The Borderless Community
by Fei Architects

Winner: Housing project 2020. The Borderless Community of Zi Ni Twelve Portals is a housing project in China's Panyu District.

The Borderless Community of Zi Ni Twelve Portals is tailor-made for seven "slash youths" as a mingled space for both public and private life.

The project is tailor made for seven "slash youths" as a mingled space for both public and private life covering work, habitation, exhibition, recreational activities and social gathering. The "slash youths" are engaged in various industries and their work demands high social exposure.

Therefore they would like to exhibit their works, products and even their operation model and everyday life so as to usher in a brand new urban lifestyle distinguished from the commuter's routine followed by most of their peers.

Judges comments: "Apartment buildings can be seen as isolated spaces but this helps us go back - to a neighbourhood feeling where there are moments of interconnection."
