights are designed over the bedroom and the livingroom, the resident can have a clear view of the stary sky at night.

This project is aimed at creating a convivial urban space for the community of Tin Shui Wai in Hong Kong. Since its construction, a lack of community services and an unfriendly pedestrian environment have contributed to many social problems in the town. This project explores ways to liberate local residents from their compact apartments into a community complex which enhances everyday interaction within the neighborhood. As a contrast to the extreme verticality of the residential towers, this project addresses a horizontally layered landscape of floating buildings and the roof-scapes. Sunken gardens provide spaces for open communal activities and hydroponic farming: an opportunity to facilitate a self-sustaining new town for Hong Kong.

Tai O is a historic fishing village in Hong Kong, it is located on Lantau Island, far away from the city center. The aim of this project is to design a cultural museum to present the history of this small village to visitors. Plenty of exhibiton area, a library and a multi-media exhibition area are required.

Capsule House Breaking Boundaries

Tai O is made up of a cluster of fishermen boat house. Fishermen has uplifted their fishing boats and transformed into their permanent homes. These houses are planned in roles, leaving gaps between houses as circulation space. Through those gaps, different layers of houses are revealed, creating an interesting visual effect with a richness and variety of fishermen’s lifestyle.

The building mass is lifted up from the ground, visitors have to complete a journey through the garden at the back, a transitional space before entering the museum.

The idea of layering is put into the design. Gaps of opening is carefully planned on the walls inside the museum. From the gaps, a line of sight can see through several exhibiton space, reflecting the idea of layering within the fishing village.

Increasing layers of a translucent materials can reduce its transparency, it can be used as a tool for defining private and public space. Traditional load bearing walls are transformed into hollow inhabitable structures for exhibition area. Walking through the fashion gallery is an interesting journey that visiter can feel the movement of continuous changing spatial quality with a sense of different volume and layers of space.

Project: Stadium

Capsule House

My teammate Ricky is responsible for the basic structural elements and the audience stand while I am responsible for the outer skin of the building. We have worked closely together as a single change will greatly affect both the skin and structure. An FTP server is set up to allow share of information within the team. There is a common ground where 2 teammates can setup the basic rules, common parameters and library for the project. Our individual parts are depend on the common rules. This open-end research brings out a set of rules to improve the communication for designers sharing a common virtual platform in order to create a successful project.

DIY

The team included one supervisor, Jane Berry and 2 students, Ricky Lau and Me. We chose a sport stadium as our medium for exploration as it is an ideal type of architecture that is very functional and aestically pleasing at the same time.

Flexible floor light(MELBOURNE)

Prefab DIY Capsule House Breaking Boundaries

The flexible floor lamp is formed by light modules. Each module includes a lightshade, a LED light source and a small electric motor. A central rod is used to hold all stacked light modules to the base. Giving a degree of rota on, each module is individually moveable, rota ng around the rod by the motor. By modifying the angles of rota on, pa erns of floor lamp modules can be formed. The element of the light is controlled by parameters, by using a parametric so ware eg. Digital Project, the size and shape of each individual module can be modified easily. It totally a flexible model in the digital world.

Candle holder(MELBOURNE) Lantern(HONG KONG)

Composite space

Besides ligh ng purpose, this lantern is an decora ve object that reveals the elements of a plant. The light bulb is mounted inside the base, while it is off, the object looks like a normal plant. When the night comes, the light projects the shadow of the net layers to the outer skin, reveals the “roots” of the plant, which is usually hidden in the soil.

This is an exercise of using Rhino to create a small object and by means of 3D dust prin ng technique to create the final product.
