潮汐间的天空之境——绿城 · 南通诚园
The realm of the sky between the tides——Greentown·Nantong Chengyuan
Bridge: This bridge reaches to the Yellow Sea in the south and looks to the Yangtze River in the south. The pattern of "water embracing the city and water embracing the city" makes the city an "inaccessible city" which is isolated from the north and south of Jiangsu Province.Therefore, the appearance of "bridge" facilitated the travel of Nantong people, and also promoted the exchanges and exchanges between this city and other cities."Bridge" promotes the prosperity of Nantong's economy and breeds the city's culture, which has become an indispensable link for the future development of Nantong.

Tidal flat: Different from the traditional river basin in the south, the water area of Nantong is more extensive, among which the coastal area is dominated by tidal flat.This zone forms the "tidal flat" geomorphologic feature of local shoal entering water.Thus, when the tides of the four seasons come, the sky lights up a dreamlike scene of home at sea.
"The sea and the sky are the same color, the mirror of the sky" intent reference map
Featured with Nantong clear the vast waters landscape design as the basement, tidal flats, covered Bridges, boat elements are extracted and modern design language is used, making active created mirror of suspension bridge on the ground and echo of Nantong important elements of "bridge", and "tide" left the line of mark, which together form a "mirror of the harmony, the sky".
Necessary project is located in Jiangsu Nantong Chongchuan district road and rich north road interchange, of which the design with "water" as the medium of series connection has the three dimensional structure: the entrance is to greet the guests avenue, woods and beach water, which together constitute the ground between the buildings and landscape nodes, public open space of the visual corridor and the view of the "garden in water".
迎宾To meet the guests
The landscape emphasizes the integration of architecture and environment, in which the main building volume of 16 meters high is set against the landscape wall of 3.6 meters and erect plants.This allows the two-story building to float like a box above the landscape.
The unified and simple landscape wall continues to the interior of the site so that the entrance naturally forms the ceremonial and distinguished welcoming courtyard. In order to meet the artistic and functional needs of the design, a circular water surface is placed in the middle of the space to organize the clear traffic direction for the arrival and return crowds of the municipal pedestrian, vehicle and drop-off crowds.
The second avenue of the mall sequence and the spatial circulation before and after permeate, which forms the flow and transition of the landscape belt space through the method of borrowing the landscape barrier. Along the way, the trees are shaded and combined with the seasonal changes in nature.The black stone of wall corner is abstracted "boat", among them the mirror surface layer and sunlight, tree shadow form mottled form of light and shadow change.

From the tidal flat, the inspiration of the water courtyard is found, which restores the tidal flat in the coastal transition zone and makes the clear boundary between land and water disappear. ZSD uses abstract techniques to extract the lines of ridges crisscrossing and varying in depth on the beach, so as to design a series of "geometric broken line" paths and "three-dimensional fold" interfaces that run through the whole field and correspond to the architectural design.
The large-scale water courtyard is combined with the original design of the mirror-bridge structure with water steps, so as to form the natural behavior orientation of the space and place. At the same time, the response of the building to its surroundings is defined. The main body of the bridge is the center of gravity of the overall configuration of the site, which simulates the intersection of rivers and lakes, the relationship between bridges and roads, and the mutual penetration of the mirror bridge and the canal. It can be found that the water bottom presents a dizzy effect through the changes of different materials. Plants and rubble symbolize the wetland after the ebb。
The mirror bridge uses the combination of stainless steel and stone as the main material .This material provides flexible long span space while avoiding the separation and shielding of the line of sight from the water facing environment by conventional load-bearing wall columns.At the same time, the light pollution and high temperature problems caused by 'traditional mirror stainless steel' are eliminated, leaving a more gentle and soothing refractive effect. Reflections in the water and these represent a dynamic and changing natural experience.
The landing of the mirror bridge in technology is the difficulty of this project, which is limited by many factors of the material itself: cost, material size, thickness, stitching method, surface layer fixing method, bridge deck slope, facing Angle, etc.Therefore, we had to pass the digital modeling and simulation for many times, which required us to carry out the overall measurement of the floor stone size, the bridge inner stone size and the stainless steel material size, and we also made detailed data labels for each stone and stainless steel piece of the bridge deck according to the practical requirements. At the same time, we made a comparison of actual samples on site, which made the final implementation plan determined.
