Beijing Hutong Bubble / MAD Architects
by @madarchitects #tbt Hutong Bubble in Beijing China’s rapid development has altered the city’s landscape on a massive scale, continually eroding the delicate urban tissue of old Beijing, particularly the traditional alleyway neighborhoods known as hutongs. Such dramatic changes have forced an aging architecture to rely on the right opportunity, spontaneous renovations to keep pace with the ever-changing neighborhood. In addition, poor standards of hygiene have turned unique living spaces and potentially thriving communities into derelict districts. Hutongs are increasingly disregarded by their own residents, and turned into quaint theme parks for tourists. The self-perpetuating degradation of the city’s urban tissue requires a change in the living conditions of local residents. Progress does not necessarily call for large scale construction – it can occur as interventions at a small scale. The hutong bubbles it is plugged into the urban tissue, it is an attractor, attracting new people, activities, and resources to bring together a neighborhood. They exist in symbiosis with the old. It is fueled by urban residue, the bubbles and it transforms to support the community’s needs. It allows the local residents to continue living in the old neighborhoods. In time, these interventions will become part of Beijing’s extending history, newly formed membranes within the city’s urban tissue. #modernarchitecture #architectureporn #china #madarchitects #architecture #architect #architecturelovers #architecturestudio #tbt #design #mayansong #harbin #musichall #livemusic #love #culturalfacility #vsco #vscocam #afterlight #mextures #culture #igersarchitecture #igersarchitects #mad #china
