“冰岛黑色熔岩场游客中心”国际竞赛选址在冰岛最神秘的一处自然景观地,要在此建立一个新的游客中心。黑色熔岩场位于玛花顿湖(Mývatn Lake)附近的黑色城堡(Dimmuborgir),场地面貌呈现出各种怪异的形状,同时这里也流传着许多古典神话——甚至有言论认为这是路西法(Lucifer)第一次降临地球的地方。

这样一个令人印象深刻的场所也应该拥有一个同样让人难以忘怀的游客中心,因此在“冰岛黑色熔岩场游客中心”建筑竞赛中,主办方Bee Breeders希望设计师对现场设施进行改造,建立一个具有创新性的建筑结构作为这个奇妙的旅游景点的门面。由于周围环境高度敏感,所以整个设计需要采用可持续的施工方法。

The Bee Breeders Iceland Black Lava Fields Visitor Center competition is calling for submissions for a new visitor center in one of Iceland’s most mysterious and mystical landscapes. The black lava fields in the Dimmuborgir site near Mývatn Lake take on all manner of eerie shapes, inspiring ancient mythology – even claiming to be the spot where Lucifer first fell to Earth.

Such an impressive location deserves an equally impressive visitor center, and so with the Iceland Black Lava Fields Visitor Center architecture competition, Bee Breeders are looking to reinvent their on-site facilities and create an innovative structure that will act as the face of this incredible tourist attraction. The highly sensitive nature of the surrounding environment would require all designs to exercise sustainable construction practices.

 

 

 

竞赛介绍  Competition Introduction

 

冰岛的火山景观迷人而富有魅力,流传着许许多多的神话故事,当然位于北部的黑色熔岩场也不例外。玛花顿湖和Hverfjall火山附近的黑色城堡得名于冰岛语里的单词,意为“黑暗城堡”或“黑暗城市”。大约在2300年前,一次大规模的火山喷发形成了这片黑色熔岩场,它创造出了独特的地貌特征和荒凉的景观。

在坊间曾有这样一个传说:场地上怪异的岩石层里住着一个名叫Grýla的凶残巨魔,还有她的丈夫和儿子们尤尔·莱德(Yule Lads)。这些叫尤尔·莱德的儿子们在当地扮演者圣诞老人的角色,给表现好的孩子留下礼物,给表现不好的孩子留下烂土豆。随着基督教在冰岛的传播,这里被人们看作是撒旦(Satan)被赶出天堂后所踏足的地方。

黑色城堡是当地最热门的旅游景点之一,每年都有成千上万的游客到此参观黑色熔岩场。场地目前有一个由集装箱模块组成的游客中心,比较简朴,能够供应基本的食物和饮料。随着本次国际建筑竞赛的举行,主办方希望设计师对现场设施进行改造,建立一个具有创新性的建筑结构作为这个奇妙的旅游景点的门面。

竞赛要求参赛者设计的建筑除了要受人欢迎,还要不失异国风情,并与周围神秘的自然景观相联系。就其功能而言,新的设施可以大致保持不变,要有基本的便利设施,如小型咖啡馆、纪念品商店和问询处。

由于周围环境高度敏感,所以整个设计需要采用可持续的施工方法,同时该建筑还要有潜力成为与黑色熔岩场有同等意义的标志性地标。

Iceland’s volcanic landscapes are captivating and enchanting, with many filled with mythological stories, and the black lava fields in the north of the country are no exception. The Dimmuborgir site near Mývatn Lake and Hverfjall volcano takes its name from the Icelandic word for Dark Castles or Dark Cities, and was formed some 2,300 years ago by a massive eruption that created the unique features and bleak landscape.

The eerie rock formations were once said to be the home of a murderous troll named Grýla, her husband, and her sons The Yule Lads. Originally in Icelandic folklore these Yule Lads came to take on the role of Santa Claus, leaving gifts for children who were well behaved, and rotten potatoes for those that were not. As Christianity became popular in Iceland the site was thought to be where Satan landed after being tossed out of Heaven.

Dimmuborgir is one of the region’s most popular tourism spots, with thousands of tourists visiting the black lava fields every year. There is currently a simple visitor center constructed from container modules offering basic food & drink options and a gift shop. With the Iceland Black Lava Fields Visitor Center architecture competition, Bee Breeders architecture competition organisers are looking to reinvent their on-site facilities and create an innovative structure that will act as the face of this incredible tourist attraction.

Participants are tasked with designing a structure that is both welcoming and in keeping with the exotic and mysterious nature of the landscape. In terms of functionality, the new facilities can remain much the same, providing basic amenities such as a small cafe, souvenir shop and information center.

The highly sensitive nature of the surrounding environment would require all designs to exercise sustainable construction practices, while at the same time having the potential to become an iconic landmark that is synonymous with black lava fields.
