Architects initially tried to use symbolic architectural language to establish a connection with the historical environment. In terms of layout, the water drop shape is placed diagonally into the site, which not only elongates the moving line from the city interface to the entrance, but also makes the water drop shape more intuitive in front of the eyes. The profound eaves overhang and large area glass applications create a directionless floating roof, which presents a charming tranquility with the swaying shadows of the trees.
The architectural form replicates the direction of the mountain and lake, and is rotated and dislocated on the second floor of the building to form an 18-meter-long viewing platform, which outlines a highly sculptural form with natural and flexible curves. The arc-shaped exterior wall is like a blank canvas, and with the technique of white space, nature becomes the creator of architectural picture scrolls. With the simple and elegant tones, the charm of light and shadow are intertwined, which together outline a simple and pure world.
The designer carries out the second creation by extracting, analyzing, and abstracting the shape of Ruyi to express the contemporary design with new materials and construction methods. In this construction, a steel structure is used to make a curved shape. The entire facade is covered by white aluminum plates with each plate processed into curves with different arcs through precise calculations. They are perfectly spliced to form a streamlined shape, forming a sense of modern technology and creating the charm of Ruyi. Every design detail is so fully displayed.
The design is a massive piece that rises and is projected as a metaphor of freedom. Unasur has been designed as a sculptural connotation to surprise and show a different perspective depending on the point of view. The structure results in a positive, proactive and strong iconic image system. The scheme is also the largest armor cantilever in South America with 56 meters without support, according to several studies; modeling technology, drive and creativity. The minimalism of the elements on the exterior highlights the volume, as well as the smoothness of its architecture.
Shuifa's four "stones" arrangement design is inspired by Wang Wei's verse of “Rain passes in the pristine mountain, refreshing autumn evening. Moon shines among the pine, clear spring flows on stones”. The main structure is assembled out of white perforated panels, the density of the perforation of the plate gradually changes from top to bottom according to the function of the building interior. More transparency is given to display area, and less for office space. In general, this subtle gradual change in transparancy creates a pure cultural motifs.
This is a community clubhouse that shows the future life of the community. The designer, inspired by the shape of the rolling hills, creates the surficial landscape which extends down to the visual surface of the building. In this way, the building's perception of solidity will be weakened to fully integrate into the urban space. It also reduces the interference of the building to the urban environment and maintains the continuity of the urban landscape space.
