由英国皇家建筑师协会 Stirling 奖得主 Amanda Levete 领导的 AL_A 事务所最近完成了“Central Embassy”中央使馆大楼。 这是一座引人注目的37层零售,休闲,酒店式塔楼。 坐落在曼谷市中心,业主则是泰国顶尖的零售和百货公司运营方 Central Group。Central Embassy给城市天际线添上了一条与众不同的剪影。 它同时打通了街道和天际线,犹如一个对曼谷人民和外面的世界发出的邀请一样延伸至空中。

AL_A, the architecture practice headed by RIBA Stirling Prize-winning architect Amanda Levete, has completed Central Embassy, a striking 37 floor tall retail, leisure and hotel tower in central Bangkok for Central Group, Thailand’s leading retailer and department store operator. Central Embassy brings a distinguishing new silhouette in the city, one that opens out both to the street and the skyline, and extends an invitation to the people of Bangkok and the world beyond.

坐落在当年英国大使馆的花园, 毗邻曼谷的主要商业枢纽 Ploenchit Road, 这座一百五十万平方英尺的商业综合体把一个七层楼高的奢侈品零售商场,一个 27 层楼的五星级凯悦酒店融进一个建筑整体。这也是第一座由英国建筑师在泰国完成的建筑。

Located within the former gardens of the British Embassy, along Ploenchit Road, Bangkok’s primary commercial artery, the 1.5 million sq ft mixed use project merges a seven storey luxury retail podium and a 27 storey five star Park Hyatt hotel tower into a cohesive, architectural entity. The tower is the first to be completed by a British architect in Thailand.

一系列的阳台产生了楼内和楼外的视觉上的互动,这种建筑形态的开放性以一种敞开的方式包容了整个城市,同时给人一种包容的印象。渐渐升起一般的形态由裙楼围绕着两个垂直采光井盘旋而上,为展现阶梯式的露台和分配不同酒店区域的功能打通了室内空间。 这些功能包括面向Nai Lert Park的私密的房客房间,附属酒吧, 访客会所,以及面向市中心的空中花园。

The openness of the form embraces the city and sets up reciprocal views, with a series of terraces outside and balconies within to see and be seen. The elevated form that rises from the podium wraps around two vertical light wells, opening up internal spaces to reveal stepped terraces, and dividing hotel functions: private guest-related programmes face the gardens of Nai Lert Park, while the hotel bar, reception lounge and sky terrace face the city centre.

通过用现代设计科技融合传统工艺,立面的设计依据于精巧的泰国传统图案。外立面由 300,000 块铝制模块铺满。每一块都有两个平面组成,同时反射着天空本身和地面喧闹的城市。铝制幕墙创造了一个动感的符号,反映了室外环境。而且,模块拼装起的图案根据光影的变化精心考量,产生了一个云纹绸似的效果,反映着建筑变化着的轮廓线。

Uniting traditional craftsmanship with digital design technologies, the design of the façade builds on Thailand’s tradition of intricate pattern making. The exterior is clad in 300,000 aluminium tiles, each with two surfaces to reflect both the chaos of the city and the sky itself. Creating a dynamic pattern in response to external conditions, the distribution of tiles creates a moiré-like effect, articulated by the play of light and reflection along the varying profiles.

酒店和购物中心由一条不间断的环连接,在酒店所在的塔楼和奢侈品商场所在的裙楼以及不同功能区之间形成一条更加符合人类步行直觉的流线。由塔楼延伸出的连接的连贯性似乎消解了裙楼的体量,由此便产生了一个在各个角度都不对称结构。

The hotel and shopping mall are bound together using the notion of a continual looped form to give a more intuitive merging between plinth and tower and between the programs. The continuity of the tower line appears to break down the volume of the mass of the plinth, creating a structure that is asymmetrical in all dimensions.

AL_A 的主创建筑师 Amanda Levete 说:“中央使馆直接体现了曼谷最有代表性的特质。 通过融入现代科技的同时体现本地的历史和文化,这个建筑根植于本地环境的同时又重新定义了当地环境。中央使馆是一个曼谷天际线中与众不同的新的存在,让人既感到新鲜又兴奋。但它又让人觉得这是一座一直属于当地的建筑,本身就是城市重要的一部分。

Amanda Levete, Principal of AL_A, said: “Central Embassy goes to the heart of what makes Bangkok such an extraordinary place. By embracing advanced technology as well as local heritage and culture, the building is local to its surrounding yet simultaneously redefines the location. A distinctive new presence on the skyline that is both fresh and exciting, Central Embassy nonetheless feels like it has always belonged here, already a valued part of the city.”

中央使馆的完成伴随着6月30日 AL_A 在 Victoria & Albert Museum 的展览的开幕。这个重要的国际盛会会展示这一百年来博物馆最重要的建筑演变。包括一个新的入口, 世界第一个陶制地板砖庭院,还有跨度 38 米的欧洲最大的临时展览空间之一。

The completion of Central Embassy comes in anticipation of the opening of AL_A’s Exhibition Road Quarter for the Victoria & Albert Museum on 30 June. This major international moment will reveal the Museum’s most significant architectural intervention in over 100 years, including a new entrance, the world’s first porcelain-tiled courtyard, as well as one of the largest temporary exhibition spaces in Europe, spanning 38 metres.
