We mostly post here any non supertall project located in a city that hasn't its own thread. We used to have threads for Nanjing and Chengdu, but they were deleted because they didn't get new posts for too long.

Xiamen To Build Seven-Star Standard Hotel

June 24, 2009 | Print | Email Email | Category: Industry News

City of Dreams, a lush seven-star standard hotel consisted of three buildings, will be built on floating islands near Crocodile Island, Xiamen.

Construction of the hotel by the end of 2009, and is expected to be finished before the National Day holiday in 2012.

According to Xu Shiyong, the founder of the project, the hotel will have a total area of over 100,000 square meters with more than 800 rooms of different styles, a grand ballroom accommodating 1,000 people, an international conference hall, a press center, tennis court, outdoor swimming pool, and other amenities.

Apart from the City of Dreams, Anxi in Fujian province and Tianjin are also planning to build seven-star standard hotels. Currently the Burj Al Arab in Dubai is the world's only "seven-star" hotel.

Foshan Pearl Gymnasium, Foshan, China

Thursday 02 Jul 2009

Pearl of the orient

Mitsuru Senda's gymnasium complets in Foshan

Foshan Pearl Gymnasium is a multi-functional sport facility that accommodates various activities such as official sport games, training, assembly and events as well as citizens’ leisure and exercise.



The climate of Foshan is sub-tropical climate with heavy rain, severe heat and humidity particularly between July and September. EDI considered all the facilities should be protected from such severe climate by shelter and determined to employ multistage overhanging ring truss system. This structural system is characterized by the main frame of horizontal rings. Vertical members to support rings are arranged alternately. For additional reinforcement, diagonal bracing are arranged on the surface of the domes. The slits between horizontal rings ensure light and outside air coming through. Because horizontal rings acts as eaves, this creates dynamic architectural impression with strong contrast of light and shade. This gymnasium is consisted of Main Arena, Sub-Arena and Citizens’ Arena. At the lower level, 3 ring domes are combined by contour shaped rings. Therefore, 3 arenas are organically and functionally linked together.

By providing water spaces surrounding the gymnasium, cool air is introduced inside the domes. EDI attempts the entire reliance on natural ventilation using multiple windows fit between the rings, except for the minimum use of mechanical cooling during hot and humid July to September. Natural lighting is controlled by automatic blind installed between rings.

With silver aluminum dome roofs like pearls, which also act as heat reflection, this sports dome stands as a symbol of the city and as an environmental architecture that put stress on light, ventilation and temperature in response to local climate.
