FLOATING MARKET | 1.1

FLOATING MARKET TIME, HUMAN & EVENT

The fishing industry has a long history in Hong Kong, with the fish-market acting as a main anchor of social interactions in the past. However, the memory of the old industry is fading fast in an information society. At present, the existing fishing industry run their programmes individually, which leads to a disconnection between the general public and the industry. In order to honour and sustain the perseverance of our predecessors and their ability to strive in the face of adversity, we propose to revitalize the fishing industry by arousing more attention among the community.Our purpose is to integrate multi-programme through open building strategies. This design provides the opportunity for the public and the fishing industry to generate synergetic interactions to retain the competitive edge and social values. The multi-programme design approach requires a considerable degree of variation, so a mechanism is developed to coordinate with a flexible media – Water, which is the most significant resource to the fishing industry and the most “open” natural element. Firstly, water provides the floating force for structure, hence, users can adapt the spaces to different spatial configurations with minimal mechanical forces. Secondly, tidal change is further taken into consideration as a “open forces”. The water level fluctuations are integrated into the mechanism to create dynamic spatial responses to programmatic changes with respect to time.

Technical Detailed Section

Ebb Tide Panels are fixed by the joints on the column.

Flood Tide Due to the floating power, the panels rise and are movable as the friction is reduced.

In this timeline, the wave shows the different water level of a day. Below the central line means ebb tide and the panels are fixed on the column; Above the central line means flood tide and the panels are floated on the water .

背景

設計概念

-近年,有越来越多艺术区出现,可惜很多也未能持续发展下去。 -很多创意艺术小区也是由旧楼或是旧小区改建而成,如北京市的798艺术 区,上海市的八零零艺术区,香港特区的伙炭艺术工作室和牛棚。 -在这些地方的也是一些较知名的艺术工作团体,他们自成一角,与市区隔 离,与市民缺少沟通和互动。 -若青少年加入这些艺术区,因着以上的原因,青年的艺术将会难以扩展。

-以湾仔的公共空间作为青年艺术家与市民交流平台。 -以穿插于旧楼的手法,将多个公共空间连接,在湾仔的上层空间中,建构成 一个艺术网络。 -因应既有城市空间的元素,安排网络中功能上的布局,令新的网络融入小区 中。 -上层空间除作为人流上的连接外,还会安排休息,交流和展示的空间,通过 视觉上的连系,吸引人们进入网络。 -为加强网络于区中的渗透性,我们在地面加入一些步行街,同时给青年人提 供表演场地。 -为了建立青年与小区更密切的关系,出租屋提供了一个便宜的暂居所,让青 年有更多机会融入小区。

設計理念 -一个艺术区或青年小区不能独自生存,那么属于青年的创作空间,应该何去 何从? -我们联想到在已有的城市空间中,加插一个属于青少年的艺术网络。 -透过这个在都市中的网络,希望青年艺术工作者能与原有的小区产生互动, 让原有小区的市民认识自己,融入小区,获得更多机会表现作品,找出发展艺 术的空间。 基地概況 -以香港的湾仔作为试点,进行改造。 -湾仔由渔村发展为今天的商住混合小区,经历了超过二百年,当中不少建筑 已有四十年以上的楼龄。 -有些老式建筑因缺乏良好的配套设施,所以空置情况比较严重。 -因过去规划问题,导致区里出现很多被忽略的公共空間。

To Kwa Wan Waterfront Development | 3.1

To Kwa Wan Waterfront Development C i ty Ext ension Gen e r a t e w i t h O l d D i s t r i c t

In this part of Kai Tak new development, the site is close to the old To Kwa Wan district and the new Kei Tak Develpment district. While designing the new development, we think that the most important point of urban planning is to respect the neighborhood’s urban frabic, building scale, living culture and characteristics. We dislike the planning strategy of the new develpment nowadays, “large scale develpment with a huge podium for shopping centre, and nobody walk on the street”, function, but not human. Hence, we started with finding out the significant elements of the district and we discovered that To Kwa Wan have lots of unique culture/ charactistics but are facing out due to lack of users or inheritors. in order to sustain the local culture, we would like to integrate them into the new development.

HISTORY OF TO KWA WAN Qing Dynasty

1950s

1960s

Song Wong Toi is the most important monument in To Kwa Wan which witnesses the development of To Kwa Wan from Song Dynasty to now. The monument was stood by the surrounding villager in Song Dynasty around 1200s-1300s to memorize the last king of the Dynasty who taking Sacred Hill as refuge to escape from the Mongolian army. During the Japanese occupation of Hong Kong in 1941-1945, the boulder and the surrounding villages including Ma Tau Kok village was leveled for the extension of Kai Tak Airport. Fortunately, Japan had surrendered himself in the world war II before the boulder had fully destroy and the Chinese character had survived. After the occupation of Japan, the remaining portion of the stone had shaped into rectangle and place in a small park which is especially built for the stone in 1945. After the World War II, Hong Kong started to develop as light industrial city and To Kwa Wan followed the trend that many industrial was set up here in 1950s-1960s. Due to insufficient of land supply, Kowloon began several reclamations work which also took place in To Kwa Wan. In the first reclamation, the new land collected the Hoi Sam Island to To Kaw Wan Road.

CULTURE OF TO KWA WAN “large scale develpment with a huge podium for shopping centre, and nobody walk on the street”, function, but not human.

Shops in To Kwa Wan are mainly on the street level, and local peoples are used to go shopping on the street, rather than in the shopping mall.

Cattle depot artist village is a huge character of the district. However, as the people living in this district mainly come from base course, they have insufficient educational level and long working hours, they would not interested in the art issue. And this leads the visiting rate of the artist village is low.

In the future, there are three big magnets affecting the economic activities of the site, the Cuisine pier, Stadium and Metro Park. They can attract tourists and people from other districts to the site.

In the master planning, large mass is avoided, in order to retain the human scale in To Kwa Wan. School is usually a massive building to accomodate its function. Below is the partial master plan to show how it break down into smaller mass and integrate into To Kwa Wan.

of a BAN YAN

This studio is an experiment on adapting the natural ‘building’ techniques and then transforming them into spatial volumes with man-made construction technology. A series of exploratory models are made in the very beginning of this studio in order to have a better understanding of BAN YAN. The ultimate concept model os learn from the tree study of Piet Mondrian, I tried to simplify the form of a BAN YAN tree into the simplest composition, i.e. a composition of straight element.

CONCEPT Urban planner separates the dynamic world in to regular geometries, and regular buildings are “grown” from these regular geometries. However, a Ban Yan breaks the regular GEOMETRY and extends itself much far away from the regular GEOMETRY by the supporting of aerial roots to give a comfortable place to those under the canopy.

AA SummerMake 2011 @ Hooke Park

­ AA SummerMake 2011 was an intensive, annual, opportunity to engage in a live architecture project at Hooke Park. This programme provided me hands-on engagement in workshop-driven design and production methods. An intense cycle of conception, modeling, prototyping, testing and building of experimental 1:1 architecture introduced me to the methods of an architecture focused on making. I was immersed in a comprehensive wood workshop with CNC machinery as well as essential metal, fabric and other material workshop tools. SummerMake 2011 has the theme of ‘Voyager³’ to engage and enhance the multiple-points-of-view from a site adjacent to the ABK / Frei Otto designed Workshop. I worked in teams with Ben Leclair, Wojtek Nowak, Cheer Huang Cheng, Martynika Bielawska and Katie McClure. Ben and I were focus on the design of the‘Voyager³’ and the other fours are focus on the 1:1 phototypes.

Design Concept _Theme_‘Voyager³’ - a spaceship parking beside the Workshop and waiting for takeoff. - Explore the unknown of the forest (=space) _Form_ - repeat some very simple modules (wood panels) to form an elegent tower. - the framing in between the wood panels make a strong focus to the forest (=space). -the tower have a tendence to move forward.
