龙鳞白杨林间的乡村公共空间营造景观设计 | 赵金祥工作室
The origin of design
Populus alba village, Qilian County, Qinghai Province, is located at the foot of zhuo'er mountain, a scenic spot along the Qinghai Hubei line. There is plenty of light in summer and snow in winter. The surrounding mountains are covered with rain and snow, and the streams pass through the village. The Hui, Han and Salar villagers of the village have lived together with this poplar forest for many years. The largest resource of the site itself is the dense poplar forest distributed on both sides of the valley. The plan hopes to highlight the site characteristics of the scattered forest land through the careful layout of the forest path and theme landscape, and create a series of comfortable and natural public activity spaces for the village.
When thinking about the future scene of public space in Populus alba village, we put forward two levels of scene construction: "poetic nature, neighborhood comfort". The inspiration of the scene design comes from the traditional garden making method. With the nearly hidden plank road, a series of walking paths are built from the village entrance to the poplar forest and then to the highland barley field to show the dragon scale poplar, which can be used to create a deep view by the mountain forest; sometimes lying across the water, sometimes winding into the forest, fascinating in the natural poetic scene among the snow mountain, Danxia and poplar forest.

The neighborhood comfortable scene is built on the stream of snow mountain, which is precious in the northwest of Takahara. The design hopes to seize the opportunity of water environment reconstruction after returning farmland to grassland, reconstruct the comfortable hydrophilic neighborhood public space, adopt the strategy of water management and good neighborhoods, carry out three sections of centralized treatment for the existing water body, form the open and close water stream relationship with a sense of falling, and pass through it with a zigzag stack road facing the water, and strive to narrow and long field by taking advantage of the sense of local height difference and the secluded platform in the forest In the middle of the earth, we can see the big from the small. The inter forest walking system also forms a small closed-loop traffic in the core area of public life with the villagers' Square, adding a hydrophilic public activity site with composite functions, improving the accessibility and living environment of the surrounding villagers, and improving the hydrophilic comfort of the neighborhood space of the village.

Populus alba village is a multi-ethnic village with environmental characteristics. At the beginning of the design, we found that the left behind people had strong willingness to participate in the village construction, but we didn't know where to start, so the design team carried out a field space construction experiment from behavior in the early stage of the construction. The landscape architect and the community construction team worked hand in hand with a "talking wall" activity to launch an interaction on the environmental governance of the village. The interactive media material is the beverage bottles that tourists left in the village. Because the products can't be decomposed even if they have been buried underground for more than 100 years, we mobilized the villagers to paint on the collected beverage bottles, which can't be divided in 100 years Jiedi's bottle beautifying courtyard wall and environmental governance theme landscape node, with a series of participatory design activities to show the other side of "garbage", re agglomerate the national consensus on the environmental protection and governance of a beautiful home, establish the collective memory of villagers and the natural environment, and create a small closed loop of shared and co built village environmental governance.

Place and materials
After the completion of the public space in the village, a series of places are provided for villagers to walk, rest, stop, play, meet and communicate in the public environment from indoor to outdoor. The outdoor furniture of the place mostly uses the wastes such as drink plastic bottles and old railings. The space interface uses steel wood, red brick and stone materials in the natural environment to strengthen the space definition of artificial and natural, and strive to create more interesting activity places for the elderly, women and children in the village.
