Valley of Wind project is located in the Shine Hills, Shunyi, Beijing. The space narrow, viewing angle is narrow lead, stronger through space property, site visitors can not produce effect on the retention. Design needs to solve the problems of the existing staff can not stay, while meeting the rigid conditions. This transformation will not just be the upgrading of the existing landscape, we hope to draw visitors into the block and longer pauses in the grounds. By creating a comfortable space atmosphere, in order to achieve a more reasonable space use and stronger playability.
Valley of Wind, Imagining a beauty of artistic conception, Walking in a valley with bamboos, the breeze blowing, the shadows of the leaves and figures dancing on the ground. Design space and the crowd “communication” mode, tourists walk on both sides a narrow lane in the construction business, as the bamboo forest at the shuttle in the valley. The construction of the column was initially analyzed by the 600X600 matrix layout, Establish and constructe points. While incorporate the necessary conditions for the site, Including the Four meters Fire Line, block building entrance, window facing and existing tube well. Intersect and subtract space matrix, establish basic landscape columns, the matrix space is optimized and increase the vertical space variation of the matrix to reach the final spatial arrangement.
The column divide space, resulting in cut off in sight, half-empty half real, riching people experience and use of space level. Form，visually oriented and spaces lines are uniform, reduce the pressure of the pinch and improve the comfort of travel. Reducing passability properties of the depth permeability space to extend the residence time of the crowd and create three-dimensional spatial experience rich block.
Column A is a free-wheeling seat made of metal with a height of 400mm. It adopts an eccentric design. Bearings are installed between the seat body and the column to make the seat body rotate freely around the center of the column. From the use of perspective, the column offer visitors leisure grounds, and bearing system means more fun and convenience. For tourists who are waiting or shopping, you can take a short break. Those who are familiar with the two seats turn to each other, among the stranger, they can adjust the direction of the seats for themselves, so as to maximize the use of functions and facilitate gathering or discrete use. For children, it is not only a “toy” that can be played, also discover different ways of using it.
Column B from the bottom view comprising : the column body, the hidden lamp part, and the spiral impeller column head. The stigma is a spiral impeller, rotates with the wind, wind energy is converted into electrical energy to make the built-in lamp glow, It can be used as a street lamp at night. Column C-pillar body is a spiral impeller, and the material is metal, which can be manually grasped and rotated to attract the crowd. Column D-pillar has a built-in light strip for use as a street light.
Design summary，by the landscape in the column space given to four different functions and features, generate more visitors for self-discovery value. Four kinds of column both artistic and practical value to meet the needs of different groups. Increase the communication between the users and the space of the venue, enhance the interactivity and interest of the block, can attract the crowd into the block. In the block, visitors can choose to walk directly or walk through“the forest”. Meanwhile, the column can keep the crowd to actively participate in the interaction, and people use it in various ways.
