Project Name:Poverty Pier

Project Link:https://architectureprize.com/winners/winner.php?id=4091

Concept:

Poverty in Metropolis?

With many rivers running through New York City, bridges have become an indispensable element of the city, undoubtedly. In order to provide those homeless people a place with safety and tidiness, one of the proper ways is to utilize the unused spaces under the bridges. However, those piers of bridges scattered along the rivers come in various sizes, so an executable method to tackle the problem is to turn the congregate shelters into different units. With those “Basic Units”, temporary shelters could adapt to different lengths, widths, and heights of bridges and the piers.

Project Name:The seed
Project Link:https://architectureprize.com/winners/winner.php?id=4089

Concept:

“The Seed”, a stage before the bloom of flowers, new life is covered by layers, rooting down, developing upwards, and infinite possibilities may be quietly sprouting.

Existing refuge houses are evacuated in the form of after-the-fact remedy. In this case, the losses will be relatively large. In the era when space demand is gradually expanding, super-floors will certainly exist.

The high-rise structure is difficult to resist and after the tornado scale F2. In addition to the building as a research center with high-precision equipment, so we need to insure the stability of the structure.

Therefore, I use “The Seed” to explain my architectural concept. With the idea of “rooting”, I will build the building deep into the ground, reducing the degree of shaking, more like the seed body in the soil, and the ground as a natural protective layer. Just like seed germination has different stages, we can make different deformations according to different levels of tornado grading.

When the tornado left, all “The Seed” bud slowly from the ground, and the whole flower sea bloomed with blue dazzling light. It was a tenacious life that stood still after the tornado, and it was the representative of Texas in the United States – Cornflower.

Project Name:ArcticSaverTower
Project Link:https://architectureprize.com/winners/winner.php?id=4074

Concept:

The intensification of the climate warming has led to a sharp decrease in ice sheets in Greenland and the Arctic Ocean and an increase in heat absorbed by the oceans as a result of melting sea ice, which is the evidence of the beginning of a vicious ecological cycle caused by increased climate warming. Consequently, protecting the polar glaciers and covering the Arctic permafrost is the ultimate goal of the construction of the Arctic Protection Tower for the balanced development of the local biological chain.

Concept:

Ocean garbage has spread all over the world under the action of ocean currents, and even formed a large number of garbage islands.Rivers carry municipal waste into the ocean, where it accumulates.Garbage intercepting stations can intercept large enough volumes of river waste. According to the characteristics of the water carrying garbage on the surface of the river flowing to the concave bank, the interceptor station is placed on the concave bank of the river for garbage collection without affecting the normal flow of the river and the passage of ships. Garbage salvage can be carried out regularly, and maintenance and replacement can be carried out during the dry season of the river.

Project Name:HOUSE OF SANTA – DEFENSE OF THE GLACIE

Project Link:https://architectureprize.com/winners/winner.php?id=4100
Concept:
The project is located at the northeastern part of Greenland featuring the thickest ice sheet in Arctic, but may soon crack due to severe global warming. The major cause is that warm water flow touches the bottom of ice sheets, accelerating the recession. Thus, we build a high wall constructed at the transition zone of permanent ice sheets and icebergs to prevent it. The building is sat at the midpoint to monitor the icebergs, and arch-shape holes are designed as passageway for cracked ice. Besides, the Osmotic power facility is equipped at each hole to provide stable and sufficient energy.

Project Name:CAR-NECTION
Project Link:https://architectureprize.com/winners/winner.php?id=4093
Concept:
Mexico city was developed based on automobile and highway. However, highway structure encourages segregation from both sides of land. Moreover, collection of abandon cars and auto junkyards often locate near highway, which result undesirable living environment such as slum situation and cause various social problems. This proposal targets on both urban issues by turning abandon cars into capsule living unit to form organized communities. It does not only reactive undesirable urban corner but also encourage opportunity for connection between both sides of highway via sky-bridge access.
