Sparse forests and grass slopes， pleasant water banks.This is an oasis in the city,A voiceless sound in the bustling!
Xinglong Lake is located in Chengdu Science City in the “one center and three cities” of Tianfu New District. As a comprehensive water ecological management project integrating flood control， irrigation， ecology， landscape， etc.， it is surrounded by trees and beautiful mountains and rivers， which is an “ecological kidney” for municipal planning and construction.
The Lake Art is located on the grassy green space here， and its predecessor was a small coffee shop. The designer injects the mission of international cultural exchange on the modern tone， presenting an innovative and permanent visual experience. Through the combination of people‘s life and world art， it stimulates the vitality of urban art creation.
The appearance of the reconstructed building has a subversive and innovative performance. Surrounding the original three container-style iron-clad buildings， the basic geometrical structures are interspersed and cut in two-dimensional and three-dimensional spaces， forming shapes scattered in the space， and thus dividing different areas.
The functional attributes of space are very rich. From the reception area， the salon area to the exhibition area， the flow of movement is immersive and coherent， but it dramatically increases the possibility of five senses. By means of deconstruction， the whole gallery has a spatial relationship of indoor， semi indoor and outdoor.
With the rapid iteration of urban architecture and development， if the designer wants to create an advanced international space view， it must be associated with the surrounding environment and human life. The design releases images of Chengdu， such as mountains， trees and clouds in the spatial form， trying to arouse the perception and imagination between people and architecture， human and nature， and to lead the citizens to experience art from the space， and to witness the modern and future of the city.
Due to the dense plum rain and humid climate in Chengdu， the blue sky and white clouds seem to have become a rare longing in the hearts of citizens. Therefore， the waterproof ceiling above the building is the interpretation of the geometric modern design vocabulary of “clouds”， which not only responds to the climate characteristics， but also represents the public’s expectation for the future， so that the whole scene manipulates light and shadow， virtual and real， and finally realizes the seamless integration with the building.
Under the “cloud”， the original building is surrounded by lines that strengthen the sense of strength and volume of cutting changes to achieve a sense of spatial independence. The collision of black and white colors and the combination of stone and cloud form a dialogue between mountain and sky. The creation of such a stone sculpture with a sense of solid cutting makes the whole building very recognizable in terms of the identity of the facade， and stands on the lawn and complements the natural scenery.
In addition， the design of the entrance firmly grasps the audience tone of the art gallery and explores a geometric space related to “space-time” and “art”. Based on the concept of “tunnel”， the designer uses extremely tense materials and forms through combination and fission to shape the depth of the space and focus on people‘s visual points. At the same time， it also connects indoor and outdoor， past and future， China and the world.
