本项目为华南理工大学建筑学院风景园林系学生团队在2021年广州园林博览会的参展作品,园博会位于海心沙亚运,汇聚了众多优秀的景观作品,其中包括四组大学生竞赛获奖作品。消失的花园在第27届广州园林博览会学生设计竞赛中脱颖而出,荣获金奖,成为最终在博览会中展出的四个大学生作品之一。

This project is the exhibited work of a team of students from the Department of Landscape Architecture of the School of Architecture of South China University of Technology at the 2021 Guangzhou Garden Expo. The Expo is located in the Haixinsha Asian Games Park. It gathers many outstanding landscape works, including four groups of winning works for college students. The Disappearing Garden stood out in the student design competition of the 27th Guangzhou Garden Expo, won the gold medal, and became one of the four college students’ works finally exhibited in the Expo.

花园缘起:消失之美
The origin of the garden: the beauty of disappearance

古往今来多数人认为建筑和园林应更久的存在,甚至永恒存在,但是这与万物终会消逝的自然过程是相违背的。我们认为顺应自然之道而最终消失的花园也是美好的存在,它可向世人展示消失之美,故本方案以“消失的花园”作为设计概念。

Most people think that buildings and gardens should last longer, even eternal, but this is contrary to the natural process that all things will eventually disappear. We believe that a garden which finally disappear in accordance with the laws of nature is also a beautiful existence, showing the beauty of disappearance to the world. Thus, the concept of “disappearing garden” is used in this design.

▼设计策略,Design Strategies ©消失的花园设计团队

地面种植花卉创造花境景观,花园上空漂浮装有切花的气球。随着展览结束,市民一同参与放飞气球,气球中的花卉在气球上升爆炸后落回自然,化作肥料,养育生命,重启新的历程。整个展览过程体现消失的花园这一概念,并展示消失的花园的意义。所以这一设计将气球视为象征性的装置景观,用装有植物的气球隐喻人与自然密切而又脆弱的联系,象征自然与生命的时间性质。设计将想象性的故事融入于花园中,兼具童话与科幻的色彩的同时,也营造富有意境、哲学思考及体验氛围的园境效果。

Flowers are planted on the ground to create a flower landscape, and balloons with cut flowers float above the garden. As the exhibition end, citizens participate in the release of balloons. The flowers in the balloons rise, explode and fall back to nature, turning them into fertilizers, nurturing lives, and restarting a new journey. The entire exhibition process embodies the concept of the disappeared garden and demonstrates the meaning of the disappearing garden. Therefore, this design regards balloons as symbolic device, using balloons with plants to metaphorize the close yet fragile relationship between human and nature, and symbolize the process of nature and life. The design incorporates imaginative stories into the garden, combine features of fairy tales and science fiction, and creates a garden full of artistic atmosphere, philosophical reflection and interactive experience.

花园营造
Garden construction

为测试气球漂浮效果,设计团队在营造之初进行浮力测试和效果实验。带有花卉的气球可在氦气浮力支持下升上天空,但受到材料规格影响,部分花卉试验效果不佳。设计团队根据研究,绘制气球半径与浮力关系函数图,确定半径300-400mm的气球足以支持带有花卉的气球漂浮。

In order to test the floating effect of the balloon, the design team conducted a buoyancy test and effect experiment at the beginning of the construction. Balloons with flowers can rise to the sky under the support of helium buoyancy, but due to material specifications, the effect of some flower experiments is not good. Based on the research, the design team drew a diagram of the relationship between balloon radius and buoyancy, and determined that a balloon with a radius of 300-400mm was sufficient to support a balloon with flowers floating.

然而,气球漏气问题难以避免,漂浮的气球往往1-2天内便逐渐下沉,远不及园博会20天的展期要求。通过与施工单位以及各合作方的协商沟通,我们决定采取一种折中的办法,用亚克力材质的“气球”代替真实气球,表达团队设计初衷的同时,保证花园整体效果。

However, the problem of balloon air leakage is unavoidable. Floating balloons gradually sink within 1-2 days, which is far less than the 20-day extension requirement of the Garden Expo. Through negotiation and communication with various partners, we decided to adopt a compromise approach, replacing real balloons with acrylic “balloons” to express the original intention of the team while ensuring the overall effect of the garden.

 

象征:消失的媒介
Symbol: the disappearing medium

亚克力“气球”是花园核心要素,是表达设计初衷的象征媒介,用“气球”讲述故事。亚克力“气球”比拟漂浮于花园上空的气球,花园中、树丛下的透明“气球”挺立但又脆弱,隐喻着人与自然之间密切而又脆弱的关系。顺应自然之道的存在,无论是花开花落,微风抚下的落叶,亦或是从孩童手中飞走的气球,都是一道道风景,在消逝的事物面前怀有一颗赞美与热爱之心,我们就会发现永恒事物之外更美的风景。直径为400mm的“气球”分布在600×600mm的网格点位上,两个半圆球体放入干花花束后拼合成“气球”球体,与亚克力管连接构成完整的“气球”装置。规则分布的气球随微风摇动,为花园更添一分未知的乐趣。

Acrylic “balloon” is the core element of the garden and a symbolic medium to express the original intention of the design, used to tell stories. Acrylic “balloons” are like balloons floating above the garden, the transparent “balloons” in the garden stand upright but are fragile, metaphorize the close and fragile relationship between man and nature. The existence of the way to conform to nature, whether it is the flowers blooming or falling, the fallen leaves caressed by the breeze, or the balloons flying away from the hands of children, are all scenery, with a heart of praise and love in front of the passing things, we will find more beautiful scenery beyond the eternal. “Balloons” with a diameter of 400mm are distributed on a grid of 600×600mm. A bouquet of dried flowers, two semi-circular spheres, connect with an acrylic tube to form a complete “balloon” device. The regularly distributed balloons sway with the breeze, adding a bit of unknown fun to the garden.

时间:生命的对比
Time: the contrast of life stage

“气球”里的花卉为干花花束,生命力不再但仍保持色彩,展示一段不被熟知的历程;地面的花卉生机盎然,是人们最熟悉的美好模样,两段不同的生命历程,干花和鲜花两相呼应,呈现出别样的和谐美感。伫立花园前,人们会思考关于干花的问题,并寻求答案。一束束干花象征着时间的流逝,蕴含着时间流逝所带来的美好。当人们迈入花园,仿佛置身于时间之河,提醒着观赏者生命的每个阶段都有其独特之处,要感受生命的每个历程。生命的开始与生命的尾声并不是两个对立面,而是生命中两个同样美好的人生阶段,需包容,需赞美。

The flowers in the “balloon” are bouquets of dried flowers. The vitality is no longer but the colors remain, showing an unfamiliar journey; the flowers on the ground are full of vitality and are the most familiar and beautiful appearance, two different life journeys, dried flowers echoes fresh flowers, showing a different harmony. Standing in front of the garden, people may think about dried flowers and seek answers. Bunches of dried flowers symbolize the passage of time and contain the beauty brought about by the passage of time. When people step into the garden, it is as if they are in the river of time, reminding the viewer that each stage of life is unique and try to feel each life course. The beginning of life and the end of life are not opposite, but two equally beautiful life stages in life, which require understanding and praise.

“气球”里的干花以白、粉、紫的月季、满天星、勿忘我以及蓝色蓝刺头为主,并以黄色月季作为点缀,漂浮的干花整体与花园地面花卉颜色相呼应,共同营造花园清新脱俗、素雅飘逸的景观氛围。

The dried flowers in the “balloon” are mainly white, pink, and purple roses, gypsophila, forget-me-not, and blue thorns, and are decorated with yellow roses. The color of dried flowers echo with the color of the ground flowers in the garden, creating a fresh, refined and elegant atmosphere.

起伏:自然的律动
Ups and downs: natural rhythm

“气球”整体形态宛如连绵的山峦,又似灵动的流水,与背景的树林以及珠江的水波相呼应,轻快律动的起伏造型打破原有地形平整无趣的缺点同时,增加了花园空间感,步移景异,发现花园多样的美。

The overall shape of the “balloon” is like a continuous mountain, but also like a smart flowing water, which echoes the background trees and the water waves of the Pearl River. The brisk and rhythmic undulating shape breaks the original shortcomings of flat and uninteresting terrain, it also increases the sense of space of the garden. While walking on the path, visitors discover the changing beauty of the garden.

互动:高度的碰撞
Interaction: a variety of height

“气球”的高度1000-2600mm不等,高度不一的“气球”为人们创造丰富的游赏体验,“气球”矮可触摸,孩童们也能够近距离观赏球中的干花形态;“气球”高则仰望,游客们抬头欣赏,阳光透过树荫照射在“气球”上,斑驳的光影为高不可及的“气球”更增添了几分神秘。仰视、平视、俯视,不同的观赏角度带来多样的观赏体验。

The height of the “balloons” vary from 1000-2600mm. The height of the “balloons” create a rich experience for people. Some “balloons” are short and touchable, even children can have a close look at the dried flowers in the balloons; those high ones, visitors look up and appreciate the sunlight shining on the “balloons” through the shade of the trees, and the mottled light and shadow add a bit of mystery to the unattainable “balloons”. Looking up or looking down, various perspective bring a variety of experiences.

我们为游客打造在花园中的最佳拍照点,四周高低起伏的“气球”呈现环抱效果,游客们置身其中与“气球”的关系更加亲密。

We have set up a best shooting spot for tourists in the garden. The undulating “balloons” all around present an embracing effect, and the tourists are more intimate with the “balloons”.
