Xi'an Qujiang Art Center Exhibition Hall by Xiaoxia Wang - gad

Home > Winners > #136009


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Xi'an Qujiang Art Center

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Exhibition Hall

INSPIRATION:
How to deal with the relationship between the architecture and the site becomes the starting point of the initial design. The designer further contemplates the space core by contemplating on the relationship between architecture and nature, the way of interaction and the boundless sense of experience. Double-layer full glass curtain walls allow the building to interact with the nature in the form of fuzzy boundary.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The project is located in Yanta District, Xi’an, with a mature surrounding traffic system including elevated roads, subways and highways, which makes it quite convenient and able to reach the main city within an hour. Being close to Qujiang Pool and Tang Paradise, the site is surrounded by multiple urban parks and boasts rich green land resources.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Facing the height difference between the site and the 10 meter green belt of the road, how shall people reach the site? The landscape design gives a poetic answer. The gentle slope of the urban green belt is built into a silk belt trail, leading the walk in. The walk experience becomes a way of dialogue with the site, and also a more close interaction between the site and the city. The landscape design and space streamline of the drop-off area overlap with each other. The designer is not eager to let people arrive at the exhibition hall, but allows them to go straight through the landscape garden on the first floor. Walking through the landscape area and after taking the 88 second straight ladder, people will see the floating exhibition hall with four transparent walls at the end of the stairs. When looking back from the exhibition hall, the landscape on the roof of the podium and the botanical garden on the east side of the site form a continuous dialogue relationship. The landscape and architectural sequence constitute the designer's narrative of the space, which naturally triggers the emotion and experience at that moment.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in 2018 in Rongchuang Qujiangyin, Qujiang New District, Xi'an, China and finished in 2019.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Cellular aluminum sheet's lightness, high intensity and high flatness guarantee the flatness of the large aluminum curtain wall. Meanwhile the reflections of the surroundings further strengthens the sense of floating.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The cellular stone breaks the area limit of natural stone with a size of 1.2m wide x 2.2m high. It also can be used on the dropping ceiling which ensures the integrity of the entry space and renders a unusual drop-off experience. Cellular aluminum sheet’s lightness, high intensity and high flatness guarantee the flatness of the large aluminum curtain wall. Meanwhile the reflections of the surroundings further strengthens the sense of floating.

TAGS:
Floating Horizon, Suspension Structure

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The process of arriving at the site is not a straightforward one, but a process of falling, turning, surprise and suddenly opening up, which seems to coincide with human's emotional experience. The whole building is anchored on the site. The site and the building are integrated with the bottom hidden in the green slope.

CHALLENGE:
The exhibition hall space is divided into three layers. The whole structure is a suspension structure. Under the suspension structure, the stress mode of the column is changed from bearing pressure to bearing tension, and the performance of the steel is brought into play. The diameter of the suspension column is reduced to 200 mm to achieve the " almost no column" effect in the indoor space. Hence the freedom of the exhibition space can be fully released, and the sight line can be connected with the outside almost unobstructed, blurring the inner and outer boundaries.
