Thanks TROP: terrains + open space,Weimar Group for authorizing the publication of the project on mooool, Text description provided by TROP: terrains + open space,Weimar Group.
TROP:Terrains+Open Space+Weimar Group:IN Art Center is located in Qujiang new district, Xi An, China, next to the third South Highway. North to our site there is a civic green belt with 10m level change and visitor has to cross the highway and a pedestrian bridge to approach the site, which both cause the difficulty with pedestrian and visual accessibility. We hope that while solving this problem by developer investment, more value for Xi An citizens can be brought as well. With this purpose, we firstly design a series of iconic and sculptural curving railings, dancing like a ribbon on this park to attract people’s attention. With this dancing ribbon, the important nodes and existing dead-end footbridge are connected to encourage public activates happening in this park. It is also as a developer’s gift to the society, thereby enhancing Sunac’s reputation and branding value.
From the beginning of 2019, Weimar Design has the honor to participate in the construction design and plants design of the project ——Xi’an Rongchuang Qujiangyin. For nearly a year, the whole process was such beautiful and arduous with continuous communication and collision. We repeatedly deliberate and simulate every detail, solve every problem, and implement new ideas that emerge suddenly. Finally, Xi’an Rongchuang Qujiangyin is delivered perfectly.

The project extracts the nature elements: lighting, water, planting and terrain to transform it into parts of art work in Grand Milestone, inspiring visitors to appreciate the peaceful and natural landscape both indoors and outdoors while watch the exhibition.
舞动的飘带 Ribbon dancing
The design without soul cannot impress anyone. In the reinforced concrete city, the dancing ribbon in the green forest will take us to find the lost temperature.From isolated circular tubes to meandering steel plates, it hides in the awn grass, or climbs on the terrain, or shuttles among the lush, connecting the inside and outside of the site, continuous, ups and downs, from the first floor to the second floor, from the footpath to the overpass, from the roof to the park. Without the bulky reinforced concrete and the cold steel, it draws a white and flexible ribbon on the site, lasting forever.
It’s a dragon-shaped continuous winding handrail, looks like just a simple curve, but the process has gone through several rounds of repeated deliberation and test.
There are many large ornamental grasses in the park around the ribbon. The planting designer cleverly used three types of ornamental grass in the site——pampasgrass, miscanthus and pennisetum. In planting design, we use the method of High and low collocation, evergreen and deciduous collocation. These three kinds of plants do not fall down even in winter. They still keep the seasonal alternation. We hope to share people a story about the “life change” through the plants’ seasonal change.
We used hundreds of Sapium and cedar trees to recreate that long-lost forest in Xi’an Rongchuang Qujiangyin. We used a large area of ornamental grass to awaken everyone’s softest inner heart. That white ribbon is like people’s expectation and exploration of life, will keep moving forward.
孤独的舞者-光之院 Lonely dancer-Light Court
After arrival, all the sequences and experiences are re-arranged. Starting from drop-off, parking, visiting, resting, chatting and eventually going back, designer provides everyone a unique VIP experience.
In order to hide the four columns at arrival court, thousands of small stainless steel pieces become a translucent art installation. From outside, it’s a square that echoes the form of the architecture, but when passing through inside this light court after parking, it is an unexpected circular space with illusory refection effect. During sunny day, the shadow of the lonely dancing tree can be seen vaguely once arrived light court.

Every tree is a story. Fortunately, we have participated in every story.
Good-looking skins are the same, but the interesting soul is the one in a million. We had crossed multiple provinces and cities for finding the tree we want. After repeated comparisons, finally we find the perfect one for the design.It seemed lonely in a seemingly cold and industrialized space. But the different senses created by the connection of the tree and the venue, the mirror, the light and shadow, and the environment. All these interactions give the “lonely dancer” a new life and vitality.
Here is the stage for her. The stage only belongs to her. She is a dancer. She will be graceful while only standing quietly. When the sun drips from the atrium and diffuses in the sparkling installation, everything is blooming with the light, it is just gorgeous.
行走的水苑 Walking water garden
Original design of water courtyard was separated into two parts: a water garden and an art gallery. Beautiful, but not special. Utilizing different level of gallery roof and water court, we firstly propose a water fall to create a vertical view for this garden. Meanwhile, the noise from water fall allows people getting into a calm and relaxing atmosphere from the modern busy and high pressure life. To be more fun, the top pond has been divided into three ponds at different levels. Then, six light boxes introduce light into the art spaces under three ponds and water directly falls to the 6 light boxes with the swaying tallow trees. These all together becomes the arts in this gallery.
When visitors passed by the water garden, they met Sapium trees passing through a three-layer water surface, and then transferred to the art gallery. The space under the three-layer water surface reshapes the layout of the art gallery. The dappled light and shadow, the flowing water curtain and the swaying Sapium in the middle of the lighting box become the main art exhibits in the gallery. Among them, there are very important 18 Sapium trees standing here.
18 Sapium trees, 24 hours, a whole night working, the early selection of seedlings for each tree, the corresponding position node of each tree … perfectly presents the artistic atmosphere and spatial structure that this design wants to convey structure.
When you enter the space, no matter from the corridor (front), the glass corridor (back) at the back and the second floor overpass (top), you will find that the Sapium in each position has its own style, but you can never see the whole picture.
森林的魔幻 The magic of the forest
Magic forest is our most proud creation.In order to find a better way of presentation, we are based on the original design inspiration, on which we carry out subversion, search, immersion and reconstruction.
We get inspiration from wild natural forest and delicate natural water garden. Ingeniously borrowed the east and west plots of the art gallery to design a magical forest in the space mixed with concrete. The light of the magical world hits through the canopy, and light and shadow form beams of light. Time is still here. The boundary between light and darkness has never been so clear, but it is so coordinated and comfortable.
Everyone enters this magic forest, what they see, hear and feel will be different. The change of plants and the flourishing and withering of leaves brought by seasonal change will also bring people into four different light and shadow experiences in spring, summer, autumn and winter. Let’s take a walk here and feel the light, shadow and nature.
There is a light outdoor revolving staircase in this site. At first, because of span, structure, construction period and other problems, they are trying to turn the creative revolving staircase to mediocrity, which is often encountered in the process of project landing. But we stick to the original design without any compromise. From the scheme to the construction landing, in a series of communication and collision with the manufacturer and the construction party, the rotating staircase is finally restored to the ground to a great extent and presented in an elegant manner.
莫奈的花园 Monet’s garden
If there is a forest in everyone’s mind, the roof on the second floor is a secret garden in everyone’s heart.
On the roof garden, the up and down curving walkway and semi-private seating enhances the peaceful and relaxing experience. The different texture and color of grass and flowers creates a contrast with the delicate planting style on the ground floor. Not only the planting effect during winter in northern China has been taken into the consideration, also the mixed plantings attract insects and butterflies to build an eco-friendly environment. Seen from the higher floors of Art Center, the entire roof garden is also an art work, an impressionist painting by Monet.
We boldly used dozens of ornamental grasses to create this unique garden. Visited in many nurseries in Chengdu and Shanghai, we selected garden materials suitable for the extremely cold weather in Xi’an. In the selection of ornamental grass, we should pay attention to the selection of the vertical type of the main varieties to ensure the effectiveness even when plants are withered in winter. At the same time, some kinds of evergreen ornamental grasses, such as various pampas grasses have been added, which will also make the scenery impressive in the withered and depressed winter. All kinds of perennial plants are interspersed with each other to increase the romantic and artistic atmosphere.
In the design method, the traditional block and dot shape are put aside, and the aesthetic feeling of lines is no longer emphasized. The mixed planting form is boldly adopted, and various varieties are mixed to blur the Bush lines, so as to strive for a natural garden form of integration.There has never been such a garden, and its life change is so obvious and distinctive. Calm down and get lost in the passage of time.
Every listening of ideas, every collision of ideas, every detail deliberation, every overthrow of drawings, every on-site proofing, every bold attempt… We hope to create Qujiangyin that more innovative, more detailed, and more unusual. Actually, we did it. All the hard work and efforts were worth it. An excellent work is to gradually present a perfect appearance in such constant exploration. Thank you for everyone who has contributed to this project. It is your preciseness and excellence that created Xi’an rongchuang Qujiangyin in a perfect way.
