感谢 峻佳设计 予
It’s the nature of children to play games and embrace wild imaginations. With regard to the theme, we hope to bring a beautiful world into children’s lives. This is not only the original inspiration of Fantasia Holdings, but also a brand-new idea of Kyle from the design perspective.
「绘本故事」的概念是这一次的创作灵感，我们以故事先行的场景化设计，赋予空间灵魂，作为视觉传达元素，抽象变幻的线条感设计成为本案核心。 ——Karv One Design
The concept of “picture book story” is our inspiration for this design. With design guided by scenes featuring stories, space is endowed with soul. The delicately-designed lines, as visual expression elements, became the soul of this design.” —Karv One Design

项目背景 | Project Background
Urban development is entering an era of refined operation. Karv One Design was commissioned by Fantasia Holdings Chengdu for an innovative design on real estate sales and future community management. In this project, Fantasia ditched the sales-oriented thinking of traditional sales centers and, in an open and visionary manner, focused the core expression of the project on future urban life and new community services. As the link between family and city in the future, “children” and “aesthetic education” became the breakthrough and key words of this design.
▼设计关键词：“儿童”和“美育”，key words: “children” and “aesthetic education”
Fantasia gave full support to the innovation of Karv One Design in this project. By combining multi-functions of real estate sales center, children’s aesthetic education space, future community kindergarten, multi-generation education center, children’s amusement park and brand experience place, we came up with the idea of “Blossom School”, a brand-new type of real estate management service dedicated to letting the new generation in the city live and grow up in the nourishment of love and beauty.
▼绘本故事，picture book story
创作手记 | Innovation Notes
In this project, the theme of future community life was adopted. Children, as the key link between community and family, became the protagonist of the design. Based on thinking about children’s aesthetic education, the Blossom School inspired by picture story books is committed to provide Edu-taiment experience which combines education and fun. From early-stage planning, brand name ideation, to VI (visual identification) system, interior design and display, Karv One Design has offered a complete string of experience connected by stories.
Blossom School originates from a beautiful picture book story and it is a place where adults and children together weave their dreams. With a series of “multi-generation guardians” spanning different ages, visitors are guided to make various kinds of explorations in the space connected by stories and interesting scenes of display. Granny Blossom dedicated to education, Grandpa Spoon super good at cooking, naughty and lovely Super Bobbi and kind Blossom Elves, the “space guardians” are included to inspire children to embark on an interesting exploration journey. These vivid and unique roles in story picture books together make the unique symbol of Blossom School bringing infinite vitality.
▼绘本故事中的角色， a series of “multi-generation guardians” in the book story
By using “lines” as the core elements for expression of space, the design adds a sense of smooth narration to the changes between different functional scenes. The large glass curtain wall and the indoor lighting design convey a feeling of openness and form perfect interaction with the natural environment.
▼流动的叙事感，a smooth narration
Functional areas include small theatres, game rooms, light food restaurant, bakery, library, handwork area, music and sports classroom, theme classrooms, etc. Blossom School has been advocating for the aesthetic education of the future. Thoughts of Karv One Design about children’s education are expressed in its design of the interior space and the display, which enables users to explore the whole space in a relaxed manner.
▼空间分布示意，the map of Blossom School
Children experience the world with curiosity. What they see, touch and perceive constitute the way they understand the world. From a beautiful picture book story to a space, and through the integrated interior and display design, the whole space becomes a huge place for storytelling. It can be a place for children to learn, play and use while also serving the public good. At the same time, it perfectly accommodates functions of a sales center and brand display space.
▼大堂入口区域，entrance area in the lobby
The gigantic “FLY” shaped abstract lines and rainbow background curtain create a fantastic atmosphere for the whole space of the entrance lobby. The imaginative visual presentation not only stimulates children’s imagination, but also imply the various narrative experiences in the exploration which is different from ordinary experiences. The design team attaches great importance to the combination of aesthetic feeling and education in each and every corner of the project. The space guardians, shown in different forms, are placed in various scenes to connect the stories as a whole.

The game area fully respects children’s natural fond of playing. In order to engage the children as much as possible, the designers have set interactive games which involve jumping movements such as slide and bubble pool. At the same time, the physical size of young children is taken into consideration to ensure that they can experience interesting exploration of space in healthy sports.

A creative world of 10,000 building blocks to build anything you can imagine of !
The biggest highlight of the sandbox area is the creative sandbox made up of tens of thousands of building blocks. It is not only an embodiment of the Fantasia brand idea of “interesting, tasty and practical”, but also a manifestation of the “Edu-tainment” concept advocated by Blossom School. We have made interesting detailed scenes in the sandbox such as the animal chair as an exhibition board for piecing together building blocks, plants after color change treatment, movable windmill theme walls. Children can play here and piece together whatever comes into their unique imagination.

People’s behaviors are unconsciously influenced by the environment. In terms of project details, many details are designed for children’s safety, such as the child-touch-friendly materials and the furniture customized according to children’s height, which are like guardians providing children with company.
Under the trend of upgrading “real estate + operation” mode, real estate enterprises have been transforming their roles from developers to service providers. Innovations in products and operation services focusing on scenes of residents’ lives have become the key for major real estate enterprises to make breakthroughs in the competition and become the innovation leader.
Blossom School is exactly an exploration made for the future. By redefining sales center in this project, which combines future education and shared community space, Karv One Design worked with Fantasia Holdings to stimulate new people-to-people and people-to-space interactions from the perspective of space and environmental aesthetics. This project is so much more than just a school. It is also fertile soil for the public that incubates unlimited possibilities for the future. With its openness and beauty, the project will be a model of innovation in real estate services.

“There are landscapes in the countryside or in the midst of cities which have been left behind and forgotten – a no-man’s-land where the life of animals and plants remains hidden and people are rare.
The landscape of the former Zollverein colliery is situated away from the city, difficult to reach, and secured with walls and fences. Zollverein Park emerged over just a few years amidst collieries and coking plants. Admittedly, there were structural changes, but landscape designers with their teams of gardeners did initially not take part in it. Despite or even because of this, everything is ever so magnificent and at the same time strange. A multifaceted open space arose in the immediate surroundings of a unique industrial monument – a park with light forests, dark scrub, lakes, and open, wide spaces for sighting the tree-shaded paths.”

以上文字描绘了Zollverein公园在 1994 年时的景象。随后，Zollverein公园得到了迅速的发展，并开始向公众开放。2005年，设计师团队参加了Zollverein公园改造的建筑竞赛，其概念为：将两种不同的景观相结合，既强调这片被遗忘景观的原有特征，同时又为新活动提供新的基础设施。
▼项目整体规划，site planning ©Planergruppe Oberhausen
This has been our view on Zollverein Park in 1994. Subsequently, the area of the Zollverein colliery and coking plant took a rapid development. The Zollverein Park was made accessible and visitors were allowed to enter the unexplored site. The concept with which we took Zollverein Park into architectural competition in 2005 linked two different views together: carefully emphasizing the existing characteristics and qualities of a forgotten landscape, and making available necessary new, multifaceted and robust infrastructure for new activities at Zollverein.
▼强调现有特征，emphasizing the existing characteristics ©Thomas Mayer
▼将两种不同的景观相结合，linking two different views together ©Claudia Dreysse
Our approach and handling of Zollverein is based on several principles: emphasis on the architectural ensemble, restraint in landscape design, reduction of elements and materials, respect for the existing, preservation of industrial origin, acquisition of space by the visitors, making the transformation from a hermetically sealed-off industrial site to a public tourist highlight visible and experience-able. Zollverein Park – which has developed on industrially embossed terrain and does not deny its origins by gently adding and classifying – keeps its unique selling point by the high-contrast interacting between the clear, simple forms and structures of industrial architecture and the variety of spontaneous vegetation. The shape and outer appearance of Zollverein Park are being developed by a systematic and continuous maintenance.

▼提供多重体验，providing multifaceted experiences ©Thomas Mayer
▼为游客创造新的场地，creating new space for visitors ©Claudia Dreysse
The long-term concept of development by maintenance goes hand in hand with the gradual realization of the elements of Zollverein Park. Over a relatively long period, a forbidden zone develops to a park which is ready to get explored. It is not about establishing a museum-like industrial landscape, yet about composing a landscape with already existing elements; this concept consciously includes historical and current developments and signs in a credible manner and offers surface and room for future developments and purposes – open to interpretation and offering a pragmatic dysfunction.

▼已经存在的元素被用作新的设施，composing a landscape with already existing elements ©Claudia Dreysse
With the concept of design by maintenance, the gentle approach to emphasizing the existing vegetation and to dispensing with any large intervention is linked. The vegetation is given time and calmness to develop naturally, and any potential intervention in the existing and future vegetation is being executed very carefully. Therefore, Zollverein became a place that develops a special atmosphere and energy out of itself. The cautious care and maintenance is at the same time easy to be arrangeable and practicable, and relatively cost-effective.

With its status as world heritage site, Zollverein has a very high radiance and attraction for the city of Essen and the Ruhr region. At the foreground is the impressive industrial architecture of the mine plant. The open spaces have an unobtrusive look which creates a surface to take an appropriate effect on the architecture; they complement the ensemble to a formal framework that makes the dimensions of the site tangible. Zollverein Park is an exceptional open space, which offers a unique experience with its complex offer of open spaces in conjunction with the mine facility, and attracts tourists and local residents equally. The visitor is invited to individually discover the park.

To create a literati art center in a modern residential area, this is the topic assigned to us at the reception of this commission. This obviously challenging task sets us face to face with two relations: one is between modernity and tradition, and the other between the privacy of a residential area and the publicity of an art center. Fortunately, the plot is located at the foot of the Fuchun Mountains, one of the richest spots in terms of art, culture and tradition.
▼“小区里的美术馆”，a literati art center in a residential area
An Imaginary World for Literati
The buildings concerned are two five-storied terraced houses linked with each other, covering a relatively limited area of about 100m². Moreover, all the utilizable space is further squeezed towards the margins by a very generous staircase located at the center of the buildings, which is 1.2m in width. To meet the functionality of residence, the inner space of the buildings was divided into 38 rooms of variable sizes and shapes. Compartments separated with numerous walls, this was the state of the buildings in question at the starting point of the renovation work. In addition, all the facades in this residential area are under the control of administrative authority, which means that our renovation should be confined within and the final renovated buildings will not have a conventional bearing usually expected for an art center. So, how can such a space for literati art be brought forth under all these conditions and limitations?
The option which seems easiest to us is to implant into these buildings of modern structure some traditional elements like old-styled furniture or wooden walls of division, which in our opinion would be no more than ornament, since this ‘vocabulary of tradition’, due to the lack of a complete system of expression, is made up merely of some ‘fragments’ floating in history. What we need to do first is therefore to set up, as a reply to tradition, a system of formal language for space which can, firstly, hold the story of traditional objects with its own narrativeness and constructiveness, and secondly, grow on and explain for its own. That’s the reason why we start our conception with the imagination about a literati world and then establish a complete set of formal language applicable to our project.
▼用建构完整的语言系统改造的现代住宅，a modern residence transformed in a complete set of formal language
Grotto – Recipient – Frame Structure in Concrete
First of all, such a world for literati should be stood in mountains and close to waters, just like what is depicted in the paintings by Huang Gongwang, one of the foremost artists of Yuan Dynasty who is best known for his delineation of the scenery in the Fuchun Mountains. Since the spot is already surrounded outside by modern residential buildings, our idea is naturally turned inwards and focused on an imaginary landscape which is to be contained within a modern husk, just like a grotto for modern literati. Our literary imagination about such a world in grotto conducts us first of all to erase all the walls of division, all the staircases and part of stairways, maintaining only the original concrete structure as well as the outer surface of the buildings. As a result, a gigantic recipient which not only offers to us a fundamental structure to create a grotto but achieves at the same time the openness required for a public space transformed from a private dwelling place. The remarkable complexity of the original concrete structure, which had been further complicated by the repartition of dwelling space, is now fully exposed though enveloped yet by a colossal husk as its boundary.
▼木头房子+混凝土框架，wooden rooms + concrete frame structure
Imbued with a tone of complexity, the characteristics of the spot in question should be maintained and handed down to the grotto which, in essence, should also be a recipient of technology since the concrete structure is not only a representative for modern architecture but physically a load-bearing structure as well. The outer surface continuously extending along the six sides of the volume is the border area where is taking place the dialogue with the outside world. Reduced back to its original state, the concrete structure is not only a guaranty for the integrity of the Grotto but also a magic box of multi-dimensionality for the inner space.
▼垂直空间，the vertical space
Wooden Room Systems
▼木头房子 + 场所， wooden rooms + places
Following the clearance of the remainders of modern architecture is the space system fully adapted to the life-style of literati, in which nine wooden rooms are dedicated respectively to nine facets of literati life including Chinese zither, the game of Weiqi, calligraphy, drawing and painting, poetry, wine, tea, flowers and incense. Used as medium for expression of ideas and thoughts, most of these nine activities can factually go in pairs, like music and game, calligraphy and drawing, poetry and wine, tea and flowers, with only incense being singled out because of its peculiarity in spiritual life. Burning incense used to be regarded as part of a ritual activity and, quite often, the ascension of smoke symbolizes the connection with gods. That’s the reason why we put the section of incense at the central point of the building and name it ‘the Center of Humanity’, with the other eight aspects of literati life being settled in the surrounding area.
▼“香”被设置在了整个建筑的圆心位置，the section of incense is located at the central point of the building
According to their different position in space and various utility in practice, we borrow from traditional Chinese architecture one specific architectural term for each of these nine spaces which are, from below to above, Study Room, Music Tower, Art Gallery, Flower Studio, Wine Counter, Tea House, Poetry Pavilion, Game Space and Incense Platform, composing a polyphony of nine different aspects of literati life-style through nine archetypal constructions arranged in different positions in the renovated space. Why archetypal? Taking for instance the tea house which is designated as an, a Chinese architectural type originally referring to the buildings with a straw roof in shape of flattened cone. The image of an, which is often enriched by figures sitting with crossed legs and sharing tea, is illustrated in modern architectural language by an outline of a rectangle from outside and a circle inside, with at the same time considerable empty parts on the four surrounding walls. Such a modern construction not only contains in itself, but also respects, the connotation of this architectural form. By tracing back to certain archetypes in traditional Chinese architecture, we can firstly preset a form in which certain life-style can be unfolded, and, more importantly, prevent the space from being isolated from the nature. All types of buildings are linked to the environment. And more important to our Grotto World is the atmosphere created through man-made objects indicating mountains and waters. As often shown in traditional Chinese landscape paintings or typical Chinese design gardens, houses occupy only a modest fraction of the total area, ceding most land rather to natural landscape, notably mountains and waters.

▼从走廊望向茶庵，view to the tea house from corridor
Conjunction of Natural Places
Parallel to the nine wooden rooms proposed above, we set up in the unoccupied space a conjunction of various places which are quite similar to what is easily encountered in traditional Chinese painting where, for example, a small cottage finds often on its side a tiny plot, being it a piece of vegetable garden, an enclosed area used as courtyard or merely a tiny piece of plain ground. Such a tamed place, which may be described as ‘natural’ to certain extent, is regarded as a zone of transition from nature landscape to man-made dwelling place.
▼场所系统，the space system
In our Grotto World, each wooden room has a place in this kind, of bigger or smaller size, for temporary passage or longer staying, being attached to or simply juxtaposed with the room associated. Each room, along with the associated place in its vicinity, constitutes a new space level. All these places are oriented towards a center which had been factually the patio enclosed by the two five-storied buildings and had been mainly used for ventilation. In contrast to the Center of Humanity represented by the Incense Platform, this virtual column can be understood as an Axe of Nature occupied, after the renovation, by a huge transparent installation in glass, of which the main purpose is to introduce some natural landscape to the interior. Equipped with a set of automatic shutters and especially an automatic water pumping and circulation system, this huge installation can recycle the water gathered on basement, pump it back to the top of building, and finally make a spectacle of waterfall with well regulated sound effect of raindrops. Visible from every corner of the Grotto, this installation symbolizes the connection between Heaven and earth. While the Incense Platform, owing to its position at the center of the entire space and, above all, its image of a 360-degree radiance, represents the communion with gods. Thus the ‘Center of Humanity’ along with the ‘Axe of Nature’, dominating respectively the nine wooden rooms and the associated places, constitute a double center for our World in Grotto where the Heaven, the earth, the humans and the gods get along with each other.

Vertical Garden – Promenade in Nature – Labyrinth of Landscape
▼垂直园林设计概念图，design concept of the vertical garden
As regards the materials used for the wooden rooms and their corresponding places, we have chosen those which are easily felt in terms of texture, tactility or even temperature for an appropriate expression of traditional concepts and, at the same time, applied to the concrete structure those materials which are sleek, lack in texture and more or less abstract as the vocabulary for modern architecture. With all its beams being fully exposed, the structure in concrete expounds plainly the complete technical framework of the buildings. Ceiling and ground floor being undefined, conventional limitation in horizontal space in modern architecture (ref. Le Corbusier’s concept of Dom-ino) being thus broken down, a certain ambiance is therefore created which is favorable to a free promenade in a multi-dimensional space, just like one’s strolling in real mountains and waters. Two systems deriving from two different conceptions are interwoven in the dialogue and effectively constitute an imaginary world of harmony between nature and humanity.
▼混凝土框架完全暴露，the fully exposed concrete frame system
▼楼梯间仰视，looking up to the stair well
Scattered around in the space and superimposed with each other, these different spots, once linked through specially designed paths and accesses, constitute a vertical garden or an enjoyable labyrinth of landscapes. Walking around freely in this uninterrupted space of overlaps and multi-dimensionality is in itself the most excellent expression of such a space. Even the paths themselves can be taken as part of the places or their extension. All the spaces, once connected, form an entire whole. As we have proposed, there are two groups of stairways in the building. One group, voluminous and always in the lower part of building, is inspired from the stone bridge across streams in mountains, which elevate us away from the lower space. The other group, always positioned in the higher part of the building, calls to mind the image of ‘stairway to heaven’. Some special treatments to the latter group of stairs, such as separation between steps and extension of each section, help reinforce the feeling of being amidst the clouds. With the marching time along the stairways being elongated, the firmament seems being pushed even farther and higher.
▼“天梯”， ‘stairway to heaven’
Metaphor – Scenario – Mirage
Along these interlinked paths are strung up not only spaces of practical function but also scenarios under diverse circumstances, which constitute a complex of mirages through various metaphors for mountains and waters. The patio, for example, as the only transparent white object in the space, breaks like a waterfall the silence of the Grotto or, sometimes, impedes at its top opening the flashes of sunshine. Another example is the Art Gallery, which is suspended above the water and dominates the lake of its twisted and bended borderlines. While opposite to the Music Tower, on the left is the patio with waterfall, on the right a rocky mountain made of LiTraCon. And further to the right side of the Music Tower is a cliff dotted with several niches. We can also imagine someone playing traditional Chinese zither in a deep valley. Different scenarios are thus strung together through the paths, cottages by lake, pavilions in height, terraces for temporary rest, wooden rooms for longer staying …, with visitors strolling or relaxing themselves between resemblance and metaphors. When night is falling, the Grotto will switch on its nocturnal version thanks to the lighting system. Droplights of various heights bring into our sight a starry sky while the wooden rooms, once fully lightened, seem like hearths in a mountaineous region. Floor lights along the path, together with wall lights, guide us in safety at each turning point of space. The only cold light resource is installed in the central patio and can brighten, once fully illuminated, the entire space.

Quite similar to the spatial property of the ‘natural’ place inside, the Grotto World needs also an outside area of transition from natural landscape, in correspondence with the homogeneous structure existed inside. The spaces connected with outer world include the outer surface of the Grotto and the four yards in different direction around the Grotto, i.e. the front yard, the back yard, the side yard and the top yard. These four yards, all connected to the outer surface of the Grotto, constitute an external layer of environment of certain thickness which is supposed to have two significances if the Grotto is considered as a metaphor for the Fairy Island of Penglai. It symbolizes, firstly, the sea/water surrounding the Island, where is the passage to the world beyond; and secondly, the aura of mystery around the Island, which is also a self-sufficient natural environment.
▼文人世界的微缩模型，a miniature of the world for Chinese literati
The world of traditional landscape painting consists of four basic objects existing in the Nature: mountain, water, trees and rocks, of which the myriad forms and various compositions bring about diversity of landscape. Taking inspiration from these four basic objects, we find for each of the four yards a theme and thus have such yards as of mountain, of water, of tree and of rock which form in a highly concise manner a ‘natural’ environment endowed with certain spiritual value. The back yard of water has a little gate and a clear pond. The front yard of tree, a big gate and a well preserved tree. The side yard of rock, relatively a discreet one, has a huge rock two meters high. The yard of mountain, on top of the building, embraces and integrates into its view the Fuchun Mountains yonder.
▼景观庭院鸟瞰，aerial view to the landscaped yard
The surrounding sea/water is represented in form of dry landscape. The term of dry landscape here does not refer to what is often seen in a typical Japanese rock garden but a metaphor, a symbolic or abstract representation of water scenery. Both the front and the back yards are covered of tiles. The terrace of numerous grades in the front yard expresses the idea of streams flowing on the strands. Enclosed with the relatively high fence, the area of the side yard, though not very large, might be understood as an imaginary spring pond. Both the back yard and the top yard are covered of black gravels. From the back yard, the ground scenery extends itself till the interior where the original terrace is forming a performance stage, with the whole space being maintained as the foundation for the upper space. In the back yard, the black gravels, which appear repeatedly in every place of natural scenery in the spaces above, render to us a metaphor for water surface, symbolizing clear streams flowing in the mountains and finally converging into the pond at the lower bottom. With the Fuchun Mountains being integrated into the view, the top yard renders to us a physically accessible version of Dwelling in the Fuchun Mountains, masterpiece by Huang Gongwang.
▼“枯山水”， dry landscape
The outer surface, now as the boundary of the Grotto, was initially used to bear the balconies. It was also a zone of transition from the inside to the outside. However, with its newly acquired characteristics after the renovation of the Grotto, its initial practical function is no longer in need. To create on the basis of balconies another environment more natural, we have transformed all the balconies into green tanks for trees and plants to introduce through windows more natural elements for the people inside.
After such a renovation to its exterior, the Grotto seems like a ‘Fairy Island of Penglai’ floating on water, having on the other side the mysterious world beyond. Miniature of the World for Chinese literati, this Grotto is a place of refuge where men of letters make spiritual exchanges, appreciate seasonal products and scenery and display their artworks. In one word, this is a shelter for those longing for an evasion from reality, even for a brief instant.

▼入口区建筑组团与主庭院，entrance building cluster and the main courtyard
Fengqiao, a thousand-year-old town in Zhuji, Zhejiang Province, has become a cultural center in the northeastern part of Zhuji in history due to the “Gu Yue Jian Du” and “Fengqiao Sanxian”. The “Fengqiao Experience” in 1962 is known throughout the country as a model for social grassroots governance. In 2015, the architect was originally asked by the government owners of Fengqiao Town to do the renovation of Fengqiao Ancient Town. During the research, the architects often think of themselves as tourists in the future of the ancient town. I think the old town of Guzhen is like this. I want to think about the old bridge in Fengxi. I think about it. One day, I suddenly remembered that every time I came to the ancient town, I walked through the street like a treasure hunt. In general, realize that this can be a problem. Therefore, creating an entrance pilot zone for the ancient town with a difficult location has become an idea that coincides with the owners.
▼内部重要意向：映月-山水，important intention: shadow of the moon-landscape
Darning – Twisted shape, poetry and balance
Building a house in a small town is different from the city. In the city, the starting point of the construction project is probably a red line map. The land area and the boundary of the land are clearly displayed in black and white. The task before us is in a densely built area. Find the optimal solution between the ease and the ease of use of the land.
After thinking and discussing with the owners, a strangely shaped land slowly emerged: the south side is close to the Xiaoyi Old Street that we have just renovated, and the north side is adjacent to the local “Mother River” Fengxi, both sides of the east and west. It is an existing built-up building with different sizes.
▼奇怪形状的用地红线，grotesque property line
We did not choose to cut directly into the ancient town from the largest local transportation route, but chose it here for three reasons: 1. We believe that it is poetic to enter the ancient town in the way of water, bridge, and crossing the ancient town; The ancient town and Xiaoyi Old Street renewed their vitality with each other; 3. There are several abandoned public houses here, which not only take the land to hinder the small, but also the demolition of the new construction can be used as waste. At the same time, there are also several wood stone workshops that disturb the people. Taking them is also a benefit to the people. This kind of land shape reminds us once again that this is a design in a small town. There is no wide driveway and no square land. What we have to do is to fit the texture of the town and integrate it into the town with the most humble attitude. Not only that, but for the already dense areas, it is a darning and improvement of space when it is placed at the same time and left blank.

Activation – answer to the lack of public space
The entrance to the old town, if it can only be the entrance to the ancient town, this result is disappointing. The ancient town of Fengqiao and the surrounding urban texture are extremely lacking in the public space of the residents. We hope that this project can answer this question.
▼首层平面图，first floor Plan
For Xiaoyi Old Street, we have a main square surrounded by a party, which welcomes guests from all directions. This space is separated from the city by a water surface. Before guests come in, they need to go up a bridge with a slight uplift and cross the water. Cross the physical bridge and also complete the mood conversion. On the east side of the main square, there is also an important intention to “reflect the moon”, which not only strengthens the poetic atmosphere, but also becomes a photo punching point for tourists and residents in the town.
▼从城市经过水面，转换心情，进入主庭院，from the city through the water, change mood, enter the main courtyard
Facing Fengxi, we created another half-enclosed square by ourselves and the adjacent old houses and arches. This waterside square has become a rare “virtual” space along the roads on both sides of Fengxi, and at the same time it has taken on the increasing flow of people in the ancient town. People look around, or rest, or take photos with the ancient town as a backdrop. The first New Year after the project was completed, the local folklore activities were held here, providing a good place for the local people. The project’s functions, not just the reception of tourists, but also the functions of exhibitions, commerce, and small meetings can be seen as complementary to the public facilities in the town.

Searching for Meaning——The Artistic Conception of Traditional Architectural Spirit
In the center of the courtyard, we put a glass box on the water. Put it on a stone gauze, cut a semi-circular hole on the surface of the water, and a bright moon will be reflected on the water. The Chinese town of Guzhen should have a moon. Fengqiao not only has ancient towns, but also mountains and water. The surface of the box, the intention to add mountains and waters, at night, the light in the stone reveals a slight light. In addition to the instant poetry, there is still an atmosphere. The atmosphere of the entrance to the ancient town, we use the artistic conception of traditional architecture to convey, different positions correspond to different artistic conception, or obvious or hidden, each has its meaning.

In the case that two of the five buildings have been structurally topped, the owner has heard the news that in order to cope with the 55th anniversary of the “Maple Bridge Experience”, the higher leaders want to turn the entire ancient town entrance area into Maple Bridge. Experience exhibition hall, function is no longer the entrance area of the ancient town. The design team temporarily adjusted the plan and added the indoor corridor between the buildings. Under the premise of maintaining the general appearance of the original entrance area, it closely cooperated with the civil construction, exhibition team and landscape construction, while designing and constructing, and finally completed as scheduled. Successfully held.

Inkstone House OCT Linpan Cultural Center in Anren, Sichuan is located in the middle of the Linpan area of Anren Town, Dayi County, Chengdu City, Sichuan Province. It is adjacent to the Qimu River in the west and surrounded by large fields and bamboo forests. The design tries to integrate into the original natural landscape, continue the material and spatial elements of the traditional buildings in Western Sichuan, explore the coexistence of architectural culture, construction, and the combination of locality and emerging techniques under the guidance of structural performance-based approaches of digital fabrication, integrating local concepts and new technologies.

Linpan Landscape Complex
The Western Sichuan Plain has a long history and a unique Linpan landscape. Linpan can be said to be a complex landscape model integrating production, life and landscape, whose life and architectural form have evolved into a cultural symbol in the long-term historical accumulation, deeply imprinted in the folk customs of Western Sichuan. The freedom and wildness of rural life are naturally revealed between the bamboo and rivers.
The planning and design concept starts from Passing by Anren, a poem by Huang Jian of the Song Dynasty. The natural and humanistic scenes depicted in the poem are the starting point of our inner perception of the place. As a demonstration center for the future redevelopment of the Linpan area, we try to create a spatial symbiosis pattern of new buildings and traditional Linpan. The Qimu River and the surrounding Linpan vegetation are fully protected, and the building is surrounded by a large area of vegetable land, maintaining the living experience of farming and Linpan culture. Therefore, we didn’t choose a land that is easy to identify by the side of the road. Instead, we hope to create a path that perceives nature, while multi-layered experience scenes are realized through Linpan cascading.

Future Spatial Experience
There are all together three buildings in the spatial layout, including the corridor, the cultural center and the agricultural service auxiliary building. As an entrance to the whole building complex, the composite corridor design integrates the sloping roof into countryside infrastructure system. In the future, the tea kiosk, souvenir shop, running station and other functions will be introduced, which will redefine the publicity of the Linpan living lives. The entire corridor is floating above the landscape, preserving the habit of local animals and natural ecology, transforming the flow of villagers and tourists into an architectural space. It learns from the traditional types of surrounding countryside, and brings in future spatial experience through computational design.

The design concept pf the main building is derived from the inkstone of traditional Chinese calligraphy. The overall outline of the building is stable and upright. On the basis of which, the bottom layer is relatively solid and stable following the intention of reconstructing the pedestal and roof of the traditional Chinese architecture; the second floor is elegant and flexible. But the two are intermingled, having dialogues with each other, forming a series of topological deformations between the formation and the intention. At the same time, the roof is leaned towards the inner courtyard through an elegant curve to connect the boundary of the sky and the earth, and to rethink the elements of the place and their relationship, which make the elements of traditional Chinese architecture closely related to the contemporary non-linear aesthetics. This is also the original intention of our growing Linpan Habitat model.

The two-story patio depicts the future “leisure” life of the Chengdu Plain. The ground floor is equipped with display, reception, conference, communication and corresponding auxiliary functions. The second floor is mainly a series of independent rooms of different sizes for either tea tasting, instrument, meals and playing chess, etc. interacting with nature. Stepping up the gentle slope along the brick facade, you will experience first a relatively closed space. But as the sight rises, the field landscape gradually unfolds. The scenery and the experience are different as the sun rises and falls, and the seasons change, providing a unique place to experience nature. In addition, the agricultural auxiliary earth-covering building with brick walls is mainly used to support the storage of tools for the farming rotation over the entire area, as well as auxiliary functions such as rest and meals.

Digital Design and construction
Driven by digital technology, the structural performance-based design, is a process that sets its goal towards seeking the best performance with structural rationality through geometric form finding calculation, structural performance simulation, iterative and optimization process. This design approach emphasis on the integration of geometric logic, structural logic and construction logic, rationally realize the integration of tradition and contemporaneity.
While “using small material unit” is the fundamental logic for traditional Chinese timber construction, the laminwood and the combination of steel and wood has explored new possibilities of contemporary timber construction. In the architectural practices of today’s scenic countryside construction, we try to dig deeper into the traditional wood frame innovation and continuation under the new material and structural technology. The architectural structure of the Inkstone House OCT Linpan Cultural Center forms a light and transparent space with steel columns. The steel-wood composite structural roof achieves a simple and warm overhang space with a combination of variable-section laminated wood beams, steel square tube beams and steel I-beams.

In the main beam of exhibition center, the H-shaped steel beam with variable section is used as “ang” of “bucket arch (Dougong)”, the traditional Chinese Timer structure. One end of the H-shaped steel beam extends outward to support the wooden beam and forms a bending moment to the beam-column joint. The other end of the H-shaped steel beam extends inward to support the internal wooden beam to form a resistance moment, realizing the balance of roof at the beam-column joint. H-shaped steel beam and wooden beam are connected by steel plate and bolts. The connection is reasonable, fireproof and beautiful, force transmission is clear and good rigidity is achieved. Steel-wood composite cantilever beam has realized the comprehensive demands of material, structure, space and form. The cantilever wooden beam shows that timber has excellent performance in terms of horizontal stretching. The upper H-shaped steel beam bears the tension and avoids the problem of instability. H-shaped steel beam improves the internal force of overhanging glulam beam and realizes balance of roof by lever principle. Steel-wood composite beam doesn’t sacrifice the space under the eaves and realizes the modern translation of spatial elements “deep roof overhangs” of traditional Chinese architecture in a contemporary and concise way.
Digital simulation and optimization are fully applied in the proportional adjustment of steel-wood composite materials: for the steel-wood composite cantilever main beam, the wooden beam can be flexibly adapted according to the height and length of the variable-section steel I-beam; The overhang ratio of the steel beam can improve the bending moment of the stud joint. Meanwhile, the component section size is optimized to the minimum. For the variable-section laminated wood beam, the real-time topological analysis of the beam is performed by the millipede, and the analysis result is used as one of the reference factors for beam section optimization. Since the geometric information of the components is based on the same parameter system, the feedback adjustment of structural parameters and geometric parameters is very flexible and efficient. The main beam finally realizes the “outer straight inner curve” double-line variable-section. The form of “outer straight” is beneficial to the laying of the waterproof insulation, and the “inner curve” is the result of structural performance optimization.

The façade brick wall design is based on the traditional stretcher bond, extracting the gray scale interference of the river image, adjusting the rotation angle of the singular layer of bricks, and then comprehensively balancing the formal logic and digital fabrication logic, and optimizing to complete the final facade design. In addition, the building’s roof is paved with dark blue shale tiles, providing a unique spatial experience and architectural language by optimizing the geometric shape, division of the tiles and the overlapping areas of the pavement.

Intelligent Fabrication of Human-Machine Collaboration
The construction logic under the performance-based design presents the characteristics of the “non-standard” and “gradient” group components, and the parametric connection of the data model to the geometric information, structural performance and construction information ensures the integration of the architectural design and construction. “Digital Brick Construction” continues the exploration of digital bricks fabrication by Archi-Union. Considering that the brick wall of Inkstone House OCT Linpan Cultural Center has a large area and a limited construction period, we have made innovative explorations on the digital brick wall process of “robot prefabrication + on-site assembly”. The construction process of the brick wall reflects the high efficiency of the robotic factory prefabrication and on-site assembly construction. The total area of the digital brick wall exceeds 1000m2, and it is divided into more than 400 units, and the single unit is 2-3 m2 each built by the robotics. Finally, the brick wall was prefabricated and built under factory prefabrication and on-site construction.
▼建筑鸟瞰，building aerial view ©田方方
“Digital wood fabrication” is especially important for buildings with numbers of shaped components. The section of the roof structure and the steel-wood joints are perfectly and efficiently presented by milling. In the steel-wood structure construction process, based on the model data guidance, non-standard steel and wood components are prefabricated in the factory, and the on-site assembly is completed in less than one month, achieving good cost control. “Robotic plastic 3d printing fabrication” effectively uses renewable plastics. The customized mass production can be widely applied in the vast township scenes in China. In this project, this technique is widely used in indoor auxiliary structures, such as partition walls and furniture seats.
▼夜景，night view ©杨天周
Inkstone House OCT Linpan Cultural Center in Anren, Sichuan realized the first composite application of various digital fabrication techniques in rural China. The wildness and delicacy coexist within the building, promoting the dialogue and blending of technology and culture, just as the temperament of the forest, and the ecological background of Linpan. This is also a continuation of the local soul. We hope that the experimental construction of this project will introduce the concept of intelligence, greenness and industrialization into new countryside, and provide a new annotation for the future construction of beautiful rural areas in China.

On the initiative of the local government facing shortage of preschool education in rural area, Crossboundaries was commissioned in 2015 to design a kindergarten for the Beisha Village in Fu’ning County, Jiangsu, the first province in China that has accelerated the development of high-quality preschool education throughout urban and rural areas.

Fu’ning County has been well-known for its tradition of advocating education, culture and morality. Located in-between the North plain and the central water network in Jiangsu Province, the county’s seasonal dynamics of agricultural produce still takes up most of space and dominates as an activity and as a way of making a living, putting dwellings and all built environment in the background.

Approaching to Beisha, you would be greeted by the endless fertile plain, its horizon deluded by the mist and just occasionally interrupted by the linearly arranged trees and houses. This is how most of rural Jiangsu is: flat, boundless landscape, as infinite as the skies above it. Once you arrive in the village, the feeling of overwhelming flatness somewhat disintegrates, the skies and soil become just a background collage, sliced in pieces by the tall trees that now dominate the scenery. Approaching the buildings through this natural colonnade feels like a discovery, a special framework that works well with the small, 2-3 stories houses with pitched roofs and brick facades. And it is exactly this setting, the zoomed-in rural landscape of the Jiangsu flatland that the kindergarten designed by Crossboundaries grew from and ultimately belong to.
▼列车窗外典型的江苏乡村肌理，typical context of Jiangsu rural area outside the train window ©Hao Hongyi 郝洪漪
Appropriate scale of the project was a crucial starting point of this design and led us in creating a building cluster for Beisha, with required building volume broken down to house-like pieces, integrated by the central multifunctional open space. This integration of the outdoor and indoor is crucial to the early education environment and innate to the rural context.

In contrast, a typical school form, a courtyard enclosed by the prismatic volumes and repetitive façade that blocks off the surrounding and limits the view, with its protective, city logic would be a foreign object in this setting, an intruder in existing context, a symbol of inserted institutional architecture, rather than a place where the children would feel familiar and free, and identify it as their second home. And second home is exactly what the kindergarten for many of these children is, in quite literal sense considering that many young parents of rural area seasonally migrate to big cities for work and miss out on big periods of their children growing up.

This Beisha kindergarten functions as a smaller, slightly modified version of village, of which the scale gives the children a sense of familiarity and the interesting building relationships introduce novelty and encourage curiosity. Entering into the gate, children would first discover the main central space and the overall “settlement” surrounded by the trees and then, as they meander in between the “houses” they discover small, secret places tucked away from the main square, perfect for outdoor learning activities and playing Hide-and-Seek, just like what they always do in the villages.

The materials used for facades are locally available recycled bricks combined with white plaster, creating different faces of each “house”. The window placement on the ground floor, with several square windows of the houses facing each other, establish the visual connection between the buildings through the yards, constantly reframing the views and integrating activities and connecting inside with outside.

In Beisha kindergarten, the second floor pathways are not just connections between areas, they are also combined together into a platform of explorations for children. Once you are up on the second floor platform your experience is suddenly overtaken by the dynamic slopes of the roofs. The endless plain suddenly feels like a mountain gorge and the treetops are within a hand’s reach. This little shift of perspective enables the children to see their surrounding in a different frame and expand their everyday spatial experience.

Since its completion in 2018, the kindergarten became not only a pleasure land for children but an easy gathering place of their communities. Parents and grandparents tend to chat and share more time during sending and picking up their children.

A “Cheesy” Feast Appealing to all Senses
In the movie Charlie and the Chocolate Factory directed by Tim Burton, we witnessed a journey of imagination full of tasty stimulations. Cheese, with its tiny holes and color of yellow, is comparable to the rich and mellow flavor of chocolate. By choosing this delicacy as the main concept to design “The Dessert KITCHEN”, Towodesign produced chemical reactions among food, visual impression and emotion, and created a unique space that provides fantasy experiences.

Shopfront: Signboard? Façade? or Show Window?
▼甜品工坊轴测图，the axon of the dessert kitchen
The dessert shop is located in the sunken square of a mall, close to its main entrance. From a commercial perspective, it’s necessary to give the store a striking visual impression to attract customers. A large yellow table extends from the outside eating area to the interior, and even up to the shopfront where the logo is set.

▼奶酪之门概念生成图，concept diagram of the cheese-like entrance
The surface of the table is characterized by holes, similar to those of cheese. Customers are flowing elements in this area, making the holes variable, sometimes full, sometimes empty. It’s as if SpongeBob was turned into a huge cheese. The outside eating area, like a sculpture, has a strong sense of existence, becoming a visual highlight on the underground square of the mall. The openings of the table were designed based on functionality, which also encourage people sitting next to each other to interact and chat.

Starting from the fact that people gain life energy from food, Towodesign intended to create a dessert heaven with a church-like interior structure, full of a sense of “ritualism”. Elements of towering domes of churches were applied to the ceiling, which consists of several vaults in line with the trapezoidal plane of the site. Considering the concealment of the air conditioning vent and creation of a visual hierarchy, the ceiling presents a grid-like appearance, which also strengths the rhythm of curves.

The white grid well matches with the yellow backdrop wall, showing a proper balance between order and affinity. Teatime is like a ritual in life, which can be enjoyed in this imaginative church-like space of peace and sweetness. The bar counter also features the elements of cheese, echoing the structural eating area outside. The interior furniture presents round or curved shapes, adding flexibility to the space and enabling the customers to enjoy the feast of visual and gustatory entertainment.

In Hangzhou Senbo Resort, there is a valley covered with tea gardens. Going up along the slope of the valley to the endunder a few tall pines, the visitor willvaguely see the city in the distance as he looks out through the valley, and instantly come up with an idea of climb-ing upmountain. Tea gardens, pines and the valley highlands endow the site with some unique characteristics.

Response to site -“from heaven to earth”
▼建筑被设计成两层的度假小楼，the architecture is designed as a two-story vacation building
▼主入口和茶园视角，view to the building from the main entrance and the tea garden
The tea garden is rooted in the earth, pinesstand soaring in the blue sky and the building is situated between the two, making it the background of tea garden and a partner with pines. This architecture is eventually designed as a two-story vacation building. The first floor highlights itsassociation with the tea garden in thateach room isequipped with gardens sepa-rated by inclined walls. The far end of wall goes deep into the earth and merges with tea gar-den. The second floor emphasizes beinga company of pines to overlook the tea garden and paradise.Due to its large size, there are designed 6 rooms on each floor and a total of 12 rooms. Besides, on the second floor, there are the public activity hall and outdoor terrace as a shared space.Out of the idea ofstanding high and looking far in a distance from the very be-ginning, I climb up two floors along the public living room to make a watchtower in hope of making it the commanding height of the entire valley to overlook the whole theme park.Located in a relatively quiet place and with a couple of functional attributes, it is extreme-ly suitable for corporate team buildings and student get-togethers, etc.

Presentation in Contrast
▼屋顶雪景，roof top covered by snow
The architectural style presents a contrasting state: the first floor adopts conventional cements and limes mixed with some straws, making it plain and heavy as the background of tea gar-den; in contrast with the first floor, the second is decorated with woodcontrasts, floating in the air. The slightly random top of the four slopes of varied heights that forma changing sky-line echoes in harmony with the row of pines in the rear. The big tree in middle of the site seems to grow out of the building, which is again consistent with the site’s characteristics: protect the ecology, get rooted tea gardens and ablaze with pines.

The design starts from the perception and analysis of the site. The commanding height of skyline makes the parkalmost visible upon entering, giving people a kind of guidance and yearning. Going through the tea garden, along the continuous and changeable steps and stairs, and with light and shadow brought by the skylight at the top makes people feel a sort of expectationinstead ofdullstairs climbing.While reaching the protruding viewing platform, the visitorfilled with pride and enthusiasmwill unconsciously exclaim “I will certainly climb to the peak of Mount Tai to overlook the expansive vista of dwarfedhills.”The building ultimately expresses the unique feeling brought by being immersed in the site as an interesting highlight in the entire environment.

The project is located in Daoming town, Chongzhou city. In order to revitalize the village and promote the development of local traditional handicrafts, the owner selected a 30-years old house and transformed it into a museum displaying local bamboo weaving culture while preserving its architectural style.
崇州竹编博物馆的空间设计来源主要提取竹子本身的物理特性： “色”、 “艺”、 “影”、 “形”、 “光”。
The spatial design of the bamboo weaving museum in Chongzhou is originated from the physical characteristics of bamboo itself: “color”, “art”, “shadow”, “shape”, and “light”.
Bamboo “color” — the natural color system formed by bamboo from green to dry. The color is originated from nature and returns to nature. The overall color of the museum is white and gray, with the natural color of dried bamboo as highlight.
Bamboo “skill” — thousands of kinds of weaving processes. The old house had too many cloaking-bucket wooden structure, which was a little tangled. The designers used bamboo weave to enclose the wooden structure of the original house forming a decorative and display design effect.

项目背景 | Background Information
The project is located in Chentuan Town, Donggang District, Rizhao City, Shandong Province. As the name of “1971 Research Camp”, the base was originally the Chen tuan Middle School, established in 1971. In 2016, due to the integration of educational resources, the school stopped recruiting, in order to let The school continued to play its role in cultural education, and Chentuan Middle School was re-used and transformed into the Rizhao 1971 Youth Research and Practice Education Camp.
The renovation design is to transform the original daily teaching classroom of the base into the student accommodation space of the 1971 research camp. While satisfying the needs of the accommodation function, the memory of the old school was not destroyed and became the core of the design.
记忆与传承 | Memories and Heritage
Chen Tuan Middle School was originally built spontaneously by local villagers, who took local materials and jointly funded the construction. After decades of ups and downs, how many memories and youth Chen Tuan has carried. In recent years, due to various factors, the old buildings can not meet the requirements of the current school construction, and have been replaced by the new middle school.Party A relies on the government to build a comprehensive youth student education camp and upgrade the existing buildings to continue to serve students.
The original building structure is mostly brick and wood structure, red brick house, wooden frame roof, and red tile on the upper. In order to better inherit the historical veins of the old buildings, the red bricks were used as the main materials in the renovation, and the traditional masonry method was used to closely integrate the old buildings with the newly-reformed parts to make the whole building group more unified.

营地入口空间| Camp entrance space
The original entrance was demolished and redesigned to create a unique landscape entrance space. The special red brick masonry “1971 Research Camp” replaced the ordinary metal font posting to form a complete body with the entire space.
空间梳理与组合 | Space carding and combination
Re-combing the original red brick buildings, demolishing the old and serious small space buildings, and retaining the main building space.
▼小院入口空间，Courtyard entrance space
We regrouped the remaining architectural spaces to form five separate courtyard spaces and a casual fun landscape belt, continuing to use red brick as the main material for the construction to integrate the space atmosphere. On the basis of respecting the status quo of the building, the circular elements are used to configure the exclusive space of each courtyard entrance, which increases its interest and experience.
景观带 | Landscape belt
We use a circle of different sizes to connect the strip landscape spaces together to form three different places of leisure and fun landscape: the sunken bonfire gathering place on the west side, the middle ring road, and the east labyrinth wall.

Location and environment
This project is located in Shihuyu Village, Jiuduhe Town, Huairou, Beijing, China. And this village is located at the foot of the Water Great Wall, surrounded by endless mountains. The old building is the typical traditional quadrangle in the northern China. There is a residential house over a century old on the north of it. And in the south, it is also a quadrangle. As to the east and south side of the site, they have clear view, it is easily to appreciate the endless mountains and the Grate Wall of China.
▼绵延山脉与林海环绕的项目，project among endless mountains and forests
The old building is supported by timber structure and enclosed by masonry. It was a setting for a country love story TV series. But these days, no one lives here anymore and the building is in a state of decay. Now, the owners of this place are the young couple, a music producer and an engineer and florist. And the host spent his most childhood in the village, he has a special feeling about the whole place. They want to rebuild this place as a courtyard house, providing accommodation and social function, as well as, exhibiting floristry.
▼改造后的项目外观，exterior of the project after renovation
Juxtaposition of old and new
The old building was consisted of a main building with five openings and an annex with two openings. The depth of it was quite small, about 4.2 meters. Obviously, the small space was not able to satisfy the new functional need. Therefore, we extended a multi-function hall by timber construction in the southeast corner, which is closed to the original annex. Then, the first floor of the old annex and the new hall has been connected as a large dinning and kitchen space. The second floor of the new hall has a tea house and sightseeing platform where can see the Great Wall.

The old main building is reconstructed as three guest rooms. In order to extent indoor space, different viewing boxes have been added in each room. The viewing boxes supported by steel structure and enclosed by pine board. They look like float on the ground. In sharp contrast between the old and the new, the heavy and the light, the historical building is reborn.

The original timber structure has been reserved, while part of external walls has been renewed. We reserved the whole stone walls, but rebuilt the southern wall. Also, we redesigned the entrance and windows, as well as the viewing boxes. In addition, we tore down the shabby roof, added insulation and waterproof layer, as well as the skylight. What is more, the traditional blue roofing tiles have been recycled.

Old building represent a piece of history and memory. The key problem in our design is how to minimize the effect of newly built part on the historical building. In the end, we decided to remain the strategy of light construction, which is what we have been studying and practicing.

Architecture and nature
The rebuilding concept is based on the relationship between architecture and nature. On the one hand, we chose the raw materials of nature – timber, which is also the original bearing structure of the old building. On the other hand, we utilized large area glass to allow nature permeate into the room. Several persimmon trees have been reserved in the courtyard. In late autumn, the orange-red persimmons just like red lanterns hanging in the tree. And the flowers planted by the owner make this place become a unique quadrangle.

In recent years, with the implementation of new urbanization and rural revitalization strategies, the middle class has been affected by “urban diseases” in areas such as traffic, housing, the environment, etc. At the same time, the traditional way of life of farmers in the countryside lingers, maintaining time-honored methods of production and healthy liveliness.SYN Architects acts as an observer and, simultaneously, takes part in the process of rural construction, linking two different lifestyles in projects developed in non-urban areas. By means of precise spatial planning and content implementation techniques, the firm designs and creates new ecosystems of urban and rural integration in the countryside.The “Tianfu Xinxing – Hesheng Pastoral Oriental” Pastoral Complex is a spatial experiment based both in the philosophy of New Pastoralism and idyllic countryside scenes.

Tianfu’s New Area is a new subprovincial district under jurisdiction of the Sichuan Province. In order to build an innovative garden city, it was officially approved as a district in 2014. It consists of two parts: The Chengdu Area and the Meishan Area.TheDemonstration Project is actually located in Tianfu’s New Area. The zone in itself is an important extension of local villages proposed for tourism development. Xinxing Avenue extends from north to south, very close to the Sansheng Flower Village, a scenic area graded 4A by the Chinese authorities. The southernareasof Egret Bay Ecological Wetland Park, and Blue Roof Art Village border withZiyi Fragrant Valley. To the West and the East, industrial and logistics parks are under construction. All of these provide excellent conditions for the development or rural areas in the region. Chengdu Tianfu International Airport is also under construction in the region, and it’s expected to start operations in 2020, adding up to the foundations that will allow further economic development.
Linpan in Western Sichuan is the most characteristic rural settlement in China
▼“和盛田园东方”田园社区鸟瞰，aerial view of Hesheng Pastoral Oriental residential community
Linpan refers to a small settlement group scattered across farmland in Chengdu, Western Sichuan.This is the next step in the evolution of village lifestyles, a unique kind of progress that preserves the beauty of natural landscapes.The project sits on the construction area of the original collective of villages. Through detailed planning and thoughtful execution, the area activates the energy of Chengdu’s suburbs and provides a significant complement to the city. From now on, the original inhabitants as well as newcomers will always have people they want to visit more often. Projects to be developed after the planning phase is complete will provide a new lifestyle and improvement possibilities to the villagers, incrementing the area of both their living and production spaces. In 2018, the project’s first completed structures were residential buildings in several areas of the rural community. Here villagers can choose to start a business of their own or rent their properties to others. With rent only, they can lead a more than comfortable life. The foundations were kept entirely, while the environment and living conditions were significantly improved. Even more, the project provided a better income for the original residents of the region.

At SYN Architects, we plan from a philosophical perspective that postulates a cognitive co-development strategy between space, time and people. We believe that today’s buildings are meant to be seen by people 100 years from now, and the same applies to these villages. That is to say, as long as people like the projects for the villages, they will stay to live in them, enjoying a productive life with the right amount of quality leisure activities. And in the future, when people look at the villages, they will see them as magnificent as they are today. We solve present problems with a modern approach, create features according to the space involved, and keep up with the times. We also provide answers to the present, so they can be preserved for the future. At the same time, such planning requires design to overcome desire of expression, as the outline of individual forms by themselves is not the most important factor. During the planning phase, SYN Architects decided to preserve the groundwork of the original project, and integrate adjustment mechanisms to grant the settlements with a unique form of expression that comes from a holistic perspective.
▼已完成的田园社区-设计需要克服表现欲，completed residential buildings-design needs to overcome the desire of expression
▼已建成的和盛书院与田园生活馆-建筑手法简洁而现代，completed Hesheng Academy and Living Quarter-simple and modern approach is applied
SYN Architects divided the Demonstration Area in three zones defined by municipal roads: The Live Style Zone, the Lohas Zone and the Pastoral Business Community. The Live Style Zone presents visitors with a cluster of creativity and culture, as well as an area prepared for consumers.It can be considered the public area of the complex. The Lohas Zone provides a vast space designed for amusement and leisure outdoor activities. Furthermore, this zone satisfies the outdoor entertainment needs of families in the urban area. Finally, the Pastoral Business Community is the answer to long-term property rental. It belongs to the constructions destined to work as pastoral offices for the support of business activities that will contribute to the development of Tianfu’s new area.

The Live Style Zone– The pastoral “Taikoo Li”——New Pastoralism Demonstration Area
The Live Style Zone is the heart of the whole project. With a total area of more than 65,000m2 and a construction area of approximately 14,000m2, its main functions are commercial retail, business communication, culture and art exhibition, as well as large-scale conferences, academic forums, art exhibitions, fashion shows, etc. The center of wisdom of the whole project, the Hesheng Academy, is located in this zone.Surprisingly enough, there is an old house hidden in the project. It belongs to the client, Mr. Hu Lin, Chairman of Shengjiayuan. He ordered it to be disassembled, “moved” and rebuilt on this location. Mr. Hu considered either to live in the house or to develop it into a first-class bed and breakfast. But after careful observation and deliberation about the zone as a whole, SYN Architects redefined its functionality, placing the “Academy” at the core and extending the strong cultural attributes of the residence, to transform it into an example of revitalization of Chengdu’s rural areas. Regarding adaptations to the building, the designer chose to produce a breakthrough without parting from the original structure. Given that most architectural languages or symbols do not match with this old house, the designer simply refused all symbols. In a simple and spatial way, a horizontal plate was added to the top of the old house to create a terrace that integrates into the surrounding pastoral environment by continuation of a few simple lines, thus blending the old with the new.

The center of the Hesheng Academy is very similar to a Siheyuan, a courtyard surrounded by structures on all four sides. Here, the designer turned the space into a central lecture hall. The towering upper part of the courtyard is an enclosed space that creates a ceremonial atmosphere. Furthermore, the ceiling presents a skylight, establishing a connection between the interior and the external natural environment. In this way, changes in natural light create a free and open experience in a closed environment. Mr. Zou Yingxi, main designer of the project, believes that in a pastoral complex, buildings can be “weakened.” What matters is the activity that takes place inside the buildings, for example, to portray culture, creativity and pastoral aesthetics. From this point of view, buildings are cultural containers.

At present, construction of the college and living quarters have been completed. However, the commercial street, the lecture hall, and the floating ballroom are still under construction. These are expected to be completed in the second half of 2019 or early 2020. By then, the project will form a coherent and integral rural settlement.

The Lohas Zone: Pastoral Education and Learning Space for Families
The Lohas Zone covers an area of approximately 16.1ha, of which, 9ha belong to the theme park area. The construction area is 9,200m2 and is mainly used to hold pastoral carnivals, develop family activities or educate people about nature. The content presented promotes the integration between rural and urban areas, connecting quality agricultural products with urban ports and innovating and displaying traditional crafts. At the same time, the complex provides a space for teaching and learning, a unique educational experience to grow as a family and learn about nature.

The Pastoral Business Community: Corporate Headquarters of the Rural Revitalization Ecosystem
ThePastoral Business Community covers an area of 50ha, with a construction area of approximately 63,000m2. The local work and living environment attracts people from Chengdu specializing in cultural, technological and agricultural innovation, to become new farmers and work from a shared, smart office environment. The overall planning and design of both shared and single office areas parts from the concept of holistic plots of land that form an enclosure for the original village. Single offices are structured into small groups, and certain distance is kept between groups, to retain the original layout of the rural architecture. This approach also solves problems such as lack of natural ventilation or lighting and environmental incompatibility. SYN Architects has introduced SYN Community and SYN Coffee into the region as a service package, to satisfy the needs of the new farmers that will work from the office cluster in the future. Today, the Demonstration Area is still at the stage of simultaneous construction, but the seed of new features can already be felt in the spirit, scenery and aesthetics of Linpan. Such features will continue to provide occupants and visitors with a unique experience of harmonized rural and urban integration.

Miysis wants to pay tribute to Notre Dame de Paris with a series of images showing a personal version of what we believe could be a respectful reconstruction of an edifice that has endured for generations. We would want our proposition to evoke both its traditional structure whilst also taking on the ambitious challenge of developing a new vision that is more deeply rooted in our present. So that Notre Dame may not only recover her original beauty and continue her journey through time but also remain a striking and powerful symbol for all future generations to come. This is our vision for the future of Notre Dame, knowing that not a single proposition will be met with unanimous approval and that only simplicity and restraint are appropriate for this building that is above all a religious, historic and cultural space. We have no intention of submitting or even promoting this project. We only wanted to share our vision with you.

▼项目外观，external view of the building
Located close to Chongqing Central Park.Architectural design reinterprets traditional space essence in modern language. Generally, it follows traditional space layout featuring axial symmetry, front hall and backyard and multiple courtyards. Walls, columns and eaves are used to create courtyards and enframed scenery in different sizes and levels of openness.
▼主楼建筑遵循轴线对称，the main building was arranged along the axis
▼主楼三面环水，the main building was surrounded by water pond
The front hall is two-storey exhibition space that comes with three exhibition halls connecting each other and a cozy reception room. The main building faces public space of the city: large metal mesh and glass are used to give an air of artistic mystery; the private space of the garth is furnished with a 8.6-m-tall glass to show complete openness.
▼主楼朝向内院的开放界面，glazed facade facing the inner courtyard
There is a veranda with overhanging eaves in the backyard to make a spiritual home with “the four waters returning to the hall”. Semi-outdoor corridor in unregular size offers possibilities of transportation, socializing and relaxation, etc. In the center of the garth stands a huge bonsai of three pine trees. Large overhanging eaves enframe the sky for people roaming along the veranda, and depict a tranquil picture of pine trees and rocks for those meditating indoors.
▼后院，中心设有以三棵松树为主题的巨大盆景，backyard with a huge bonsai of three pine trees in the center
The veranda becomes a boundless and natural extension from indoors to outdoors, from building to landscape through extended glass, large-sized grey space and bonsai-featured garth. The designer divides large overhanging eaves into flat roof and pitched roof so as to deliver comfortable space experience. Internally, the suspended ceiling of flat roof is butted together with indoor space to weaken the bounds between indoor and outdoor spaces; externally, the suspended ceiling eave of pitched roof is made slightly low to enframe garth landscape from indoors.
▼平屋面与坡屋面结合弱化室内外界限，combination of flat and pitched roofs blurred the boundary between interior and exterior
The façade is designed purely according to the principle of “line, surface, volume”: solid columns and eave lines make the building look tall; metal texture and transparent glass weave a delicate appearance; lines and surfaces work together to deliver a simple yet forceful volume. The flexibility of modern building is presented in a soft-hard and virtual-real manner.
▼建筑体量由简洁的线、面构成，the architectural volume was composed of pure line and surface
Metal lines of outer contour are all custom products: columns, eaves, waistlines, bottom edges and door pockets. Custom-made metal sections bring out a forceful yet simple design. Detailed design in joints shows designers’ close attention paid to user experience as we;; as builders’ sophisticated craftsmanship.
▼外轮廓采用金属制品收边，outer contour was made by metal products
The main building is surrounded by waters on three sides. Lines in inverted triangle are designed where the external wall bottom and water surface meet to support the main building and create an “overhanging” visual effect. Columns of outer frame are erected into water; the part above water is externally decorated with aluminum sheet while that beneath water with stainless steel sheet. As ripples vary, stainless steel sheet reflects light onto the building.
▼楼梯仿佛浮在水面上，the building looked as if floating on the water
The façade of main building comes with 4500 Y-shaped three-dimensional elements to form a huge metal net. Y-shaped elements are totally man-made, and 1.2mm*2.4m plate is pre-fabricated in the factory, cut and installed on the site. Lighting system is installed above and below the metal net, so soft light comes out of triangular holes at night to make the net look totally different in the daytime.
▼主楼金属编织立面细部，details of the interweaved metal facade
As an important part of façade design, the suspended ceiling works to set limit on space through space division. Many super-sized plates are used for the suspended ceiling of garth veranda, and each plate is 3 meters long and 2.3 meters wide (max.). 30mm-thick stainless steel bars are put between aluminum plates. As super-sized plates and complex details present challenges for flatness during the construction, thickened plates, increased keel density and on-site repeated adjustments are done to achieve desired flatness at length.
▼吊顶细部，details of the ceiling
On one hand, existing techniques add details to simple design. On the other hand, rational deconstruction and restructuring makes complex design clearly presented. The large overhanging eave of the garth surrounded on three sides is separated from the main building. As the eave is complex in structure and layer, double-pitch roof, suspended ceiling of flat roof, suspended ceiling of pitched roof, eave lines and other elements are disintegrated and integrated in façade design to dovetail with the design logic of “forms reflect the structure”.
▼整体鸟瞰，aerial view of the project
The centerpiece of the project is the artistic space consisting of building, landscape and indoor elements. In this centerpiece, “building is the paper while landscape the pencil”. That is, spaces differ as viewing locations and sunlight vary, which brings an extraordinary visual experience. So it is the most charming artwork of Emerald Park.

Jointly funded by the Shenzhen Municipal Government and Vanke Group, the Tibet Intangible Cultural Heritage Museum is constructed by Vanke as Shenzhen’s key project in support of the Tibet Autonomous Region.
Being located in the newly developed Cijuelin cultural and creative park, the site of the building is on a slight slope extending from the Lhasa river valley ,facing the old city proper of Lhasa across the river to the north, and surrounded by mountains on its eastern , western and southern sides.
We hope the building will become Tebet’s new cultural landmark, integrating into the existing natural environment and urban texture with a friendly attitude as well. Meanwhile, it is expected to establish a culturally symbiotic relationship with Tibet’s important historic buildings such as the Potala Palace and the Jokhang Temple, thus forming among them a dialogue across both time and space.

Lhasa is a very special city. Here, nature and humanity, history and modernity intertwine with each other, forming the specific conditions for our design as well as the core of our thinking.
▼远眺布达拉宫，building and the Potala Palace
▼概念草图——天路，conceptual sketch—“Heavenly Road”
Tibet is considered to be a holy place close to the sky, with the Potala Palace and Jokhang Temple being pilgrims’ destinations. So, our basic design concept of Heavenly Road is consistent with the most unique natural and cultural genes here.
▼博物馆与山脉遥相呼应，building and the mountains
The concept of “heavenly road” is embodied at three levels. Firstly, we find a walking path at physical level. Inspired by the prototype of zigzag footpath of Potala Palace, it is transformed into a spatial circulation rising from the entrance of the site to the building and spiraling up inside the museum.
▼场地入口视角，view from entrance
▼西侧视角，view from the west
▼南侧视角，view from the south
▼“天路”生成，generating the “heavenly road”
Secondly, it means a unique experience of space. The main volume of the museum evolves from the main hall of the Jokhang Temple, forming an introverted and stable space. The touring path of the “heavenly road” put up in such a space creates a diversified spatial experience that makes people feel tall, narrow, spacious, dim, or bright in different public spaces or exhibition chambers, and indicates an reflection of a special journey of life.

▼内院及坡道，courtyard & ramp
The subtle psychological and emotional changes triggered by the unique spacial experience leads to a third meaning of the heavenly road, the road of heart.
▼眺望布达拉宫，overlook to the Potala Palace
▼跨越时空的守望，dialogue across time and space
▼建筑与远山，dialogue with mountains beyond
After appreciating the rich intangible cultural heritage of Tibet through a hard climb, visitors will finally reach the ending point where they can overlook the Potala Palace across both time and space, establishing a dialogue as well as paying a tribute not only to Tibet’s great natural landscapes, history and culture, but also to the holy land at the bottom of everyone’s heart.

感谢 Safdie Arch
Designed by Safdie Architects, Jewel Changi Airport, the newest development at Singapore’s award-winning Changi Airport, has commenced a phased opening in April 2019.
▼项目整体鸟瞰（效果图），project exterior overview (rendering)
Fulflling its mission as a connector between the existing terminals, Jewel combines two environments—an intense marketplace and a paradise garden—to create a new community-centric typology as the heart, and soul, of Changi Airport. Jewel weaves together an experience of being in nature with culture and leisure facilities, dramatically asserting the idea of the airport as an uplifting and vibrant urban center, and echoing Singapore’s reputation as “the City in the Garden.”
The publicly accessible 135,700 sqm center includes facilities for landside airport operations, indoor gardens and leisure attractions, retail offerings, restaurants and cafes, and hotel facilities, all under one roof. Directly connected to Terminal 1 and to Terminals 2 and 3 via pedestrian bridges, Jewel engages both in-transit passengers as well as the public at large. Each of the cardinal axes—north, south, east and west—are reinforced by gateway gardens that orient the visitors and offer visual connections between the internal program elements of Jewel and the other airport terminals.
▼“星耀樟宜”将繁忙的商业空间和环境宜人的花园融合为一个整体，Jewel combines an intense marketplace and a paradise garden—to create a new community-centric typology as the heart, and soul, of Changi Airport
位于核心地带的“森林谷”（Forest Valley）是一个阶梯式的室内花园，包含了步道、人工瀑布和安静的休息区，为游客带来多样化的互动式体验。超过200种植物围绕着位于中央的“雨旋涡”（rain vortex）——这是全世界最高的室内瀑布（约七层楼高），从建筑拱顶上的圆洞一路倾泻至底部的森林谷花园。瀑布的流量最大可达到1万加仑/分钟，可以起到为景观环境降温的作用，从瀑布收集到的雨水还将在建筑中得到重新利用。
At the heart of Jewel is the Forest Valley, a terraced indoor garden that offers many spatial and interactive experiences featuring walking trails, cascading waterfalls, and quiet seating areas. Amid the more than 200 different species of trees and fora, is the world’s tallest indoor waterfall —a ‘rain vortex’—showering down from an oculus in the domed roof to the Forest Valley garden seven stories below. The waterfall—at peak conditions flowing at more than 10,000 gallons per minute—aids in the cooling of the landscape environment and collects significant rain water to be re-used in an around the building. Surrounding the gardens is a multi-level retail marketplace on five levels that access the garden via a series of vertical canyons.

▼瀑布可以起到为景观环境降温的作用，the waterfall aids in the cooling of the landscape environment
The geometry of Jewel is based on a semi-inverted toroidal dome roof. Measuring 200 meters across at the longest span, and supported only intermittently along the rim of the garden, the integrated structure and façade system allows for a near column free interior.

▼几乎无柱的内部空间，a near column free interior
Achieving a level of comfort for the diversity of activities, as well as to sustain the vast array of plant life within adequate sunlight, required an integrated system of glazing, static and dynamic shading, and an innovative and efficient displacement ventilation system. Jewel is slated to receive Singapore’s GreenMark Platinum status.

On the fifth level is the Canopy Park, which includes 14,000 sqm of attractions integrated within the garden spaces. These include net structures suspended within the trees, a suspended catenary glass-bottom bridge walk, a planted hedge maze and mirror maze, and feature installations completed in collaboration with internationally acclaimed artists. Additional features include a topiary walk, horticultural displays, and an event plaza for 1,000 people. With Jewel, the airport has become a destination in its own right.

The city of Jishou, where the Jishou Art Museum is located, is the regional capital of Xiangxi (western Hunan), a minority autonomous zone. Initially, the municipal government considered parcels of lands in the development zone outside the city; however, we the architects proposed to build the art museum in the center of the old town because we believed that a cultural facility should be easily accessible. A river called Wanrong runs through the middle of Jishou, which makes the most central location for the art museum over the water course and the art museum then doubles as a pedestrian bridge naturally. We hope that people in Jishou would not only make a special trip to see art but will also encounter art on their way to work, to school, or to shop.

▼吉首美术馆嵌入现有城市肌理，JAM as an insertion in existing urban fabric ©田方方
Typical contemporary cultural institutions in China, such as museums and theaters, are treated as freestanding monuments, from away from the communities. In Jishou, since we think an art museum should not be isolated from its users, it is inserted into the existing urban fabric, which is built up with row buildings along the Wanrong River that house shops, restaurants, bed-&-breakfests, often with owners living upstairs. Therefore, the front entrances of the Jishou Art Museum on both riverbanks are part of the mixed-use street walls and integrated into the everyday life.

转释传统 | Reinterpretation of Tradition
Covered bridge has a long tradition in this mountainous region of China and named Fengyu Qiao, meaning wind-and-rain bridge, which is not only used for crossing river or valley but a public space where travellers take a rest and vendors set up stands. Our design creates a contemporary interpretation of the age-honored building type. We introduced art as a new program on a covered bridge while maintaining pedestrian traffic and stop meanwhile translating the formal language of the Fengyu Qiao into a modern one.

The art museum is composed of two bridges, one on the top of the other. The lower level is an open steel truss structure that resembles a roofed street for pedestrians and allows the flow of floods ; the upper level is a concrete arch cast in-situ with a painting gallery inside. In between the two bridges, glazed walls and tiled shading system enclose the art museum’s main hall for temporary exhibitions. Supplementary spaces to the art museum, such as the entrance hall, administrative office, shop, and tearoom, are situated in the two bridgeheads at either end. People can enter the museum from either side of the river.

Appreciation towards C
▼项目局部鸟瞰图，aerial view of the project(part)
It may sound alarming, but today’s rising rates of childhood obesity, hyperactivity in children, depression and other mental illnesses are closely linked to children’s exposure to nature. Today, the generation growing up under the environment of electronic products generally lacks the contact with nature in their life, resulting in a significant increase of physical obesity, attention disorder, irascibility and psychological depression in this generation of children. In the United States, the behavioral and psychological problems caused by a lack of contact with nature are known as “nature-deficit disorder.” The natural deficiency of children has become a worldwide social problem, which has reached a very terrible point. In China, the situation is even more serious. According to the survey, 48.5% of primary and junior middle school students in 20 provinces and cities in China spend less than 3 hours a week in outdoor activities, and 12.4% of the respondents have the tendency of natural deficit disorder, and this degree is increasing. In order to alleviate this problem, the United States, Japan, South Korea and nearly ten other countries have carried out special legislation on environmental education to promote environmental education at the highest intensity and rebuild the connection between children and nature.In order to better connect nature and children, the designer adds the environmental education function in the Beijing yanqing GUI river upstream urban forest project, hoping to take this opportunity to provide children with an environmental education place and facilities, and wake up their ecological consciousness.

林间最后的小孩|The last child in the forest
When Richard love wrote “the last child in the woods,” it was largely because American children were reaching a terrifying level of “nature-deficit disorder”.Our country is undergoing another round of rapid urbanization, and we are wrapping ourselves in a jungle of steel and cement at a speed that surprises the world. We are proud of yourself forward steps every day, or for their future work, for the next generation, we are more concerned about whether they have healthy food and milk powder, will get a good education resources, can in the fierce competition with their peers, and completely ignored their contact and natural. In fact, many times our impetuous state of mind let us not calm down to take the children to close to nature. — from a parent of a child. So, in China, are we the “last children in the forest”? Where do our children go from here?

景观设计师的作用&责任|The role and responsibility of landscape architects
Landscape architects should have the design ability and social responsibility to provide environmental education places for children. Based on the theories of environmental education, urban forest and landscape architecture, the project established a program of planning and design investigation and evaluation based on the theories of environmental education. Based on 97 environmental education (publicity and education) bases in protected areas, the team collected a total of 84 assessment reports and held more than 10 discussions and seminars on community, experts and officials. The project data were obtained from the national bureau of forestry and grassland research project.

The construction area of the project is located in the upper part of GUI river in yanqing district of Beijing. The site status is an urban forest with poplar trees as the main tree species, which is located between xiadu bridge in the west and sunshang bridge in the east. The research scope of the project is about 26.25hm2, which is adjacent to yanqing sports park, xiadu park and GUI river forest park.

设计策略：重建儿童与自然的联系|Design strategy: reconnect children with nature
The project team’s vision for the site is to become a vehicle for reconstructing the relationship between children and nature. Before that, the designer wanted to minimize the impact on the land, and to achieve the connection between children and nature and the site with the least amount of engineering work.
(1) Keep all the existing trees, and most areas are natural succession areas.
(2) All landscape Spaces are involved in the existing site in a minimized way.
(3) Fully respect the public will of children, parents and teachers, and design the forest classroom, nature theater, nature observation path, hand-painted climbing wall, forest park and other natural education places.
(4) Many micro-habitats are designed for animals to increase ecological diversity, enhance the resilience of ecological species and improve their long-term survival ability.

项目背景|Background of the project
Qiyun Mountain is located in Qiyunshan Town, Xiuning County, Huangshan City, Anhui Province. It is a national 4A-level tourist scenic spot and is the four famous mountains of Chinese Taoism. It has steep terrain and dense forests. The mountain is surrounded by clouds all the year round, and Yuehuatian Street suddenly disappears in the clouds, and the show is unparalleled, and the scenery is like a long scroll of ink. Qiyunshan Free House Tree House World Project is located under Qiyun Mountain, only one hour’s drive from the world’s first mountain Huangshan Mountain. It is not far from the ancient Huizhou historical villages and sections such as Tunxi Old Street. The tourism resources are unique and the location conditions are very prominent.
▼项目整体概览，overview of the project
Freedom Tree House World is a phenomenal project for holiday tourism this year. It is an experience camp style holiday villa hotel that combines forest outdoor recreation projects. The first phase of the project consists of 15 sets of independent villa-style rooms for walks in the pine forest hills. A group of creative and influential young architects are independently designed. The works are well-known and well-known for their creativity. For example, Feng Lu’s “Long Room”, Nannan Tree House, Fan Yulei’s “Tree Bag” “Other works.” Since the house project at the foot of the Great Wall organized by Soho China, the architectural event of this “elite cluster design” is no longer an individual phenomenon, but the high degree of completion and good operation are rare. The free house tree house world is relatively rare. Successful examples.
▼松林山岗间的“精英集群设计”，“elite cluster design” among pine forest hills
微观选址|Microscopic site selection
▼设计概念分析，design concept analysis
As with the first issue, designers have a lot of freedom to start with micro-site selection. The tree house world camp is a hilly environment. The pine trees are relatively short and the trunks are not too large. However, the numerous trees are densely packed at a very high density to create a vast pine forest, which is isolated from the surrounding world. Once a person is thrown into it, such as the world, only in the distance Qiyun Peak Yunyun Yunshu. This is also the most attractive part of this project. Although still adhering to the nature of the tree house, the second phase of the facility is designed to prevent guests from climbing up and down. In order to gain a better vision, the architect stayed in the camp for several days, searching and finally finding a place for the second phase. The first tree house chose a relatively high ridge as the base. This location can just look around the scenery, especially the main peak of Qiyun Mountain, which is a panoramic view.
▼项目秉持树屋的设计概念，将四周景致尽收眼底，adhering to the nature of the tree house, the project has a panoramic view
顺承与迭代|Sequencing and iteration
The second phase of the project is an upgraded version of the tree house product, which is in line with the first phase. The owner inherits the route of the elite cluster design and summarizes the past gains and losses, and proposes a new space with more space, more comfortable experience and more obstacle-free design ideas. Mainly taking into account the safety and comfort of the parent-child room, the indoors no longer consider the dramatic changes in the elevation, compared to the single-story area of the first phase, the emergence of the parent-child suite. The structure of the building is a mixed structure of cork, the main frame is steel structure, and the wood is used for the keel of the roof and the keel of the inner and outer walls. The building skin is made of red cedar directly from the local area, saving energy and environmental protection.

列柱围廊——度假仪式感的营造|Column colony – the creation of holiday ritual
Qiaoxi is trying to get the scenery around. The architect has adopted a 360-degree unobstructed floor-to-ceiling glass window, but it is not enough. We hope that the tenants can get as many opportunities as possible to integrate into the forest and touch the nature, but the local It is a rainy climate, and the meteorological record shows that the average annual rainy day is nearly 200 days. Then, a column of columnar corridors is added outside the octagonal plane closed floor glass ribbon to create a gray space that is slowly moving into the indoor space. The origin of the shape can be traced back to the Renaissance but it is much more sorrowful, although the leisure temperament of the former is not related to the commemorative temperament of the latter.
