“Phases of Water” is a is a public art project located in the Building of Science, National Cheng Kung University(NCKU), Tainan, Taiwan. Water, the fundamental understanding of science, is used as the concept in this project. Three phases of water are represented by geometric composition with 3 different materials. Capturing spatial characteristics from artists’ sense of environment, 3 places, as an important part of performing, are chosen in responding to the 3 phases of water.
Path of Sunrise is a project which mainly focuses on exploring Hsinchu, from brand identity, route planning, user experience design, signage design and website integration. Let tourists can proceed without hindrance and enjoy the beauty of Hsinchu.
The color of doorplates is inspired by the research “Searching for color of Matsu”. The sea color around Dongyin is a mix of pale blue-green with hints of grey. Usually each doorplate needs a single template. Our production method, however, greatly reduced the cost of manufacturing a single plate, from 400 to 14. Considering the strong wind of Matsu and the granite surface of Matsu Stone is uneven, and the divided doorplates can reduce the potential risk of falling due to incomplete attachment.
“MAC Ward Innovative Design”is focusing on user needs, medical application, modular design, and production method.
Using recyclable and reusable materials, the design allows general ward to transform into isolation, negative pressure, and intensive care ward within 48 hours; it is the best solution of pandemic prevention as it can be easily assembled and disassembled, and can be set up anywhere.
YELLOW OBJECTS – A poster rally against social injustice and fighting for freedom
Since June 2019, the growingly authoritarian Hong Kong government showed no signs of backing down, so do Hongkongers.

A 57-year-old building is renovated to be home for NPO HUB Taipei, aiming to nurture impact organizations and social innovation entrepreneurs, catalyze collaboration and drive social change, under the public-private partnership.
Using perspective method and metal rack to create virtual and real depth of frame system in responding to the characteristics of the site. As the site used to be a port of Tainan Canal, with memories related to waterfront events, flow shapes and wave images are used as common pattern language in the exhibition. The light and shadow, also creating perspective effect, are brought in as one of the elements performing the time stream of this place since the age of 1800s.
PUBLIC WATER FILTER is a water filter and UV sterilizer that does not require an external power source. It can be used in disadvantaged areas that are difficult to get water, and where the water is easily contaminated by bacteria and sediment. PWF provides the main material, filter bucket, and rotating UV light module to improve water pollution, reduce the incidence of disease and death, and enhance local life quality in the form of a combination package. Users can join the local natural filter material to build the PWF device and filter the water resources by rotating the PWF.
ICatemaco, a town founded on the shores of a lake, which bears its name, has been characterized from the beginning by a mystical connection filled with legends and providing diverse ways of survival for the inhabitants of the town, taking advantage of fishing and tourism in the present day, putting Catemaco on the map as a town full of ecotourism.
The following project re-imagines the interaction of the town of Catemaco with the lake, allowing the town to improve its economy by taking advantage of and caring for its natural environment.
Catemaco’s Pier Park offers the opportunity to link environmental aspects with urban aspects for the economic improvement of the town using elements typical of the area, vernacular architecture, and natural systems for the purification of water.
As has been learned over the centuries, nature can teach us how to counteract the secondary effects caused by human activity. Catemaco’s Pier Park proposes a series of natural processes that lead to the purification of the coast, imitating the wetland system for the filtration of water into the lake and the elimination of excess contaminants with natural purification systems.
