MAD公布了正在建造中的“南京证大喜玛拉雅中心”最新照片。这个总建筑面积约56万平方米的城市综合体,比邻南京南站,由六个地块组成,包含了住宅、办公、酒店、商业等业态功能。

The “Nanjing Zendai Himalayas Center” is a city-scale urban project conceived by MAD Architects, led by Ma Yansong. The mixed-use development has an overall building area of approximately 560,000 sqm, comprised of commercial, hotel, office, and residential programs. The scheme seeks to restore the spiritual harmony between humanity and nature through the integration of contemplative spaces that, while immersing inhabitants in nature, still meets the conveniences of modern day living.

项目其中两个街区被一座立体城市广场连接。不同尺度的连廊、走道穿插在几个连绵起伏的商业综合体中,引领人们从繁忙的地面街道漫步到立体公园,游走于建筑与景观之间。

MAD’s design unfolds onto the city like a village-like community. A mix of low-rise buildings connected by footbridges are nestled into the landscape. Curving, ascending corridors and elevated pathways weave through the commercial buildings. Activated by public gardens and social spaces, they create a spiritual and poetic retreat in the middle of the city.

基地的中心区域由一些散落在绿毯上的坡顶小屋构成,呈现出小村落式的环境,为大尺度的城市项目提供了宜人的城市空间。小桥连接着村落,从一个街区到另一个街区,串联了假山、流水,构成了一幅充满诗意的画作。位于基地外侧的塔楼宛如高山,竖条的遮阳玻璃百叶,遮阳又透光,为室内空间提供了怡人的光线和风,如瀑布般流动于山体上,让整座建筑充满意境。塔楼扮演了高山流水的远景,而基地内水池、瀑布、溪流、水潭等的水景承接了意象并把隐喻具现化,模糊了远景与近景的边缘。

Along the edge of the site, surrounding the village, are mountain-like towers that appear to have been carved out by wind and water. Defined by white, curved glass louvres that ‘flow’ like waterfalls, they reflect Nanjing’s surrounding mountain ranges and meandering rivers. Water features, such as ponds, waterfalls, brooks, and pools connect the buildings, while trees and rich plantings see the artificial and manmade coalesce with one another – forming a rich, architectural landscape.
