Chuangyi Shance：The Bahe River flows through the northeast of the ancient city of Xi’an. Here is a new district with a historic context in the city. The green belt along the river provides an extending image of the city and the VankeCheerful Bay Exhibition Area is looming at the west side.
The looming effect is from the design of the sales department: The first floor is cantilevered to raise the reception hall to the second level, providing an extending view of the landscape along the Bahe River.
▼平面图 Master Plan
The entrance of the exhibition area is in the southwest corner of the site, and the model room is located on the further west side. Therefore, the visiting movement line becomes a circle: enter from the southwest corner entrance, take the eastbound line to the sales office, go upstairs to view the river and reception hall, finally go downstairs to the model room in the west.
The design of the inward enclosure, circular movement lines, internal garden, and external borrowing scenes are in accordance with the structured routine of the traditional garden. Therefore, the landscape of this exhibition area is presumed to be a garden with a cloister, which echoes with the ancient city.
However, the style of this project is modern. In the routine of the classical garden, abstract purification is required to achieve simplicity.
The inwardly enclosed garden has doors and walls. In this garden, the door and the wall are abstracted as a horizontal and vertical interlaced plane, which quietly presents the existence of the garden. The white and black stone with orthogonal lines reflects the flowing shape of the building with a flying roof edge.
A rough stonewall across the entrance stands in the garden. The water curtain on the wall flows down, bringing vivid sound to the garden. The view of the inner garden is ethereal. The pool water reflects the sky, the vegetation reveals the vitality, and the stones stand sparsely among them. However, the corridor has become the main character here.
Here, the cloister serves as a guide and also is the opposite scene of the other side of the river. How to make the moving path more vivid? How to present the opposite scenery without the traditional design tricks such as the pavilion and leaning trees? We need to transform the corridor. In fact, traditional corridors are never boring.
Light and shadow are the most gentle and effective sculptures for architecture, as well as corridors. Thus, we introduced to light. Then the corridor has a changing effect of light and dark and was divided into different sequences.
Frame view and opposite view are the classic visual organization of traditional gardens. The pavilions in the sequence become frame and scenes: the different parts of the corridor was extended or stretched to present interlaced and departed spaces. Changes in width and direction provide the space more frames of scenes, just like the window view of the traditional gardens, humble and not over-exaggerated.
In the transformation of the corridor, the opposite scenery also naturally occurs: the corridor is no longer a continuous line, but a combination of the convex or concave, or high or low pavilion. The sidewall of the corridor is a white wall with a rough surface. The vertical texture is like a traditional Chinese paper curtain pattern. The landscape is like a painting on the paper responding to the other side of the river with grass, stone, trees, and shadows on the water surface at this side.
This is a garden with a loop circulation, and a garden with a corridor as the main scene: the corridor has walls, with the walls as paper and trees as painting colors; the corridor has different sequences, with light as the pen and shadow as the painting colors.
The corridor said: let there be light. There was light. Then, surrounded by the light and shadow of the cloister, this garden was born along the Bahe River.
