Prologue

index

Architecture as a Way of Thinking It was when I began to understand that architecture was more about thinking spatially, rather than simply a collection of techniques that my passion truly began to flourish. In the view of an architect, building intercity highways suggests an increasing need for mobility; dismantling of historical relics for commercial development indicates local culture lost; slums located conveniently close to skyscrapers in central cities demonstrate social segregation. In short, space is architects' language and weapon to inspect, interpret and intervene in the construction of the ever-changing world around us. We are faced with an increasingly complex, dynamic and unpredictable world, the boundary of discipline has to be extended to incorporate more knowledge. I see great pontential for architects to engage in the address of various social phenomena. This portfolio is a record of my persistent attempt to respond to multiple questions explored using spatial manifestation. It is one of many answers. THINK BIG, ACT PRACTICALLY.

Project Information Site: MEISHI Rd., BEIJING, P.R.C Area: 93 hectares Design Discription: Held by Beijing Municipal Commission of Urban Planning, this competition called for creative and practical design to optimize streetscape of four selected streets in Beijing, including MEISHI Rd. As a unique street within the historical conservation plan, I envision this project to create an optimal balance between living, commercial and culture. Overlaying various layers of map, we discover patterns and create network of urban life that are closely related to the environment of MEISHI Rd. People are at the core of this project. Walking out of building and onto the street, we observe how people interact with public space and reflect on them to guide our design.

We find that the rhythm of people is in positive correlation with bus stop, where congestion may happen. Also, lots of historical resources remain hidden. We propose to reconstruct the rhythm of people to generate a more efficient and pleasant MEISHI Rd.

Phase 1 aims at making the street friendly for walkers and cyclists. Phase 2 promotes place identity by revealing historical value and finds potential space to be opened up. Finally, integrate the traveling and community system together by inserting hutongs to the interfaces designed in phase 1.

Street has been an important public space through Chinese history. Pleasant street envirnment encourages pedestrians to stay, watch others passing by and enjoy life. We learn from and reflect on the existing condition and identify possible promoting areas for intervention.

Street space is divided into eight different types. In order to introduce activities in public space and lively streetscape, "Islands"(wood board marking spatial boundary) are added according to pattern type. After intervention, by figuring people as music scores, the rhythm of pedestrian flow resembles music pieces with high and low, hurry and slow.

The high density of hutong area leads to low green rate. Thus we decide to tear down dilapidated houses to create a lane for relaxing.

[Commercial Plaza for Tourists]

Besides commercial activity along MEISHI Rd., we want to diffuse toursits further into hutongs. A commercial plaza serves as a focal point at the sightseeing route.

"The alienation of human leads to topsy-turvy society where the true is a moment of false. " "Images becomes the new reality." Guy Debord

02 Spect/Medit-ator | Architecture Studio 5th Year, 2015.9-2015.11 Independent Work Instructor: Wang Hui

Project Information Site: DASHILER Blocks, BEIJING, P.R.C Area: 326 m² Design Discription: In the Society of the Spectacle of Guy Debord (1967), he asserted that "In societies where modern conditions of production prevail, all of life presents itself as an immense accumulation of spectacles". During the process of socialization (Solitude - Social Group - Local Society), humans gradually become spectators of all the images that the society produces. The true peacefulness can only be found in a space like the ancient caves, a place with the least trace of human production. The original goal of the design is to review the process from humans as spectators to meditators. Considering the site location, it becomes a circular gallery that evokes visitors' introspection of the demolition and construction of the old town.

Concept

Projection Projector Faced with a society of spectacle, architects’ role is similar to a projector.

Circulation The space reveals three forms of human existence and materializes them into three overlaped layers.

Traditional Courtyard House A clear spatial structure with increased privacy exists in traditional courtyard house.

Individual

Human as Meditators

Wood structure houses, courtyards, plants are considered to be the spirit of traditional life, thus kept and transformed into the projection as a memento for what has been lost.

"When spectacle is everywhere, humans feel nowhere home. "

enclosure [city] courtyard [community] wood-structure house [solitude]

Existing Condition Compared to the historical texture, lots of additions, legal or illegal occupy courtyard space. Social Group

Local Society

Human as Spectators "All that was once directly lived has become mere representation." "Culture becomes more than a commodity." Guy Debord

The mass construction and sprawl of metropolitans makes people fanatical but alienated from sober introspection. As social animals, humans are in constant contact with each other and thus influenced by each other. In such chaos, meditation can be found only when left alone.

Architects choose what to project based on our judgement, and make it into reality for people to experience. To manifest the double role of human beings (spectators and meditators), visitors spiral inwards from Local Society (City) to Individual (Solitude).

The first layer decides the image it presents to the city. Faced with a dynamic and unstable urban environment, the first layer works as an interactive screen that aroses people's introsepction of the construction in historical area. After the deconstruction, memories can only be found in images.

The second layer is a gallery collecting old photos and objects. Circular form allows visitors to stroll. Buildings and courtyards are interweaved.

"Every place is given its character by certain patterns of events that keep on happening there. " "The more living patterns there are in a place - a room, a building, or a town - the more it comes to life as an entirely, the more it glows, the more it has that selfmaintaining fire which is the quality without a name." Christopher Alexander

03 ARCADIA | Architecture Studio 3th Year, 2014.3-2014.6 Independent Work Instructor: Li Xinggang Published in AC Architeture, 2015.10

Project Information Site: An open space in Tsinghua University, BEIJING, P.R.C Area: 1450 m² Design Discription: The topic of this studio is "Stage for life", which calls for attention on relationships among people, dailylife, architecture and nature. Each student is supposed to create 9 characters and a space with multiple function including studying/working, sleeping, entertaining and meeting/social. For me, the routine and mundane life of ordinary people just like you and me has great value. Architecture adapts to, accommodates, and activates way of living. My characters are all typical people within Tsinghua University. They are brought here and start to perform their dailylife. Arcadia is a stage for this "reality show" and hopefully, one that promotes more possiblities for living.

THE EXPANSION PROVIDES PICNIC SPACE FOR MY FRIENDS THAT CAN SEE BAITASI!

Exhibitioned as part of Baitasi Reborn Project, Beijing Design Week 2015

Project Information Site: Baitasi (The White Pagoda Temple), BEIJING, P.R.C Area: 37 hectares A READING SPOT ABOVE MY ROOF~

COMMUTING WITHOUT DODGING MYSELF IN MOTOR TRAFFIC SAVES TIME!

Design Discription: Baitasi is an important neighborhood in the historical city center of Beijing. Like many other hutong areas its original urban structure has been radically transformed in the last fifty years. A process of gentrification seems inevitable but could it be controlled in a way that it doesn’t necessarily lead to the expulsion of the local community and the complete loss of its urban identity? Data-based design ideas and methodologies are embraced throughout the design process. Starting from mapping and indexing, then prototypes building, to final design proposals. The intervention aims at transforming Baitasi into a new vibrant neighborhood through strategic nodal interventions. The introduction of new urban activators (the elevated platform) will trigger a slow–paced process of urban regeneration which call in question aggressive operations of demolition and reconstruction that has been happening in China.

Project Information Site: -1st floor of Department Building Area: 5m² Design Discription: Unlike the usual method that architects start from function or aesthetics judgement, this studio calls for attention to tectonic - the poetics of construction. The studio required us to build a project within a 2.4m cube, inviting comfortable sitting for 4-5 people. A pair of adjectives discribing spatial experience was choosen beforehand as guide to material and joints selection. Also, sponsored by Häfele Hardware, we were encouraged to explore creative expression of their products. "Tectonic thinking is to create material realities that reveal narrative meaning. Tectonics is to construct with cultural references." Charlotte Bundgaard Image courtesy of Eric Gregory Powell

After the construction, our project was left like an ongoing experiemental installation in the new Department of Architecture of Tsinghua University. Students just love it and they define its usage in their own ways.

2014.6-2014.7 Collaborator: Jackie Yong Leong Shong, Zhou Qiaochu We surveyed and mapped the exsiting folk houses with historical value in the old town of Jinan Province, China. Many of them had been deconstructed or reconstructed, and our work was to protect their images with drawings.

The ecological environment of the site is very fragile, with scattered sanddunes and wetlands. Since the goal of the campsite is to inform children of the interaction between human and nature, all buildings are elevated. Human activities are included in the vertical zoning.
