MOB Architects’ project Liaisons has been shortlisted for the 2016 World Architecture Festival in the Future Projects \ Residential category and has won the Residential category for the 2016 AR MIPIM Future Projects Awards

Designed for the MOLEWA (Mount Lu World of Architecture) competition, Liaisons is a residential project in Ruichang, China near the “Flower Ocean Garden,” one of the world’s largest flower theme parks.

Inspired by the concept of blooming, the project centers on introducing a flourishing essence to the neighborhood by analyzing floral and vegetal properties in pixels and converting them into patterns, which are applied in arrangements and spatial organization principles.

The project is developed in six areas which are defined by distinct flower colors (purple, pink, red, orange, yellow, qing). The areas appear with diverse materialities throughout the horizontal and vertical surfaces (for example in the circulation zones, in the landscape design, in the facades, etc). The color succession remains the same throughout the total height of the buildings, but the specific limit between the areas varies from floor to floor - explained the architect on a press release.

In each of these areas, beds of flowers that bloom year-round will cover the landscaping, as well as semi-public terraces throughout the building.

Both active and passive design strategies are utilized in the project to improve sustainability. For example, the building takes advantage of optimal Southern orientation, utilizes geothermal energy and solar energy, and collects rainwater for watering plants.
