▲ 富平國際陶藝博物館群主館，法國館0097 // Fuping international Ceramics Museum Group Main Building, French Pavilion 0097
Due to its special historical process, the Loess Plateau has formed a kind of earthy landscape with thick and thick gullies. The Pottery Museum is located in the countryside, surrounded by fruit trees, farmland and tombs. The scenery varies from season to year. I hope that the museum will invade, do not break the original landscape logic of the land, avoid the colonization of the city buildings to the countryside, but do not want to simply copy the traditional village buildings. Therefore, the building must be subordinated to the texture of the land, close to the land, and integrated into the rural landscape of the base.
The building itself should be a modern ceramic work.
What I am most obsessed with in pottery is the hole in the pottery utensils. The holes stretch in the direction of the line, and the light is reflected from an unknown place, giving people a kind of delusion, a kind of wonder, and different scenery can be seen outside the hole. Imagine a field mouse or ant crossing a hole and having fun in the field.
The use of brick arches in museums is both accidental and inevitable. One day, I chatted with a construction worker. He told me that the farmers in Fuping are best at building brick arches. Many rural houses are brick kilns, and the arch span can reach up to 10 meters. I overthrew the previous idea, spent a few nights drawing a few sketches, and then found two white radishes in the hotel kitchen, asked the chef to evenly cut into pieces, recombined, and completed the main hall model.
▲ 西安世界園藝博覽會灞上風情服務區 // Xi'an World Horticultural Exposition
The World Expo’s Shangshang Service Area is located to the east of the World Expo, facing the main entrance of the World Expo, across the tower from the Weihe River in the east, and the landmark of the World Garden Association, the hills where the Chang'an Tower is located. . The base is a natural undulating forest land with a small stream running through it, and the natural environment is good.
"Like Heaven and Earth" - Chinese Environmental Image
"Outoral scenery" - the dream of Chinese people's life
"New Quadrangle" - the small universe of Chinese life
"New materials for old materials" - walls that will breathe
The design concept of the service area is derived from the enlightenment of the base. Chinese philosophy pays attention to "the heaven and the earth, the land legal person, the human law, the Tao law and nature". The wisdom of China emphasizes "taking advantage of the situation", the Chinese realm pursues "the unity of heaven and man", and the ancient Chang'an construction reflects such oriental thoughts. Han Chang'an City It symbolizes the Milky Way with the water, and symbolizes the stars with the palace and the tomb. It creates the grand pattern of the unity of heaven and man and the image of heaven. The stream and its topography of the base of the Shangshang service area coincides with the image of “Tianhan”. For this reason, the designer is like a heavenly land, surrounded by streams—the Milky Way. All buildings are arranged in a constellation manner, which is maintained according to local conditions. The ups and downs of the original natural environment of the base have inherited the great tradition of ancient Chang'an and highlighted the theme of the Xi'an World Expo “Heaven and Man, Creative and Natural”. The method of heaven and earth is not only reflected in the architectural layout. The lighting design and greening design around the Shangri-style service area also adopts the astrological layout. If you look at it at night, you will find that the lights in the courtyard are also like stars, along with buildings and streams. Make up a complete star map.
▲ 賈平凹文學藝術館 // Jia Pingwa Literature and Art Museum
Jia Pingwa Literature and Art Museum chose to rebuild an old building built in the 1970s. The original building is a brick-concrete structure with two floors above and below, and three floors in total. The overall layout is unremarkable, but it is located in the historical part of the campus and is one of the school's historic buildings.
We believe that this museum should inherit the legacy of the school in the 1970s and continue it; it should maintain the authenticity of the 1970s and refuse to whitewash; it should legalize the old building and combine it with new functions to give it a new upgrade and give it new Vitality. Therefore, we have established a principle that the building should retain its appearance and characteristics in the 1970s after the renovation. Here, history and reality should be a dialogue, not a relationship.
The original revelation of the design came from the sun. After many live experiences, the designers found that for this dull and unpretentious building, the hope of light and shadow is its most attractive feature. From 6:00 am to 19:00 pm, taking a picture every hour and then playing it continuously, you can see an interesting change in the volume made up of shadows. Light and shadow is the soul hidden in this building. So the architect chose light and shadow as the focus of the design, adding a tortuous gallery to the southeast of the original building. The shape of the light gallery comes from the superposition of the building's light and shadow 24 hours a day, and it also symbolizes the rolling hills and villages of Jia Ping's hometown. At that time, the light flowed, the long shadow formed by the light gallery, crossed the wall of the old building, stroked the writer's verses engraved on the wall, climbed the bookshelves - light and shadow, new windows and old walls, breeze and green trees, the city and The country, literature and art, time and space, weaving a rich image, a poetic character of literature.
