Publisher's Loft In charge of SD/DD/CD/Bidding/CA The client's existing space housed an expansive book collection cluttering both living and leisure spaces. We embraced this as a design opportunity, how to elegantly incorporate the collection into the loft without it being an overwhelming omnipresent element in the space. The design used the library as an infrastructure to organize the existing space, wrapping its perimeter with custom designed shelving set at a 45 degree angle. The angle allows the book collection to be viewed from one direction and in the other, provides three dimensional wall, which animates as natural light changes throughout the day. The diagonal created by the shelves provides a motif extended throughout the space with custom tile work and wood flooring.

Small Lots Competition by NYC Housing Preservation & Delelopment New York City has 1,023 acres of vacant land over 1,367 lots, according to LivingLots NYC. To address this, the New York chapter of the AIA and the City's Department of Housing Preservation and Development have teamed up to present the Big Ideas Small Lots NYC design-build competition to utilize New York City's unused infill lots for alternative housing options.

Programming study: Our proposal investigates on an alternative model, where a series of semi-private communal spaces are shared with 3-4 micro units, creating a sense of smaller communes within the larger structure. The idea allows for a loop-hole in the density law, allowing for the building to have 3 (shared) units.

Proposed multi-level common space: Each shared unit has three micro units (without kitchen) on three different levels to provide privacy. The private units share a series of small communal spaces; kitchen/ dining space, a lounge area and living room. All these spaces are organized on three half levels. While visual connected, they provide privacy when needed for the tenants.

Egress and Accessibility: A central elevator stops in all half levels for accessibility. A two hour rated shaft for egress is located at the rear end of the massing. Due to the small and narrow size of the lot, the 2nd egress stair is a combination of egress and convenience staircase. The stair case is open to the shared space in each of the three unit but has a 2 hour rated enclosure between each unit. The communal space of each unit has a two hour rated enclosure around, separating it from the unit above and below as well as from the micro units. Half of the ground floor is dedicated to a local non-profit - Housing Works, as a community space.

Unit 1 and Unit 2 have 3 micro units within. Since unit 3 at the top can have day-light and fresh air from above for the communal/ shared space, a 4th micro unit is added, facing the back yard. The communal space on unit 3 gets light and air from windows facing both North and South.

Times Square Valentine Heart Invited competition by AIA New York & Times Square Arts How do you illustrate and amplify love in Times Square, where every day, 350,000 pedestrians from New York City, across the country, and around the world cross paths with strangers from all walks of life? For 2019’s competition — the eleventh in the history of the program — Times Square Arts is collaborating with AIA New York to invite eight firms to contemplate how a Valentine sent from the heart of Times Square might embrace various expressions of love, both individual and collective. Can the public art installation generate connections and ignite conversations that articulate our aspirations as individuals, as a city, as a nation, and beyond?

Status: Competetion in 2018 Programs: Installation Installation: UAP Company Project location: New York, NY Area: W x D x H: 22' x 22' x 11' Responsibilities: Design/Rhino models/CAD drawings/Renderings/ Diagrams/Presentation documents

Project description: B-KD is composed of first generation immigrants. To love as an immigrant requires us to belong and belonging thrives from expression, recognition and ownership. We want our design to be a gesture for belonging. The installation is comprised of two 22’ long by 11’ high walls intersecting in the middle at 90 degrees. The center of both walls has a heart shape cut out, creating four intersections with a heart shape void in the middle. The skyline of city and the crowds that gather in Times Square are invited to fill the void. In addition, either side of both walls are covered with a skin of reversible sequins. One side of the skin is finished with brushed stainless steel and the other a highly reflected red color metal. As visitors brush their hands over the skin, the sequence flips from one side to the other, creating an interactive and playful wall, as well as allowing people to write words on both sides of the heart. The design invites visitors to express their love; ranging from names of loved ones to statements of passion, making Times Square a space to ‘speak your heart’.

M. Arch thesis project Chinese landscape paintings & Architecture My thesis is about Chinese landscape paintings and architecture. Other forms of art can always be related to architecture, though Chinese paintings have a different history and use different techniques, they present different stories. In this work, I begin by analyzing the Chinese landscape paintings in the Sung Dynasty. To most Chinese literati, landscape paintings have been a vehicle to express their political and philosophical ideas by depicting their reclusive life in deep mountains. The paintings are not a realistic presentation of what painters see every day, but more like a self-expression of the world that they have been experiencing. People may have different paintings even they paint the same theme. The landscape paintings usually describe the journey that the painters have during their reclusion or depict parts of their journey separately. The trip can be simplified as a linear route contains different types of scenes which make this journey interesting. We can abtract the paitings into an architectural model which have the same characters.

Name: Autumn Color of Thousands Miles of Rivers and Mountains Painter: Boju Zhao (1120 - 1182) Time: The Southern Sung Dynasty (1127 - 1279) Type: Chinese handscroll Size: 55.6 cm x 323.2 cm

46


Characters: The paintings are more about painters' trip which may last several days in the mountain and this is also an ideal way of life. The painters then go back home and paint based on their experiences, thus they create a world based on the real one. There are some characters here in the landscape paintings. First, since it is a painting, there are foreground, mid-ground and background - layered spaces stacked together. Second, we can see their trip in the painting, guided by a route. We

can imagine the start point and end point. Third, there are a series of scenes - landscapes, buildings and people - along this route. Fourth, the painting is not what the mountain really looks like, but painters’ own understanding. So, the paintings will change if they choose a different route. What makes this line very intriguing is that the spaces are changing, there many different types of spaces and the painters can come across something that they are not expecting to see.

Site: The site used to be an ideal place for reclusion, many ancient painters came here and left some paintings showing how the ideal life would be. However, now industrial factories have been built here and somehow destroyed the landscapes, and people are losing that kind of idea of living with nature. On the other hand, there are still some artists coming and trying to recall the old memory using their own ways. So, according to the context, the purpose of my design is to provide a place for the artists as a studio and a gallery to make people there realize the importance of the nature, and create an interaction between people and landscapes.

It is a hybrid function building which can be served as a community center for the villagers, a studio for the artist and a gallery for both and other visitors. So, the villagers can learn from the artists to recall the ideal way of life. At the meantime, the artists can get inspired from the villagers and the rural life. Even though people here share the same building, to different people, the building is different, because the way they meander is different, and the experience is distinct, like the landscape paintings, people will have different paintings even they go to the same mountain.

Routes: Here are three main different routes for three typical users, however, there are still some places people can share. Their experience will be distinct. I treat the building as a mountain, and people can explore in it. Furthermore, the site is note flat, so there are different height levels, people can enjoy the beautiful landscapes from different heights. And also it will create a feeling that they are in a mountain by layering spaces vertically.

Scenes: Along these routes, there are a series of places and scenes that people will encounter. Some places have functions, some places can be correlated to the surrounding context, and there are some moments which have no function but to let people enjoy or meditate. These important monumental spaces are a implication of the landscape moments in the painting. Like the lake, the flower shrub, the bamboo groove, the forest or the temple.

SHNH | Pin-up wall Digital design | Materials | Construction Seven Hills Neighborhood House is a charitable public place whose goal is to help poor Africian-Americian children to get some education. This institute locates in an old building which has a poor condition and facing a financial shortage. As an architect student, our goal was trying to improve the interior condition and provided a better and more comfortable working place both for the faculties and students there. Our group was focused on the conference room, and we were facing three main problems. First of all, the carpet has been worn out and needs to be changed. Second, the conference table is not big enough for all the faculties working there. Third, the pin-up wall was small and old, and we need a more beautiful and multi-function one to bring new energy to the space. Our team's assignment is to design the new pin-up wall.

Academic work: Design build studio Project location: Cincinnati, Ohio Pin-up wall team: Jing Guo/Yanji Zhao Professor: James C Postell Software: Rhino/Grasshopper/Vray for Rhino/Adobe Illustrator Summer 2015

Background: The SHNH is a one-stop social service agency offering a wide array of client-driven services to individuals, children, families, and seniors. Founded in 1961 with the merger of the West End's Findlay Street Neighborhood House and the East End's Riverview Neighbors House. However, the building is now facing a critical financial shortage, and with not enough timely maintenance. The interior design is old, even cannot meet everday requirement.

This room not only serves as an office and a meeting room for the stuff here, but also a place to present the AfricanAmerician culture of this neighborhood. It is also a place where parents can communicate with the staffs, and sometimes it is treated as a classroom. The pin-up wall can be a center of this room, not only to be able to pin up posters and notices, but also bring new engergy to this building.

The meeting room plays an important role in this buildng.

With Grasshopper, we create a dynamic pattern which is composed of three different materials, the pattern is to present the vitality and engergy of youndgchildren and the future of this community.

The Columbus atheneum Integrated design The project is 37,000 square feet. The goal of the studio is to develope of a "construction ethic". The course is about deep investigations into specific moments of the project. During the design process, I should deeply consider about coordinating the different systems and infrastructure within a building. Mostly, the intention was to organize the spaces and the infrastructure as an integrated design, where the infrastructure would be thought of since the beginning and as a design opportunity rather than as a consequence. Academic work: Design studio Project location: Columbus, Indiana Professor: Anton C Harfmann Software: SketchUp/Vray for SketchUp/Adobe Photoshop/AutoCAD

72


Integrated the System

Structure: The structure of the athenaeum is mainly composed of bearing walls and trusses. There are openings on walls based on different projects to let people go through, and art works can also be exhibited on these bearing walls.

Egress: There are two main elevators and one main stair in the middle of the building, and two stairs on the side. There is a elevator on the side for the archive which located in the basement.

Infrastructure: All the HVAC system, electricy and plumbing are hidden between bearing walls, and the pipes penetrate through walls distrbuting to the whole building.

A4 Art Museum | Children eduaction center Children reading area and recreational facilities A4 Art Museum is located in Chengdu’s Luxelakes Eco-City in a structure designed by architect Antoine Predock. Built facing the lake, the art center blends seamlessly with the surrounding red sandstone and serves as an architectural landmark of the Tianfu New Area. Mentored by Yilin, we worked on the interior design of children education center. By using grasshopper, we design several children recreational facilities. I am in charge of the climbing facility, and also responsible for some renderings and diagrams.

Considering the program of the CEC, we decide to give the aisles two programs. One serves as a small reading area with a free-form bookshelf attached on the wall. Another one is an entertainment area

We want to integrate children's activities with the space by designing a recreational facility. This is not just an ordinary aisle, but also a playground. The two functions do not interfere with each other, however, they co-exist together.

There are also doodle boards along the aisle, where children can draw whatever they like here. We can imagine a liviely aisle where some children are drawing and giggling , while other children are climbing and playing in the climbing net.

1 X 12 House Learn from Tadao Ando When I began to design this house, I thought about Tadao Ando’s two concrete buildings-Row House in Sumiyoshi and The Church of Light. The former is also limited in a small area, and the latter is a creation of light. In this cold city, light can keep us warm.

Site: This house is 1 meter wide and 12 meters long, loacted in Harbin - northeast of China - which is a very cold place. Some people cannot afford the expensive fee for renting a house, let alone buy a new one. So they build a house in the gap between two buildings, and the house has 4 floors. These peolple now have a home, though it is not sweet at all. I was so shocked that I think I can design a better house for them.

Background: Due to the Only-one Child Policy, the standard Chinese family is composed of mom, dad and one child. So, the house has to meet this basic need. The original house is built between a one-meter-wide gap. First, the space is so limited that people can barely live in it. Second, the place is a mass and the whole building is built by cheap and used materials. Some "room" is used as a bedroom, and also a living room. The study table is a dinning table as well. There is no clear boundary between public space and private space. These are the main problems that I have to deal with.

Programs: The structure of a traditional house is horizonal organized. Since this special house is limited horizontally, so it has to go vertically. Each level is 12-squaremeter, so 4-level seems to be better for a normal Chinese family with 3 people. This special house contains all thw things we need to keep people live here feeling comfortable.

Light In Church of Light by Tadao Ando, light is used to create a sacred space. In this house, I want to desgin some places where people can feel sweet. The child's bedroom is a small space where light can fill up all the room. There are also some skylights so that people can enjoy the beautiful starry night. The loft is a place for meditation and a private place. A beam of light is perfect in this space.

The light from the house is like a light house, which gives people warmth and strength in the cold winter in this cold city.

Sketches Skethes to me is a way of understanding architecture and learn how to present my ideas clearly. Sometimes I learn from masters' sketches, I try to study how to organize the drawings and stress what I want to say.
