这栋夺人眼球的梦幻建筑是位于法国巴黎郊区的长颈鹿儿童看护中心。儿童看护中心外观的白色波纹板是野生动物雕塑的最佳背景,温和的长颈鹿穿过建筑,白极熊试图爬上另一层楼,瓢虫想从外墙翻进院子里。

这栋拥有60个床位的儿童中心被评选为绿色建筑。

建筑附近有让努维尔设计的Horizons塔楼和其它高层建筑形成的特色城市风貌。三层的建筑呈退台式,与周围环境契合,同时形成5个院子,实现了第五立面。其中一个院子位于长颈鹿的身下,三个在屋顶下,另外一个在尽端的地面上。

穿插在建筑之中的野生动物雕塑让建筑改变了身份和性质,成为都市风景线上一个梦幻的叙事者。我们经过长颈鹿的腿部进入建筑中,在这些和蔼可亲的动物雕塑中产生有趣好玩的幻想,生活因此变得诗意和美好。

The Giraffe childcare center is located in the C1 block of the Seguin Rives de Seine district in Boulogne-Billancourt, a suburban area of Paris. The program houses a 60 bed childcare center and 20 bed day nursery. The building has been awarded the green “zéro Energie Effinergie” label. This public building is located next to Jean Nouvel’s “Horizons” tower, at the junction between the “Vieux pont de Sèvres” neighbourhood, built in the 70’s, and the new area called “ le Trapèze”. The High density of this area gives it a rugged skyline. To be integrated into this particular urban landscape, the building is composed of three tiers. Each of the south-facing playgrounds is in continuity with the interior spaces and is identified by a unique concrete animal sculpture. Viewed from the surrounding towers, the regular sequence of terraces offers a real « fifth facade » to the neighbourhood.

The facades of the building are made out of white corrugated iron that provides a minimal background to the wild animal sculptures. The idea is to animate the urban landscape by using a child’s imagination. The wild animals appropriate the space; a giraffe appears to be peacefully eating the leaves of the trees from the neighbouring park, a polar bear tries to clamber up the steps, while a family of ladybirds climbs the façade in an attempt to reach the interior patio.

Architecture turns into storytelling. The building changes its identity and becomes a landscape in its own right, a metaphor for the urban jungle. The animals and the trees link the building to nature and motion. The giraffe has become a banner for the nursery since it is visible in the surrounding area from all angles. We walk through its legs to enter the building. Through their affable form, the lively animal sculptures invite us to live our dreams. These playful and dreamlike sculptures introduce a little bit of fantasy into the routine life of the town in order to inspire our lives with a bit of poetry.
