Weimar Group:Based on the practice of real estate landscape, this paper presents a reflection on the public space in the process of urbanization in China at that time.Reflections on traditional public cultural buildings generally focus on three aspects: one is huge, which is a problem of perception intention; One is high and cold, which is a problem of operation mode; One is alienation, which is a question of the boundaries of power.
这次讨论的是权利的边界-公共性和商业性的矛盾 landscape is/not architecture

第一道边界：规划红线的边界｜First boundary：Plan the boundaries of the red line
Traditionally and contemporarily in landscape architecture, site has been approached as a mark of separation between the human and their environment (Eisenman, 2007)
In the process of landscape design is one of the earliest information we get land red line, the red line will be in our mind the first boundary within the red line and the red paint, for owners and project management within the scope of what we expect is the red line to the greatest extent to carry on the design of premium, which makes the designer often easy to overlook the red outside and internal links.
What do the residents of this area need, what do the tourists need, what do the economic environment need, what do the city need, what do The Times need?
Is it space, green space, square, road, landscape piece, material, IP?Scene? Is it the continuity of planning space? Is the integrity of the greenbelt system unbroken?So is it a combination of well-organized planning and perfect marketing that determines the value of a place?We believe that the guidance of design results to social relations may be a possibility to connect the inside and outside that are cut by the red line.
We don’t try to change things, but there are things we don’t want to be changed.
As an architect, you have to celebrate a thousand victories before a project is completed. And when you have fought all the battles, and you have won every single one of them, then the project can be realized. And it only takes a single defeat, and then the entire project dies.(Bjark Ingels)

An effective practice requires the effort of countless people:The relationship between space and sociality, the interaction between people, the distance between people, the degree of interaction, visibility, behavior mode.Order and cognitive map, efficiency and standardization of construction.Form and time, technology, technical materials, structure, etc., can bring some experience for the next practice.
Fortunately, the company we cooperated with was Longhu. Longhu has a strong ability to control the project landing effect, so it can be said that we did not have too much trouble in the design. After two weeks of practice, we determined the plan and entered the construction drawing. Combined with the on-site control of Longhu, the reduction degree of the design is also very high.Fast has the value of fast, fast also has the weakness of fast.It is a compromise to the project cycle, to the cost and to the construction technology to give up the insistence on many forms of design because the node is very busy.

Due to domestic landscape practices for computer aided architecture design technology is relatively unfamiliar, this makes the process for materials and construction methods of driving cost needs certain lobby, and in short period project, the most insurance control method is to find a simple way to deal with, everyone is familiar with this part so that we will cancel the non-linear design, This part of “ease” is our biggest regret in this project, China should have its own more powerful design, in different scales, and we chose ease, especially regret.
第二道边界：明确的专业边界｜Second boundary：Clear professional boundaries
We have been segmenting the environment, such as, in front vs behind the wall or the outside vs inside of the high-rise buildings. Consequently, we have been losing our sense of perception of the overall environment through the landscape and scenery including smells and sounds. We have been evolving to live comfortably within this increasingly segmented environment. “For me, it seems very dangerous because we have been losing our adaptability”. (Shinohara Osamu)
▼ 水光树影 Water light and tree shadow
The increasingly clear radius of professional service makes the interior work of the architectural landscape relatively independent. As a result, the design increasingly tends to have a clear perceived boundary between indoor and outdoor space.
As a “nonprofessional landscape architect”, the practice of our firm tend to design extends to the red line in each field, may be the properties of the nosy, we always work on service projects outside the contract, but such overtime also pretty happy, actually very fortunately this time the result of the project landscape architecture interior cooperation seems to be a qualified.
第三道边界：社会关系与空间价值边界｜Third boundary：Social relations and spatial value boundary
Gentrification is an inevitable problem in the process of urban development. The “middle class aesthetic” and “web celebrity aesthetic” brought by gentrification to urban space reflect the expansion of capital and power. As an embodiment of physical space and landscape, increasingly homogenized urban space becomes a commodity, and public space becomes a place for collective consumption, generating a sense of place in the context of consumerism.
(Source: Sharon Zukin, Landscapes of Power)
Social relations actually involve the interaction of all the material behaviors and spiritual activities of people. Architecture is the product of social relations and an instrumental means of social relations.
“Postmodernism” has become an important weapon for capital consciousness to entrap consumer society, and tonality and web celebrity aesthetic evaluation standard have shaped a new consumption ideology — ritual sense. It is an absolute space field branded with a specific power attribute. God’s still belongs to God, Caesar’s still belongs to Caesar. The so-called publicity is not public, but a clear and visible boundary of rights.
All of Week8’s practices are based on such a foundation: looking for a pure state of null in various ideologies, such as gentrification, homogenization, borderline, web celebrity aesthetics, etc. In the practice in the field of architectural design and landscape design, we explore contemporary decoration vs. doctrine from the perspective of “non-professionals”. Not just to create designs that are easy to remember, but to create Spaces that are not easy to forget. This practice(In Hawaiian slang Keanu is for “a breeze through a valley.”), which we call Keanu, is not to be said to be a breeze, but it is our vision to evoke the wind of a new age.
