Toy Time Capsule

Toy Time Capsule

The main focus around this project was the idea of encapsulating three toys while still allowing to see a significant part from the exterior through the use of forced perspectives. The three toys used in this project were jacks, a rhino and a jeep. The interior shell focused on taking on part of the toy and abstracting it in order to create the shells around each individual toy. For the jeep, the cylindrical form of the wheel was taken and abstracted into more square like shapes, repeated and twisted.

Architecture Landscapism

            Modern urban is a result of developed civilization in human history. However, the space has designed as human-centered and considered being based on human behaviors rather than focusing on the nature and animals. As a result, exploitation of urban areas drove animals out of their home, and cities became devastated space under the dominated society. This project is that thinking about human in the evaluation context, researching animal’s behaviors, and proposing the ideal way in order to seek to coexist in the future urban area.

Campus Canopies

This project is a landscape and architecture combined project. It aims to design a slaughter house within the site of waterman farm. Our group’s idea is using both tree canopies and architecture canopies to manage the whole site. The whole site was designed as a city park to attract more citizens to come for a visit and get to know the process of slaughtering. The design of architecture canopy breaks the boundary between the architecture and landscape.

Double Dome Study Space


The Dance and Performing Arts Center (DPAC) was designed around three “encounter rooms” and a two traditional theaters. The “encounter rooms” which are inspired by specific dance and performance art routines that are meant to enhance the routines and engage the audience with the performance more than traditional theaters allow. The traditional theaters at DPAC allow for a passerby a series of brief glimpses into the theater and the circulation between the “encounter rooms” enables the visitor views into multiple theaters.


The main idea of the DPAC is the shifting, breaking, and scattering of lines.  This is reflected in the theater and gallery volumes, columns, and circulation.  The entrance circulation is defined by an axis that runs along the front exterior performance space, into the building and out to the exterior amphitheater in the back.  The circulation up to the higher performance spaces is based on the idea of a spiraling path that branches out to each space, with the final destination as a rooftop terrace.  The outer shell is a faceted glass pattern that is separate from the inte
