Quite crazy that it took 4+ years to fix that building. Don't think it even took that long to build. Would it still be the Mandarin Oriental?

they must have changed the architecture of the interior at much greater cost and effort than just rebuilding from new. Basically the materials needed all to be replaced (titanium zinc alloy that sent down so many dripping embers), and Rem Koolhaas's design of the giant atrium right to the roof, that acted like a giant chimney.

One thing is that it took long to rebuild, another how long it will take for the reputation to rebuild. A fire like this is not what you like to think about when checking in ot a hotel.

Thank god it went up before it opened, rather than after. Koolhaas's hothouse n all that. It would could have had the potential to be the worst building fire in history. I think many lessons were learned - no more illegal fireworks, no more zinc alloy, no more giant atrium's through to roof height.

Any idea which of the plots is by Samsung? This is NBBJ's proposal for Samsung HQ (not sure if they won the competition since the renderings are dated June 2012).

New Beijing airport targets 2018 opening
Updated: 2013-04-11 01:40
Xinhua

BEIJING - Construction of a new airport in south Beijing will start next year, and the facility is expected to be completed and put into use in 2018, local authorities announced on Wednesday.

Preliminary work prior to the construction of the airport, located in Daxing district, bordering Hebei province, is under way, sources with the Beijing Municipal Commission of Development and Reform said.

They added that the airport will be linked with three expressways, including one that will be newly built along the southern central axis of Beijing.

Under-way discussions over an urban rail transit to connect the airport are likely to be finished within the year.

The new airport project was approved at the end of 2012, as part of efforts to spur the development of Beijing's southern suburbs.

Meanwhile, an air transport-related economic zone is also planned, with an investment of 84 billion yuan ($13.39 billion).

Upon completion, the new airport is expected to ease traffic pressure on Beijing Capital International Airport, which remained the world's second-busiest airport in 2012 in terms of passenger throughput. Its passenger volume reach 81.8 million last year, according to a statement published by the airport in January.

Iberia Center for Contemporary Art / 伊比利亚当代艺术中心 at 798 Art District


By Local Approach Architecture Studio / 场域建筑


from archdaily.com

Quote:
Architects: Approach Architecture Studio
Location: Beijing, China
Architect In Charge: Liang Jingyu
Art Director: Lu Qiong
Design Team: Peng Xiaohu, Zhao Ning, Li Honglei, Yang Jieqing, Zhou Yuan, Gu Wei
Engineers: Beijing Jiuyuan Tri-Star Architects Partnership
Photographs: Courtesy of Approach Architecture Studio


Iberia Center for Contemporary Art is a re-development project located in the 798 art district, Beijing. The original site was composed by a group of industrial buildings, The biggest one is around 1000 square meters area with 8 to 11 meters ceiling height.

The concept of the re-development is to convert these separated buildings into an integrated art exhibition space while keeping the industrial appearance as much as possible. A 50-meter-long brick wall was introduced to the street interface in order to join the 3 old individual buildings into one single continuing façade. The new façade, however, is not completely replacing the old façades, rather, interacting with the old one by its shape and tectonic concept.

The interior wall was preserved while a few new function boxes were inserted into the lofty space. Besides the exhibition space, it has offices, library, auditorium, café, art shop, etc.

Tree Art Museum / 树美术馆 at Songzhuang Art Colony / 宋庄, Suburban Beijing.

By Local Architect Daipu / 戴璞


from archdaily.com

Quote:
Architects: Daipu Architects
Location: Song zhuang, Beijing, China
Design Team: Dai Pu, Feng Jing, Liu Yi
Area: 3,200 sqm
Photographs: Shu He

Structural Engineer: Huang Shuangxi
Water Engineer: Lei Ming
Mechanical Engineer: Wang Gepeng


Located in Songzhuang, Beijing China, Tree art museum lies beside the main road of the area. Original village has vanished, replaced by big scale blocks which better fit for cars. Even if renowned as artist village, it’s difficult to stay or enjoy art exploration without local artist friend’s introducing. So, the first idea was to create an ambient, a public space where people would like to stay, date and communicate.

I hope people might be attracted into the museum by the view at the entrance. Their eyes would follow the curvy floorslab coming from the ground all the way up to the roof. People could choose getting into the space either through the ramp or the courtyard with a pool and tree on the first floor. Sky is reflected onto the ground, with reflecting pool together, helping people to filter their mind and forget the environment out there.

The first courtyard was separated with the main road and dust outside by a bare-concrete wall. People would stay and chat under the tree in the courtyard, or, just feed fishes by the reflecting pool. Meanwhile, they could enjoy artworks and watch other people lingering inside the building through curtain wall. In the bare-concrete wall, there is a corridor which could be utilized to exhibit books and small sculptures. The curvature varies slightly along the path.

The second courtyard introduces nature light to the back exhibition hall and meeting room on 2nd floor, while separating the public and privacy needed. The curvy wall implies people to the other side of the building, and introduces them to come to the public stairs-plaza on the roof, where people could sit and enjoy sunshine, or look down to the pool or even chat with people down in the courtyard.

There are six and half courtyards on 2,695 square meters site. Besides the two bigger ones for exhibition, there are four more courtyards lying on the upper part. Two yards apply sunlight to the back space and introduce skylight to the exhibition hall below. The other two yards are on the top of the floor, which also open to sky. By taking real and pure expression, this project hopes to create a place where local people and visitors would communicate with nature light, trees, water, and contemporary art. This simple and plain idea will spread out through their experience of this space.

Because the curator Xia Jifeng / 夏季风, being a writer, poet and art critic himself, he has this strong affection for iberian culture, especially the Spanish Art.

And he organized dozens of Chinese contemporary art exhibitions in Spain.
