Chengdu Tianfu Metropolis Planning Corridor / AND Studio
Textual content description offered by the architects. Surrounded by wetlands and forests, the Tianfu New Space is positioned alongside south of the Tianfu Avenue, the central axis of Chengdu. With fields, shallow hills, woodlands and rivers round， Chengdu Tianfu Metropolis Planning Corridor is lighted perched on a wetland hill, mixing in with nature. It would turn into the distinctive id of Tianfu New Space.
The design idea is derived from the wild goose flying south and perched on the hill. Lead architect Wang Ning shared his concept “If the structure is only a glass field, it might haven’t any presence from a distance, and the extremely reflective glass could be very incongruous in a farmyard. Thus, we wished to create that ‘imaginary’ physique from the outset, like a chook’s feathers that may breathe and thru which daylight and sight can cross it.”
In concord with nature
The bottom ground is elevated and has colonnades below the eaves that venture outwards to permit for a stroll beneath. The constructing façade adopts a big space of hidden-frame glass ribbed curtain wall. This extends the out of doors nice view into the inside, dissolving the boundary between structure and nature. The inside atrium makes use of a patio to herald pure mild and the inside bamboo panorama on the bottom ground permits individuals to really feel surrounded by nature even inside the constructing. The distant view from the second ground platform reveals a big expanse of greenery and the lake. The partially accessible rooftop is a superb place to get a panoramic view of your complete core space of the Tianfu Cultural and Artistic Metropolis. In the meantime, trying again over the Tianfu Avenue, the curved roof is ready towards the sheltered wetland panorama, just like the feather of the wild goose.
Localization expression of the fabric
The ceiling ornament of the roof is taken into account from the facet of low carbon and sustainable building. Counting on the tradition of Sichuan, the standard materials of bamboo has been chosen to be shaped into wood bamboo via a brand new course of. The modular wood bamboo cross members are mortised and pinned to one another to type a number of layers of ambiguous timber body house. After steady refinement of the structural connections and the general architectural aesthetics, a complete of 20 columns and roughly 30,000 pendants are used to finish the ultimate impact via cross-over chunk hyperlinks.
The design workforce has explored a brand new sample of sunshine building on the plains of western Sichuan. Ning Wang says:” I believe it matches notably properly with the lifetime of Chengdu individuals: relaxed, native, colourful however not static.”
