BEIHAI | Fake Hills | 200m | 55 fl | T/O

Year 2008
Location China
Typology Residential Apartment
Scale 492,369sqm
Status Under construction


Throughout China's ultra-rapid urbanization, attention has been focused on set-piece architecture: opera houses, museums, stadia. However these would-be icons are the exception rather than the rule. The vast majority of development in China's new cities takes the form of residential schemes, often standardized and cheap to guarantee a quick return for the developer. Is it possible to build high-density, economically viable housing which is also architecturally innovative?

This development is located in the coastal city of Beihai, on a long, narrow waterfront site. The design concept combines the two typologies that usually define residential developments (high rise towers or long, low rise blocks) to create a bold new structure in the form of a long slab. This shape can maximize the views of residents, but can also easily appear to be a monolithic break between the waterfront and the land behind it.

The solution is twofold: to cut into the slab, creating a sculpted form which references the shape of the hills that dominate the region's landscape, and to cut openings through the structure, to further allow space, views and light to penetrate it.

A further reference point is traditional Chinese architecture's obsession with nature. Rather than siting the building in a perfect, man-made natural garden, our structure becomes the man-made natural shape itself: fake hills for the residents to live on. The design provides both a high density solution and a new landmark for the city.

-----------------------------------------

随着中国飞速的城市化建设,大众所有的注意力都转向剧院、博物馆以及体育场等建筑上。然而这些所谓的标志建筑只是中国现行建筑模式的一些特例。绝大多数城市仍然是以的住宅开发项目为主,那些开发商大都会选择廉价和毫无特色的住宅方案,以谋求快速收回成本赚取利益。我们有没有可能拥有既高密度又经济可行而又有地标性的特色住宅呢?

本项目坐落于沿海城市北海,位于一条狭长的海滨区域。设计概念结合了两种常规定义的元素:高层/长形的塔楼,和低层板楼,在长形结构基础上创造出大胆的新型结构;这种结构可以最大程度的实现建筑内的远景观,但是它也一定程度的阻挡了海滨与内陆之间的视线。

我们通过两种手法解决此问题:在塔楼中间切出像山一样的造型,形成了自然的山体景观,并在建筑的结构上面开洞,空间、海滨景观以及采光都能通过这些开洞渗透进城市中。

与建造一座刻意的人工花园相比,我们的建筑本身就是一座人造的自然景观---一座供人们居住的假山。此设计本身既保证了建筑的密度,又形成了这座城市的新地标。

Beihai is in southern Guangxi province, famous for "Silver Beach" a popular detination for Chinese tourists. They have quite a few big hotels along the beach, and from the rendering it looks as if this project will also be in the same area. I think I will agree with the others and say this design is interesting, however I will wait to see the finished product to decide whether or not I like it.

I like it, it somehow depicts the hills commonly seen in Chinese paintings, hence the name...

it really is better than boring commieblocks... its maybe not wonderful, but think of all the ugly commieblocks that dont have to be built thanks to this "building". china has to find ways to house millions of people, save space and keep some aestethic level. it could have been a more "3-dimensional" design instead of this "wall". but i think its a good way to start :-)

I think the long building looks more like a sea dragon than hills. It does seem to be better the monotonous blocks of government housing, but it really could be better too.
