投资公司Penn Capital 管理公司于近日搬入了Intrepid大街1200号，这栋由自由物业信托与Synterra Partners联合投资，BIG于费城的第一座建筑。独树一帜的双曲线立面与巨大的“潜望镜”中庭为这所来自哥本哈根和纽约事务所在美国落成的第二座建筑增添上独特的气息。而就在上个月，BIG第一座位于美国的纽约的商住建筑VIA 57 West正式开放，并一举夺得了由高层建筑与城市居住空间委员会所颁发的2016年美国最佳高层建筑大奖。
The investment management firm Penn Capital Management Company, Inc. has moved into 1200 Intrepid, BIG-Bjarke Ingels Group’s first Philadelphia building, developed by joint venture Liberty Property Trust & Synterra Partners. The dramatic building with a double-curved facade and gigantic periscope marks the second completion on American soil for the Copenhagen and New York City-based architecture firm. Last month, BIG celebrated its first finished project in the US, the mixed-use “Courtscraper” VIA 57 West, which has been named The Best Tall Building in the Americas by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) as part of its 2016 Tall Buildings Awards.

这座位于Intrepid大街1200号的建筑总面积高达92000平方英尺，是费城南部滨水企业园区Navy Yard中的新成员。建筑的一侧是Navy Yard港口水域，另一侧则眺望着由James Corner Field事务所打造的中央绿地公园。建筑师巧妙的将公园、园区的肌理以及不远处停靠着的战舰的圆滑曲线结合到设计之中。Penn Capital管理公司占据了顶层26000平方英尺的空间，而其余则归属于自由物业信托所有。
The 92,000-square-foot office building at 1200 Intrepid Avenue is located at the Navy Yard Corporate Center, a master-planned development within the Philadelphia Navy Yard. Situated between the Navy Yard’s basin and the award-winning Central Green Park designed by James Corner Field Operations, the four-story building inherits features from the circular park and Navy Yard master plan, as well as from the curved bows of the battleships docked a few blocks away. Penn Capital occupies 26,000 square-feet of the building’s top floor. The remaining space is still available for lease by Liberty Property Trust.
“尽管Navy Yard园区中有着不少精心设计的建筑，但Intrepid 1200号仍独树一帜，同时也得到了客户的赞赏。” 自由物业信托副主席Brian Cohen说到。“BIG优雅而深思熟虑的设计为其使用者创造了一个高效而前沿，坐拥无敌景观视野的工作空间，同时也兼顾了建筑与临侧公园的呼应关系。我们很高兴能为正在Navy Yard园区中寻找空间的公司们提供这样一个极具吸引力的办公场所。”
“1200 Intrepid now stands among the many uniquely designed buildings at the Navy Yard, and has been very well received by prospective customers,” said Brian Cohen, Vice President and city manager for building owner and developer, Liberty Property Trust. “BIG’s beautiful and thoughtful design provides its occupants a high performance and progressive work environment in a building which offers spectacular views and engages with Central Green Park. We are very excited to offer such an exceptional building in the marketplace for companies looking to relocate to the Navy Yard.”
▼ 建筑顺着街道划出了一条优美的曲线，the building is curved around the street on ground level
Curved around the street on ground level, 1200 Intrepid’s front façade is created by the strategic stacking of High Concrete’s precast panels of varying sizes, figured in a basket-weave pattern to realize the top of the building’s straight edge. As the panels reach upward they also tilt outward, creating an inviting, cave-like canopy over the building’s front sidewalk. Each of the building’s other three sides stand straight up, maintaining the structure’s signature paneling.

BIG的创始人Bjarke Ingel于2016年五月摘得路易斯康纪念奖桂冠，而建筑的开幕式则紧随其后。在获奖致辞中，Ingels表示Intrepid 1200号是对中央绿地中环形路径的致敬。而其“潜望镜”中庭则呼应了Navy Yard园区沉淀的海事历史，让使用者与到访者都能在建筑中一睹远处船只的风采。同时，贯穿上下的中庭也最大化了阳光的引入，让位于中部的办公室也能沐浴在自然光下，也在保持各空间独立性的同时，加强了彼此间的空间与视觉联系。
The opening comes after BIG Founder Bjarke Ingels’ reception of the Louis Kahn Memorial Award in May 2016, given yearly to an individual who has made significant contributions to the field of architecture. Speaking on 1200 Intrepid at the award’s presentation, Ingels revealed that the design was conceived as a compliment to the park’s circular running paths. In honor of the Navy Yard’s maritime history, 1200 Intrepid’s lobby features a periscope through which building tenants and visitors are offered a view of the ships docked in the water nearby. The building’s center is open all the way through to allow for maximum light exposure to each center-bordering office, and to represent an office-wide unity while maintaining each individual space’s privacy.

“公园里的圆形肌理如同水滴滴落到水中是泛起的涟漪，而建筑仿佛也受到了其影响，在园区的入口处形成了这样一个巨大的“雨棚”。双曲线的线性同时也呼应着船只经过精密计算得来的复杂线型。在建筑内部，贯穿上下的电梯中庭成为了一个大型潜望镜，顶部的镜面将远处港口中停靠退役船只的画面折射入室内。” -Bjarke Ingel
“The ‘shock wave’ of the public space spreads like rings in the water, invading the footprint of the building to create a generous urban canopy at the entrance. The resultant double-curved facade echoes the complex yet rational geometries of maritime architecture. Inside, the elevator lobby forms an actual periscope, allowing people to admire the mothballed ships at the adjacent docks.” – Bjarke Ingel

“建筑师常常会设计出与环境和场地毫无联系的巨大、方正的建筑。但Intrepid 1200号则截然不同，其与场地的紧密联系让它们成为了彼此的唯一。我们需要为一个尚未有任何租户签约的空间设计形态。因而最大的挑战是创造出一个足够吸引的空间，让企业在预算受限的情况下仍会考虑在此驻扎。” – BIG的合伙人Kai-Uwe Bergmann
“In many cases, architects design big, boxy buildings that could be placed anywhere and don’t connect directly to the site. You would really be hard-pressed to place 1200 Intrepid anywhere else, due to how it connects with its surroundings. Our commission involved creating a speculative office building, for which no tenants were committed. The key challenge here was to create a reason for tenants to be here with the constraint of a stringent budget.” – Kai-Uwe Bergmann, AIA, RIBA, Partner, BIG.
The building has received LEED® Gold certification. Its precast concrete panels helped reach this goal by enhancing energy efficiency through their dense mass. High Concrete’s panels employ a variety of manufacturing benefits, including local manufacture using locally sourced materials, the use of recycled and recyclable content, and the reduction of construction waste.
