The Traders’ Commune envisages a society of total self-sufficiency that aims to embrace and regenerate the surrounding area. In reaction to the current economic climate and deterioration of outer cities, the project acts as a critique of the development and decline of a failed planning model in Brighton’s suburbia.

Stemming from the enriching life cycle of the organic plant, an inspiring design is proposed for a Taiwan Tower competition.
This natural concept embodies the very essence of the ecosystem within we coexist with, by mimicking the stable and collaborative harmony between trees roots and trunk system anchor and support the entire core of the building. Integrated with intelligent systems, this concept attracts the natural energy of nature and reinvents Cybertecture technology to produce a tower that is remarkable and extraordinary for people to work, visit and take pride in.

Mankind faces a challenge comparable in size with the industrial revolution to build a sustainable society. In order to succeed, we need to learn how to coexist with nature. We propose a building that aims to become a symbol; not of power nor wealth, but of a new era of harmony and interplay between nature and mankind.

This is a remodeling project of the club stadium of the Bulgarianfootball club CSKA Sofia to meet Category four of UEFA stadium standards. It mainly includes a new addition of a visor roof over the existing 22,000 seats. The visor roof can be executed in metal sheathing or lightweight translucent tensioned membranes. The original structure was built in 1923 over dirt banks in the middle of Knyaz Boris’ Garden – the central park in Sofia, the capital city of Bulgaria. The last substantial remodel was completed in 1967.

“Forest of Art”
We proposed a place where a park, facilities and the around environment are mixing together like a forest for Ichiharashi-sui & Choukoku no Oka. The existing building at the site would be renovated to enhance the beautiful scenery of the park in front of the structure. Inside and outside, old and new would be harmonized as one space at the place. The condition could be explained as café ore, which is keeping a taste of coffee and milk, but also create a new taste as café ore.
