new ramp section


After our discuss last time, we decide to change our ramp’s armrest as a hidden armrest and put a hidden light on opposite direction of it.

Also, we use GRP  instead of stainless steel as ramp outside material.

In order to link floor and armrest better, (becaue their materials are different ,PVC and GRP), we put a notch between them.


Edinbuigh Trip

1In Summer holiday, I went to visit Edinbuigh for several days.

It is an ancient and mysterious city, you can see series of different architectural styles on the road. Lots of historical heritages there, such as Edinbuigh Castle, National Cathedral and so on. Also, it owns the most becautiful street of the world — Princes Street.

So, I think it is very worthy of you to have a look.




Edinbuigh Castle located on an extinct,  you could over look the whole view from the castle. It was used as Royal Palace and Military site, such meaningful place it is. I was interested in one o’clock roar of gun,( it is a traditional ceremoney, in order to proofread time. This ceremoney is similar as the tweleve o’clock knock in China, which let me feel so close) a considerable number of visitors will gather here and wait this monent every day.

3This the most expressful place to me — Prison in the Castle. It was a prison to put French soldiers many years ago, it keeps the orginal interior very well, which includes hammocks, clothes issues and foods. You can even smell musty odor here. It looks like you are in this prison at that time and you could image what French soldiers did there.





National Museum is a famious place you have to visit as well.

Dazzling arreys of precious collections in national museum, such as real F1 race, “Dolly” sheep and dinosaur fossils which you chould only see pictures before.

This is a section image about our ramp,which I did by AUTO CAD, so that you chould see some detial and interoir construction about it. Also, you will  know each material more clearly.


And here is an effect image about the heart area by PHOTOSHOP. You could see the aquarium, metal ramp and history  pvc floor more real. By doing so, it is a good idea for you to know the whole effect and material better.



Last week, we have been to London to visit the Free Range exhibition.


10 July 2013


The British Museum which is our first station to visit.This building has a transparent roof connect with the nature which is like our Bus Station project to connect with the weather.They also use a lot of glass corridor to connect each area.


3Then we went to The National Gallery. This is Trafalgar Square in the photo. I really want to go to there when I haven’t arriving in England, because I want to visit the national gallery, especially for Monet. Monet is my favorite painter. He is very good at  landscape painting and the color is very beautiful. It’s very exciting to visit the authentic work by Monet.

5This is a building we passing. I just thought the detail of the sculpture is very beautiful. It has a big different style with China.




This is a good public place I found. The facade of the this building are all the transparent glass. The people who sit in it could have a good rest and have a good feeling with the weather, especially for the sunshine.



Free Range


7There are some different method of exhibition. In the poster, they have the introduction for their project. And the good thing I think is that they also have made the small model of the detail of their project attached in their poster.


DSC_0946_副本This is a interesting model which the designer take apart the Xbox and recombination it to his project model.

Each designer has their own personality to present their  progress or personal profile.


This is my favorite project.

The Pop-up collection

  • The product was Chinese Flowering Tea.
  • The concept was intended to reflect the novelty and the beauty of the product.
  • The idea of using seating as the primary function of the installation, came from the connection of the tea drinking with relaxation.

Degree Show 2013

The degree show of this year was absolutely wonderful; I was attracted by lots of creative and artful works. Also, I learned some great methods which are good for our shows in the future.

  • Model


1)      Model is the most direct way to present our project. It is very useful for everyone to know what you designed from a model.


2)      These models are made of different materials, so that I could know which material is more suitable for our bus station. And the ways they fixed models is helpful for me to think about how to complete our model.


3)      Model details—because a large length scale of bus station, it is hard to let audients see clearly about heart area which we are focus on. By doing so, making another larger scale detail model could highlight our point. And put some small people models inside and outside the model is a good idea to make our model more visually.

  •  Poster


1)      Posters are another important method to present our projects. We could put some plans and elevation pictures which  combine with explaining words so that we chould add professional feelings.

2)      I found some drawings on posters looks so amazing. I thought we could learned the method they used on these drawings. We can put some artful effects on our photos by Photoshop and mix our hand drawings.

  •  Show ways


1)      As each major’s show has different styles, such as architectures’ show leaved me a deep memory. In order to achieve the same effect, we need to design a special style to attract our audients. Including receptions and floor decoration.


2)      Combine 2D and 3D could catch people’s eyes, highlight points and let people know the details.

I quite like this kind of present ways — putting our projects into life sites. I think it is more real and it could let us understand better effect of our design.



This holiday, we went to Liverpool to visit some national museums. There are some exhibitions attracted me a lot from the journey.


I can feel the deveopment of the city from the combination of traditonal and mordern achitecture .


Among all the national museums, the Merseyside Maritime Musuem is the most attractive for me. It is not because the model of Titanic or Other Ships. Actually, I am really interested on the “U-Boat” area in the museum. I learned the “U-Boat” by the German movie “Das-Boat”.


IMG_8635_副本The “U-Boat” is the abbreviation the “Untersee-boot” which means submarine in German. The first U-boat was built in 1906.  The Merseyside Maritime Museum exhibits the design of radio room, torpedo and military goods on U-boat.

It is surprised amazing to design a stable and functional submarine in the 1910s, especially the technology development is relatively poor in that time.


And also, there are many other stories about different ships, such as tragic Titanic and Lusitania. It also has some interaction to let us feeling the sail.

IMG_8644IMG_8632Another museum left us deep impression is the international slavery museum. It’s about life in west Africa.The first main section in the International Slavery Museum.’Life in West Africa’, introduces the continent as the birthplace of human culture and civilisations.


This is a traditional lgbo family compound.This family unit is still very important in Igbo culture in Africa.In earlier times a titled elder usually had more than one wife, so his compound included several buildings.


This is a Museum of Liverpool.National Museums Liverpool intention is for the new venue to tell the story of Liverpool and its people, and reflect the city’s global significance.


On the ground floor, display the Liverpool and Manchester Railway was the world’s first twin-track inter-urban passenger railway in which all the trains were timetabled and ticketed.


IMG_8693The Museum also has a good area named Little Liverpool, a gallery for children under six to interaction.





stair :

A staircase spirals up through an atrium at the heart of the museum, leading to three floors of galleries that exhibit social history and popular culture.


After this journey, it made me interested in the design of the ship, especially  boathouse.
