The issue of the urban regeneration in the classical city of Beijing is still without clear response. The population density downtown is one of the major problems of the city. Formerly structured around a clear empty square space, the courtyard now finds itself colonized by a multitude of micro self constructed buildings because of the spaces needs. The morphology of the urban space is completely transformed by these grafts, which make almost unreadable the old structure.

The project attempts to provide an alternative to this situation by proposing a modest and economic intervention in order to reveal the quality of existing space. Therefore our first task is to destroy these additions to redefine a new void. Our extension, necessary, the old shacks is placed in the spirit of composition of the original urban space by defining a classic courtyard. The project includes three interventions: rehabilitation of the existing building, new extension and the treatment of the courtyard.

The architectural expression is detached from the stylistic and mimesis approach but we find our references in the material and form of the past that we transform. We can see these actions on the roof geometry or the opening system that is inspired by the openings in the summer palace.

    goo.gl does have an API, but it only supports JSON calls, not plain text like most of the other URL sterrhones. I will be adding goo.gl to the next major release of the plugin though, all the URL shortener stuff will be built into the leenk.me plugin User Interface.Lew
