EXP3 SUBMISSION: The Elevators and Dinning Table

Looking up at Angela Merkel's elevator.

Inside Helen Keller's glass elevator.

The dinning table for both clients to meet on valley floor, the design of this table shows strong idea of power.

EXP3 SUBMISSION: 5 Real Time Image Captures

An overall view of the bridge design, on the left is Helen Keller’s office and the right is Angela Merkel’s office. Elevators will land from client’s office to the landing area above water, and they will walk to the table area.

The idea for Helen Keller’s office is the curve shape connecting and link with different structural shows the change in her lifetime, how she’s disabled but strong and powerful. The warm lighting indicates that she’s a peaceful and quiet person.

Angela Merkel is always known as a powerful woman, her office is designed with strong shapes that’s sharp and detectable which clearly shows her personality and her job.

Looking into Angela Merkel’s office, the distinctness of wall textures and cool blue light gives the feel of sharp and clear.

Looking into Helen Keller’s office feel the warmth, calm, but strong shapes.

EXP3: Helen Keller Valley

Yosemite Valley, California, U.S.A


Over the past four years Angela Merkel has had to steer Germany through some difficult times, but remains very popular just like Miranda Kerr she is now a world-famous supermodel and Helen Keller the world-renowned advocate for the deaf and the blind. Angela Merkel spruced up her appearance, wearing bright colours and sporting more stylish hairstyles with Miranda yesterday stepped out in New York in a more demure, full-length white gown at auction house Christie's A Bid To Save The Earth charity auction. The image, released by the New England Historic Genealogical Society with one US blogger saying to Miranda "that it reminds me of a high school dress circa 2001 which I'm pretty sure isn't the look she's going for" and Some people said Angela Merkel was boring and provincial, but they underestimated her, He admitted he had no idea how much of a stir the photograph would create, saying: "I never thought much about it. It just seemed like something no one would find very interesting." But all this has not bother them Angela Merkel established herself in the party, rising through the ranks until she was chosen to lead it in 2000 and was elected Germany's first female chancellor in 2005.

EXP2 SUBMISSION: Applied Textures

EXP2 SUBMISSION: Final Resolution

The left bottom space is a lab designed for Nicole Kuepper, based on her quote of saying ‘two billion people around the world have no access to reliable electricity’, in a environment natural and simple like this, only solar energy can be used, therefore gives her the opportunity to experience working in a such condition that is relevant to her experiment.
The right top end space is a lab designed for Charles Darwin, he likes explore and research about the nature. The form of his lab is more looking unstable then Nicole Kuepper’s, this idea came from Darwin’s quote of many important words that influence my design: ‘struggle for survival, earth, natural life, wild landscape, adapting themselves best to their environment.’

The space on middle bottom where it extent out from the labs and set in between of two different landforms, is where Nicole Kuepper and Charles Darwin might meet and exchange ideas.

For clients to meet up at the meeting area, they have to walk through a mountain like landform around the rocks from back of their labs to the meeting space at front. Darwin’s landform is longer than Kuepper because Darwin enjoys walking around natural and explore.

EXP2: Captured Images From Crysis Wars Environment

EXP2: A Image From Lecture- The Black Box

This is an image from Russell’s lecture on slide 50. I chose this image because it shows an imaginative free form structural by just using simple shapes and prisms. The way that every single shape bond and link with each other is very interesting, then overall it formed this particular shape shadow. This image lead me ideas for my design that I can explore more techniques of intersecting and combing of the 9 prisms into a more free form structural while think about interesting spaces and human scale.

"In the struggle for survival, the fittest win out at the expense of their rivals because they succeed in adapting themselves best to their environment."


Two billion people around the world have no access to reliable electricity, struggle for survival the fittest win out at the expense of their rivals. Imagine if this could be provided with energy that was both cheap and green and adapting themselves best to their environment.

Experiment One Submission

Experiment One Submission



An external overall view of the building, part of the roof with custom texture applied. This is my second scheme based on Goodwin and Swallow; I have the word ‘struggle’ for above ground artist Goodwin, this is how I came up with the complicated and interesting structural roof design. The building also have a large area of glass, this is for natural sun lights from roof, and street view into the gallery space on ground floor.

Looking at ground floor gallery space and above floor studio space. Custom textures are applied on back wall which continual through both floor and on stair treads.
The design of my stair integrates with the external building designs which again comply with the word ‘struggle’. The stair is supported by brace structure from above floor base which also acts as balustrades.

Down to the underground studio space, custom textures are applied on one main wall of the studio. Blue colored mainly glass structured staircase are designed for Swallow, the studio space also have natural sunlight ventilations from ground floor.
