This project seeks to develop a middle ground between excessive and conventional opera theater. One of the strategies is to create a new vertical transition part as the coherent between the Opera Theater and the Concert hall. It was designed as a solution to the substantial decrease of earth specially which site is located in a high density residential district.
This tower proposes an intensive, yet ivy romantic environment with an Opera Theater, a Concert Hall and a Panoramic Restaurant where you will be able to find little squares, picturesque sightseeing to this city, parks, hanging garden, and many cultural facility standing like an unconventional flowery tower which proposes to house an almost ethereal ambiance and the most striking views, this avant-garde piece of architecture will be the eye catcher for a very long time.
The form it tends to take is much like a lotus blooming under a mild and white winter sun. This theater seeks to rekindle the romance between Vienna and opera which first sparked in the mid-19th century with the existence of the Vienna State Opera.
Rather than the flourishing exterior, the inside of the Opera Theater reveals wood-clad cavities where every seat in the house is different.
Not only will the building have little havens of picturesque hanging gardens, but the architecture of the entire structure is organic – bringing the sensory experience of nature to the site on a grand scale.
这是我在维也纳应用艺术大学EXCESSIVE STUDIO 做的毕业设计。项目选址位于密 度拥挤的维也纳2区。平时是一个小集市。如何在有效的空间里解决大尺度的建筑体 块，并可以打破上个世纪维也纳传统歌剧院的模式，成为我整个命题围绕的重点。 所以整个设计与传统歌剧院不同，功能部分通过垂直分区很好的解决了歌剧院与音乐 厅之间的过渡与连贯性。
COMPETITION The Gate Competition of the Myrtle Flower Garden
Xiangyang city, China Collabarator: Christian PRECHT ( http://prechteck.com/ )
Our design for a gate to a flower garden in xiangyang re-desfines the concept of a gate and thereby creates a new and unmistakenable icon on the horizon of the city.
As a typology, the main function of a gate is a dividing one, separating the inside from the outside. On the other hand, a gate is a connecting element, guiding people to a certain point, where inside and outside get unified.
Our design is not just about the link of the inside with the ouside, but also about the connection of its visitors - the gate as a point of gathering, instead of a point of passing through.The structure serves as a gate to the flower park of Xiangyang, a city famous for its nature, tradition and writers. Our design shows a tribute to those.
Inspired by the shape of the garden-flower, two blossoms of the myrtle define the gate, honoring the beautiful landscape of the area.
As the structure arches over, the bundle of bamboo on the outside create a majestic volume of light in the 'in-between - space'. This space not only serves the flower garden as an entrance gate and gathering point for visitors, but also can be used as a sheltered void which serves the community for concerts or lectures. From the outside, the 'blossom-gate' is a symbol for unity and harmony and for sure a desired background for wedding pictures in the flower garden.
