共享的反思|Reflection on “Sharing”

基于节约资源、让绿色出行回归、带来生活便捷的共享单车,在无节制的商业化运作下,从一个健康的状态变成一个怪物。它耗费了大量的工业原料、侵占掉稀缺的城市公共空间,堆放出一个又一个的 “巨型工业坟场”。面对这些非产品质量问题而被迫“退役”的共享单车,有没有比简单粗暴的回收处理更积极的办法,作为一个生活于城市的设计造物者,是否可以用自己的所能去营造一种善意的再利用?

Though born from the good intention of resources conservation, green commuting and making life more convenient, shared bicycles are becoming “monsters” under the unbridled commercial sprawl. They have consumed plenty of industrial raw materials, encroached on scarce urban public space and been dumped in horrible piles. A large number of shared bicycles, without any quality problems, have been forced to “retirement”. Do we have any better solutions to handle this problem instead of recycling them in a simple and crude manner? As a designer living in the city, I have been thinking about the possibility for friendly reuse of those abandoned bikes.

移动的儿童创客课堂|A Mobile Maker Classroom for Children

我的好朋友阿甘,专门为儿童进行创客教育,他自制了一些教学道具,要经常从办公空间搬出搬进,用一个买菜的小推车,捆绑着这些创客材料,到学校周围对孩子和家长进行解说。看到这样的状态,特别希望为他建造一件具有创客精神的小型储物车,助力他的儿童创客教育。采用废弃的共享单车、城市报废的汽车铁皮、环保板材边角料,完全可以去实现一个移动的儿童创客课堂,它一定要有想象力、趣味、生动,化城市工业垃圾为自然感、艺术性的再利用“希望”,这就是共享瓢虫的初衷。

I have a friend who is specialized in maker education for children. He made some teaching props by himself, which often need to be moved in and out from his office. He usually tiled those teaching materials to a grocery cart and wheeled it around the school to explain them to the children and parents. Having seen this, I wanted to create a small and ingenious storage cart to support his maker education for kids. By use of an abandoned bicycle, discarded iron car sheets, and leftover materials of eco-friendly boards, it was possible to make a mobile maker classroom for children. The goal was to make it creative, interesting and lively, and bring hope to reuse industrial waste in a natural and artistic way.

要陈放多一些的物品,将共享单车改造成承载量大的三轮车架。避免来回搬运物品和安全性,要对储物架进行遮盖。一个有意思的遮盖、一种更具创意的打开方式被充分想象,七星瓢虫是小朋友们相对比较了解的有益甲虫,选择将瓢虫翅翼打开的方式,运用到三轮货架的遮盖开合理念上。这种开合状态使得货架相对较长,为了综合稳定性,在整车尾部增加了一个万向的辅助轮。根据封闭的内空间合理设置陈放层台,多层的设计方便储物也增强了整车结构,结合上层小下层大的特点,首层板宽度大设置了可以坐靠的空间。

The shared bicycle was transformed into a tricycle with large loading capacity, in order to display more items. To protect the items and avoid moving them repeatedly, we designed a special cover on the shelf, which drew inspirations from lady beetles, a type of beneficial insect that kids are familiar with. The way that lady beetles open and close wings was applied to the cover, appealing and creative. Because of the beetle-wings-shaped cover, the shelf needs to be relatively long. With a view to ensuring the stability of the tricycle, we added an auxiliary omni wheel to its end. For the enclosed inner space, a multi-layer display structure was designed, which strengthens the whole installation and makes it more convenient to store items. From top to bottom, the layers gradually become larger in size, with the lowest one enabling kids to sit and lean on.

微共享书屋|A Micro Shared Library

虽为儿童移动创客课堂的初始,也希望能拓展到多重功能。将陈放格物的内部空间,设置灵活的安插分隔板,使用者可根据需求进行大、小储物空间的自由调整,也可以完全取下隔板,变成一个完整的大空间。使一个基于定制的造物,变得通用化。

Although it was originally designed to be a children’s mobile maker classroom, I also hoped to endow it with multiple functions. The interior spaces for displaying items are flexibly partitioned into several smaller storage areas by plates, which can be freely adjusted according to users’ needs. Besides, all the partitions can also be removed, through which a complete big space will be formed. The installation can be customized based on different needs, making it versatile and “universal”.

作为通用的延展功能之一:“微型共享书屋”,这里面的书籍都是通过向好友们征集闲置的二手书籍而来,每人提供一本或多本图书,在图书中可增加关于共享此书的一句话。共享微书屋可放置在城市的某个空间,他人可以随意阅读,也可以将自己闲置的书籍放置于此,或替换取走自己喜欢的书籍。城市单车的共享荒废了,让大家的闲置书籍分享起来。

For example, it can be used as a micro shared library, where second-hand books collected from my friends were arranged. Each friend provided one or more books, and they were invited to write a sentence on the books they shared. This tiny shared library can be placed in somewhere in the city. Everyone is allowed to read the books and put their idle books here to replace their loved one. Shared bikes have been abandoned in cities. However, it brings promising possibility for book sharing.

未知城市里的共享瓢虫|Shared Lady Beetle in the unknown city

城市发展中新事物的创造可能是希望,也可能带来巨大的失望。面对未知的发展,我们应保持希望,化废为宝,见招拆招,关照城市,关照地球。
共享瓢虫,就像行走在“城市叶片”上的“益虫”,它可以是一个移动的书屋、一个儿童创客课堂、一个便利摊…
或者,它只是带给人们对城市未知进程的一次善意思量…

Urban development constantly creates new things, which may bring hope or cause great disappointment.
Facing the unknown development in the city, we should stay positive, strive to change waste into treasure and tackle changing situation responsively, so as to better take care of the city and the earth.
The Shared Lady Beetle, is like a “beneficial insect” walking on the “urban leaf”, which can be used as a mobile library, a stall, or a maker classroom for kids, etc.
Or, it is merely well-meaning reflection on unknown urban development…
