INSTANT LANDSCAPE TM 速成景观 TM

Cities like Beijing, Guangzhou and Shanghai will, at a certain point, overwhelm even the staunchest urbanite. The highways will morph in your mind from helpful escape routes into a tangled web of concrete slowly tightening around your neck. Finding refuge, as one would in London’s many great parks, or New York’s Central Park, proves morehttp://burb.tv/nodes.php difficult and less satisfying than hoped or anticipated. Instant LandscapeTM was conceived to tackle precisely this problem, providing a natural scenery in the most barren pockets of the city. A green backdrop in a concrete jungle.

像北京、广州和上海这样的城市终会让最顽强的都市客透不过气来。在你的脑海里,高速路将从帮你逃离城市的路径变成勃颈上越缠越紧的纠结的混凝土网。要说寻找避难所的话,在伦敦有很多很漂亮的公园,或者纽约的中央公园,但事实证明它们也比所希望所期待的更为麻烦,且更少满足感。速成景观TM旨在精准地解决这一问题,在城市最荒芜的地带,营造自然的景观,是混凝土丛林的绿色背景。

Originally designed as a pavilion for the uncannily harsh assembly of the Shanghai Expo, the structure responds in a very direct way to the theme of ‘better city, better life’. Each mountain in the Instant Landscape building represents a major city in China. The width of each hill illustrates the population size, the height is an indication of the speed of growth of a particularly city. The entire structure becomes an building-size diagram investigating the state of China’s urbanization. Seeing the array of the most prominent cities lined up it becomes clear that size alone isn’t everything. The big three of China can expect serious competition over the next few decades.

设计方案最初是上海世博会异常生硬的场馆集合中的一座,建筑希望直接回应世博会的主题——“城市让生活更美好”。速成景观的每一座山头代表的是中国的一个大城市。山体的宽度的是人口规模,山头的高度是城市的发展速度。整个结构则是建筑体量的图表,试图呈现中国城市化进程的现状。当你看过最有名头的城市一字排开时,你会发现城市的大小并不代表一切。中国最大的三座城市在今后的几十年内将面临严峻的竞争。

About two thirds of hills are simply reinforced soil. While five big hills are hollow, structurally ideal cone shapes that contain the exhibition spaces. At first a static building, the project has evolved to become a temporary structure that can be set up in different places in different cities offering a instant green refuge where most needed.

三分之二的山头都不过是夯实的泥土,而五个大型山头是中空的,锥形的理想结构提供了展示空间。最初不过是静止的建筑,项目已经演化成为灵活的结构,能为最有需求的不同城市的不同地点提供速成的绿色避难所。
