项目背景
PROJECT DESCRIPTION

当代中国,发展急促,城邦之间,只争朝夕,不让彼此。城市过于快速发展,公路网络不断向乡村扩张,路权更多地服务于机动车的行驶,农村生活和民风不断遭到侵蚀。本项目通过政府和建筑师的合作努力,希望打破这种中国式发展的浮躁与乏味,重新寻找旧日的村落文化与建筑痕迹,设计也力图反映当地原有自然村落的文化印记,回归朴实、简约,让简单和充满真实的本土情感成为可持续发展理念的重要组成部分。

“荷岳步行桥”是一个由政府推动的公共建筑项目,旨在为处于佛山新城的一群自然村落提供跨干线步行连接,兼备营造城市道路景观的意义。本项目以步行天桥设计为主体,并配合周边环境的景观、交通进行综合设计。荷岳路为佛山新城主轴南延区域一条东西走向的城市车行主干道;而本设计之步行天桥横跨其上。主题建筑连接道路两侧多个自然村落群组,为当地村民百姓提供安全便利的无障碍出行方式。项目建筑投影占地面积约1500平方米,最大跨度约为60米。设计结合多种无障碍设施,宽阔平缓的步级及休息平台,天然的木构与用材以当代的手法带出农村朴实、恒久的生命力。荷岳路天桥系统的建成完善了该地区的村落步行系统,是对社会责任及人文的关怀的一次颂扬,也是设计师利用建筑对风土文化与城乡融合共存的积极探索。

In recent China, the rapid development accelerates the competition among cities and thus causes the continuous extension of highway networks towards countryside, surrendering the right of way to vehicles, and invading rural life and the local lifestyle. This project is a mutual effort of government and architects, aiming to break away from the Chinese style impetuous development pattern, in order to recreate the traditional village culture and architecture footprint. The design tries to reflect the original culture of local villages, back to a simple and modest style. Such genuine sentiment can be the core of sustainability concept.

Foshan New City Village Walkway Bridge is a project of civil works and urban landscape. It focuses on footbridge design and coordinates the surrounding landscape and traffic.

Heyue Road is an east-west main artery for vehicles for Foshan New City. This project stretches across Heyue Road, connecting the surrounding villages and providing a safe, convenient and accessible way of going for local villagers. The walkway bridge covers 1,500 sqm, spanning approx 60m. The design combines various accessibility facilities, such as vertical traffic (glass-façade-lifts on both sides), wide and gentle stairs and platform. The natural wood structure and material, handled in a contemporary manner, reflects the simplicity and everlasting vigor of countryside. The completion of this footbridge optimizes the walking system of the surrounding villages, a true practice of social responsibility and human concern, and a positive exploration of architects’ effort towards local culture and customs as well as urban development.

设计理念
DESIGN CONCEPT STATEMENT

流年似水、岁月留痕
Time flies, ages mark

在城市化的大环境下,许多原本自然生态优美、民风雅致的村庄不断被中心城市郊区化、城镇化。许多优秀的风土文化泯灭于激烈的城市化进程中,许多旧日筑迹,流年似水,一去不返。作为建筑师和城市设计工作者,对于此情此景,特别感到令人担忧。

佛山乃中国四大名镇,地处珠三角腹地,与广州地缘相连、历史相承、文化同源。佛山实属典型之岭南古镇,鱼米之乡,河网密布,虽富饶而民风务实朴素。而本项目正正处于一个新城中轴的南延区域,四周自然村落宁静优美,岭南民居、祠堂星罗棋布。流年似水,青砖灰瓦,木门木窗,一点一滴,光影之间,在墙身和屋脊线上岁月留痕。来势汹汹的都市化巨浪似乎无可避免,如何令城镇发展与本土情感共融,启发了建筑师在新旧之间捕捉灵感。

项目采用了当代的设计手法以行云流水的流畅空间,配以古旧朴素的木材构造,营造和特显场所的本土乡村特色,保留了当地百姓居民熟悉的回忆,但瞬间又能使到这旧物载体自然融入周边城市化的洪流。

Beautiful villages are, in recent China, being forced to become urban or even part of city centre, whose distinctive nature and social customs killed by the rapid urbanization. Traditional architecture footprints vanish like flowing water. As an architect and urban designer, we shall do something.

Foshan, as one among the four famous towns in China, sitting in the centre of Pearl River delta, joins Guangzhou in geography, in history and in culture. As a typical south china ancient town, Foshan is a land of fish and rice, of rivers and streams, abundant in resources but peaceful in mind. This project is located at the south of the new city axis, surrounded by beautiful and peaceful villages, traditional Lingnan houses and ancestral halls. The blue bricks, the grey tiles, the wood gates and windows, are the memory of villagers. Time comes and goes, but left its footprint on the walls and roof ridges. However, the wave of urbanization seems inevitable. How to simultaneously accommodate urban development and local culture inspires the architect to catch the old and the new.

The architect applies contemporary design methods to realize a natural and smooth space, together with antiquated wood, to create and highlight local village culture, to maintain the familiar memory of local villages, but still gently fits in the surrounding urban texture.

设计聚焦于“本土情感”,在天桥的造型上是对周边村落之岭南传统建筑群屋檐窄巷的抽象表达,提取其折线再通过参数化的设计给予理性与逻辑,让整个天桥的天际线与周边的建筑高度融合。用材和构造上是现代技术与传统文化的邂逅,利用钢结构的灵活和可塑性来实现天桥的空间和造型,并以天然的木材刻画纯朴和永恒的质感,亦做到温和地融入在地的建筑语境,隐隐透出对自然、对本土情感怀缅之情的寄托。

The design highlights LOCAL and SOCIAL. The footbridge silhouette is in fact an abstract expression of the traditional eave from local Lingnan buildings. Contemporary parametric design adds to it rationality and logic, fitting its skyline into the local architectural context.
In materials, modern technology meets traditional culture. Steel structure, with its flexibility and plasticity, realizes the unique shape, which, covered with local timber with a simple and unadorned texture, gently blends in the surrounding architecture context, a true respect and admiration towards the local nature and culture. Meanwhile, the lighting portrays the silhouette, creating an interesting walking experience.

整体布局
Overall Layout

平面布局简洁紧凑的’U’形,其主体横跨主干道,两侧各是单边平缓宽大的梯级,以及无障碍设计的垂直电梯。对空间的剪裁,功能的排布,对材质的掌控、对桥身体量的考虑都恰如其分,最终与周边村落建筑浑然一体,达到“润物细无声”的意境。

当穿行于天桥廊道内部,可以感知其造型转折手法的运用。每一个渐变的’屋形’单元数组组合都是一种被抽象的传统民居剖,并且不断地重复出现,最终形成强烈的景深和视角引导力。与此同时,看似不动的建筑空间透过光的转折照射而被感知,形成富有趣味的步行体验空间。光不受缚于空间造型,却能刻画出空间实体的形貌,让其变得更有质感。

天桥比一般步行天桥更为宽阔,打破走道形式的枯燥无趣的感觉,为使用者在天桥上的活动提供更积极的社交可能性。嬉戏玩耍、驻足远眺、偶遇闲聊。凡此种种,拉近人与人之的间关系和活动都被允许和提倡,建筑的内在价值因此而回归到风土文化内核中人与人积极交往的精神之中。

The layout follows a simple U shape with its main body stretching across the main artery and two sides of wide and gentle stairs and accessible lifts. The cutting of space, the arrangement of functions, the control on materials, and the consideration of volume, all fits the footbridge into its surroundings, silently nourishing everything and quietly benefiting everyone.

Walking through the bridge corridor, you can feel the twisting of space. Every grading unit in the array comes from the section of a traditional Lingnan house. Such silhouette, one after another, forms a strong depth of focus. The sunlight, coming from different angles, brings dynamism to the static architecture, creating interesting walking experience. Light, non-restricted by the shape, but portrays the silhouette and reveals its texture.

This walkway, wider than most footbridges, break through the stereotype of dry and dull corridors, enabling pedestrians to walk, to play, to chat, to meet, to view, invisibly shortening the distance among people. Thus, the architecture goes back to the local nature and social culture.

价值探索
Value Exploration

作品在整体上努力体现“润物细无声”的东方人文价值。设计遵从一种以人、文化及特定场所出发的谦卑价值观和理念,是在上述要素错综复杂的基础之上为人、建筑、环境和谐并存而进行的不懈探索。作品力图在地方风土建筑的兴趣维度上,展现建筑的乡土之美;在探讨城市化议题的同时,也尽情表达一种乡村的本土情感和文化。建筑师希望通过这种对东方人文价值的坚持,在进行创造工作的过程中体现一份对历史、文化、环境和社会的责任和职业使命。

The application of sustainability design strategy can be seen in how perfect the footbridge fits into the local surrounding architectural context and environment. The selection of local materials ensures the complete expression of local nature and social culture. The utilization of prefabricated parts reduces site pollution and energy consumption, providing a healthy way of going for local villagers. The design balances economic benefit and environmental resources, and seeks a perfect solution according to different restrictions and opportunities.
