The idea starts from a strong gesture as a protection and defense from the sea level rise. With its tilted roof to collect rain water, and cistern underground it can recycle water for daily use and accommodate temporary flood storage for the surrounding areas in major storm events such as Hurricane Sandy.
The building also blends itself to surrounding landscape. Its landscape connects the other parts of city's green spaces and is hoping to be the start point of a Green Corridor.
By sewing together a high school program with the museum program, the project is not only an exhibition or educational project, but also is designated to be a gesture of how we can address sea level rise and climate change.
Urban Strategy: Green Corridor--A start point to create a pedestrian friendly environment by connecting all near by green public spaces
City Space: To create public space as the "city's living-room" and utilize the best street side to serve as commercial or retail space.

Adv. Studio: Imagination
This studio concerns itself with matter, space and the imagination.
From the exploration of wax and plaster, gravity becomes the key to operate on the following model. And imagination is stimulated within the process. Rubbing, from the very beginning turns to a landscape background. Meanwhile, the invisible strings turns to a systematic weaving of architectures. The story of how people live in this labyrinth and how interative we can be with the mountains is depicted in later work.
Lybrinth in the mountain
It can be as big as a mountain, It can be as small as a shell, Either macro or micro.
Inside as organs, outside as megastructures. It is not a prison. But not so easy you could find your way out.
The clue is always on the top.
It is a place where mountains and rivers are believed, inhabitated, utilized and explored. It is a place growing downward, weaving together as a whole.
Power is not released by mega-structures, but the tension between compliance and independence, human and nature.
Amtrek Train Station
With the view of the State House, Providence Place and green space that is identif ied as an essential element of my design, I produced several series of drawings and analytical models. And by transferring from drawings to models and from models to programs, the goal is to construct a train station not only for its functional use, but also a place for citizens to stay and enjoy the city view of Providence. Hopefully, it will contribute to becoming a place with city life.
the Matrix-concept generator The matrix is made by folding paper, and it is a reverse view intensity diagram with the elevated surface.
By focusing on surrounding views and differentiated view intensity received by different parts of the site.
