1.Introduction:
Hallo everyone, my name is Jing Lanting. I was born in Sichuan Province, China. Currently, I'm studying in the Department of environmental art and design, School of fine arts, Tsinghua University. The environmental art design department of the Academy of fine arts of Tsinghua University is the first teaching unit to set up the environmental design specialty in China. From interior design, it has developed into a comprehensive discipline integrating urban and rural landscape, garden, interior and exterior space design of buildings, furniture, facilities, furnishings and other comprehensive design. Architecture is a major that I am very interested in. In the future, I will also study and try landscape, furniture, garden and other disciplines. For me, there are many possibilities in the future.


2.When and how were you first introduced to architecture?
Before the University, I had some travel experience. Many historical ancient buildings in Beijing have been well preserved, which moved me very much; At the same time, I also like many modern buildings in China, many of which not only implement the green energy-saving goal of sustainable development, but also are full of humanistic feelings. forunately, I entered this major by chance and began to understand Architecture and learn architecture. Hope to bring more architectural design works in the future.


3.What is your design philosophy?
What I strongly hold is that architecture should be a subject combining science and art. The most important thing is the humanistic value and artistic value of architecture. Caring for people is the core of a building. Finding problems, solving problems, and bringing people better, more unique experiences. Buildings often reflect the social problems and social needs of an era. For example, Corbusier's Domino system reflects the social problems of the shortage of housing resources in industrial society. While Wright more forward-looking expressed his Reflection on industrialization. Our architecture should also focus more on contemporary social problems and possible problems in the future to plan for human development. A building without humanistic care is just an empty shell, but at the same time, we should also pay attention to the designer's personal artistic expression, and bring aesthetic standard into the building through various methods, materials and technologies.


4.What does architecture mean to you?
For my perspective, architecture is a very romantic art. It is not only a living space, but also a means for designers to express their understanding of society, beauty and humanity. Through architecture, I can understand this society from another perspective and respond to personal and social needs with architecture.


5.Briefly explain your design process and your perspective on the role of architecture in healing the human mind.
When I saw the theme of the competition, I first felt that it was a game space with magical colors. It seemed that the stories of both the rabbit and Alice were very suitable for making a building for children. Moreover, in our place, the Bunny was also a nickname for children, so I had the initial idea of making a space for children who needed psychological treatment. Left- behind children, especially those aged 5 to 12, have a rapid development of their self-awareness during this period. They lack parental care and a healthy living and learning environment, and are prone to psychological problems such as loneliness, timidity, depression, anxiety and phobia. My hometown is one of the provinces with the largest number of left behind children in China. When I was a child, I also met with some left - behind children. In fact, such children can be easily distinguished from the crowd. Because of family, economic and other reasons, most of them are prone to develop self-confidence, introversion and sensitivity. We can't give them the love from their parents, so we can make up for the lack of family affection and release the inner pressure of children from other aspects. Our Work is a space for left-behind children to release themselves. Here, children can do things that are not allowed to do at ordinary times or things that they want to do but dare not do at ordinary times.In order to take into account all aspects of children's life as much as possible, we have set up three theme lines. I am responsible for exploring my own theme line, which is mainly composed of two themes: sand table games and painting. Through the sand table, the scene of traumatic events is slowly introduced. And adopt the deduction and reproduction of the scene, the children are helped to realize that "he can cure himself". Through the painting tools, the suppressed feelings and conflicts in the subconscious are presented. Tu sum up,the two activities lead the children to release pressure, obtain happiness and a sense of achievement in different forms, and get spiritual satisfaction.
