美国,内华达西斯地下城/Matsys

Matsys设计事务所设计的内华达西斯(Sietch Nevada, 注)地下城方案是对世界水枯竭预期,尤其是问题严重的美国西南部的一个解决设想。由于过多的注意力放在了石油战争上,热门经常忽视了慢慢流逝的水资源,尽管水比油要重要了千万倍。这个未来主义的城市形态宣布了一种新的水资源地位:地下复杂的河道网络为人们提供了一种保护措施;“储存、使用和收集水资源对城市形式和其间的生活方式起到至关重要的作用”。

译者注:Sietch Nevada的名字来源于美国科幻小说家弗兰克·赫伯特(Frank Herbert,1920-1986)的小说《沙丘》(Dune),其中Sietch是书中弗莱人(Fremen)居住的洞穴聚居区,也作为危害发生时的避难之所。 Sieth – Cave warren inhabited by a Fremen tribal community; in the Fremen language, "Place of assembly in time of danger.(来自维基百科

 

 

此方案使得该区域的地下现有水资源储备不仅仅是干旱季节后援。事实上,内华达西斯地下城方案将水资源储备转变成为这个新城市概念的建筑单元。稠密的地下社区凭借连接地下城市蓄水层的河道构成。这些河道不仅提供了交通,也解决了农业灌溉。大洞穴的细胞形式产生了一种全新的邻里类型关系,实现了地下城市网络和地表面活动(包括水收集、能源生产以及城市农业和水产业)的调和。

一些国家可能很快摆脱目前的水资源困境,但是某些国家即将因水而发起的战争将是不可避免的。水对人类生存是必不可少的,我们必须在水问题成为主要危机前就给予足够重视并找到解决方式。

Designed by Matsys Designs, Sietch Nevada is a response to the idea of a water-poor world becoming a reality, especially in the American Southwest. With so much of the press focused on wars over oil, the world is often unaware of the slowly depleting water sources, which are indeed exponentially more valuable than oil. This futuristic urban prototype addresses the water situation as a complex underground network of tunnels and canals offers protection and the “storage, use, and collection of water essential to the form and performance of urban life.”

The scheme makes the existing underground water banks in the area become more than just back up tanks for droughts. In fact, the Sietch Nevada turns these water banks into the building blocks of their new city idea. A dense underground community forms around canals which connect the city with vast aquifers, provide transportation, and agricultural irrigation. The cellular form of these caverns “constitute a new neighborhood typology that mediates between the subterranean urban network and the surface level activities of water harvesting, energy generation, and urban agriculture and aquaculture.”

Some may quickly dismiss the current water situation, yet water will inevitably be the next thing countries will wage wars over. And, as water is necessary for us to survive as a species, we must address the issue and find potential solutions before the problem becomes a major crisis.
