Pedestrian block renovation: weaving street system

The extension of the interrupted spatial system of streets and lanes makes the new block and ziyang block organically suture, and several streets of different status are woven together into a vibrant organism.


The site is located in linhai city, zhejiang province, it has always been an important town in the east of zhejiang province. Now it is famous for its leisurely pace of life and rich historical and cultural heritage.

Located at the foot of the southern wall of the ancient city, the ziyang block is the most complete area of historical and cultural heritage in the ancient city, and has always been a tourist attraction.According to the new urban plan, the area will continue to develop tourism while preserving its cultural heritage.As a result, several large apartments built in the early days of the founding of the People's Republic of China have been demolished due to the destruction of the local cultural landscape and functional incompatibility.One of the starting points of the case was to rebuild the site along the old street and make it an extension of the block, continuing to provide public space for tourists and local residents.

The ancient city had complete walls built during the Anti-Japanese War in the Ming dynasty.Later, the eastern section of the wall was dismantled, and the other three sides remained intact. The wall is an important framework of the ancient city.At the same time, the west side of ziyang block basically maintained the pattern of streets and lanes in the late qing dynasty, while the east side was broken due to the insertion of massive buildings.

When tourists come to ziyang ancient street, what really attracts them is the local traditions and culture.The new district should serve the tourists, take into account the local residents' activities and cultural development, and make the area sustainable.

This case attempts to extend the original street and lane texture on the site, connecting the cultural and tourism resources on both sides of ziyang street, so as to make it a symbiotic and Shared organism between local residents and tourists.At the same time, several new pedestrian streets, which are parallel to and interdependent with ziyang street, are formed. Through the changes of different scales, paving surfaces and urban furniture, they have different positioning and provide corresponding space for different urban activities.

The elevated streets in the building create a new spatial experience and lift the street system off the ground and into the building.

I hope that the various activities in the ancient city can make the Spaces that are woven and attached to each other be positioned as the space where different activities take place, but at the same time belong to the same alley system.The neighborhood is supposed to serve both tourists and local residents.Let the new site into the ziyang ancient street, and ziyang ancient street into a complementary space.

Block Function and interest point around the site

The site is located at the back of ziyang street, facing the square in the east and the gate of the ancient city wall in the south. There are many points of interest around it. The residential area of local residents is also close to ziyangstreet.The interweaving of different user groups in this area creates an interesting cultural atmosphere.


Connect the two sides of the old street

Extend the flow of people on the ancient street to both sides, creating space for more tourists and residents.Let the site become the hinterland of the ancient street.


A system of streets and alleys cut off

Due to the current construction situation, it can be seen clearly that the street and lane system in the west of the ancient street is relatively complete, while the street and lane in the east are completely interrupted.


Provide community facilities and tourist facilities

As an extension of the ziyang neighborhood, the site will serve both tourists and residents, and functions for both groups will be equally important at the site.This will also create more organic and vibrant neighborhoods.


Rebuild the street system

The opportunity to rebuild the street system arose when the massive apartments that interrupted it were demolished.Tourist and public activity areas on both sides of ziyang street can be sewn up through the site.

The different street

The sewn and derived street lane system generates new street lane Spaces of different dimensions.Due to different dimensions and spatial forms, each street and lane space can provide space for more abundant public activities.Different streets and lanes are positioned as the site of different activities.It enhances the organic and dynamic character of the whole neighborhood.

Mapping the ancient city

This mapping views the space of the ancient city from both the perspective of local residents and tourists.From several sections, it can be seen that from the north to the south, the tourist character of the old city gradually increases until the ziyang neighborhood near the wall of the south city reaches its peak.At the same time, the city's residential nature is relatively strong in the north.This confirms that the cultural heritage of the southern part of the city is relatively intensive.At the same time, it also presents the opportunity of blending the two attributes in this region.
