Vertical Urban Village

垂直城中村

HE Xiao

The tower addresses unique urban symbiosis by accommodating different life styles into a single highrise tower, creating a vertical urban village redefining existing perimeter  that isolates the urban village from its surrounding urban landscape. The dual expression of the facade adopting both elements of well-planned urban system and spontaneous self-growing, fragmented individuality of village life. The segmented space in between the living units becomes sky gardens and meeting points for neighbors that resemble the communal spaces in urban village's life style. Lower levels of the tower construct a framework, not only respect the street scale of the village, also bring the liveliness of the commercial and cultural activities into the tower.


針對特定的城市共生現象,塔樓的設計意圖將不同的生活方式結合在一起。通過創造一個立體“城中村”的手法來重新定義形同孤島的“城中村”與周圍城市環境的邊界。塔樓立面的雙重性來源於彼此對立的兩套系統:經過規劃設計的城市環境與自發生長的、片段式個性化的村落生活。採用類似於城中村樓棟間存在的公共空間,塔樓的居住單元之間產生的空間成為鄰里間的空中花園於交流場所。底層裙房形成的框架在尊重城中村現有街道尺度的基礎上,同時將村內生機勃勃的商業文化活動帶入到塔樓之中。
