藝術展華埠: Chinatown’s Public Art

藝術展華埠: Chinatown’s Public Art 

藝術展華埠: Chinatown’s Public Art was on view at 41 Ross from August 9 – 26, 2018. This exhibit featured the ways that art has defined and beautified the Chinatown neighborhood — from the colorful murals, to pagoda-styled architecture, to the everyday practices of tai chi and Cantonese opera performed on the streets and parks. The gallery also became a studio for a new mosaic mural in progress, created by the youth of Chinatown Community Development Center working with visual artist Margarita Soyfertis.  Chinatown’s Public Art explored how artists and community members enhance the neighborhood through creative expressions, often incorporating community history and cultural traditions, so that people view the neighborhood in new and memorable ways.

Wuhan Disaster Prevention and Experience Theme Park Planning and Design

In recent decades, various types of disasters are becoming more frequent as well as their degree of harm are becoming more serious. However, people’s disaster prevention awareness and knowledge are extremely deficient. Taking propaganda education of disaster prevention is becoming the key issue to be solved, whether in awareness or specific skills.
We are planning and design a theme park on this base. The disaster prevention park will take disaster education and training as main body, integrate leisure entertainment, science, history and ecological restoration at the same time, which can also work as a refuge when real disaster happens.

New York City Walkability Analysis

1. General Overview

Walking is not only a traveling option but a way of life. “America’s most walkable cities are also among America’s most sustainable cities, its healthiest and most prosperous communities and its happiest places.” With fewer energy consuming, less pollution, people got better access to various facilities and more open space.

Recently, “America Walks has updated its list of America’s Most Walkable Cities.” New York City’s Walk Score is an“impressive 85 out of 100, with 90% of its neighborhoods ranking highly for walkability.” This report starts from a general overview of the existing condition of walkability in New York City, and then zoom in to a small scale to further explore what elements and how they contribute to the walking environment.context map
