 P1 – CYCLE HUB

For the first project I worked together with Raluca Turcu for four weeks. We were tasked with designing a cycle hub, a temporary structure that sits in a landscape. From the given area we chose an isolated site with a lot of greenery, away from the main walkway and on top of a hill.

 P2 – LIBRARY

This is a 6 weeks project that we are asked to design a library in Ancoats, a commercial-and-residential mixed area near Manchester city centre that undergoing a redevelopment to become a more lively neighbourhood like Northen Quarter. The quietness in Ancoats inspires me to design a library that uses readers as an architectural element to encourage others to read and guide them how to use different spaces.

P3 – HOUSING

This is a housing project that lasts for 12 weeks. We are asked to develop a housing scheme in Burngreave, a culturally diverse neighbour which is close to Sheffield city centre. During the past three decades, Burngreave is one of the most popular locations for immigrants(particually refugess) to settle in the UK, plus the demand for immigrant accommodation is increasing, I believe an immigrant housing development is suitable in this context. In order to help to maximise the potential of an immigrant housing scheme,1st generation immigrants are also the residence in this community, who are experienced in tackling problems in adapting to this new environment. Their experience is critical in guiding newcomers in adapting to their new life and overcoming other challenges.
