Scheme 1: Pagodas in Xi’an
The Small Wild Goose Pagoda is one of the most iconic landscapes in Xi’an. For more than 1300 years, this Buddhist building has been gracefully stood in Xi’an, survived after many earthquakes and other disasters, and outlined the skyline of Xi’an. We decided to draw inspiration from the overall composition and elegant shape of the Small Wild Goose Pagoda. The unique and beautiful curve shape is interpreted as a contemporary and simpler intention, and make it the main element of the concept.
Four corners form the basic frame of the conceptual scheme. We aim to design the tower as a landmark building, and outline the unique urban skyline.We soften the corners in order to make it more slender and elegant, and create a concise and recognizable profile.
Scheme 2: Xi’an city
Tang Dynasty capital and its neighborhood: The urban structure and layout of ancient Chang’an fully embodies the magnificent spirit of the peak period of the Tang Dynasty. It has epoch-making influence in Chinese architectural history and urban history.
Based on the inspiration, this scheme aims to explore a large-scale facade order, we adopt the concept of ancient Chang’an neighborhood to the building, and separate it into different sections with the open refuge floor. The transportation core is exposed in the open space to show the structural characteristics. The refuge floor can reduce wind pressure and help high-rise buildings with a ratio of 1:6.5 obtain additional stability.
