Sinuous structure by NEXT architects wins Chinese bridge competition

Sinuous structure by NEXT architects wins Chinese bridge competition | Urbanisme | Scoop.it

NEXT architects has won a competition to design a pedestrian bridge for Changsha, China, with plans for a wavy structure based on a Möbius strip.

The structure will comprise a sequence of undulating steel ribbons that combine to create a never-ending surface, with intersecting connections, based on the principal of the Möbius ringThe form is also intended to reference traditional Chinese crafts.

The bridge will create three different routes across the water, including one that reaches a height of 24 metres to offer views of the harbour, the city and the surrounding mountains. Lighting fixtures will highlight the profile of the structure after dark.

Smart Cities + Green Megaprojects of the Future

Smart Cities + Green Megaprojects of the Future | Urbanisme | Scoop.it

For many years, architects and city planners from around the world have been trying to create the green ideal: an entire city built to strict environmental standards- highly functional while still retaining aesthetic value.


Here’s a look at some green building and community design that caught our attention in recent months and may (or may not) become reality in the next several years. Their physical footprints may be large, but by using features such as wind power, solar, rainwater recycling and advanced air quality controls, their carbon footprints don't have to be...

This is going beyond Mazdar in Dubai.  The reality is that we need to transform existing cities since starting from scratch is rare.  We need to retrofit cities more than build new ones, but still it is interesting.

A high-density, car-free vertical city in Chengdu, China

A high-density, car-free vertical city in Chengdu, China | Urbanisme | Scoop.it
Work is about to start on a high-density, car-free "satellite city" for 80,000 people close to Chengdu in China.

 

Designed by Chicago firm Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture, the 1.3 square km 'Great City' will feature a high-rise core surrounded by a buffer landscape of open space (60% of the total area). Residents will be able to walk from the city center to its edge in just 10 minutes.

“The design is attempting to address some of the most pressing urban issues of our time,” said architect Gordon Gill. “We’ve designed this project as a dense vertical city that acknowledges and in fact embraces the surrounding landscape.”

L'urbanisation de la Chine au cours des dernières décennies  est un phénomène massif par son  l'échelle et par sa vitesse. Dans les années 1980, dans une  Chine très "différente", il y avait moins de 200 millions de  personnes classées en population «urbaine» (un cinquième de la population totale). Cependant, d'ici 2011, 700 millions (la moitié de la population totale) vit dans les zones urbaines, tandis que la  population urbaine va continuer à croître dans le futur car on s'attend à 250 millions de travailleurs migrants  se déplaçant vers les villes d'ici 2030.

L'urbanisation, en Chine, est contrôlé par le système du hukou, un système d'enregistrement des ménages introduit en 1958. Le système du hukou lie juridiquement les travailleurs migrants à leur domicile en milieu rural et a été conçu pour garder les résidents ruraux travaillant sur l'exploitation.

La question de l'urbanisation est un élément clé dans les dicussions bilatérales sino-européennes et est également un domaine d'intérêt pour DRAGON-STAR.

Amazing statistics on the urbanisationof China. A fascinating read to supplement work on global population studues.

Is China's lakeside city the future of urban planning?

Is China's lakeside city the future of urban planning? | Urbanisme | Scoop.it

China's next new city will be designed by US firm KPF, next to Hunan's regional capital, around a 40-hectare lake.

 

Adjacent to Changsha, the ancient capital city of Hunan, the design implements the sort of urban innovation that creates a sustainable and truly habitable environment.

"We can introduce integrated urban innovation," von Klemperer says, "we can combine water transport with localised energy production, cluster neighbourhood centres, advanced flood prevention and water management, and urban agriculture. Meixi is an experiment in future city planning and building. It will serve Changsha as a new CBD, but it will also serve as a paradigm for other Chinese city planners. It's a kind of live test case."

 

The firm seeks to achieve these goals through its dense, mixed-use urban, plan, with integration with surrounding mountains, lakes, parks and canals. Meixi Lake will eventually be home to 180,000 inhabitants, living in "villages" of 10,000 people, clustered around the canals...
