Program: Theatre
Location: Dongguang, China
Period: 2016

Jianyuzhou Island is an abandoned territory located on Dongjiang River, Dongguan. In the 90s when Dongguan grown rapidly into a city, the island became the center of fertilizer production in China. With the decline of traditional industry, the factory buildings have become a ruin. However, in the eyes of local administration, the island is the opposite of future, more like a burden in urban development.
In recent years, industrial renovation has emerged into a design trend in China. All of a sudden, those abandoned industries become valuable, and they attract huge investments, which then attract attentions of architects. We have witnessed the emergence of numerous renovation projects. This trend brings positive aspects, which changed people’s ways of life and seeing things. While some otherpeople will argue this trend is no more than another cliché in fast urbanization.
Factory is a container of production activities. It is rather flexible in itself. We move quite straight-forward in this design: we restore what is already there without touching the main structures. The open towards outside is inserted into an open-air courtyard to fill up into a whole body. The studies on the scale of theatrical activities enable not only the space to be expanded, but also the possibilities of activities, such as rehearsals, forum and exhibitions, etc.
Two special modes deserved to be mentioned:

  1. Outdoor concert scenario: when movable separate walls are opened, the courtyard will allow the installation of temporary stage. The structure becomes the stage and the city becomes the auditorium. The changing installation can be seen as action arts.
  2. Super theater scenario:when all exterior walls are closed and all interior walls are open, the interior space becomes a grand hall with 2,500 floor area, accommodating management of new and imaginative forms activities.

In our imagination, it is not one theater, but many theaters. It is a space with mix activities, mix people, and mix values.


We call it MIX THEATER.

东莞鳒鱼洲剧场地块改造

近年来,“工业改造”忽然摇身一变成为流行词汇。许多废旧厂房资源吸引了有实力的资本,也吸引了建筑行业,进而产生了大批工业改造的项目,这个变化带来了积极效果,使普通民众开始对生活方式,审美意识有了改变,这显而易见;但有人也怀疑,这种趋势一纵即逝,最终会沦为时尚潮流的陈词滥调。
厂房本来就是容纳生产的空间,本身足够灵活。我们在这个设计中采取的态度很直接,不对原有结构做大幅改动,而是简单清理和修复,仅在原有厂房在南侧,完全朝外部打开的界面新增一个半开敞的“院子”,相当于做了一个“完形”的动作。我们对剧场的空间所需的尺度进行了研究,这个简单的“完形”的介入,不仅对原有的空间起到了扩展,同时也展开了多种活动的可能,如排练,论坛,展览等。
其中,两种特殊的模式值得一提:

  1. 举行大型露天音乐会的场景:活动门打开,院子可以搭建舞台临时构件,建筑转换成舞台,城市转换成观众厅。大尺度的舞台建构活动也可视作一种城市尺度行为艺术。
  2. 室内超级剧场场景:所有外部活动门关闭,内部活动门打开,室内转变成一个2500平方米的内部环境。适应多种新形式的活动。

在我们的想象中,这里不仅仅是一座剧场,而是多个剧场,多元复合的活动在此发生,人群和价值观在此交汇。


我们称这里为“MIX 剧场。”
