just when i was about to say how incredible the 'stack of plates' look, the "final" design had changed again!
The first design was Out of the box, just to be reapcked In the box!!

Although i find the original design extremely silly, don't they already have a tower that looks like the new design on the peninsula? Its just too boxy and plain to be honest. In a dense forest like this one, the new tower needs to be spiky with maybe a spire, something that conforms but not too plain. I was hoping something like Ping An Sz or maybe pinnacle Gz. Something like Jin Mao would be a waste since its so detailed for such a dense environment but something like West Tower Gz is too plain as well.

eww this sucks, not a bad design but nowhere near as innovative as the original, but that was very strange and probably would have been extremely expensive

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.

Original design (proposal 1) is interesting, but doesn't suit the Chongqing, anyway this is prime location so something tall will be built here sooner or later

Project name should now read as Jiefangbei Book City.

With a Bookstore at its Core Aedas Unveils Mix-use Project Inspired by Rolled Book Scrolls

Quote:
Aedas has unveiled the plans for its Chongqing Xinhua Bookstore Group Jiefangbei Book City mixed-use project, a complex of retail, residential, office, and hotel space with a Xinhua Bookstore at its core. Based on an ancient Chinese prose that states “knowledge brings wealth,” the project aims to integrate the concept of a book with the cultural elements of Chongqing to create an interactive commercial space.

Inspired by the form of a rolled book scroll, the central building in the project appears to unfold through stepped terraces, “implying the spirit of wisdom and knowledge.” These stepped terraces furthermore reflect the landscape of Chongqing, which is called the “Mountain City.”

The complex will additionally feature three themed plazas: The inclined rooftop and cultural plaza at the podium become a new cultural destination for lifestyle and entertainment activities, while the sky cultural plaza enriches and extends the civic space of Jiefangbei Plaza to provide a refreshing and tranquil environment in this business center for users to relax and enjoy.

Expected completion of the complex is set for 2020.

Spectacular, I can pass through the fact that it can be under the 300m mark, almost for sure... Maybe around 290/295m!

Good guess! Turns out it's 286m (938 ft)

It looks like a candle with wax melting down the side. Great design.
