Timber in the City

城市森林

        该项目是位于纽约市中心的一个木结构建筑,地点位于弗农大道上,毗邻皇后桥公园,在大桥的南侧。场地紧靠河岸,为城市和项目之间提供了自然的联系,人们可以从河边看到繁华的曼哈顿。从河的另一边也可以看到这栋楼。人们可以从不同的出入口进入大厦,比如街道、公园甚至河岸边。当人们沿着河岸散步时,可以从栈道或船的接驳口进入社区。

        The project is a wood structure building in the downtown area of New York City. The site is on the Vernon Boulevard, next to Queensbridge Park, on the south side of the bridge. The site is at the river bank which provide a natural connection between the city and the project. People can see the busy Manhattan from the river side. The building can also be seen from the other side of the river. If they want to get into the building, there are many different ways. People can join the community from the street, the park, even the river. When people come from the riverbank, they can get into the community easily from the path or the boat.

场地整体分析之住宅分布   General Site Analysis on Residential Distribution

        长岛地区分布着一些住宅区。从人口集中度来看,年轻人更喜欢居住在这个地区。东河岸只有一个大型的集中社区,除此之外都是一些小型的私人住宅和公寓。大型社区建于上世纪末,到现在已经有些陈旧了。设计用地距离这个社区只有几分钟的步行路程。

        There are some communities in Long Island Area. From population concentration, many young adults prefer to live in this area. There’s only one large community on the east river bank. The other are small private houses and apartments. The large community was built at the end of last century which is a little old until now. The site was a few minutes walk from it.

场地整体分析之商业分布   General Site Analysis on Commercial Distribution

        许多公寓楼都是围绕着皇后区大桥而建。其中,长岛地区有一个大型社区。大多数商业中心和公寓都是相关的,要么他们本身相关,要么有相似的目标群体。纽约是一个大城市,许多商业中心都位于该区域。

        Many apartment buildings are surrounding the Queensboro Bridge. There’s a large community in the Long Island area. Most of the communities and apartments are related, either from one association or faced to the similar group of people. New York is a large city. Many commercial spots are located in this area.

场地整体分析之绿地分布   General Site Analysis on Green Area Distribution

        建筑用地附近有几个绿地。其中一个是大型公园,其他都是小型运动场。与桥相邻的的公园是最靠近用地的,它可以作为场地与河流的一个链接,甚至将其与城市连接起来。其他的运动场离该地区有点远,因此社区需要拥有自己的运动场地。同时,绿色屋顶的使用也在城市中大力推广。

        There are several green areas near the site. One is a large public park. The others are small sports fields. The park is next to the bridge which is close to the site. It can connect the site community to the river, even to the city. The other sports fields are a little bit far from the area which makes the community need to have its own wellness center. Besides, the green roof is also recommended in the city.

分隔:光照   Cut: Natural Sunlight

       为了提供尽可能多的光照,建筑雏形如上图所示。同时,可以尽可能的避开桥上的噪音,并且尽量朝向南方。综上所述,北侧部分是没有光照的,这是初步的形态。

        To embrace as much sunlight as possible, the building is going to be set in this way at first. It can avoid the noise from the bridge and collect the sunlight from the south. The north side is blocked because of the sunlight issue. It will change.

       为了将场地与街道隔离开来,在南侧设置一个了体块。它也可以作为公共活动区域,因为它连接了场地的内部和外部。建筑体内的私人空间可以有多种使用方式。

        To enclose the site from the busy street, set up a block on the south side. It is also can be used as public activities area since it connects the inside and the outside. The in-site private space can be used in many ways.

扩展:减少风阻   Extension: Block Wind

开放:生物设计   Open: Biophilic Design

       由于建筑体块过于集中,因此设计了一些开放空间。中间是一个庭院,白天作为早教中心的一个安全的室内游乐区,晚上变成了一个社区聚会场所。

        Since the massing was too blocky and solid, it needs to have some opening and cutting. The square one is the courtyard which creates a secure indoor play area during daytime and a community gathering place at night.

       为了更好的连接河岸以及河对岸的市区,将河岸附近的街区逐层推进到场地内部。 随着小单元的堆叠,可以同时设置其中的许多其他部分——尤其是堆叠块上的绿地。

        To embrace the riverbank and the downtown area across the river, push the block near the riverbank into the site. With the cluster coming out, many other parts can be set simultaneously-- especially the green roof on the cluster.

堆叠:连接河岸   Cluster: Connect Riverbank

        景观也是社区的重要组成部分。公共绿地为社区内的人们创造了一个开放空间,也欢迎愿意加入社区的人前来参观。环境装置还成为了连接场地和建筑主体的路径,这些栈道也是社区的另一个特色。它以不同的方式丰富了人们的生活,人们可以沿着木栈道跑步、走路、聚会,甚至可以喝杯咖啡。栈道把这些功能集群紧密连接在一起,这不仅是一条道路,也是人们体验整个社区的路径。人们可以从位于弗农大道的正门、或者河边的渡船口开始他们的旅程。两个入口都可以自然地进入社区的氛围;另一方面,人们也可以从河边或林荫大道一侧进入城市环境。

        The landscape is also an essential part of the community. The green space created an opening gathering area for people in the community and also welcome people who were willing to join the community. The landscape also connects the site and the path in the building. The path is the other special feature of the community, which enriches people’s life in different ways. People can run, walk, get gathering, and even have a cup of coffee along the path. The path connects the functional clusters tightly together. This is not only a running track but also a path for people to experience the entire community. People can start their trip from the riverside or the main entrance of the Vernon Boulevard. Both sides can bring the citizens into the community naturally. On the other hand, people can also get into the city from the river bank or the boulevard.
