CHINA’S MOST AMBITIOUS ECOCITY YET!

中国最有抱负的生态城!展览-论坛-总规
 

Urban China is booming...but still without any real vision. Now the green city is on the agenda across the nation this must change. The project Caofeidian–Genetic City is China’s most ambitious response to the triple-challenge of explosive growth, environmental pressure, and healthy human desires for the future. A project that exposes the current green models will not suffice.

 

中国的城市建设如火如荼……关于城市的远见卓识却仍然缺位。当绿色城市已登上国家的议事日程表之时,这必须被改变。曹妃甸进化城项目是在中国最有抱负的探索,它试图同时回应三重挑战——城市的爆炸性增长、环境的压力以及人类对未来的欲望。一个暴露目前绿色城市模式不可持续的项目。

 
CAOFEIDIAN ECOCITY – GENETIC CITY
  

Caofeidian is a new coastal city next to Tangshan in Northern China. 

While currently empty, the population is anticipated to rapidly exceed

1 million. Caofeidian Ecocity is part of a $50bn industrial zone including a deep water port, some of the largest steel production plants in the world, and expansive oil refineries. This is the economic thrust behind the large-scale local urbanization.

 

How to build a new sustainable city is the most compelling problem facing planners today. To tackle this, for Caofeidian the DCF proposed a radical new evolutionary design method. Ten world renowned architecture practices were asked to plan not all at once, but in relay to achieve a proposal for Caofeidian Genetic City in the year 2040. Evolving through stages, this evolutionary process simulates a city with an organic inner logic.
 
 

曹妃甸生进化城

  

曹妃甸是位于华北地区邻近唐山市的一座新兴海滨城市。虽目前仍然空旷,但曹妃甸的城市人口将很快过百万。曹妃甸生态城是投资500亿美元工业区的一部分,有大型深水港,还有名列世界前茅的钢铁厂。这些都将是当地城市化背后的经济推力。

 

如何缔造全新的可持续的城市将是城市规划者今天需要迫切解决的问题。动态城市基金会向曹妃甸提出了激进的全新的进化设计方法,以探索这一问题的解决。十家世界知名的建筑事务所受邀参与了这一次规划,他们不是同时进行,而是以接力的方式为曹妃甸进化城2040年的总规提出不同时间段的方案。通过在不同时期的演变,这一进化过程试图模拟城市天然的生长逻辑。
