Hudson Yards is a real estate development in the Chelsea and Hudson Yards neighborhoods of Manhattan, New York City.

It is the largest private real estate development in the United States by area.

Upon completion, 13 of the 16 planned structures on the West Side of Midtown South would sit on a platform built over the West Side Yard, a storage yard for Long Island Rail Road trains.

this is the future of new York . All the new stuff cultures buildings are all gonna be here.

The first of its two phases, opened in 2019, comprises a public green space and eight structures that contain residences, a hotel, office buildings, a mall, and a cultural facility. The second phase, on which construction has not started yet, will include residential space, an office building, and a school.、


In late 2006, the city and the MTA backed out of a plan for the city to purchase the development site, and created a proposal to seek bids from private developers.

 This was followed by the a formal request for proposals in 2008 with the intention of creating a large-scale mixed-use development above the rail yards.

Five developers responded to the RFP: Extell Development Company, Tishman Speyer, Brookfield, Vornado Realty Trust with the Durst Organization, and the Related Companies.


WHY? WHAT? HOW? of the final productions


  • What: Those pictures are including my lobby, my selfie, every daily walking people on the street. This is about the understanding of my time every morning in my lobby. Every time I will think a lot about the emotion and some life stuff in my head. Some philosophy questions will come out to my head. This is a picture that shows my emotion and my thought for this space and this period of time. I am using my way to express my feeling and my thoughts in this space.
  • Why: Every day When I need to go out, I will stay in my lobby for some minutes. I repeat this action every day and I think this time period and this space is special to me. I am an observer in this street. People are boring walking to work every day. I am also kind of boring stay at my apartment every day. Every time I am waiting for my uber or taxi. I will take a few minutes to observe those people who walk on this street. I will think about some questions like why are those people walking so fast, why some of them walking so slow? Are they repeating their same day again and again? Am I repeating my day? What’s one day means to our life?
  • How: I use the front sight of my apartment as a base. And I using my face and eye to show I am observing this world really seriously. I take some pictures of some people to walk in front of my apartment. I also add some charges on the top of the front door. It represents my apartment is a place to charge myself to fill on energy and battery. Also shows I am enjoying the moment that I stand on the lobby observing, the process that I think the world thinks the time makes me full of energy.

this project is about to make more people what the moral really means in the world. What is the truth of moral make us consider.

It will be a public art piece

claim for research question

What’s the truth of moral?

Moral is subjective and also objective at the same time, because sometime people make their own decision is based on moral, but sometime moral force people’s life becoming following the rules. We do not have decision for our own life.

evidence: For example, according by research every one of us’ characteristics will not change at our whole life, but in fact it is not. In people’s whole life their personality are changing all the time. The only way to cause that is the society’s affection, the moral’s affection. We lost the real us in the society, the true self is lost in this society because if someone do something that not follow the rules will make society angry make other people angry. We use our own definition to define kind. Anyway when someone do something that make you agree with him in your heart will make you think this guy might be really kind.The most hard thing in the world is be honest to yourself.

Research way is going to watch lots of videos and search lot of examples from library.

Significance of research.

1980 ,there is a great example about that, the evangelical priest Christine Pierre Pierpon traveled around the world. He claims that homosexuality is a sin and also teaches ways to curb homosexual desires. This is also a deep spiritual search for himself. As a person with homosexual tendencies, he himself is deeply afflicted by this desire. He pursued his soul salvation in a way that eliminated the desires of others, and he publicly acknowledged that this was a contradiction.

Moral is a kind of rule that a group of people make it for lots of people. It’s the society’s rules to make people stay with each other more peaceful. When people to look at other people, they will use moral as the criterion to judge this man is good or bad. It show human are society species.


summer bridge2

this is a really interesting structure that using light material but showing the weight and value of the stuff.

the most important relationship between this artwork and my poem is it shows what’s the moral looks like right now. Heavy side represents the most people are standing the side of moral but actually, the heavy part is not the part full of passion. The light part that the few people understand what’s the truth of moral full of real passion making people’s society is making the good process.


This is my final product. And it is a wood piece that reperesent

Summer Bridge 1

I find out use hand to loom is really hard, so I made my own tool like a pen, cardboard something else. The tool can make things better a lot, saves people’s time. I decide to use wool because it has more possibilities to create work and show my idea.

the material’s color makes think about the people’s society are full of passion but also there is some dark side behind. Two sides to show how society is different, two parts and two sides. One is full of order and another one is full of massy

noisy sound on the street,

the cold wind is flowing,

noisy from the car and white rooftop is shinning.

the dirty mark on the window.

May 25th,easy going

Forget the noises and relax

First time breathing

Think about the time goes by

stand on the outside,

hold my books and pens.

East village under sunshine.


thoughts,live, moral

strangeness and green grass

Wind teaches me how to be.

to be or not to be

teeth over teeth,tone over tone,

September 1st morning day to parsons
