Jiangnan No.1 Courtyard Exhibition Hall by Wei Zhang - gad

Home > Winners > #136004


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Jiangnan No.1 Courtyard

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Exhibition Hall

INSPIRATION:
The patio in the traditional courtyard emphasizes spirituality and sense of belonging. The building also responds to this concept in space design, and it is overall like an enclosed hall with the internal functional organization built around a patio atrium.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The building is located at XiaoshanInnovation Polis, and being adjacent to the lake in the place is the landscape advantage that has added the smart sense of the Jiangnan watery town. The herringbone sloping roofs and the minimalist white walls and black tiles elements give a vivid visual impression, forming an overall continuous and rhythmic picture. The herringbone undulating roof brings a rich state of space, and which seems to be a sign of the designer’s preference for the endless mountains.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Stepping into the front hall, the landscape atrium is opposite to the entrance. Natural light becomes an indoor light source through the atrium glass. The seasons change and the variety of light and shadow are all like being collected in this transparent landscape container. Combined with the waterscape, it fills the square space with the light flow sense and fresh vitality, responding to the environment characteristics of overlooking lake in the area. When we visit the gardens, we often linger in the twists and turns of the virtual and real landscape. In the design of the experience hall, this gardening method is used in the architectural space to create a virtual and real spatial sequence. For example, the glass material used at the corner along the lake, and the Jiangnan architectural elements of the white walls and black tiles, form a virtual and real, modern and ancient, indoor and outdoor integration.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in 2016 in Hangzhou, China and finished in 2018.08.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The entrance is made of imitative wood pole elements creating a semi-transparent curtain effect. The building facade combining with the small scene of the landscape creates a wonderful picture of mountains and rivers in Jiangnan.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The light well in the traditional courtyard emphasizes spirituality and sense of belonging. The building also responds to this concept in space design, and it is overall like an enclosed hall with the internal functional organization built around a light well atrium. Stepping into the front hall, the landscape atrium is opposite to the entrance. Natural light becomes an indoor light source through the atrium glass.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
If the design is telling a kind of wisdom, a certain quality or a feeling about beauty, then culture is the train of thought hidden in the design method. In the traditional concept, oriental architecture advocates the implicit quality and avoids the direct expression. In the design concept of Jiangnan No.1 Courtyard Life Experience Hall, we respond to the spirit characteristics of the traditional Jiangnan courtyard with modern language.

CHALLENGE:
In this case, we try to depict the understanding of the traditional Jiangnan architecture and explore the cultural roots growing in space. And meanwhile, this project trys to answer how should architecture express the unique charm of oriental architecture with modern language.
