Home > Winners > #75190


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Cultural Soul

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Urban Design

INSPIRATION:
Based on the cultural and creative industry as well as publishing industry, with the core of characteristic culture and life culture, and supplemented by the comprehensive utilization of tourism resources, Taiping Book Town forms a characteristic style blending rich living atmosphere, folk customs, tourism and industry. It’s a town embracing characteristic industries and at the same time provides the public with a characteristic town for leisure, entertainment and touring.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Inheriting history, creating the future, the transformation of Taiping Book Town launches new vitality. It has been a complex town equipped with a two-wheel drive that is dominated by the ancient town tourism and cultural and creative industry, and creates a special town perfect for working, touring, living and innovating.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The project uses water as the interface to generate multiple sections, echoing the village mode of Sleeping on Water in Taiping Book Town, and providing complete functions of Working, Living, Touring. By removing some of the old residential roads, and combing them to the river bank, the original street textures get linked. Setting up the public vitality core of the area along the open space, and taking the main entrance as the starting point, the Project uses the book culture as a clue to create a main touring experience path.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in June 2016 in Suzhou and finished in November 2018 in Suzhou.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The design introduces book culture as the soul and New Economy concept of human experience and the ancient town tourism, which has become an important means of urban repair, ecological restoration and industrial repair with innovations in form, industry composition and operation mode.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Planning Area: 275275 sqm Functional Division: Tourist Distribution Area contains Parking Lots, Taiping Old Street Core Area, Boutique Hotel Area, Binhu Boutique Homestay Area, Taiping Temple Religious Cultural Area, Tunxi Public Culture and Art Exchange Area

TAGS:
Suzhou, Taiping, Ancient Town, Book, Cutural, Water, Planning Design

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The design quotes the concept of Taking Root in the Earth. The Library above the atrium visually leads the architecture group of the Literary Courtyard. Its vertical traffic becomes an extended corridor inside the building, which connects the entrance, exit and vertical flows, and weaves various scattered interior spaces.The new and old walls intersperse, blending newly introduced streamlines with historic buildings.

CHALLENGE:
One of the challenges set by similar areas around Taiping Ancient Town. There are many tourist towns around Suzhou, which will have a certain impact on the formation of Taiping Ancient Town. This also requires Taiping Ancient Town to be different from other ancient towns in planning and positioning. One of the challenges is the implementation. As the construction of Taiping Ancient Town has been in disrepair for a long time, the environmental quality has not been well protected. Future development and implementation will also cause difficulties.
