Momentary City in Hefei, China by Vector Architects

Friday, July 31st, 2015

Article source: Vector Architects 

Like many other cities in China, Hefei is undergoing a rapid transformation. The original urban fabric was torn apart and discarded, replaced by giant blocks of anonymous structures and forms. The present Hefei is just a fleeting moment on its relentless march toward the future. So, we call it a “Momentary City”.

COFCO Ruifu Residence in Beijing, China by W. Architectural Design Co., Ltd.

Thursday, July 30th, 2015

Article source:  W. Architectural Design Co., Ltd.

An Unforgettable View

As Wang Changling–a renowned poet of the Tang Dynasty– illustrated in his work Shige (Chinese for Poetical Patterns), the art of writing a poem involves three individual layers: landscape description as the physical layer; inception of emotions from the landscape as the emotional layer; and the expression of one’s own emotions as the emphatic layer. The integration of these three layers into the shaping of space is a refined interpretation that suits perfectly the tier-by-tier progressive atmosphere created for the COFCO Ruifu Residence.

Molewa-Mount Lu World Architecture International design competition in Ruichang, China by AtelierBlur/Georges Hung Architecte D.P.L.G. & Partners

Thursday, July 23rd, 2015

Article source: AtelierBlur/Georges Hung Architecte D.P.L.G. & Partners

Competition winning scheme for Plot 15 of the MOLEWA residential design competition in Ruichang, Jianxi Provence of China.

Residential design in China faces multitudes of restrictive design issues: One, facing heavy regulations imposed by local planning bureaus residential design often results in very strict interpretations of massing and building separations. Second, a developer-led and market driven standard of apartment layout creates a homogeneous and monotonous building typology that litters the urban landscape offering very little choice to potential buyer / inhabitants. Thirdly, out-of-date local customs remains a design barrier that is difficult to overcome by users accustomed to certain arrangements of functional layout that is a reflection of the developer-led model, fueling the perpetual circle of the same type of residential layouts.
