Project Location Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province
Entry DescriptionThe project is one of the 12 newly built venues for the Asian Games Hangzhou 2022. Fuyang District is famous for Dwelling in the Fuchun Mountains, a legendary Chinese landscape painting. The curtain wall system of the venue is made of 34,000 rotating louvers, and 11,560 of which outline a “mountain” pattern. In shifting light and shadows, the landscape of the famous painting is vividly displayed on the facade.
The mountain-shaped facade is installed with 11,560 sets of wall washed light fixtures and louvers with 15 distinct rotating angles. With customized lens and shells, the design ensures that each lamp fits louvers with different angles, to show dynamic or static “mountain” images. To avoid dazzling lighting, the shells of lamps in the 330mm-wide gap between the louver curtain wall and the glass curtain wall are optimized, by putting wall washed lamps, pipes and lines inside the shells (70mm*55mm), which prevents light from spilling out, creates a rhythmic light environment with proper brightness, and highlights the architecture in a natural, modest manner. Various lighting modes are realized through hierarchical control. Lights are on as required, which helps saves energy.
