By using 3D animation to show how one high-rise building is constructed, it’s easy to see that the urban landscape is divided. Probably most people working in buildings like that spend most of the day sitting in each of the small grids in the office. It’s hard for them to feel the outside breeze since normal artificial light provides uniform illumination.
This project shows another picture. On the 41st floor, architect builds “a hanging street block”. More precisely, inside scenery is designed to be corresponding to each side of the cityscape including state of the roads and green belts, etc. Streets and green belts are seen to be connected here, fragmented urban landscape is completed.
The floor of the whole space is covered with special custom carpets to make it like outside state. Technically, the floor, plants, and lights above the plants are matching well. With purpose of building “a park”, custom furniture is placed between plants. Two main work areas and several functional offices are laid in the “blocks", while central core tube is displayed in the form of a building facade structure. People can actually feel be in the city, also taking a little wander round “the park” is satisfied.
The changes of light with time flow can be truly experienced since natural light comes from all quarters. Artificial "outdoor" light together with natural light creates perfect effects of light and shadow. “Indoor” light is strictly controlled just enough to meets the intensity of illumination. The combination of both “outdoor” and “indoor” light helps to distinguish the difference. Two main work areas are circled by large pieces of glass. On the glass, there are cloud shape patterns made up of translucent small squares. It not only makes better effect of light and shadow on the floor, but also let those who work here feel outdoor atmosphere.
