Xi’an, referred to as “Ho” for short, is known as Chang’an and Hokyo in ancient times. It is the capital city of Shaanxi Province, a sub-provincial city, a megacity, and the core city of Guanzhong Plain. Education and industrial base. In 1935, Mr. Shi Fengxiang, the richest man in the northwest and the Chinese spinning king, established a military supplies factory in the Xi’an area, the Dahua Spinning Factory, which played an extremely important role in the War of Resistance Against Japan. For half a century, Dahua Spinning Mills had been prosperous until 2008, when it applied for policy bankruptcy because of its severe debt and inability to recover.
Twelve years later, tracing the footsteps of Dahua Spinning Mill, we condensed its essence and transformed the plant area. Retain the traces of history, take the two starting points of linearity and pop as the concept, maintain the characteristics of the factory, perform a landscape interpretation of the concept of the site, and form a unique commercial and cultural center of Xi’an.

Xi’an Forte Dahua 1935 is located in the business district of Dahua Yarn Factory, east of Taihua South Road, south of Dahua Yarn Factory Subsidiary, west of Yarn Factory East Street, and north of Taihua Road Primary School. The project is close to the Daming Palace Ruins Park and the ancient city wall ruins in Xi’an. It has profound historical heritage and rich cultural resources. Analyzing the original venue, we found that because the shopping flow line is too single, which limits the value development of the surrounding shops, the designer will re-integrate the flow of people in the mall, gather the scattered flow of people together, and maximize the commercial value of the complex.

The project emphasizes the combination of technology and various art forms, and focuses on mobility and variability; it satisfies a variety of activities and different time and season needs, attracting popularity. The landscape design adopts a modern style. The designer reshapes the streamline of the main axis and intersperses rich activity nodes on the axis. Due to the clear directivity of the moving path, it also serves as a icing on the cake for the shops near the landscape nodes.

The dry-spray landscape where people flow online effectively increases the interactive nature of the spatial landscape, inspiring people’s nature of being hydrophilic and near water. In order to avoid occupying pedestrian space, dry spray water scenes are mostly set close to the rafters, and wave light is used to make the landscape more magnificent.

The circular lights on the ground of the large square are lined up, such as the pearl light falling into the world, lighting up the empty space of the square.

The workshop art and culture are incorporated into the wall design. The graffiti-style walls are matched with the characteristic wall lamps to dye the factory atmosphere.
