All the people are running towards a place called future. The prosperous cities are at the front, followed by small and medium-sized towns, and then scattered villages.
The project is located in the northeast corner of Fengxian new town, Shanghai, which was once a natural mountain forest in the countryside. With the change of time, today's Fengxian has been transformed into a modern, scientific and artistic city center under the artistic creation of human landscape. Here, we are walking on the road of time, integrating into the modern style of the new city, creating a "sense of science and technology" and a "sense of future" of life.
The demonstration area occupies the municipal planning roadway (Baixiu Road) in the north of the region, and it is expected to be demolished in 2021.
The rings of ime turn round and round, as if the perpetual motion machine will never stop. As Hemingway said, the clock is moving forward at a brisk pace, instead of the calm and lonely at the beginning. There is only a long corridor of time between the past and the future. At the other end of the corridor is the time we are looking for.
The whole design site is divided into three spaces, which also represent the three landscape areas characterized by nature, art and light and shadow in time. Each "environment" is a different description of the future life, feeling different levels of multi space.
The realm of nature
At the entrance of the natural environment, the pure white super modern landscape wall and mirror lettering are dazzling, give people a strong sense of impact. On both sides of the green landscape road, "natural green island" is growing. The combination of nature and modernity is like a pure land in modern city. At the end of the landscape road, the door of time and space is indistinctly visible. Without passing through the gate of time and space, no one knows what is hidden behind the door.
The small flower border at the entrance is well arranged, showing the beauty of group and rhythm, which is different from the pure natural plants. It is complicated but not messy, which makes people feel restless and start the journey of time.
At night, when the door of time and space lights up, standing under the door, you can see the Milky Way dotted with stars.
The realm of Art
Through the gate of time, it is another scene. Overlooking the site, the gravel and stone slabs in the valley of light are like ripples in the water, rippling in circles, which collide with the microwave of ideas and create art sparks.
The purple sculpture on the mirror is like the wheel of time, waiting for everyone's arrival at the entrance of the gate of time.
Trees from the hollowed out ring of light and shadow, growing upward, when the lights light up at night, as if walking in the star river. The round mirror spherical sculpture is like a strange planet in the galaxy, bright and lovely. The firefly lamp in the grass dances in the wind, seems to return to the memory of that summer night in the woods, the flickering fluorescence lights up the dark summer night.
The realm of light and shadow
When you come to the light and shadow, you can see the layers of water. The sound of the gurgling water leads people to dance and overlap with the art of the earth. The trees in the water are quiet and beautiful, just like the deep memory, and they will never fall down.
The starry sky wall is reflected on the water surface. When the evening wind blows, it is sparkling. Walking on the floating bridge at night, you can feel the quiet beauty different from the prosperous city. The spring of wave light jumps from the water jar, and naturally forms a series of water columns, dancing and flying, flying into the air without splashing or scattering, and hanging elegant arcs in the air.
The end is the beginning
Time reversal hourglass, starlight dots, moon shadow whirling, tree shadow mottled, under the baptism of moonlight, in the first ray of morning sun, take back all the past, to create every possible future.
Designers have been carefully studying the color, research and collocation, constantly trying to make the whole landscape space better integrated with color, texture, material and geometry, and give the people coming to this space more diversified, more level rich sensory experience.
The original triangular arrangement of the scene wall is dense, which affects the visual effect. After improvement, the arrangement of triangles is rearranged to reduce the number of triangles, which makes the visual effect more comfortable and the transition more natural.
The first draft of the light shadow ring is a round hole with a large shape. After actual proofing, it is considered that the round hole is too large and the light transmittance is too high. After deliberation, the circular hole is changed into a triangular hole, which can reduce the light transmittance and better create the effect of the starry sky.
The color of time sculpture has been deliberated by several editions of color, and finally decided to use purple magic color steel to highlight the overall tone of the future and technology in the design.
