Sometimes we spontaneously carry out massing and spatial studies – not for anything else but the passion and curiosity we have for design.  These studies usually are not commissioned by any specific client, and are initiated by inspirations and sparks generated from daily design discussions or even casual chats at our studio - we find it both fun and experimental. 

Although they remain in the form of 2d drawings or physical model most of the time, we would still like to share with you from time to time – we have learned so much from the process as well as gained tremendous pure joy, and would like to extend the findings, inspirations and fun to you as well.

Small-scale architecture and urban space have never played the leading role in the process of urbanization in modern/contemporary Chinese metropolis, but rather in a marginalized, awkward position – this has been determined by complex historical and reality factors.

In recent years, urban regeneration movement has been a new trend; as a result, smaller-scale projects have received more attention than ever. Even so, more often than not architects tend to focus on architecture and interior design itself over the urban and streetscape shaped by the (aggregation of ) small-scale buildings.

The massing and spatial study carried out this time takes subjectively/randomly selected letter-shaped plans to generate three-dimensional massing volumes, and focused on the figure-ground relationship created when they are placed in a confined envelope.

有时候我们仅出于对设计的热情和好奇,自发进行一些体量和空间的研究练习。这些项目往往没有特定的甲方,只是缘于平日工作室设计讨论或闲聊过程中的一灵光乍现或火花,但又充满趣味和实验性。

虽然他们通常停留于二维图纸或模型,但我们仍然希望不定期地和您分享 - 我们从过程中获得了许多收获、积累和愉悦,希望也能给您带来乐趣或启发。

小体量建筑和城市空间在现当代中国大城市空间发展进程种似乎一直不是主角,而更像一个地位尴尬的“边缘化“角色 - 这是由复杂的历史和现实因素决定的。

近几年来,随着旧城改造运动如火如荼地开展,小尺度建筑也受到了更多的关注;然而建筑师很多时候我们可能更多地关注建筑、室内本身,较少去专门研究小体量建筑(群)所塑造的城市、街道空间

本次体块与空间研究抛开复杂的建筑外表和内部空间,采用主观随机选定的二维字母平面生成三维体块模型,并在一个限定的基地空间内试图探索小体量建筑、形体的组合及其形成的空间图底关系。
