RFLA：The stories of this city paint a picture scroll with centennial history. As the eastern starting point of the Ming Great Wall, Shanhaiguan dips into the sea and made waves like a dragon head , hence the name “Old Dragon Head”.In order to meet the rich historical heritage of Shanhaiguan City, the entire exhibition area abandons the traditional display area design method, creates a park-style display area, uses the centuries-old ancient pine, the strange stone, the old stone slab with rich cultural heritage as the landscaping element. Meanwhile, the exhibition area uses white walls as canvas and light as color to depict this unique and beautiful picture of the Shanhaiguan Jinxi Exhibition Area. It tells the unique story of the Shanhaiguan City, and adds a special color to the urban painting.
Take local characteristics as design inspiration to create unique landscape in street corner. As the opening space of Jinxi exhibition area, the gentle slope with pine forest serves as the background, the warm yellow gravel is placed with the strange stones, and the horizontally extending landscape wall plays a role in defining and identifying space. The entrance landscape forms a natural and relaxing urban main interface in the form of a park. As the exhibition area is close to the city’s main road, Laolongtou Road, this design not only echoes the local scenery of Shanhaiguan, but also replaces the traditional spiritual fortress. It attracts the attention of citizens by a unique scenery to the street.
The finishing touch reveals the charming of the ancient city. Compared with the hidden view of the entrance space, the spatial sequence forms a change of opening and closing. The gently undulating grassy slope forms the base, and the large area of the outer wall of the building becomes an excellent picture scroll of ancient pine. At the moment, the solitary planting of the ancient pine become the leading role in the space, showing its elegant posture and high-spirited momentum. The ingenious use of the natural landscape rather than carved beams and painted walls enhances the atmosphere and quality of the space.
Feel the flow of time and space in the winding paths and deep woods. As the tortuous path slowly entered, the pine forest on both sides of the path, the space immediately closed. Hidden scene – show – clamping, front space sequence formation rhythm changes. Surrounded by undulating terrain, walking between them, the shade of the trees is mottled, and you can’t help but slow down and experience the natural beauty flowing in time and space.
The old pines are towering, showing the charm and momentum of the mansion. Past through the pine forest, the view spreads forward again. The old pine trees tower up the clouds and cast their shadows onto the lawn and walls. This landscape forms a spectacular entrance ceremony and a magnificent mansion temperament, which consists of building, pines and rockeries.
Walk in the stepping stone which surrounded by cloud eye curl, feel the ancient wonders. Out of the winding path, the space suddenly spread out. The pine stone as the island, the gravel as the water, the quaint stone step is placed in the middle, walking on the top, the cloud smoke, and a wonderful landscape of the stepping stone cloud is suddenly eye-catching. Between the steps, like walking in ancient city upstairs and walking in the long river of history. The space overlaps here, and the landscape atmosphere makes people feel the beauty of historical accumulation.
Strong contrast, build bright and cheerful living environment. The pine forest lawn is transparent and the sights are smooth . The terrain is gently undulating, surrounded by pine forests. The architecture is the background, dotted with the nature. As the most open space in the entire exhibition area, it is hoped that through the contrast of the large opening and closing space, to create a pleasant and accessible landscape atmosphere and have a pleasant living experience.
Along the path to the deep forest，we can see the towering green pines. Past through the pine forest, the space suddenly becomes long and narrow from aggregated in the beginning, which once again forms the rhythmic change. Rockeries and ancient pines serve as focal points, leading people into the depths of the trail. Where does the path lead to? Home or the next surprise!
Verdant pine trees and strange stones create picturesque homes. The back space is designed for dry landscape with pine trees and stones. The building is abrided and simplified, the pure white outer wall forms a canvas, and the pine trees and strange stones echo each other, the cloud shadow changes, just like walking into a verdant ink painting.
▼白墙为布，时间为笔，无数丹青尽现世。 White wall as cloth, time for as pen, the scenery changes infinitely.
▼不同时间下的云影变化 Changes of cloud shadow at different times
Time ，space and the viewer is the eternal theme of design. As time changes, the viewer changes too. So does the picturesque scene…
