HOUSING FOR BEIJING BIRD LOVERS
by Joseph Robinson
A project focused around the reimagining of the relationship between nature and humans following the COVID-19 pandemic. Inspired by Chinese landscape paintings and traditional roof joinery, the project seeks to bring together two different communities through an extension of the street and market space. Bridging Chinese Hutongs and utilitarian mid-rise blocks, the site provides a visual landscape on an urban scale, a connection between communities on a communal scale and dual aspect living surrounded by nature and space for hobbies on a domestic scale.
