Paper temple a new core of Longshang village

 

Junyuan Chen:

“In 2010, a well known Chinese architect designed a handicraft paper museum in Longshang village, the southwest of China. The curiosity of how design influence the developing rural area driven me to there. After several interviews with villagers, a gap between museum and locals reveals itself to me. Due to the occupying of the site of the demolished ancestor temple, and the misunderstanding of the meaning of cultural institution. There is a needs of a public space which the villagers can feel a sense of belonging. More discover-ies emerged in the following days,the village doesn’t have an underground sew-age system; Locals use polluted water for daily activities; In the centre of the vil-lage, a government built a “playground” has been used as a parking lot, since it was always empty. Combine all the research conclusions, I intended to give the temple back to the villagers in a different way. The design takes advantage of the government finan-cial support on wastewater purification infrastructure combining it with a multi-functional public space. Therefore, Paper Temple helps to recreate the missing society’s core in the once empty parking lot. A wetlands wastewater treatment system has been chosen as the basis of my de-sign. It able to collect the polluted water and purifying it for the use of paper-making cleaning processes. Moreover, other two procedures require heat are combined in one structure to share the energy. The same structure will supports the public space above. The waste-heat will be collected on the top and used as heating for the interior. To recreate a familiar social environment for the villag-ers, and ensure a high construction quality, I plan to use local material and craftsmanship. In this way, I try to put what is made by villagers’ hand in the most important position in the village in the meantime let the building no longer a resource consumer but a generator.”
