Tower Park

摩天樓公園: 一種新的高層原型

ZHU Xiao Feng  / Scenic architecture office

Towers have formed a high-density settlement in central Hong Kong. When people living or working in the towers need access to external nature or society, they must first reach the ground to travel to other destinations, such as a restaurant or a park. The "Tower Park" attempts to make a critical proposal on this status through architectural ontology: we invert the figure-ground relationship of a typical tower floor plan. The ring corridor is extracted as a structure supporting the tower and plant growth, which forms a vertical park interlinked by promenades. The spaces outside and inside the corridor are then left for free use. Platforms cantilevered by truss from the corridor structure became sky-property lands for independent buildings, e.g. residential, office, restaurant, shop or cultural facilities in the tower park. People in the surrounding towers can come through sky bridges to share nature and exchange spaces. As a new sky-community model integrated with nature, Tower Park will become a new vitality hub in the city.

 

塔樓在香港中環已經形成一種高密度的聚落,當居住或工作在塔樓裡的人需要接觸外部的自然和社會時,必須先抵達地面,才能前往其它目的地,比如一家餐館或者一個公園。“摩天樓公園”嘗試用建築本體的手段對這一現狀提出批判性的提案:我們將典型塔樓標準層的圖底關係反轉,提取環廊做為支撐結構,在附著綠化後形成一個由散步道串聯起來的垂直公園。廊外的使用空間和廊內的核心筒則被放空,通過桁架懸挑得到可以租售的產權平臺,在上面可以自由興建獨棟的小型建築,成為這座垂直公園裡的住宅、辦公、餐館、商店或文化設施,周圍塔樓裡的人,可以通過空中連橋抵達這裡,共用自然和交流場所。作為一種與自然相融合的新型空中社區,摩天樓公園必將成為城市中新的活力場。
