德国基尔 | Kiel, Germany
MVRDV has been selected as the designer of a 65,000-square-metre mixed-use complex that will redevelop a post-industrial site in Kiel, Germany. The proposal, which includes a hotel, offices, residences, commercial space, and an event space, makes use of a flexible design system, rather than a fixed and unchangeable plan, allowing the design to adapt easily to the needs and desires of the community as the design development progresses.
概念 | Concept
该项目被称为“KoolKiel”，位于Kiel峡湾最南端附近的一个以前的工业区。现为一幢大型单层建筑物，原本用作存放船舶链条;然而，近年来，这个地方因为与德国著名的沃纳漫画(Werner comics)产生联系而变得更加引人注目。沃纳漫画是上世纪80年代初在这栋楼里印刷的。这栋建筑现在被称为W8 Medienzentrum，是多家主要(但不完全)从事媒体和创意产业的公司的总部。这些租户为该区域赋予了独特而富有魅力的身份，这强烈影响了MVRDV随后的设计。
Dubbed “KoolKiel”, the proposal is located in a formerly industrial area in Kiel, near the southernmost tip of the Kiel Fjord. Currently it is occupied by a large, single-storey building, which was originally used for storing chains for ships; however, in more recent times this location has become more notable for its connection to Germany’s famous Werner comics, which were printed in the building from the early 1980s. The building is now known as W8 Medienzentrum, and is home to a variety of companies working mostly (but not exclusively) in media and the creative industries. This collection of tenants has given the area a unique and charismatic identity, which strongly influenced MVRDV’s subsequent design.
The proposal calls to retain the existing structure of the W8 Medienzentrum as commercial units, topping it with apartments. Next to this, a new building is proposed with a zig-zagging plinth containing offices and shops, topped by several cubic blocks of housing, and a small tower of office spaces. At the end of the site, a 250-room hotel tower connects to the aforementioned plinth through a public event space, which will be used to host exhibitions and events organised by the community.
Lively exterior spaces are key to the project: a courtyard between the buildings filled with a variety of street furniture for the residents to occupy, while a rooftop park snakes its way around the three cubic blocks of housing. The project’s most eye-catching element is the façade panels, made from fibre reinforced concrete, which sit in front of the window and display a variety of icons inspired by the creative output of the locals.
However, within this arrangement, the design proposal includes many opportunities for community input. By considering the design not as a fixed concept but as a flexible system, the building as it is eventually constructed might fall anywhere on a spectrum of options, from a conservative series of boxes to a wacky yet charismatic collection of cantilevers and iconography. This flexible design system includes options to change the size and number of cantilevers on the hotel tower (with the option to have no cantilevers also available), to change how much of the building is covered by pictographic panels, and to alter the size, number, and layout of apartments placed above the existing W8 building.
MVRDV的负责人兼联合创始人雅各布·范·里杰斯(Jacob van Rijs)说:“在这样一个充满活力和创意的现有社区，社区显然应该在这一发展中拥有发言权。”“KoolKiel不仅受到了他们的启发，而且还让他们能够根据自己的意愿调整方案——我们不仅为他们提供了一个设计方案，还向他们提出了一个问题:‘你想要怎样的方案?’”
“In a location with such a dynamic and creative existing community, it’s obvious that the community should have a say in this development,” said Jacob van Rijs, principal and cofounder of MVRDV. “KoolKiel is not only inspired by them, but it also allows them to tailor the proposal to their wishes—we’re presenting them with not just a design, but also a question: ‘how ‘Kool’ do you want it?’”
