Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism/Architecture UABB Shenzhen: CONSTRUCTING FUTURE CITIES

2019 Exhibition
Guangming Pavillion Interconnected Future

 

The future construction of cities is evermore interconnected through material ecology and emergent building technology. There exists a strong link between modern city planning and the industrial scale of its building operations, such as can be observed in the vast proliferation of modular and monotonous highrise tower apartments. In contrast to modernist city planning, the rethinking of standard construction models as a consequence of emerging automated digital strategies can expand possibilities in form, material, and habitation towards locally adaptable systems at the urban scale. To address the increasingly prevalent environmental, economic, and social challenges of our urban environment, new techniques of construction and custom computational protocols such as additive manufacturing or robotic timber construction are essential to advance the urban environment. Such methods of mass-customization offer alternate ways to design and build our city fabric and enable the discovery of novel architectural expression in the process. 

The exhibition showcases experimental works and full-scale implementations of new fabrication techniques in architectural scale projects as well as speculative housing and construction systems at the urban scale. By leveraging technology and advanced fabrication tools for material, spatial, and cultural experimentation, each project explores fundamentally new material methods, tectonic articulations, and forms of construction. Together, the projects aim to engage in a dialogue about the future construction of urban environments. 

建设未来城市 

未来的城市建设将与材料生态学和新兴建筑技术有着越来越多的相互联系。从模块化和单调的高层塔式公寓的大量泛滥中可以看出,现代城市规划与其建筑行业的产业规模之间有着密切的联系。 与现代城市规划相比,新兴的自动化数字手段引发了对标准建筑模型的重新思考, 将形式,材料和居住环境的可能性扩展到城市规模的本土适应系统。为了解决我们城市环境中日益普遍的环境,经济和社会挑战,增材制造或机械木材建造等新的建筑技术和自定义计算分析对于改善城市环境至关重要。这种大规模定制的方式提供了设计和建造城市结构的替代方法,并在过程中发现了更加新颖的建筑表现形式。 

本次展览将展出实验作品和新型制造技术在建筑上的全面应用,以及城市尺度的实验性住房設計和建造系统。通过利用技术和先进的制造工具进行材料,空间和文化的实验,每个项目从根本上探索新的材料方法, 建构表达和建造形式,将共同致力于就未来城市环境建设。
