How Green Technic and Poetic Issues in Eco-Architectural Practice
The reconstruction in the area of Wenchuan Earthquake strives to be eco-friendly and recalls the question of how green. Built environment, which is reconstructed according to the green of eco-architecture, must contribute more positively to the planet and the pleasure of place as well as answering the sustainable demands of comfort. To address both technic and poetic issues in eco-architectural practice, in the design proposal for a Rural Sunshine Primary School located at Barkam County of Sichuan Province, low technologically, sensory experience of sustainable strategies is widely introduced to reinforce the meaning of green building and encourages the children in disaster area to make friends with nature and future. Three interactive issues, eco site plan, sustainability strategy and green environment, are introduced as the core concepts in the design, while the children in disaster area comfortably and sensorily experience daylighting, ventilation and thermal performance of green building.
