社會訴求Statement of Needs

 

我們進入了一個新紀元,而香港正在轉型。若香港要在廿一世紀繼續保持繁榮安定,我們需要一群關心社會的市民和專業人仕,一群願意對他們身處的社會作出貢獻的領袖及有心人。將社會上各個階層有著這夥心的人仕聯繫組織起來實為必要。

資訊科技,全球經濟、政局轉變和科技發展形成我們對教育、經濟、社會和人文生活新的要求。而面對社會由工業為主走向資訊為主的轉型,我們的教育理念也得轉變,以期協助我們的年輕人自我實現,成為有價值的市民。這方面會從教育建築研究探討上反映,以期配合教育改革。

我們年輕的一代需要擴闊他們的視野和發展他們各方面的潛能。再者,他們也得對未來有抱負、有方向,這樣他們就需要明暸過去並且關懷一個增長中的社會的群體──長者。這方面會在新的長者建築研究規劃探討上反胦。

很多現代發展項目消耗大量能源,又或者室內外環境令用家感到不舒適。本中心承諾對建築設計作出研究,以期配合本土經濟、居民生活習慣和週遭環境因素。其實,這些「新」的意念是從一固有的氣候環境建築設計方法萌生的,目的是針對南中國亞熱帶潮濕天氣來設計出一些適合本地氣候的環保建築物,並且能配合本土建築歷史及科技。

發掘、研究和設計創新的重點包括以下各方面:
分析環境表現特性,
評估高密度市區環境的影響,
找出建築物反映氣候因素、法例規條的限制和本地文化因素的程度。

優環長學建築研究中心隸屬於建築設計+研究所,是由一群有心於卓越建築設計在香港以及中華地區的發展的人仕組成。創會成員包括建築師以及大學教授,他們在過去幾年一直致力於建築與大眾的聯系。建築設計+研究所與及優環長學建築研究中心均深信卓越建築設計和高質素可持續發展社區環境對社會各個成員的重要性,所以我們提出「未來環境今日實現」的願望,以期締造一個新典範,把社區需要和期望融合在環境設計考慮過程中。

 

 

The world has entered a new century. Hong Kong is going through a transitional period. For Hong Kong to survive and prosper into the 2lst century, the community needs caring citizens and professionals who will be team players and effective leaders: citizens who are willing to contribute to the society and environment that they share. We need to foster an integration of all these sectors of our community.

Information technology, the global economy, political changes and scientific advancement have created new parameters for education, economic, social and intellectual life. A shift from an industrial society to an information society necessitates a shift in emphasis in our education to help our young people become self-fulfilled and productive citizens. This will be reflected in an exploration and research for new education architecture to respond to the reforms in education.

Our young generation must expand their mental horizons and develop their potential as well rounded individuals. In addition, in order to have a vision and direction for the future, it is necessary for young people to understand the past as well as care for the elderly _ a growing sector of our community. This will be reflected in an exploration and research for a new architecture and planning for the elderly.

Many of recent developments consume enormous amount of energy, or result in thermal discomfort. CARE declares to explore building design in response to the local economy, people's living habits and the environmental context. Emerging out of these "new" ideas is in fact an "old" approach of designing with climate - to pursue permeable climate-responsive building design for the sub-tropic and humid Southern China, with the goal of integrating architectural history, science and technologies.

The key issues to explore, research and innovate design include evaluation of environmental performance patterns, high-density urban context implications, and degree of climatic response, statutory implications and local cultural factors.

The Centre of Architectural Research for Education, Elderly, Environment and Excellence Ltd (CARE) was founded by a group of individuals interested and concerned with the development of architectural excellence in Hong Kong and China, under the Architecture Design + Research Group Ltd. Original subscribers include architects and university professors involved in the last few years to connect the public with architecture. Committed to excellence in architecture and the ideal of a high-quality sustainable environment for the community from children to elders, AD+RG /CARE's aim is to establish "Tomorrow's Environment Today" _ embarking a new paradigm of integrating the community into their environment decision processes.
