获奖建筑项目盖成大楼| 2017年2月16日

我近期有机会返回加尔各答参加一场里程碑活动。在2006年,曾萌生过将钢结构住房引入印度的想法。我们以钢结构建筑项目为名义委托举办了一次国际建筑大赛。

大赛邀请了全明星阵容的裁判从来自全球各地的参赛选手中决选中最优提案。评判委员会成员包括格伦-马库特(Glenn Murcutt)、查尔斯-科雷亚(Charles Correa)、杰米-勒纳(Jaime Lerner)、詹姆斯-贝里(James Berry)、安德鲁-奥格萨(Andrew Ogorzalek)和尼古拉斯-德-蒙察克斯(Nicholas de Monchaux)。如果您对建筑学、设计、施工和城市生活有了解,您将会知道他们都是在各自领域认真做事的人。

评判委员会评出了由Piercy Conner Architects(现名Piercy & Company)提交的设计。在代表评判委员会发表讲话时,马库特(Murcutt )先生说道:“该方案的简约明亮令评判委员会叹服……尤其是确保每个空间都充分通风的强大理念给各位裁判留下了深刻印象……另外……该方案同时兼顾开放与私密的可能性同样令人赞叹。”

有时,建筑项目需要经历漫长过程才会取得成果。开发商本哥尔-斯拉奇(Bengal Shrachi)名为“Restello”的获奖设计正是如此。不过,如果您要重塑住房建设及引进新技术,最好还是要花时间来确保设计是正确的。

这就引回我为什么返回加尔各答这个问题上。返回的目的是为了参加Restello大楼的落成仪式。Restello大楼是一座由12间高端公寓组成的定制设计钢结构住宅建筑物,盖板为复合钢/混凝土,内部框架为轻量型钢,外部第二层立面采用穿孔钢,这在印度乃至整个世界都是独一无二的。

返回印度参加落成仪式使我有机会亲眼见证这座由那个原始概念设计成长出来的建筑物。在参观建筑物的过程中,令我印象深刻的正是评判委员会所指出的通风空间及开放/私密兼顾的设计。在提供充分开放视觉的同时,冲孔钢第二层立面的利用又隔绝了外部街道的喧嚣,营造出静谧之感,同时还形成一层热障,帮助降低内部温度,并为居住者提供在阳台休憩的空间。

期待听取您对钢铁给世界各地可持续住宅带来贡献的评论。

Sometimes construction projects take a long time to come to fruition. And this was the case for the winning design named ‘Restello’ by the developer Bengal Shrachi. But when you are looking to reinvent housing construction and introduce new technology, it’s best to take time to make sure it’s right.

Which brings me back to why I went back to Kolkata. I went to participate in the inauguration of the Restello building. Consisting of 12 high-end apartments with a steel framed structure, composite steel/concrete decking, light gauge steel interior framing and an exterior second skin of perforated steel, Restello is a custom designed residence unique not only to India, but to the world.

My return to India for the ceremony provided me a chance to see the building that grew out of that original concept design. As I toured the building, the thing that stuck in my mind was the ventilation space and open/closed zones as identified by the competition jury. There is a sense of openness, yet with the perforated steel second façade, there is also a sense of privacy from the bustling street outside. The façade provides privacy, a thermal break to reduce interior temperatures, and provides a space for people to sit outside on the terrace.

I look forward to reading your opinions on how steel contributes to sustainable housing.
