normal Hutong Bubble 32 by MAD

Beijing architects [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] have completed the first of a series of proposed bubble-shaped additions to traditional hutongs in the city.

The first bubble, called Hutong Bubble 32, provides a toilet and
staircase in a hutong – a traditional but basic housing typology based
around a courtyard that is under threat from rapid development in

MAD’s Beijing Hutong Bubble project proposes adding similar bubbles
to many of the city’s hutongs to improve living conditions while
preserving the vernacular urban fabric.

Here’s some more information from MAD:

Beijimg Hutong Bubble by MAD
MAD’s proposal for the future Beijing 2050 was first revealed at its
exhibition MAD IN CHINA in Venice during the 2006 Venice Architecture

Beijing 2050 imagined three scenarios for the future of Beijing―a
green public park in Tiananmen Square, a series of floating islands
above the city’s CBD, and the “Future of Hutongs,” which featured
metallic bubbles scattered over Beijing’s oldest neighborhoods.

Three years later, the first hutong bubble has appeared in a small courtyard in Beijing.

China’s rapid development has altered the city’s landscape on a
massive scale, continually eroding the delicate urban tissue of old
Beijing. Such dramatic changes have forced an aging architecture to
rely on chaotic, spontaneous renovations to survive the ever-changing

In addition, poor standards of hygiene have turned unique living
space and potential thriving communities into a serious urban problem.
Hutongs are gradually becoming the local inhabitants’ dumpster, the
haven for the wealthy, the theme park for tourists.

The self-perpetuating degradation of the city’s urban tissue
requires a change in the living conditions of local residents. Progress
does not necessarily call for large scale construction – it can occur
as interventions at a small scale.

The hutong bubbles, inserted into the urban fabric, function like
magnets, attracting new people, activities, and resources to reactivate
entire neighborhoods. They exist in symbiosis with the old housing.

Fueled by the energy they helped to renew, the bubbles multiply and
morph to provide for the community’s various needs, thereby allowing
local residents to continue living in these old neighborhoods. In time,
these interventions will become part of Beijing’s long history, newly
formed membranes within the city’s urban tissue.

Unexpectedly, a manifestation of this idealistic vision has sprung
up in one of Beijing’s hutongs, just three years after the exhibition.
Hutong Bubble 32 provides a toilet and a staircase that extends onto a
roof terrace for a newly renovated courtyard house.

Its shiny exterior renders it an alien creature, and yet at the same time, reflects the surrounding wood, brick, and greenery.

The past and the future can thus coexist in a finite, yet dream-like world.

The real dream, however, is for the hutong bubble to link this
culturally rich city to each individual’s vision of a better Beijing.

The bubble is not regarded as a singular object, but as a means to
initiate a renewed and energetic community. Under the hatchet of
fast-paced development, we must always be cognizant of Beijing’s long
term goals and the direction of its creativity.

Perhaps we should shift our gaze away from the attraction of new
monuments and focus on the everyday lives of the city’s residents.
