That Jean Nouvel art museum is a disappointment. I don't believe I like anything that weird man has designed. I don't understand how that man managed to gain a reputation.

The Lushi Hill Club / 庐师山庄会所

By Local Architects Atelier Fronti / 方体空间

from archdaily.com


Quote:
Architects: Atelier Fronti
Location: Beijing, China
Area: 1600.0 sqm
Photographs: Courtesy of Atelier Fronti


This club is located in a residential area in the west outskirts of Beijing and is a activity site for 52 villas there. The building area is 1600m2. This building includes three floors and consists of coffee halls, meeting rooms and four guest rooms. A three-floor hall at the entrance of the club is separated from the out by a whole glass curtain wall. The main point of this building is the vesion relations between the outdoor and indoor objects .

The club faces to the center green land of the whole area which reserves old trees with nice sceneries. Thus a slope connected to F2 in the hall is designed to enable people to experience the sceneries outside the glass wall. There are many construction difficulties of this club. The 3.6m-wide and 3.6m-high door at the entrance experienced difficulty in designing and making phase. The 11m-high. glass wall is suspended in the west. The upper glass wall is 7m high and need to be tempered according to the standard, but only 6.8m tempered glass can be produced by the tempering furnace, thus the curtain wall challenges the limit of this era unintenionally.

Thanks for your french sources about the project...it seems they changed the cladding from black metal alloy to translucent/perforated whatever.

Project may be redesigned around tomb
Updated: 2013-06-24 07:13
China Daily



Archaeologists study the cover and base of the inscription stone for the wife of Liu Ji, a major military governor during the Tang Dynasty (AD 618-907). The base has peony patterns. Cheng Gong / for China Daily

Well-preserved site was resting place of Tang Dynasty military governor, wife

A multibillion yuan construction project in Beijing is likely to be redesigned to protect an important ancient tomb site, which was discovered during a preliminary investigation for the project.

"We'll soon coordinate with the relevant sectors to adjust the original construction plan to protect the tomb on its original site," said Yu Ping, a spokeswoman for the Beijing Cultural Heritage Department.

Yu said she hoped a museum for the tomb would be built and opened to the public in the future.

Because of its large scale and the diverse relics excavated, the tomb is very rare and has high heritage and historical value, said Song Dachuan, director of the Cultural Heritage Research Institute of Beijing. The tomb's main structure has remained basically intact, which is rare among similar archaeological sites, Song added.

The tomb was discovered in 2012 by the local cultural heritage department while they were helping the project planners undertake a preliminary investigation for the "The Cultural Silicon Valley", a large integrated cluster for cultural and creative industries in Changgou town, Fangshan district.

The planned industrial cluster, designed to cover an area of 160 hectares and consisting of 12 smaller projects, had an investment of 13.7 billion yuan ($2.23 billion).

After nearly a year of excavation, relics including delicate frescos, rare inscription stones, pottery, porcelains, bronze, jade and iron pieces have been excavated from the tomb even though it had been raided several times.

The entire structure consists of tomb paths, a tomb gate, a niche, main room, back room and side rooms. The tomb's top was destroyed.

Stone inscriptions confirm the tomb to belong to Liu Ji, a major military governor during the Tang Dynasty (AD 618-907), and his wife.

The inscription stones in the tomb have two layers. The cover on top is inscribed with the tomb owner's name and status, while the lower part records the life and achievements of those interred.

The cover stone for Liu's wife is vividly carved, colorfully depicting people and patterns around the face, with sunken characters decorated with gold in the center. Weighing more than two tons, it is 1.62 meters wide and 0.225 meters high. It is unparalleled by tomb stone inscriptions of the same period ever found in China, Yu said.

"Tang Dynasty tomb inscriptions of such scale are very rare in Beijing."

Through further study of the stone inscriptions, it is possible to learn more about the history of Liu's time, especially the history of Beijing, Yu said.

The base for the coffin is also unusual. It has six layers, which was rare even for emperors. Every layer is carved with patterns such as Buddhist images and lotus flowers.

The excavated pieces will be protected after scientific testing and identification. Among them, the protection of the delicate frescos has posed challenges for archaeologists.

The frescos depict musical performances, daily life, buildings, animals and plants. They provide important material for the study of noble people's lives at that time and in that region, Song said.

Unlike those uncovered in other regions, the frescos are painted on the walls without any underlayer, Song said.

Archaeologists said they would not rule out the possibility of stopping the excavation temporarily until they find an ideal way to prevent the pictures from oxidation.

Experts also need more clues to explain strange things found during the excavation, such as why the bones of Liu's wife are missing and why the tomb inscription for her is more extravagant than for her husband, which was rare according to the feudal customs of the time.

Only a male skull was found in the joint burial tomb. Song said it will take further tests to confirm whether the skull belonged to Liu.

"The questions remain to be answered with later research. The results will be released to the public as soon as possible," Yu said.

The most impressive free glass construction that I have ever seen is that of the beautiful and fantastic New Poly Plaza building in Beijing, the freely self-supporting glass frame construction is about 15 stories high. It is a plane, two dimensional glass frame, still the construction was utmost difficult and expensive to calculate and to build. Here are two photos I took:







With ST we will have several sections of – what? – 14 – floors, and the skin will wrap around the whole building. To design, build, and fix a support frame that is flexible but also sturdy enough and yet strong enough to carry huge masses of glass but also to withstand temperature differences and hugh weather forces without pressurizing the glass itself is a thing that I cannot yet imagine to work as the renders suggest. This is something that I am very much looking forward to seeing during the build process.
