Qinfeng Library / Wall Architects of XAUAT
Textual content description offered by the architects. Situated in “The eighteen junior highschool of Xi’an Hello-tech Zone”, the “Qinfeng Library” is the second “Rural Faculty Library” of the Hope Mission in Shaanxi accomplished by the group in cooperation with the “Samsung (China) Social Welfare Program”. The library continues the design idea of “integration and mutualization” with the atmosphere, but additionally experimentally explores the worth of the next two features: 1. Opening and sharing – The development website is positioned within the southeast nook of the college, adjoining to 2 main rural roads to the east and south. The aim of the outward location is to permit the constructing as a hyperlink that may serve each the within and outdoors of the college and profit the neighboring villagers.
The open semi-outdoor house underneath the eaves on the south aspect and the accessible massive house on the primary ground turns into a “shared house” for energetic interplay between the college cultural life and villagers, and enrichment actions could be organized to stimulate the diversified cultural lifetime of the countryside sooner or later. The design specifies the “small house and multi-purpose” composite aim, forming a wealthy spatial composition that not solely meets the essential operate of studying however can be appropriate with seminars, exhibitions, exchanges, studying, performances, and different potentialities. The semi-outdoor house underneath the eaves on the west and north aspect echoes the neighboring buildings and landscapes, making up for the dearth of applicable public interplay areas.
2. Ecological sustainability – With the technical assist of the Zero Vitality & Zero Carbon Constructing Analysis Group of Xi’an College of Structure and Expertise, the design absolutely explores a low-carbon path that mixes with the native pure atmosphere, in order that the constructing orientation, type, slope and openings are conducive to acquiring extra photo voltaic radiation within the winter, and higher pure air flow and cooling within the transition season and summer season (particularly the downhill wind in the summertime afternoon). The one-slope type avoids the affect of daylight on the dormitory to the north, and the skylight on the roof enhances the year-round pure daylighting and summer season air flow of the indoor house.
The lighting, multimedia gear, sockets, and sensible home windows are powered by PV, making it primarily a totally DC-powered constructing. The PV set up adopts the connection know-how of structurally built-in embedded elements and metal keel, which takes into consideration the aesthetics, security, and value intensification. The library is supplied with a full set of monitoring gear, and the info is transmitted to the cloud in real-time, to build up first-hand operational information for the applying and promotion of low-carbon constructing applied sciences.
Though the “Qinfeng Library”, a small faculty library with low price, confronted many difficulties in building underneath rural circumstances, the continued promotion of this undertaking will definitely present a mannequin for the event of rural constructing and public welfare in Shaanxi. It’s the proof of associated outcomes of the “14th 5-12 months Plan” Nationwide Science and Expertise Main Mission of China, “Analysis and Demonstration of Key Applied sciences for Zero-Carbon Constructing in Photo voltaic-Wealthy Space” and likewise the constructive response to a collection of insurance policies of the State and Shaanxi Province on zero-carbon buildings and BIPV, and so on.
