The concept comes from diamond, which is contained in stones, so as to show that Qianhai will become the dazzling new city in Shenzhen, even the Pearl River Delta Region through decades of temper. The whole construction is the “diamond” sculpture based on the raw gemstone with manual cutting, and the exposed part of glass curtain wall is “diamonds” with different angles of cut surfaces, which show the translucent texture of construction. The “stone” part expresses the texture of stone by aluminum plates with cracked ice crackle. The lamplight of main building is combined with construction as a whole, it is a part of the architecture surface at ordinary times, and it becomes the triangular point light in the evening, thus to form science-fiction and dreamlike lighting effects.
Architectural surface uses dark grey aluminum plates to express skin which covers the diamond, outer texture seems to be irregular, and in fact it is the cracked ice crackle effect formed by combination of several standard modules. Holes and windows of the whole architectural surface are set under regulations of unit module, and unit module can be prefabrication produced largely in factories just through this kind of standard unit module design, which ensures quality of constructions, as well as promotes the project quickly under the tense time limit of construction.
Lighting design: the combination of lamplight and construction
Using one unit of aluminum plates to warp as the light box, in daytime, it is only a slightly warped aluminum plate, an element to active shapes, and in night, it changes into starlight, makes the whole construction become a dreamlike castle.
