Walden 7 瓦爾登7

Walden 7 is a project implementing some of Ricardo Bofill’s earliest ambitions and addressing most of the problems of modern city life. It is located on the same lot as Taller de Arquitectura, based in the refurbished ruins of an old cement factory. The housing structure benefits from Bofill’s earlier research and the idea of providing public spaces and gardens for residents to enjoy an enhanced quality of living.

Walden 7是一個實施Ricardo Bofill最早野心並解決現代城市生活大部分問題的項目。 它與Taller de Arquitectura位於同一地段,位於舊水泥廠的翻新廢墟中。 住房結構得益於Bofill早期的研究以及為居民提供公共空間和花園以提高生活質量的想法。

The building consists of a fourteen story cluster of apartments grouped around five courtyards, on top of which are two swimming pools. With a few exceptions, each apartment looks onto both the exterior and one of the interior courtyards. At several levels there is a complex system of bridges and balconies for access, producing a fantastic variety of vistas and enclosures.

該建築由四個圍繞五個庭院組成的十四層公寓組成,其頂部是兩個游泳池。 除了少數例外,每間公寓都可以看到外部和一個內部庭院。 在幾個層面上有一個複雜的橋樑和陽台系統可供使用,可以產生各種各樣的遠景和外殼。

The exterior facade has the appearance of a huge fortification completely painted in red. It is opened to the exterior through large overtures such as urban windows several stories in height. The courtyards have a lively treatment because of the intense blue, violet and yellow colored facade. The main courtyard, located at the building’s entrance, is an extension of the street and the plaza for the use of the inhabitants.

外立面具有完全塗成紅色的巨大防禦工事的外觀。 它通過諸如城市窗戶等幾個高層的大型建築物向外開放。 庭院擁有生動的待遇,因為藍色,紫色和黃色的外觀非常強烈。 主庭院位於大樓的入口處,是街道和廣場的延伸,供居民使用。

The organization of spaces is of wide variety. The units consist of different combinations of 30sqm units distributed over one or two floors. Dwellings range from single module studios to four module apartments.

空間的組織種類繁多。 這些單元包括分佈在一層或兩層的30平方米單元的不同組合。 住宅範圍從單模塊工作室到四個模塊公寓。

The most interesting aspect of the project is the atypical way in which the housing block is approached. Eighteen towers, seven courtyards, a modular but unsystematic grid, and extensive public space create a vertical labyrinth with no repetitiveness or uniformity.

該項目最有趣的方面是接近住宅區的非典型方式。 18個塔樓,7個庭院,模塊化但非系統的網格和廣闊的公共空間創造了一個沒有重複性或均勻性的垂直迷宮。
