The village in which the project is located is adjacent to Changtai Mayangxi Scenic Spot, Fujian, China, surrounded by forest land. The landform is mainly characterized by sloping fields, with good overlying vegetation. The project land is bordered by the Tourism Avenue in the west, and by the urban planned road in the south.
This contest intends to create a touristic focal point for this area. There will be six proposed design projects, with the site centering on the valley. The south and north sides are cut off by the planned road. A theme inn and a forest kindergarten are planned at the north side. To the south there will be an artist workshop village centering on the culture pavilion. A series of buildings will be constructed along the valley and near the mountain, extending to the south to link to the original symbiotic villages. Houses in the bamboo grove are used for lodges, study rooms, workshops and fairyland. They will carry children’s laughter, tell the wishes of the nature, blend in the water and mountain, and generate a unique rural maker settlement together with the nature.
Designers are kindly requested to take respect for nature into full account. We advocate symbiotic buildings and the height limit is not more than 2 floors. In the specific construction, we wish to reserve more characteristics of the site, respect the veins of the site, and apply more natural elements and materials.
We wish the participating design teams to apply the idea of nature and symbiosis to create excellent products with bamboo elements, while considering actual operation through crossover cooperation with makers, so as to make the final rural maker settlement a model village that can be operated with greater emphasis on contents than on form, allowing industrial innovation.
Entrants should select at least three proposed projects below to design according to the village planning:
Proposed project 1: Bamboo Brook Culture Pavilion
Proposed project 2: Artist Workshop Village
Proposed project 3: Children’s Courtyard (Forest Kindergarten)
Proposed project 4: The Valley Library
