Longmenshan Town Woyun Platform / Archermit
“Woyun Platform” is a public constructing integrating cultural show and scene expertise. the bottom flooring is suspended to type a totally open multi-functional public area, the center and high are cultural show and leisure expertise areas, the place there are mountains and water above the clouds, and a ardour for all times beneath the clouds.
In the course of the preliminary design visits, we had been involved about an issue shared by 4 villages inside 1.5 kilometers of the positioning, which can be an necessary downside going through urbanization across the world-The decline and disappearance of the normal social order within the villages. On this context, we put ahead the idea of “Village Parlor”.
we took the character of Longmen Mountain because the inspiration for the design and got here up with the picture of “Reclining Cloud”. “Reclining clouds” means mendacity excessive within the cloud and mist, and means “returning to seclusion”. “Woyun Platform” expresses Archermit’s ideas and explorations on “individuals’s interior longing to return to nature, nature, and custom”.
The pillars on the bottom flooring develop upward like a bamboo forest, suspended to type a public area the central constructing takes the picture of a panda hanging on the highest of the bamboo forest to construct a suspended hemisphere. The shallow water on the roof is scattered with two “floating stones” of various sizes, the which means of “floating stones” is derived from the boulders of Feilai Peak shaped by the geological exercise of “glacial drifting gravel” in Longmen Mountain and the river floating stones within the valley of the Jianjiang River. The panda’s partial type and black and white colours turn into the panda-themed components of the inside area and furnishings.
At evening, the large dome on the backside of the overhead turns right into a poetic star universe by way of lighting design. We cut up the large dome into greater than 2,600 single curved aluminum panels by way of parametric design, which facilitates set up and successfully controls the price of the dome. The holes of various sizes on the panels are randomly distributed by three specs of 12mm, 25mm, and 40mm in diameter by way of parametric management, and the holes of every panel are organized otherwise to make sure that the holes of the entire dome present a random distribution.
For the built-in lighting of the dome cavity, we deserted the expensive and complex development strategy of the LED customized bulb hanging methodology and selected to set LED highlight aspect wash at key nodes to manage the beam angle, in order that the sunshine types gentle reflection on the aspect wall of the perforated plate gap and at last types a practical and huge starry sky imagery on the skin of the aluminum plate. And thru the dynamic meteor on the fundamental entrance, the distinction between the celebrities and the starry sky on the sunken sq., the distinction between seen and hidden, inside and out of doors, strengthens the dreamlike spatial temper of the entire backside area at evening.
