01 [ Domestic City ]

Redrawing of East Harlem Artisi Housing Individual Work 2017 Spring Ctritic: Hilary Sample

Domestic City is the redrawing of east Harlem. It is the response to the urban gentrification and urban decay in East Harlem. It is the rethinking of private and public inspired by Gordon Matta-Clark’s works. It is the repositioning of people, housings and city through the experiments on drawings, Domestic city is the expansion of the domestic architecture. It is about the running of multiple families and the observing, witnessing and caring of the city. It visually and physically reconcile the family and city, to give the people in the housing a sense of in the city. The domestic city doesn’t oppose to private, but it encourages private’s engagement in the community. The domestic City doesn’t expose individuals to the multitudes, but it captures the moments of the city.


The DECAYING EAST HARLEM has been undergoing a resurgence for decades, yet the neighborhood is still pockmarked with four- or five-story walk-ups where the ground-floor stores are bustling and the APARTMENTS above are DEVOID OF LIFE.

Responding to the condition, the New York born Artist Gordon MattaClark created a series of influential art works in forty years ago. One of them is the impressive cut through two buildings in Paris, the CONICAL

INTERSECT.

The cut directs the beholders’ attention on the building’s latent mythology, its DEFINING DOMESTICITY, its association with the

SPACE OF THE FAMILY, COMMUNITY AND HOME. The cut might be also read as an AGENT

OF THE CATEGORY

OF TIME, as a radical intervention into the socio-historic fabric of the

buildings and their environs that bring one history to a standstill but release another in a moment of shock.


While on the other end of the void, the cut opens the adjacent space, cast light on the neighbor’s facial expression, and in further, capture the moment of city. In addition to its criticizing on capital and politics, it express an intimate status of community, a dissolving from private to public. It is about LIGHT, VISUAL CONNECTION AND FRAMING. It is about

TIME, CAPTURING MOMENT in a long period.

IS IT POSSIBLE TO SETTLE THIS STATUS IN A USING HOUSING? Especially for East Harlem, a mainly residential district,

facing the gentrification and urban decay, to mediate the relation between family and family, family and community, family and city, and vice versa, city and family.

The void is used to reconstruct, redefine and reconcile the living room and working room, the relative private space and public space in each apartment. On one hand, the void is the expansion of the working room,

on the other hand, it is the corridor for other family to go up and down. The ambiguous condition of the void strengthen the intimacy of the commnity.


Short section showing the relation to the neighbourhood


Domestic city is the expansion of the domestic architecture. It is about the RUNNING

OF MULTIPLE FAMILIES and the OBSERVING, WITNESSING AND CARING OF THE CITY. It visually and physically reconcile the family and city, to give the people in the housing a sense of in the city.

The domestic city doesn’t oppose to private, but it ENCOURAGES PRIVATE’S ENGAGEMENT IN THE COMMUNITY. The domestic City doesn’t expose individuals to the multitudes, but it CAPTURES THE MOMENTS OF THE HUAMN BEINGS.


02 [ Consuming with Producing ]

Speculating on the Future of Workat the Brooklyn NavyYard Vertical Factory Individual Work Fall 2016 Ctritic: Laurie Hawkinson

Influenced by the evolving producing technology, the relation between producing and consuming has been largely transformed and will be continuously developing. Consumers, who used to be isolated from the factory, now are able to different roles it: visiting factories as tourists, experiencing the making process as hackers and in the future utilizing the making process as entrepreneurs. Stimulated by the possible interactions between producing and consuming, the project studies how these activities will vertically develop in Brooklyn Navy Yard, a significant industrial park in the risk of flood. The new typology is equipped with effective circulation system to transport people and products. New connection will be established to deliver products to urban and engage urban back into the factory. The proposal speculates a future that the new Navy Yard will become a center for both consuming and producing well engaged into urban context.


Model Photo (Up and Right) Site Strategy (Left) Four new massing will be distributed along the coastline to utilize the marine transportation system for products and visitors. They are expected to become the new center for both producing and consuming. BQXC, a new cargo tram route, will be connected into the urban transportation orbit to deliver products instantly.

Key Driver: New Relation Inspired By Advancing Technology Driver B: Demand for Work Space (Data from Brooklyn Tech Triangle Plan 2015)

To define consumer’s new role in factory, producing process is divided into 4 stages: designing, making, assembling and delivering. In this case, the new relation between consuming and producing will become a gradient. From the bottom of the diagram shows the typical consuming. The upper level demonstrates that consumers

are accessible to join in the design process. Then they are able to experience the making process, become a member frequently hack in the factory, utilize all the technique to make goods for their daily life, and finally accumulate enough experience to establish an entrepreneurship.

Program According to the assumed growing process, programs in the section are categorized into four layers. The distribution of the layers also refers to the properties of different producing process. For example, the conventional making process needs to use larger machines, which inconvenient to be placed on higher floors. The making space will use 3d printers to produce things just in time, so less storage space is re-

quired. In these four layers, consumers will take the roles of Tourism Consumer, Customizing Consumer, Hacker and Maker. These consuming activities will take place in the overlapping area in each layer. Two cores are established to ensure the efficient circulation. They respectively support the transportation of man and goods.

Curating ideas also take important roles. The project digs deep into the liniar development as well as the special moments of chairs history and adopting the curatng ideas to transform the museum space. Architecural elements are transformed to establish the continuing circulation and build up connection between series of hilglighted moments. The project begins with two studies. The first tries to study the systematic changes brought about by the transforation of form. The second one studies the technique used in the Cubism Drawing. Techniques of these studies are further developed in the architecture design.

Influenced by the old and new history, the site was put into collision between tradition and modernity. Large stadium and small traditional houses coexisted with an area of 20 hectares. New houses were toughly inserted between small houses and occupied the public space. Worse and worse living conditions drove the residents away and left the community into chaos. While the conflicts could be utilized. The coexistence of old and new provide different living conditions. Accordingly, both young people and the old could find their niche if the community could be better arranged. Based on the current situation, the design proposes a plan to arrange the patterns and buildings to provide an ideal community. Community is divided into four parts according to the original buildings and the residents characteristics. A public service zone is established to connect the four zones for people to interact.

WALLS ]

Dramatic feelings in CAMPUS THEATER

Campus Theater Design Solo Studio Work Fall 2014 Instructor: Lin Zhe Modern dance is highly variegated. Along with the curves drawn by dancers, dancing could be graceful and powerful, tight and unrestrained. Such dramatic effects could be created by walls. Walls are the medium of light, sight and circulation in space. Ramping slowly along the long curved wall, audiences can feel the continuous changes of light and shade. Walking across the walls, audience would enter different space in sequence. Base on this idea, the explorations researched on the form of walls and the relationship in between walls. Through these techniques, space and light exhibit the difference between soft and hard. The design attempts to conform the space quality to the function of theater. The space variety created by walls reflects and celebrates the quality of modern dance, inspiring both audiences and actors before the show begins.


DISCRETENESS TO CONTINUITY

VARIETY IN CONTINUITY

Project primitively focused on the motion of modern dancers. The graceful movements, curve gestures and rhythm of the dance are consequences of different actions frame by frame.

On one hand, Minute changes along continuous walls would make varieties. On the other hand, walls have the nature of leading circulation as well as separating spaces. Consequently different spatial structure would be created through the operation on wall gestures and their combinations.

Radian The radian of curve would implicate people to move or stay.

Single curve & Path A long wall spontaneously lead movements. Any difference on the wall would easily interrupt the movement. Photos captured from <Pine Smoke > by Cloud Gate

Closed Curve When the dancer's movements draw an intact curve whose central angle is more than 180°ďź&#x152;it conveys the message that the show is about to pause

Two curves & Room The combination of walls would define room in between. Gestures of the walls would make impact on the spatial quality.

Incomplete Curve

Curves & Hierarchy

Dancers often use the unstrained movements to show strength. The unclosed curves lead audience to expect the next motion.

Utilizing the walls nature of leading and separating, spatial structure would be created with a group of walls.


EVOKE THE HISTORIC CONTEXT The theater locates in a university with well-preserved historic buildings. On one hand, it takes the responsibility of connecting the surrounding buildings to make the circulation more convenient. On the other hand,it is the catalyst of an active environment.

The theater is not only accessible to people from all directions, but also available for students to go across.

Compared with the curved walls, a straight bridge serves to connect the historic buildings directly.

Walls separate the site and organize the space in sequence, making audiences step by step enter the state of watching.

The unique form language makes the theater stand out to be the land mark of the campus.


CURVE CONTROL Radian and length of walls need to be elaborately considered. Such data directly make impact on the distance of entering the auditorium hall, the spatial quality of room in between walls and light and shade in the space.

PRESUPPOSED PATHS Some paths are especially designed. They are the paths for students to enter the auditorium hall from campus ( Path A&D) , path for audiences await in the foyer to enter the hall( Path C) and path for actors to get on stage (Path B).Their spatial quality would be demonstrated in the following pages.

Interact activities for ARCHITECTURE SCHOOL Architecture School Design Solo Studio Work Fall 2013 Instructor: Miao Jun Architecture is a discipline which not only requires students to work on their own projects, but also encourages students to communicate with people of other fields. Consequently it is important for architecture school building to provide opportunities for different people to interact. Floor slabs provide platforms for activities. Different groups pf people tend to work in respective area. When the slabs are overlapped, chances for people to communicate are created. The design digs in the possibilities of overlapping floors to propose an architecture school building in which different people could interact easily.


SCHOOL OF INTERACTION The design provide platforms for researchers to study, for students to work on their assignments and shortcuts for passers-by. Through overlapping their activity holders horizontally and vertically, people could interact with others in the same floors as well as from different floors.

A TRANSIT CENTER more than field Transit Center Design Team Work Fall 2013 Collaborator: SUN ye Instructor: LIN Jiayi Contribution: Chief Design, Technical Drawings, Architectural Representation, Physical Model

Site locates in Fang Cun Village, Guangzhou, where the metro goes on the ground and the railway separates the residential areas in two sides. Besides, a terminal station is expected to be constructed nearby. Base on the circumstance, the design proposes a hybrid transit center to combine the two programs. As the infrastructure frequently used by civilians every day, a transit center should be a field rather that an object so that people could easily access. Such an open

and accessible architecture also has the advantage of connecting surrounding areas. In this design, roof is used as the dominant element to create the field. Except for simply providing shade, form of roof could also give implication about how to use the space beneath. This assumption makes it possible for roof to create space of different characters. The project digs into the nature of roof and attempts to provide space for walking and staying, public and private, by means of operating roof.


FROM OBJECT TO FIELD

PHYSICAL & SPATIAL STRUCTURE

Railway and the original station cut the residential area into two parts. To reconnect two areas, the new design removes the barrier and uses roof as the dominant element to create a more accessible space. Terminal station and some public facilities are also compounded to create an urban hall.

Structure of roof will directly influence form of roof and then make effects on activity patterns. In reverse, new demand of the space would also affect the structure. Structural unit

Form of roof will suggest the space character and guide people's behaviors. In return, the activities beneath the roof could help shape the form. As the activities in the platform (ground floor) and the activity ground (second floor) show different pattern, the form of roof need to be carefully operated. On one hand, the roof should imply the direction of metros and buses. On the other hand, the roof needs to serve as enclosure of rooms.
