It could very well be the same architect that did the Aqua tower, it's not uncommon that architects and or architect firms just recycle their own stuff.

Another boxy project for Jiangbei New City CBD. Chongqing Bank Tower, by KPF.


Ground breaking ceremony.


No height, no floors, no decent renders.

So this one is the domestic proposal and will compete against SOM, KPF, etc, right?

Urban Forest by MAD architects brings together nature and the urban metropolis
Posted by: Aditi Justa | Dec 1 2009




After vertical farms, now it’s time to see urban forests standing high. Deriving inspiration from mountainous Chinese landscapes, MAD architects have planned to build a commercial high-rise structure in Chongqing, China. Dubbed the ‘Urban Forest’, the tall building brings nature and open space together in a crowded and compact manner. The 70 story building is made up of curved, abstracted shaped floors which have been layered slightly off-center from one another. A core cylindrical structure connecting the floors supports and hosts the mechanical systems and elevators.



Each level of the structure from bottom to top is protected by full-length glass windows providing the perfect city view. It also incorporates varying size balconies, crystal-clear pools, beautiful trees and amazing courtyards. The floors are a mix of open spaces and offices or residential space. The urban forest is the beautiful amalgamation of nature and the urban metropolis.

ARCHITECTURE | EXPOSITION
Les Chinois apprennent vite le contemporain
Guy Duplat

Mis en ligne le 14/10/2009

Les architectes contemporains chinois sont vite devenus des "grands".
On s’extasie souvent sur le "miracle chinois". Il apparaît à nouveau dans toute sa force à la très intéressante expo Europalia sur l’architecture contemporaine chinoise. "Heart-made" (car, selon la tradition chinoise, on construit avec son cœur) présente une cinquantaine de projets des architectes actuels les plus marquants. Et on est sidéré de voir comment ils apprennent vite et souvent bien. Le génie chinois est aussi celui d’assimiler les avancées d’autres pays et de les réutiliser si bien que leur art dépasse celui des modèles.

Tout qui voyage en Chine constate d’abord qu’on a beaucoup détruit du patrimoine et construit partout à une échelle inimaginable, avec une architecture très souvent très médiocre, destinée à répondre au plus vite à des besoins urgents (notre architecture "tout venant" ne vaut souvent guère mieux).

La Chine part d’un terrain vierge. Pendant 60 ans, elle fut à l’écart des mouvements modernistes ou post-Bauhaus, plongée dans la guerre ou la dictature maoïste. Elle n’a donc pas de tradition moderne. De plus, la profession d’architecte n’existe vraiment que depuis 1992-1993 quand le concept de profession libérale fut créé et a permis de susciter des vocations autres qu’architecte fonctionnaire.

L’expo montre très bien comment cette architecture chinoise nouvelle est née dans l’orbite de quelques grands bureaux : Oma de Rem Koolhaas, Zaha Hadid et Steven Holl. Jusqu’à copier leurs tics. La politique des grands travaux pour les JO de Pékin avec les bâtiments emblématiques (nid d’oiseau d’Herzog & de Meuron, tour CCTV de Koolhaas) a donné un coup de fouet supplémentaire à la création architecturale.

Mais les architectes chinois se sont vite affranchis de cette tutelle pour créer leurs propres formes dans toutes les directions de l’architecture "mondialisée". Le cas de Man Yansong est emblématique. Ce jeune architecte est sorti de Yale en 2002 et gère aujourd’hui avec son bureau "MAD", une dizaine de très gros et spectaculaires projets. Le plus emblématique (notre photo) est cette tour de logements et commerces de 385 m, faite de tranches inégales superposées. Elle se présente comme une ville verticale avec des parcs et des arbres. Une réminiscence futuriste des ruelles anciennes (les hutongs). "Urban Forest" est construite pour l’instant à Chongqing, la ville-champignon devenue en quelques années une des plus grandes de Chine. Le même bureau construit à Tianjun une tour avec une façade en nid-d’abeilles, comme un exo-squelette, et sa petite tour jumelle. Pour Beihai, MAD construit un énorme ensemble d’hôtels, maisons et bureaux, comme des montagnes russes. Mais ils peuvent varier leurs cibles. Lors de la dernière Biennale de Venise, ils présentaient un projet de science-fiction : une ville en étoile (comme le virus du sida) qui viendrait se poser au-dessus de New York ou Paris, comme une menace chinoise. Mais ils ont aussi construit une splendide maison/club house aux lignes purissimes, se mariant parfaitement avec le paysage de la Mongolie. Pour les "hutongs" de Pékin très menacés de démolition et qui manquent de sanitaires, ils ont imaginé une sorte de bulle-parasite métallique qui vendrait s’accrocher sur les toits.

Ces architectes nouveaux qu’on découvre à l’expo représentent tous les courants contemporains : l’écologie et le recyclage, l’architecture durable, celle du "geste", ou au contraire le retour au modernisme. Avec, souvent, une belle créativité. Un livre-catalogue, très bien fait, accompagne l’expo et présente le meilleur topo à ce jour de l’architecture contemporaine chinoise.

L’expo inclut - rien n’est anodin - un immeuble à Taipei et la gare de Lhassa, par Cui Kai, qui, pourtant, accueille un train très critiqué par les amis du Tibet qui y voient un outil pour l’envahissement du Tibet par les Hans.

"Heart-made, The Cutting-Edge of Chinese Contemporary Architecture" jusqu’au 21 février au Civa, espace la Cambre, place Flagey à Bruxelles. Du mardi au dimanche, de 11 h à 18 h.
