The structure of China industrial company is quite different, because the company had many other related service only available to people who work there and their family, such as kindergarten, college, food factory, theatre, apartments and etc. That is the culture and social contents of a typical industrial company. It is also the characteristic of socialism of China. Like what Tschumi said, the social relevance and formal invention of architecture cannot be dissociate from the event that happen in it. It’s also related to what Cedric Price had done for the Fun Place that the architecture should be highly adaptable to the shifting culture and social condition of its time and place. In order to apply those social life into the site, I’m trying to study the scale and space of different types of programs. Since it’s about reusing an industrial site, there is always conflict about the scale of factories and space we experience during daily life. The “must-fit“ and “mis-fit“ of programs and scales are the experiment to examplify the possibilities of transforming social life narrative to re-develop of the site.
