In October 2020, in the “Heaven and Earth” lawn of Shenzhen Xianhu Botanical Garden, a shape that resembles a seed germination stands in the meantime. Large tracts of flowers are planted on both sides of the lawn. The vibrant “seeds” attracted tourists to stop. Going forward and taking a closer look, I realized that the shape of this group of “seeds” was actually made of bamboo! This is the “seed” of modern bamboo weaving floral art public art created by Mr. Xie Jun, a joint architect of Shenzhen Fairy Lake Botanical Garden, for the 71st National Day and the 40th anniversary of the establishment of Shenzhen Special Economic Zone. The arched shape is like a pulsating heart, and the hollow is like a “seed” hidden deep. The original intention gave birth to the “seeds” of reform and opening up, and now it has been sown in the world, witnessing great changes. Seeds, with dreams, spread all over China.

The public “seed” discards the commonly used green carved steel frame, and takes the bamboo woven art frame as the main body. Bamboo is a natural material and has a high degree of integration with the natural environment of the botanical garden. Bamboo weaving is also a traditional craft in my country. Using it in modern garden landscapes is a collision between tradition and modernity. Bamboo symbolizes tenacity, selflessness, perseverance, unity and nobility. Its spirit of self-improvement and standing upright is exactly the same as the spirit of Shenzhen Special Economic Zone.

In terms of styling, a large number of modern curves and arcs are used. In terms of materials and craftsmanship, we have adopted traditional methods such as hand-knitting, hemp rope binding, bamboo nail fixing, and lofting models. At the same time, we have also incorporated new technologies and new materials such as 3D printing, metal components, and numerical control modeling to make bamboo products and modern Technology integration.

Bamboo is essentially a highly efficient structural material: high strength, high toughness, and tensile strength like steel. The segmented fasting structure gives it an elastic property that is extremely lightweight and easily bends into a curved profile. These structural properties contribute to the material properties of the bamboo. Compared with wood, it has stronger elastic and flexibility advantages, and the water swelling rate and heat drying shrinkage rate are small.

For a long time, the pursuit of the three principles of aesthetics, practicality and solidarity has never stopped, but the systematic transformation of structural forms is still in its infancy. The problems caused by uncontrolled mining and misuse of building materials, people are eating their own fruits, and the ecological and environmentally-friendly local natural building materials such as bamboo have become more and more prominent: it is enough to build a new type of holistic and sustainable building structure. At the same time, the regional culture, modern technology and practicality are perfectly integrated.

Public art emphasizes ‘sociality’ and ‘openness’. It is an artistic landscape composed of diverse media. While enjoying the beautiful scenery, people also associate its profound meaning. How to use modern design concepts to perfectly combine ‘bamboo’, an environmentally friendly and ecological original material with modern technology, to create more contemporary artworks that are in line with the aesthetics of the times and are economically applicable.

October, with autumn introverted, with autumn dignity,
Carrying autumn’s maturity, with autumn yearning.
Over the years, we will never forget our original intention, ride the wind and waves, and move forward.
