In the tradition of conceptual and visionary architecture proposals, SPARK Architects reveal
their design for a floating hawker centre – the Solar Orchid. This concept for self-contained,
solar-powered, floating hawker pods suggests a way to mend the now distant relationship
between Singapore and its waterscapes, while celebrating and reinvigorating a favoured
local pass time.
基于概念设计和未来设计的传统,SPARK 思邦创想了一个名为“星光兰”的漂浮熟食中心项目。
这个设计是一种设备齐全,由太阳供能的漂浮性摊位造型,设计想表达的愿景是修复日渐疏远
的新加坡与其水体之间的关系,同时宣扬和激活这种当地传统的休闲方式。
Singapore was built on an intimate relationship with the water, which has historically been
an artery of culture, commerce and recreation. However, the recent decades of urban
development, industrialisation and land reclamation have largely severed this relationship,
deleting most of the traditional kampungs and kelongs from the coast, inland water bodies,
and sea.
新加坡的建造与水有着密切的联系,历史上“水”一直是贯穿文化,商业和娱乐的主动脉。但
是随着近年的城市化、工业化的土地征用极大地影响和破坏了这种联系,抹杀了大多数位于海
岸、内陆水体边沿的传统村落和水上船坞。
SPARK’s concept for a floating hawker centre draws on our experience of the city, its culture
and heritage, and all that we enjoy about it, to imagine a new relationship with Singapore’s
public waterscape. This visionary project imagines a mobile, reconfigurable and sustainable
floating hawker centre that could ‘pop up’ in a variety of locations and formats.
SPARK 思邦的“漂浮熟食中心”提议重新挖掘新加坡这一层面的文化遗产。我们的灵感来源
于对于城市的体验,以及我们享受到的美好事物,从而想象一次“新”的与新加坡水体相碰撞
的文化模式。这个项目被想象成将是一个可移动、可重组和可持续的水上漂浮熟食中心,它们
在不同的地方以不同形式绽放。


The Solar Orchid recalls the mobility of the original Singaporean hawker – the mobile street
vendor – with self-contained, solar-powered, lightweight floating pods. Each pod
accommodates cooking stalls (incorporating built-in exhaust, water, gas, electrical, waste
collection and water recycling services) as well as table settings.
“星光兰”未来方案在原有新加坡街头移动熟食摊位的机动灵活性基础上,加之以可持续的、
自给自足太阳能供电的漂浮体概念。每朵漂浮的“星光兰”都能容纳一至三个个熟食摊位(内
置嵌入式排气,水电气及垃圾收集和废水回收)及配套的桌椅。这个结构的盖顶包含花瓣般的
光电管薄膜,它可以跟着太阳光的足迹。多个“星光兰”的多重形态组合又能回应不同的地点
和条件。由于自身设计的设备齐全,这些花骨朵在搬运途中不会对所在地造成任何影响。
The protective canopy is an energy-generating inflated ETFE pillow incorporating thin-film
photovoltaic cells. It complements the $11 million Singaporean government initiative to
develop floating solar islands in Singapore’s reservoirs. The Solar Orchids can be clustered
together in various formations to create hawker centres that are able to respond to different
locations and conditions. They would leave no trace of their presence due to their selfcontained
nature.
“星光兰”盖顶是花瓣般的ETFE 膜和光电管薄膜,它们形成双曲抛面,由一个三支的机械臂
支撑,可以倾斜角度跟踪太阳。如同绿叶的功能,这个盖顶的设计是可以遮风挡雨的,同时可
以让表面积最大化以捕捉太阳能。
Stephen Pimbley says
“The idea of reinventing the hawker centre grew from the widely documented observation
that the popularity of the traditional hawker lifestyle has begun to wane. We seek to reenergise
the hawker centre typology while retaining the soul of a very Singaporean dining
experience”
史蒂芬.平博理说
“重塑熟食小贩中心的想法来源于普遍存在的一个趋势,那就是传统熟食小贩的生活方式和流
行程度正在逐渐衰退。我们试图重新为这种熟食小贩的类型和概念注入活力,同时保留新加坡
最具灵魂的餐饮体验。我们还打算激发小摊位与具体地点空间相结合的潜力和可能性,例如:
以“临时性桥”的形式横跨河湖之上的摊位。”
We have a duty as designers to develop and propose ideas and visions that can enhance our
cities, as well as contribute to making them more liveable places. History offers many
extraordinary examples of visionary projects that remain on paper, serving as vehicles for
debate about the future of our cities.
作为设计师,我们有责任建议和开发可提升我们城市生活的想法和蓝图,使其成为一个更加适
合工作、生活、娱乐的宜居空间。曾经有很多停留在纸面上的未来方案虽未被建造,却为我们
提供了无与伦比的想象,这丝毫没有削弱它们作为一种探求和辩论城市未来载体的重要性。
SPARK’s Solar Orchid proposal is a bold vision unhindered by commercial and planning
constraints. It is our reflection on changing social, cultural and environmental conditions
and concerns and how the best the untapped pockets of the city can be used to support and
make better the lives of Singaporeans.
SPARK 思邦提议的“星光兰”秉承创造大胆的不受商业和规划限制的未来设计的精神。一定
程度上我们的提议反映了不断变化的社会,文化和环境条件的问题。这是一次探讨城市的小空
间如何得以提升,以支持和激活新加坡居民生活方式的良好时机。
