伦敦主教教区通过Genesis实现了其发展圣哥伦巴社区的愿景:Genesis是一艘宽梁运河船,并带有一个伸缩的屋顶。Genesis由伦敦建筑事务所Denizen Works担任设计,它被构想为一个可移动的集会空间,停泊在伊丽莎白女王奥林匹克公园Here East创意区旁边的Lee Navigation河岸。在前往其他运河沿岸的社区之前,它将在这里停留3-5年的时间。

The Diocese of London has realised its vision for the St Columba East London community, with Genesis: a new, wide-beam canal boat crowned with an innovative pop-up roof, designed by London-based architects Denizen Works. The barge, commissioned as a mobile assembly space, is moored on the River Lee Navigation alongside Here East at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, where it will remain for three to five years before reaching other canalside communities.

Genesis是在与Turks Shipyard造船厂和造船工程师Tony Tucker的密切合作下开发并建造的,它肩负着将东伦敦运河周围不断发展的社区相互连接起来的现代使命。船只的流动性和灵活性能够保证其为关键性的重建场地(包括Sweetwater、Eastwick和Hackney Wick)带来长期的积极影响。除了作为交通空间外,驳船的内部空间也经过了特别设计,以容纳广泛的社区活动和服务,包括亲子活动、普拉提课和艺术课、不同宗教的庆祝活动、午餐和晚餐俱乐部、音乐表演、员工培训、工作坊和咨询会等。

Developed in close collaboration with Turks Shipyard and naval architect Tony Tucker, Genesis is conceived as a modern-day mission, developing links with growing communities living around the canal in East London over the next 25 years. Its mobility and flexibility of programme will ensure lasting benefits to the diverse neighbourhoods at key regeneration sites, which include Sweetwater, Eastwick and Hackney Wick. As well as serving as a space for a church, the barge is designed with a bespoke and adaptable interior to accommodate a wide range of community activities and services, including parent and toddler groups, pilates classes and art classes, interfaith celebrations, lunch and supper clubs, live music, employment training, support workshops and counselling.

Genesis以《圣经》第一卷为名,暗含了有关创世纪的讲述。这艘驳船首先服务于Stepney主教区内的两个现有教区St Paul Old Ford和St Mary of Eton,并将在未来接触到其他新的社区,并逐步促进伦敦主教教区内其他教区之间的连接。新兴的东圣哥伦巴区(St Columba East)将由2019年6月上任的Dave Pilkington主教领导——他曾经于Genesis的前身“Elsdale II”临时船只上服务。

Christened Genesis after the first book of the Bible, and alluding to a narrative of creation, the boat will initially serve the two existing parishes of St Paul Old Ford and St Mary of Eton in the Stepney Episcopal Area, with the ambition to reach new communities and bridge shifting parishes in the areas of the Diocese of London undergoing urban growth or change. Named St Columba East, this new community will be led by the Reverend Dave Pilkington, who was ordained in June 2019 and served on Genesis’ predecessor, the interim vessel Elsdale II.

Denizen Works提出的创新方案以风琴的风箱为灵感,为驳船赋予了一个富有动感的屋顶。该屋顶由半透明的帆布构成,沿边缘安装了LED灯,并由液压油缸驱动。在屋顶降下时,驳船得以凭借小巧的身姿从桥梁下方通过;而在屋顶完全抬起时,又充盈为一座明亮的灯塔,吸引着人们观察和走近。通过触摸按钮,屋顶最多能够上升至3.6米的高度,创造出一个向所有人开放的、富有戏剧性的内部环境。

The design for Genesis features a kinetic roof inspired by organ bellows

Denizen Works’ innovative design features a kinetic roof inspired by organ bellows. It has been crafted from concertinaed, translucent sailcloth, and is lined with LED lights and powered by hydraulic rams. When fully raised, the roof will transform the barge from compact and low-lying, allowing it to pass beneath bridges, expanding into an illuminated beacon designed to capture attention and attract footfall to the mission. Operated by the touch of a button, in its raised position it increases the head height of the barge to 3.6m at its highest point, creating a dramatic interior which is accessible to all.

上船处设置在船的中部,靠船尾的一侧是厨房、办公室和洗手间等服务设施;另一侧是主集会空间,轻质胶合板墙和绿色油毡地面带来优雅和平滑无缝的感觉,在可动态的屋顶下形成一个可供40人就座的宽阔集会场地(船静止时可容纳60名乘客)。

The floating hub is boarded midship; on one side of the entrance is the main assembly space, with services (kitchen, office and toilet) towards the rear of the barge. Inside, Denizen Works has created an elegant and seamless interior of light plywood walls and green linoleum floor. The expansive assembly space under the kinetic roof is designed to take a capacity of 40 people seated and up to 60 passengers when stationary.

墙壁边缘设有固定式的Valchromat长椅,同时结合了储物的功能。航海风格的舱壁灯营造出舒适温馨的氛围。家具由当地公司Plyco设计,包括定制的胶合板坐凳和可折叠桌子,可用于公共活动和服务。Denizen Works还特别为教堂设计了圣坛,其多面的形状与船头相呼应,独特的装配式设计使其可以折叠为一个扁平的结构,非常便于存放。

It has built-in Valchromat benches providing seating and storage along the perimeter of the room, and is fitted with marine- style bulkhead lights to create a cosy atmosphere. The furniture, designed by local design company Plyco, includes custom-designed plywood stools and foldable tables for use at public events and services. An altar designed by Denizen Works featuring an angled-front face like the prow of a boat has also been fabricated, and is designed to fold down into a flat pack for easy storage.

用于缝合帆布的针脚图案被作为一个主题应用到整个设计当中,并体现于室内空间的诸多细节,包括窗户的铝制纱窗、厨房的瓷砖图案以及定制家具的腿部结构等。除此之外,这一主题也出现在船的外部:当地的标识制作者将这一图案画在了屋顶的表面。

The sail stitching used on the bellows has been applied as a motif throughout the design and is carried through to a number of interior details, including aluminium screens to the windows, the design of which is inspired by rood screens; the pattern of the tiling in the kitchen; and in the form of the legs of the bespoke furniture. The motif is repeated externally in a frieze painted by a local signwriter that wraps the face of the kinetic roof.

Genesis的灵活设计使其既能容纳不同类型的活动,又能供私人或当地学校使用,从而凭借自给自足的特征来更好地为社区服务。

Denizen Works主创建筑师Murray Kerr表示:“该项目展示了我们在实践中最擅长的部分:集众家之所长,打造富有创意和乐趣的设计解决方案。作为一个多用途的宗教性社区项目,Genesis将成为我们思考的第一步,即如何持续地为不断发展并脱离传统区域和建筑类型的社区提供服务。最为重要的是,该项目还向我们展示了在紧密的合作下,勇于突破的客户、激动人心的设计任务和充满雄心壮志的设计团队能够取得怎样的成就。”

Designed with flexibility to accommodate an array of activities, Genesis will also be available for private hire and for use by local schools, to ensure that it is a self-sustaining asset to the communities it serves.

Murray Kerr, Denizen Works: “The project showcases what we think our practice is best at: providing innovative and joyful design solutions by drawing on the skills of a close network of collaborators. As a mixed-use faith and community project, we feel the boat could be a first step in our thinking about how communities can continue to be served as they grow and move away from traditional locations and building types. Most of all, the project demonstrates what can be achieved when a brave client with an exciting brief believes in an ambitious design team.”

伦敦主教萨拉·穆拉利夫人表示:“Genesis的交付标志着实现伦敦东部社区振兴和创造性发展的4年伟大计划的完成。而Genesis的旅程才刚刚开始,以伊丽莎白女王奥林匹克为起点,它将在未来的几年中沿着东伦敦的运河移动,在这座多元且多变的城市中为充满活力的宗教发展起到积极的促进作用。”

The Bishop of London, the Rt Rev and Rt Hon Dame Sarah Mullally DBE, said: “The delivery of the vessel marks the completion of an ambitious four-year project to create a unique resource that will inspire new and creative ministry in communities throughout East London. It is only the beginning for the vessel, Genesis, which starts its journey in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park but will move along the canals of East London in the years to come, inspiring dynamic religious growth across this diverse and ever-changing city. ”

Dave Pilkington主教表示:“Genesis所处的Lee Navigation河岸地区正处于绝佳的发展时期,在Hackney Wick和Fish Island承担了一系列变化的情况下,我们必须不断寻求帮助建立社区的方法。因此,能够向人们宣布东圣哥伦巴区不断壮大的事实,我感到无比的喜悦。随着Genesis项目的落成,如今我们拥有了一个能够为我们的行动、反省和沉思提供支持的场所,这使我们得以继续期待下一个阶段的发展。在项目交付之后,我们将在其正式开放之前做好必要的风险管理和保护措施。我们将以谨慎负责的态度来完成这项工作。

The Rev Dave Pilkington said: “The sight of Genesis on the banks of the River Lee Navigation is fantastic. With so many changes happening in Hackney Wick and Fish Island, we must constantly seek ways to help build community, so I am pleased to report that St Columba East is a community going from strength to strength. With Genesis now in situ we can look forward to the next phase of growth, now with a space to support our desire for action, reflection and contemplation. Despite the milestone of delivery being met, current circumstances require that we take the necessary steps to manage risk and protect people before opening our doors. We will undertake this with the careful consideration it requires.”
