Appreciation towards MARC FORNES/THEVERYMANY for providing the following description:

本项目位于美国北卡罗来纳州的夏洛特市,Wanderwall的动态脉冲重新构筑了Uptown住宅区中心位置的停车楼的外墙。这种漩涡般的图案具有生态、社会和经济效益,折叠的金属板表现出一种流动和网络的元素,同时金属板上的迷宫般的孔洞也使得自然光线能够照进停车场的内部空间。

The dynamic pulse of Wanderwall re-imagines an exterior parkade wall in the uptown core of Charlotte. Evocative of swirling activity—ecological, social, and economic—the folded metal facade describes elements of flows and networks, with a labyrinthine porosity that allows light through to the garage interior.

这个立体的建筑外表皮由5,768个独立单元组成,环绕在Stonewall Station车站的停车楼的南立面和东立面的外侧。停车楼共八层,环绕其上的充满活力的铝制外表皮使得该停车楼成为了住宅区天际线中灯塔一般的存在,并创造出一系列远远超出建筑本身的多种尺度上的空间和视觉体验。

This dimensional architectural skin is composed of 5,768 individual parts that wrap the South and East elevations of the Stonewall Station parking garage. Eight stories of vibrant aluminum cladding announce the building as a beacon on the Uptown skyline and produce several scales of experience that extend far beyond the building itself.

体验的尺度 | SCALES OF EXPERIENCE

受到在美国I-227号公路上的汽车公路旅行的启发,建筑师将外表皮打造成了一个蓝绿色交织的形态,作为一种色彩斑斓的信号,希望能够让经历着繁忙的城市生活的人们稍稍放慢脚步。外表皮十分显眼,不仅是在通往停车楼的必经之路上,即使是在几个街区之外也可以瞥见。走近建筑,沿着通往停车楼的道路,人们会发现,表皮上的图案纹理逐渐取代了颜色,占据着主导地位。这个外表皮的设计利用一种令人惊喜的非线性设计,持续激发着人们探索下去的好奇心。

In a flash of blue-green caught from a car traveling on I-277, the piece acts as colorful signal, inspiring a moment to slow down in the city. The Sunday stroller may catch a glimpse from several blocks away, tempting a diversion from the usual path. Along the approach, color gives way to pattern. The surprising non-linearity of the piece rewards curiosity with ongoing discovery.

外表皮的中景则激发了人们对立面主题的视觉探索。在颜色上,铝板色调十分饱和,从皇家蓝开始,通过一系列深浅不一的绿色,最终过渡到浅绿色;同时,色彩丰富的铝板折叠成迷宫般的图案,最终展现出一种螺旋的、漩涡般的动态效果。这种设计的目的在于吸引广大市民的注意力,同时触发出一系列不同的想象和对现实世界的借鉴。从这个角度来看,本外表皮项目向人们表现且传达了一种“视觉漫游”的现象和概念。当你的目光随着这个外表皮不断移动的时候,你会发现自己已经在不知不觉中迷失其中,仿佛置身于其凹凸的图案、颜色、孔洞和深度之间。

The mid-range view provokes a visual exploration of the facade’s motif. Aluminum parts in saturated hues from royal blue to springy green fold into a maze-like pattern, revealing an image of swirling activity. The composition is meant to appeal to a wide range of demographics, triggering different associations and real-world references. From this vantage, a phenomenon of “visual wandering” transports the viewer. As the eye travels across the piece, you find yourself lost in the design, the push and pull of the pattern, its color, porosity, and depth.

这个色彩丰富、渐变丰富的外表皮具有迷宫般的图案纹理,弱化了其周边环境中玻璃幕墙的主导地位,为夏洛特市的Uptown住宅区带去了一个引以为傲、与众不同的地标性建筑元素。对于在那里居住的所有住户来说,Wanderwall外表皮是当地的一个全新的地标,预示着这个城市的美好未来。它不是城市中的静态装置,而是一种动态元素,每次观看都会有一种新的体验,从而吸引着不同的人无数次前往。

A maze of rich gradients of several colors offset the dominance of surrounding glass facades, bringing a proud, unique emblem to Uptown Charlotte. For residents of all kinds, Wanderwall is a new landmark that anticipates the city’s bright future. Rather than a static fixture in the city, it produces new moments of discovery with each visit, prompting you to return again and again.

近距离观看时,Wanderwall则是一种构造上的体验。从街道平面向上看,细节便成为了视线的焦点。在这里,人们不仅可以感知到外表皮在某些部位高达16英寸的深度,更可以观察到其复杂的连接结构。当人们置身于停车楼内部的时候,这种尺度的图案视觉效果会更加强烈。外表皮上的孔洞使得空间内部具有一种流动的光影效果。

Up close, Wanderwall is a tectonic experience. Looking up from the street below, details come into focus. Here, you can perceive the depth of the surface—up to 16 inches in places—and its intricate connections. The effects of the pattern at this scale intensify on the interior of the garage. The porosity that patterns the exterior produces a tracery of dynamic light inside.

图案主题 | THE MOTIF

鉴于城市中集中的金融机构,夏洛特市被认为是全美的第二大金融中心。每天都有密集的资金在这座城市中、以及这座城市和其他城市之间流转着。因此,外表皮的整体主题不仅将这种金融活动视觉化,更将金融活动为这座城市带来的发展通过建筑的方式表达了出来。在富有表现力的金属构件中,这些流动性元素的颜色呈现出一种梯度化,从而强调了金融系统的循环动力美学。

Charlotte is recognized as the second largest financial center in the nation, given its concentration of financial institutions. The overall motif of the facade visualizes that activity and the growth it has produced in the city as a density of nodes with fluid exchanges circulating between and beyond them. In expressive metal parts, these flows take on a gradient coloration that accentuates the circulatory dynamics of the system.

通过由绿色渐变为蓝色的过程,外表皮的图案纹理还表现出一种自然的意味。迷宫般的外表皮在竖直方向上表现出地层的特性——以夏洛特城市为中心,图案描绘出城市界面之下和之上的景观图景。空隙的密度则进一步来自于条纹图案的构建和它们之间的组合方式,从而为停车楼的室内空间提供了自然通风和引人注目的光影效果。

As the greens shift into blue, the pattern begins to evoke the natural. The vertical layering of the labyrinth takes on a quality of geological strata—formations that speak to the landscape lying under and beyond Charlotte’s urban core. Porosity is further derived from striating parts and the way they come together, providing both ventilation to the building and dramatic light filtration.

系统 | SYSTEM

作为一种新颖的立面系统,Wanderwall外表皮项目中没有采用任何二级结构,而是将外表皮作为一个连续的整体,悬挂在停车楼的外侧。与典型的镶板系统不同的是,Wanderwall外表皮是一个现场装配的统一超薄表面。而作为一种结构推覆体(这个概念来自于地质学,用于描述一种褶皱的石头地层,就像是覆盖在断层上的布料一样),外表皮呈现出了一种柔和的褶皱,使1/8英尺厚的铝板材料能够连续地覆盖在两个立面上。

As a novel approach to facade systems, Wanderwall doesn’t use any secondary structure, but hangs as one continuous piece on the building. Unlike typical panelized systems, Wanderwall’s skin is assembled onsite as a unified, ultra-thin surface. As a structural nappe—a term that comes from geology to describe a sheet of rock draped like a cloth over a fault—it assumes a gentle pleat that provides the structural depth for the ⅛ inch material to continuously span both elevations.

随着夏洛特市不断的蓬勃发展,Wanderwall外表皮作为一种新型的公共资产,将这种城市增长的精神展现在大众的视野之中。而作为北卡罗来纳州境内最大的公共艺术品,本项目完成了艺术与建筑的统一,从广义概念上为人们提供了一种接近艺术的机会,同时改变了Uptown住宅区当下、以及未来的特点。

While the city of Charlotte continues to flourish, Wanderwall shares the spirit of growth as a new public asset. As the largest public artwork in North Carolina, the project unifies art and architecture to provide access to art at a broad scale and to change the character of the Uptown neighborhood for its residents current and future.
