'Link the Urban Life'

Academic Work 2016

Critic: Songkai Liu

Inspired by the Manhattan proposal made by Raymond Hood, this work is an infrastructure project that can better meet the emerging demand for holding activities like the weekend market or exhibitions into daily life in New York City. ​​

It aims to focus on the way of living, a way of how people can be really involved in life. Like a bridge, but more socially functional, the new building serves as an intermediary and allows for a chronological description of events. It has flexible floor plans that can be passed through. Plenty of activities occurring at the same time. Depending on future requirements, further infrastructure can be added to the existing structure, besides, part of the building can be movable. Similar to a furnished space, the spatial sequence can be adapted and changed as required.
