is its problematic envelope design and consequent fluctuated indoor environment. Limited expression also labels it as “a cheap hut for workers”.

This research project overcomes the problems by introducing a fully insulated envelope system and stabilizing the indoor environ-ment with an aid from high thermal capacity material, such as concrete foundation or paver, masonry inter-nal partition walls.

Whole system duration can be extended by galvanized steel com-ponents protected by envelope and separated from the ground humidity. Its fire-proofing capability can also be increased through ap-propriate surface material selection. The load bearing skeleton, bracing component and assembly process are redesigned as well in order to

support the envelope improvement.

Parameters like material selection, surface treatment and distribution affecting the expression will be articulated. The project searches for a unity expression formed with dif-ferentiated unit.

Some crucial improvements was re-alized in a mock up building in May of 2009 and thermal testing data is under collection.

The improved comfort, varied ex-pression, low cost, longer duration plus fast construction speed may guarantee the system as a more satisfactory product and being ap-plied to a wider situation.

The research project aims at im-proving the thermal performance and envelope expression of a low-cost light gauge steel prefabricated system and applying it for more durable situation, small-scale rural school for instance.

This existing prefabricated system uses light gauge steel with C profile as load bearing frame at a equal spacing of 1.82m. Both the skeleton and in-filled envelope panels are manufactured in factory and assem-bled on site. The construction can be completed within several days and reach up to 3 stories easily.

This system is widely used for tem-porary and low-budget program, such as construction site office, dor-mitory, or even emergency housing for disaster area. A common problem of this system

A SPATIAL STRUCTURE OF STRESSED-PANELS

zhujx I research I conceiving I pII-5

Spatial structure of stressed-panels offer new articulated tectonics benefits. Structure consist of verti-cal and horizontal panels. The panels define cellular spaces. All panel con-nections are at a point or segmental line and pre-stressed. The system performs as a whole when benefits of pre-stressing are utilized to the full extent.

The panels define cellular spaces within and can cover large space underneath. The whole structure can be either supported on the periphery or cantilevered from inside the central area. The supports can be organized freely in accord with foundation and spatial require-ment at the ground level. Indepen-dent panels or a volume defined by vertical panels can increase the lateral resistance of the structural configuration.

Stressed panel spatial structure was conceived and developed along two tracks: a case study revealing the structure principle, a general program requirement. Case study on the selected contemporary Swiss cases, like Volta school and Ottoplatz building by Juerg Conzett, introduced the basic issue and gen-eral principle. The program called for the combination of service apartments with a community bas-ketball court pushing the designer to observe the accumulated mod-ules, reinterpret the element and search for the structural benefit on a larger scale. Physical modeling and geometric interpretation serve as the primary tool for exploration.

Other than proposing an interest-ing application, this structure system also raises question on space and structure: how to utilize potential stress field within the component,

how to use interaction between the force path and space envelope, how to control various reinforce-ment level of concrete panels with a same look.

This research makes an overview on the accomplishments achieved by the pioneer structural engineers since the Industrial Revolution in or-der to summarizes the ideal of engi-neering and the realizing approach. The research collects precedents and conducts formal study on de-sign concept and developing strat-egy with the aids from researcher’s engineer colleagues. The research shows that the ideals of the pioneer engineers since the Industrial Revolution can be catego-rized into three stages: Sprout, Ma-turity and Autonomy. These stages are distinguished according to the course of the Industrial Revolu-tion and the massive emergence of those innovative structural engi-neers, including Robert Stephenson, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, John Roebling, Gustave Eiffel, Benjamin Baker and Robert Maillart, who

gradually developed philosophies on bridge constructions.

Another part of the study focus mainly on how structural concepts of engineers waked up architect in the process of its maturity and Autonomy. Those engineers, who have devoted to the high-rise build-ings design during the 1st & 2nd Chicago School peroid and the long-span structures design after the World War II, become the main research objectives. The chosen figures include Louis Sullivan, John Wellborn Root, Pier Luigi Nervi and Fazlur Khan.

The research summarizes the ideals of the structural design as: to assure the security, to strive for the effi-ciency, to be elegant and to gener-ate a new spatial experience. These ideals could not only become the criterion of evaluating a design, but

are the necessary steps for design-ers to achieve an convincing result. Through reviewing the history and analysis, the research also outlines the split of the architecture and structure disciplines, its influence and some conditions for architect and engineer’s reunion.

The significance of this research in present Great China context is to provide the architecture develop-ment a viewing angle which has long been ignored, together with some bridging methods for the existing gap between two fields. The contribution of this research can also be found in the experimental studio teaching - “Forming Space from a Structure Idea”, from where students are able to design articu-lated scheme in confrontation with both structural and spatial needs.

hospital and two other comparative clinical buildings, which have similar situation and constructed during the same period. The data analysis lead to the following discoveries: the indoor lighting environment of the new ward is ideal and out-standing, the natural light is more evenly distributed than other two. The new clinic building of YCTMH has the lowest indoor temperature in summer time, which is closer to the comfort zone, while the winters record also the lowest but far from the comfort zone. Its temperature fluctuation is lowest among all three hospitals.

These observations are later con-firmed or reviewed with the aid of ECOTECT simulation.

The research also discovers the re-lationship among the collected data and the design strategy. Architect

emphasized more on the exchange / use tactic rather than insulation / preservation of the energy. This strategy should be improved by in-troducing a thicker and continuous insulation layer in the lateral design.

This is a research project sponsored by the Chinese University of Hong Kong.

The researcher conducted a post-ocupancy test in this project, in order to evaluate the effectiveness of a ward unit, which was designed and applied for the new clinic building of YCTMH during 2001-2005. This ward unit has a com-pact sanitary core attached to the climate boarder side and is aiming to achieve a more comfort indoor environment for the similar high-rise building type located in the China’s cold-winter and hot-summer region.

This research focuses on the indoor performance evaluation of the ac-tual ward unit. The qualitative evalu-ation was conducted with the aid of on-site observation, record and interview. The quantitative one was operated based on the measuring and testing conducted in 2006 sum-mer and 2007 winter, which re-corded the indoor temperature and illuminance real-time changes of the

SPATIAL INTENTION OF BARCELONA GERMAN PAVIL-ION AND ITS MATERIALIZATION

hidden principal of space design.

The deduced result is supported by materiality of space, like color, pattern and texture. They were first conceived in the design stage, then modified in the construction phase by the architect.

How such arrangement guides hu-man behaviors like entering, moving or staying, and how the intension brings new experience on visual and tactile aspects distinguish Mies Van der Rohe from both the mod-ern and classic architects.

The finding can be summarized as such: to differentiate for diversify-ing rather than for contrasting; to juxtapose for restoring rather than for mixing.

The pavilion has two parts, differen-tiated as a room and a yard, while

the room side has an inner court and the yard side an annex room. The envelope and material of the two parts are not further separat-ing the two types of space, but cre-ating a subtle and changing connec-tion. Visual focus on the room side has onyx wall and a bronze statue, while yard side a peaceful pool plus a mystery opening leading to the annex. The pool configures a com-pulsory path of L shape to annex, while a move to statue is suggested by 2 gaps between glazings on room side. The convoluted feel-ing guests of early 20th century or even visitors of our times requests a novel personal understanding on this place.

The research approach and findings are taught to students in the elec-tive course.

This research aims at deducing the spatial intention of Barcelona Ger-man Pavilion by Mies Van Der Rohe through an analysis on its material-ization process.

An early on-site observation pro-voked some initial ideas. A following graphic readings provided more evidences. The collected historic images and construction story depicted in “Mies Van Der Rohe Barcelona Pavilion” by Ignasi de Sola-morales, gave more concrete proofs on the topic.

The research output has several parts. The first one is a description on the location and shape of physi-cal components, such as wall, roof, plinth, furniture and statues. Then the organizing means like dividing, enclosing or composition and classic design controls like proportion, grid, module are discussed for finding a

SPATIAL ORGANIZATION STRATEGY IN HONG KONG TEMPORARY BAMBOO THEATRE2006 - 2008

During 2006 and 2007, 26 venues of such events were visited and investigated. Collected data are illus-trated with diagrams, drawings and models for visualizing the hidden principals and consequent order.

The research summarize the urban distribution, construction of this structure type, its contextual im-pacts and associations with social communities through carefully-designed program.

A typical spatial organization and its variations are shown by the select-ed cases at Fanling, Kowloon City, Ta Hang, Cheung Sha Wang and Aberdeen.

Developed by local shelter build-ers and organizer, this architecture reflects design ideals to use less to generate more, to unite the com-munity through construction, and

to deliver the craftsmanship and permanent opportunities with tem-porary construction. Though rooted in the regional tradition this tempo-rary building type fulfils the spiritual needs of urban nomads.

This is a research project sponsored by the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Special thanks are given to Mr. Sunny Im, an energetic and skillful bamboo master, and his team.

In the hottest month of lunar July each year, Chiu Chow communities throughout Hong Kong would build temporary opera houses and hire opera troupes to pay their annual tribute to the gods, ancestors and console the spirits “released from hell”.

Temporary bamboo and timber structures are assembled for the intensive festival and dismantled afterwards. Basic materials and simple systems minimize cost and maximize adaptability to diverse site and program variations. Visitors are often amazed by the temporari-ness and simplicity of these humble “instant” structures. The skeleton structure and thin envelope create a tight connection between inside and outside, while decorative ban-ner modules and colorful curtains help distinguish the serving and served areas, centre and peripheral.

strong formal control on all levels of scale. They also adopted the same concept in dealing with circulation on sloped land. One recognizable fact is that the flat size of the police quarters is significantly smaller than the precedents. They transform the necessary repetition of the same simple small unit to impres-sive dignified ensembles. The design characteristics of these buildings are emphasized in seven study aspects: Fabric, circulation pattern, unit, roof form, bridge, etc.

Up to now, we have found 7 sites among them, 6 sites have been studied and documented. Of the seven, only two are still inhabited. others are either been demol-ished, currently under demolition, or scheduled for demolition. Their disappearance from the city fabric is a great loss to Hong Kong, espe-cially if their replacement is likely

to be a much lower level of design and when many people are talking about collective memory. This is a research project sponsored by the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Principal investigator is Prof. Gu Daqing, another colleague is Prof. Vito BERTIN

Between 1959 and 1964, Hong Kong’s Public Works Department completed a number of large scale police quarters in a short per-oid of time. These estates have a strong presence in the cityscape and demonstrate a high level of urban and architectural sensitivity and skill. Their architectural quality is on a level with the best buildings anywhere in the world at that time. They demonstrate what architects in Hong Kong were capable of. We should appreciate their work and use these examples as critical refer-ences in our time.

As a type they are related to prec-edents in England by Alison and Pe-ter Smithson and others which are based on the idea of a street in the sky by Le Corbusier. Each of these police quarters is a unique variation of this type, carefully adapted to the specific site conditions, with a

A typological investigation on high-rise hospital ward unit used in China’s hot-summer & cold-winter region was conducted in 2006. More than 20 hospitals, located in Wuhan, Nanjing, Shanghai and Yancheng were visited and record-ed.

The target is to collect enough actual ward unit examples and to distinguish the unit types com-monly used. These examples are documented with standard graphic format for external easy access.

Then the relationship between sani-tary facility, load bearing structure and space organization are analyzed and compared step by step based on a graphic mean.

The investigation is a necessary preparation for evaluating the actual ward unit efficiency on space and

STRUCTURE IN A COSTAL WETLAND TRANSFORMA-TION - THE CASE OF YANCHENG

an normal orthogonal grid changes the wetland step by step. The specific production activity, like fish-ing, farming or salt-making creates characteristic landscape. Following the routine production activity the habitants settle down on the land. Their settlement is gradually devel-oped, enriched, and diversified.

The settlement organization com-plexity and richness has a clear relationship with its geographic distance to the coast. That is to say, the evolution stage of a settlement is associated with its spatial location.

We particularly document two land use extremes: one is to use coastal land to dry the sea water for getting rid of sea salt and con-sequently leave broad desert-like inhabitable land. Another is to use rainy water and regular irrigation to remove the salt from the soil for a

purpose of agriculture planting.

These two process are interrelated for they produce basic human foods. They are also totally different in terms of environmental impact. They differentiate the flat, neutral landscape and finally form a giant buffer area between sea and land.

The research also distinguishes recent threats to these settlements and landscape characters, resulted from the fast and immoderate ur-banization in the last two decades.

Yancheng is located on the coastal area of north Jiangsu province and became a city in 2100 years ago. Its name in Chinese means a salt town or a town making salt. The land here is extremely flat and keep increas-ing along a shore due to deposited alluvium of the Yangtze River. The city has 600,000 citizens and the economy is dominated by agricul-ture, slat making and fishing.

Through an investigation and analytical reading on coastal land-scape and settlements, the linear settlement type and its variations are recorded with diagrams, draw-ings and models, from which the infrastructure, settlement structure, internal structure, their relationships and transforming dynamic in this area are uncovered.

The infrastructure construction driven by the costal land use under
