Jinyun Quarries

Video: Jinyun Quarries

The mountainous landscape of Jinyun County in Zhejiang Province, China, has been shaped by the manual mining of natural stone. For the rugged and hard-to-access region, the Beijing architect Xu Tiantian and her team were asked to develop strategies for new uses for nine of the over 3000 small, abandoned quarries, which now provide a stage for cultural and social activities, and simultaneously strive for ecological improvements and create new economic perspectives for the rural population. The pits, provided with new functions, have become part of a public infrastructure that puts historical aspects extending back over a thousand years as well as the everyday culture heritage in a new context. The exhibition, which reached us from Beijing by the most sustainable means of transport possible, namely by train, communicates the breath-taking sense of space in the stone quarries of Jinyun in a large-scale installation. Spacious, translucent models, photos, plans, and films visualize the complex structure of the spaces carved into the rock.

URBAN ERGONOMICS. FROM STEEL PLANT TO OLYMPIA TO PUBLIC GOOD
Zhang Li / TeamMinus, Tsinghua University Beijing

In February 2022, China will host the XXIV Winter Olympic Games. The various sports events will be held in three locations; Beijing, Yanqing and Zhangjiakou. In Beijing, the games largely take place in the existing sports facilities built for the Summer Olympics in 2008. The only new project is the Big Air Shougang slope for freestyle skiing and snowboarding in Shougang Industrial Park designed by Brian Li Zhang’s design office TeamMinus at Tsinghua University in Beijing. Big Air Shougang is located at the once largest steel plants in the region. The Olympic Games will be used to sustainably transform the gigantic industrial relics for new uses. The exhibition focuses on the jumping track for the Big Air Shougang and encourages visitors to communicate ergonomically with the building through an interactive game. The office’s approach is presented in three other projects, where space for movement decisively shapes the architecture. The Jianamani Visitor Centre in Qinghai province, the underground cultural centre in the Piazza and Art Space Gujiaying Village in Yanqing and the Aranya Ideas Camp and Community Centre in Qinhuangdao. TeamMinus received the IUPA International Urban Project Award 2021, awarded by Bauwelt, Berlin and WA World Architecture, Beijing for the Big Air Shouguangtransformation project with the facility for free-style skiing and snowboarding, while the Jianamani Visitor Centre received the Zumtobel Group Award – Innovations for Sustainability and Humanity in the Built Environment back in 2017.

Southeast Asian Modernism

Encounters with Southeast Asian Modernism sheds light on the history, significance and future of socially relevant design ideas of postcolonial modernism in the region and addresses them in the context of the Bauhaus centenary 2019 in Germany. With partners in four selected cities – Jakarta, Phnom Penh, Singapore and Yangon – Encounters explores the impact of modernism at the crossroads between early globalisation, local conditions, political upheaval and the search for an independent identity, starting with the period of upheaval that accompanied the transition to independence after colonial times.

Die Ausstellung zeichnet erstmals das Werk des Architekten Richard Paulick nach: vom Bauhaus, über seine Erfahrungen in Shanghai, zum Bauen in nationalen Traditionen an der Stalinallee bis zur erneuten Hinwendung zur Moderne im industriellen Bauwesen der DDR. Diese Spannung zwischen Historismus und Modernismus wurde im geteilten Berlin zwischen Ost (Stalin-/Karl-Marx-Allee) und West (Interbau 1957) politisch konfrontativ aufgeladen. Heute arbeitet Berlin am Antrag, beide Ensembles gemeinsam für die Welterbeliste der UNESCO zu nominieren.
