設計概念 Design Concepts
我 們的目標是打造能改善台中地區惱人氣候的戶外空間，鼓勵民眾與遊客重返戶外。如同19世紀末期的都會公園，台中中央公園將扮演市民的「綠肺」，讓都市居民 享有健康福祉。園內運用各式大自然元素，如樹林、矮灌木叢、草地、水池、水景，以及石洞與造型奇特的建築等裝置，發揮調節的功能，緩和當地炎熱日照、吸收 空氣落塵，並為台中市中心注入一股清流。公園本身儼然是個巨型氣候調節裝置：園內有各種沙灘、空間，可降低周圍氣溫、濕度與污染程度。
公園的結構由三個參數構成：熱度、濕度、污染，並以三張地圖標示，分別代表建地現階段的狀態、情況惡化的假想狀態、以及本團隊提出乾爽清淨的理想狀態。我們 將三種參數的梯度圖隨機重疊，形成各式微型氣候，於園內創造多元的空氣氛圍。部分地區終年處於低溫低濕、污染較低的狀態，而其他必區則可能較為涼爽、但污 染程度略高一些。
為了實踐氣候圖的願景，我們發明了一系列的裝置，降低現有的炎熱、濕度與污染，以強化目前較為舒適的地區。這裡所謂的裝 置不只是人工機器，還包括特別篩選的天然草木，透過茂密的枝葉、週邊噴水池、噴霧器，吸收並降低日照的溫度。除此之外也使用被動式電子裝置，如除濕機與超 音波除蚊裝置。隨著不同地區的裝置數量，園內空間的舒適感也有高低變化，讓遊客逕自選擇適合的地方駐足。我們殷切期盼能將以上元素帶給台中市區，以促進居 民身心健康、舒適感，並帶來感官上的享受。
公 園內地形多元，其中還有一條貫穿南北的裂縫。居民可以登高遠望城市美景，有被大自然包圍的感覺。高低起伏的多樣地貌可發揮緩和交通車流的功能，同時讓動植 物與徒步的遊客可以通行無阻。我們也參考土壤中的隙縫和孔洞，作為園內不同功能區域配置的參考。土壤中的孔縫會保有些許水分。與氧氣接觸之後，促進種子發 芽進而長成樹木，最終成為一大片地景。
公園內的山坡盆地地形，有助於緩和雨水流失，由土壤充分吸收水分，收集雨水。如此一來，儘管當地夏 季時有暴雨，地下水可定期自我調節而不至於讓雨水全部排向海洋。土壤孔隙的梯度與植被活動，會影響地表逕流與入滲的係數，將之導入保留沙灘區或流進因大雨 來時淹沒的沙地。雨季的時候，有洞的土壤(80%為孔隙)是第一道關卡，可暫時容納多餘的雨水，之後再慢慢下滲到表土或外流至鄰近的孔隙。
相 對的，同樣的地形在乾季時期會根據不同的「流星裝置」形成舒適的戶外活動空間。土壤密度最高的部分(僅20%到40%的孔隙)，應設為博物館入口，並做為 綠色廊道的基地。在特殊情況時，可由第二種地形結構承接雨水。遇到百年一見的罕見現象，80%的公園被水淹沒，但可吸收10公分深的水量，類似鄉村地區的 草原大雨一來成為水鄉澤國。乾雨季的降雨差異，讓公園面貌更加豐富多變。
Climate shift as park
The structure of the park is based on variations in microclimate gradations, between the warmer, wetter and more polluted existing air and the newly created air, which is cooler, less humid, less polluted. By departing from the existing, we define three climatic maps: a map of the heat, a map describing the variations of the humidity level, and a final map describing the intensity of air pollution. Each of these maps constructs different of intensities, going from the existing climatic excesses up to the more profoundly modified parts in order to become more comfortable. The gradient map of each of these three parameters cross and overlap randomly, creating a variety of microclimates, a multitude of different atmospheres in the park. Here for example, it will always be warm but less humid, and the air will be less polluted, whereas there, somewhere else in the park, it will be cooler, drier, but the air remains polluted. The three maps function by gradation, between an uncomfortable presence of 100% of there natural intensity already existing in the town (100% pollution, 100% humidity, 100% heat) to the more comfortable zones, to the lowest intensity of 20% in which the heat, humidity, and pollution are reduced to the minimum possible.
To materialize these meteorological maps, we invented a catalogue of devices that reinforce areas that are already more comfortable by lowering, reducing, inverting, and diminishing the heat, humidity and pollution. These devices which act on the air are specific plants and trees chosen for their ability to absorb pollution or lessen the heat of the sun by the density of their leaves, water fountains, atomizers, as well as passive and electrical devices such as dehumidifiers or ultrasonic speakers that keep away mosquitoes. If we so want a cool place, we simply augment the presence of these devices. According to the density and quantity of devices in a given area, we create spaces more or less enjoyable, more or less comfortable, thus the different climatic properties sometimes overlap, separate, regroupe, densify, dilute, generating a variety of atmospheres where the users can choose and appropriate as they see fit. These climatic devices are a contemporary extension of traditional furniture of parks of small constructions such as benches, fountains, kiosks, fabrications or follies. We name them 『meteors,』 they introduce the texture of the park as so many sensory experiences.
Each of these meteors lowers the uncomfortable excess of climate and generates around it a more comfortable climate according to a single parameter. Our climatic devices are the niches, the fountains, and contemporary trellises. They create an enjoyable atmosphere around and in which visitors can take refuge. The meteors are also a sensual experience, playful, entertaining, prized destinations such as the grotto or pavilions in old parks. The first are the dehumidifiers, the second are the devices that depollute, the third are the devices that cool and decrease the intensity of light or create shade. The more we come down in percentage – if one wants for example to attain a low percentage of humidity, for example of only 20% and as to create a dryer area, there will be more devices of dehumidification installed in this place.
These meteorological devices and the ground that directs them are thus the founding elements of our partitions, dispersed according to different concentrations in the site in terms of the desired percentage of efficacy. Dispersed in the site in different concentrations, they give the texture of the park and introduce a scenery of appropriations as the figures of our architecture.
The distribution of programs —buildings, sports fields, leisure attractions, pathways, playing areas, etc.—is accomplished according to the microclimates created by the three maps of heat, humidity and pollution. Buildings, whose interiors are closed and conditioned, are located in the most uncomfortable areas. Sports fields and recreational and leisure activities, in contrast, are situated in the most comfortable microclimates, where the relative humidity level will be the lowest, the heat the least strong, and the pollution the lightest. In order to establish these three maps, we called upon the existing climatic data. The first map—heat—is based on the northeast winds that penetrate through the city and bring a cool air to the park. The areas that receive this breeze are reinforced with the installation of many heat-reducing devices. On the contrary, the areas least touched by the winds are those in which we place the least devices—they remain the warmest as a consequence. The second map —relative humidity—refers to the hydrologic condition resulting from the proposed transformation of the park’s topography. The lowest parts of the park are most susceptible to contain rainwater, and by consequence generate higher air humidity around themselves. By contrast, at the summit of park’s hills, the air is drier, because of lesser presence of water. We emphasize this existing quality by placing the most dehumidifying devices there. The final map—pollution—is defined by the location and course of the roads around and through the site. As the roads will emit noise and some air pollutants, those areas near to them are considered the most polluted. Thus, the area inside of the park, away from the roads, are the most tranquil and have the best air.
The park irrigates the heart of the district, with its own activities, its attractive capacity and its economic leverage in the entire sector. It transforms it – those who transverse it in their close radiation, from a vast crease in the ground that extends from north to south up to the larger parameter of the district. These topographies permit the inhabitants to take to great height while being impregnated by a landscape. They open views onto the town and in symmetry create landscaped horizons resting at the extremities of each of them. They bring forth the crevices that shield overly aggressive traffic while assuring the continuities of migration as an ecological corridors of animal, vegetable, and human populations.
Beyond a strict aspect of comfort and well-being of modern life, these creases in the soil are also and especially a very precisely parameterized technical tool for grading the porosity more or less dense according the usages and functions determined by the sector. As the permeability of a support determines its capacity to capture water the same as its capacity to introduce living milieus. A hole in the ground retains a little water, that in contact with oxygen allows for the germination of a seed that little by little can become a plant, then a landscape. The cycle of transformation wants that the duration develops organic qualities which establish with time. The waterproofing of cities responds to the criteria of comfort, but posses as many problems as the solutions it brings.
The relationship of this park to its mountainside basins, to water that is collected, orients its membranes to slow down rain water and infiltrate as closely as possible the places where it falls in the superficial layers of soil. And so, despite abrupt episodes of tropical rains, the groundwater can regularly refill itself instead of water flowing at top speed towards the ocean. The different gradients of porosity, as well as vegetable activities, determines the coefficient of surface runoff – to infiltration and orients the retention beaches, or again the temporary submersion beaches according to the intensity of the rains. The hollow ground- of 80% porosity- are in rain season the first receptacles to capture water, retaining temporarily for the relief of overpasses to then slowly infiltrate in the superficial layers or escape overly full into the next hollow.
In contrast, in dry periods, these same topographies welcome open-air activities according to the panel of meteors given to inhabitants. Whereas the most dense ground – from 20% to 40% porosity- deserves entrance in museums and extends over the axes of great influx as the green corridor. In case of exceptional events, a second topographic threshold fills with water. And finally in the case of an abnormal event, like a 100 year recurrence, 80% of the park covered in water can retain 10cm in the sectors usually beyond spreading, a little like the vast praries in the country that transform into ponds at times of heavy rainfall. The water gives rhythm to the park both by its available recreational influences and by its capacity of morphing according to what we find in a dry season or in a monsoon period.
The stratigraphy of water is coupled with a stratigraphy of vegetable formations that directly index the coefficients of runoff. Articulated in the meteors, the gradients of vegetation stages the park to the image of island landscapes that orchestrate the diversity of Taiwanese biomes. On each series will be deducted a singular character feature acclimated to the park environment.
