Mirui Road is a tourist road that meets Highway 318 connecting Tibet and Sichuan province This road meanders southwards along the Niyang River. Within this 20km distance to the Brahmaputra Canyon, the specific terrain and landscape of Niyang River can be enjoyed from the road. Daze Village was chosen to be the entrance to this tourist attraction. There is little land left for further development in this village, therefore the river beach along the road was the only choice for the site of a tourist center.

Beijing has in the past 20 years re-invented itself from a historic city into a “futuristic” city. The city expanded outwards through one and yet more Ring Roads. This “road first” and “simply sprawling outward” way of planning has become a typical model of Chinese Urbanization.
在过去的20年中,北京已脱胎换骨,由历史性城市转变成为一个未来主义的城市。其环形公路一再向外扩张。这种的环路发展规划以及缺乏控制的对外扩展已成为中国城市化进程的典型模式。

Zhang's series of architecture in the Yalu Tsangpo Canyon area tries to explore modern architectural ideas in a modern tibet.He accomplishes this using his own modern style without the traditional striking curved windows or the more modern red plastic roofs,yet still maintaining a truely tibetian atmosphere to the building.

The Niyang river visitor centre by Beijing-based architect StandardArchitecture is ostensibly a very simple building. Situated on a popular tourist road in Tibet, and surrounded by awe-inspiring scenery, it offers space for rest, toilets and a ticket office. But the building is in a dialogue with its surroundings. Its stark, angular, minimal form was built using local materials and techniques resulting in a rich mix of contemporary and traditional, firmly in the "critical regionalist" mode.

米瑞公路是318国道(川藏线)在林芝县分出的一条旅游公路,这条公路沿着尼洋河谷东岸婉蜒起伏的河岸线向南延伸,在通往雅鲁藏布江大峡谷的20 km距离内,尼洋河谷独特的地貌一览无余。公路沿线的达则村被选为这条观光线路的起点,达则村的可建设用地所剩无多,村口的一片滩涂因此成为修建游客接待站的不二选择。

Un muro lungo 500 metri racchiude una serie di edifici a due piani che si susseguono in un continuo disegno di pareti bianche ripiegate a disegnare volumi compatti e corti interne. L'accesso si trova sul lato est; attraverso una scala inserita nello spessore del muro di cinta si accede a una passerella che conduce al secondo piano del primo volume. Tra il muro a sud e la serie di edifici si snoda una fitta macchia di bambu, mentre l'intero blocco è circondato e attraversato da canali d'acqua.

Gongbu - the south-eastern kingdom that Buddhist master Padmasambhava called the Capital of the Dead - refuses to celebrate New Year on the same day as the rest of Tibet. In Gongbu, it falls on the first day of the tenth month of the Tibetan calendar, for reasons that drift back 700 years, to the reign of King Ajiejiebu. The people of Gongbu say - they've always said - that although King Niechi gave them their independence, it's the heroic Ajiejicbu they should thank for their courage. One year, as deep autumn turned to winter, Ajiejiebu called every fighting man together, to meet an invading army that had broken in through the region's northern rim. But thoughts of the fat pork and barley wine of New Year had driven all the fighting spirit out of the braves of Gongbu. So Ajiejiebu decided to shift the New Yezt to the first day of the tenth month. Their celebrations completed, the merry men of Gongbu marched fearlessly off to rout their enemy in battle. But it was in the last campaign of the war, legend goes, that Ajiejiebu was killed, and his head and limbs hacked from his body. As they marched home, the sons of Gongbu carried aloft the dismembered torso of their leader, their songs of victory saddened by funeral bugles.

These stalagmites appear in Zhang Ke's work not for the first time. Such unique and characteristic form reminds people of a Karst landscape. This may be traced back to Ke Zhang's early practice as an architect in Guilin of South-West China. Apparently,Guilin's mountain and waterscapes provide a perfect image of Chinese nature, which is familiar to all of us.
这样的石笋造型并不是第一次出现在张轲的创作之中,这样一种独特而鲜明的形态很难让人不联想到喀斯特地貌的山水,这样的经验似乎与张轲主持的标准营造早年在阳朔的创作活动有关。显然,桂林山水是一种我们最熟悉而且最完美的中国式自然的图像。

Founded in 1999, standardarchitecture is a professional partnership formed by a group of international young designers. Originally established in New York, the office has gradually relocated its main base to Beijing in 2001. The office now has four principals: Ke Zhang, Hong Zhang, Zhenghua Hun, and Claudia Taborda. Their projects are not limited to historic sites, engaged in practices of architecture, landscape architecture, interior, and industrial design.

Zhang Ke's presentation focused on basic design based an investigative approach. He adopts a concept-oriented style, taking a radical and instrumental path instead of just following anyone. His buildings resonate with a latent intelligence. Starting from the landscape, each building grows into a complete structure that takes the surrounding environment into account.

UED:“标准营造”专注营造的是什么? 
张轲:我们非常关注建筑的真实存在,把梦想和真实存在的东西做一个具体的连接。如果要把梦想变成真实存在的话,你就必须去想去做,这是个必须要关注营造的过程,是个物化的过程。我们开始也没有那么较真,就想叫“标准建筑”来着。其实中国近代之前是没有“建筑”这个词的,只有叫“营造厂”的,其实就是施工队。

The work is a result of a series of experimental ideas, which sometimes appear in our architectural practice, and some of them have become the key word of our projects, whereas others still remains in our minds. It is part of the “Un-Natural” exhibition sponsored by Formica.

Since 2001, Standard Architecture has been actively involved in many public architecture designs and competitions in China. Standard has done many projects utilizing local culture and local materials. They believe that the globalization and the internationalization of architecture in China are not simply copied from western style or technology. The locality is the very source of a global architecture. The architects have deeply studied the local condition, tradition and culture, and have tried to innovate using the local character and context. This way of thinking can be seen in Standard Architecure's Wuhan French-Chinese Art Center. They believe that the cultural value of architecture is as important as its economical value.

This exhibition centre is located within a residential area called Phoenix City in the centre of the city of Wuhan, the capital of Hubei Province. The centre is close to the Yangtze River and the Wuchang quarter, a neighbourhood known for its historic association to key academic and literary figures in Chinese history. The design of the building is inspired by the ink and water brushstrokes of traditional Chinese scripts and scrolls. Clad in concrete, the centre is planned as two blocks facing one another across a 30 m (98.4 ft) wide public space, with a large reflecting pool. The space is enclosed by a 5.5 m (18 ft) high hollow concrete wall that connects the two blocks and is aligned along the Zhongshan Road. The remaining edge opens out to the rest of the residential development. The roadside facade, including the connecting wall, expresses the idea of calligraphy through irregular and elongated shapes cut into its surface, providing windows into the interior. This irregular pattern continues onto the roof to provide a series of diagonal, elongated skylights for the internal galleries. The external glazing on the north facades is more regular, and the two facades facing the interior open area are clad completely in glass. Inside, the polished wood floor provides a graceful contrast with the industrial concrete of the walls.

standardarchitecture (Zhang Ke, Zhang Hong, Claudia Taborda + Hou Zhenghua)
Zhang Ke graduated from Tsinghua University School of Architecture and then from the Harvard Graduate School of Design, after which he worked in New York. His practice, standardarchitecture (SA), was officially founded in 2001, in Beijing (evolving from his private practice in New York which he had established two years earlier) based on a long-distance collaboration with partner Zhang Hong, an experienced architect from Tsinghua's Architectural Design and Research Institute. Landscape architect Claudia Taborda, from Portugal, whom Zhang met at Harvard, and Hou Zhenghua complete the partnership.

Le premier, Zhang Ke, 38 ans, est peut-être pLus à l'aise pour avoir ajouté le diplôme de Harvard à celui de Tsinghua. Le second, 41 ans, a également fait l'expérience de deux universités, Tsinghua et le département d'architecture de L'université de Nankin.

Vision:事务所起名为标准营造是不是意指有一个标准化的模式?
张轲:我们做的设计正好相反,实际上不是一个标准的形式,更本质意义上的建造。我们不是以盈利为目的的事务所,对所有设计都感兴趣,除了建筑设计,室内、景观设计、旧城规划设计,我们也正在考虑一个时装品牌,还有与材料公司的合作设计,我们不愿重复所做过的设计。标准营造是一个很中性的名字,不代表一种风格,只是更标准意义上的建造,不是简单的某几种固定的形式。

Is it possible nowadays to begin an article featuring a young Chinese architecture firm without mentioning a globally felt sense of amazement at the speed and scale of China’s building process? Is it even conceivable to proceed to the main subject without an introduction that touches on all sorts of architectural, urban, social, public and environmental issues? In short, can a team of young Chinese architects be considered on their own merits, or is our universal knowledge of the problems facing Chinese architecture as a whole essential to an evaluation of their work? Clearly, seen from a Western perspective, the latter is still the case. The implications of China’s urbanization process are not yet fully understood, and our fascination with the countless problems and possibilities involved is simply mind-boggling. An impressive series of exhibitions and publications (some still pending), appearing mostly in Europe, invariably looks at the work of young Chinese architects (the so-called avant-garde) from this point of view. Their projects seldom or never receive individual attention, therefore, but rather fulfil a primarily exemplary function. Paradoxically enough, these designs are anything but representative of contemporary Chinese architecture; the few that are shown make up only a fraction of China’s total building production, and the architects in question are exceptions to the rule, as they use their designs to aim a critical response at conflicts in a constantly changing urban context.

The buildings occupy the entire boundary of the site, and the main alleys inside work as continuations of the neighboring urban fabric, We adopted a native way to have the main alleys point toward the major mountains nearby, namely the Lotus and the Dragon Head Mountain, As a result of this layout, all the six buildings become irregular in their plans. On the ground floor there are small shops and the shop owners live on these floors each have a bathroom and a kitchen. They could function either as apartments or as shops. Passing through the bridges linking each building, people will always find special views toward the surrounding Karst Mountains.
这个占地仅2300㎡的小街坊由5条街道和6栋相对独立的建筑组成,建筑占满了用地的边界,主要内部街道的走向考虑到城市肌理的延续性,并遵照当地的习惯朝向周边的主要山峰:碧莲峰和龙头峰,因此几栋楼几乎都是不规则的形状。街坊的一层由很多个独立的小店面组成,店铺的主人们就住在自己店面的楼上。小街坊的三层、四层由半室外走廊串成空中的街道,其中每个单元都设有独立的厨房和卫生间,既可居住也可以用作店面,人们在穿过空中平台时总能看见小街所对着的喀斯特山峰。

Standardarchitecture, founded in 1999 in New York, is a professional partnership formed by a group of international young designers engaged in practices of architecture, landscape architecture, interior, and industrial design.

domus:Why name the studio"Standardarchitecture"?
Zhang Ke:We like this name. On one hand, it is a neutral word, and doesn't imply anything physical; on the other hand, we chose "standardard" and "architecture" as a single word to indicate that we focus more on the nature of architecture. In the past, we called the construction team "Standard Factoty". Thus, at this juncture, we would like to pay more attention to construction and new discoveries in the process of it and try to figure out how to build contemporary architecture in the most essential way. Therefore, although most of our projects are not important to the market, they are all very interesting.

domus:What is your individual working method?
Zhang Ke:We try to immerse ourselves in an open environment of inspiration. Before designing, we survey the project in a liberal designig, we survey the project in a liberal way, discussing the social context behind it. There may also occur some construction innovations. Evety time a project starts, we always feel at a loss; we don't want to repeat ourselves. This is the biggest difficulty at the beginning of a project. However, we have confidence that if we view things from the most basic perspectives, we can have professional results, and a little differently. Take the restoration of a hotel for example: we would ask why the guests stay in a hotel. Do they need a room for a sleep, or a space for communication? Sometimes we may ignore things that are obvious, but when we focus on what is most necessary and most superfluous, all the basic questions, we can get the most essential conclusion.
Every generation of architects would have encountered nearly the same challenges. The essential issues of constructing a dwelling today is close to 3,000 years ago, but if you resort to diverse solutions, the conclusions will be different... which does not mean one is essentially distinguished from another.
We pursue precision, reliability, and attention to detail.

domus:How does the studio stick to the original concepts, the integration and the reaction to the site?
Zhang Ke:In our opinion, it is vital to maintain original concepts. laeally, supposing all the details are nearly the same as the original concepts, the desired final results inspire vision and emotions in people when using this space. It might be the first step, or the first doorknob they grasp. In each of our projects, which brings us big problems, and we have to admit that it is a kind of an idealistic tendency. Therefore, the "struggle for freedom" may vividly repersent our process.
Another characteristic is integration. It covers wider areas: from urban planning to interior design, and landscape design. The project we won in Yangshuo was a planning competition. The client offered us a small site to construct a building and what we did was to divide the building into several streets, and designed the interiors as well as the landscapes.
The third is construction supervision. The ideal situation would be to go to the site twice a week, so we choose our projects catefully, no matter how big or how small.

domus:Do you have preferred materials?
Zhang Ke:We prefer original materials. We are testiong a new material on an already built building; the material is made by pressing wood boards and plexiglas together to detemine how to use them as both structure and layer.

domus:Why do you use urban fabric as the starting point of design?
Zhang Ke:We discuss the urban fabric more in a perspective of landscape, not in sociological terms, because we cannot imagine changing society through architecture, which makes our usage of material different from the Utopian ideage. Achitects can only develop a more harmonious environment for human and nature. 
Considering the landscape, we would consider the city and its surroundings or the inner or public contractions of space as a landscape in the broadest sense. But our regard for landscape does not mean we ultimately engage in the urban fabric, since what we desire is a clear relationship: perhaps engagement, detachment, or even confrontation. At this moment we engage in urban practices, but we also aim to make contributions to the modern culture of a future China.


Wuhan CRIand French-Chinese Art Centre
The site of the art center is located across the street from the Wuchang Tanhualin historic area, less than 2 kilometers away from the historic Huanghelou tower on the Yangtzi River. The expectation of the building was an important public space for the city and a monument for both the past and the ongoing transtormation of the city. The fact that many famous Chinese intellectuals lived in the Tanhualin area actoss the street inspired us. We were interested in testing the possibilities of building something out of the ancient Chinses intellectual practice of ink and water. The art centre was conceived as an urban container, within which art objects, events, acts, concepts and activities flourish. In this case the container is made out of intuitive images of ink-and-water.

While the site conditions also take part in the formation of spaces: since the site is cut into halves by an unexpected urban infrastructure (a flood pipeline), the 30-meter-wide outdoor space became the central courtyard for spatial organization, around it seat the east and west exhibition halls and the floating bridge linking the two parts. In the 80-meter-long concrete bridge, the ink-water stroke texture coincides with the necessary structural elements for the 5.5-meter-high concrete hollow beam. This becomes an interesting moment when an image merges seamlessly with a structure.
标准营造 1999年是由张轲、张弘、Claudia Taborda等多位年轻设计师,创建于纽约,是一家专业从事建筑设计、景观与城市设计、室内设计及产品设计的合伙人事务所。

张轲访谈

domus:为何以“标准营造”为名?
张轲:我们喜欢这个名字,一方面因为它是一个更加中性的词,不暗示任何形式上的东西。另一方面,我们将“标准”与“营造”合成一个词,表明我们更加关注建筑的本质。老一代的施工队,叫营造厂。从这个角度来讲,我们更加关注建造和建造过程中的新的发现,

Auditorium Wuyi primary school 
The new auditorium has a seating capacity of 520 and is for the use of both the school and the residents of the adjacent neighborhood. The hall is used for stage performances, films and school events. The auditorium is separated from the school by a square yard. The school is an unobtrusive four-storey block, to which the expressive form of the auditorium forms a strong contrast. Its characteristic folded red roof makes it a striking feature of the neighborhood.
武夷小学礼堂
小学的新礼堂有520座的容积,除供学校使用外,还可以满足临近居住社区的需求。新礼堂可以举行舞台演出、放电影和学校的其他集体活动。礼堂与学校的教学主楼之间被一个矩形的广场分开,使礼堂特立独行的形象与不够突出的四层教学楼形成了强烈的对比。性格化的红色翻折屋面使礼堂成为跳出周围环境的醒目特征。

Winkelcomplex Yangshuo
Het complex met winkels op de begane grond en woningen daarboven ligt in het centrum van de kleine toeristenstad Yangshuo. De stad wordt in her oosten begrensd door de Lijiang-rivier, aan de drie overage zijden door bijzondere karstbergen. Aan het ontwerp is eerst een studie naar lokaal materiaalgebruik en bouwtechnieken voorafgegaan. Aangezien de beschikbare locatie te groot bleek voor één gebouw, besloot Standardarchitecture het programma in een aantal kleinere gebouwen met daartussen smalle straten onder te brengen. In de lay-out is rekening gehouden met de locale traditie om vanuit de belangrijkste stegen zicht te houden op de omliggende bergen, in dit geval op de Groene Lotus-berg en de Drakenhoofd-berg. In dit project heft Standardarchitecture voornamelijk geëxperimenteerd met de constructiemoge-lijkheden van locale materialen. Hiervoor zijn vier materialen gebruikt: een blauwgroene steen, larikshout, kleine zwarte dakpannen en bamboerepen. De experimenteerdrift is het duidelijkst zichtbaar bij de centrale hal. Het gebouw heft met een scherm van bamboerepen een tweede huid gekregen; de repen staan op enige afstand van elkaar haaks op de muur en geven een zeer bijzonder visueel effect aan de façade.

Standardarchitecture in perspective 
Toward History: The studio of standardarchitecture is hidden within an old Sinica warehouse sandwiched between Tsinghua and Beijing University campus. During past half decade, standardarchitecture moved from a rented residential apartment to this current location, an exquisitely renovated large-span wooden structure built in the 1950’s with Soviet aid. The original architectural and landscape elements have been fully preserved or restored to its inherent essence. Their design intervention seems not want to affect the daily operations of the vicinity, and opts light in site planning and design. Such approach is a clear embodiment of standardarchitecture’s consistent attitude toward original information regarding the site. Maybe this attitude subtly manipulated their selections of projects, Projects such as  Beijing Dongbianmen City Wall Park, Beijing White Pagoda, historical community of Yangshuo, and Xian City Wall Landscape, nonetheless exemplify a re-intervention of design to site’s history.
对待历史――标准营造的工作室,藏匿于清华、北大之间的科学院某厂院内的一处闲置仓库。5年来,“标准营造”从最初起步时租用的住宅楼,到落脚在这座经过标准营造精心改造的50年代苏联援建的大跨度木屋架建筑里,地段里原有的建筑与景观元素被充分地保持或恢复了它固有的气质,新置入的设计似乎是不希望影响到周围一切日常般运行,从选址到设计都是轻质的。这无疑体现了“标准营造”一贯以来对于地段原有信息的一种态度。

STANDARDARCHITECTURE STUDIO SPACE, BEIJING, CHINA, 2005 
ARCHITECTS: standardarchitecture
The project is the conversion of a rundown 1950's Soviet time brick auditorium into standardarchitecture's own design studio space. The site is in a factory compound adjacent to the campuses of Beijing University and Tsinghua University. Measured about 350 sqm in its size, the building's function has been shifted from movie theatre, dining hall, classroom, warehouse to gymnasium. The conversion design tends to re-adept the building for the new function in a subtle way.

ABSTRACT Standardarchitecture's work CRLand Art Centre conceived as a container of arts, within which art objects, events, acts, concepts and activities flourish. The coherence of the site is abruptly interrupted by an unusual urban condition, hence the consequential design's visual revelation of the physical presence of the underground infrastructure. The design involves the play of ink-water from calligraphy as a joyfui mental reverie to explore the elasticity of the boundary between archite and art.

The old city wall at Dongbianmen is Beijing's only remaining section of ifs Ming Dynasty City Wall. An international competition, organized by Beijing Planning Committee, was held recently in search of ideas to make a cultural landscape park on the site. The competition has drawn quite a few proposals. Among them, the scheme submitted collaboratively by Standard Architecture and Urban Planning & Design Institute of Tsinghua won the support of the entire jury. The proposal, as concluded by the selecting committee, put an emphasis on the preservation and revelation of the site's historical layers; and successfully created a place in which the meaning of the wall as a historic landmark is self-evident; at the same time, provided feasible solutions for problems of transportation, environment and maintenance. The proposal has now been accepted for realization. The first article here provides a detailed analysis of the project's background. The second is a reflection on the project, provided by the designer, from angles of architecture, landscape, urban planning and historic preservation. In the end, another article also gives a brief introdution on the project which won the third prize in this competition. 

Key words: Historic preservation, Cultural landscape, Urban fabric, City life, Intervention, Coexist, Weave
