DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
The Tree Aquarium

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Shopping mall

INSPIRATION:
Situated in the central business district of Shenzhen Futian, the Mall integrates with the elements of nature to create a “Tree Aquarium” which allows a place for refreshment and distillation of mind out of the busy city life.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The interior space is an interplay of watery contours representing the pedestrian mobility. Water-curtained skylight dissolves sunlight into the main atrium of aqua-scape and grows the symbolic 'Tree of Light', which immersed into this underwater terrain in a feeling of energized focus and sway like enjoying the whole process of the aqua-flowing activity. The flairs of light change as we move through the water-ground, and bring this enchanted submarine forest a natural scenery like fairy tales.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The moment entering this tree aquarium, one will feel like being insulated from the outside busy world. The sea-sky interface swirls between the reality and dream - reflecting the blurred urban forest into a natural oasis, a new for-rest. Under the canopy of the tree shoppers have a place to rest and breathe, and become the ingredients of the aquarium, interacting with the scenery and exploring treasury.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Design commencing on mid 2014 till early 2015 at Hong Kong, construction period from April 2015 to December 2015 at Shenzhen.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Interior Space and Exhibition Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The tree trunk and branches are made of wood faced steel frame with embedded computerized controlled colored LED lights, like the shimmering light shows under deep sea. Layers of spandrel/ceiling contours made of GRG and wood continue to swirl, thus twisting parametrically the tree and shearing its branches towards sky limit. The water-curtained skylight interfaced between the reality and dream, contrary to the urban forest to provide this underwater oasis.
