天津是我国著名的海港城市,因此我们提取了天津港与轮船的元素,将其融入此次的建筑设计当中。我们的方案名称为“舸”,将整体大楼塑以船的形态,利用船体的流线性,打造流动性空间,使共享与交流成为主题。“舸”还有百舸争流,更进一步之意,寓意着联盟中的企业百花齐放,而又协力向前;局部拆分来看,似船归港,意为吸引更多设计机构和设计师的加入,不断壮大北方设计联盟,融合共赢。此外,环保和降低建筑能耗也是我们所追求的目标。 Tianjin is a famous seaport city in China.Therefore, we extracted the elements of Tianjin Port and steamship and incorporated it into this architectural design. Our plan is called "Barge", which will shape the whole building as a ship.Make use of the flow linearity of the hull to create the flow space. Make sharing and communication the theme.The "Barge" implied is that hundred boats competing to win, further.It means that enterprises in the alliance will flourish and work together to move forward. And if it is partially split up and looks like a ship entering seaport.It means attracting more design institutions and designers, expanding the “Northern Design Union”, and integrating win-win situation.In addition, environmental protection and reducing building energy consumption are also our goals.

Whims of the Black Cubes
YB92911-S59118

Being in the ever-stopping information era, we all well be equipped with different skills easily and quickly through digital media learning, and the goal on achieving from start to finish on a project or a skill is more accessible, inexpensive and timesaving. The behavior on day-to-day working environment base is respectively fixed, localized and uneasy to make quick adjustment with different needs the next minute. In order to pair with the quick information updates, be able to share it and get feedbacks responsively with other across-domain industrial talents or peers, it has to be in a fully function open space with see-through and air-permeated techniques to the space. Drawn inspiration from the Chinese Luban Game blocks, the self-supporting device has independent and stably functional purposes, and it is the ingenuity of wisdom. When there are many talented people working in one building, two crucial attentions made: one, the concept flows fluidly during progress; two, a comfortable indoor environment system which effectively combined with the outdoor environment. Therefore the indoor space is highly permeable with seven voids when the cut-outs was made during the building concept stage. The lobby is being the largest of the seven voids that provides a sense of openness and welcoming space with meetup and resting area by the side of the main south entrance and next to the sunken VR-media Hall while penetrating daylight and air in good weather days; and guests can clearly tell what is the adjacent side of the street. Through out the interior space, on the2nd, 3rd, and 4th levels where the green cube is turn-away and facing the city view on one side; the diagonal profile of the green cube is to the level below and above making the whole building facing toward to eight different directions at different levels. The diagonal profile penetrates into the interior space, making up the interior space of the natural quality which reflects the outside, and it is also naturally to open these 3 levels to the outdoor roof garden decks, which makes them opportunistically visited and do outdoor socials. Office spaces are highly flexible with adjustable glass panels and aluminum chain curtain dividers, which suitable for future update with no fixed partitions. There are interesting semi-open and closed small spaces with glass panels for group discussion and small private meetups. The building with all-level accessible, communal self-help kitchen, coffee & tea bar, fine dinning, gymnasium, yoga room, open lecture spaces, flexible exhibition hall, large outdoor spaces and plenty of quick sketch discussion areas with glass paneling, and it is fully open to members and to visitors with IDs. The Black is magical and having a boldness to cut-off the distraction of the mundane façades that are nearby. The green is to brighten the sense of liveliness and a reminder of the eccentrics fire-rated orange-red glass elevators and staircase. It is about wisdom, boldness, ingenuity, individuality, solidarity, and complementarity.

设计说明 本设计试图从意向和组织方式对北方设计联盟,这一新型合作体系的办公形式做出回应。设计的意向取自浪花:簇拥着,融合着,扩大着向前。因此构成建筑的独特设计导向:乘风破浪。建筑由簇拥着的小体量组成且在中间平层联合。立面设计如同风吹过海浪的纹路,也如迎风而起的船帆,共同构筑了属于北方设计联盟的独特的意向。 Based on Northern Design Union’s cooperative system, this design attempts to response to the new office type by architectural design image and space organization evolution.The design image comes from the waves: clustering, blending, and expanding out. Therefore, it constitutes the unique design image of the building: Shape of the wind. The building consists of small bodies that are clustered and merged in the middle. The facade design is from the wind blowing through the waves, as well as the sails rises in the wind, constructing a unique image of the Northern Design Union together. 空间组织上,建筑体块有两层幕墙界面,赋予空间多层次性,产生了朦胧的过度空间。这样的微妙层次关系与共享、辐射和交流的设计方向,以一种东方审美的维度高度契合在一起。在空间中一切都没有限定,而人作为使用者成为灵活空间中的控制引擎,由活动组织起空间形制。从室内到室外的,从私人空间到公共空间之间,都有多层次渐变过渡,让建筑在人和人,人和自然之间创造出了一种微妙轻质的平衡联动关系。 In the spatial organization, the building block has two layers of curtain wall interface, creating multi-layered space. Such subtle multi-layer relationship highly aligns with the design intention of sharing, expanding, and communication, per the Chinese aesthetic dimension. Everything is not settled in the space, and human activities become the control engine to arrange the space. From indoor to outdoor, from private space to public space, there are many levels of gradual transition, so that the building creates a delicate and dynamic balance between people and people, between people and nature. 同时,将一个大的体分散为有连接的小体量多孔结构,创造了很好的通风和光照条件,提供了绿色的庭院和适宜的工作环境。建筑三个部分提供了不同的功能类型组织方式,都具有灵活可变性和可整合性,以应对不同需求。室内的所有构件都是灵活可变的。天花是一个网格悬挂系统,可承载隔墙,书架等竖向用来构筑空间的构件,以及安装不同的灯具,家具也是由两种模数的构件组合而成。提供了灵活的室内整合体系。这样灵活的室内能很好地应对信息化和未来导向的室内需求,完成资源共享。 At the same time, a large mass breaks into a connected small-volume porous structure, which creates a good ventilation and lighting conditions, provides green courtyards and a suitable working environment.

N
YB92911-S31144

N是北方设计联盟的代言,也是纳的首字母,但是我们赋予它的解释就是自然(Nature),我们要营造(自然)的办公环境。也可以说是N种交流与互动的可能性,和艺术,自然,人,建筑,阳光,甚至是空气......以此来激发设计的创造力。 我们的手法很简单,就像N字母一样简单,将长方矩形中间横向分解。就像N字母一样将两侧首尾对角相连,如此一来中间形成充满一个活力的对角空间,阳光透过退台式的屋顶森林洒向同样退台式通高的大厅,大厅我们希望它更大一点。以此来更好的进行横向与竖向的沟通,与此同时,我们将展厅的功能与大厅并在一起,我们希望的是进行艺术与自然的交流,以及交流的多种可能性......因此我们将我们此次的设计概念简称为“N”.

Headquarters N 办公总部N
YB92911-S59168

The Headquarters N create terraces connect to west green area. The expanded terrace not only creates view and transparency between streets and landscape, while also forms accessible garden for work space. It sets a new standard for the contemporary workplace, where nature becomes an integrated part of the work environment while N features continuously adaptable to changing needs of North Design Union organizations. Inside, every terrace interacts with the atrium, offering a more informal setting for meeting, events and recreational activities. Spiral stairs in these spaces connect multiple levels in the building, encouraging physical activity and interaction amongst colleagues. 总部N创建自然露台与西边绿地呼应。 延伸的露台在街区和景观之中创造了视野和通透性,同时形成开放式花园的工作空间。办公总部N为当代工作场所设定了新标准,其中自然成为工作环境中一个非常重要的组成部分,同时也将满足与适应北方设计联盟未来不断需求变化。 在内部,每个露台都与中庭发生互动,为办公,会议,活动和创意提供更加休闲的环境。这些空间中的螺旋楼梯连接各个楼层,鼓励同事之间更多的进行身体活动和交流。

融·解
YB92911-S1602

一、设计说明: 北方设计联盟总部以N为联盟LOGO,寓意海纳百川,包罗万象。“纳”不仅代表接纳,也代表着汇聚与融合,其实设计就是思想的汇聚和碰撞,所有的设计都不能脱离生活,它源于生活,同样又要回归到生活。此次北方设计联盟总部大楼的设计就是想通过建筑的语言去表达一个成熟的设计演变的过程。 在知识的海洋里,在信息的浪潮中。我们大多数都在接受碎片化的信息,如何将这些信息重新组合与再生,从信息的收集---思考---成型,这是缓慢的思考过程。 通过建筑语言讲述这个过程首先需要体现建筑的公共性,开放性,包容性。建筑的形体构成是以分散的盒子逐渐融合成一个清晰地形体,整体构成是面向城市公共绿地和景观河方向分散,自然形成开放的休闲平台和观景平台。观景台阶将建筑从场地一直延续到屋顶和城市进行连接,建筑以开放的姿态出现在城市中,以此来和生活建立起一个交流的纽带。 分散在台阶上的box寓意面向城市和生活汲取灵感和学习的“信息晶体”。功能上它是一个开放的休闲体验区和交流区,“信息晶体”融合在建筑内部时会形成具有阅读学习和多媒体会议的半私密空间。最后演变聚合成一个完整的办公空间,建筑一到三层是开敞的办公空间,四到六层是精品办公区以小空间为主。 二、设计理念: “信息晶体”从分散到聚集表达着设计形成的过程,表达灵感的生成不仅仅是对某一方面的和领域的局限理解和认知,而是需要感知生活的方方面面,不断地追寻新的知识源泉,才能让设计保持活力,才能服务和推动当下的时代。 而从另一个角度也表达着建筑的分解,如何让建筑更加低碳、绿色、节能、减少对环境的负面影响,通过越来越先进的技术来改善我们生活的质量,改善我们的家园,这是我们建筑师必须要做的。让建筑与场地共生,与社会共享,与时代共进。

消失的边界
YB92911-S59183

人们在城市的不同角落里生活,又在同一个办公场地相遇、协作;在未来,当地点不再成为限制工作自由度的因素,办公建筑又将如何改变? 在陈塘自创区的场地里,我们希望创造一个消融在城市生活状态下的未来工作场所。它可以打破城市尺度与建筑尺度的界限,又具有着独特的外部形象 。街道广场空间延伸到建筑内部,又衍变成为更加包容、互联的共享平台。在这个空间里,工作可以成为一种自然的生活方式;不同规模的企业团队之间的边界在消失,工作空间与商业空间的边界在消失,办公空间也成为了城市空间的一部分。 People live in different parts of the city, while assembly and cooperate in the same working space. In the future, posion will no longer be an element which limited work’s freedom. How office buildings are going to react?In the site of the Chentang district, we hope to create a future workplace that will be embeded in urban lifestyle. It can break the boundaries between city scale and building scale with unique shape. The street and plaza space permeate though the building. It was shaped and redefined as a inclusive and interconnected shared space. In this space, work could be a natural lifestyle. The boundaries between different teams are disappearing, the boundaries between work space and commercial space are disappearing, and office space has become part of urban space.

在自然创造的万事万物当中,自然都记录了它的创造过程, 岩石记录着岩石的创造过程,人也记录着然的创造过程。有些人只要了解一片草叶,就能重建宇宙的法则,有些人却必须经过许多学习才能发现道,而道即宇宙。很多有趣的事物现象让我觉得规则事实是正在接受考验,而发现一条新的规则就是发现一条新的表达途径。这个项目让我想到港口、码头、工人,他们是让人敬佩的工作者,我渴望研究学习他们在其它不同的地点、时刻,创造新的规则并与环境相适应。同时新的环境会去证明它有效或需要改变。 例如,盒子的叠加区域会形成一个新的社交休闲空间就是对于新环境所作出的基本改变:穿孔板外立面对于长时间工作的人们会增加空间的采光效果,包括更强大的开放性。 实际港口工人会通过各种机械设备来转运需要的货物,这是 他们的工作方式,而新的环境则通过链接不同高度盒子的楼梯来实现工作中的交流互动,并且我相信这会是新的乐趣。 最令人惊奇的是强大的屋顶休闲空间,它被用来更多的是消除高低空间带来的闭塞,比如你站在很高的地方看向外面,除了不可触及的美景。 自然里所有的物质,山陵、溪流、空气以及我们自己都是发出的光,光让我们看见实体物质,而我更倾向于通过少量水面来反射它,很奇妙。 Among all things created by nature, nature records its creation process.The rock records the creation process of the rock, and man also records the creation process of ran. Some people can reconstruct the laws of the universe simply by understanding a blade of grass,Some people have to go through a lot of learning to discover tao, and tao is the universe.There are a lot of interesting things that make me think that the rule of fact is being tested,And to discover a new rule is to discover a new way of expression. This project reminds me of ports, docks and workers. They are admirable workers, and I am eager to study and learn from them in other places and moments, to create new rules and adapt to the environment. And the new environment will have to prove that it works or needs to change.For example,The superimposed areas of the boxes create a new social and leisure space which is a fundamental change to the new environment;Perforated panel facades increase spatial lighting for people who work long hours,Including greater openness. The actual port workers will transfer the needed goods through various machinery and equipment.This is how they work, and the new environment though some staircase that links boxes of different heights to communicate and interact at work, and I believe this will be a new joy.The most amazing thing is the powerful roof leisure space, which is used to eliminate the block caused by the high and low space.So if you're standing in a very tall building and you're looking out,Except for the untouchable beauty. All the matter of nature, the hills, the streams, the air, and ourselves, is light.Light allows us to see solid objects, and I prefer to reflect it through a small amount of water, That is fantastic.

The Crystal means architectural innovation in Cities Office units for planning in gird clearly demonstrates the high-speed development of China in the 21st Century. However, the grid would more fit the theme of industrialization. As for Tianjin, the future City of Design, a breakthrough is definitely needed here. Based on the urban planning strategy of Tianjin Hexi District, the international design center of North Design Union should offer a sense of flexibility, a feeling of creation, an attitude of motivation. However, that could be demonstrated by the angle relationships between this building and the city, like the shape of a crystal. The N Crystal office, which offers a pleasant working atmosphere, is designed dealing with spatial complexity. The atrium let the space flow freely where people at different level could see each other. The internal green space is important. The working people could have a relaxing time in the atrium garden. The building atmosphere would release the working pressure and support people with a sense of passion. In the design, each function is connected in series by a single inner corridor, so the streamline is simple and brief. The function layout is clear in the dynamic and static zones, providing a guarantee for the designers in the industrial park to work and relax. The large open plan offers to work with more opportunities for interactive events and more spatial flexibility for the future.

创新就是把各种事物整合在一起——乔布斯。本次设计就是整合周边的环境,将建筑功能,形体空间,流线交通融汇一体,形成一个具有可变性,多样性,开放性的现代办公综合体。 融合自然,在基地西侧敞开入口广场,把西侧大片的绿化视野引入建筑当中。南侧入口也形成丰富的入口绿化形态。同时在建筑的不同层植入大量的绿化空间和屋顶花园。形成一个多元化立体式的绿化办公空间。人们在这里不单纯是创造,参观,工作,同时也在享受自然,漫步在一个像立体森林的内部丰富公共空间,将看似单一的体块功能生成多样性的空间。 城市中人们总是去通过与自然的互动、联系,营造融入,从而将生活方式延伸。空中阁楼般的绿化环境看似是人与传统的对立,但它以渗透的形态在这里共存。 创新不是凭空创造,而是在尊重气候、风土,生活方式的基础上连接未来。天津地热丰富,雨水较少,将生态概念植入建筑,唤醒人们对生态的认识,在此,可以将科教,研究,办公等多样生活方式相融合。 这是一个人工的自然场所,将新的工作方式和生态环境植入进来。创造一个高度融合的高效办公生活场所,以适应当下快捷变化的空间需求。 Innovation is about putting things together and breaking them -- Jobs. This design is to integrate the surrounding environment, architectural functions, physical space, and streamline traffic to form a modern office complex with variability, diversity, and openness. Integrate nature, open the entrance square on the West side of the base, and introduce the large green vision on the West side into the building. The South entrance also forms a rich entrance green form. At the same time, a large number of green spaces and roof gardens are planted on different floors of the building. Form a diversified three-dimensional green office space. People here are not simply creating, visiting, working, but also enjoying nature, walking in a rich public space like a three-dimensional forest, creating a space of diversity that looks like a single body block work. People in the city always extend their way of life by interacting with nature and creating connections for integrating species. The attic-like green environment in the sky looks like a confrontation between people and tradition, but it co-exists here in the form of infiltration. Innovation is not a creation out of thin air, but respect for the climate, the soil and the way of life on the basis of connecting the future. Tianjin is rich in geothermal heat and less rainwater. It imbeds ecological concepts into buildings and awakens people's understanding of ecology. Here, various lifestyles such as science, education, research, and office can be integrated. This is a man-made natural place to embed new ways of working and ecological environments. Create a highly integrated and efficient place to live in order to meet the rapidly changing needs of the space.

BETWEEN TIMES
YBN-A-G95056

Where today, we have laptops, tablets and mobiles that enable us to work effectively from anywhere with a WI-Fi connection, older workplaces were designed to facilitate rows of manual white collar workers and typists, packed in tightly in an effort to maximize efficiency. Office design has become a much more cultured process with an increasing focus on creating workplaces that center around the individual, and that promote not only productivity and efficiency but also creativity and well being. As the history of office design continues to unfold, today it has reached a point where the modern workplace takes inspiration from the home, through the use of warm colors, intimate lighting and soft seating. It also continues to focus on the comfort and well being of staff as companies have become aware that the office is an important tool that can be used to attract and retain the very best talent in a competitive marketplace. In this 21st Century, office space designs have evolved and have become one with daily human activities. People in this century believe that the culture of office have bridged the gap between the idea that work is fun, a place with a sense of community, that is provided with a recreational facilities and social spaces, office trends have been shifted and renamed as “campus”, symbolically and practically, to promote interaction and collaboration. This proposal aims as well as a physical work space, the “campus” is a symbolic, cultural and social place. The new “campus” is photogenic, promoting the corporation and its values in the media and to potential employees.

INCREMENTAL CONNECTION
YBN-A-G95100

The project is located in Chentang Innovation Demonstration Area (CIDA). CIDA actively explores the new path of innovation-driven development, actively gathers enterprise entities and institutions in the field of design, intelligent manufacturing, science and technology financing, environmental protection and cultural industry represented by the establishment of the North Research Institute of NJUST and North Design Union. The design aims to act as a significant landscape node along the landscape belt park. At that time, North Design Union not only provide regular office functions, but also an important platform for a trinity- participation design environment with public, academic and enterprises participation. Design establishes an incremental connection from the public to the private. The space form, such as sunken square, reception hall, inner street, detachable booth, loop exhibition, atrium, sculpture supporting space, open office and independent center office, is set along the CONNECTION, which is a INCREMENTAL method to deal with a series of linear issues from the city to the site, from the site to citizen space, from citizen space to office, and finally in the office environment effectively and efficiently merging three aspect of research institutes, academic and enterprises.

Subconscious Absorption of New Ideas
YB92911-S59413

This project is facilitating interaction between researchers from different departments, and also creating a free movement of new ideas, findings, information, and data through the research space. In this regard, we removed solid vertical and horizontal borders through and between stories, and also established vertical and horizontal continuity for research spaces. We developed integrating mechanisms of work areas, spatial motion, and leisure activities to get rid of isolated research space, and promote interrelationships between researchers from different departments. The research zone is an exposed cube, that is tilted to correspond with interior space. The cube has a unified space composed of several floors and ramps that are floated by red Chinese columns. The rams between department are supposed to create a continuous movement system, and also natural interactions between workspace and people who are walking. The research cube is encompassed by other functions such as restaurant, gymnasium, offices, library, roof garden, and auditorium. The basement, first, and second floor is multi-propose public access zone to spark interrelationships between professional researchers and visitors. These three public floors are interconnected by two large multi-functional stairs built for both transportation and for sharing new ideas. The program consists of an exhibition area, shared space, a restaurant and coffee shop, public training center, journal and leisure area, communication area, directory, auditorium, and an AV room. The upper level is fragmented into two large zones: a library that offers services to researchers, and a large roof garden with a panoramic view. Two vertical access cores with a corridor in between provide access and services to different levels and zones. They are also a quick way to get from one research level to another without passing through ramps. The transparent facade for research zone represents the main goal of the building, and the process of creating innovative ideas as well. The first floor also takes advantages of transparent facade to have maximum accessibility and be welcoming to the public. The white semi-transparent box is made of vertical non-aligned bars with different sized cross sections to create different compositions of depth, shadow, and light during the day. A translucent glass on the rear side allows natural light to pass through the facade while solar radiation is blocked. The distance between vertical bars is adjustable based on the corresponding areas. They can be moved and rearranged to set desirable lighting, views, and interaction between inside and outside.

The Bridge
YBN-A-G95221

The future of the workplace is about ‘authenticity’. With augmented reality we have the potential for remote working and even professional home working. Technology generally is decentralising people. For many Starbucks is already the workplace of the future. Is this the death of the large scale office as we know it. The future of work will be shaped by the sharing economy, gig economy, open-source movement, and flexi-time working. We will witness an accelerated shift to a distributed model, with smaller, more specialised, virtual, on-demand entities thriving. Collaboration will be key, as will cultivating a network. One must be able to join immediate and flexible working structures. Skills will become obsolete faster than organisations can train them. We can expect longer working lives, and we will be mindful of health and wellbeing. So the workplace of the future is not about mechanised production or efficient working time - we have this with a wifi connection. Instead office design should become about what 'surrounds' the activity of work. For us this means a multi-stage life of continuous learning, networking, inspiration, and ad-hoc collaboration. There are problems with open-plan. There are problems with cellular space. Ideas of flexible and adaptable office space have been shown to fail in the past - it is human nature to be formed by our environment, rather than adapt to it. When employees are granted power to choose their working space, productivity can increase by 25%. This is the central principal of our 'Office' space design. We have deliberately not organised people, people will organise themselves. Instead we recognise a need for various spatial impressions - office space that is open plan and cellular, quiet and busy, smart and cluttered. Our 'Office' is unprogrammed but specific and varied. We disrupt open space with stair cores and slanted columns. Our project creates a central lake, and a series of bridges span this. We are inspired by the ambitious bridges of Tianjin. Our 'Bridges' begin with a large external ramp, inviting a journey up, through, and around the offices, with exhibition occurring along this route. The bridges connect a series of half levels that discreetly open up visual connection between office workers. Informal meetings, reading, exhibition, and conversation happen in-between, on the 'Bridges'. Our third type of space is the 'Basement'. A concrete space for a 'collective'. Something like a serviced office and a clubhouse, somewhere with the 'kit' needed by designers - open source labs with 3d printers, scanners, and workshops. Somewhere for the design community of Tianjin to access equipment (at cost), to attend events, to engage with office staff, and for new collaborations to form. 'Authentic work' is a research based idea that we should be ourselves at work. That instead of a uniformed persona we should be more deeply present. We have designed a building for this future. To do this we have extended a rural, forested, periphery site condition to subsume this corner plot. We reference Chinese traditional craft, timber structures, and principals and forms of Chinese ancient architecture. We seek imperfection, the humane, and the personal. In essence our design is about an acceptance of the need for a variety of office volume and type. We allow designers and small groups to form freely and interchangeably. We separate space in section using half levels. We distribute public event space and exhibition along a route of 'Bridges', connecting 'Offices' with informal meeting and breakout space. The 'Basement' brings a third group, and a further work environment. Not unlike a university building, the value is the campus as incubator. We do not pursue efficiency. Rather than eliminate the corridor, we reprogram it. We exhibit ongoing education, we expose different people and cultures. Our office is somewhere to develop a diverse network of peers, proactively engaging their feedback. This is collaborative, linked, open, ubiquitous, disruptive space. Office geography matters, but only in the sense of communication and cross fertilisation (not in the sense of hierarchy). In the end we create the design community of the future.

DESIGN GREENHOUSE
YB92911-S59437

The proposal is conceived as a greenhouse where ideas will born and grow as a result of creativity fostered by social interaction among designers. The greenhouse generates a unique space for a collaborative way of work for designers, a landmark for the district and a great opportunity to create a strong bonding between designers, visitors and community. The North Design Union Headquarters has two main attractors for the two target users of the facilities: For the design community, it offers vanguard workspaces in terms of technology, spatial quality and comfort. For the visitors and the local community it offers vibrant and dynamic public spaces, vitalized by the offer of many activities related with design: Design market, design exhibitions and the possibility to see what is going on inside the design headquarters, as an attraction itself. The conceptual Idea of the proposal placement on the site is based on the necessity to create a bonding space that allows designers to share their work with the community in a symbiotic manner. The proposal has a basement which hosts parking and the technical spaces necessary for the operation of the building, parking spaces are limited because alternative manners of transport are strongly encouraged and hopefully with the pass of time, parking spaces will become less and less necessary. The ground floor is conceived as a large open space surrounded by boxes with programme flexibility, they can be used as AV rooms, Lecture Halls or just as spots for sitting during an exhibition. The shape of the boxes allows them to host retail spaces beneath, the retail spaces are located around exterior retail squares generating small design markets within the squares. There is three floors above where the workspaces are located, the proposal seeks enjoyable circulation spaces where interaction can happen all the time, the main asset of the design is its flexibility. The workspaces consists of boxes that can be used in many ways, some of them are mobile so the workspaces have the possibility to be enlarge when needed. The boxes are arranged around the shared workspaces, other activities as dinning, gathering or resting are melted with the wide circulation spaces proposed. Each floor has a service box which hosts WCs The Basement of the building is a conventional Concrete Framing based on a 5x5m grid, from the ground floor to the top (at 30m height), the structure consist of a steel framing based on the same grid, The workspace’s boxes are prefabricated units made of concrete, steel and glass. Those which are mobile must be mounted on rails so they can slide to change its position. The main façade is a greenhouse like translucent cover that allows plenty pass of light and the possibility to see how ideas grow as plants inside the design greenhouse.

New Project
YB92911-S59439

The Area Informations Tianjin is a coastal metropolis in northern China and one of the nine national central cities of the People's Republic of China (PRC). Tianjin borders Hebei Province and Beijing Municipality, bounded to the east by the Bohai Gulf portion of the Yellow Sea. Part of the Bohai Economic Rim, it is the largest coastal city in northern China. In terms of urban population, Tianjin is the fourth largest in China, after Shanghai, Beijing, and Guangzhou. In terms of administrative area population, Tianjin ranks fifth in Mainland China. Tianjin features a four-season, monsoon-influenced climate, typical of East Asia, with cold, windy, very dry winters reflecting the influence of the vast Siberian anticyclone, and hot, humid summers, due to the monsoon. Spring in the city is dry and windy, occasionally seeing sandstorms blowing in from the Gobi Desert, capable of lasting for several days. The monthly 24-hour average temperature ranges from −3.4 °C in January to 26.8 °C in July, with an annual mean of 12.90 °C. With monthly percent possible sunshine ranging from 48% in July to 61% in October, the city receives 2,522 hours of bright sunshine annually. Having a low annual total precipitation of 511 millimetres (20.1 in), and nearly three-fifths of it occurring in July and August alone, the city lies within the semi-arid zone, with parts of the municipality being humid continental. Extreme temperatures have ranged from −22.9 °C to 40.5 °C. Architectural Description The project located on Hexi District where is in the south-western corner of urban Tianjin, People's Republic of China. It is bordered by Heping District in the north-west, Hedong District to the north-east and Nankai District to the west. In this scheme main aim is creating places which affect people's soul positively. So we inspired from "the world".

New Project

YB92911-S59439

The Area Informations Tianjin is a coastal metropolis in northern China and one of the nine national central cities of the People's Republic of China (PRC). Tianjin borders Hebei Province and Beijing Municipality, bounded to the east by the Bohai Gulf portion of the Yellow Sea. Part of the Bohai Economic Rim, it is the largest coastal city in northern China. In terms of urban population, Tianjin is the fourth largest in China, after Shanghai, Beijing, and Guangzhou. In terms of administrative area population, Tianjin ranks fifth in Mainland China. Tianjin features a four-season, monsoon-influenced climate, typical of East Asia, with cold, windy, very dry winters reflecting the influence of the vast Siberian anticyclone, and hot, humid summers, due to the monsoon. Spring in the city is dry and windy, occasionally seeing sandstorms blowing in from the Gobi Desert, capable of lasting for several days. The monthly 24-hour average temperature ranges from −3.4 °C in January to 26.8 °C in July, with an annual mean of 12.90 °C. With monthly percent possible sunshine ranging from 48% in July to 61% in October, the city receives 2,522 hours of bright sunshine annually. Having a low annual total precipitation of 511 millimetres (20.1 in), and nearly three-fifths of it occurring in July and August alone, the city lies within the semi-arid zone, with parts of the municipality being humid continental. Extreme temperatures have ranged from −22.9 °C to 40.5 °C. Architectural Description The project located on Hexi District where is in the south-western corner of urban Tianjin, People's Republic of China. It is bordered by Heping District in the north-west, Hedong District to the north-east and Nankai District to the west. In this scheme main aim is creating places which affect people's soul positively. So we inspired from "the world". Beacuse of the world is unique place to ensure ability of creativity, symbiosis, sharing, innovation and progress for humanity. In this context, we thought 2 spaces nested such as the first one is working like atmosphere in terms of; protection, regulation, balancing and climating the earth.

Vertical Village
YBN-A-G95316

This program hopes to create the public space in city, deconstruct and evolve the Prototype of VILLAGE in DOWNTOWN, form a high-density creation space.We will divide the future creative industry into the following types according to the office model and hardware dependence: 1. Small workshop type 2. Multimedia type 3. Social Media Types 4. Headquarters office What they have in common is that, they all need outdoor leisure space and public space. Within limited space, an effective way is to achieve constant switching of boundaries - indoors and outdoors, private and public. By interspersing public service spaces and outdoor leisure spaces between office spaces, it is possible to create a rustic, organic, rather than urban, rigid and monotonous environment for them.

ONE
YBN-A-G95343

Everything starts from ONE. 1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+... =? 1+1-1+1-1+1+1-1+1+1+1-1+1-1+1+1+... =? (1+1+1)x(1+1)+(1+1)x(1+1+1+1+1+1) ... =? ...... ONE = UNLIMITED POSSIBILITIES. Instead of traditional enclosed office headquarters, people see more and more necessity of flexible spaces. Therefore, we decided to starting from ONE 4m x 4m x12m (WxHxL) block.By adding, merging, rotating, splitting the blocks., the idea is to create a MULTI- FUNCTIONAL headquarter that brings in unlimited possibilities to designers . FUTURE = UNLIMITED POSSIBILITIES.

联盟之翼
YBN-A-G95698

The design of this architectural scheme aims to create a new complex office space with distinct style and infinite possibilities. The building is in the form of glass facades and metal roofs with skylight. The division of glass plate echoes and strengthens the sense of direction, strength and speed of the building shape. By choosing glass with different transparency to generate random and vibrant patterns, to bring rhythm and motion to the simple glass facades. Whether in the daytime or at night, it creates a unique atmosphere and architecture that belongs exclusively to the North Design Union. On the basis of meet the function requirements, different characteristics and spatial experiences are given to each space, creating a series of places that can be used interactively and change spatial attributes according to different needs. The atrium ladder space can be used in different situations, such as reports, exhibitions, speeches, leisure and so on. Open office area adopts modular unit combination form of work station, can adjust the number and combination form at any time with the adjustment of people or team. Conference rooms are integrated into various office spaces to improve efficiency. The fitness center in the top inclined roof area makes full use of the top view, and at the same time, it is separated from the office area to avoid mutual interference. Open and simple dining space can also be arranged as a multi-functional hall according to the needs. The high library on the south side maximizes the use of natural light. As well as the double-deck high sky garden, outdoor terrace, and the leisure negotiation space scattered in the public areas at all levels, the whole office headquarters has a more humane, more comfortable and rich space experience and use function. Site landscape, architectural form and interior design all adopt one language expression application to create a "North Design Union System" to create a rich atmosphere and provide users with a powerful functional, flexible, friendly and fun office environment! 该建筑方案设计,旨在创造一个具有鲜明风格的充满无限可能性的新型复合形态办公空间。 建筑采用全玻璃幕墙和开有天窗的金属屋顶的形式。玻璃板块划分呼应并强化了建筑造型的方向感,力量感,速度感。选择不同透明度的玻璃,生成随机而富有生机的图案,给简单的玻璃立面带来韵律与动感。无论白天还是夜晚,营造出一个专属于北方设计联盟特有的气质和建筑。 在满足功能需求的基础上,赋予了各个空间不同的特性和空间体验,创造出一系列可交互使用,随不同需求变换空间属性的场所。 中庭阶梯空间,可满足报告,展示,演讲,休闲等不同情境。开放办公区采用模块单元组合形式的工位,可随人员或团队调整随时调整数量和组合形式。会议室融合在各个办公空间,提高效率。顶层斜屋顶区域的健身中心,充分利用顶层视野的同时,与办公区分开,避免相互侵扰。开放简约的餐饮空间,也可视需求布置为多功能厅。南侧挑高的图书馆,最大限度的利用自然光。等,以及双层高的空中花园,室外露台,散落在各层公共区域的休闲洽谈空间赋予了整个办公总部一种更人性化,更舒适的丰富的空间感受和使用功能。 场地景观,建筑形态,室内设计均采用一种语言表达应用,创建一个 “北方设计联盟系统”,创造一个丰富的氛围,为使用者提供一个具有强大的功能性,灵活,友好,有趣的办公环境!

设计场地位于街角,东侧与北侧分别坐落高层与多层办公楼,西侧有小片绿地,跨过道路是更为绵长的自然环境,连接城市绿道公园。一面是自然,一面是人工,两种反差的要素在场地中交汇,“云丘”的灵感悄然而至。 “丘”是自然环境的延伸与放大,高低起伏的柔软界面,提供开放性的同时,模糊了建筑与自然的边界,营造了森林般的空间氛围,可容纳小型聚会、临时展览、健身游憩等公共活动;穿过森林,通过下沉庭院进入地下空间,展览、推介等功能在此开展,光线从天空进入,形如洞穴,神秘,生动。 斜撑与筒体支起的上方体量由宛若一片漂浮在森林上的低“云”,巨大,轻盈,水平蔓延。“云”中置入的垂直庭院与“丘”形成了互动与对话。“云”内自由匀质的空间摒弃了先入为主的空间分隔与屏障,提供了不同类型和多样性的选择,为设计师创造了自主探索空间的舞台。 The design site is located at the corner of the street. There are high-rise and multi-storey office buildings on the east and north sides, and small green spaces on the west side. Crossing the road, there is natural environment which connects the city park. One side is natural and the other is artificial. The two contrasting elements meet in the field, and the inspiration of “Cloud Hill” is coming out. “Hill” is the extension and enlargement of natural environment. The soft and undulating interface can provide openness and blur the boundaries between architecture and nature, creating a forest-like space that can accommodate small gatherings, temporary exhibitions, fitness recreation and other public events. People can go through the forest and enter the underground space through the sinking courtyard. There are exhibitions, promotions and other functions here. Light enters from the sky and is shaped like a mysterious and vivid cave. The upper volume is like a low "cloud" floating in the forest. Supported by the diagonal bracing and cylinder, it is huge, light and horizontal. The vertical courtyard placed in the ‘Cloud’ creates an interaction and dialogue with the ‘Hill’. The free and homogeneous space in the ‘Cloud’ abandons the pre-emptive space separation and barrier. It can, therefore, provide different choices and create a stage for designers to explore their own space.

Mixing Bowl
YB92911-S59524

Mixing Bowl is a space to contain numerous people, groups or events. It is connected with all the levels and spaces, and also continued to each levels’ terrace. Each terrace has its own size, shapes and characteristic. The terrace on 4th floor has biggest area which is surely enough to hold group talk between universities and enterprises, and presentation of products or researches. 2nd floor terrace is a threshold after passing turnstile and walking on the first stairs. Wide steps on the top level have proper atmosphere to hold talk or presentation from the research groups to the universities or enterprises. Also, people can enjoy the drones’ presentation taking advantages of the high space while sitting on the wide steps. Especially, Mixing Bowl is directly connected with semi public programs such as reading room, exhibition hall, open office or AV room. Thus, people can plan an event of exhibition beyond their territories being expanded to the mixing bowl. Likewise, Mixing Bowl is a space designed to facilitate the meeting and interaction among the groups and people in a building. Throughout these countless encounter and meeting, next creation is possible. Because of the shape of the Mixing Bowl, people on any location can enjoy the unblocked view to the space. They can see others interacting and encountering and feel the atmosphere of creation. On the roof level, Sky Garden is located and people can rest on there and do ordinary encounters.

Humanity Machine or Vice Versa
YB92911-S59108

With the AI (artificial intelligence) and the self- assembly machine on the horizon, it seems the creation becomes a common task that machine will be able to perfume will, then what’s the point to propose an office building for human creations? We believe the true creativity not just coming from the most update, but also can come from the long past where humanity in its most innocent form. We propose a building for people to travel back and forth to the very past and the very present, thus to help people to explore the unknown, the outcome of this will be the creativity responding to future.

此为位于天津陈塘自创区的北方设计联盟总部方案,新区的建筑区别于以往的城市建筑,更加注重人的实际体验,注重人与人以及人与环境、自然的关系,由于场地周围只有为数不多的景观,且都是二维景观,缺乏立体景观,而且以往的办公建筑比较封闭,人与人之间缺乏充分的交流融合,所以本设计以塑造立体景观和开放性空间并促进人们的交流融合为设计出发点进行展开,南部扭动的盒子似从地上生长起来一样,用作办公、研究等功能,北部长方体盒子为餐饮、健身、休闲、影音等辅助性功能,每层围绕中庭形成了环形空间,有利于不同设计领域的产业链接在一起形成聚合效应,提高效率,也打破了以往办公建筑的封闭性,形成了整体上半透明的建筑,建筑使用pc板、玻璃等材料以开放的姿态融入到城市景观中,成为了萧条环境里的一个亮点。另外,办公环境的改善也更生活化而且有利于设计工作的交流Description of Design: this is the headquarters plan of the North Design Alliance located in the Chentang self-created area in Tianjin. The buildings in the new area are different from the previous urban buildings. They pay more attention to the actual experience of people, the relationship between people, and relationship among people, environment and nature. As there are only a few landscapes around the site, which are two-dimensional and lack three-dimensional landscapes, and the previous office buildings are relatively closed, so there is no sufficient communication and integration between people. Therefore, this design starts with the creation of the three-dimensional landscapes and an open space to promote people's communication and integration. The twisted box in the south is like a box growing from the ground and used for offices, doing research and other functions. The rectangular box in the north has ancillary functions such as catering, fitness, leisure, audio and video. Each floor forms an annular space around the atrium, which is good to the linking of industries in different design fields to form a convergence effect and improve efficiency. It also breaks the closeness of previous office buildings and forms the overall translucent buildings. The building uses PC panels, glass, etc.The buildings are also integrated into the urban landscapes with an open attitude and become the bright spot in a depressed environment. In addition, the improvement of the office environment is also more close to daily life and conducive to the exchange of design work.

漂浮聚落 Suspending Settlement
YBN-A-G96188

公共空间与私人空间、集体与个人、生产与生活、创意与教条在今天的语境中已经模糊了边界。任何行为模式都不再是单一活动,而具有同一和复合的属性,并即时投射到整个社会生活。传统办公空间是之前时代的产物,忽略和剥夺了个体的独特性和特异性,基于当今“生活+工作+其他”以及创意产业办公本身的诉求,我们试图通过模糊集体与个人,公共与私有,室外与室内,城市与建筑之间的界限,创造一个可以打破许多工作场所存在的等级的新空间。 在后福特主义生产下,工人成为生产线的要素,个人差异被抹去,这也是传统办公空间形成的社会背景。本次设计目标是通过工作场所的转变来改变这种意识形态进而激发个体创造力,具体设计策略包括: 从”形式跟随功能“到”形式跟随人“ 从”等级区分“到”平等存在“ 从”同构聚合“到”异构并置“ 从“空间触发事件”到“活动定义空间”

City Mirror
YB92911-S59577

The aim of the City Mirror project is to create a new city landmark, a building of an extrodinary design. This building should work as an attractive point for the district - it will become a new social activity area in the city. The site is open from three sides, so this allows us to create visual attractive building that can be observed from different angles and different points around the site area. According to the competition requirements we tried to minimize build-up area, so the main building volume is lifted up above the site. There are several advantages of this solution: 1 - we can use site area for creating an open space around and under the building 2 - we have better views from the building 3 - the building is visible at the distance A bottom part of the building, that supports the main volume, is covered by reflective panels of a complex geometry, that produce continious reflections. So the facade is continiously conected to the enviroment. An upper part is covered by sun shading panels. They protect rooms from extra solar heating and bright direct light. The building has four levels. Ground floor includes entrance halls, elevators and technical rooms. This level is for to split people flow. First floor is an common social area oriented to vizitors. There are education area, lectures zone and exhibition area. All areas are connected to each other, and one area can be used in different ways depend on needs. For example open lecute hall can be transformed to the exhibition area and so on. Every building level has two types of rooms: - open space - closed rooms (for access natural daylight to the room some partitions are made of glass. Second floor is for offices and dining. Third floor is also for offices and research Every floor has free space along the facade, that forms continuous circulations and strong connections between zones and areas. This solution helps to create flexible plan organization.

RE-ENFILADE

The form of the building is both abstract and gestural. Focusing on a single, clear volume, developed around a central courtyard. Large urban openings connect this central void with the exterior surroundings, providing views over the city. In a spatial disposition, the object is located at the left end of the plot, in line with the surrounding buildings, thus preserving the established street front. The back of the plot, the right part, is intended for a green area, supposed to be a garden, a park that will integrate the whole environment. The main idea is to add a value to the block, a perceptible angle with strong spatial implication. Complementing the integrating concept, the public level in the building that is foreseen to be accessible for everyone, to be public and to present a passage as the main circular path in the environment. The initial generated volume stems from the basic settings of location urban conditions. By managing the urban tools, the percentage of construction and the coefficient of utilization, a volume is obtained, that is, an archetype of the inner courtyard. In many different cultures, the inner courtyard establishes the conjunction of common space and common life, a place where all spiritual exaltation are realized. The next step is to divide the already received block structure into separate four volumes. With their separation, common yard is centralized as a focal point and it’s accessible from all sides. This stage is main role for creating a new conceptual layer had a Chinese traditional house, Siheyuan. In that essence, the concept is about making separate objects, each of them having a different purpose, belonging to one family and one unifying owner of the whole composition of several objects. That concept of separate volumes from all four sides is repeated in the upper half but with the mirror positions of the volumes. The new structure of the whole volume is divided into two parts which define the cut portions on the facade that emphasize the monumentality of the concept and the object. Each of the grouped four volumes has separate communication cores that allow easy primary communication across all floors. The program division is such that it ensures full integration of all users of the space, the level of publicity to the privacy of the premises takes place on a vertical. On the basement level, public contents are provided in order to connect the object with the surroundings around it. It becomes accessible and transparent. In the first part of the building, the first two floors provide all additional facilities that would enrich the stay of employees and visitors, commercial, catering and sports. At the intersection of the two building parts, two floors provide for all open programs in which the comfort of the employees will be satisfied. In that part there are all needs for rest, recreation, open amphitheaters, open lecture rooms and conference rooms. Hypothetically, it is an open square where various manifestations are derived in different parts of that level. In the upper parts, the last 3 levels are provided for office needs and research activities. The possibility of separating the offices is large and unlimited. Our proposal is a blend between the open and independent type of offices, supplementing the needs for carrying out research activities. The design elaborates the social, cultural and professional ambitions of the company by combining the workplace with other communal activities. Our new building echoes the aspirations of a modern organization, mediating between local and global, private and public, collective and individual, formal and informal, and in doing so establishing its dynamic identity.

The program division is such that it ensures full integration of all users of the space, the level of publicity to the privacy of the premises takes place on a vertical. On the basement level, public contents are provided in order to connect the object with the surroundings around it. It becomes accessible and transparent. In the first part of the building, the first two floors provide all additional facilities that would enrich the stay of employees and visitors, commercial, catering and sports. At the intersection of the two building parts, two floors provide for all open programs in which the comfort of the employees will be satisfied. In that part there are all needs for rest, recreation, open amphitheaters, open lecture rooms and conference rooms. Hypothetically, it is an open square where various manifestations are derived in different parts of that level. In the upper parts, the last 3 levels are provided for office needs and research activities. The possibility of separating the offices is large and unlimited. Our proposal is a blend between the open and independent type of offices, supplementing the needs for carrying out research activities. The design elaborates the social, cultural and professional ambitions of the company by combining the workplace with other communal activities. Our new building echoes the aspirations of a modern organization, mediating between local and global, private and public, collective and individual, formal and informal, and in doing so establishing its dynamic identity.

New Project
YB92911-S59615

Architectural decision The six-storied building is executed in the form of a rectangle with the put rectangular volumes at each other. The first floor consists of 3 cells, located in different corners of the site and they are the bearing skeletons for overlying floors. Cells have different functions and they are entrance zones with ladder and lift knots which divide overlying floors into volumes with different functions. On the first floor rooms with the serving functions, halls, the dining room for workers, and the lecture hall are located. Also entrance cells have interrelation with external public space as a part of the site. The public space is divided into areas with a pond, different gardening, pedestrian areas. The second floor is put on cells and hangs over all site. On the second floor open office spaces with modules rooms and recreation areas, a library zone and exhibition hall are located. The second floor connects as functionally and structurally the first and overlying floors. Also functional cells of the second floor are connected among themselves by bridges. The third floor also as well as the first it is divided into three rectangular volumes with different functions: these are vr/ar of laboratory with modules rooms painted in black color where, putting on VR glasses, the visitor gets to the space deprived of materiality – digital virtual reality. Thus it step by step turns into virtual reality. In the second cells on the third floor the independent office equipped with mobile partitions and meeting rooms are located. The third cell includes a library zone with the reading room. All of them are connected by a zone of terraces with the bridges connecting them. The fourth level includes a cell with library cafe, a cell with design school which includes the offices equipped with mobile partitions and also a cell with the modular closed cabins. The fifth floor consists of two cells with function of independent office and research center. The sixth floor consists of one cell with function of independent office and the restroom for workers. Facades of the first floor are executed of Fiber Cement Cladding. Facades from the second to the sixth floor are executed from stained glass glazing with multidirectional frames in the different levels. It is made for the light gets into office and public spaces. The roof is executed from the different type of roofing materials and glazing. Constructive decisions In the project the constructive scheme of the displaced type is used. The concrete is used on the 1st floor in the form of walls and columns. From the 2nd floor is applied the rack-mount and crossbar system consisting of CLT columns and beams. As overlapping five layer CLT overlapping 220 mm thick which lean on beams are used. Internal walls and partitions are executed from 3-layer CLT panels 60-80 mm thick. Cost efficiency Construction on CLT technology allows to save up to 15% in comparison with traditional technologies. This figure was received by the Australian researchers from TDA association (Timber Development Association) who compared four projects of the same buildings executed in three technologies: from reinforced concrete, steel and CLT technology. They counted the estimates executed according to working drafts and economy on average for 15% turned out.

Urban Technological Park
YB92911-S59679

By definition, an innovation space is a place where new ideas, new applications and new products emerge. Moreover, it’s a place where new experiments take shape. As for Hexi district, which shifted from an old industrial zone to developed industries, such an industrial area requires a new innovation space where different activities and concepts see light. Hence, this technological park is designed. As the technologist Kevin Belly believes, technology is a “Force of Nature” evolving along the same principles as any living species. Thusly, we must stop seeing tech and nature as sparring partners and start concentrating on helping them to dance. By focusing on that theory, Technology, Nature and Humans must interact as a productive organism. From that perspective, a new project emerges for blending these important parameters. This project is composed of different components: the Park, The Voids and the Technological space. By detaching the innovative and technological space from the ground, an urban industrial park is conceived. The industrial platform created by the fact of detachment will introduce a much needed urban interaction. It becomes a public platform where different events and activities take place; Also, it can be an area for experimenting any technological idea or innovative concept. This horizontal park is developed while considering vertical connection and circulation to get to the new innovative space blended with green spaces and human communication. It extends into a vertical promenade, thus the whole project turns into a park uniting Nature, Technology and Humans. This verticality is concretized by applying an oblique circulation and floating gardens approaches. These architectonic pieces increase the human experience towards this innovative space. Moreover, by adopting this approach the gap between human, nature and technology decreases. By taking the pedestrian ramps, visitors can tour to get to some new upper green platforms where different technological activities can take place such as pause-café or an exhibition. Floating slabs are pierced by some greenery. In their turn, greenery is developed as an object that transforms that park to a technological breathing zone. The technological space is lifted up to look like a digital cloud always floating. That floating space is imagined over the ground, creating a new vertical dialogue between these two fragments without creating any horizontal architectural scars or wounds. This concept introduces an urban, cultural and technological void, that is inhabited by communication and interaction. Moreover, the digital cloud is designed as fragments between functions and green voids, which enhance the sustainability of the space as a surface for communication and innovation. In their turn, these green voids are conceived to look like floating spaces too which allows the air and the sunlight to freely circulate in the space. All of these natural parameters increase the technological productivity. Furthermore, this approach of voids minimizes the distance between human and technology. Many functions are housed in the interior such as open and private offices, laboratories, libraries and exhibition open space... The core of the project is designed as an open space while taking into consideration flexibility as a key word for the office of the future. An office is no longer just a place to work, it can morph into various setups like a space to meet, think, play, exhibit and celebrate. The flexibility enhances the sustainability of the space and introduces our world office to a new logic of efficiency. In another hand, vertical connection continues also to the roof. It’s considered like a fifth façade that reflects the inner core and at the same time it’s where different activities like a gym and a bar take place. Finally, that verticality continues to the future, to the unknown of any technology invention where Nature, Human and technology become one single element.

The Model for Future Design Headquarters – WAVE
YB92911-S530

Situated at the center of Chentang Science & Technology Business District, North Design Union (NDU) Headquarters has responsibility to be the prototype of a new fusion among all industries. While neither innovation nor pratice, the NDU headquarts contains strong DNA of each. This landmark destination is sculpted to a place of forward-thinking innovation. The NDU truly becomes the heart of Chentang district with its integrated roof and energetic internal diverse programs. Our proposal aspires to a next-generational working model in which designers are creating in an increasingly cross-disciplinary format with curated inspiration experiences targeting specific designing outcomes. An open 5 levels height super-atrium engages all the users and experiences into one active promoting environment, becomes the soul of NDU headquarters.

我们将用地西侧的道路景观绿地一同纳入到本次的方案设计中来,使建筑、景观与城市形成完整统一的整体。 通过底层架空的做法让城市中的景观渗透进来,并在底层布置供企业总部及社会大众一起使用的餐饮及健身配套,以此营造出一个开放的空间环境。总部办公区域则由二层空间展开。 为了让市民更好的参与进来,除了将底层架空的配套空间赋予大众,我们还在建筑上扬的角部空间中植入共享的咖啡吧及展陈空间,来颠覆实体办公空间的唯一性,以此促进产业孵化。并且通过智能管控系统保证总部办公区域的独立完整性。使二者既可以共享,又互不干扰。最终形成一个集工作、生活、展示、学习、游憩于一体的综合性办公场所。 整个建筑的形态以及室内外空间如同一个大写的“N”一样匍匐在大地之上。强化北方设计联盟的标识性。而场所营造出的开放性、互动性、参与性也迎合了北方设计联盟“海纳百川,包罗万象”的核心精神。

光团 Bubble of Light
YBN-A-G97881

The design of the NDU headquarters acknowledges the Union as a community of creatives. A place for creativity to thrive is a comfort zone, a bubble detached from the turmoil of the outside world, a high performing building tailored to the human psychological and physiological comfort. The sequence of spaces and the gentle transition from the street to the courtyard to the building is studied to generate a vibrant but familiar environment, reducing intimidating and oversized spaces and fear of gathering. The permeable boundary wall and volumes provide enough enclosure of the gardens to invite the building working community to relate to the exterior with a sense of belonging, while demarcating the meeting grounds of the Union with the City. The walled garden, the lecture spaces, the restaurant and cafe areas at level 1 allow the building to operate as a closed environment but also to be open to the public to host events. The co-working spaces, the offices and research labs on the floors above are tailored to accommodate a range of design activities, from the most open and collaborative, to the confidential and subject to security protocols. Quietness and restriction of access increase going up the building, until reaching the top floor dedicated to archives, servers, library, and quiet breakout areas for the workers. The shape of the building tapers to the top, allowing to maximise the space for open and collaborative activities in the lower floors, and dedicating smaller floor plates at the top to accommodate restricted operations. The terraced, tapered and rotated building shape responds to geometry and orientation of the site to achieve high levels of internal natural lighting throughout, while minimising the external shading impact to the surrounding and maximising the space for gardens within the site.

The Unfolding Nature
YBN-A-G98486

In 1939 Frank Lloyd Wright designed the Johnson Wax offices with a dendriform column and glass-tube ceiling, which had influenced the office design for almost a century. Modern open office is now an almost immediate accepted solution for office building typology. However, with the swift change in lifestyle & information technology, a new solution is obviously required. Office is no longer solely a place to work especially for creative industry. From this, we ask the question: what should be an office for the coming future? “as inspiring a place to work in as any cathedral ever was to worship in” – Frank Lloyd Wright on Johnson Wax office Nature as a place for inspiration In our design, we have sought an answer to the question by putting back people into nature, an element which has always been a source of inspiration to people. We look back to the Chinese history and traditional culture of workspace far more back than the time of Johnson Wax office completion. Chinese poetry and painting has revealed a strong idea of appreciation of nature. Chinese traditional style of workspace called “shuzhai” is always located at the best location connecting to nature and scenery. We believe by borrowing this idea of integration of nature with human would be an retrospective future for the office solution. Work in nature With “nature” and “connection” as our point of departure, we locate our design at the west side of the site to enhance the connection to the urban park and define our own park at the east. We start our design by unfolding the ground diagonally into a series of landscape zone to maximize the connectivity between inside and outside and allow better view to the park. The unfolding action allows each floor has a higher potential to connect to the landscape zone. We also introduce a semi-outdoor courtyard space as vertical circulation, which not only allows more natural lighting into the office, but also provides efficient circulation to every program on each floor with minimized corridor space. Exchange in nature Bear in mind that nowadays “working” can be happened in anywhere, we emphasize our design to provide space for people to exchange, not just within the office building but also with the general public. Unlike traditional office building, which can probably allow space to interact with public on the ground level only, by unfolding the landscape zone up and down, a multi-ground condition is created to allow more space for interaction. We define part of the program of the office as “inspirational program” that foster creative thinking and “exchange program” that provide exchange with general public. By putting these programs at the perimeter of the building, which is around the roof park and sunken garden, these programs would enjoy the best connection to nature and general public. The level of the roof is also carefully articulated to bring people up from the urban park level and going back to the sunken garden. Moreover, the open office is arranged in zone concept, which allows possible separation of smaller teams but still maintains the openness of space. Live in Nature Livable office is also one of the themes we would like to foster in our design. We have introduced a series of wellness concept and environmental envelope design. Our undulating landscape zone is not merely just a roof garden but also facility that enhance the living quality for the office people. Different kind of activities are allowed at the landscape such as urban farming, outdoor sports and picnic zone. Unlike a typical completely mechanical controlled internal environment, full height casement window and louvers-cable green wall system are introduced to allow natural ventilation and blocking out undesired sunlight. We would like to create a comfortable home-like environment for people to create. “直當花院里,書齋望曉開” 唐王勃《贈李十四》詩之四 Our design is blurred in boundary, which is dramatically different from typical office building design. By blurring the boundary between people and nature, inside and outside, we wish to provide the best creative environment for the North Design Union to accommodate the challenge in the future.

The Unfolding Nature

YBN-A-G98486

In 1939 Frank Lloyd Wright designed the Johnson Wax offices with a dendriform column and glass-tube ceiling, which had influenced the office design for almost a century. Modern open office is now an almost immediate accepted solution for office building typology. However, with the swift change in lifestyle & information technology, a new solution is obviously required. Office is no longer solely a place to work especially for creative industry. From this, we ask the question: what should be an office for the coming future? “as inspiring a place to work in as any cathedral ever was to worship in” – Frank Lloyd Wright on Johnson Wax office Nature as a place for inspiration In our design, we have sought an answer to the question by putting back people into nature, an element which has always been a source of inspiration to people. We look back to the Chinese history and traditional culture of workspace far more back than the time of Johnson Wax office completion. Chinese poetry and painting has revealed a strong idea of appreciation of nature. Chinese traditional style of workspace called “shuzhai” is always located at the best location connecting to nature and scenery. We believe by borrowing this idea of integration of nature with human would be an retrospective future for the office solution. Work in nature With “nature” and “connection” as our point of departure, we locate our design at the west side of the site to enhance the connection to the urban park and define our own park at the east. We start our design by unfolding the ground diagonally into a series of landscape zone to maximize the connectivity between inside and outside and allow better view to the park. The unfolding action allows each floor has a higher potential to connect to the landscape zone. We also introduce a semi-outdoor courtyard space as vertical circulation, which not only allows more natural lighting into the office, but also provides efficient circulation to every program on each floor with minimized corridor space. Exchange in nature Bear in mind that nowadays “working” can be happened in anywhere, we emphasize our design to provide space for people to exchange, not just within the office building but also with the general public. Unlike traditional office building, which can probably allow space to interact with public on the ground level only, by unfolding the landscape zone up and down, a multi-ground condition is created to allow more space for interaction. We define part of the program of the office as “inspirational program” that foster creative thinking and “exchange program” that provide exchange with general public. By putting these programs at the perimeter of the building, which is around the roof park and sunken garden, these programs would enjoy the best connection to nature and general public. The level of the roof is also carefully articulated to bring people up from the urban park level and going back to the sunken garden. Moreover, the open office is arranged in zone concept, which allows possible separation of smaller teams but still maintains the openness of space. Live in Nature Livable office is also one of the themes we would like to foster in our design. We have introduced a series of wellness concept and environmental envelope design. Our undulating landscape zone is not merely just a roof garden but also facility that enhance the living quality for the office people.

Si He Yuan 四盒院
YBN-A-G98684

The new headquarter is inspired by traditional Chinese wooden box which shift-opened in sections to create 4 different boxes of differentiated porosity, height and layout that address the highly customised yet diverse inner structures of contemporary modes of working. After decades of search for the ideal layout for working space from repetitive cubicles to open plan for ultimate flexibility (especially in creative industries emerged since the 21st century alongside with the Internet), neither the hipster open-office and hot-desk, nor the old school independent work console alone is proved to be a success for all. The type of work, operation, mood, personality as well as human dynamics determine the optimal setting for work e.g. millennials like to switch working environment quite often from office to home, libraries to cafe, indoor to outdoor. Flexibility is not the ultimate aim, whose benefit is exaggerated and found to render giant under-utilised empty spaces, but the choice and diversity of settings based on shifting preferences. Creative work covers an exceptionally wide range of differentiated tasks on a daily basis, e.g. conceptual design, client meetings, translation from ideas to execution, production coordination etc. Across the spectrum, from folly-like pavilions, reconfigurable rooms, semi-open offices to glazed independent rooms, each contribute differently to a certain type of work culture and process, as well as mood and dynamics, which often swings along the roller-coaster process of creation. Hence, we propose the new headquarter as a full spectrum of working spaces. 4 different modes of layout in terms of usage, atmosphere, privacy, acoustic quality and light intensity are stacked and shifted on top of each other. Users can now select their optimal settings for work. Composed out of a uniform 3x3m orthogonal grid, the plans of the 4 levels present themselves as totally different identities. Storey-height of each level also changes according to the type of layout and programme. Users are entitled to pick their optimal work setting according to their mode of works and moods. Instead of being empty to be flexible, new workspaces should be well-equipped to be diverse and thus possible to merge with different programs. Greenery is maximised by locating the parking on basement, allowing patches of different textures, e.g. water pond, lawn, tree dune, hard paving, to be distributed on the ground to create communal spaces of different characters and scales. With cores and services on either side, structurally supported by slender steel columns in 6x6m grid vertically and 1mD ceiling-floor truss horizontally, the structural framework can work with different configurations. Each floor is protected by a buffering zone of either open or covered balcony space, creating an interstitial layer of work/circulation space sandwiched in the middle and filtrating sunlight into the interior. The alternating continuous terraces are also serving as an in-between space for social exchange and interaction which are well encouraged in creative context, like a peristyle in traditional Chinese or classical Western university architecture for discussions among scholars. Beside workspace, ancillary functions, like exhibition area, dining hall, lecture rooms, gym room etc., are indispensable for contemporary work-life balance environment. Instead of separating ‘work’ and ‘life’ as in the old days, the new headquarter absorbs these functions and inserting them seamlessly into the workspace according to their suitable settings. Cladded with thin aluminium panels, the porosity alters with the different levels in response to the types of working environment, e.g. highest porosity on ground, least on the top floor, fitting the natural light illumination and privacy level at their optimal intensity. The light material palette not only lighten up the interior, but also presents the extreme neutrality for users’ individual customisation to happen.

GREEN RE-UNION/重聚田园
YBN-A-G99163

Green Re-Union aims at exploring a spatial pattern for generic office architecture, which has a legible and flexible internal structure. This spatial experiment allows all the users, including designers and architects of North Design Union, related engineer teams, current or potential clients and even the general public who have interests in design and architecture, to enjoy a cozy but exciting environment together under one roof. The goal of Green Re-Union is not only promoting the efficiency of design sharing, the cooperation between design enterprises and academic institutions, but also enhancing the impact of Hexi District as an icon of national design industry’s basecamp, by bringing design minds into city life and social connections. - A Revival of the timeless workplace “Architecture should improve the lives of people who use it.” —— Herman Hertzberg In the end of 1960s, Dutch Structuralism architect Herman Hertzberg designed Centraal Beheer Apeldoorn with an exemplary spatial framework for office spaces, which has inspired the following architect for decades. Living in the 21st century, we are getting used to all kinds of myth for a modern environment in the future. The time is changing, but our deeper human needs of dwelling and social activities remain the same. The desire of getting close to nature, watching activities of other people, defining oneself in a social network, is essential human nature. Green Re-Union shows the ambition of bringing a timeless framework from half a century ago into modern city life in North China. It is seeking for the future in the past. - Eight Working Clusters + Three Atriums + A Roof Terrace Green Re-Union offers eight clusters of functional spaces, every four of which surround an atrium, with an internal street going through. This spatial framework enables every single spot inside eight clusters have the natural light, either from outside or inside; guaranties an efficient and flexible circulation system; encourages social interaction by connecting public and semi-public spaces together. Two different kinds of functional spaces are created: one is more regular and official, suitable for individual design enterprises; the other is more relaxing and flexible, used as the communicating spaces between individual firms and also between enterprises and visitors. A cover with vertical green protects the micro environment inside from the traffic noise outside, but lets the natural wind in. Between the green roof and atrium roof is a public outside terrace, providing the designers and also citizens with urban farming, gym, swimming pool, restaurant, bookstore, and the most important, the chance to bring DESIGN to the city, to the public. This roof will be used as an active platform for launching new design ideas, encouraging public engagement and educating the next generation. “重聚田园”旨在探索一种内在结构清晰并可变的通用办公建筑的空间模式。 这个空间实验让所有的使用者,包括北方设计联盟的设计师建筑师,相关行业的其他团队,现有和潜在的客户,甚至所有对设计感兴趣的普通大众,都能在同一个屋檐下共享激动人心并舒适宜人的环境。 “重聚田园”不仅要提高联盟内部的设计交流效率,发展设计企业和学术研究之间的合作,还要以将设计思想带入城市生活的手段,提升天津河西地区作为北方设计工业大本营的影响力。 - 赫曼-赫兹伯格的办公空间模式的复兴 早在上世纪六十年代末,荷兰结构主义建筑师赫兹伯格在Centraal Beheer Apeldoorn项目中设计了一个有示范意义的办公空间系统。这个空间模式启发激励了几代建筑师。 生活在21世纪的我们已经习惯于各种关于未来建筑环境的迷思。冰冷毫无人情味的科幻感未来空间一度成为追捧的对象。时代在变化,但是我们关于居住和社会生活的人类深层需求并没有变化。我们仍然热爱接近大自然,喜欢观察其他人的活动,并且需要在一个更大的社会网络里寻找和定义自己。 “重聚田园”展示了把一个永恒的空间模式从半个世纪之前带回当代中国北方都市生活中的野心,并以当代的技术手段,给予它新的生命力。 我们相信适合信息时代的前沿办公方式,与温暖,以人为本的建筑环境并行不悖。我们期望从过去中寻找到未来。 -八个工作舱 + 三个中庭 + 一个绿化屋顶 我们提供八个内含功能空间的工作舱,每四个之间围合成一个中庭,一条内街贯穿其中。这个空间模式能保证每一个工作台都有自然采光,或通过外部立面,或通过内部中庭;创造了一个高效灵活的交通流线系统;并通过穿越公共和半公共空间鼓励人们之间的社会互动。 两种不同的功能空间:一种形式更加规则和正式,适合于各个设计企业办公使用;另一种更加自由和灵活,用于各企业之间或企业与学术研究机构之间的交流。信息时代的设计办公越来越不依赖于物质空间本身,各种靠近中庭的灵活使用空间也加强了设计工作者的工作热情和交流意愿。 一个绿色保护罩阻隔了来自外部的交通噪声,同时允许自然通风。在中庭之上,保护罩之下,是一个公共户外空间,给设计工作者和城市市民提供了城市农场,健身房,游泳池,餐厅,设计书店。这样“设计”就能走向城市生活和普通大众。这个公共屋顶将成为发布重要设计思想的平台,鼓励公众参与的活动场地和以设计美育下一代的课堂。

The Crystal
YBN-A-G99303

The Crystal in the business district of Chentang stands out against the surrounding buildings and immediately attracts attention with its unusual facade solution. The main building has a large area and length, so it had to be divided to bring down the scale. The concept is to dissect the building into two parts, based on the general plan, so that the space between the buildings has its continuation in the streets near the roads. The shape of the building resembles a truncated, cut geometric shape. The building has a combined frame system (column grid 9x9meters). The columns are made of concrete for structural reliability. Pine wood is used in the interior, as it is an economical and fairly common material. Aerated concrete is used for the facade cladding, since it is a fairly cheap material, and it is also absolutely safe for human health, because it includes water, cement, a gasifier and fine aggregate. The facade glazing has a form of geometric figure (truncated trapezoid). Inside the building walls are practically everywhere glazed to double the cohesion and overall work of the working team. Entrance groups in both buildings are in the yard, so as not to distract attention from the dynamics of the facade. Above them on the third floor there is a glass transition between the two buildings, which is a continuation of the facade shape. The headquarters building has 5 floors. From 1st to 4th floors have a height of 5 meters, 5th floor is 8 meters height. Getting into the main building, we find ourselves in the atrium, from which escalators and elevators lead to other floors. On each floor there are closed offices with meeting places. Open offices can be transformed into recreation areas and vice versa. In the leftmost part of the building there is a special room, on each floor having its own function. On the ground floor there is a lecture hall, which can be transformed into offices, an exhibition hall or the recreation area. On the second floor there is a room for relaxation, socializing and games. On the third floor there is the research room, and on the fourth floor is situated the AV room. Gymnasium is located on the top floor. In general, on each floor, the areas around the atrium can be used both as open offices and as recreation areas. Partitions, fencing offices from the passage area, if desired, can be removed and altered under the dinning space and vice versa. In the second building there are an exhibition hall, a cafeteria, a library with reading space and a lecture hall for 480 people, which can be reached through the passage from the main building. The exhibition hall and library are universal rooms and, if necessary, can be used as office rooms and as meeting rooms. In total, the Crystal designed the main staircase in the cultural and entertainment building, as well as 6 evacuation stairs (3 in each building) and 10 elevators (7 in the first building and 3 in the second).

Interactive Void
YB92911-S59913

The design for the new general headquarters aspires to create a building that is adaptable, interactive, and accessible for everybody. The principal act is to elevate a substantial part of the program while lower the other part. By doing so a public void is created within and underneath the structure. As such the void fundamentally becomes part of the building, creating an informal cultural plaza within the formal boundary of the building which provides a new sense of dynamic interaction between the city and the young workforce within the design community. Chentang Business District will be surrounded by two substantial natural forces Tianjin green urban park from the north and the planned urban landscape belt from the west which creates an enormous pedestrian destination and connection through the district, and our project site is in the crossroad between these two belts, as such the proposal is aiming to emphasize these forces by making the park pathways gradually lead to the entry ramp that connects our project parts together, as such making the designed void of interaction a part of the green nature allowing more human flow inside the cultural plaza which could generate more interaction and information exchange between the different communities inside. The project program is divided into four main floors each contains different function. The floating floor above the ground level is the only volume visible through the city which creates a cultural landmark in the area and it function as an exhibitional and educational floor. While the lower volume contains three levels the first one is for research, the second contains working spaces, and the lowest is an open floor connected directly with the culture plaza and this one is a free level of interaction, relaxing, and exercising, which could be accessible by the public. In the same time all the interior spaces inside the different levels are flexible and interconnected through a simple open plan that is human-oriented which could create open and freedom modern environment that is capable of coping with the union future evolution of instant information spread, strong interaction, and enhancing innovation among the young talents. A dynamic ramp connects the interior spaces in different levels with each other as it provides a direct connection with the cultural plaza creating a special interactive experience between people working inside and the outer community through a transparent glass facade.

This project locates at a high-tech district in Tianjin. The design centre is used as a collaborative working space for five related departments. The design centre is also expected to gather people from educational institutions and many related enterprises for research and corporation. As a consequence, a sharing working environment with multi-functional and flexible space is demanded. Shipping containers are used as an icon which reflects the harbour history of Tianjin. In order to achieve a relaxing and interactive environment, the “containers“ are stacked and interlocked together to create communicative spaces. In the designing fields, all the departments are related to each other. These interlocked containers are held inside a big glass box to hint that designers are on the same board to share their experiences and ideas. However, each department needs their individual working space to perform usual and traditional working routines. The big box is separated into two boxes, one is transparent which represents a new type of working, and another box is more opaque which represents traditional working method. The “containers“ become a transition node between the collaborative and individual parts. A new type of working environment is presented in the central space. It provides corporation and communication spaces for employees from different departments. They are invited to the central space for doing collaborative works and relaxing. Meeting studios are designed to satisfy different space usage requirements. Movable modular furniture and panels are placed in the studio. There are several configurations from an intimate space for two people to a spacious hall for events. According to the cultural background of the city, three “container“ spaces on the top floor are used for reading and resting. There are mountain-like resting stairs providing sitting areas. Many small modular bookcases are provided, which are also flexible. This space will be a quiet and relaxing space for all designers to help them to release stress. The work of design should not be isolated within the design world. Designers also need connections and communications to the public. So we let the “containers“ flow down and out to become resting spaces surrounding the reception area and interior and exterior exhibition areas. Water features around the building represent the river flowing through the city. And it also represents how the ideas flow out from this design center. The central space will naturally attract people from different departments within the company. This is a convergent power which will help this design center internally become communicative and attractive. The landscape will become a feature that gets public power involved. And the existing of this design center itself encourages industrial convergence.

According to the cultural background of the city, three “container“ spaces on the top floor are used for reading and resting. There are mountain-like resting stairs providing sitting areas. Many small modular bookcases are provided, which are also flexible. This space will be a quiet and relaxing space for all designers to help them to release stress. The work of design should not be isolated within the design world. Designers also need connections and communications to the public. So we let the “containers“ flow down and out to become resting spaces surrounding the reception area and interior and exterior exhibition areas. Water features around the building represent the river flowing through the city. And it also represents how the ideas flow out from this design center. The central space will naturally attract people from different departments within the company. This is a convergent power which will help this design center internally become communicative and attractive. The landscape will become a feature that gets public power involved. And the existing of this design center itself encourages industrial convergence.

建筑分为北侧和南侧的两个体量,南侧体量是云空间,即信息的收集平台,功能上包括报告厅,BIM中心和信息汇集中心,同时兼具休闲健身娱乐功能,北侧体量是工作室,即总部后台,功能上包括许多小工作室。一方面,随着北侧小企业的不断入驻,其信息被汇总到南侧的云端空间,另一方面,通过其底部门厅引入外来人群。因此云端空间也成为了日常洽谈项目的地方。 未来“云”的概念应该体现得更加全面,不仅是在现实的建筑形体上,更多的是在虚拟的数据处理上。云端空间,南向信息处理中心,未来会通过APP跟外界形成互动,通过手机实时观测里面团队的状态,规模,空闲时段等,形成线上的交流平台。 公社是在公有制指导下完成的一个高质量高效率的运营团体的简称,作为集团体系下的运营合作,该模式着重体现效率。 北侧的空间还是可变的,以统一的清水混凝土隔墙为材料,在正交轴网的基础上叠加了一个45度的扭转轴网,因此在内部形成了很多的可变化空间和多重空间组合方式,以适应不同规模的企业的入驻。 南侧的云与与北侧的公社组合成为公社云,这个云端会向外界发散很多信息,成为信息处理和会谈商务的空间。 The building is divided into two parts. One is on the north side and the other is the south side. The south volume is the Cloud Space, which is the information collection platform. The functions on the south side include the lecture hall, BIM center and information gathering center, which also have leisure, fitness and entertainment functions. On the one hand, with the continuous entrance of small enterprises in the north, their information is summarized into the Cloud Space in the south. On the other hand, the entrance hall at the bottom introduces the migrant population. Therefore, the Cloud Space has become a place to negotiate projects on a daily basis. In the future, the concept of "Cloud" should be reflected in a more comprehensive way, not only in the actual architectural form, but also in the virtual data processing. Cloud space, southward information processing center, will interact with the outside world through APP in the future, and observe the status, size and free time of the team inside through mobile phone in real time, forming an online communication platform. “Commune” is the abbreviation of a high-quality and efficient operation group completed under the guidance of public ownership. As the operation cooperation under the group system, this mode focuses on the embodiment of efficiency. The space on the north side is variable. The uniform exposed concrete partition wall is used as the material to superimpose a 45-degree torsion axis net on the basis of the orthogonal axis net. Therefore, a lot of variable space and various spatial combinations are formed in the interior to adapt to the entrance of enterprises of different sizes. The “Cloud” on the south side and the “Commune” on the north side combine to form a “Commune Cloud”, which will spread a lot of information to the outside world and become a space for information processing and business talks.

Design creates varieties and flexibilities, like a piece of paper can be deformed as any kind of shapes and beyond our imaginations; therefore, to start this project, the site boundary as rectangular outline is intentionally transformed into a paper and expected to bring innovations by sequenced manipulations. So being an influential building doesn't need to be complicated or full of high technology. Instead, it can be attractive and dynamic only by few cuts on 2 pieces of papers. The cuts on paper 01 are eventually divided into 5 sections with different angles vertically, not only considering of aesthetics, but also generating the wing-like image which symbolizes flying. The cuts on paper 02 mainly take the roles of loading and forming the overall space by the combination of paper 01. Most importantly, the wing-like building is meant to form the metaphor of unconstraint and preparing of flyup, inspiring designers to fully devote themselves into the work and march forward with brave and confident as this project. In conclusion, living in the modern society, the design deeply influences on our daily life and becomes part of it because it's as soft as a paper which can be smartly distorted into any angle, forming the beauty and reaching our goals if we keep making efforts on it. Hence, inspired by the metaphor, the building of this project is not just designed to be the wing facade, but take advantages of it, expecting to create diversity both internally and externally.

The story of wellbeing work&life
YBN-A-G99998

The evolution of the office space model is a process of constantly seeking more pleasant space between the two poles: either too open to protect privacy, or too single modularization and lack of vitality. And we put forward the mode of future office space development, which not only guarantees the flexible allocation of space and enough types of activities from two-dimensional perspective, but also advocates a three-dimensional perspective to organize all dynamic activities, increase the chance of random meeting, and ensure team mobility.We believe that work should not be confused with life, but the process of work can only be more life-oriented, in order to enhance the desire to create. So we created a sieged but very flexible working environment, wrapped in different levels of vitality.

Building Urbanity The internal in-betweenness of the program, embodied by the ‘affiliated spaces’, is externalized to reach out to the surrounding and become one with its elements: - To the east, the building cascades up with a gradated landscape connecting and extending the green parks scattered in between housing blocks, thus trying to reach out to the local human density. The building U-turns, while cascading, to let through the site an underpass, and overlook the surrounding with a raised outdoor roof garden. - To the west, the building lines up with the facades of the buildings to its north, to suggest an enhanced pedestrian avenue connecting to the Tianjin Urban Park and Fuxing River; this will be further enhanced and humanized with the removal of the fences around the mentioned buildings. - To the south, along Nujiang Road, the slope of the building silhouette gradually picks up from an elevated garden to an urban expression mediating between the pedestrian avenue on one side and the high building blocks on its eastern end. - To the north, the service access road is suggested. - The east-west pedestrian bypass interlaces the building program with the pedestrian avenue, connecting the park-river to the northwest, and the residential neighborhood to the west. Bringing together the landscape and the human influx by connecting to the urban surrounding, sets the ground to access the ‘office’ typology of the building via a biomorphic tubular structure zapping in between the different floor plates and mediating between the architecture and the landscape, the indoor and the outdoor, with suggestive programs that partake in shaping the ‘affiliated spaces’. Program NDU is a mixed used development situated in Hexi District, also known as the “City Reception Room” of Tianjin, China. The building sets itself as an urban catalyst, an in-between mediator between architecture and landscape, indoor and outdoor, residential neighborhood and cultural emerging hub; the project explores the in-betweenness/ thresholds instilled in the concept of MA. While the building cascades vertically to bring the sidewalk to the roof garden and the urban alley to the building corridor; the Ying & Yang of the two sloped buildings embracing themselves into oneness with the surrounding. Moreover, our aim was to create a journey for the users to walk on and into the building, similar to Chinese mountains, where the access points act as caves that can be entered by man. The experience is illustrated on the landscape and the continuous connecting biomorphic tubes; these tubes act as a connecting mechanism which leads to the affiliated spaces and weaves them with the office spaces and landscape alike. The building elevates from the ground up, maintaining an urban underpass/ gap in-between that divides it into two parts on the ground floor anchored by two circulation/ service cores. A public plaza to the east resonates with all the gardens scattered in the residential neighborhoods to the eastside. A permeable envelope with public programs and multiple entries animate the ground floor. The permeability of the envelope migrates to upper floors through the cascading landscape that is tied to the indoor programs with the affiliated spaces bleeding in-between. The ground floor, being open to the public, consists of: a lobby, a café, a dining area, a reading area and an exhibition space. Multiple access points can potentially segregate between employees and the public at large. The technical spaces have been placed on the North part of the building, sandwiched in between the public plaza at the heart of the site and the service alley to its north. An escalator chute criss-crosses with the urban underpass to connect to the first floor’s affiliated spaces (play area, terrace, rest area). The affiliated spaces are centered in the office floor plate, dividing it into the independent offices and open ones. To the north is the conference wing, where the lecture hall, the meeting room, an A/V room and an outdoor amphitheater are concentrated in one location with indoor and outdoor (landscape) access point. The escalator chute from the first floor to the second floor peels out into the landscape to connect to a sunken outdoor courtyard (mini golf) and an outdoor grand stair that ties to the floor above and the ascending landscaped roof. Otherwise, the floor consists of open offices for social integration and administration spaces flanked by a nap pod area to the north and the outdoor landscaped wedge to the south. The third floor enjoys access to the green deck as it hosts unconventional open and independent offices. A covered escalator chute connects the outdoor of the third floor to the fourth floor gym. The same chute hosts a slide coming down from the roof garden to the gym. An outdoor gym deck subtractively carves the south eastern corner of this floor. The fifth floor is designated for technical functions, while the sixth floor in its entirety is an outdoor garden where employees and visitors can enjoy different views of the landscape below and Hexi District surrounding the building. With a total built up area of approximately 7600 sqm, this design proposal will encourage social integration and innovation.

This area provides direct passage to the upper floors with an independent staircase group. Each open office has meeting rooms. The meeting room on the 3rd floor is also an AV Room. On the west side of the 3rd floor, there is a Research Space. The 4th floor is for dining, recreation and activity. There is a dining hall on the west side of the floor. It is foreseen that the meals will be brought from outside and will be heated here. There is a gym and yoga room on the east side of this floor. These rooms have locker rooms, showers and steam rooms. The first basement floor is for parking area and installation galleries. Since it is not clearly stated in the list of requirements, a single basement floor was planned and the number of parking lots was limited to 60 cars. On the northern edge of the building there are services that serve all floors. In this area there are kitchen (for food heating and coffee), restrooms, cleaning supplies room. Installation shafts and circulation areas are also included in this section. All floors have balconies for smokers. There are bicycle parks on the right side of the building entrance eaves. The entrance eaves cover the building from the back and protects the exits of the services from rainfall. The roof of the building has an air handling unit located on the service block. With the solar panels to be covered on the flat roof, energy need of the building can be provided. The giant N symbol on the building facade can be illuminated by color changing led lights. This will refer to the organization's colorful logo. The floors where the conference hall and the exhibition hall are located have a height of 5.40 m; the other floors are 4.50 m height. High ceilings provide adequate spaces for installations and a comfortable working area. The exhibition area is 300 square meters and has a service kitchen for catering. The lecture hall has a capacity of 210 listeners and has a foyer of about 200 square meters. This area also has the possibility of catering. There are projection room and simultaneous translation room of the lecture hall. Overall, the building can serve approximately 150 employees and 300 visitors simultaneously and seamlessly. The building above the podium with an exhibition area with 5.40 m height and the open exhibition area is in the design of a large block hanging from reinforced concrete columns with deep cantilevers. Structural columns of the building shall be made by reinforced concrete construction technique and the slabs shall be made of steel. The sun shades that surround the building are titanium zinc alloy.

THE LINE
YBN-A-G100364

Line, in an abstract sense, is an invisible threshold that is simultaneously thin and thick. Line sets up boundary, it also could be the opportunity for crossing. The project intends to investigate the meaning of line and widen the threshold across multi-disciplinary fields through architectural instrument, inventing an incubator of innovation and collaboration for North Design Union. The most prominent architectural move- a diagonally cut through the building, where each floor is divided by this conceptual “WALL” into two compartments-open office space and interactive urban public space, purposefully misaligned between typical office level and public space level, which suggests dynamic visual dialogue between each two levels of activities and offers the heterogeneous spatial character of always seeing and being seen. This new typological intervention creates reciprocity between concentration and interaction as responding to the present homogeneous working environment as general. As digital tools are heavily relied in the present working environment of design field, we believe design creativity is more a process of interactive communication and mutual inspiration. Flexibility is largely encouraged by introducing uninterrupted open floors as for accommodating changing numbers of groups. On a more intimate scale, mutually permeated spaces between the lines on all floors allows for meeting/discussion/multi-media exhibition/workshops inhabiting smaller groups that generates constant interaction between formal and informal. Through its minimum footprint occupancy on ground and maximized 30m height on elevation, the exterior of the building assembles massive screen exhibiting the creative process of design from NDU, engages the city with an open plaza that emerged with ground floor lobby entry, auditorium and cafeteria. The concept is further articulated by challenging the traditional centralized office core layout and proposing an inside-out expressed core that grows from the central diagonal LINE- two pairs of scenic lifts are allocated in two atriums that one dedicated to office and the other serves for public space floors, while the egress stairs and service zone are exposed at the two ends, defining a vigorous urban interface. The coexistence of the two seemingly contradicted spatial conditions - partition and openness, is common goal but more of a cliché in Le Corbusier’s Domino system in majority of office/institutional types of architecture. In this project, we aim to establish a new pedagogical model that embraces both conditions through thinking “LINE” as new spatial apparatus. The line generates spatial division of two clear territories, where a flexibly defined “third” space dancing in between, amorphous in terms of both abstract form and articulated functionality, encourages clarity on plan and differentiation on section.

DESIGN VILLAGE
YBN-A-G100580

“WE BELIEVE THAT BEING FUTURISTIC IS TO BE A PART OF TODAY’S ACTIVE CHANGE” Hence we propose “The Village - A design HQ which creates optimum conditions for accessibility, participation and collaboration. The core organizing principle was to create a ”RIPPLE EFFECT” by dropping public inclusivity in the nucleus of the head quarters, and create a resonating work cluster which expresses collective intelligence in its entirety. The architecture is aimed at striking the balance between intensive work culture, spatial vibrance and innate beauty. The primary objective is to create a spatial mode, which respects one’s private work life, induce collaborative possibilities and inspire each other in a pleasant work environment. The spatial distribution across the building is visually and physically knitted at each level to bring a sense of belonging and be a part of a collective change. The shackles of traditional work environment are broken, clustered and domesticated yet keeping the formality of work life intact.

SOCIAL PLANT – 社交反应堆
YBN-A-G100591

SOCIAL PLANT In the effort of dividing and re-dividing by the most basic form of grid, the typical plan of ancient Tianjin city became not only the governor of civil life but the active stage of the everyday. In such scheme, a relatively common repetitive rectangular grid depicting a bare architectural structure represents the unity of diverse working and living environments. Meanwhile, devoted to a wider level, it diminishes the abundance and ambiguity of functionalism and metaphor to a type of architecture reduced to its purest aim - a typical grid structure devoted to staging the production of everyday work through the most basic architectural practice that has been tested by the primary element of the ancient city of Tianjin. A gesture that stems from the primary elements of the city, faded through time and modernization, yet more pervasive in everyday actuality. Detaching from hollow sculpturalism of contemporary architecture, we pursued to create a future office prototype by employing the most fundamental structural system – a triple-height space frame forming a flexible shell for vibrant human scale village-like workplace to emerge. By reintepreting an archetypical modernist principal of efficiency (Le Corbusier “dom-ino house”) we seek to provide spatial conditions for inclusive creative work community to function. This system allows to replace most of conventional concrete structural elements with the light-weight renewable wood and reduce the use of concrete – one of the largest CO2 emitters in the world – by 60%. Therefore it not only provides the maximum construction efficiency under minimised cost within the fast pace economic context of China but also advocate for an environmentally cautious building with a minimum carbon footprint from the very beginning of construction. By utilizing the principal concrete space-frame with the internal Glulam timber structural system, we achieved the possibility of easy repetition and multiplication of prototype in both height and size of the building, spreading as a typological work environment to various contexts in China or abroad. Within the minimal yet multipliable framework, innovative working spaces spring in the centre as flexible and customizable structures that can be freely designed by the office users. In parallel the triple-height informal work areas concentrated at the edges provide the testing ground for research and inventions as well as space for knowledge sharing and creativity fueling. Diverse forms of workspaces intertwine with each other, creating unexpected encounters which complete the figure and ground relation. Such lively and interactive strategy of future office scenario determinately stands against the conventional rigid office tower strategy and bravely imagines

BE YOUR OWN ARCHITECT
YBN-A-G100611

One of the most important factors in office design is that, the users experience better relationships and feel the sense of belonging in the workspace. In this way, “open-plan” offices has been used by many architects to improve this sense by increasing flexibility, equality and transparent relationships. But as you know this strategy has its own advantages and disadvantages. Nowadays most of architects believe in that, a fixed design can’t be responsive to our variable needs and conditions. So the best architecture is that one can change by its environmental and cultural context. In this design we tried to reach to this kind of architecture by designing movable walls that users can easily change them according to their demands. They can be their “own architects” and shape their workspaces and relationships.

FLOATING MACHINE – 漂浮机器
YBN-A-G100685

Our Floating Machine is an inspired example of a hub-and-spoke design, with few other elements thrown in. at its core, however, its purpose is to allow people to come together in a hub, then disappear into their spokes, only to reconvene later, and repeat. 6 levels of floating terraces are stacked over a basement and one level flanked by canteen and gym hall. public spaces are formed between these and an intelligent textured glass skin wrapping the entirety to precisely diffuse light, translucent below and transparent above. The Building two entrances are arrived at by long and short ramps, at the corner of both sides of the gallery level, full building height atriums give both the visitors and end users a sense of the building dynamics. We have designed the building to be a flexible, forward-looking instrument that can illuminate the transformative possibilities of a contemporary working environment, the NDU headquarter design proposal does not draw distinctions between formal and informal spaces. The fluidity of the design allows for experimentation and will encourage new ways to work and collaborate that will capitalize on the ingenuity and creativity apparent throughout the campus.

My Work Is Demolition
YBN-A-G100724

本方案打破传统办公楼空间的束缚,将建筑连根拔起,推倒,解构,得到建筑内结构和空间重新定义的结果。

BRAINSTORMING
YBN-A-G100733

There is always a lack of continuity in traditional spaces. We want to create a continuous place of uninterrupted interaction through guidance at different levels. What we think of as creation is to be as connected as possible to the different things around us, so this design avoids too much small segmentation, and we want designers of different backgrounds to work in an environment where they can inadvertently relate to each other. This is also the original intention of the whole design.

互通有无
YBN-A-G100754

本次建筑设计起始于对原有办公空间的重新思考。将传统空间和新型共享空间相结合,使得原本单调和线性的办公空间变得丰富。本次设计寄希望于将日常的活动赋予新的意义。让原本平淡无奇的活动变得值得期待,让属于不同公司的人得以互相交流,;拉近客户和市民和公司之间的距离。

Diagonal Paradise
YBN-A-G100784

The site is located in Chentang Science and Technology Business District, Hexi District, Tianjin, with the entire business district in the southeast and the urban greenway park in the northwest. A. Overall design level: The two triangular blocks of the volume face the park and the business district respectively to enjoy the beautiful scenery.At the same time, the landscape trail set on the first floor becomes the continuation of the adjacent greenway park. B. Function and space level: This program highlights the design of communication space, which integrates various functional elements into communication area and office area, and sets them separately on each floor. The large steps connect the communication areas on different floors, making them a whole. C. Use level: The communication area can switch between different usage modes, such as daily use mode, large conference mode, academic exhibition mode and so on. The office area emphasizes the project-oriented work mode. Employees can choose to work in open office areas or communication areas. When there are projects, they are assigned to different project groups and merged into the team office area. D. Visual level: The corresponding façade of the communication area is covered with continuous colored glass louvers, symbolizing the alliance logo “N”; and the corresponding façade of the office area is provided with a rotatable metal sunshade.

The Originals
YB92911-S60065

Design Interpretation: “The Original” is inspired from the Aurora. The Aurora does not have its actual shape. Its shape depends on the electrons and their energy, which participate in creating the Aurora shape. The electrons come from different places, therefore, different energy and different electrons will create different shapes and colours of the Aurora. As in our life, electrons present the young generation, and the Aurora presents the country. By designing “The Original”, I would like to pass my message on the youth that keeps working hard and be more creative in order to brighten up your country as the way the electrons do, they try their best to make the Aurora has the most beautiful appearance ever. Your country is beautiful and you are proud of it, show the world how proud you are, the best way to do this is bringing your country up to the next level. To make this happen, the young generation, let’s take an action, work harder and be more creative. Do not afraid to take up the challenge, do not afraid to make a good change for your country and show the world who you are. One electron cannot create the shape of the Aurora but a lot of electrons will do. Same as us, one person will not be able to make a big change but all of the young generations together, you can do it and make it happen. Through ”The Original”, I would love to say that young people do not afraid to take the action to change your country in the better way, make it shines and beautiful as the way the electrons do to the Aurora. Together, you can make it happen! About the site: I had a little bit understanding of the site by looking through the map. I think this is a good location because it has a great surrounding. I would like to make use of the river behind the plot to become an iconic view for this building. It is located in the area which influenced a lot from Chinese culture. In my opinion, culture is the only thing in this world that we could not create. So it is very important to me to conserve and develop the culture of the city, especially Chinese old architecture. How to make the youth realise their destiny and brighten up Chinese old architecture are my starting point of the project.

CLIFF
YBN-A-G100846

Multifunctional complex for the design community is a place that allows you to develop many creative professions in one place, and the design industry as a whole. The main task is to make it convenient for work and promotion of young specialists. And also to unite all professions under one roof, creating a unique working space. The design site is conditionally divided into two parts: public (main alley, park, exhibition halls) and working (main building). From the public open center of the plot, one can climb a wide staircase to the public library located on the upper floors of the building. On the first floor of the building there are presentation spaces designed for the presentation of the designers of their projects. The second floor is dedicated to computer technology. The third and fourth are workspace for architects and designers.  All workspaces are designed to motivate people to communicate and achieve common goals.

Inside Out
YBN-A-G100864

The headquarter complex is designed as two-layered structure. According to the site requirements the building coverage doesn't exceed 35% of the whole territory. The site perimeter is surrounded by the high "perforated" shell. Therefore, the empty space near the building is connected by the shell to create an absolutely new extraordinary public space. The "perforation" makes the shell transparent for the sun light and open for visitors. The construction of the design center is moved to the courtyard boundary. It provides a lot of additional space for exposition. This building shows us an unique connection between inner and outer spaces, between the process of designing and its result. The design is created inside the building. And further the produced art is exposed outside the building in the space of the courtyard. Cultural public events such as artistic performances, concerts, lectures and others will also be held here.

The headquarter complex is designed as two-layered structure. According to the site requirements the building coverage doesn't exceed 35% of the whole territory. The site perimeter is surrounded by the high "perforated" shell. Therefore, the empty space near the building is connected by the shell to create an absolutely new extraordinary public space. The "perforation" makes the shell transparent for the sun light and open for visitors. The construction of the design center is moved to the courtyard boundary. It provides a lot of additional space for exposition. This building shows us an unique connection between inner and outer spaces, between the process of designing and its result. The design is created inside the building. And further the produced art is exposed outside the building in the space of the courtyard. Cultural public events such as artistic performances, concerts, lectures and others will also be held here. On the main facade of the inner building is planning to build a great slow-walking staircase with a slow steps. The staircase becomes a tribune for observing art installations or events in the courtyard.

MOOD OFFICE
YBN-A-G100946

Mood office is an interactive building that embraces the feelings and emotions during the design process. All the designers from different fields are following a similar design process. There are 11 main steps as meeting with a client, sketching, working on a computer,… Some of these steps of the design process are returning and repeating. The mood office wants to embody those steps of the design process while giving them the exact space. The designer has diverse feelings and emotions during those steps. According to those feelings, space should shape the program of the building. The most creative step of all is the sketching. Sketching is part of the design process that appears in all the design fields. It is a creative, innovative, relaxing and vibrant step. A free shape volume that stretches from the ground floor and rise upon the last floor is shaping this step of the process. This volume is covered up with a bamboo wall. Materialization of all the spaces is according to the feelings during the design process. This volume is a secret oasis inside the mood office and it is approached from each floor. Here the designers could feel like they are in one unique room and get inspired by each other, but at the same time feel as individuals. Additionally, visitors from the ground floor can have a fast preview of the work of the entire building, without interrupting the designers. On the ground floor activities like an exhibition, cafeteria, restaurant, and meeting with the clients could be found, as the most public part of the building. The stairs, toilets and all the enclosed rooms like storages, wardrobes are positioned in the rectangular core and are repeating on each floor. This element also divides the reading area from the other more active part. There, readers can relax, while watching in the trees. On the third floor, there is a brainstorming room in an oval shape. This room could be an escape space where designers from different field could have a small chat, laptop reading, listening to music etc. This room also could be enclosed and become an audio-visual room. Some interesting events and project sharing could occur there. The plan is generally open and everywhere there is computer work. Occasionally appear the movable wooden elements on wheels that could create a small classroom, meeting area with clients, space for prototyping and modeling, … Building ’s façade is made out of two layers. The first layer is the glass façade from all the sides; the second layer is a metal structure that holds movable elements that move from the energy of the strong winds that blow in Tianjin. Those movements create electric energy that is used for the Mood office. On the first layer, there are attached curtains with which the light could be controlled from inside. The landscape around the building is filled from three sides with dense trees. This is because the environment around is very radical and the buildings are high and the streets are wide. This three belt could protect the building and create a new world where designers could feel isolated, concentrated and relaxed on their work. Comprehensive economic and technical index and control requirements: - Site area: 8118.7 m2 - Actual land area within boundary: 4911.3 m2 - Floor area ratio: 1.3 - Building coverage: 32% - Height: 21m - Green coverage: 35% - Building area per floor: 1600 - Building total floors: 4 - Building Total area: 6400 m2

SOFT METROPOLITANISM
YBN-A-G100975

SOFT METROPOLITANISM Proposal for North Design Union Headquarters The concept of metropolitanism remains one of the most critical aspects in the construction of contemporary cities. Traditionally associated to size and bigness, metropolitanism is nowadays strategically associated to strategies of accumulation, juxtaposition and collision of different programs that create metropolitan conditions of contemporary life. The city of Tianjin is intently developing its metropolitan condition. Our proposal for the new NDU HQ wishes to become an optimistic intervention able to qualify both the city and the institution, endowing itself with a powerful representative condition as well as a programmatic efficient performance. The project is a crystallography of prisms that orchestrates its surrounding open spaces and establishes an iconic relationship with Tianjin's skyline. PROGRAM: NDU HQ as a lab for new modernity Inside the building, program has been arranged in plan and section so that working and flexible spaces can be used jointly or separately at demand. Each prism is a programmatic entity that is architecturally defined and equipped for maximum, dedicated performance. These prisms, either horizontal or vertical, have been arranged around a central ring that remains flexible and fully equipped for perpetual change. Instead of being just a foyer or information area, this space in-between is like a trading arena where users inform and stimulate, a place where the interface between different prisms is organized -spaces for exhibition, work, interaction, and play-, making of the new building not only an efficient working platform but above all a laboratory for new modernity. URBAN STRATEGY: programmatic contextualism The project site is strongly generic, both spatially and morphologically. The new building orientates its public areas -café, foyer, workshops- towards the main street. Outside elements such as staggered arenas or green topographies endow this place with a playful condition and make of it a park of programmatic condition. More hermetic programs such as list of programs here are placed at the upper prisms. They are configured sections of overlapping platforms that can be used jointly or independently at demand, according to programmatic needs. Space reserved for public use is located on ground level, and takes the shape of topographies, amphitheaters and meeting arenas. ENERGY SUPPLY: an efficient icon The new NDU HQ has been designed according to environmental technology criteria that apply the following guidelines: constructive optimization of the building, energetic demand limitation, intelligent façades, radiant heating, eco-tested building materials and optimized maintenance. The project takes full advantage of its sprouting geometry. Its body is a layered mass made of different material strata -concrete, glass, solar panels and leds- that intermingle and stack successively, creating a design that is both sustainable and performative. This way the building: has thermal inertia -thanks to its thick façades; filters natural light -thanks to its stacked transparencies; produces energy -thanks to its technological terminals. Radiant heat and cooling are implemented through a system of subterranean pipes that benefit from stable earth temperatures. Thus, by genetically modifying the metropolitan paradigm, a project emerges that is at the same time: Sustainable (it is not just low-energy, it produces energy); Performative (it is light and massive, dark and clear, light-absorbing and light-emitting); Iconic (it operates at a local and national level).

As society continues to understand the human mechanics more and more, a virtue that has been around for centuries, but is not old, continues to be rediscovered: that balance is a key to health, productivity, and life. Is this then a balance between work and life? This question is supported off an assumption that the two are like oil and water. The division between the two so blurred now in a 21st century world where the workplace is no longer a physical destination, but a web that connects us all, a cloud always surrounding us. As 'what we do' comes into our homes, 'who we are' must come into our workplaces. The Northern Design Union understands the changing world around it. As an international hub for cultivating new ideas, growing individual talent while cultivating a collaborative culture and channelling collective strength, the headquarters is designed around the principles of: • Health and wellbeing must be paramount in the workplace - this requires addressing human's ingrained needs for view, for natural light, for shelter, for community, and access to nature. • Adaptable space provides the ability to make choices. Making choices is hugely important for empowering professionals to adapt their environments. Fluid spaces support fluid work needs, supporting and not resisting the workforce's needs. • Buildings are more than just a formula of structure and materials. Sensory awareness is the first philosophy that babies acquire; it is the lens that they, and we, understand the world around us. Therefore, the architecture can awaken the spirit - or let it sleep. • Sharing of ideas is key to great achievements, and overcoming unsolvable problems. The Information Age has forever changed our society, and so the workplace of today and the future. Open Plan office of the early 20th century was rejected as it dehumanised the worker as merely a cog. So too, the Cubicle Office of the late 20th century, as the mass enclosure suffocated collaboration and well being. Today, a new workplace philosophy has arisen: the Living Workplace. A place of open collaboration; a place of focused work. Individual desks provide a traditional workset, team tables provide collaboration. Breakout space of flowing arrangements allows for fluid needs. Enclosed meeting pods and larger offices provide focused teamwork while remaining mobile to changing office teams. In fact, most of the furniture is moveable, most fixed to castors allowing anyone to alter their environment to maximise productivity. Larger items are merely assemblies of smaller interchangeable components, temporarily fixed into a multitude of arrangements. This movement within office furnishing design is not bespoke: collections of these items are well established across the world, allowing pricing competition. Why create permanent fixings that only require demolition later in a fast-paced, ever changing world? The architecture of the Northern Design Union Headquarters is neither modern nor old. The form is assembled from hexagonal floors, hinting to the architecture of the traditional pagoda such as the Liuhe Pagoda ( 六和塔) or the The Iron Pagoda (鐵塔) of Yougou Temple. In today's context, these hexagonal form with columns on the edges, in combination with a honeycombed concrete slab, would allow enough support to eliminate the need for wasteful internal columns. These units are also stacked non-uniformly to donate space back to nature, creating areas of sedum roof beside office windows. The modern tradition of uncompromising walls of curtain glass have been challenged through the integration of the traditional complexity of a screen. This has practical application too, reducing the percentage of glass to create a light filled, yet a thermally insulated, facade. This is further improved with a leaning top, shading the high-angle summer sun while allowing the low-angle winter sun to enter. The diagonally climbing atrium of the central complex further allows light to enter the workplace, while also providing views, place-making, and the sense of communal respect needed for any headquarters.

Northern Cloud: The North Design Union Headquarter is imaged as a piece of ":cloud" floating above the earth. In essence, it is based on three ideas: 1. Non-hierarchical Working Space: Through split cores and a loop structure, the working space in plan is defined as non-hierarchical and transparent, encouraging exchange and communication. The light roof and facade grid diffuse light evenly to every corner. 2. Cloud Atrium: As the headquarter core space, the Cloud Atrium connects office floors visually at different heights, and reflects the dynamic relationships between them. It is also an event space that can host diverse activities. 3. Open Structure: All the floors are hanged by thin columns from the Vierendeel truss roof supported by five cores, which allows easier future structural modification than conventional structure system.The ground floor has no columns but multiple accesses. Especially, in southern garden area, cores are buried in vegetated berms, ensuring a floating visual effect from main street. Crowds will gather in this building like clouds. 北方设计联盟总部犹如一片云朵一般漂浮在大地之上。 在本质上,它的设计基于三个出发点: 1.无等级的办公空间: 分散的核心筒和环状空间结构使得办公空间更加匀质及透明,去除等级的空间更有利于交流和互动。网格状的屋顶和立面将阳光均匀的反射到每个角落。 2.“云中庭”:作为总部的核心空间,云中庭在视觉上连接了不同高度上的办公楼层,反映了它们之间活跃的互动。它是一个集体的大客厅,也作为一个事件空间容纳多样的活动。 3.开放结构:地面以上所有楼层都有细柱悬挂于由五个核心筒桁架屋顶。相较于传统的结构,为未来可能的变动提供了更大的灵活性。同时,地面层能够实现拥有多个入口的无背面和无柱的空间。尤其在南侧的花园,支撑结构融入起伏的地形,强化了漂浮的效果。 建筑柔软包纳的态度将使人们在此云集。

空间的解放 Liberation of space
YBN-A-G101617

The motivation of the scheme is to cater to the special group of designers. Instead of trying to fit in the space set up, give the space back to the users seems wiser. Therefore, the program further exploits the method of traditional planar organization and imbeds it into the change within section domain , which advance the two-dimensional planar liberation to the comprehensive three-dimensional space liberation. The specific approach of the scheme is to first determine the relatively stable functional space and the core tubes in the suspension structure, and give profound changes to the surrounding variable space by sliding and rotating them. The horizontal plates enrich the spatial combination in the section while strengthening the structural integrity. The deformation of the space requires the users to communicate with each other, so as to achieve the purpose of event occurence and promote accidental interactive behavior. In addition, the design hopes that under the condition of certain elasticity of materials, it will be able to deform into more possibilities in the future .

The guidepost of Chentang
YBN-A-G102335

本设计从三个维度上对建筑进行设计--城市维度,街道维度,内部空间维度。在城市维度上,基地位于中心城区与滨海新区的连线上,应当充当两区域的纽带,带头掀起发展的浪潮,这赋予了建筑时代性的特征;在街道维度上,陈塘工业区的快速发展使得该地块重要性日增,建筑应该扮演城市客厅的角色,此外,建筑位于城市景观带的节点处,不大的体量应该思考如何为城市带来活力,最后,基地位于陈塘科技区的入口处,思考建筑与科技区内的关系也指导了设计的发展;在内部空间维度上,为满足开放性的创新空间要求,通过对人流线的行为分析,将内部功能划分重组,利用楼梯+平台的方式创造了高度开放集中的空间。 This site is a link between coastland and hinterland,it plays a significant role in the development of this city.As a redeveloping district and a junction of Chentang & residential district,this buliding should be open to the public actively.And near the cross of city green areas, this building's shape should become a sculpture of the green areas,and let the good landscape into Chentang.What's more,as a gate of Chentang ,this build should be a guidepost and landmark.Through the behavior analysis of the designers, the internal functions are divided and reorganized by the stairs & platform,to encourge communication.

Theory [idea] Human mind needs stimuli, which can propel its work. It is impossible for creation to come into being in neutral and pure space. Environment must be defined and unknow to experience simultaneously. As well it must disrupt thought process, surprise and encourage. [body] Our bodies are tools of our thoughts. They are resposible for transmission. As long as we are inseparable with them, we need to respect existing of our outer layer and use them in the fully way. Everyday we should explore their limits. [architecture] Beginning of every historical epoch is connected with technological discovery. Currently, the main problem of society is garbage production. Potential of architecture is sufficient to solve the garbage problem and to contribute toward new material discover. Project [part of] ANTHRO is part of Chentang Science & Technology Business District in Hexi district, in Tianjin. Project is not separated, but is autonomous. This additionaly in District perspective value provides perception of space as a different parallel worlds. [kompozycja] Land area is closed in semi-transparent box. In its interior are designed pavilions. This intervention creates extra-space between interior and exterior. Whole site development is based on orthogonoal grid 5x5 m. Superb significant is greenery role, which fills up the space by growing in controlled way. [forma] Architectural form is the result of direct relation with body. It is its reflection, imprint, absoulte completion. Function of given form comes from specific part of body – tool of function doing (e. g. reading room occupies Eye pavilion). Technical [material] Specially for ANTHRO project is designed new material. Blend of recycled scobs and paper connected with gypsum mix. Higher percentage of wooden scobs and paper elements in mass provide holes in surface. Thanks to that becomes kind of perforation, which enable to light to come into interior and naturall ventilation. [construction] Contruction of box is steel with wooden elements, finished by policarbon structural wall. Walls of pavilion base on bamboo reinforced construction finished by new material, implemented as a shotcrete.

Theory [idea] Human mind needs stimuli, which can propel its work. It is impossible for creation to come into being in neutral and pure space. Environment must be defined and unknow to experience simultaneously. As well it must disrupt thought process, surprise and encourage. [body] Our bodies are tools of our thoughts. They are resposible for transmission. As long as we are inseparable with them, we need to respect existing of our outer layer and use them in the fully way. Everyday we should explore their limits. [architecture] Beginning of every historical epoch is connected with technological discovery. Currently, the main problem of society is garbage production. Potential of architecture is sufficient to solve the garbage problem and to contribute toward new material discover. Project [part of] ANTHRO is part of Chentang Science & Technology Business District in Hexi district, in Tianjin. Project is not separated, but is autonomous. This additionaly in District perspective value provides perception of space as a different parallel worlds. [kompozycja] Land area is closed in semi-transparent box. In its interior are designed pavilions. This intervention creates extra-space between interior and exterior. Whole site development is based on orthogonoal grid 5x5 m. Superb significant is greenery role, which fills up the space by growing in controlled way. [forma] Architectural form is the result of direct relation with body. It is its reflection, imprint, absoulte completion. Function of given form comes from specific part of body – tool of function doing (e. g. reading room occupies Eye pavilion). Technical [material] Specially for ANTHRO project is designed new material. Blend of recycled scobs and paper connected with gypsum mix. Higher percentage of wooden scobs and paper elements in mass provide holes in surface. Thanks to that becomes kind of perforation, which enable to light to come into interior and naturall ventilation. [construction] Contruction of box is steel with wooden elements, finished by policarbon structural wall. Walls of pavilion base on bamboo reinforced construction finished by new material, implemented as a shotcrete.

Invisible Valley
YB92911-S60187

When we enter to the information age, science and technology makes a revolutionary progress in our daily life and working mode. The digitized information and working mode question the space and spatial system, and furthermore the nature of architecture. So what will be the future headquarters for design industry? What are the style, space and spatial system of the headquarters when we enter to the future information age? The site is located in the northwest corner of Chentang Science and Technology Business District, facing the urban landscape belt. The headquarters for the North Design Union is to redefine two traditional relations for eco-friendly architecture and innovative office mode. One is to reverse the relations between ground and building to eliminate the violence of architecture that has occupied the surface. The building, which has dug into the ground, provides a natural environment on top of it, while expanding the urban landscape belt to the site. The park, which is built on the roof of the building, connects the surroundings visually and physically, and becomes a public place to attract people through flexible movement and new activities. The building, which has disappeared down to the surface, defines a new relations between architecture and city, and completes an invisible architecture without boundary between architecture and landscape. The other is to change the spatial system from vertical to horizontal in order to maximize the flexibility of space use. Building liberated from the coverage ratio and the floor area ratio enhance the horizontal relationship of the space by using the whole site as the floor area. The spacious floor evolves into a series of terraced floors like a cascade descending from the ground towards the basement, forming a design valley. Each floor consists of a covered part and an uncovered part. The covered part is a formal space that accommodates a defined program - a traditional workspace - and the uncovered part is an informal space that accommodates undefined programs. The informal space formed by the interconnected terraces offers an alternative to the formal workspace in the solid part of the building, allowing for an unprecedented expansion of the vocabulary of workspaces. Paradoxically, the "Design Valley" for the North Design Union discovers the possibility of new architecture by erasing architecture.

Fantasy Island
YBN-A-G102455

The Fantasy Island Our project of designers’ headquarters is called “The Fantasy Island» and is divided in two main parts: «the rest island” and the working space. «The rest island» is the tower in the center of the building where the kitchen, the dining room, the café and places of rest are situated. All the positive energy is concentrated here so only genius ideas come to mind in this place. The working space that is situated on the perimeter, is the best place to improve ideas. It includes offices, the library, the experimental floor, the lecture room and the AV-room. The part of the second floor is used for sports activities. The exhibition space on the first floor is opened for visitors and is also used for social and cultural function and master-classes. The feature of the project is the courtyard full of light with four pools where in special capsules olive trees are grown. There are some interesting thing about the material used for the tower – Lemtek. Lem is the material that consists of clay, sand, dust and gravel. It is used for walling, interior designs, and restoration. Though used in ancient civilizations, it fits modern concepts of sustainable architecture. It is affordable and useful for human’s health, has the minimal eco-trace and doesn’t have waste products as subjects to reuse. For the construction of the building, a frame system with a six-meter grid of supports is used. The appearance of the building is formed by the game of light and shadow. White color is a reference to the first layouts that each designer makes to see the pure idea. The building expresses the mind process of the designer: the origin of an idea → elaboration of details → an experimental layout.

ARMADILLO | Qiú yú … “Office Building Under the Protective Sky”
YBN-A-G103896

ARMADILLO | Qiú yú … “Office Building Under the Protective Sky” Today's business world is too focused on the return on investment and too nervous about unpredictability to give its employees the freedom to be creative. Creativity needs time and mental space to flourish, something that does not fit well with inflexible schedules and deadlines. Restrictions are the enemy of creativity because creativity requires being exposed to ideas that come from different sectors and spheres of life. It cannot be rewarded as more traditional work objectives would be rewarded and it cannot be isolated from one person: it takes a community for creativity to truly develop. Creative evolution has been driven by a series of interconnected trends that have combined to change the way we succeed in the modern world. Today's workspace is increasingly complex, with circumstances changing rapidly and unexpectedly. With less time to make decisions, the old hierarchies have been banished and at all levels of the organization there is a need to respond, react, make decisions and solve problems. Add to this the rise of automation and artificial intelligence, which promise a general restructuring of the way work is done in different sectors. Machines are taking over a large proportion of the work of transactions and processes, reducing the task of human beings to focusing on activities that are less structured, solving new problems and generating new ideas. And for all this, more creativity is needed. FOSTERING CREATIVITY THROUGH DESIGN One way to build a Culture of Creativity is to look at the physical design of the workspace and consider how it can inspire better Creative Behaviors and Work Styles. To achieve this, we have identified 3 fundamental principles applicable to the design of our workspace: • A pleasant and relaxed atmosphere can help to lower the mental filters and pressures that lead us to block our unusual ideas. Incorporating well thought-out design elements and seating into the space that promote postural changes and comfort promotes emotional connection with and between employees. • Spaces can also nurture creative trust if the right tools and technologies are provided to encourage equitable participation, as well as privacy where necessary. For example, spaces with vertical planes with writeable surfaces give visibility to thoughts and allow others to create a shared understanding, as well as to feed on each other's ideas. • When it comes to creativity, there is no universal standard. employees must be supported through the different stages of creative thinking with a fluid ecosystem of zones ranging from individual exploration to social connection, team building and evaluation. This gives employees the freedom to choose where and how to find their creative spark. SPACE INNOVATION Innovation is the secret ingredient for a business to prosper and succeed. It is not easy to find success, but it is easy to foster a work environment that fosters everything that influences the process of innovation. The myth of the lonely genius getting one Eureka after another in a closed room is an outdated cliché. People need other people to increase their chances of success. The real creative moment comes when a group of people innovate together, mixing their ideas and creating a scaled thought. This is how the new generation is how it prefers to work, creating new requirements for companies that want to compete and lead. The workspace can become a catalyst for developing creative and innovative thinking. So here are the keys to creating offices that encourage innovation and how to put them into practice. 1. Making SPACE MORE FLEXIBLE • Create a space with fixed and movable elements with movable panels that can be moved. • Use configurable and mobile solutions. • Get the privacy you need for audio and video conferencing. 2. Designing an INSPIRING ENVIRONMENT • Abundant natural light and good views. • Include natural elements. • Use color as a function of the need to stimulate or relax. • Designing comfortable and useful spaces for informal relationships 3. Create COLLABORATIVE SPACES • Position individual workspaces around group workspaces to maximize visibility. • Create group areas for brainstorming meetings and informal information points. • Plan for extensive digital content and facilitate the involvement of virtual teams in other locations. • Facilitate the possibility of displaying the information vertically with blackboards, surfaces where it can be glued or projected. 4. Making SPACE as a TOOL • Making space technologically connected. • Consider walls as spaces to display information. • Make the storage spaces accessible to the whole group. • Consider the elements to store, both to store materials and to define spaces. 5. Creating a SOCIAL SPACE • Place casual collaboration zones near work areas so that it is easy to take a break and exchange impressions with colleagues. • Facilitate spaces to relax and chat: coffee tables, armchairs... • Create welcome spaces for visitors with a view to the space and the work process. • Facilitating access to food and drink COLLABORATIVE + INTERACTIVE SPACES Employees could choose the level of privacy they need from a wide variety of collaborative and interactive spaces, as well as shielded or enclosed environments for concentration, personal conversations, or a quiet break. Personnel can also manage their level of physical and virtual presence, with areas and technologies that allow face-to-face interaction or virtual collaboration with colleagues located in other facilities. This Space Book Room encourages a change towards more creative work, integrating architecture, furniture and technology to inspire the creation of group ideas, individual concentration and work in pairs. These spaces, designed to meet the needs of individuals and teams at various stages of the creative process, encourage equitable participation and smooth transitions between different modes of work, balancing the need for a deep immersion in content with moments of reflection and inspiration. Several design proposals support the co-located and distributed equipment. Open Project Areas are spaces where ideas, information and prototypes can be generated quickly from concepts. Anyone can come through the area, participate, share ideas and help solve problems. They are à la carte spaces compared to those assigned to a single team, and can be easily modified to meet your changing needs, which also increases their usability. Multidisciplinary Teams are formed and dissolved from their needs, but functional centers are a constant feature of the New Headquarters. They are places where peers from the same discipline can gather information, improve their specialized skills, teach and learn, and reinforce their sense of belonging and identity. The Design Studios also include environments for individual concentration work, as well as enclosed meeting spaces and videoconferencing rooms. Centrally located are a resource center with printers and supplies and a cafeteria to encourage informal talks. The Workshop Areas are a well-equipped space for prototyping and solving practical problems. Instead of being relegated to individual office spaces, as is often the case with this type of space, it is connected to daylight and surrounded by green areas, intended to be an inspiring environment designed for both well-being and work.

七重阁—Seven-storey pavilion
YB92911-S60241

天津历史悠久,遗迹众多。如何用建筑架起过去和现代的桥梁,讲述这个城市的故事,如何用传统空间原型构建充满创意的现代办公空间是本方案的出发点。 建筑将蓟县独乐寺观音阁以现代的方式进行了重新诠释,采取悬挑结构,并在东西两侧通过半室外空间的设计将传统建筑的悬挑概念表达出来,在此之上还设置有挑板,起遮阳作用,且奇数层和偶数层悬挑长度不同,如此两次悬挑将传统建筑的屋檐关系强调出来。建筑红色调与传统呼应,成为片区的标志性建筑。 内部办公空间采用了传统院落的空间布局,以两层为一个单元,下层是公共活动区域,上层是办公区域,院落办公的中心是休息空间,其它功能围绕休息空间布置,并向休息空间开敞;隔墙与结构柱间隔布置,结构成为建筑空间的表现要素。院落式的空间布局具有象征意义,同时向中心开放的特点也增强了使用者的交流,契合项目的功能定位。 Tianjin is a city with a long history,the city has many historic buildings.This project wants to use architecture to connect the past and the modern, and build a creative, modern office space with traditional space prototypes The design reinterprets the Avalokitesvara pavilion of Temple of solitary in Ji county,Tianjin City in a modern way.The building adopts cantilever structure,Design of a semi-outdoor space on both sides of the east and west express the intention of traditional architecture,there are also pick-up plates for shading,and the pick-up plates of odd-numbered layers and even-numbered layers are different in length, such two overhangs strengthen the traditional intention.The building uses traditional red as the main color, and it is the landmark of the area. The internal office space is the pattern of the traditional courtyard, two floors are a unit, the lower floor is the public activity area, and the upper floor is office area.The center of the courtyard office is the rest space, and other functions are arranged around the rest space and open to it. The partition wall is not aligned with the structural column, and the structure becomes the performance element of the building space. The courtyard-style spatial pattern is similar to the traditional space, and the characteristic of opening to the center enhances the user's communication and fits the functional positioning of the project.

A PLACE TO GROW – NDU HQ
YBN-A-G104309

The new NDU HQ / A PLACE TO GROW is a plug n play co-working building with facilities shared amongst freelancers, researchers, companies, and startups which enables all these different groups to coexist and collaborate and grow under one roof. URBAN CONCEPT The new NDU HQ is conceived to become an urban junction in the Hexi district aiming to connect the scattered buildings of the district to the Tianjin Urban park along the river in the north and the possible green linear park in the south axis. To achieve that the western part of the site is preserved as an open space that becomes a park/plaza adjacent to the building. As an urban suggestion, a landscaped overpass is proposed to connect the NDU site with the two blocks in the west and southwest. The building itself tends to become a logical extension and a part of the proposed green corridor by setting a small footprint on its ground level that provides a covered public space and by offering a landscaped green roof/park accessible for its users and occasionally for the public. Aiming to achieve the optimal orientation within the urban context a cascaded volumetric strategy is being used to: -Diversify the office spaces typologies within -Minimize the building footprint -Achieve the best vistas towards the west, east, and south -And to achieve the optimal sun protection towards the south TYPOLOGY Typologically the building does not belong either within a tower or a courtyard typology although it contains the elements of both. The given parameters and the proportions of the site enabled a cascaded interior landscape configuration through two intertwined entities where businesses could grow and expand: - NDU OFFICE PARK - an open office area conceived as a cascading interior landscape/ideal for freelancers and incubating startups - SURROUNDING OFFICE based on the co-working principles/startups and small companies The first - NDU OFFICE PARK tends to reinvent the decaying concept of the open office by keeping its primary values of exchange, transparency, and communication but solving the problems of lack of privacy, concentration, and productivity. This is achieved by introducing a concept of a floating workplace, so each user (individual or a company) can book a desired type of spot and the necessary facilities needed for his work within the proposed gradient of working unit typologies. The proposed units are offering different degrees of privacy and different equipment such as modular enclosed office pod, cross - cubicle, meeting room, workshop bubble. The proposed unit typology may be a starting point but the system itself is meant to be a self-correcting one allowing different and new DIY arrangements densifications and expansion. The latter could be achieved through occupying the interstitials space between the roof and the cascaded interior landscape by using the roofs of the office pod to get extra space. The second - A COWORKING AREA where small and medium companies could find their place if they have overgrown the open office phase but still maintain the connection to the creative hive in the NDU park by sustaining the visual connections and sharing the facilities within the building. SHARING happens on two levels: first - towards the public and visitors (roof park and the street level facilities such as gallery, cantine/restaurant and a gymnasium), second within the building itself (meeting rooms, AV rooms, lecture hall, facilities, sanitary zones,). Floating workplace concept enables both individuals and companies to efficiently use the facilities of the HQ through the booking based space management software.

当代设计师的办公模式有团队式、公司式、自由职业者等,他们对于办公空间的需求有不同之处,也有可以互相借力之处。团队与公司的模式都需要讨论、开放办公、独立办公的空间,配套有图书馆、讲堂等公共资源。而自由职业者仅仅需要一张桌子就可以满足自己的工作需求,但是作为个体,却无法享受到上述的公共资源。因此,我们希望把这三种设计师人群聚合到一起,互相借力,互惠互助,充分使用空间资源,在同一个空间中激发不同设计师之间的交流,实现跨界、跨领域的合作。在不同楼层中办公休闲空间围绕不同的大空间展开空间布置,尽量让这些小空间能够感知得到大空间的存在,又透过剖面处理使大空间彼此之间又相互联系。同时我们在空间构成上也有所创新。与传统的办公楼空间构成不同,我们用空间的语言营造更为开放流动的空间,我们相信设计师在开放的交流环境中更能迸发灵感。 结构与空间的形式也是我们设计中的着力点。传统办公楼为了依托框架结构形成围护感,会采用房间的形式,这样的做法打断了空间的连续感,已经不适用于当代设计师的办公模式。我们希望结构本身就能够产生围护感,给予使用者房间的感觉,在大尺度的平层中,实现小尺度的包裹感。此外,拱形结构的好处还在于结构的优化并可以与构造相结合。 Modern working modes includes team mode, company mode and freelancer. These three types are different on their space requirements but they can cooperate in one space and help each other. For example, freelancer could rent the available desk, which can avoid the waste of space. Meanwhile, we make different composition of space compared to the traditional way. We try to create a flexible and free atmosphere, in which designers can communicate freely, leading to their great inspiration. In our design, the energy of public space is very strong. People in different floor can feel the space of hall, library and exhibition. Additionally, the form of structure and space is also important. The traditional working buildings will build rooms to create the feeling of retaining. But it's not good for the fluency of space. So we design this structure to create the feeling of retaining while not building any walls. Meanwhile, the form of structure could help people feel retained in such a large building.

North Neuron Network Campus (NNNC)
YB92911-S60718

North Neuron Network Campus (NNNC) The main idea of the project is to implement scientific achievements of different professions, such as brain science, into architecture. The influence other fields have on architecture as well as the communication between architecture and other professions can create innovative and inspiring spaces and functions, that would make it possible for humans with different background to interact, share information, exchange knowledge and therefore learn from each other. As evolution developed mainly due to the disruption of existing systems, the input of different systems and the adaptation to the constant changing environment, my goal is to create an environment that can provide a platform to support the evolution of human kind. The architectural design is strongly influence by the research of brain science. The brain is able to learn and improve all throughout life, as it is working as an open system where new experiences form new neuronal connections and therefore our brain is learning new things. The brain is a complex system that has its main functions in different specific locations. The Parietal Lobe is focused on object classification, spelling, numbers and processing. The Occipital Lobe is focused on visualizations in 3D and color identification. The Cerebellum Lobe is focused on cross and fine motor skills, hand and eye coordination and body balance. The Brain Stem is regulating the body temperature, heart rate, swallowing and breathing. The Temporal Lobe is taking care of memory, language, facial recognition, hearing, speech and emotions. The functions of the Frontal Lobe are mainly the emotional and high mental decision making, problem solving and complex movements. As described above the different parts of the brain are very well organized and have their specific functions at specific locations. Nevertheless, the functions and the connections between the different areas are very flexible. For example, If a human becomes blind, the brain restructures and makes other parts of the brain more important to be able to compensate the limitations. Humans are individuals and therefore we all have a brain that is differently structured. Our individual experiences made our brain form and organize very individually. The complex connections of the simple functions form individual skills. In my architectural proposal for an innovative headquarter for North Design Union Headquaters I focused on the individual simple architectural design and functions, as well as the combination and intersections of the simple architecture that form complex, unusual and individual architectural spaces. The simple spaces and functions are placed in 4 vertical volumes, such as administration, open offices, individual offices, renting spaces (like naked hub system), resting rooms and storage rooms. The shape of the 4 vertical building volumes are the fundamental architecture shapes like a cone, truncated pyramid and a box and they represent the fundamental human senses like vision, hearing, smell, taste and touch. The complex spaces are placed in the volumes that horizontally intersect the 4 vertical volumes. These architectural shapes have a simple base geometry, such as an ellipse and a lofted circular based shape. As the 2 main shapes intersect and therefore are in a physical connection to the simple shapes and functions, they form (like a new complex connection of neutrons in our brain) complex functions like: virtual reality (VR) space, research space, lecture spaces, library, cinema, flexible function stage, sports spaces and resting areas. These functions are partly defined and partly undefined, humans will discover and form the functions by themselves. These functions provide the platform for humans to interact with each other and exchange ideas and knowledge. The horizontally intersecting spaces need to be very inspiring and special in the architectural language to provide an environment for playful learning (relaxed interactions). The individual and inspiring spaces should motivate humans. Humans can learn anything during the whole life, but we need a playful and motivational environment to make the maximum use of our capacity. The new headquarter should be a (campus like) place to attract people from all over the world. People who are interested in the exchange of ideas, people who are attracted to each other and who are looking for an adventure. The architectural language of that building part should be playful and complex to match the needs of an inspiring and adventurous environment. The main adventurous architecture building part in my proposal is the ellipse. This space is comparable with the function of the Frontal Lobe of our brain. That is the space I would like to design to provide a platform for people with different personal and professional backgrounds. That is the space where very specific topics can be discovered and discussed. It is designed as a hovering amphibian theater that invites humans to socially interact, an open space that makes it possible to provide accidental interactions. The functions of the main spatial architecture element should be flexible. It can serve as a library, lecture hall, a stage for artists and musicians, a convention center or an exhibition space. The roof in my proposal functions as an urban roof. It invites human to the inspiring architecture of the NNNC Campus. It would serve the basic human need of protection as well as physically connecting all the different volumes shapes and complex functions under one roof. Our NNNC home! A home that respects all humans as individuals willing to expand their horizon.

Edging-off the tenacity of office designs; SYNTHELL is an intellectual and innovative idea contriving to create a human centric and sustainable design. A designer’s office should be one where there is freedom of fusion of creativity and intelligence to bring about marvellous innovations. The shells on the façade create a sense of belonging meanwhile facilitating diverse functions. The framed modules offer flexibility for programming spaces in an innovative way while retaining the building’s character and coherence. It encourages inspiration, creativity and productivity – and reflects the company’s culture. The prominent green landscape flowing from outside to inside adds liveliness to the form. The building communicates with its surroundings and proudly showcases its sustainability and diversity at all times of the day. Shells: SYNTHELL creates a strong, characteristic identity of the Chinese culture, exhibited on the facades in a contemporary fashion; a revolutionary prototype of an office. The very sustainable green building that brings together different masters of design collectively and the contemporary design of the shells aims at an ambitious international audience. The three-dimensional gridwork is designed in a smart way that enables spatial flexibility and open thinking. Each module is detachable in the sense that it aids in four-sided expansion, in case needed in the future. Every shell can be given its own function depending on the user’s choice, creating an interactive space thereby increasing the shell’s utilization efficiency. The modules on the lower floors are open to all, they are to be used for conventions, exhibitions as well as retail stores. The shells altogether create a sharing space for reading, meeting, working, negotiating and exhibition along with leisure areas for mental rest. Ground Floor: · Reception · Zen Garden · Leisure spaces; cafeteria, gymnasium, retail shops, reading room · Exhibition · Mezzanine: Private rooms, Break-out spaces The reception of the office is spatially oriented in such a way that it gives a brief impression of the entire picture. A lobby leading to a zen garden located centrally on the ground floor creates a blissful ambience for any visitor. The reception also leads to the office exhibits and works adjacent to the reading and waiting area. The rear side of the floor has meeting and conference rooms for clients. In this case, the cafeteria alongside the gymnasium act as a great break-out space. An access beside the conference room leads to a mezzanine floor which holds informal meeting spaces and private rooms for bigger teams to work together. First and Second floor: · Open plan · Breakout spaces · Mezzanine – Individual offices · Private offices The first-floor and second-floor orientation facilitates an open office plan. The spaces are arranged in a way that the spaces remain flexible as well as operational. For every two to three sets of workspaces, a break-out space has been provided with dynamic furniture. The central area of the floor has an open lobby acting as an informal meeting space. To increase creativity levels, the mezzanine floors on these floors ground individual spaces which can be used and personalized by the employees. Top floor: The top-most floor has been privatized and restricted, it mainly bases the research laboratory and BIM centres, accounting and filing sections. The outer facades are made using porous, energy efficient, dynamic panels which bring in controlled sunlight and aid the interior air circulation throughout the day. The building provides shared facilities for both the office and the neighbourhood. At site level, the landscaping has been done keeping in mind the Chinese culture, frequent zen gardens and pond bridges along with an open-air theatre, induce a sense of inclusion among the visitors and the employees. The landscape is inviting and often provides the users in the vicinity a relaxing environment. The design is nature-friendly and minimizes the impact of the building on the environment. The built form adapts itself as per user needs and thus help in forming greater community.

本方案根据一个单元框架进行拼贴衍生,犹如汉字“开”,通过拼合形成不同的形态。希望建构一个与场地环境有机交融的形体,并通过在外围护结构的变化形成不同的空间形式,虚实交融,创造一个开放,共享,活跃,愉快,有机的办公环境。 通过体块间的围合,形成一个中央庭院,通过局部的虚处理,与外部场地进行有机融合。在南北主要功能体块之间进行桥接,通过高差错落布置让其拥有良好的西面景观视线。 不同体块间通过连廊进行相互连接,形成一个有机的整体,并通过错位的楼梯丰富空间体验。在连桥以及局部设为共享交流空间,促进使用人员之间的交流,并营造一个良好的办公氛围。在屋顶局部种植植被,在舒适使用者的生理需求时也可满足使用者的心理需求。 This plan is derived from a unit framework, constructing an organic blending body with the site environment. It has different spatial forms by changing the envelope structure, The False Coexisting with the True. To create an open, shared, active, pleasant and organic office environment. A central courtyard is formed by enclosing the building blocks. Let the building and the external site organically integrated by setting up the openings in the part of the building,bridging between the main functional blocks in the north and south. And it has a good view of the western landscape by vertical layout. Different blocks are connected through corridors to form an organic whole, and enrich the space experience through dislocated stairs. Build bridges and parts of buildings into shared communication space are to promote communication between users.

本方案根据一个单元框架进行拼贴衍生,犹如汉字“开”,通过拼合形成不同的形态。希望建构一个与场地环境有机交融的形体,并通过在外围护结构的变化形成不同的空间形式,虚实交融,创造一个开放,共享,活跃,愉快,有机的办公环境。 通过体块间的围合,形成一个中央庭院,通过局部的虚处理,与外部场地进行有机融合。在南北主要功能体块之间进行桥接,通过高差错落布置让其拥有良好的西面景观视线。 不同体块间通过连廊进行相互连接,形成一个有机的整体,并通过错位的楼梯丰富空间体验。在连桥以及局部设为共享交流空间,促进使用人员之间的交流,并营造一个良好的办公氛围。在屋顶局部种植植被,在舒适使用者的生理需求时也可满足使用者的心理需求。 This plan is derived from a unit framework, constructing an organic blending body with the site environment. It has different spatial forms by changing the envelope structure, The False Coexisting with the True. To create an open, shared, active, pleasant and organic office environment. A central courtyard is formed by enclosing the building blocks. Let the building and the external site organically integrated by setting up the openings in the part of the building,bridging between the main functional blocks in the north and south. And it has a good view of the western landscape by vertical layout. Different blocks are connected through corridors to form an organic whole, and enrich the space experience through dislocated stairs. Build bridges and parts of buildings into shared communication space are to promote communication between users. Planting vegetation on parts of the roof is used to meet users ‘physiological and psychological needs.

创客花园
YBN-A-G105271

在生活日益碎片化的今天,我们的活动在不同的场景被细分,拆解营造出适宜我们日常生活的空间;我们追溯工作空间的发展,也发现了这样一条脉络,沿着员工工作活动的“小径”,我们拆分出了应对不同脑力活动强度的工作模式,不同的等级在不同的场合下可以相互交织、激发。 很幸运,一处坐落在城市绿轴旁边的“公园”将为我们的创想提供落实的场所,在这里不仅仅是一座脑力工场,更是一处激发创造力的花园。

项目位于河西区陈塘国家自主创新示范区,新时期的陈塘,积极融入“一带一路”、京津冀协同发展重大国家战略,加快“一基地三区”建设,认真贯彻落实市委市政府部 署要求,主动适应经济发展新常态。并以“创新、融合、共赢”为宗旨,打造强强联合的北方设计联盟阵营。在本方案的设计上我们希望营造一座功能高度整合与共享的办公社区,以满足基本功能需求为前提,以共享为设计目标,通过融合和创新的空间关系,设计出新型高效公映的办公空间。 在方案的设计上,核心概念在于共享,在长方形的基本原型中,我们植入了一条之字形的公共交通与共享流线,在解决联系的问题的同时,流线本身的转折错动形成了不同的空间层次,为办公者提供的丰富的空间体验。 在整体的关系上,我们对功能进行了一定的疏解,与之字形流线相结合,形成了上下左右的基本分区关系,下部功能以对外开放型为主,上部功能以对内办公型为主,同时,中间通过影音室的插入,又将空间分成了东西两个区域,东侧以开放型空间为主,承载开放办公、图书空间、展览空间为主,西侧以私密型空间为主,主要包括独立办公、会议空间、餐饮空间等。 在建筑的语言上,形体上我们强调了体快的切分,形成强有力的几何关系,通过大的悬挑营造一些不稳定性和趣味性,建筑立面上我们希望通过不同间距的格栅,将不同功能罩在一起,形成一个相对完整的形体关系,同时,立面的格栅还可以起到遮阳的效果。 The project is located in Chen Tang National Independent Innovation Demonstration Zone in Hexi District. In the new era, Chen Tang has actively integrated into the "one belt and one road" strategy and coordinated development of Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei, and has accelerated the construction of "one base and three districts", conscientiously implemented the municipal government's deployment requirements, and actively adapted to the new normal economic development. With the aim of "innovation, integration and win-win", we will build a strong and strong alliance of northern Design Alliance camp. In the design of this project, we hope to create a highly integrated and shared office community, to meet the basic functional needs as the premise, to share as the design goal, through the integration and innovation of spatial relations, to design a new and efficient office space. In the design of the scheme, the core concept is sharing. In the basic prototype of the rectangle, we implant a zigzag public transport and sharing streamline. While solving the problem of connection, the turning of the streamline itself forms different spatial levels, which provides office workers with rich spatial experience. In the overall relationship, we have a certain degree of deconstruction of the function, combined with the zigzag streamline, forming the basic zoning relationship between upper and lower parts. The lower part is mainly open to the outside world, while the upper part is mainly internal office. At the same time, through the insertion of the audio-visual room, the space is divided into East and West regions. The eastern part is mainly open space, carrying the open. Office, book space and exhibition space are the main ones, while private space is the main one on the West side, which mainly includes independent office, conference space and dining space. In the language of architecture, we emphasize the fast segmentation of the body, forming a strong geometric relationship, creating some instability and interesting through the large cantilever. We hope that through the different spacing grids on the facade of the building, we can cover different functions together to form a relatively complete body relationship. At the same time, the facade grille can also play a role in shading the sun.

Folded Landscape Building
YB92911-S61298

The site is deeply affected by the highrise buildings on both sides of the north and south. The east side of the site is affected by the shadow of the high residential buldings in the south, which cause the lighting and vision of the site to be very limited. Therefore, the new building is planed to build on the west side of the site to obtain better lighting and greater visibility, while the east side serves as a greening ground and a venue for citizen activities. The new building is attempt to introduce natural forms into the bulding to shap the interior spaces, freeing people from the boring tradditional work spaces to inspire people’s desire for innovation and creation.

Boundless in a Bounded Space
YB92911-S20245

In a successful workplace promoting scientific technology, every corner of space can be a potential spot of evoking desire of invention. Process of brainstorming, working, and communication is not confined to their working desks. Apparent boundaryless space should be designed to facilitate the creations of powerful and unconstrained idea from inventors. The design of a free flow environment in a bounded space to foster boundless creative minds becomes a challenge.

We decided to imagine life in the future, say, in 30 years. People used to have fantasy about the world in 100 or even 1000 years, But, for us , constrained by our designer thoughts, have only the picture of 30, or 50 years after in our mind. (WORK & LIFE) Working and living are considered to be the two sides of one coin, but there should not be contradiction between them,unless you are forced to live ,or forced to work. In the future, living and working will homogenize into one. In our 30 year after picture,aka our PLAN-NET,each individual is a working unit, using the PLAN-NET system to negotiate and match partners, to cooperate with people who share the same interests with him/her, to form a new IP ( something similar to a company). And thanks to the system, The unbalance between life and work will be replaced by the balance between body and mind. (DESIGNER) Designers’ working activities in this PLAN-NET are divided into two layers: the design of physical space and virtual space; the design of human related space and nonhuman space. In the PLAN-NET architecture, we intrigue the creative thinking of designers by switching between physical space and virtual space, human related space and nonhuman space. (WORK SPACE OF DESIGNER) Each designer will have his/her own planet, she/he can start her/his work as long as she/he enters the cabin of PLAN-NET.

OFFICESCAPE

“Officescape is an Integration of Office and Landscape with an Innovative Working Mode” Facing the prominent Nujiang Road at the entry of the Sanyuan Zhenhe Technology Village, the North Design Union Headquarters is destined to be a focal point of the district. The undulating curtain wall facade welcomes designers, researchers, and visitors in the city. The new headquarters is not only eye-catching in its form but also setting new standards for workplace under the visions of the organization - Innovation, Integration, and Mutual Benefit. A leading and innovative office in 2020 should not be a machine to produce and a humane workplace to devise. Back in the 1970s, there were high demands for physical entities. Mass production and efficiency-driven working approaches deprived humanity in the working environment. Through the division of labor, people were treated only as capital inputs to produce. In each factory, working units are segregated by opaque walls and interactions were hardly found. Thanks to the advancement in technology, physical entities of high quantity but not high quality can no longer create value as much as innovative intellectual entities. Office space should, therefore, become opener and more flexible to foster communication and collaboration between working units to curate creativity. In Officescape, the boundaries between working forces have vanished. Working forces are not segregated but integrated as a whole/ Spaces are mostly defined by zoning on an open plan. Steps and ramps create an artificial landscape with slightly variating heights and soft transition between zones. The freedom in zoning allows multi-tenant occupancy, cross-organizational communication, activity-based work stations, shared facilities, and dynamic office layouts. The new office deliberately has no corridors and creates a continuous flow without dead ends. The staff has a higher authority to pick their working place in the open workplace. Facilities are scattered in the building and are shared by all working units. The close link between the different departments located here is intended to facilitate a lively exchange of knowledge, thereby enriching the working day of all employees. The production line and the public are crossed linked. A large portion of sharing space on the upper floor for a meeting, working, negotiating and training allow the headquarters to cooperate among industries, universities, and research institutes. The general public is also welcome to join the exhibitions and lectures on the ground floor. New technology products can be introduced to the public and the public can give feedback to the company. The flexible space allows programmes with a high variety of space, which mutually benefits the organization and the industry as a whole.

Flowing inspiration
YBN-A-G105716

The theme of this design is "Freedom, Openes, Imagination". It is aimed at providing users of design industry with "places of inspiration" with different indoor spaces, light and shadow that changes over time, the use of colors indoor, exhibition areas and space for the storage of books throughout the whole area. The idea of the shape of building block comes from the shape of rivers in Tianjin city that represents the flowing of imagination in culture of Tianjin. In addition to the traditional office space, there are also dining space, library space, displaying space, fitness and entertainment space and a large number of communication space, which combines into a comprehensive office based on the concept of "micro-city public area".

Infinite City 纳城
YBN-A-G105765

The Infinite City builds itself the shared home to the North Design Union (NDU) members against the backdrop of sharing-economy. The design aims to promote the interaction of ideas between individuals, the exchange of knowledge between groups within and beyond workspace through the concept of sharing. A PLACE OF SPACE-SHARING The Infinite City proposes a new office prototype, which combines the advantage of high-density vertical stacking found in modern skyscrapers and the advantage of enormous flexible open plan found in tech-company HQs. To maximize the sharing open plan on such limited site, we fold the giant infinite open plan into a looped ramp. As it blurs the boundary of the floors, the whole building becomes an giant flat town which boosts the spatial efficiency, adapts borderless space-sharing and even additional constructions within the system under this logic. The economic advantages are obvious to these more cost-effective space-sharing compared with isolatedly equipped offices. By accommodating all basic office-relevant events on the open ramping floors, all members are encouraged to share the spaces, office common resources including computers, desks, chairs, leisure space, library, conference facilities and utilities. Enclosed rooms ranging from private office and confidential meeting room, research room to studio and fabrication shop are also provided for shared use upon reservation. We also designed an across-building sliding ceiling mechanism to make sharing easier and faster. A PLACE OF MIND-SHARING The Infinite City integrates fragmented organizations into a shared platform. First, the design provides a spectrum of programs to suit the needs of different users from different industries. Then the giant sloping loop of the building glues them altogether. On this loop we programmed ample spaces for people to collaborate, to interact and even to play. And the slope itself encourages wandering and travelling. All this allows for more exposure to different people and ideas, therefore enhancing the coincidence for collaboration, creativity and productivity. Researchers, designers, analyst, consultant, manufacture and media -- members from different industries and walks of life help each other’s business thrive by sharing knowledges, services and even ideas. A PLACE SHARES WITH CITY The Infinite City shares with the city in both urban and landscape perspective. The landscape around the building is designed to match the sloping character of the architecture, so that the entire building can be seen as a continuation of the urban green park to the west. The west façade design embraces the park by maximizing views and direct access. A passageway bypassing the building circulation brings people to the inner courtyard even if the building is closed, incorporating the courtyard with the city park system. The sunken plaza to the east responds to the dense urban tissues abutting the east and south side of the site, providing a place to gather for citizens. The spatial approachability lures visitors to explore the open areas and public events within and around the building, positively would bring in energy to the society and helps the Union’s media promotion. Lastly, the design speaks to the industrial heritage of the site with simple cuboidal envelope and the exposed ceiling with mechanical pendant. In conclusion, the Infinite City provides infinite possibilities for the sharing of all kind of minds, partnerships with local or even global business, and broader media exposure as the integration of North Design Union. Innovative integration as the infinite town is, it contributes to the idea of comprehensive sharing and finally leads path to infinite mutual benefits.

LOCAL STREET
YBN-A-G106474

千里之行,始于足下  Lao Tzu said, «A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step». Space + communication = Innovation. The building is structured as a city, the space is specifically created for motion. The street – the way THOUSAND MILES is the main channel of the city and the nerve center of the physical space. Everything is connected with the street where there are the most significant ideas come out. The street is the perfect transiting area for offices attendants, to gather or meet unexpectedly, creating emulation and wellness which is key in an innovative process. In this building, the open environment is maintaining visual contact to a large extent, even between the floors. Thus increasing interaction between co-workers.

过去的;现在的;未来的? In the past; Now; In the future? 过去的。办公空间往往是规矩的,功能分区很明确,各个功能分区之间被交通空间联系。这样的办公场所容易给人单调,乏味的感受,同时也缺乏交流的场所,不能够满足现代办公对于交流和共享的要求。 In the past. Office space is often formal, functional partition is very clear, between each functional partition is connected by traffic space. Such office space is easy to give a person monotonous, boring feeling, at the same time, it also lacks a place for communication, which can not meet the requirements of modern office for communication and sharing. 现在的。例如谷歌、Facebook等公司,办公空间越来越开放,以适应更多变化的办公方式的需求。但是自由和个性的同时也给别人带来了许多打扰,导致工作效率的下降,甚至无法安静的工作,所以,相对独立的空间依然很有必要。 Now. Companies such as Google and Facebook are opening their office Spaces more and more to accommodate the need for more and more changing ways of working. But freedom and personality also bring a lot of bother to others, resulting in the decline of work efficiency, and even can not work quietly, so, relatively independent space is still necessary. 未来的?没有人会知道未来是什么样子。作为设计师,我们往往很有个性,往往特立独行,但同时,我们又必须团队合作,互相交流;作为设计师,我们希望有属于自己的空间,这里的一切都是“我”的色彩;作为设计师,我们希望能够灵活的从“个性”切换到“合作”,在那突然的灵感还没有被忘记之前; In the future? No one knows what the future holds. As designers, we tend to be very individual, often maverick, but at the same time, we have to work as a team, communicate with each other; As designers, we hope to have our own space. Everything here is the color of "me". As designers, we want to be able to switch flexibly from "personality" to "collaboration" before the sudden inspiration is forgotten. 基于以上,我们做了本次的设计。 Based on the above, we made this design. 立体的空间能够在满足个性的同时,零距离的切换到交流与合作之中;更多小的空间可以适应信息时代远程“空间穿越”的交流与合作;我们准备了许许多多不被打扰的角落,如果你喜欢独自的思考;我们准备了开阔的观景平台,如果你喜欢那四季变换的晚霞;我们准备了空中的院落,如果你对传统的文化钟爱有加;我们准备了丰富的生活场所,因为好的设计师总是热爱生活;我们准备了可以随时变化的空间,因为设计本身就是不段的去拥抱变化…… Three-dimensional space can meet the personality at the same time, zero distance to switch to communication and cooperation; More small space can adapt to the communication and cooperation of remote "space crossing" in the information age; We have prepared a lot of uninterrupted corners, if you like to think alone; We have prepared an open viewing platform, if you like the changing sunset clouds; We have a courtyard in the sky, if you love traditional culture; We have prepared rich living places, because good designers always love life; We are ready to change the space at any time, because the design itself is constantly to embrace change...

过去的;现在的;未来的? In the past; Now; In the future? 过去的。办公空间往往是规矩的,功能分区很明确,各个功能分区之间被交通空间联系。这样的办公场所容易给人单调,乏味的感受,同时也缺乏交流的场所,不能够满足现代办公对于交流和共享的要求。 In the past. Office space is often formal, functional partition is very clear, between each functional partition is connected by traffic space. Such office space is easy to give a person monotonous, boring feeling, at the same time, it also lacks a place for communication, which can not meet the requirements of modern office for communication and sharing. 现在的。例如谷歌、Facebook等公司,办公空间越来越开放,以适应更多变化的办公方式的需求。但是自由和个性的同时也给别人带来了许多打扰,导致工作效率的下降,甚至无法安静的工作,所以,相对独立的空间依然很有必要。 Now. Companies such as Google and Facebook are opening their office Spaces more and more to accommodate the need for more and more changing ways of working. But freedom and personality also bring a lot of bother to others, resulting in the decline of work efficiency, and even can not work quietly, so, relatively independent space is still necessary. 未来的?没有人会知道未来是什么样子。作为设计师,我们往往很有个性,往往特立独行,但同时,我们又必须团队合作,互相交流;作为设计师,我们希望有属于自己的空间,这里的一切都是“我”的色彩;作为设计师,我们希望能够灵活的从“个性”切换到“合作”,在那突然的灵感还没有被忘记之前; In the future? No one knows what the future holds. As designers, we tend to be very individual, often maverick, but at the same time, we have to work as a team, communicate with each other; As designers, we hope to have our own space. Everything here is the color of "me". As designers, we want to be able to switch flexibly from "personality" to "collaboration" before the sudden inspiration is forgotten. 基于以上,我们做了本次的设计。 Based on the above, we made this design. 立体的空间能够在满足个性的同时,零距离的切换到交流与合作之中;更多小的空间可以适应信息时代远程“空间穿越”的交流与合作;我们准备了许许多多不被打扰的角落,如果你喜欢独自的思考;我们准备了开阔的观景平台,如果你喜欢那四季变换的晚霞;我们准备了空中的院落,如果你对传统的文化钟爱有加;我们准备了丰富的生活场所,因为好的设计师总是热爱生活;我们准备了可以随时变化的空间,因为设计本身就是不段的去拥抱变化…… Three-dimensional space can meet the personality at the same time, zero distance to switch to communication and cooperation; More small space can adapt to the communication and cooperation of remote "space crossing" in the information age; We have prepared a lot of uninterrupted corners, if you like to think alone; We have prepared an open viewing platform, if you like the changing sunset clouds; We have a courtyard in the sky, if you love traditional culture; We have prepared rich living places, because good designers always love life; We are ready to change the space at any time, because the design itself is constantly to embrace change...

Design Concept 设计理念 Yangshan Mountain is the inspiration for the concept of this building. The 2 building tops signifies mountain shape as rooftops. The gradiation of colours from red top to black bottom signifies sunrise colour reflecting on the mountain while the black top to red bottom signifies sunset colour. 这栋房子的设计灵感来自于阳山。房子的两个屋顶被设计成了象征山的形状的造型。从红色的顶部到黑色的底部,其颜色的渐变象征着山上反衬出的日落的颜色。 This project basically consist of two buildings and Building 1 is facing south and Building 2 is facing north which has the view of Yangshan Mountain. The two buildings are inter-connected with 2 bridges on each floor for easy access on both ends and also every floors. 该项目由两栋建筑组成,一号楼朝南,二号楼朝北,并能够看到阳山的景色。两栋建筑由两座桥相互连接,使得每层楼之间都能轻易通行。 Building 1 mainly consist of Classrooms and Administration while Building 2 has Audio Visual area and Exhibition area incorporated inside. The main entrance comes from the east and west of the building and on the east side, there is near 2 subway stations nearby and the main traffic comes from the east road. 一楼主要由教室和办公室组成, 而二楼则设有视听区和展览区。主入口位于建筑的东部和西部,东侧附近有两个地铁站,主要的交通大部分都来自于东部。 Building concept, spatial flow and material used 建筑理念,空间流动和所使用的材料 The façade is made of terracotta, it plays a tremendous part in a building’s energy footprint . The whole building mainly consist of terracotta blocks for first layer to decorate the facade of the building. The internal wall which is the second layer is in glass and the all structure in concrete blocks with iron infrastructure. 建筑外墙由陶土制成,在建筑的能源足迹中起着巨大的作用。 整栋建筑的第一层外墙主要由陶土组成,其目的之一是装饰建筑物外墙。作为第二层的内墙则是玻璃,所有的结构都有混凝土组成。 Benefits of terracotta for bio-climatic design:- 陶土用于生物气候设计的好处: • Environmentally friendly – It is 100% natural and recyclable. Because of its production process, it is characterized by being environmental-friendly and with low energy consumption. • 环保—陶土是百分百纯天然并可以回收利用的材料。鉴于其特殊的生产过程,其特点是环保而且低能耗。 There will also be planting area for Plant-e , the latest revolutionary technology generate natural power with water and plants. Plant-e develops products that generate electricity with living plants. While the plant is growing, electricity is produced. With Plant-e technology, natural areas can be conserved, and the production of food could be combined with production of electricity. 我们还将设置Plant-e种植区。Plant-e是一种最新的、具有革命性的技术,它可以利用水和植物产生自然能源。Plant-e开发的产品可以通过活植物发电。植物在生长的同时,电力也产生了。通过Plant-e技术,自然区域可以得到保护,并且可以将食物的生产与电力的生产相结合。 Level B1 - consist of Gymnasium and Dining Area where organic food is served. B1层,有健身房和用餐区组成,餐厅将供应有机食物。 Level 1 - this is the public space for Common Area where half of the space is planted 6 particular air- purifying plants all around to purify the air for the building from the pollution and dust and therefore provide more oxygen for inhabitants. With Beijing 120km nearby and Tianjin as an industrial area, the whole building will need natural air purifier. This level also hosts Lecture Hall / Classrooms and Exhibition Halls as well. Besides these areas, there are also AV Rooms and Directional Area. 一楼是公共区域,其中一半的空间将会被6个特定的具有空气净化功能的植物所覆盖,以达到净化建筑物空气污染及灰尘,为居住者提供更多氧气的目的。我们距离北京只有120公里,天津又是一个工业发达的城市,整栋建筑需要天然的空气净化器。这一层还设有讲座厅、教室和展览厅。除了上述这些区域,一楼还有视听室和导向区。 Level 2 - consists of open offices where there are Reading Rooms, Resting Rooms and Meeting Rooms for internal staffs. This area is built with wooden loft for offices in between the floor and ceiling space as the ceiling height is very high. 二楼是开放式办公室,并未内部员工设置了阅览室、休息室和会议室。该区域由木质阁楼组成,位于地板和天花板之间,因为天花板的高度很高。 Level 3 - consists of independent and private office area where outsiders can rent the office spaces. The area also has the same areas as Level 2 for Reading Rooms, Resting Rooms and Meeting Rooms as well as loft space for more offices. 3楼由独立和私人办公区域组成,这些区域也可以外租。该区域还拥有阅览室、休息室和会议室,还有和二楼一样的阁楼,也可以用作办公室。 Level 4 - consist of Vegetable Garden Terrace, Research space and solar panels space. This is the area where the Plant-e technology will be cultivated to generate power to the building. Besides having the Plant-e technology, there will be a garden for "home-grown" vegetables for restaurant at the basement to serve organic food to the inhabitants or they are also encourage to cultivate the habit of growing their own vegetables. Air-purifying plants will also be grown on the rooftop to purify the air pollutants. The Research Area will also be placed here together with the solar system panels where the solar power can be captured easily to generate electricity for the buildings. 四楼包含了蔬菜花园露台,研究区域和太阳能板放置区。这里也是Plant-e技术发挥其作用的区域。除了Plant-e技术之外,这里也是一个自种自食,自给自足的区域。这里可以种植蔬菜,为楼下的餐厅提供有机食品。居民们也可以自己来这里动手,培养自己种植蔬菜的习惯。屋顶上还将种植具有空气净化作用的植物,以便用来净化污染。 研究区域和太阳能板也被安置在了这个区域,可以轻松捕获太阳能,为建筑物发电。
