1. Shi, Fangyuan. Research on a Future Senior Housing Model in Wuhan, China.

Degree: Architecture (M.Arch.), Architecture (GIS), 2019, Rochester Institute of Technology

Recently in China, seniors’ health and living conditions after retirement have become the focus of increasing political and social concerns. Due to fertility policies in China since the 1980s, improvements in living conditions have led to longer average lifespan, increasing demand in the country’s senior housing market. This research explores the future development of senior housing for this and the next generation, the evolution of needs after retirement, and possible future solutions for providing an up-to-date senior housing community in Wuhan, China. Through documentary analysis of the current conditions as well as the needs and social concerns of seniors, case studies of successful senior housing projects, interviews with seniors and other generations in Wuhan, and online surveys, this study aims to look for possible future solutions for a sustainable community complex. To meet the need to live in a community that provides comfortable housing, and the desire of seniors to stay close to their family, this proposal seeks a solution that is affordable and suitable. This study aims to analyze the framework of a senior housing model that provides human services as well as physical infrastructure needed by seniors and their families for the well-being and high quality of life for seniors in the future. This analysis is developed based on Wuhan, a typical populous city in northern will China, which potentially has further influence on senior housing in other cities in China. Advisors/Committee Members: Giovanna Potesta, Jules J Chiavaroli, M Ann Howard.

2. Shen, Bixiao. Learning from the Past: An Analysis of the Sustainable Features of Hakka Tulou.

Degree: Architecture (M.Arch.), Architecture (GIS), 2018, Rochester Institute of Technology

The Hakka tulou represent an ancient form of Chinese architecture common in Southeast China. In 2008, several of the tulou were listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. A tulou is usually an earthen building with an enclosed circular shape serving hundreds of residents. People have inhabited such structures for centuries due, in part, to their ability to passively moderate temperature. This particular form of architecture represents an ancient wisdom: it is a sustainable design concept that has thrived for centuries. The global energy crisis has become a problem for all. The ancient concept of the Hakka tulou, which has the potential to help save energy by providing a model for sustainable architecture, may hold some valuable answers. To establish whether modern design could be improved using the principles employed by the Hakka tulou, and whether tulou design could be improved upon by formal redesign, this thesis will create a basic model of the tulou and a modernized version thereof, before using computer software to analyze and compare their respective solar, wind and daylighting performance. It will then modify the basic tulou model by adjusting its shading and ventilation features to determine the optimal design. The model will then be compared to a standard modern design to establish whether the traditional design can be improved upon. Advisors/Committee Members: Jules J. Chiavaroli, Nana-Yaw Andoh, Gabrielle Gaustad.
