Patching the CityWall From boundary to


combination

2012 HOOP CUP 2012 INTERNATIONAL STUDENT COMPETITION IN ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN

City walls, as the boundary of cities, in ancient


times were mainly constructed to defend
invaders and protect citizens from warfare.
From generation to generation, people have
been spending a considerable amount of
effort in building, reinforcing and mending
the ramparts for various purposes; these walls
have witnessed evolution of people, culture
as well as many other aspects of the society.
They are indeed a documentary of human
civilization. Because of rapid expansion of
city in past few decades, city walls today no
longer function as fences of cities; instead,
they are well preserved as historical sites.
Our design focuses on relating past with
present and essentially identifying ties between
history and modern architecture. In this
sense, Transformation Architecture needs to
allow audience to explore the development
of architecture from a unique historical
perspective, which requires the designer to
neither simply reproduce classical works nor
to scheme out the project without taking
into consideration the influence of historical
progress and culture on architecture. Therefore,
objective and comprehensive analysis
becomes necessary in order to preserve

old-time city walls to a proper extent.


Our inspiration originated from the memory of
our hometown city wall when we were young.
It was built in Qing dynasty, which is not an
extremely distant dynasty. However, merely
several hundred meters of the original city wall
remains because of damage happened due to
historical reasons. These several hundred meters,
nevertheless, is enough to bring him a unique
sight. Every time we pass by the city wall, we
could sense history when sniffing at the bricks,
when breathing in fresh air under its shadow
and when touching and feeling the stone with
holes. We are not the only people who have
such deep rooted memory. Whoever is living or
have lived here could never forget the city wall.
What is culture? What is history? They seem to
be not tangible, but exist in everyones memory.
In our childhood, we were always eager to
climb up the wall and see the place we were
living in. However, this wish never came true
for the reason of heritage preservation.
With the development of modern cities and
improvement of peoples life quality, city walls
as could never again be useful for citizens of
modern society. However, some people still

desire to visit these relics that are evocative


of the bygone days, as expected tourism
for most cases brings damage to the city
wall. How to solve this problem? We hope
to build a culture complex to fix the city wall
and develop it as a tourism node. It not only
provides interesting activities and makes it
possible for people to sense history under the
most natural circumstance, but also, as the
symbol of this period, leave some impression
of current society to the future generation.
For all the reasons stated above, we located
our project at Zhaoqing, Guangdong. The
city wall there is relatively well preserved
except for a small dented portion. The local
Guangdong style houses stay inside the wall
whereas skyscrapers and other contemporary
buildings lie outside. In addition, our project
emphasizes restoring the texture of old-time
ramparts and also enhancing the interaction
among residents from both sides of the wall.
After detailed and targeted study of people
and culture there, we will ultimately be able
to create this culture complex by patching
up the dents on the existing city-wall.

2012 HOOP CUP 2012 INTERNATIONAL STUDENT COMPETITION IN ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN

Site Background: The site was set near


the Sino-Vietnam border alongside the Dong
Xing River of Dong Xing City in Guang Xi
Province. As the free commercial center of the
region, the river became both a commercial
and cultural bond between the people of
the two countries. Well-loaded boat travel
along the river and people do business on
their boat. Thus the border was made lively
and vivid, even the cultural communication
hidden behind the trading was activated.
Concept: The design was rooted in
the trading activities in the border of
China and Vietnam. People are led to
build architectural space spontaneously

through the introduction of shelf, an


architectural element that can be self-built.
The shelf could be used as the structure
of the building and also the frame of the
space. It expands itself as a sequence
of the increase of trading as well as the
changes in demand, which stimulates
the development of border exchanges
and satisfies the space requirements in
various stages: Firstly, the dock. Initially the
shelf provides storage space for barges and
pushes the growth of border docks. Secondly,
the market. The development of border trading
leads to the increase of shelves which encloses
commercial spaces and become fair market.
Thirdly, the cultural center. With the exhibition

and exchange of Sino-Vietnam culture the


fair market promotes the commercial vitality.
Meanwhile the cultural dialogue is activated.
Full-loaded shelves enclose cultural spaces
providing places for cultural exhibition.
Our site was on a small island on the river. The
building grows vigorously in the river like weeds
and becomes a bond that connects two
nations which has dual qualities: commercial
building and cultural building. Border exchange
stimulates cultural communication between two
nations; whereas the presentation and spread of
culture pushes the development of commercial
trades further. What is exchanged in the
Border Exchange is not merely commodity.

Background: Located within Qaidam Basin


in Qianghai Province of China, Caka Salt
Lake is a natural crystal salt lake with a total
area of 105 square kilometers. Since 3 000
years ago, Caka Salt Lake has had a long
standing reputation for the production of
halite. Nowadays, the salt production of salt
pit no longer plays the significant role in the
local economy, resulting in an abandoned
salt railroad to the lake which greatly spoils the
natural beauty of Caka Salt Lake. In order to
reproduce the beautiful scenery and to supply
the tourists attracted here with a leisure place,
we decide to construct a complex landscape
in this areaTourist Center in Caka Salt Lake.
Caka Salt Lake is a solid-liquid brine lake with an
average depth of 1.5m and salt layer thickness
up to 15m. With the secondary bounces of
white salt crystals, the reflection of water surface
gets strengthened, resulting in the amazing
view in which the sky and the water seem to
merge. The water area of salt lake is spacious
with silvery light far and near. With blue sky,
white cloud and snow mountain reflecting in
the salt lake, we will find ourselves as if in the
realm of heaven when strolling on the lake.

on the contrary. The scenery of Caka Salt Lake is


perfectly beautiful in which our cultural complex
landscape is hidden. The body building is
buried in the salt lake which has a mirror roof
flush with the water surface, reflecting all the
scenery around clearly. Standing on the top of
the building as if we were in the center of the
salt lake and between heaven and earth where
we can enjoy the change of four seasons in
the daytime, observe the passing of starts at
night, understand the evolution of the spacetime and feel the fusion of man and nature.

2012 HOOP CUP 2012 INTERNATIONAL STUDENT COMPETITION IN ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN

summer rain, dense atmosphere in the


autumn frost and fog, white snow world in
winter, the change between the sun and
the moon while day and night alternating,
all of these are reflected in the building
which even produces stunning changes.
The evolution of nature occurs round and
round while the building never changes.

Building in Evolution: The designers intend


to transform the Caka Salt Lake from the once
insanely exploited salt pit into a pleasant and
relaxing scenic spot. In essence, this design
is to impel the sensible changes of attitude
toward nature for human beings: appreciate
nature, protect nature and live in harmony
with nature instead of trying to control nature.
The body building is buried under the surface
of the lake, aimed at minimizing the impact
in the material aspect to the salt lake. The
only interface between the building and the
surrounding environmentroofis designed
in the way of mirror image to maintain the
integrity and beauty of the original environment
instead of the antagonistic and self-standing
attitude toward the surrounding environment.
Evolution of the building is the season evolution
of the surrounding environment: the ripples
on the surface in the lake from spring and

The site of this design is basing on a period before the commercial and residential
came up, that is early 90s of 20 century. Our focus, the community of Guangzhou
old shipyard, was originally built in 60s of last century and then grew up to
considerable community groups, which occupied lager than 133,333m2.
The Guangzhou shipyard had more than 140 years history,which was called Huanan machine
manufactory administration. During the 60s of last century, this shipyard designed and built the
first ocean-going freighters in tons of China, and started to build other kinds of ships after 80s.
Now, around 8,000 artisans worked in there, and the community for those people covered
an area around 133,333m2. This site was built long time ago, and most of them were of 2-4
layers and with brick and concrete structure. As it was not considering of the urban facilities
and infrastructure, together with the tremendous changes of surrounding environment, the
community environment is difficult to comply with the requirements of those residents.

The status of this base is complex and


contradict. This community was different to
those new closed cell, it was mixed with urban
villages and other spaces, which brought
vitality to this site, however invaded occupied
the public space of it. Basing on that getting
worse situation, this community need to be
changed, however, it was an historic place
with something to conserved, remedial
strategy could be better than rebuild. Basing
on that, we suggested to develop buildings
and facilities according to historical context.

130

In that way, the method came up to be the


vital thing to consider. Our target is to give
back those green-space and public space
to people with an concept to integrate
those separated community space and
move those original clutter external public
service fo new community center.
The cruise-ship, in the scale of the city, was
digested gradually and integrated with
urban context after a continuous landscape
cutting, deformation and combination. The
cruise ship was cutting by different ways
according to different context on urban
scale, reflecting the unique landscape
of the region. And finally, the cruise ship
would formed a gesture with integration
in reginal texture in Changzhouzhen,
which is the site of our design.

Design selects the abandoned Changsha old train north station as the base point, will reconstruct, update and reuse the already
eliminated while carrying peoples good memories green train, which are supposed to connect the surrounding six minority
village. There are mainly tujia minority and miao minority around. The two minorities bear rich folk cultural activities such as
tea light play, batik, drive years field, etc, clothing and food is also very unique. The designed different types of trains shuttle
between the villages.The carriages consist of book carriage, craft carriage, batik carriage, exhibit carriage and activity carriage.
The carriage drives from city to village, bringing modern urban civilization to ethnic minorities; the carriage drives from village
to city, bringing different traditional culture to the city, which is linked to the station and becomes new cultural building.
Considering the flexibility of building area, we divide the whole area into 110 carriages, according to the size and area of green trains.
Mwanwhile ,there are 83 stable carriages forming main building and 27 mobile carriages, free movement between city and village. The
form of the building is defined by the division dimension of the track. Subdivision is followed by twisted dislocation and the structure is
supported by structural steel frame. On the lower level, the finely volume is widely available and open to every direction; on the upper
level, dislocated volumes gather together, creating a large-scale space to satisfy the different requirements of specific groups.

Inherit of the clan


The modern ancestral hall
design

2012 HOOP CUP 2012 INTERNATIONAL STUDENT COMPETITION IN ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN

In the modern society, damage happens


to the social relationship as with to the old
buildings. With the rapid development of
economy , the hierarchy of economy has
replaced the clan organizations which
have a splendid history of a thousand
years. family size continues to shrink, The
clan culture is in danger of disappearing.
Relying on the ancestral hall , We propose
the design scheme of a modern ancestral
hall, which will serve as an a platform of
clan activities. We hope people could reconsider the significance of the family
culture in modern society. The core of
cultur evolution is inheritance too. The old

134

things get different images in different


eyes, so we leave them as they were
and add interesting things onto it.
The Tung family of Liukeng village has a
history of one thousand years, however,
clan relations is also seriously affected .
We choose the ruins of Dongs ancestral
hall which was destroyed in a battle
aimed to defend the clan as the design
origin . The organization structure of
Liukeng village was distinctive. Liukeng
village gets eight lanes, seven of which
serve as redidential place and the
eighth intersects with the others and was
designed tobe a commercial street.
To retain the ruins of Dongs Ancestral
Hall, we locate our building alongside
the Chaochao Street which is the main
street of Liukeng Village. A sculpture
is located on the crossing point of
axis of the old and modern ancentral
halls. The old buildings in the site were
destroyed in the same war with Dongs
Ancestral Hall. Walls of the new building
grow out from the retained ones.
During the daytime of ancestor
worship, people get out of their lanes
and join the parade of ancestor
worship. God Pageant is held at night.
People hold lanterns and dance in the
street. At other times, the exhibition hall
serves as praying and serving place.

Tea Road Tea culture


experience center in
Mount Wuyi

2012 HOOP CUP 2012 INTERNATIONAL STUDENT COMPETITION IN ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN

For our designation, architecture is not


the most important form any more. Track
of time under different conditions could
be reflected: first, we bring peoples
tea activity into an integral farming
culture; then, we should not only keep
the history and strengthen peoples
awareness of tea road, but also add
a convenient way to combine the tea
mountain and the building, that is to
say: to combine the activity of teapicking and the complex building space.
It provides a place for tea-picking,
tea-making, Cha Doo and enjoying
of the tea for the local people and a
chance of visiting and experiencing
the tea culture for the tourists.

The city's cultural complex should


reflect the history of the site, the city's
culture, as well as important historical
events. The texture of tea garden

before represents in the site, being


superimposed on ambient momentum
at the same time, and mixes landscape
and building together. Based on respect
the ancient tea-picking path, we design
a new path, which together form the
core space similar to the Xiamei village.
It not only provides convenient Teapicking path, while mixes the fuction of
tea-picking, tea making and tea-tasting
together,. By stressing the intermediate
core space and opening horizons of
the building through the upper and
lower dislocation, the building finally
deeply rooted in the environment.
A culture is reflected by turning the
original tea on the mountains into tea for
drinking. The Cultural Road is embodied
as the spce of Tea Road. The tea
farmers followed the pattern of the
formed Tea Road, which is a process

and a kind of cultural that tourists in the


tea road can experience. Tea Road is
combined with the building and create
a space to meet with the tea production
and consumption-related activities.
Tea, embodies the philosophy of a
mood and a natural symbiosis. Building
materials are used as raw material, to
form the innocent architectural style.
The main building exterior wall is mainly
built with the rubble abound in the Wuyi
Mountain, by taking the appropriate
local technologies, also with wood to
make building more original, but also
the next Umemura a continuation of the
formation of the regional architecture. By
setting off the delicate steel and glass in
a special part of the building, materials
contrast contemporary, which highlights
the delicate nature of the building.

Curing the Scars of


Nature Museum design
of the development of
human and nature

140

The development of the relationship between


human beings and the nature is a circular
process. Nowadays, the industrialized China
is faced with various consequences resulting
from excessive exploition of nature. The
relationship has shifted from men-over-nature
to a harmonious coexistence. Here in this
design, we site Hongdong in Shanxi Province, a
county full of severe environment problems, in
order to heal the wound which human beings
brought to the natureto solve the problem
of the collapsing mines by a combination of
architecture and landscape to enshrine the
developing procedure of men and the nature.

area kept on extending over time, it expanded


only longitudinally while maintained relatively
stable transversely, where the soil is solid and
sturdy. As a result, we laid the foundation in the
stable zone and chose to use the suspended
structure. The building was suspended by trusses
from the core stress columns at the center or
on both sides instead of touching the ground
directly. In this way, the distortion of the base
and the destruction of the building resulting from
the sinkage of the foundation were avoided.

The evolvement of the building is not merely


reflected by the changes in the basethe
mine itself. Adapted to this concept, the
designed building also proves that the problem
is an important step in the development.
Moreover, the visitors recognition towards
men and the nature keeps changing as they
go through the building from the top down.
The ground level is a square, which functions
as circulation and recreation space. With
the guidance of the landscape wall, visitors
can walk around to have an overall view of
the square and the exterior condition of the
collapsed mine. In this way, visitors can get
a deep impression of the scars of nature.
The first and second floor underground is the
main architecture, the function of which is to
communicate, display and recreate. The round
routine provides the visitors an opportunity to
rethink the relationship between humans and
nature. The third floor underground is the natural
park to provide recreation and relaxation.
Visitors can wander in the park to see the new
appearance of the mine, so they can discover
the new way to get harmony with the nature.

is the red dot in the masterplan and the model. They are measured with minimum point to
serve the most area in the slum. Then they are connected by the new piping connection to
act as a continuous water infrastructure to supply water to the people. Masterform of the whole
new development is not predictable as the open space and new housing are autonomously
growing together with the decision of the people inside the slum. This design is also a response
towards a new vision of urban planing, in which the main driving force of the whole urban form
is a basic element, the water piping, which people are gathering or moving around for.

The site is situated in Dharavi, Mumbai, which


is a high density and chaotic slum area,
which is said to be one of the largest slum in
the world. And its informal industrial activities
continuously draw people out from the city
center of Mumbai to the countryside Dharavi
to get their job with cheaper rent for living. So
this continuous action grow the population
density up to a situation that the Slum Redevelopment Authority tries to re-configure the
existing situation. However, it is not welcomed
by the local dweller which they think it ruins their
dynamic life and commercial activities inside.
Because the planning is never a success, the
problem inside the slum is still growing larger
and larger with the population growth.
This project starts as establishing another
form of Metabolism that is balance between
the two opposite direction: both top-down
(the formal Metabolism) and bottom-up (the
informal Metabolism) approach. The project
is the antithesis of the modern urban planning
strategy. Rather than using high degree of
guideline which aims to prevent over-crowd and
chaotic , some informal elements are used.

The biggest problem in Dharavi is water. The


water is coming from the main infrastructure
piping which is only passing through the slum
area. Official and illegal water piping is built
to get water. But the water tap only supply
for 2 hours per day. And the rainfall is only
concentrate in the monsoon season. So they
need to store the water and protect them
greatly from pollution. In which this is the starting
point of the methodology of the project.
From the rainfall data, also from the water
consumption data, a simple calculation is
done to measure the size of the water tank,
which is the main source to store rainwater
in the design. From the calculation, the
effective zoning is also produced which

The Inverted Image of


History Design of Huan
Sha River historical museum

2012 HOOP CUP 2012 INTERNATIONAL STUDENT COMPETITION IN ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN



In the old days, Hangzhou used to be a water city where many rivers coursed
through the city. However,with the modern development of the city, many rivers
were filied and buried. Huan Sha River was one of those rivers. For people who
used to live along the Huan Sha River, they all had beautiful memories about
their life on the shore of the river. Nowadays after the river was fiiled, the area
was renamed as Huan Sha Road. The secenery has no longer existed.

With the over development and industrialization, places that are humanistic have become
very rare in the city, and the forests of skyscrapers made people feel more distant
from this architecture. This design intends to re-build the past experience of the HuanSha River. When we make the historical scenes re-appear in our modern city,hopefully
this will encourage people to recall the images long buried deep in their mind.

design of Zhangwu, Anji

2012 HOOP CUP 2012 INTERNATIONAL STUDENT COMPETITION IN ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN

The base is located in Anji County, Huzhou City, Zhejiang Province, Zhang Wu Village. Zhang Wu Village is the hometown of a
famous local calligraphy and carving artist called Changshuo who is also the Xilingyinshes first president. There are a stream
and many willow trees around the village, streets and alleys staggered. The village has always had the reputation of half-day
village for its beautiful scenery. Zhang Wu Village has a long history, and has kept the carp-shaped village pattern formed the
Ming and Qing Dynasties. It is a full-fledged development of the community and the residents have strong cohesion.

Considering the reality of the village, the museum design focuses on how to make the new building integrate into the high density of mature
communities better. The design was inspired by the ice ablation. Therefor the dispersion of a single function is taken in designing and finally to be
layout as a small-museum-community. Under the premise of respecting the original pattern of the village, the villagers more involved in the flow lines
of the museum group to form a mutual warmth and drawknot gesture, allowing faster integration into the old community and organic updated of it.

2012 HOOP CUP 2012 INTERNATIONAL STUDENT COMPETITION IN ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN

Xixi Wetland Cultural Center is located in Xixi National Wetland Park of Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province. It is beside the Xixi Wetland
Tourist Reception Center, Sheraton Hotel, Banyan Tree Zhuang upscale hotel and so on. There is already a Xixi Wetland Museum
built at the south part of Xixi wetland. The block covers an area of about 20,000 square meters, and building land area of 14,986

The program is designed to combine the Xixi wetland landscape and the building. It offers a variety of touring space for visitors. During the tour, the
tourists can fully experience the culture and the environment of Xixi wetland, and increase their awareness of wetlands.The shape is inspired by the
image of the merge of hills and houses created in the ancient Chinese painting. The building is generally divided into three blocks. The footpath
extending from the ground to the roof merges them into one piece architecture. The view is varied when walking around. The interior space not
only breaks the boundary of indoor and outdoor space, but also introduce water, grass and other natural elements into the construction.

NEW LAYER ON HISTORY


The old town renewal in Beijing

2012 HOOP CUP 2012 INTERNATIONAL STUDENT COMPETITION IN ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN

The core proposition of the design is to discuss the old town renewal
in Beijing. When considering historical blocks and architecture,
I prefer to use dynamic preservation as strategy, which means
that its not only important to preserve the material objects, but
also crucial to preserve the character and quality of space, and
connect them with modern contemporary life. Im opposed to
image-selling architecture. At the same time, Im also against
the nostalgia idea, which suggests the past time is the best time.
What I want to do is to step back from any certain style to a more
fundamental level, namely the organization and character of
space, to write a layer of contemporary life. Therere two main
challenges: 1. how to extend the extraordinary quality of traditional
space; 2. how to merge it to modern contemporary life.

B-B

The scale of courtyards in Beijing is very comfortable. Many


characters have architectural value, including proportion, the
relationship between solid and void, and the relationship between
house and nature. In the new design, I start from some feasible
features, such as shapes and scales, the wavy feeling of roof and
the scale of faade, to create the new building, and merge it with
the old one. The form is not my focus. I just want it happen naturally.

EMBEDDING AND
GATHERING Chongqing
Yongchuan art gallery

2012 HOOP CUP 2012 INTERNATIONAL STUDENT COMPETITION IN ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN

changing traditional way of designing enclosed


art museum, this project is such designed that
the real museum and void urban open space
become two rings embedding into each
other. Third, the embedding of artificial work
and nature: drawing lesson from the relations
between the nature and artificial works in
Chinese gardens, the building is developed into
an all-in-one entity in which artificial architecture
and natural landscape embrace each other.

152

This project is a culture complex project of


Yonghchun Art Museum in Chongqing, China.
The site is located in Yongchun Metro edge,
with a display of traditional Chinese painting
and calligraphy mainly. Design with the idea
of Chinese painting to study the dialectical
relationship of architecture and environment,
exhibit and exhibition, and put forward the
principle and concrete way gathering and
embedding. Through the embedding and
gathering, the integration of city and nature
and reconstruction of place are realized.
Embedding is an integrated sustainable
and inclusive urban strategy and architecture
technique, and it is a basic operation in this
project. It is divided into three levels. First, the
embedding of building interface and scales:
being located at the interface between the
city and the nature, this new building is a gentle
transition between the nature and the city;
second, the embedding between building
space and urban space: with the intention of

Gathering is the core of theory of place


represented by Norberg-Schulz and important
strategy for creating sense of place. It is divided
into three levels: gathering natural landscape
and human landscape surrounding the
space into the human scale; artistic display
of rainwater drainage, collection and recycle;
and different groups of people gathering
here to promote integration of each other.

Gathering is a key to form a place. Rapid


urbanization has divided the original water and
mountain landscape site into several parts.
Considering these, we attempt to gather Qi
Shan Mountain in the north, Xinglong Lake
in the south and local cliff stone prototype
into the human scale of this project so that
larger scale of space can be perceived.
Different groups of people gathering here
promotes the integration of each other.
Public cultural architecture must promote
formation of a fair, vigorous and rich social
relation. Not being a pure art museum, this
project will be a large living room in which
people from all classes can appear, enjoy
or just walk. Visitors, surrounding residents,
professional spectators and painting and
calligraphy enthusiasts are content with their lots.

wall as architecture
Revitalization design of the
west street in Dujiangyan

2012 HOOP CUP 2012 INTERNATIONAL STUDENT COMPETITION IN ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN

As part of the ancient tea-trading route, the once prosperous West Street block in Du Jiangyan Dam no
longer functions to facilitate tea trading as it was in history. Instead it has lost itself in the flood of history. The
scheme intends to revive the urban design of West Street from an urban architectural perspective rather
than creating a cultural building with mono-function. During the investigation we found that West Street is
characterized by two distinct features. First, the mix and co-existence of ancient city wall segments with
residences; second, the mini scale of the streets, alleys and courtyards as well as the enjoyment of mazes.
The wall reflects the viability of sustainable development in its evolution, and the thickness of the wall offers
possibilities for future buildings to take shape. Only this section of walls can be preserved because of its
combination with local residential, which implies that things that last long must have the value of use. The
segments of ancient city wall in West Street is restored and reinforced as a result of high architectural density
and a lack of public spaces, thus, the function of which is transformed and provides a pleasant open
place for both local residents and visitors. Therefore, this design started from the reflection on boundary
triggered by the city wall. So we created a new wall around the segments of the ancient city wall to serve
as the boundary of the cultural complex. Compared with the entirely closed ancient wall and the open wall
that blurs the boundary of interior and exterior, the new wall is neither too close nor too open. That is Wall
as Architecture. The logic within the wall is the creation of unordered yet flexible and interesting spaces.

SOHO

2012 HOOP CUP 2012 INTERNATIONAL STUDENT COMPETITION IN ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN

We choose to design a vertical contemporary art museum at Prince Street


and Bowery in Manhattan, a pivotal geographic and cultural intersection
where generations of artists have lived, worked, and contributed to the
ongoing cultural dialogue of the nation. The intention of the project is to
create variety of spatial/visual dialogues between visitors and the art, visitors
and visitors, visitors and pedestrians, visitors and the city. The concept of
seeing and being seen manifests itself in the way of how exhibition spaces
are organized the vision is comprised of the horizontal(the vision between
the visitor and the city) and the vertical (the vision between the visitors
from different floors). The museum holds both interior and exterior gallery
spaces. All interior galleries are located on the very top of the building
to separate the city from the art and the natural environment,reflecting
the art as an escape from the urban life and allowing for the enjoyment
of natural sunlight.Coming out from the biggest exhibition space on the
very top of the museum, the spikes penetrate through the floor plates; two
spikes become exterior galleries; two serve as elevators; some are used as
vision channels; some serve as structural columns. The lower exterior gallery
visually connects to Bowery, facing the Prince St; the mid-level exterior
gallery projects a view to upper Manhattan; the top gallery framesa view
to lower Manhattan. Standing in an exterior gallery, the visitor can both
view the city (horizontal vision) and the space of the top gallery (vertical
vision), and at the same time, the visitor can be viewed by the pedestrian
and the user in the top exhibition space. The art is vertically separated from
the city, yet the exhibition space is horizontally connected to the city.
Besides gallery spaces, there are some other supplementary
programs, including a theater, a storage, a mechanical room, offices,
a gift shop, a learning center, and a cafe. The theater is located
underground, eliminating the noise from the street. The learning center
and media center is right underneath the interior gallery, preparing
the knowledge of the art that will be view for the visitor. The offices are
located on the back of the museum, away from the street, providing
privacy. A stepped cafe is placed in one of the interior galleries.

Site renovation of Bank of
Shanxi

2900m2

2012 HOOP CUP 2012 INTERNATIONAL STUDENT COMPETITION IN ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN

The base is located in Taiyuan. This city has a long history. But with
the urbanization being, it is becoming hard to find the trace of
the old city memory. The old building which built upon the base is
Shanxi Bank In the republic of China era. And the base is located
in the central business district of Taiyuan. Due to the economic
development, the old building will be abandoned. This project is
a conceptual design which is trying to combine the elements of
classical and modern and face to the shock of modernization
rather than the preservation of cultural relics passively. Taiyuan
is an important city of the modern music in north China. Many
musicians started their music career in this city. Needless to say,
music hall is the right option of the new function of the old building.
In order to create the surrounding music atmosphere, there will be
a small music square (2900m2) in the south of the building. And it
will be an important open space in the dense commercial area.
Gaily decorated classicism architecture is a kind of extremely
beauty at that time. And some of the modern music such as rock
music, pop music and part of light music is the representative of
the extremely modern culture. There must be an amazing scene
when the two different kinds of beauty meet and collision. The new
iron construction and membrane structure, which is light and full
of tension, contrast with the
old bank, which is heavy and
huge. In order to make it in
harmony with the new space,
the old building was exploded
to an open space. The
Ionic column is an essential
element in this project. After
the rebuild, the old building
is support by new steel
construction. And the six Ionic
columns were moved to the
north of the music hall. Then
the beauty of classical was
shown on the open space.

2012 HOOP CUP 2012 INTERNATIONAL STUDENT COMPETITION IN ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN

Chishui, Guizhou province, is home to phyllostachys pubescens due


to its warm and humid climate, where the handcraft industry once
thrived and residence featured suspended buildings. As mechanized
production developing, the once flourishing handicraft fades gradually
and Bamboo Street which has been retained in the green belt has
to face the oncoming demolishment.How can the Bamboo Street
transform itself to make the handicraft to be a inherited culture and
preserve the memory for the city?

We have realized that the bamboo has the strength of extension


comparable to steel with a short growth cycle. This reminds us of using
living bamboo as building structure, which repairs the green belt along
the river while, creates a poetic architectural space.We have designed
a floating base, suspended walls, transparent roof in chaos, to create a
free environment for bamboo and update the architectural structure.

The long history of Dali shaped the distinct architectural scale and urban
structure of this ancient city. With its well-developed tourism industry, rich
national culture and various cultural buildings, this ancient city itself has
become a cultural complex. However, as the society changes, traditional
architecture cannot satisfy the requirements of current cultural buildings
any longer, therefore, transformation is quite necessary.

centre design of Kashi

2012 HOOP CUP 2012 INTERNATIONAL STUDENT COMPETITION IN ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN

164

Kashi is an city in the southern border of China where


some ethnic minorities populated, known as Pearl
in West Road, and the unique folk craft-makers
togetherwith the old local high profile constructions
have became a city card presenting the Kashi style.

The site of design is located close to the most wellknown handicraft street named Mustang bowie,
where lots of craftmen gather here in Kashe.
This design inherit the local traditional handcraft
culture. Considering the landform, a form of back
sets square with half soil-covered is selected after
investigating and analyzing the condition of the
site, which provides an openning communication
space for residents and visitors, at the sam time
integrates the surrounding environment. In the inner
space, wu use some patios, which are usually uesd
in Kashgars tranditional countyard, to make the
vivtors experience the original style and features of
Old Kashgar during visiting. In order to respect the
local building style, one of the main works is pick up
the regional culture signs duing the processof design.
Traditonal elements such as arcade, Overhead
Building Spanning a Street Kashgar, flower window
and platform are reformed and put into use in
modern building to reach the effect of minxing but
differet. As to materials, we take adventages of local
immature soil and colored-glass and use low-tech
to make it an ecological buiding. Considering the
type of business, our design bases on the exhibition
of handcraft from beginning to end to create a folk
handcraft experience hall which combined with
handcraft exhibition, experience and creation.

The main idea of the design is to satisfy the individuals


requirements for modern fuction and spatial quality
as well as to lead the Kashi regional architectural style
and context to get a better protection.

Base Status: the base is located in a fishing village away from Yantai city with cluttered environment, In the future
it will be transformed into industrial port and Now the fishing village is surrounded by industrial area, with many workers.
Design Problem: how in the construction level, to improve the living
environment of the fishermen and reserved fishing village life?
Problem Analysis: live mainly in the base of Fishermen farmed fish for a living, and retains many
traditional elements in their lives, such as seagrass housing, the harmonious relationship between
the fishing craft, fishermen crafts and fishing skill . there is a lot of time and labor that can be
tapped if able workers, fishermen, fishing villages organic organizations together to carry out a kind
of new industrial activities, you can use the new economic growth point to support the traditional
lifestyle of fishing village at the same time the vitality of the entire region will be activated.
Taking into account the cultural quality of workers and fishermen, the more obvious new industry is tourism activities
such as fishing holiday, but there are some drawback of this activity: First, not competitive compared to other regions,
the second, the quality of the local residents will not be significantly improved for local environmental destruction.
Solution: the construction of a cultural arts center to promote local development. The Entire building activities are divided into three stages.
Phase 1: the establishment of creative space: There are some uninhabited houses in the fishing village can be transformed. (Tactics include:
traditional practice, the steel skeleton and local production of stone as the support and maintenance of the structure, the construction
of sea grass roof houses, to ensure its economic and environmental protection). Attract the artists surrounding areas to the local settlers,
so that they can be creative here while giving arts education around the workers, fishermen and nurture local artistic atmosphere.
Phase 2: the establishment of the exhibition space:With the fishermen and workers have a certain artistic foundation,
and regional specialties to attract investment, the new exhibition space, its spatial qualities must guarantee
open, fusion with the landscape space, creative space, creating a natural Ferris experience.

This program focuses on a Campus Activities Center opening to students as well as citizens.
Normally, school is considered as a cultural institution, whose cultural nature is shown through its social
functions. However, schools are often isolated from the public, citizens are not directly connected
to the precious cultural resource. On the other hand, for students on campus, the schoolyard is
a simple synthesis of learning and living, not a place of cultural pluralism.This program targets a
Campus Activities Center that satisfies students diverse needs besides learning and livelihood.
Located on the vast open space between the North Campus and the South Campus of the
Central Academy of Fine Arts, the program is started with considering the form of cultural
synthesis, and ended in a single building settlement. Space such as sports ground, library,
canteen, theatre and exhibition space are juxtaposed independently on an interconnected
site, forming a special relationship with connection but without interference. Meanwhile, a
settlement is created,having its own streets and courtyards. This settlement activates the peripheral
space, thus promotes the activity of the campus. The open attitude implicit in the building also
encourages the citizens to come around, forming a channel between campus and society.

existing ruins of theinn buildings,which has great historical and cultural value.
It has twice been included in the List of dWorld Heritage in Danger. However,
the narrow streets, old houses, and poor infrastructure there have all effected
the quality of life of residents.They can only seek better lighting, more of the
bay and a more appropriate scale bydemolition, alteration and addition.
Heritage protection has always been a difficult subject, especially
these large buildings like Jimingyi.The original inhabitants were not
allowed todamage the buildings there. So many young peopleleave
becouse of thelow quality of life especially the lack of public space, cousing
the lack of manpower.As a result, Jimingy lost its vitality. We proposed
a solution for the contradiction between the cultural relics protection
requirements of government andthe living needs of residents that to build
a new house to meet basic living and leisuredemands. Through the
transfer of the needs of alter the old house to protect the old house.

The new houseprovides activity


space for residents as a cultural
building, including classrooms, library,
childrens playroom, etc.taking the
living habits of local residents into
consider,we design a large area of
the courtyard and an outdoor cinema.
Retain the position and materials

2004

Faced with the historical wheel of the evolution of large-scale urbanism, even Erdos, a city in the grassland that will remind one of the scene of high sky
and distant land, is imprinted with a highly urbanized mark after 2004. How to build a place where occupants can relax themselves for a short time in a
high-density urban space on an empty land of densely, narrow and long residential area?
Before the urban appearance was clearly changed by residential area planning, the citizens gather and carry out daily activities freely in certain public
areas without a clear spatial identity, such as the Lilongs (lanes) in Shanghai and Hutongs in Beijing. These neighborhoods do not create an atmosphere
of welcome, this is the Residents Club deliberately, but people gather, live and entertain themselves here harmoniously. They visit each other
quite often and influence and disturb each other mutually, which seem to be countless pictures of the Bustling Street Life. However, nowadays the
emergence of Residents Clubs in the high-density residential communities is the result of the helpless reality of current society. It means that, as a result
of the lost of exterior spaces with blurred boundaries but comfortable in size, activities such as playing and communication, which shouldnt have
been limited into fixed places, are defined into small, narrow and closed interior areasThe starting point of this scheme is based on this background.

SUSPENDING COURTYARD
Cultural complex design

2012 HOOP CUP 2012 INTERNATIONAL STUDENT COMPETITION IN ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN

The cultural complex is located inside the ancient


city of Dali which has a deep cultural deposit. The
old buildings in the site needs a good connection
with the cultural complex. Given to the process of
the evolution of Dali folk house, this design extract
elements and deformation it. We combine them
again with modulus. In the result, we develop
the traditional courtyard to a new more
humanizing tridimensional courtyard space
with high-usage, which is more fit for modern
people to live, work and communicate with
each other. Throughing studying the vertical
direction of traditional courtyard evolving, we

move the traditional courtyard into the air,


result in the mode of the air courtyard, that is
the suspending courtyard. We apply some
characteristic details and feel of local folk house
into the design as reply for the architectural
regionalism. We recombine the elements
with new modulus, but the essence of Dali
traditional folk courtyard has been kept by us.
This cultural complex set storing, exhibition,
academic exchange, science studying,
library, minitype theatre, training, food services,
accommodation, relaxation, shopping as

one. Different need of mentality and space


of different groups of people can be satisfied.
These function spaces would avoid problems
brought about by solo function. The first floor is
set as open city garden space for local people
and tourists. All of the different kinds of function
spaces are arranged above the second floor.
The main circulation among the abundant

and city relations angle, identify problems
and propose appropriate positioning and
transformation strategy.Aims to provide a more
positive, harmonious urban space.The the
base (Shibanpo area) is located in Chongqing

Color Chongqing buildings and streets.
Choose to keep the design transformation both
inside and outside of prison walls showed the
opposite state of life, also has important cultural
position in the entire Area.By the number of
field research, we found that the region of
Shibanpo demographic composition of the
complex; surrounding the high density of the
built environment, the lack of open space;
The same time, the surrounding rich cultural
elements, the lack of cultural activities space.

To solve the above problem, we propose


to retain the prison walls and part of the
construction, the transformation of the old
prison for Area cultural center. The entire
site for nearly 40 meters north-south aspect,
toward the Yangtze River, Chongqing Nanan

and the old prison combined to form the face
of the old culture of meditation space. Inside
the west side of the walls of old Chongqing

364+1 stage
A stage for villagers, a
dream for all

Our design is chosen on Yueshan Village which is located in Qingyuan County, Lishui City, Zhejiang Province. It is an ordinary and peaceful
yet unique village with lasted 30 years Spring Festival Evening performances customs.Most adults of the village leave their home and work
in other big cities. The left-behind children and seniors, however, enjoy their peaceful life. After investigation, we learned that, the Yueshan
Village, since 1981, organizes the uninterrupted New Year party in the village every year. Every household will get involved either by preparing
performance or organizing the event. The New Year Party bridges not only the children and seniors but also enriches their lives with joy. More
importantly, it accounts for a reason for the migrant working adults to come back home and celebrate the event with their families.

Therefore, we design this cultural complex as a rehearsal space as well as a community center for villagers. Two rehearsal spaces
are intended to be placed by the sides of a ramp which connected to two main roads. It can provide area for square dance, large
drama and so forth. Conveniently, people who pass by the shortcut ramp will be able to watch and enjoy the performance on the
square not only on the New Year but also rest of 364 days. It brings the audiences and performers closer by such design. Also, such area
creates more communication between villagers. By providing the villagers such multi-purpose cultural complex, we are hoping villagers
have better experience in their rehearsal and performance, which might be crucial to attract the migrant workers to come home.
Thus, we named our design 364 + 1 Stage. Wishfully, it would be a fantastic stage for bridging villagers and their families.

university, hoping that it will become a


bridge between school and the society.

So we hope that we can provide such


a cultural complex display platform,
where students can put their work here
in the midst of the residential area,
thus encourage the communication
between society and the students.
As a design of bridge, we hope
our design could act as a bridge
between all classes. And let the city
owns more humanistic care.

Our design From Yes To No is a thinking of


the relationship between architecture and
the city. This is an original planning as a part
of the region, and later, because of a variety
of reasons, buildings have built up here. But is
that really bring bonus to the city? The answer
is no judging from current situation. Less and
less people enjoy the atmosphere here. So we
want to deal this problem from the opposite
direction, which lead us to think that maybe
subtraction would make the city better. Now we
live in the city filled with buildings, what always
make us nervous and afraid. Every of them is
a colossus stand on our side and need to be
looked up at. They stole away from us the green
space, the sunlight, the sky... Our design hopes
to equal the relationship between people and
building, thus one can head-up or even look
down the buildings, like watching a landscape.

From Yes to No

From

Architecture to Landscape

We once want to title our design From


Architecture To Landscape, but then feel
it can not fully express our thinking. What
we really mind is not only from building to
landscape, but also from physical to virtual
body, from internal to external, from things
we can see to those we cannot ... So the
conclusion from yes to no express that we
need a reverse thinking of our current city
planning rules outside from the traditional
relationship between architecture and city.

What culture synthesis to our city is just like


another soul. Generally speaking, the city center
refers to the city business center, but now it
seems that the city cultural center is gradually
walking into peoples life. People who go to
Beijing, always have an appetite for 798 art
park, South Luogu Alley and houhai, which shows
Chinas new generation of young people do
have more cultural needs. But cities in China
unlike Beijing, rarely have so many cultural area.
Such as Harbin, now the city center is a chaos
place including shopping area, good and evil
people mixed up, which has no appeal. We
want to build our culture synthesis next to the

During the long historical period of urban development, architecture witness its variety of evolution processes. City needs to be successive both
in time and space. In this design, the site we choosed is between the ancient culture street and Haihe river in Tianjin, where comple and diverse
conditions exist. The ideas of the museum design mainly came from several aspects: 1. The new building would be a part of the Ancient culture
street, it stretch along the shore, becoming an extend of the chulture street; 2. The main building is hanged, like the bridge on the river nearby, which
can also keep the shore appeared. Meanwhile, that makes different levels for activities from top to bottom; 3. In the aspect of elevation,we imitate
the Chinese traditional roof form calledYingshan.Hanged reversedly, the elevation make strong comparision to the street.In the aspect of structure,
we imitate the Chinese traditional structure called Chuandou.In that way, the beam becomes the support of the floor ,on which activities occur.

to combine football,
carnival, dancing, parkour,
rendezvous and open-air
theatre into one place.

FOOTBALL: Football field serves as the


spiritual space in the center of every favela in
the slum-dense city Rio de Janeiro. Children
fond of football will rush across streets after
streets with a ball starting from their home,
to the center field to play football.
INTEGRATION: Integrating the transition
area where streets blend with buildings
renders the exterior space outside buildings
the cultural scenes which provide various
service facilities to satisfy different demands.
That improvement fuels the transformation
from slums to urban communities.

FIELD: The center field, which aims at


enriching the slums culture life, is designed

APPROPRIATION:
Transform part of streets
into the dribbling training
tracks leading to the
center field, which follow
the classic dribbling
route (where the great
football players used
to play). Therefore, the
appropriation (which
indicates that the functions
of ordinary streets change
into the activity space,
the living memorial
pavilion as well as the
service delivery places
which meet peoples
daily demands) will be
realized. By that way of
appropriation, slums,
the home to numerous
football stars, can inspire
their next generation to
go for the football dream
and remind their people
of the football glory in
their daily activities.
