Shengdetang Ruins Gallery in Sanya / 三亚, Hainan Province, Southern China










from archdaily.com


Quote:
Architects: CHCC of Tsinghua University (Beijing)
Location: Sanya, Hainan, China
Architects In Charge: Culture Heritage Conservation Center of Tsinghua University
Design Team: Cui Guanghai, Li Jing
Collaborators: Jie Xiaofeng, Guo Hongyan, Bi Quanyao
Structural Engineering: Liu xiang, Yu Guang
Area: 498 sqm
Year: 2012
Photographs: Jin Dongjun




Shengdetang (Hall of Grand Virtue), located in Sanya City, Hainan Province, was a private mansion built by the descendants of a famous Prime Minister named Peidu in Tang Dynasty after their family was outlawed and settled down in the village. Dating back to year 20, during the reign of Shaoxing in the Song Dynasty, when the famous patriotic Prime Minister Huquan inscribed for the mansion, Shengdetang has a history of nearly 850 years. After repeated destruction and reconstruction, only the north part of the main hall and the newly renovated north penthouse still remain. Based on archaeological excavations and status quo survey, a protection and display plan was proposed.

Due to the small area and volume of the remains and the difficulties in extrapolating the original layout, the concept of rebuilding the mansion was avoided to prevent misleading information. A protective display plan was proposed instead: the new shelter would be built as the background to sustain a full demonstration of the heritage information without interference. The design inherits the original courtyard layout while preserving the original state of the physical environment of the wood structures, thereby presenting the best method in protecting this type of ruins. Hence, apart from necessary space separation and rain sheltering, the new building would open up to its greatest extent and the concept of the ruins gallery, “courtyard display”, was put forward.

The architectural remains would be restored to its historic states after prudently distinguishing, sorting and demolishing the new additions based on the existing building conditions and remaining clues, thereby fully reflecting the remains’ authenticity and integrity; the severely damaged artistic components would be repaired and restored to their original position and state of use before the totally disappearance of its framework and appearance.

In order to shelter the rain, a semi-closed pitched glass roof with the same slope as the remaining roof would be constructed above the main hall. The structure of the roof would be as concise as possible to minimize its volume thereby highlighting the remaining gable and the refurbished beams and displaying their delicate wood carvings and calligraphy inscriptions.

A multimedia exhibition hall, which could hold up to 30 people, would be set in the front of the architectural remains while part of the ruins of the wall bases would be covered by wooden plank walkways .This part would be closely connected to the main hall and could be entered directly under the pitched glass roof, all of which would constitute a small exhibition system combining virtual and physical spaces.

On the left side of the architectural remains, a corridor would be built to create a gallery both for people to fully appreciate the gable and for laying out simple displays. The void between the above two structures was designed as an outdoor exhibition place.

The two open architecture and the ancient ruins together create a square courtyard. Through the combination of walls and the holes on the walls, a series of magnificent spatial effects in Chinese classical gardening, such as framed scenery, borrowing scenery, symmetrical scenery, dipped scenery and added scenery, would be achieved. This would create a harmonious relationship between the architecture and its natural environment.

The open architectural form and the holes on the walls are in line with the prevailing winds of Sanya City in the summer seasons, which is good not only for ventilation of the architectural remains, but also for the relief of the hot climate.

The courtyard style architecture is enclosed by simple cubic architecture volumes. The forms are humble, yet they highlight the remains of Shengdetang. The main materials of the shelter-grey bricks and wood-are similar to the traditional materials used in the surrounding residential houses and the ancestral hall, which shows respect for the heritage remains and its surrounding environment.

Atkins' 11 sq km masterplan for Nanjing Waterfront designed for 'a lasting legacy'

Atkins has produced a landscape masterplan for the development of 30km of prime waterfront in Nanjing, one of China’s four great ancient capitals and the second largest commercial centre in the East China region, in preparation for the Nanjing 2014 Youth Olympic Games.

The masterplan will provide connectivity and access along its length addressing industrial sites and urban dereliction as well as linking with recent new developments and existing open space. Atkins has also been chosen to oversee the detailed landscape design and construction over the next two years.

Mark Kang, Atkins’ project director, said: “A successful landscape must work for all elements; the local culture, the ecology, the people and the businesses that will become part of its fabric. For this project, this was particularly relevant. Due to the layering of the different development phases in Nanjing’s history, the waterfront appears non-homogeneous and fragmented.

"We drew our inspiration from the local silk industry which produces brocade known as Nanjing Yunjin, a series of weaving patterns using a consistent palette of colour threads. The masterplan calls for a coherent design language while highlighting city heritage and fulfilling the needs of contemporary urban living and recreational activities."

The city of Nanjing, on the banks of the River Yangtze, incorporates some of China’s most important historical, ecological and social landmarks and this project is part of a major masterplan to both consolidate and celebrate these aspects within the overall riverside corridor. To undertake this, Atkins' scope of work includes landscape design, urban planning and tourism consultancy.

Covering an area of 11 sq km, Atkins’ design incorporates seven landscape and activity zones which interconnect yet remain distinctive. The zones feature tourism, leisure, commercial facilities and incorporate natural landscape highlights. Not only will the improvements provide better access to these key features, especially for the visitors to the Games, but will provide a lasting legacy celebrating the heritage of Nanjing along its waterfront.

Atkins was the official engineering design services provider for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games and is currently overseeing the transformation of the Olympic Park into an exciting new visitor destination and community park.

Greenery is good, but it should be planned for shade and with protection against the environment (wind, rain, snow, sun...). And where are the vendors supposed to be? Hopefully that motorway will have sound walls as well.
