The central concept is to design a green vertical city, which is a package of all facilities that a residential building needs, otherwise those residentials will be dormitories. The project in the southwest of Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The project is located in Saint-Henri neighbourhood which is known as a post-industrial zone with industrial morphology. Based on the analysis done in the climate, the wind is known as a serious problem in North American cities especially in winter. So, we decided to use wind as an element which revolutionizes the concept. The initial volume is divided into several cubes, and while the wind pushes the cubes in different directions, it shapes them. Since the wind is an invisible element which revolutionizes the volume, this project is called “Invisible Revolution.”
Tabriz, historically capital of merchants, a world heritage maze and one of the most important commercial center on the Silk Road, is also a sprawling city facing many urban challenges including social disparities, aging population, air pollutions and shrinkage of its water resource. Baghe Shomal Park is the first of its kind in Tabriz designed specifically as an answer to social exclusiveness, climate change and environmental challenges. This 10-hectare Eco-park, located in the center of a high-density urban area seeks to promote a participatory system with local community and provide a recreational and natural escape for the citizens. It envisions a new form of park which combines ecological conservation with the function of creating an urban lung, a solution to future urban challenges.
The project site is along the Taohe river. We inspired by water. Water is the source of all life, and the Taohe river is like a mother to the people of Lintao. Our design is integrating with the natural landscaping and with the modern touch, and we are promoting the local culture to the world and paying the respect of nature at the same time.
The project has; two Convention centers, A 5-start hotel, office buildings, shopping street and distribution center for agriculture food.
MOMENTUM- the quantity of motion of a moving body, measured as a product of its mass and velocity.
The bridge is designed to have bothway circulation: with 2 lanes dedicated for vehicle circulation on each direction, this will certainly minimize and share the load of traffic. A green promenade for pedestrians and cyclists is designed on the upper level, allowing them to enjoy the panoramic view from the bridge.
Our design is focusing not only on the hospital but also outside the hospital. In the past, medical care was meant to relieve some symptoms and treat a disease, such as the need to go to the hospital for an operation, and now the hospital or health organization is to make people healthy. Therefore, the concept of “patient-centered” is not only used in hospitals but also extends beyond hospitals. Under such a concept, the ward will no longer be a place for patients to rest. It should also be a place for patients and their families to interact with healthcare workers to ensure that they remain healthy after leaving the hospital. In this sense, the ward is more like a classroom.
The Concept inspiration was the traditional Chinese architectural space skin texture. According to our analysis of the traditional Chinese architecture, in traditional buildings, indoor space and outdoor space organically unifies in together. The spatial pattern, profoundly affected the Chinese life habits and interpersonal communication. So we will be the traditional combination of indoor space and outdoor space arrangement way, the introduction of our design, to inherit the essence of traditional Chinese architecture.
As it was a three-story house, I was worried about how to design the structure. The first layer is reinforced concrete and the second and third layers are wood structures. It is a rare structure in Korea, and it will be proposed as a good alternative in the future. I did not make the whole RC structure. The reason that the 2nd and 3rd floors made wood structure, not only to secure space but also to use the eco-friendly wooden material for the mother’s health.
