Thanks Lin Architects for authorizing the publication of the project on mooool, Text description provided by Lin Architects.
Lin Architects: The project is a pedestrian landscape bridge across the hinterland of Saddle Creek Park, which has a compound meaning and gives more vector connotations to the linear space, including the possibility of “surface” and “domain” being deconstructed again. After all, what is the definition of a bridge in people’s minds? It is a real bridge, perhaps an imaginary symbol, that can guarantee the conservation of energy as equivalent exchange.
When we reshape the possibility, we first need to analyze the background of the project and dig out the underlying causes of the current situation. Teams of designers ask a lot of “why’s” as they frame their designs.
“Why” strengthen the connection of various urban functions
Southwest University (SWU) is one of the first batch of “double First-class” universities directly under the Ministry of Education. Covering an area of more than 8,000 mu and covering an area of 1.65 million square meters, SWU has more than 50,000 students and more than 3,000 teachers. There are residential areas on both sides of Ma ‘an Xi Park, and there are also a lot of travel demands. Ma ‘an Xi Park is distributed in the northwest of Southwest University. This long and narrow treelawn provides a semi-enclosed and clean place for southwest University, but physically separates southwest University from the urban residential area in the northwest. The three-point personnel transfer mode is also applicable to schools, and it is necessary to comprehensively consider how to solve the thorny traffic problems and residential traffic problems. This also needs to comb again among the car system and the walking system.
“Why” derives the value of urban social welfare
The natural ecological conditions of Maanxi Wetland Park are superior, but the ecosystem located in the valley cannot timely produce a more benign interaction with the residential areas on both sides and Southwest University. Such dislocated interactions need to be explored. The huge vertical and longitudinal steep slope can not be digested by steps, only through the bridge to transport benefits. At the same time, it is necessary to give consideration to the function of landscape leisure, stimulate the vitality of wetland park again, and create a beautiful landscape of human settlements.
▽现场高差巨大，两侧联系方式缺乏，且难度大 There is a huge height difference between the two sides, and it lacks contacting methods.
▽利用台阶消化高差，开发及加强各地面空间的粘合性 Steps can be used to digest height differences and develop and strengthen the cohesiveness of various ground Spaces.
▽发掘高差的垂直隐秘区，发展多层次综合体式的立体交通空间 Exploring the vertical hidden area of height difference and develop multi-level comprehensive three-dimensional transportation space.
▽“树冠”结构模块推导过程 “Crown” structure module derivation process
“Why” trigger regional economic vitality, building the old area self-confidence business card
Located in beibei District, the project is rich in natural and cultural tourism resources, including Jinyun Mountain, Beihot Spring, Chongqing Natural History Museum, Southwest University, Lu Zuofu Memorial Hall, Lao She’s former residence, Zhang Zizhong Martyrs’ Cemetery, fudan University site and other important tourist attractions. The repositioning of the urban ecological system in the old area is a nonlinear integration. The landscape bridge is not only the cutting of the “new” and “old” areas, but also the combination of the old and the new, those systems could further explore the vitality and attraction of the city.
▽概念分析 Conceptual Analysis
Different from the traditional one-way transportation hub mode of linear bridge, the project is based on the demands of specific users, splitting the appeal points set up by the project, and then using the point-to-point mode to answer the problems of the project status through design methods. Less contact, then strengthen contact, the establishment of three-dimensional traffic network can be a good solution to the current situation. Lack of public space leads to the introduction of a rich variety of spatial forms and facilities. Lacking new impetus for urban development, injecting new blood into old areas.
In the process of fusion, the primary and secondary feelings between different urban blocks are expressed conditionally. The school should no longer be a linear cut siege, you and I in the ivory tower, need to go out to see; People outside the siege also need to cross the bridge, to enter the campus again, young and wild.
