Existing Ceramic Workshop•George Kunihiro
Environmental control system of the building relies on the natural ventilation and the performance of rammed earth walls for the thermal and humidity transfer performance. Cross ventilation will be generated from the placement of windows on the north and south facades. No mechanical heating, ventilation and air conditioning will be installed. All lighting fixtures will be fluorescent and LED fixtures. The fixtures will provide for efficiency on lighting quantity to create appropriate quality of illumination for factory and atmosphere for interior spaces.
Bamboo Product Research and Design Center Li Xiaodong
The project is surrounded by bamboo forest. Therefore, bamboo is the main material. The first floor of the R&D center, the basement and the gallery are set for product display, technology exhibition and functional zone. In the second floor there are multi-function ladder hall and viewing deck. Here the ladder present both bookrack and seat.
Art Hotel Yang Xu
The hotel is intended as a spiral lies on the flat farmland, the spiral slab which gradually upraises rooms onto different levels with an uninterrupted incline, reminiscently responds the existing preserved dragon kilns in the site. On that account, the hotel is taken into consideration from dragon kiln through sloping slab, instead of standard rooms. Structurally, the hotel is consisted of two components, the core bearing wall made of bricks fired in local kiln, and the posts ranged along the contour of the irregular circumference, made of 100mm diameter local bamboos.

Boutique Hotel Simon Velez
The length of each support columns are different as this project is built on the hill, but the pillars which support the columns are in the same level. The roof is made by bamboo and its facade design will be made by celadon.
青年旅社及设计酒店 Anna Heringer
Youth Hostel & Design Hotel Anna Heringer
Renowned for its exemplary tradition of ceramics, Longquan occupies a special place in Chinese traditional craftsmanship. The proposed structures draw inspiration from these timeless ceramic forms that also represent the identity of this place and transfer them to a different material: bamboo. The project aims to facilitate a process that brings bamboo construction and weaving techniques to a status of excellence equal to the extraordinary skills in the field of ceramics.
By raising awareness of bamboo as a modern, excellent structural, ecological building material and as an applied art on par with that of ceramics, Longquan and Baoxi ensure that it’s tradition of regional handicrafts will endure.

Water Power of Trip-Hammer (Life Museum) Mauricio Cardenas Laverde
The project regards a container, a structure to protect the historic clay factory in all its parts (water tanks, trip-hammers, water mill, etc) and to allow the clay making process to continue without interferences. For this we propose two separate paths: one for the workers on the ground level and a separate path for the visitors at the street level. Visitors can walk through the spaces on a higher level looking from above the clay production and enjoying of the landscape at the same time. Main concern for us is to protect all the existing parts of the Water Power of Trip-Hammer for mixing Pottery Clay so that the traditional clay production factory keeps working as it is today.
低耗能示范竹屋 Mauricio Cardenas Laverde
Eco Energy Efficient Experimental House Mauricio Cardenas Laverde
Our proposal explores the potentiality of minimize carbon emissions,to maximize environmental protection and natural ecological development through the use of the natural elements available at Baoxi area, such as sun, water, plants, wind and natural materials to achieve a high standard innovative house for the Chinese context. Bamboo, is a very special natural element present in Baoxi area which we will use as structure for the house as well as for the interiors. Ground water cooling, underground water is an interesting natural resource available on site. Use underground water in a very simple manner to create a cooling system and also use for toilets where non-drinking water is acceptable. Feng shui, to learn and apply the most significant concepts of this antique Chinese tradition to the house design.
竹桥 Mauricio Cardenas Laverde
Bamboo Bridge Mauricio Cardenas Laverde
Our idea for the bridge is inspired in a Leonardo Da Vinci’s sketch from about 1485-1488 regarding a self-supporting bridge which wooden structure is assembled without fixings but just by overlapping elements.
当代青瓷艺术馆 Kengo Kuma
Contemporary Celadon Ceramic Museum
The design inspiration of Contemporary Celadon Ceramic Museum is from local laminated bamboo blocks, which is normally sliced and used for floor board. They are used in entirely different way –as structural elements of the architecture in this project.
陶艺家工作坊 Keisuke Maeda
Invited Ceramist Workshop Keisuke Maeda
This time, for the design of the studio and dwelling of a ceramist, we propose the new architecture which adapts itself to the scenery of Baoxi in that people are living with rich and beautiful natural environment.
As overall planning, we designed that some clods which include a sitting-room and a studio function overlap in a 45m bamboo like the fan state, and they make space like the landscape of the bamboo grove of large connection. Moreover, the bamboo pipe covers the whole with arranging the about φ50 bamboo in parallel irregularly and that serves as a membrane which secures internal and external relation, privacy, etc. We think that just the environment which resonates with natural evokes a ceramist's creativity, and that it becomes sustainable structure in this background.

Public Ceramic Workshop Madhura Prematilleke
The building is at two levels. On the upper level it rests on the retaining wall. The major spaces are at the lower level Public verandahs on the upper level respond to the public square. Waterfront courts on the lower level respond to the stream: we propos that this waterfront court is extended to the west. The building can also be entered from the minor square on the east, via steps. This also creates a path through the building linking the major and minor squares.
