数字化时代，人们习惯沉浸于精彩的虚拟世界，而与真实空间的关系日渐疏远。受居住空间的限制，公共空间日渐成为生活场所的重要延展，因此公共空间内的装置除艺术性，还需具备更多的功能，以提升空间的整体氛围，拉近人与环境的关系。苏州国际设计周选在有着浓厚人文气息的桃花坞唐寅故居片区举办，旨在借由一年一度的文化活动，呼吁和吸引大众关注文化设计，同时带动此地的文化商业发展。唐寅片区内，随处可见的水景庭院凸显了此处的人文气息。SODA建筑师事务所以苏州折扇作为灵感来源，借用扇子的结构方式和宣纸质感的材料在水塘中打造出沉浸式的扇形装置。扇面运用宣纸质感的创新材料制作而成，由中轴向两端展开垂向水面，打破对原建筑内水景的观看方式，用当代的设计讲述苏州传统的文化故事。扇形装置借唐寅《看泉听风图》的意境取名“言乐庭”（whisper of wind），进入装置，观者便可在风声泉景中体验当代设计与苏州历史气息碰撞出的契合感。
At digital ages, people get used to being immersed in wonderful virtual world while drifting apart from the real life. With the evolved social structure and limited residential space, public space is gradually becoming an extension of personal living space. Therefore, other than artistry, appliances in public space shall possess more functions to improve the atmosphere of public space and improve the relationship between human beings and environment. The venue for Suzhou International Design Week is Tang Yin Former Residence District which has an atmosphere of humanism. With this activity, the public can be appealed and attracted to culture design. Meanwhile local cultural business development can be driven. In the Tang Yin district, waterscape courtyard that can be seen everywhere shows humanism of this place. Design concept of SODA was bases on famous Suzhou folding fan. Inspired by layered structure of folding fan and texture of Xuan paper, an immersive fan-shaped fitting was created. When the fan is opened, it will be vertical to water surface to divide spaces, which has broken the observation styles of waterscape in original buildings. Fan-shaped fitting was inspired by the artistic conception of Tang Yin Drawing in Viewing Sight of Spring and Listening to Wind to be entitled as “whisper of wind”. Entering into the fitting, observers can experience both modern design in wind whisper and historical atmosphere of humanism in Suzhou.

The whole body of whisper of wind is pure white. Gallery bridge on the water fades away at the entrance of building, which implicitly expresses the information of entering another place. By overlooking the space, picturesque disordered fans cover the water pool, and the fan surface is broken up into strips of hanged picture scroll drooping into the water pool from high altitude. Tip of the fan is the core district of whisper of wind, and also the main place for indoor activities. By drawing observers’ visual attentions, designer cuts out the space into three sections of rest, view and activity spaces with vertically hanged picture scrolls. By imitating the “one step up makes a difference view” of botanical garden, this area enables observers to wander in the semi-open and semi-secret environment. An open designed courtyard on the fans blurs the boundary feeling of entity walls. Sounds of wind blowing picture scroll, hazy shadow and inverted image in water make temporary space the “intermediary agent” between people and environment, using of artistic perception to blend functional space into humanistic temperament field. Through modern design language, it helps observers to enter another place and experience a relaxing atmosphere of “viewing spring and listening to wind”.

Both opened fans and vertically hanged picture scroll select the Tyvek® as the main materials. The crystal feeling and high reflectance of Tyvek® can project the sunlight softly on the ground and form mottled images. When people are walking through the picture, their shadows are also projected into the picture scroll to become a part of the scene. On the vertically hanged picture scroll, the Song of Peach Blossom Nunnery by Tang becomes an undulate landscape scene, which is demonstrated by laser cutting. Pure and shallow water reflects inverted image of landscape and extends into blurry virtual images.
