Qianyang E-business Park of Ningbo City takes the central landscape as the "explosive particle", three layers concentric circles are organized: outer layer office sector, interlayer sharing office space, and innermost support & experience platform space. The zoning setting provides users with a 16-hour work circle within the park by providing comfortable spaces for working, business conversation, catering and entertainment and exhibition/show, etc. 

Rizhao Ocean Park is a leading tourist project of Rizhao, and comprises the Sunshine Aquarium and Four Season Flower and Bird Park as two highlights, and Bird Theater, Waterfowl World, Children's Kingdom and many other interesting outdoor sightseeing spots. The main part of the aquarium is of a round shape, with a diameter of 120 meters and height of 24 meters, divided into two floors. The net height of the entrance hall is. The Ocean Theater is able to accommodate 2500 visitors. 

M City is unlike any other urban residential community in the GTA. A walkable, sustainable mixed use development, at the centre of Mississauga’s fast evolving urban core, with excellent access to transit including Mississauga’s planned LRT, this complete community will define the quality of urbanism that has become the hallmark of some of the most vibrant cities in the world. Set to be the Centre piece of M City’s 10 tower master-planned community, this signature tower will occupy a full City block, and soaring at 81 storeys the sculptural form of the tower will almost immediately establish itself as the most iconic and recognizable development in Mississauga City Centre. 

With a financial history of one hundred years, the land is the witness of the splendid years of Chongqing's port opening culture. Baixiang Street bears too much development and evolution history of culture and architecture. From this point of view, the design scope of Baixiang Street is far beyond the physical scale of the 600 meters, which also involves the multi-dimensional scope of social economy and material space. The site with abundant resources has not been able to shine the light she should have. Various reasons make this project full of challenges for designers.

Axis Condos at 411 Church Street is a 38 storey mixed use tower that includes a 6 storey podium with retail and residential uses. The frontages on Church and part of Wood Street are occupied by retail at grade. The complete urban ensemble of well articulated tree-lined sidewalks with benches, canopy protection, patio seating, small scale retail and grade related townhouses creates a safe and animated public realm with a strong sense of place.
