Building as a Miniature City

Hebei Education Publishing House, Hebei, 2004

Yung Ho CHANG / Atelier Feichang Jianzhu

The publishing house itself needs only three stories of space. Yet the lively real estate market in China and the high cost of land have driven the company to construct a twelve-story building and develop rental office space, conference and exhibition facilities, a hotel, restaurant, café, bookstore—even an art museum and an indoor basketball court. This hybrid use inspires and informs the architectural design: The structure is thus dissolved into three relatively independent micro-buildings. The publishing house is located on the top floor, with rental office space and commercial activities below. The spaces between the micro-buildings are open to the public and form a vertical urban garden while also serving as a fire escape. This very urban quality of the in between space pushes the edifice towards a miniature city.
