In his first year with ADS2, his research discusses the threat of the latest gentrification plan to the religious practices in Shezidao, Taipei, Taiwan. His project proposed a pavilion series that accommodated the production line of firecrackers. It also doubled as a procession route for the pavilions to connect and gather annually for their annual ceremony.
In his second year with ADS2, he focused on the landscape of peat exploitation through the spectacles of the whisky industry on the Isle of Islay. The project integrates the whisky industry and the ecology through a carefully regenerated land management system, re-establishing the ownership of the peat bog and the distillery as a worker-owned cooperative structure. To promote the local peat's importance through rewilding processes, reversing the formation processes on how a peat bog was once created, allowing this intricately designed land management system to be taken over by nature from this formally artificial landscape.
