Micro-Hutong is a building experiment by Zhang Ke’s standardarchitecture team on the YangMeiZhu street of Dashilar area. The goal of the project is to search for possibilities of creating ultra-small scale social housing within the limitations of super-tight traditional hutong spaces of Beijing...
Located on a corner plot, the Café is composed of two major elements: a main building with a big horizontal roof made of bamboo structure and an annex kitchen made of concrete frames and stones. The main building has a rectangular plan surrounded by a shallow artificial lake. All elevations are open to the air [...] By providing shadow under the bamboo roof and maximizing the cool air flow across the water surface of the lake, the open-air indoor space successfully operates without using air conditioning even in a tropical climate...
The construction of this building adopted and developed the techniques of the Tibetan vernacular. On top of the concrete foundation a 600mm thick load-bearing wall is erected. Most openings have deep recessions. The 400mm thick walls at both sides of the openings work as buttresses, increasing the overall structural stability and reducing the interior span as well. Beams for bigger spans are made from several small logs bonded together. A 150mm thick layer of Aga clay covers the waterproof membrane...

Respectful of its surroundings, the building is organised in a succession of cubes. The intervals remind the passerby of the ’’fenestras’’ in the Aveyron and gives way to contemplation. Orientated towards the garden, the southern wall does not exceed three meters whilst on the the northern side of the site, the ‘’boxes’’ overlook a pathway.
The museum will take the fragility of the collections into account. Arranged in practical volumes around a monitored light, it will provide obscured and protected areas for papers (Walnut Stains, printed works), whereas the five high ’’boxes’’ will harbour the paintings and the cardboards of Conques’ stained-glass windows under a zenithal light.
Villa Glicini si presentava come un edificio residenziale d’inizio Novecento, senza particolare pregio architettonico ma sicuramente costruito con grazia nelle proporzioni e in alcune finiture e tecniche che appartenevano al periodo del liberty. Una casetta come tante inserita in un interessante giardino...
