The Cosmic Creek 隐溪川是位于成都市天府新区麓湖生态城区域内W2地块的商业街区项目。十万方的商业体量在城市系统中提供了多样化公共活动的溪岸空间以及自然绿植交叠的公园空间。
项目注重营造与自然高度互动融合的新型城市活动空间，在开放和生态的维度上对商业空间的塑造进行了新的拓展，抛弃已有范式与既定符号，从形态逻辑与空间氛围的诉求出发进行设计. The Cosmic Creek is a 100,000 sqm commercial space consisting of a nature river and forest garden within the urban fabric of Luxelakes in Tianfu New Area, south of Chengdu city.
Take advantage of the 1-floor height difference between the SW and NE corner of the site, an “L shape” river of water landscape and public activities is formed to connect the whole area. The building blocks are sculpted by the flowing of spring branches into rock pieces, like the formation of a karst landscape. The retail blocks are stepping down along the riverside, connecting by a continuous sloped circulation.
Based on the main concept of “the Creek”, which integrates deeply the activities of people and the water flows in hybrid relationships, the space presents various themes of water. “The shallow spring” where kids can play inside joyfully; “The zen lake” where people can meditate; “The central waterfall” where people can gather and experience; “The blurred area” Where people can interact with the water fog... The speed, the sound, and the volume of water will lead to different interactions with people. the river-side area provides a great asset for retail as a distinct atmosphere and for the urban people to reconnect daily life with the natural river.
The softness and transparency along the riverside provide a forest-like space. “The Ginkgo Leaf Canopy” is a module element constructed of steel, with an integrated lighting, drainage, and planter system in each. They are distributed along the river, leading people to walk into the center.
In the center plaza, a pure cosmic ring floats above, connecting the blocks separated by the river flow. From the ring, people can enjoy the 360 panoramic view of the city along the outer circle and the sweeping views of the central plaza at the inner platforms. It creates a scene as a pure cosmic ring floating above the organic forest karst landscape.
外侧水平格栅的建筑立面语言被切割打开，形成了雕塑状的种植口袋。使得单一隔绝室内外的二维立面变成了三维的、在两个界面“之间”的空间。植物占据这些透气的多孔空间，在其中随着时间生长，如同岩石上的草木与建筑体块共生。晶莹剔透的橱窗带着室内的活动镶嵌入体块中，如同硬朗石块上嵌入的发光的钻石，像是对向城市打开的窗口。活动，植物，建筑，在立面中相互关联成形。 Planters occupy the Porous façade space and grow within. The horizontal louver opens outwards and creates a series of sculpted planter pockets. Making a single skin surface into a 3-dimensional interface in between. The shopping windows are embedded into the massing as the crystal jeweler on the rock, as the eyes open to the city.
