Entry Description
Vanke Future City project is located in the northern city of Shenyang. The project is a sales centre for a mixed use development with a modern futuristic appeal.
The architectural design of the main building is a series of layered fins wrapping around the oval shaped sales centre. The landscape included interactive lighting art installations and a large open plaza with in ground linear light fixtures. Trees were uplit and the organic shaped planters were highlighted with concealed cove lighting. The façade concept was based on ideas of waves travelling around the building layering on top of each other. The lighting for the smaller show flat sales building was also
To achieve the wave effect a series of recessed spotlights were mounted in the top and bottom of a small extrusion which was recessed into the front of the main fin, so that the spotlights would was up and down the main fin. 3 layers of lights were used in the main body of the façade following a gentle wave form all slightly different to each other to give a dynamic feel to the façade. The biggest challenge was the project schedule. Eventually the project was complete on time, amazingly!
