China 1st VAM project to complete construction in Chongqing 2010

BEIJING, Nov. 30 (Xinhua) – China's first ventilation air methane (VAM) program will start construction in Chongqing in the first quarter of 2010 and go into operation before the yearend, according to the Chongqing Development and Reform Committee on Monday.

The project would be materialized via cooperation between Chongqing Songzao C&E Co., Ltd., a local coal and electricity producer, US AES Corporation, a power generator and distributor, and Shenzhen Dongjiang Environmental Co., Ltd., said the committee.

In specific, Chongqing Songzao C&E Co., Ltd. will be in charge of capturing and processing VAM, a pollutant produced in coal extraction and useful for power generation, which was estimated at 17 million cubic meters annually, or 200,000 tonnes, equal to the same amount of carbon dioxide emissions for 500,000 cars in a year.

Besides, AES, whose operation income hit US1.6 million dollars in 2008, is the first US power company entering Chinese market. So far, it is mainly engaged in gas, gasoline, hydraulic, wind power, and thermal operation and has set up nine power factories in seven Chinese cities with installed capacity at 2675 megawatts.

It is disclosed that AES also plans to carry out another five programs alike in Chongqing, with investment value estimated at 300 million yuan.

I can see two sport facilities here, but they look too different from the ones in the renders. The tower would be in the next plot southwards that we can't see here, right?



Edit: Also, on the right edge we can see the river. Hmmmm I can't figure out where the tower is, sorry

Here is a very detailed report about these sport facilites
http://www.sportmonline.cn/TiCMS/xwbd/1126.htm

All the facilities will be finished at the end of this year and most of them have already been built(the pic is a bit outdated). There are 36 badminton fields, 16 tennis fields, 6 basketball fields, volleyball fields, five-player football fields and a golf exercising field(that green land in the photo I guess) etc.

It is reported that every day more than one thousand people go there to do exercises in the daytime. There's activity every day and athletic competition every week.

It is named "People's Exercises Center" by National Sports bureau of China.

All these exclude the swimming pool(the closest egg to Sheraton) which is not part of the PEC and it's quite costly. You have to pay 400 RMB per month or 2800 RMB per year. A single ticket costs 30 RMB.

That tower is not only built for Athletes but will also be used as office space and hotel.

Urban Forest

By the end of 2009, MAD has completed the concept design of a 385 meter high metropolitan cultural complex in the city center of Chongqing – The Urban Forest.



This is the third skyscraper designed by MAD following the Absolute Towers in Toronto and the Sinosteel International Plaza in Tianjin, China.

Urban Forest by MAD
December 10th, 2009

Beijing architects MAD have designed a skyscraper for Chongqing, China, with gardens at each level.

Rather than consider the project vertically, the architects envisage a stack of floors, each slice shifted horizontally to create spaces for gardens and patios.

The 385 metre-high building will be called Urban Forest.

Here’s some text from MAD:



Urban Forest

By the end of 2009, MAD has completed the concept design of a 385 meter high metropolitan cultural complex in the city center of Chongqing – The Urban Forest.

This is the third skyscraper designed by MAD following the Absolute Towers in Toronto and the Sinosteel International Plaza in Tianjin, China.

MAD proposes a new architectural concept for the course of Chinese urban development – to actualize a sustainable multidimensional high-rise within China’s youngest municipality, where nature reincorporates into the high-density urban environment in the near future, to evoke the affection for nature once lost in the oriental ancient world and bring to the modern city dwellers.



In the year of 1997, Chongqing became the fourth direct municipality in China.



As an important pole of the growing economy in western China, the city area of Chongqing is more than twice of those of Beijing, Shanghai and Tianjin combined.



Such macro-scale urbanization should not only pushes economic growth and material prosperity, but also foster the evolution of the city’s cultural essence. Chinese cities have gone through the process of once starting from nothing, to following contemporary Western civilization urban pattern. Now, the overall economic infrastructure has oriented the direction of future development towards inland China.



What lies in the future of cities? How should one grasp the concept of emerging high-density cities of China in the context of a scenic town such as Chongqing? How does one discuss the future of architecture in Chinese cities on the base of Eastern Naturalist perspective and in the new context of China’s unique economic, social environment and globalization background? How to engage the city dwellers with an experience of nature when its presence of steadily diminishes in the face of the ever intensifying concrete jungle.



Throughout the process of contemporary Western urbanization, skyscrapers were the symbol of technological competitions, prime capitals and the formal enslavement of the powerful and the rich. Sustainable ecology became more of a demand for comfort; while the yearning of a return to nature was left ignored. The Urban Forest draws inspiration from the perspective of nature and the man-made in Eastern Philosophy, and ties the urban city life with the natural outdoor experiences.



The shape of the architecture mimics mountain range, shifting in a dynamic and yet holistic rhythm, and becomes a continuation of nature. Unlike its preceding counterparts, The Urban Forest no longer emphasizes on vertical force, instead it concentrates on the multidimensional relationships within complex anthropomorphic spaces: multilayer sky gardens, floating patios and minimal and yet well lit nesting spaces, the architectural form dissolves into the fluid spatial movements between air, wind, and light. In this environment, people encounter nature filled with unexpected surprises.



The fusion between Eastern humanism spirit and urban public spaces pioneers in the making of a sustainable multidimensional city – The Urban Forest will not be a piece of mediocre urban machinery, but an artificial organ that lives and breathes new life in the steel-and-concrete-filled city center.



Chongqing, the youngest municipality in China, holds great potential in its urban planning and construction and has the capability to be built into a most livable city, a city of pleasant environments, a traffic-jam-free city, even into a city that runs into a complete urban forest. A city with aspiration and vitality shall be courageous in envisioning and designing its great future. – Bo Xilai (Mayor of Chongqing)



In October 2009, The Urban Forest from MAD debuted in the Heart-Made, Europalia exhibition at the 2009 Europalia China. It represents the most challenging dream of the contemporary Chinese architecture — a type of urban landmark that rises from the affection for nature. It is no longer a static icon but an organic form that changes all the time with people’s perception.
