[FFF.WVA]
Hong Kong constantly reinvents itself through a series of rapid disappearance and resurrections of all things temporal. How does a space acquire meanings and gain tractions in the society of which it serves before it expires? Wanchai Visual Archive (WVA) and Fashion Farm Foundation (FFF) explore this issue by rejuvenating the spaces inside two of the prototypical building types, the ubiquitous tenement houses and factory buildings.
WVA attempts to document and archive the culture of the immediate neighborhood through workshops, seminars, and exhibitions through its two years of existence as an institution. Through the use of a unique numbering system, the vertical stair tower of the 6-storey building is transformed into a building of infinite floors, connecting the street life and the rooftop activities. While at FFF the horizontality of factory space is exploited to its fullest with the creation of a 30-meter long multifunctional space that allows seminars, workshops, pop-up shops, and fashion shows for the community of young aspiring designers. Through the support of FFF, the young designers' presence is deliberately transient in this space, ensuring the successions of generations after the first comers spin off on their own.
[橫直重建]
香港都市日新月異,所有東西包括建築在內都以一個很短的週期消失及重現。在這個以不斷變化為宗旨的社區中,空間的重塑及復興的意義何在?灣仔視集(WVA)及Fashion Farm Foundation (FFF時裝農場) 以出現在兩座香港隨處可見的舊建築中--唐樓及工廠大廈--的設計來對此思考。
WVA探討在兩年的期限內以一個與社區互動的文化培育場所作引子,帶出空間消失前文化存檔成集體回憶的可能性。空間設計上利用唐樓的主樓梯為軸,以一個跳層的數字系統連接起街區,房間,及天台活動場所,創造出一個仿似有無盡房間的垂直空間經驗。FFF則開發工廠橫向大空間的原始特質,建造一條三十米長的「車間」,提供給年青時裝設計師一個集工作,開會,研討會,pop-up店,及時裝表演走道的橫向多功能空間。這個彈性空間對年青設計師意義上是有意地短暫而易變的,通過FFF的支持,他們走向及走出更遠。
在它們舊時代的表面痕跡背後,你有否好奇過唐樓及工廠大廈裏隱藏着一個怎樣的世界?藉WVA及FFF這兩個重建項目,我們邀請你通過這個裝置探頭探腦,窺視探索一下。
