As the establishment of Xiong’an is a long term planning, Xiong’an is goingto build a future city seeking the new mode to optimize the development of high-density areas. Currently it has been under construction as in “China speed”, the built-up areas were decentralized like towns or villages. The central area of a city always accompanies […]Read more "Presentation for Vennice Biennale"
As the establishment of Xiong’an is a long term planning, Xiong’an is going to build a future city seeking the new mode to optimize the development of high-density areas. Currently it is definitely not a high density area according to the diagram, the built-up areas were decentralized like towns or villages. And due to the […]Read more "Final Presentation: Design for people in Xiongan"
In the red line is a patch of Xiong’an’ s building area, where according to the prediction of population that the pop-density would achieve 6,700 person/km2, almost the same as Tokyo. Those highlight areas can be possibliely high density areas too, so I extract the color lightness as buiding/block height, shaping a city like a […]Read more "Morphing a Mosaic City"
Highlight the feature of Nakano we can tell there is a patern of the building height in the central area of Nakano, that buidings alongside the road is relatively higher than the others. If we have the Nakano buiding height transferred onto the satellite map of Xiongan, it will be shaped into blocks with color. […]Read more "Transferring pop-density of Nakano to Xiongan"
New paterns with clearer structure were applied to different map styles, watercolor grid, colored contour line, and satellite image as well. Before I create my own field patern, I find some image samples that might make sense. Subdivision paterns with clear structure works well. Contour line to give the model a strong structure. Add several […]Read more "Style transfer to 3D modeling"
As the establishment of Xiong’an is a long term planning made by the Central Committe, to support the planning and construction of Xiong’an New Area, the project group from Chinese Academy of Science (CAS), made a study based on the remote sensing data obtained from satellite and unmaned aircraft. Here below is some imformation from […]Read more "Population Prediction on Xiong’an"
Smaller blocks with walkable roads actually have the capacity of population that equals huge blocks with wider roads and high rises. In which the later one produce traffice jam more frenquently. In Tokyo the percentage of aged persons exceeded the United Nations standard of 14% for an “aged society” in 1998, and is now approaching […]Read more "Population research on Tokyo and Los Angels"
Typical cities were selected as examples in the research of urban morphing analyse, to try to figure out how those basic elements were fabricated in the city. Salient elements that are looks differently on map: There is an obvious contrast between the factory areas and residential areas.Read more "New Fields"

Corresponding with The End of Theory by Richard Bookstaber that ‘we no longer need to find ways to build models ‘, ‘in the era of big data that correlation is enough’, which is exactly the core of deep learning. Using the invetion of world wide web that James Bridle view as the result of Moore’s […]Read more "Star Yan on Bridle, James: New Dark Age: Chapter 4 Calculation"
Research questions in the future city Xiong’an. By transferring different cities to Xiong’an in diferent scales to try to find inspiration points.Read more "Research Questions"
Here is all the Neural Network style transfer experiments. Unlike Vennice and Detroit and other cities on the right that have simple paterns fibering the texture of city, I also choose the first two maps that are of Tokyo with areas differ in densities(central area and urban area) and building scales(high rises and villas), and […]Read more "Transfer"
From objects to fields Thanks to technology, like we just discussed, that nowadays interesting shapes with simple structure can be easily created by computer modeling. Sometimes we can even have unexpected outcomings. Every single object is by slightly modified from a sphere, only after several times of mirroring and combination we have various of elements […]Read more "Techniques"
This article first explains the necessity and inevitability of the emergence of the “Steam Age” in history from the perspective of historical materialism, that is, the pace of scientific and technological development and social progress is unstoppable. The invention of the world wide web is a good example, despite its inventor Tim Berners Lee’s story […]Read more "Star Yan on Bridle, James: New Dark Age: Chapter 4 Calculation"
