Abstract

In contemporary downtown historic area renovation, conflicts between the new building and the environment always exist. To better solve the problem, a concept of Scene Container was introduced into the New Craig County Hall design, achieved by framing views from the new building towards historic scenery outside. Layered spaces with differing degrees of enclosure also help to build visual contact between new and old.
