Dialogue between architectural archives and Chai Sheng


Because in my opinion, there is no difference in the importance between a building on Chang’an Street and a house in Shanye Linquan

.

However, no matter how strong the atmosphere is, the main body of modern architecture is still in the city

.

This is the dialogue scene of architectural archives! Chai Sheng, chairman and chief designer of chenggou architecture, I always think that an architect can be a miscellany

.

Sometimes it can be said: it doesn’t matter what the building looks like in the environment, but it’s important to open the opening to the environment

.

With the established rules and support, break away

.

-What I really feel is that the “breath” of architecture that can not be conveyed by vision is that more and more developed images and network media make people understand architecture only from a single visual effect, which also causes the visual formalization of architectural creation to a certain extent, thus drowning the real architectural value

.

The scope of the real estate market is also very large

.

So you still have to come back and create within the limits of the city and the market

.

Of course, there are also spatial changes, but in the end, most of them are implemented in a visual form, and then reach everyone’s eyes in the form of image communication

.

At first, as a private design company, we must focus on highly market-oriented real estate projects

.

Later, we went to the Internet to find out that these two words actually have a great origin

.

When I sit in gaotongyuan or shixiantang in Kyoto, even as an architect, I don’t care about the form of architecture any more

.

The cultural attribute implied in architecture is also based on one’s own ideal

.

Personally, I don’t pursue to build such grand buildings

.

Form conveys an intercepted impression

.

Jan.27 records the facts with words and inspires with dialogue

.

With the growth of the market, we have grown from less than 30 people to nearly 300 people in Shenzhen and Shanghai

.

But for me, to feel architecture, I need to feel the space beauty of architecture through six senses, namely “eyes, ears, nose, tongue, body and mind”

.

Therefore, even in the face of buildings that are strictly restricted by the city and the market, I still have both choices and insistence on the architectural “flavor”.

.

In ancient times, literati built gardens

.

They did not pursue the innovation of architectural form (in fact, individual buildings follow the form)

.

On the contrary, I often encourage my colleagues to say that the things we do are closely related to the life of every family

.

At first, it was such a simple idea

.

They come from the book of the Northern Qi Dynasty: “and Wenxiang chenggou, the more guangqianye, kangbangyinan, Doug dome.” It means: to create a bigger and broader cause, to build a peaceful and prosperous country, to cultivate one’s moral integrity, and to have lofty aspirations

.

Just like some oriental classical masters, they are all able to communicate with each other

.

Therefore, when I started to do real estate projects, I didn’t have any resistance and fall behind

.

In some mountain forest spring projects, “breath” is easier to feel

.

He thought that “Cheng” is a building that inherits its context in the city, and “structure” is construction

.

-The beginning of the construction should be 2008

.

“Breath” starts from the single sense organ and then enters the interface of human heart

.

At that moment, the form is not important, the important thing is that space can help you open all your senses and touch your heart quietly

.

However, if we take photos of these buildings, we will find that their architectural forms are almost similar, and there is no sense of innovation or impact in vision

.

We have also won several international awards

.

In the unique rhythm and order of space, the breath is flowing, thus moving people’s hearts

.

If architecture is visual art, it is a kind of art that emphasizes the sense of the eye

.

Architecture should give the entrants a sense of participation as a whole

.

When I first came to Shenzhen, I was in charge of the scheme Office of Sidi International (formerly Shenzhen China Construction design company)

.

Because in this kind of project, the key consideration is many other factors

.

We are one of those companies with a certain sense of culture and close connection with the real estate market

.

The problem is that it is difficult for visual media to convey the unique feeling of space

.

Because, this is the part that we feel

.

There was a time when I was a little out of my main business, and I especially liked to build in the mountains

.

It also has cultural architecture, cultural and tourism architecture, residential development, shopping mall and other formats

.

Some buildings are good, but they have nothing to do with the lives of many people

.

When that breath touches our mind, that state or the things produced at that moment cannot be accurately conveyed by vision

.

Now, even in many international awards, the judges will not personally tour the buildings, just look at the buildings with photos or videos

.

It is a pity that there are few opportunities to realize the architectural “flavor”

.

At that time, the projects we participated in were basically landmark buildings and public buildings such as Shenzhen high tech fair, China Unicom headquarters building and Zhongshan opera house

.

In fact, the name “chenggou” comes from chance

.

Shixiantang is an example of Japanese architecture

.

Although the artistic pursuit of creativity is not surprising, it is mostly in the pursuit of form change

.

In the second year of the establishment of the contractor (Xiamen Youth League Construction in 2009), although I don’t hold the idea of binary opposition, I still think that there is a difference between them

.

After the establishment of “chenggou”, due to inertia, it began to have a kind of directivity

.

So this has evolved into the company’s current positioning

.

Therefore, I will come to Shixian hall again and again, and do the same thing each time: sit quietly under its eaves

.

Therefore, I have to be “wild” once in a while

.

When you think about it, the two are not opposite

.

I held the same mentality as I used to do public buildings, and I didn’t draw a boundary in my heart

.

It can also be created in a very busy urban environment, but it is more restricted, especially in real estate projects

.

I don’t think there is anything wrong with the transformation from large-scale urban public buildings to market-oriented real estate construction

.

Later, he participated in the establishment of Shenzhen Huahui, which was in the initial stage, so he had less opportunities to obtain large-scale public buildings and more real estate projects

.

However, once they are combined, each garden gives you a unique feeling, which is difficult to express in visual language

.

Only when we do a good job in every space can we really affect the life of some families

.

At the beginning of its establishment, our first goal was to survive in the design market and hope to grow into a big tree

.

-After a short period of separation, “chenggou” will come back again

.

Shixiantang, the unique feeling of architecture, is summed up and defined as the “breath” of architecture

.

There will be a trade-off between “what you want to do” and “what you have to do”, and there will also be certain restrictions

.

We first studied western architecture, and some western education systems even classified architecture as visual art

.

This is not the positioning given by ourselves, but by the market

.

Xu Feng, my partner, first came up with the name

.

In recent years, I have been thinking about the relationship between my personal pursuit of Architectural “breath” and the construction of the main business

.

The cultural tourism project we did two years ago is a good attempt between the two

.

The same is true of Chinese classical architecture

.

And “breath” just focuses on people’s overall feelings

.

For example, the “qingleisure Mountain Residence” we built in Qingcheng Mountain of Chengdu has little investment, but it conveys an obvious flavor

.

What a good name! It’s just the beginning of our business “scholar spirit, flaunt Fangqiu.” Construction logo – between what I want to do and what I have to do, for myself and construction, I didn’t have a clear positioning at the beginning, which is a state of walking on this road unconsciously
