"Every place is given its character by certain patterns of events that keep on happening there. " "The more living patterns there are in a place - a room, a building, or a town - the more it comes to life as an entirely, the more it glows, the more it has that selfmaintaining fire which is the quality without a name." Christopher Alexander
03 ARCADIA | Architecture Studio 3th Year, 2014.3-2014.6 Independent Work Instructor: Li Xinggang Published in AC Architeture, 2015.10
Project Information Site: An open space in Tsinghua University, BEIJING, P.R.C Area: 1450 mÂ˛ Design Discription: The topic of this studio is "Stage for life", which calls for attention on relationships among people, dailylife, architecture and nature. Each student is supposed to create 9 characters and a space with multiple function including studying/working, sleeping, entertaining and meeting/social. For me, the routine and mundane life of ordinary people just like you and me has great value. Architecture adapts to, accommodates, and activates way of living. My characters are all typical people within Tsinghua University. They are brought here and start to perform their dailylife. Arcadia is a stage for this "reality show" and hopefully, one that promotes more possiblities for living.
