Atlantis Sanya is an ocean-themed resort. Designers met the following major difficulties for the construction: 1.High and strict requirements for product positioning, construction quality& safety and fire management; 2.Large scale of the project, which boasts a total construction area of 500, 000 sqm(the hotel of 250, 000 sqm and water park of 90, 000 sqm were constructed simultaneously). 3.Challenges for constructing the irregular-shaped building facade, the aquarium and delivering of water, etc.
The pebble garden machine is an additive manufacturing process developed for dry landscape design. It deploys coarse randomized aggregates, using epoxy resin as a binder and is assembled by an industrial robot into three-dimensional structures. It is perhaps the first application of 3D printing for dry landscape design and fabrication, creating counterintuitive geometric features such as tapering walls, cantilevering edges and low spanning arches. Overall artefacts have natural, man-made and machine aspects that are beautiful and breathtaking, capable to be produced at a fast rate.
Facets is an ongoing series of digital and physical sculptures, a contemporary interpretation of memorial sculptures of the Monumental Cemetery in Genova, Italy. The work explores the tension and equilibrium between form and matter. Using figurative representation and geometric abstraction, Facets is based on previous Topology studies of the sculptures. While referencing emotionally evocative memorial sculpture, the focus of this series shifts from pure figurative representation to the articulation of matter itself.
The designer sought inspiration from the simple elements and the purest form of design. His main concern was always the quick and objective reading of the information and always focused on the sensory. The elements he have chosen always work according to purpose, without being banal. The choice of colors and shapes strengthens the sense of concept, bringing the air of lightness and softness needed.
Mr. Andou Tadao once said, “Concrete is a structural concept and a concept without additional disguise.” The buildings of this association building and public facility designing project take a low profile posture that “grow” within the environment. The main buildings take up 3 sides in fluid curves that naturally blend within the “group”. Many large trees were planted in the external spaces, making it a highly greened outdoor space. This enables the main body of the building to jump off materials used for conventional building surfaces.
The concept represents the state of a person who is filled with vitality, innovation, joy, freshness, boldness and positivism. This atmosphere inspires for action, mind process "out of box", search for new ideas and solutions meanwhile giving confidence to the individual and its abilities. Just open the door and embrace the flowing avalanche of orange fruits that symbolize the ideas and most positive events in life and continue going to the next room which is filled with soft pleasant luminosity. Allow to fulfill yourself with energy of "Orange Mood".
