Noor Island Park Park by 3deluxe architecture

Home > Winners > #56517


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Noor Island Park

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Park

INSPIRATION:
The shape and design of the pavilion’s biomorphic outer shell are the product of an exploration of parametric design strategies in dialog with traditional Arabian ornamentation. The highly complex freeform roof is composed of a load-bearing 3D frame with over 4,000 golden aluminium leaves of varying sizes.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Noor Island Park – a lagoon island in the middle of the metropolis Sharjah, transformed into a transmedia landscape park as a new type of urban space. The Butterfly Pavilion with its golden gleaming sunshade roof that is discernible from afar is the architectural centre piece. The organically shaped steel structure of the butterfly house is covered in thousands of star-shaped metal blossoms, which paint ornamental patterns on the inside glass pavilion as the sunlight shines through them.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The 2.4-hectare "Island of Light" in the middle of the Khalid Lagoon has become a platform where both residents and visitors can engage with the city on intellectual, emotional and physical levels. Initiated by André Heller, the project, which was commissioned by Shurooq, the local state development authority, provided an opportunity for the company to come up with ideas without having to worry about function and yield. 3deluxe transcended the boundaries between the different disciplines, orchestrating a multisensory experience based on a walk-in, tactile sculpture. Here, where architecture, design, flora, sound and graphics overlap, a complexity of design emerges that fully involves viewers, making them part of the overall experience. The idea of transformation permeates all aspects of the project. How can a forgotten island be transformed into a poetic landscape? And how can nature and architecture, light and water, the hypermodern and the traditional come together in a walk-through installation? The former brownfield at the heart of the city has been transformed into a unique experience. Clear design principles lead to ever-new relationships and form a multisensory whole. Far removed from any form of megalomania, Noor Island is one of the showpieces among the new builds in the Gulf region.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Several of the Butterfly Pavillion’s approximately 4 000 aluminum petals are forever shimmering through the branches. The viewer’s eye follows the momentum in search of the strongest light – discovering it in the ornamental roof that rises above the butterfly sanctuary itself like a protective curtain, a perforated sheath which, like the classic wind towers in Arab architecture, produces a cooling effect. At almost 15 metres in height, the pavilion, which houses some 500 tropical butterflies, a shop and a café, is almost as high as the tops of the surrounding palms and leafy trees. The pavilion was designed to fit in with the established ecosystem on Noor Island.

CHALLENGE:
The architects at 3deluxe took their inspiration from the chimney effect created by the tapered structure, thereby creating a climatic buffer zone between inside and outside. The intricate casing protects the butterfly biotope, creating shade without excluding the daylight. On the contrary – it is as if the café and the glass insect house are flooded with light. The shadows of flowers make their way across the floor and walls. Images of the ornamental roof blend with the floral patterns of the plants that appear to be growing out of the floor in the tropical house. Architecture merges with nature to create something new, an "archinature", which adopts Arab ornamentation and building traditions just as much as foliage and tendrils.
