  1. 1. Helsinki New York City Atlanta Wuyuan Shenzhen Project locationsThe one year academic experiences cultivated my the ability of rational analysis, which makes me think profoundly therelationship between architecture, the user and surroundings. Moreover, all the projected worked on " Model Thinking", whichmeans making physical models during the design process and thinking in three dimension.Besides, I love history from my childhood. It helps me think from different angles and enhance my rational analysis. I usuallyattempted to find the historical value from the site and try to establish ideas based on urban context at very beginning ofprojects, not by feelings. So, I could benifit form advocating of history as skepticism and logical thinking.

  4. 4. Introduction NInitial research of a renowned public pavilion led to adiscovery of its designer’s theoretical and structural intentionsfor the work. Furthermore, this research would inform arearticulating of those values into an entirely new design.This two-part project began with the building of Toyo Ito’s2002 Serpentine Gallery Pavilion, The form of which wasdetermined by a simple geometric algorithm of circumscribingsquares. By puncturing the resultant pattern and wrappingthis concept over and down the four facades, the paviliongardens Ito’s principle of harvesting natural light. Kensington Gardens, 2002 Site PlanCircumscribing Squares Algorithm
  5. 5. Introduction IA decomposition of the 2002 pavilion’s values focuses on its geometric algorithm of expanding and rotating squares. However, the new realization of these ideas considers the introduction of life and engaging the environment. It does so by pushing and pulling the resultant patterns rather than simply puncturing it. Also, this pattern is drawn vertically, allowing the pattern to project through the interior of the building and affect the users’ actions and rests.

  8. 8. IntroductionThe site is bounded by the Carnegie Main Library and the Georgia Pacificbuilding with other mid-rise mercantile buildings from the 1920’s andthe low scale entrance pavilions for the Marta stop. Based on the sitevisiting, I found different kinds of people cross the site everyday, such asbusinessmen, sightseers, pedestrians and homeless people. Therefore, 1I would like to provide a multifunction space to meed different peoplesneed. The space would be simple and elegant in downtown. 2 1 3 Site 4 2 3 4 N Site Plan

The exact location 2 1of the intervention will be at the gap inbetween the edge of the Renzo Piano Wingto the North, and the Restaurant Wine-Tasting Bar to the South. 3For the purpose of the exhibit space withinthe Gallery, the building will house 3 piecesby Artist from a list.

  16. 16. The Artist and Exhibtion in the Gallary Damien Steven Hirst is an English artist, entrepreneur and art collector. He is the most prominent member of the group known as the Young British Artists , who dominated the art scene in Britain during the 1990s. Death is a central theme in Hirsts works. He became famous for a series of artworks in which dead animals are preservedin formaldehyde. The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone 1 2 3 Living, a 14-foot (4.3 m) tiger shark immersed in formaldehyde in a vitrine became the iconic work of British art in the 1990s, and the symbol of Britart worldwide. He has also made "spin paintings," 1 Damien Steven Hirst created on a spinning circular surface, and "spot 2 "Spot" Painting, 1996 paintings", which are rows of randomly coloured 3 Hymn, 2000 circles created by his assistants. 4 The Physical Impossiblity of Death in 4 the Mind of Someone Living, 1992 N First Floor Plan15 Portfolio of Yuxiang Jiang

IntroductionThe site is more civic in nature as it faces TechHigh School, is bounded by a church at the rearand is relatively shielded from the industrial section.It is also more directly connected to single familyneighborhoods. 1 West SideThe basic idea came from tress in the site.
