Research Field:

Research for Applications of New Technology and New Material in Environmental Art Design

Academic Views:The emergence of new techniques and materials in the field of environmental art design has greatly enriched the format of the designed products, as well as affected the conversion of designing thoughts and concepts. Meanwhile, people are paying more and more attention on the concept of environmental protection and sustainable development, which has changed the pattern of traditional materials. Therefore, material motivated design has become a trend and direction for future development. In the existing teaching practices, the exploitation on the application and representative material in interior and environmental landscape design is comparatively weak, while the lack of understanding and mastering of new techniques and materials has become a bottle neck for the improvement of professional excellence.

The study on new techniques and materials in the professional field will focus on speciality teaching and practicing, striving to comprehensively master the latest development of techniques and information on decoration materials, making full use of the professional advantages and resources to establish stable long-term strategic cooperative relationships with the production industries and research institutes in the local and foreign decoration industry, and actively expand the scope and profundity of speciality teaching and researching.

Academic Achievements:1. Integrating with Experimental Teaching 

Sponsored and established the International “Creative Future – the Creation Camp of Decorative Materials” with integrating the speciality practical courses. The Creation Camp of Decorative Materials is aimed at encouraging the students to communicate with and inspire each other so as to seek exceptional creative spaces and stimulate new thoughts for designing by intensive communication and cooperation with material producing industries. Besides the accompanying teachers from the Academy, the Creation Camp has invited architects and Interior Designers with practical experiences to make creating teams of different orientations with the students to present and extend the theme based on the different characters of materials obtained, so that the students may establish interaction and emotions with the material, improve their understanding and cognition of the material, actively seek the new possibilities for material application, and extend the limit of material application and presentation by their personal understanding, touching and producing. Till now 4 Creation Camps of Decorative Materials have been conducted continuously, Central Academy of Fine Arts, Tianjin Academy of Fine Arts, Fine Arts College of Shanghai University, as well as Seoul National University, Kyonggi University, and Sookmyung Women’s University have been actively participating this event, of which the achievements and influence are widely recognized by the specialized institutions and industries.

Give guidance to the students for participating in the China Alpha (Materials) Design Competition with integrating the Specialized Design Courses. Among the students, the designing works of Jin Hui Ying, Zhang Shuai, and Yang Xuan have won the Best Prize and the Best Originality Prize respectively, while those works of Wang Tong, Wu Di, and Liu Dao won the Excellence Award.

2. Establishing the Library for Construction and Application of Decoration Materials

Sponsored the establishment of the Library for Construction and Application of Decoration Materials, which aims at serving the teaching activities, focus on introducing the domestic and international decoration materials and the associated processes with innovative significance and application values, mainly used for presenting the real object of material and their applications, as well as exploring the structural nodes, so as to help the teachers, students and people of the same profession with understanding and mastering all kinds of new materials.

3. Horizontal Cooperation with Material Industries
