當代MOMA


環保建築?對社區開放?這是建築師Steven Holl 在介紹 “當代MOMA”(又稱Linked Hybrid)時期中的賣點。這的建築群坐落在北京的東二環和北二環的拐彎點。去年在冰封的十二月我到裏面的電影院時第一次親眼看見它。雖然建築師說是對居民和附近社區開放的中央廣場能凝聚社區氣氛,但個人經驗告訴我事實并不如此。我每次進入廣場往中心的電影院途中皆有警衛問我去哪里。試想想是完全對社區開放的話,幹嘛問我去哪?又如果我穿得像個民工?又如果我外貌不像漢族?你們猜猜結果會怎樣?建築物的外觀是新鮮的,但它是環保或融合社區與否則有待時間的考驗。

Yea, this "當代MOMA" thingy, or Linked Hybrid, according to its architect Steven Holl is supposed to be environmentally friendly and equipped with a plaza that is OPEN to all, not just the residents of the complex. However, during my first séjour at the complex for some film screenings during two frigid winter days in December 2009, I was asked by security guards of my purpose being at the complex. That sure says a lot of the openess claimed by the architect in the description of its project. Yes, the complex won some award from the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat in 2009, but whether it is really environmentally friendly and open to the public remains to be proven in the future. Architectually, having grown up and lived in various cities with numerous skyscrapers, the merely visual stimulation was a breath of fresh air for me.
