When equipped with supports and anchors, the paved ground becomes a landscape of offering that affords various transformations. They offer the chance for people to claim the street from cars by erecting lightweight structures. Overtime, this appropriation can possibly be ritualized.White bloom sceSambucuhdeisuinux Fras austrs of nt in flowe late May elderflow ers rin with hea g season and early Jun give off e.

The gentle slope of the retention lake is paved with openwork brick paving woven into a steel mesh. The paved ground gradually disappears into the earth. Some wanderers get distracted by mist and plants on the way to their destinations.Rainwater falls from the canopies into the pebble drain on the street. It flows to the rainwater gardens.When water level exceeds a certain height, the cleaner rainwater (second flush) overflows and enters the filter planters by the road.Water on the paved ground either seaps through open joints between bricks or flows to the water channels. It is then guided to the circular retention ponds.The most contaminated water (first flush) enters the existing city sewage system.The purified water is reused in the fog system.

Narcissus saw in the calm pool of water a face not of his own. When basin becomes flooded during months of heavy rainfall, the retained water temporally limits the accessibility of the landscape.

We imagine an institution that can be experienced from within, from the very heart of the headquarters. The order of the institution would unfold itself layer by layer as one enters. Along the axis that connects the Central Station to Klingenpark is a long entrance hall. Through the hall police staff distribute themselves into passages on either sides which lead them to the office spaces. We imagine a ceiling of filigree construction of great depth that hovers above the grand space like a cloud; a structure that adds lightness and airiness to the usually tense atmosphere of a government institution. The timber arches branch off to finer filaments that are interwoven together to resemble the canopies of a dense forest and dissolve into the sunlight pouring in from above. A curtain of bronze flutings hang over the facade, continuing the momentum of the filigree roof construction. . As if lifting up the curtain of a play, the crowd is drawn into the offices on the ground floor. This project is the result of a close collaboration with my project partner in all stages.ETH Z端rich 2014 Spring Supervisor: Prof. Adam Caruso Project partner : Peiping Che(top) Schwarzplan (bottom) Section across Hauptbahnhof and Sihlquai1: 50 model of the entrance hallSite plan1:50 elevation model, elevation, GF plan, section of the entrance hallHouse Vision China at the 15th Venice Architecture Biennale House of SpontaneityOur proposal explores the performative dimension of rituals that endow the spatial and material qualities of the ‘house’ with the personal meaning of ‘home’. House of Spontaneity delves into the ways individual’s routines of habitation shape the definition of a house, and it does so by looking at the fundamental relations among people, modes of living and interior systems. House of Spontaneity features a family of “behavioural objects” designed to accommodate more than one modality of use at the same time. Based on extensive research of visual literature from present and past, the resulting object-systems respond to selected functions performed in the house, like working, sleeping, socializing etc., yet they offer themselves to various recompositions - by way of their different assemblies, give shape to completely individualized domestic universes. In this project, we had the freedom to initiate our research both collaboratively and independently. I was involved in the research, design, and model-making processes.Trace Architecture Office 2016 Team: Yunhan Lin (leader), Jun Qian (model maker), Cherk Ga LeungThe Process of reconfiguring Chinese characters, collaging and redesigning(top) Sectional view of 1:50 model (bottom) Interior view of 1:50 modelOrt Struktur Hülle Extension of Schulhaus Stettbach Zürich, SwitzerlandSchulhaus Stettbach Year of construction : 1964 - 1967 Architect : Esther Guyer, Rudolf Guyer Landscape Designer : Willi NeukomIn Schulhaus Stettbach, the architects’ desire to expose truthfully its concrete structure goes against the strict building standards established in 1970s after the oil crisis. While its brutalist quality brings a strong character and unique atmoshere to spaces in the school, it causes thermal and moisture problems due to improper insulation of the building envelope. In the new extension I want to recreate the unique atmoshere of the existing school building without compromising its building performance. The brutalist construction of stacking columns on load-bearing walls gives one a feeling of disintegration. One would have the impression that the vertical and horizontal elements barely touch each other. I proposed a structure that binds the horizontal and vertical elements into a more cohesive system.ETH Zürich 2013 Fall Prof. Dietmar Eberle(top) Einsatzmodell (1:500) (below) Interior of entrance hall and sports hall (1:50)FigurplanRossiplanN-S longitudinal sectionModel of the new extension (1:50)Prototype for Collective Housing An Inhabitable Wall Taipei City, TaiwanThe ubiquitous form of generic six-storey building is the basic ‘building block’ of the city of Taipei. This typology, governed by loose building codes, has been altered gradually through individual transformations. The studio document moments of appropriation and apply these ideas as guidelines for design and purposeful strategies. The result is a prototypical housing model developed through extensive model-making at various scales. Experimentation with moulds and the plastic property of concrete gives valuable insight on how to generate forms in a methodical way. As opposed to the repetition of autonomous and homogenous units in the existing generic housing in Taipei, the continuous wall suggests an ambiguous and negotiable ownership of a common infrastructure. Tugged into the undulating concrete wall are public circulation, internal staircases, service rooms and more permanent aspects of living. The left over mass then becomes cavities for electrical and mechanical systems.The University of Hong Kong 2015 Spring Supervisor: John LinGeneric building block of TaipeiProcess of developing a prototypical model from the context(top left) concrete structural models as a collective output of the studio (1:100), concrete models of fragments (1:25)
