HWA：The project is located in caijia group, beibei district, Chongqing. The west, north and east sides of the site are adjacent to the natural mountain, and the south side is adjacent to tongkang road, the main road of the new town. The current site is a hill about 60 meters high. The sample area is built on the hill. The height difference between the main building and the road along the street is about 6 meters. The nature of the land used for the project is park green space. The sample area will be handed over to the municipal government for use as part of the cultural building of the city park.
Considering the public nature of the project and the original emotional memory of the site, different from the common ” enclosed” and ” inward” exhibition centers, the design hopes to create an open, artistic, light and close to nature place, like a suspended art museum located in the forest.
总平面图 Master Plan
Art gallery: public, art, imagination
The straight line belongs to artificial, and the curve belongs to nature. Through the contrast between curve and straight, outgoing and introversion, hardness and softness, the building is separated from nature. It is like a city of sky above floating forest.
To strengthen the elevation difference in mountains, make the artificial construction separate from nature, and highlight the suspension feeling of buildings. Site panorama, contradictory and unified whole.
Forests: landscape art, memory, touch, hear
Nature is an eternal theme, which preserves and restores the original tableland and meadow features in the site in an artistic way, responding to the cultural memory of the site and Chongqing people’s innate special emotions for mountains.
Straight large platform entrance, personality and conflict, surrounded by the curvature of the earth.
Standing on the overhanging viewing platform, you can hear rippling cascading waterfalls, touching soft and rough Pennisetum, swaying with the wind and splashing water, associating with the atmosphere and feelings in the forest, and endowing the site with natural emotional attributes.
Suspension: conflict, disappearance, separation
The suspended viewing platform is a combination of hard and soft. Wooden material and glass railing, blurring the boundary between the building and nature. Cascading waterfalls in the forest, the wind blowing grass, flowing water and cicada singing.
The huge mirror pool reflects the skylight, nature and architecture, Artificial and nature here is harmonious.
