Depicting the bustling vision in the open land is almost a common mission for the exhibition hall of a large projects. We want to create a field of unique experience, so as to stimulate people’s willingness to explore and participate.
We try to create a new relationship between building and its outer space, thus creating a new place experience. Let's call this association "ambiguous boundary" for the moment.
The project is part of cultural and educational facilities for the nearly 1 million square meters Central Park residential area. Reviewing the traditional Chinese building and classic garden, courtyard is one of the most powerful spatial forms. It almost forms the core feature of Chinese traditional architectural space. And the building interface of the courtyard is the wall and corridor. The two also bring the courtyard different spatial characteristics: Enclosure or penetration,closed or open.
While we try to create a new architectural prototype for the definition of the courtyard space, we finally find the combination between the wall and the corridor — it is just the corridor composed of short wall, with the combination of different forms and modules, forming the diversity definition for courtyard space, also constituting a multiple place experience. Its form is free from the wall of the building, intended to melt in the outdoor place. “Wall corridor” has a unified whole scale, –6 meters high, 4 meters wide, which defines the boundaries of the entire site, while creating a special “circle scene domain”. When the boundary has thickness , daily life and art activities then have a space vector, it can be a paradise for kids to play hide and seek after school and can also be a culture and art gallery of the community.
