a collaborative initiative between the netherlands architecture institute (NAi) and vanke real estate developer, this residential district featured at the exhibition ‘housing with a mission, dutch and chinese architects design for the ant tribe’ curated by ole bouman and co-curated by jorn konijn. the pavilion has received a first place award from the shenzhen & hong kong bi-city biennale of urbanism \ architecture in shenzhen, china, for its contributions to chinese architecture. divided into ten plots, this masterplan for the hui long guan site incorporates low-income residential blocks designed by netherland-based practices arons & gelauff architects, barcode architects, KCAP architects and planners, NEXT architects, NL architects, and china-based NODE, o-office architects, standardarchitecture, URBANUS, and a joint submission by A-9 studio and CAFA university.

the sheltered public theater-like forum with steps serves as a public living room for the community. the interior units are divided with wide walls which contain the infrastructure, appliances and services to maximize free space within the rooms.

the firm’s construction principle of ‘thinner & thinner’ led to a configuration which expands the interior despite limited floor area. derived from picasso’s cubism paintings, the shifted facade offers views of the landscape in all directions.
