近日,由ACHISEARCH.GR发起的“大流行病时代下的建筑”(Pandemic Architecture International Ideas Competition)国际概念竞赛结果揭晓。由来自中国、目前在美国波士顿从事景观与城市设计工作的设计师蔡淦东和蔡明洁完成的提案——“大纽约,小插件”(Big Apple, Small PLUG-IN)从全球60多个国家和地区的400份提案中脱颖而出,荣获竞赛最高奖。全球疫情的爆发给世界公共生活和日常带来了巨大影响。主办方ACHISEARCH.GR组织该次“大流行病时代下的建筑”国际概念竞赛,意在构建一个“智库”平台,向全球设计师和创意者征询关于疫情下和后疫情时代的日常生活工作空间、公共空间以及出行模式的近未来方案。(竞赛介绍选自ACHISEARCH.GR官方网站)

ACHISEARCH.GR has announced the results of the Pandemic Architecture International Ideas Competition recently. The proposal “Big Apple, Small Plug-In” created by Gandong Cai and Mingjie Cai, was selected out of over 400 fascinating ideas from more than 60 countries around the world, to be the top winners of the Pandemic Architecture Competition. Pandemic Realities addresses the spatial configuration, modes of living, and notions of the human body engendered by disruptive public health crises such as Covid-19 outbreak. As part of this new reality, Archisearch.gr organized the International Ideas Competition Pandemic Architecture aspiring to create a think tank, looking for ideas from the architectural and design community about the future of living spaces, the workspace, the public space and the tourism industry. As the world faces new globalized health threats, there is a need to design the home / the city of tomorrow, living in times whereas pandemics and viruses will be part of our everyday life.

设计问题
Questions

方案以新冠疫情肆虐严重的纽约市为思考场地,对公共空间在后疫情时代下的使用模式提出思考:

是否人人享有进入公共空间的权力,即便在新常态的大背景下?

我们能否重定义公共空间,并提倡新的公共行为模式?

纽约面临的大问题能否凭借微介入解决?

The proposal firstly questions the daily use mode of public space in NYC during post-pandemic era:

Is it a right for everyone to access public space, even in the new normal period?

Can we redefine the public space, and suggest a new public behavioral mode?

Can New York’s big problem be solved by small intervention?

概述
Overall Statement

项目描绘了一个虚构小说式的未来图景:疫情高峰过去后的纽约进入新常态阶段,城市公共空间重新向公众开放,一个名为“社交插件计划”(Social Plug-In Plan)的政策正式颁布。在这样一个激进却又逼真的构想环境中,在一场关于公共空间使用权利与保持社交安全距离义务的角力之下,纽约率先探索出了一种新时代之下公共空间的使用策略。

This project fabricates a fictional context of near future when New York’s public space is re-opened and a citywide policy of Social Plug-in Plan is implemented. It delineates a radical yet possible scenario of tomorrow, in which personal freedom to access public space and responsibility to keep safe distance are compromised under a hypothesized new normal.

设计概念
Design Concepts

2020年9月1日,美国纽约。没有人设想过作为全球中心的纽约市——人人向往的“大苹果”(the Big Apple)——也成为了新冠疫情的中心。疫情爆发半年后,纽约市政府于今日颁布了新的政策:“社交插件计划(简称SPI计划)”。该计划由三部分组成:SPI移动设备、SPI工具包、以及SPI地图。

September1st, 2020, New York. No one ever imagined that the Big Apple–the center of the world–has become the center of the pandemic. Half-year after the outbreak, the city government announced a new policy today: The Social Plug-In Plan (SPI Plan). The plan includes three parts: the SPI device, tool kits, and map.

SPI设备 | SPI Device

公共空间的重新开放不意味着社交安全距离不需要被遵守。SPI移动设备是一个可随身携带,并带有AR技术的社交领地(Social Territory)投影工具,可在使用公共空间时,将安全活动范围投影到地面上。设备可通过输入人数和活动内容决定社交领地的半径,从而投影出合适大小的活动范围。

The re-opening of the public space does not mean the relief of social distancing. This portable small device with new AR technology can project a Social Territory–the safe activity space–on ground when you are enjoying public life. The radius of the space is determined by the number of people in your group in order to make sure you are safe and have enough space for activities.

SPI工具包 | SPI Tool Kits

公共空间虽部分开放,仍有许多人们过往习以为常的公共活动受到限制,例如去电影院在密闭空间中看一场电影,参加一场万人演唱会,或到人流涌动的城市地标参观。SPI工具包是用于保障使用者安全并提高公共空间使用体验的一组工具,它可以自行选择部件并组装,给予纽约客在新常态之下重建理想公共生活的机会。

While public spaces are conditionally opened, many public activities are still unavailable such as go to watch a movie, attend a concert or visit a popular city landmark. The SPI Tool Kits is a set of items to enhance the experience during the time spending in the park. It gives freedom to every New Yorker to rebuild their ideal public life under the new normal.

SPI地图 | SPI Map

在带上自己的SPI移动设备和工具包前往公共空间之前,空间使用者需要提前在一个名为SPI MAP的地图应用程序上注册并预约自己想要前往的目的地以及时间。为保证社交安全距离,纽约开放的公共空间将实行限时限流,以保证每个人都有机会享用资源。每天可预约的名额都会在纽约的各个社区中发布,名额的多少与公共空间的可使用面积、服务社区人口以及可达性等信息相关。居民只需要在应用上找到对应信息并完成预约,即可在选定的时间内前往安全的场所享受公共生活。

Before bringing the SPI device and tool kits to a specific park, people need to sign-up a slot in an APP called the SPI Map. Slots are released every day to all neighborhoods in the city according to the population and distance to nearby public space. All information of available parks, times, and conditions are shown on the map so people can decide time and location to go out for public life.

方案以社区公园、城市公园与风景公园三种不同尺度与使用特点的公共空间为例,介绍SPI计划如何重定义后疫情时代纽约公共空间的使用策略。社区公园是城市当中最方便到达的空间,每家每户的后院或屋顶都可以为居民提供合适的公共活动场所。这些遍布城市的小型空间在新政策之下被有效利用,极大地缓解了对公共空间需求的压力。

The project takes examples of three public space typologies-community park, civic park and scenic park-to explain the SPI plan’s strategy in addressing the post-pandemic public realm in New York. The most convenient way to enjoy public life is to utilize every backyard and roof garden. If all these community parks can be used under certain conditions, they can serve a great function of providing public space and mitigate the pressure of civic open space.

城市公园过往是城市最热闹的地方,纽约的布莱恩公园被认为是世界上最繁忙的公园之一。在部分公共设施尚未开放之时,城市公园将承载起比以往更多元的城市活动与公共事件。无法前往电影院的年轻人可带上自己的SPI工具,在布莱恩公园预约好的场地上临时组装起一个简易的双人电影院,享受在公共空间里观影的新体验。

New York Bryant Park is the busiest public open space in the world before the outbreak of the Covid-19. During the pandemic it was unoccupied for a long time and now the park is reopened under the SPI Plan and serves as the alternative space for public events such as watching movie. People can use their SPI tool-kit to install a temporary cinema in the park to have a new experience in public space.

除了紧凑高密度的曼哈顿岛外,纽约还拥有一批风景优美的名胜公园,它们同样将成为重要的城市公共空间。在参观自由女神像这类人流密集的活动仍被禁止的新常态之下,总督岛公园的滨水空间可规划成一系列独立的浮台,成为具有安全距离的城市观景台。

There are lots of public activities in New York that are restricted under the new context, including the Statue of Liberty. The Scenic Park in the Governors Island is serving a new function of providing the best location for sightseeing during the new normal period. The floating pads along the island’s coastal area become the safe platform for watching the statue.

幸存者日 | The Survivor Day

在方案设定的虚构情节中,未来每年的3月14日被定为“城市幸存者日”——而这一天正好是纽约官方公布第一例新冠病人病逝的日子。纪念日的制定不仅仅是为了缅怀因疫情离开人世的纽约人,更是为了纪念作为幸存者留下来的“我们”:我们或对病人施以援手,或相互传递分享重要信息,或仅仅是居家隔离,阻断病毒传播的风险。所有纽约的幸存者都参与了与新冠病毒的战斗,都应是这座城市需要被铭记的英雄!

因此,幸存者日是一个大家前往纽约中央公园纪念的日子——纽约中央公园——一处在Frederick Law Olmsted 和Calvert Vaux设计之初就致力于为纽约公众提供健康的户外空间;而在疫情肆虐之际,充当了纽约市最大的救治重症病患的露天战地医院;在这个特别的城市幸存者日,每个参与纪念活动的纽约市民通过预约,携带好自己的SPI设备,相聚于此,用设备自带的灯光,在各自预订的“社交领地”上以照亮夜空的方式,使这一天的中央公园成为纽约市有史以来最大的纪念地(Memorial Park)。

We propose Mar 14th to be the Survivor Day–the date New York officially reported its first death due to Covid-19. The establishment of this day is not only in purpose to memorize those who left us, but also because all of us who survived from the pandemic war are HERO fighting with the virus by healing others, or sharing information, or just staying at home to reduce the risk of infection.

We deserve a date to celebrate and memorize in Central Park, the largest open space in the city designed by Olmsted and Calvert Vaux in the purpose of providing place for public health in its origin. The park is transformed temporarily during the pandemic into the largest open-air hospital, in order to save the lives of the severely infected citizens. Now we are getting together-of course with SPI device-in Central Park on the Survivor Day, staying in the social territories we reserved beforehand, lighting up the whole space, and turning the park into the biggest memorial in the city.
