When we praise a house, we mean to say that we like the way the house suggests to us.
—— Alleins de Botton, the architecture of happiness
There are clouds in the mountains and dawn on the water. As the birthplace of Yongjia School, Wenzhou has been the happiest city in China for many years. This ancient city, which has not been changed for thousands of years and whose culture has been passed down from generation to generation, has deposited a spiritual culture of hard work and constant innovation under the legend of the prosperous businessmen. Behind the construction of this happy city, perhaps the idea of “Smile”has become its enduring, never-ending “Key”.
What do we bring to the city as we enter it? After years of intensive cultivation in Wenzhou, Xu Hui finally handed in a satisfactory answer in his own way: a smiling way of life. Smile is the design concept to further connect the city and the humanities. In the Wenzhou Xuhui Smiling Space Station Project, Umakai Light Years Design office based on the regional characteristics and customer needs of the depth of insight, to Ip Xu Bear for the planet navigation, through the construction of multi-dimensional scenes, the dialogue of new and old materials, and the application of ingenious design, we have created the “Interstellar space station of Smile”, which can travel in the vast universe and can be imagined, in response to the xuhui “Build a better life with heart”brand mission.
As an important urban texture of the building, is the era of the background of the record, but also the design approach to cut into the carrier. Based on the complete space form and architectural texture of the site, by retaining the original architectural form and integrating it into the modern business model, and combining the landscape environment and commercial packaging, the innovation of life style is taken as the starting point, “Smile Planet Smile Space Station”will be built around the life style of the Planet. It will start a trip to the Planet in the “Space station”such as emotion workshop.
MOOD WORKSHOP POP-UP SHOP
The city is in the process of evolution, the old urban texture is covered and replaced by the new elements, how to respond with emotion to the relationship between the times and the architecture is the designer’s primary design clue. Smile mood workshop pop-up shop, to set sail (emotion collection landing module) — exploration (multi-emotion display module) — Changyou (Emotion Plaza Transit module) — migration (emotion selling return module) for the story traction, it reproduces a surreal world of emotions and egos for us through a planetary carrier.
When Alan Shepard looked down at Earth from the Moon during the Apollo 14 mission in 1971, the vastness of space left a human tear. The emotion, becomes records the history important moment the moving symbol.
Planetary embryos, fragments, Burnout in space and time, the moment the light stopped, the portal suddenly opened. Stainless steel, mirror and other materials as the first intervention language, enriching the cabin facade expression, but also between the virtual and real hazy access point to find the past and future.
Emotions are recorded and recorded during the stay, just as the lonely moments of the star Lord in the exquisitely designed spaceship in the space traveler. The universe, in the miracle to find design and emotional commonality, the wish tree of the egg ball into the smile of the planet’s “Admission ticket.”.
The universe is vast, vast and dark, and when man is the only known intelligence, loneliness and Curiosity Drive Man to space and explore, the contradiction between arguments and evidence on the scale and probability problem in Fermi’s paradox is thus lost and empty.
The form of the sphere creates an immersive experience of exploration, linking the architectural space with the movement of the heavenly bodies between the structure and the light. It’s like stepping into a sci-fi slice of the universe and escaping the shackles of the real world in an art installation.
The display module shows visitors the multi-faceted nature of the emotional planet: the pioneering experiment of the smiling coin, the ambiguous dialogue of the interstellar blind box, the freehand tension of the pocket forest, in the context of the brutalism, “Collecting”, every emotional roller coaster.
The emptiness of the universe itself floats on the surface, but the infinite world that has emerged since then is transformed by energy. Like a spacecraft moored in the vastness of space, the dome of the transit capsule delivers energy in a confrontation between glass and stainless steel, “Light”and “Heavy.
The space of the smiling light-emitting device “Intervenes”between the emotional core and the humanistic care as the machine translation brings the visitors new hope and energy. Wall columns, curved corridors, shaped beams and other forms of interspersed with each other, making the trip more poetic imagination.
Each return of interstellar exploration is both the end and the beginning of a new era. As Kim Stanley Robinson writes in the Mars trilogy, “The tops of the dunes recede into Shadow, and the Sun, the size of a button, sinks into the deepest depths of the west.”Amid the alternation of the new world and ancient civilizations, the migration of space, like the Sun, will rise and fall as usual.
The mood sells the capsule as the smiling planet’s Hope Bank and the end of the expedition. The spiral mirror tube combination is like a space-time node linking the outer universe with the planet itself. The limited gifts of the planet after being exchanged with the smiling coin are the commemorative stamps of this journey.
In the last century, when Alan de Botton discussed the relationship between architecture and the humanities, he found that there was an inseparable relationship between material architecture and the happiness of human settlements, the “Beauty”of space dominates our mood to a large extent. The Wenzhou Xuhui Smiling Space Station, a landmark of the city that responds to architecture with emotion, is inspiring the beautiful life of living in the time and Space Shuttle. ▲平面图
