The theme of the thesis begins with my affection towards anonymous architectures – a vanishing part of Hong Kong’s urban jigsaw puzzle. Whereas the investigation of the thesis starts with a metaphor – by describing these urban elements as “symbionts”. “Architectural Symbionts” in this thesis are anonymous architectures, usually occupied by old local stalls, that were not planned as part of the host’s design ahead of its construction. They are spatially and structurally attached to a host building and are dependent on its infrastructure. The symbionts are unnoticeably hidden and scattered in different urban underrated spaces within the city. - This thesis aims to unveil the overlooked value of this specific type of informalities within the context of Hong Kong. Unlike well-planned top-down urban elements, the symbionts are organic architectures since they are self-initiated by citizens. They showcase the people’s direct responses to the existing urban spatial realm and social conditions. These informalities are an essential part of Hong Kong’s urban jigsaw puzzle, for they contribute to the unique streetscape, and represent the regional characteristics that distinguish the city from any other modern metropolis. They require more attentions and documents before their vanishment within the city. - To enable an easier understanding towards the uniqueness of this specific type of organic architectures, the thesis began with a metaphor – the “Symbionts”. The metaphor is not simply poetic, but the biological term shapes the investigation methodology of the thesis. The strategies of studying biological symbionts are adapted in this thesis as a method to establish the investigation on Architectural Symbionts. By collecting fragments of historical evidence and observing their urban site patterns, the thesis aims to trace the hidden codes and logic behind the “organic” features, and to investigate possible potentials for informalities to be sustained within the urbanised city. It also criticizes the invisible capitalist force that undermines the regional urban characteristics, by imposing homogeneous planning and designs. The thesis further proposes that such methodology of tracing hidden logics behind organic architecture can be applied to sustain of any other urban informalities. By tracing and revealing the mechanisms behind their existence, the thesis highlights their connection to the neighbourhoods and even the entire city. It further highlights their value in utilizing underestimated urban voids, and the way they challenge spatial values by maximizing functionality within limited areas. If the existence of symbionts is mutually beneficial to our city, should we embrace natural invasion? - The thesis is composed of three main parts: 1. A taxonomic documentation on existing symbiotic stalls in a catalogue booklet – to raise public awareness on the vanishing urban fabric. 2. A trace of hidden codes behind the nurturance of symbionts in specific sites – to deconstruct the logic and patterns behind the “organic”. 3. A search on new potentials within the city – to promote the importance of sustaining organic architecture, and to criticize the homogeneous planning and designs that undermines regional urban characteristics.

The Barishal River port in Bangladesh has been a crucial hub for waterway transportation for over 150 years, connecting Dhaka with the southern region. Despite its historical significance, the port faces limited capacity and outdated infrastructure challenges. In a country like Bangladesh where water transportation is essential due to vulnerability to flooding, the port plays a vital role in providing a sustainable mode of transportation. With its strategic location and connectivity, the port offers growth opportunities for riverine tourism and meets evolving demands. Despite the construction of the Padma Bridge in 2022, and the shifting of passengers towards by-road transit, the port remains a key gateway for trade and transportation due to its importance as a transit hub. This thesis proposes reimagining the port terminal so that water transit can be revived with further possibilities by creating a user-friendly masterplan that focuses on seamless connectivity, placemaking, riverbank protection, and establishing the port as a city landmark. To enhance economic growth, it suggests repurposing water terminals for uninterrupted transportation and urban facilities within domestic districts. The concept for this thesis focuses on harmoniously integrating port facilities with the urban fabric and waterfront, creating a public realm that is accessible, safe, inclusive, and sustainable. Inspired by local literature, the design aims to evoke emotion and a sense of place through poetic spaces that reflect the essence of Barishal. These spaces include an inviting entry plaza, rooftop gardens, rain courtyards, riverfront decks, food courts, a promenade, a children's play zone, a tree-shaded reading space, a library & archive, and a historic paddle steamer exhibit, celebrating the scenic beauty and greenery of Barishal. By incorporating elements from famous local poets like Jibananoda Das, the port terminal serves as a gateway that offers visitors a glimpse into the city's culture and history. Through this design approach, the port becomes a unique and immersive experience that showcases the beauty and uniqueness of Barishal. The proposed riverfront promenade, "Jolshiri", connects to nearby "Muktijoddha Park" with walkways, cycle lanes, and floating decks. Pocket spaces along the promenade offer opportunities for vendors, cycle parking, and shaded seating. The terminal's roof design, inspired by the river's waves, features four segments representing fluidity and interconnectedness. Tree-like columns evoke the region's natural beauty, creating a serene atmosphere reminiscent of Barishal's poetic charm. The project includes zoning for passenger terminals, cargo handling, administrative support, parking, a mosque, recreational activities, commercial spaces, and public areas, promoting urban connectivity. The design prioritizes accessibility and walkability through a network of walkways, stairs, bridges, and ramps, meeting sustainable development goal 11.7. Vehicular and pedestrian circulation has been carefully planned to prevent traffic conflicts and ensure smooth arrival and departure. The design includes amenities such as restrooms, seating, food outlets, cafes, and retail shops, along with spacious waiting areas and parking facilities on land and water for passenger and cargo handling efficiency. The project aims to create job opportunities and economic development by offering diverse income-generating facilities within the port. By adopting a collaborative approach, the design strategy supports cultural preservation, boosts tourism, and safeguards the region's heritage. The port is envisioned as a vibrant trade, transit, and recreation center, enhancing connectivity and fostering economic growth while upholding societal, cultural, and environmental values.

嘗試跳脫傳統以「邏輯」的方式做設計,嘗試使用「類比」,如同 Aldo Rossi 描述 Canaletto 的畫作“無法用言語描述”,歷史也不只是由言語描述將事實構成,還有許多事物,包括圖像、物、空間、記憶甚至精神。 迪化街是過去代表台灣的第一街,其空間精神蘊含深厚台灣文化的空間氛圍,所以以迪化街作為空間實驗對象,試著創造出新興的建築但卻擁有過去的氛圍,以至於傳承和復興過去臺灣的精神文化... 基地設立於迪化街城隍廟旁,是整條迪化街起頭的部分,使無論是遊客或是來採買年貨的人,來到迪化街的第一眼、和逛完迪化街離開的最後一眼都是這座建築物,加深人們對迪化街的意象。 空間計畫為展覽空間,過去的舊街道過於狹窄,因此造成有一些表演直接在街上進行,造成嚴重的交通問題,或是過去的布袋戲空間移至隔壁永樂市場9樓使得布袋戲文化館變得只有目的性的人才會底抵達接觸,因此被邊緣,希望建立一座展覽館解決這些問題。 利用手繪去「捕捉」「轉化」「重新解讀」將空間經驗、元素等理性化並轉化成為空間生產的過程,創造出過去迪化街的空間氛圍,遠看是迪化街的建築元素,近看卻是熟悉又陌生,保留舊有的空間氛圍卻又是一座 21 世紀的新建築。例如:遠看是用過去的材料製成(磚塊和洗石子)但建築整體卻是漂浮得感覺(包括磚牆和屋頂空間),導致形成一種周遭老建築力學感是往下的,而這座建築的力學卻是漂浮的,因此造成熟悉又陌生。 以類比的方式讓人們看這座新建築時能夠感受到迪化街的空間氛圍,期許以這座建築為第一範例,讓後續若有人改建或重建位於迪化街的建築,就能夠以此來承傳迪化街的空間氛圍,像是迪化街特有元素的轉化包括牌樓的裝飾、三連窗、狹長的街屋、街道騎樓、拱廊、承重牆等,亦或是過去的承重牆因需承重導致街屋和街屋之間是完全分割,而這座建築保留過去承重牆的分割氛圍,但是空間因是21世紀的鋼柱結構而互相打通使展覽動線順暢。

【应对问题】 本作品主要应对“存量更新”,覆盖城市更新、单体建筑改造两部分工作。 【改造背景】 当今“存量更新”成为城市重要议题,典型现象之一即为:大量90年代所建商圈衰落、高层空置,成为城市商业和公共空间的活力低谷。本作品结合这一典型问题,与“毗邻苏州古城”的独特区位,给出了“高密度城市人群下的苏式理想模型”,作为综合商业、历史、时间性的解答。 【改造目的】 城市更新部分,对于”阊门-石路“片区,即”古城外衰落商圈“的典型,针对性地研究、设计、改造,提出兼顾“节事-日常”的城市更新方案;单体建筑改造部分,选取”石路国际“(20层高层)建筑,即”亟需更新的高层建筑典型“,打造兼顾多种功能与漫游体验的”垂直城市“。 【改造手法】 对于苏州古城的阊门-石路地区,研究其过去作为漕运、交通、商业中心,具有的丰富而深刻的历史价值,总结日常业态升级策略、节庆期间商业机会。从日常-节事的人群活动出发,发展城市更新策略,形成休闲商业环、演艺轴与新节事巡游路线。 在此基础上,对石路步行街中心的石路国际部分建筑进行改造,以中心戏台为核心,将非遗商业、茶场书馆、办公、酒店等业态重新布局,安排城市人流,利用高层景观资源回应阊门景观,采用垂直城市、叠落园林等策略,将苏州的空间形态融入城市商业活动中。 回应日常与节事的转换,建筑设计中步行街、城市书店、大台阶等诸多空间,都将在节庆期间转换为城市事件的舞台。将石路国际单一、封闭、扁平化的状态,转变为:平面适宜漫游,立面展示活动,层间联系丰富的“苏式”容纳公共生活的“垂直万象“。
