墨西哥,墨西哥城,文化“外骨骼” / Zeller + Moye

“Archivo”是Zeller 和 MoyeFR-EE合作设计的一个开放空间,即将于2016年完成,这里将容纳各种各样充满活力的文化与设计活动,每层都有不同的功能。“Archivo”被设计为一个“外骨骼”的形式,面向周围环境敞开,旨在丰富墨西哥城的文化和社会生活。

文字来自建筑师。这座新建的文化综合体位于墨西哥城的中心,由临时展览空间、设计师作品的永久珍藏馆,以及教育和社区活动、社交活动和商业用途空间组成。“Archivo”将吸引本地游客和第一批瞅准时机的投资客,唤醒这个大都市中心未被发掘的区域,让它重新焕发活力。

本建筑被设计为一个毛坯状的外骨骼,面向周围的丛林植被开放。它就像一棵树,开放的结构由垂直柱和水平楼板构成,水平楼板提供了高度不同的露台,可欣赏公园和城市的风光。建筑共有六层,根据城市的不规则布局来确定朝向,可以沿着宽敞的螺旋楼梯一层一层地探索,这条螺旋楼梯沿着建筑周边折叠而上,穿行于每一层不同的功能空间。每一种功能空间都是一部分位于室内,另一部分则位于一个不寻常的半开放露台内,多亏了墨西哥城的温和气候,半开放露台每年都能使用。这些露台通过长长的开放型楼梯连接,创建了一个连续的开放区域,可以用于举办展览、社交活动或会议。这些活动从街道上和公园中清晰可见,给建筑的不同楼层都带来了生气。由远离楼板边缘的玻璃构成了这个纯粹的结构,提供了遮阳和私密性,同时在活跃的周边地带还有更多的公共功能。因而,建筑师建造了一座真正透明而又充满活力的建筑,并且将这种活力融入了周围的城市环境。

“Archivo设计与建筑”独家收藏了大量的设计作品,在只有玻璃围合的开放式画廊中展出,与由墙体围合的传统展览空间形成了鲜明的对照。这种开放的展览环境让游客在走近该建筑或从附近的道路经过时就能从远处欣赏到展品。“城市平台”作为展览的最终目的地位于顶层,这是一个公开的展览空间,内容关于墨西哥城的历史和未来,在这里还能饱览城市美景。

广泛的社会生活也是本项目必不可少的一部分。这座新建的多功能建筑为工作坊、舞蹈教室、社交活动以及城市农业的室外区域都提供了空间,充当了当地社区的一个新据点。


To be completed in 2016, 'Archivo' is an open space designed by Zeller & Moye in collaboration with FR-EE that will house a vibrant mix of cultural/design activities, with each floor given a different function. Designed as an "exoskeleton" that opens to its context, 'Archivo' aims to enrich the cultural and social life of Mexico City.

More on the project after the jump.

From the Architect. Located in the heart of Mexico City, the new cultural complex is made up of spaces for temporary exhibitions, a permanent collection of designer pieces, as well as a space for educational and community activities, social events and commercial use. 'Archivo' will attract both local visitors and first timers, bringing new life and regenerating energy in this undiscovered area in the center of the metropolis.

The building is designed as a rough exoskeleton that opens to the surrounding jungle vegetation. Like a tree, the open structure consists of vertical pillars and horizontal slabs that offer terraces at different levels with views of the park and the city. Its six levels, oriented according to the irregular layout of the city, can be explored through the generous spiral path that unfolds along the perimeter of the building and wanders through various functions at each level. Each function is partially located inside, with a section situated under an unusual semi-open covered terrace, which can be  used annually thanks to Mexico City's moderate climate. The terraces are connected through long open stairs, creating a continuous open area that can be appropriated by its users for exhibitions, social events or meetings. These activities, clearly visible from the street and from the park, enliven the different floors of the building. The purist structure is completed with glass facades away from the edge of the slabs to provide shade and privacy, while the more public functions occur along the activated perimeter. This results in a truly transparent and vibrant building that emanates into the town around it.

'Archivo Design and Architecture' is an exclusive and vast collection of design objects to be exhibited in open galleries bounded only by glass, in clear opposition to the traditionally walled exhibition space. This open condition allows visitors to enjoy views of the exhibition from a distance when approaching the building or passing by via the nearby public route. As a final destination, The "Terrace of the City," a publicly accessible exhibition on the history and future of the City of Mexico, located on the top level, enjoys a backdrop of panoramic views.

The broad spectrum of community life is an integral part of the project. This new multi-functional building provides space for workshops, dance classes, socialization, as well as outdoor areas for urban agriculture, and serves as a new destination for the local community.
