How does the Chinese community in Guangdong
• How does the Chinese community in Guangdong
The spirit of collectivism was the main impetus of modern modernization in China. The current state of society with its disunity and individualization caused by large-scale, rapid urbanization, it seemed, weakened the old ideology.
Construction of a new dormitory on the O-office Architects for the industrialization of the Research Center staff construction company Vanke has become a unique opportunity for architects to approach the issue of new social forms of life. Playground in the south-eastern part of the territory of the center is bordered by areas that have developed from the former villages in the primitive urban structure.
The main design objective was the construction of a hostel for 155 employees, from protection to technicians working in the center. One of the key decisions was to use a system of reinforced concrete frames, as well as a number of innovative environmental technology building.
Finished building consists of five floors with three types of rooms: single, double and four-bed rooms. The southern facade of a three-story wing with name Habita provides a private balcony for each housing unit, and five large steel blocks for public premises are suspended at different levels of the northern facade overlooking the Research Center. general purpose facilities such as a gym and a library are formed in an L-shaped volume Mount, rising from the ground to the dining room at the top. Gore - is not just a metaphor, but a real climbing wall in conjunction with the landscaped surface directly on the eastern facade. Slight elevation of the concrete blocks grow out of the landscape and creates a makeshift scaffolding under the open sky. Stairs, elevators, corridors and bridges link the building vertical networks. Collectivism here becomes vivid and spontaneous Commonwealth initiated by social and architectural concepts.
