When we measure the city, the scale should stay with the people, fitting the needs, actions and feelings of the people. Bulky buildings blur not only the skyline but also the right of use, blocking human interaction. So here in an old industrial park area, where the surroundings are. messy, we leverage simple materials, odd and even numbers of criss-cross pillars to set up 6m or 9m height of floors, paying tribute to the discourse of common ground in La Biennale di Venezia in 2012. The visual scale can be customized, and in the messy surrounds it’s like a yeast or a mirror that truly show the differences in real life. The site is located in an old industrial area, with many organically growing factories. We use consistent materials, styles and spaces, and sequences on façade to respond to dynamics and inconsistent designs in the surroundings. The design offers a comparatively stable and harmonious being, in contrast to chaotic textures in the neighborhood. With linear spaces, asymmetrical structural appearance, and rhythms in openings, we intend to create visual impacts within and between buildings. This unique scale different from other buildings around us remind people to pay more attention to the urban landscape.
