About Yuting Zhang

"Time is a site for architecture. Architecture, like any other art form, is a representation of time’s actualization, the synchronization of a particular past and a particular present. It also displays the discourse between the architect and the audience in a specific time-space context. However, what distinguishes architecture from other art forms perhaps is its origin of monumental, a gesture of preservation that isolates it from the entropic forces of time."

"Through my study at GSD, I’m attempting to explore different methodology in my design work, to reinterpret historical context, regional feature, local materials, to remain the loci, while also providing potentials and possibilities for the future within different scales."

Yutings' Projects:

1. 1170, Hancock Street -

Damaged by fire in 2013, the Masonic Temple, originally built in 1926 and renovated in the 1970s has been unoccupied for years while sited in a prominent location in Quincy Center. New accessible entry will be introduced to the temple, and additioned terrace will be added to the portico with lighting above the glass to activate the store frontage of Hancock and turn the mysterious temple into a destination in the city center for food and beverage.

2. MIT Ziggurat Renovation -

Our proposal was inspired by the spatial characteristics of the existing space and the way that natural light if properly channeled and reflected could bathe the space in soft, ethereal light. Simultaneously, we imagine a different dynamic during the evenings while hosting events. This approach was inspired by the quiet conversations, concentrated thinking, and self-reflection that we imagine will happen in the Ziggurat

3. The Nebula Tower -

Nebula Tower is an iconic landmark anchoring 14 acre Arena Green Park in the City of San Jose, open to local residents and the world. The architecture framework is fully integrated into the densely programmed urban park, providing a diverse set of experiences reflective of the richness of the surrounding natural biomes, as well as the innovative, risk embracing spirit that has defined Silicone Valley.
