Yuzhou Group: When it refers to the buildings and environments of Chinese style, we can’t help connecting them with slope crest, courtyard, the courtesy order, axis and the accompanying sense of ritual. When they are changed by the design, the more stable these conventional elements are, the more obvious the innovation effects are. In Chinese ancient city, Jimo, the new community landscape designed by Antao, uses imaginative form language and technological means to challenge the inherent cognitions about Chinese traditional architecture symbols and opens a road of cloud plains to the future.
The project is in ancient city, Jimo. The combination of cloud plains and mountains make this city have unique temperament. The designers choose the cloud as the core of the place and use five main scenes to realize the space flowing: enter the “Front Gate”, step on the “Cloud Bridge”, pass by the Cloud Houses, walk into the “Cloud Plains”, go to the “Academy” and wander among the “Green Valley”. The new Chinese style is more than the space definition of deep courtyard, axial symmetry and brand opening and closing. In this project, we design a flowing scene to show spatial continuity and make a new pattern of Chinese style. The designers choose the cloud as the core of the place and use five main scenes to realize the space flowing: enter the “Front Gate”, step on the “Cloud Bridge”, pass by the Cloud Houses, walk into the “Cloud Plains”, go to the “Academy” and wander among the “Green Valley”. Changing the traditional courtesy order of deep courtyard and axial symmetry, we use a fluent moving line to make the life scenes in series, having the new possibility of rebuilding a new Chinese style. In the future plan of this demonstration area, the place will be transformed into a kindergarten. We also consider it into the design.

山门｜从传统礼序到轻盈灵动 The Front Gate｜From traditional courtesy order to being light and smart
The main entrance, “Front Gate” is the result of modern extraction and transformation of traditional cornices. It shows the new form of eave by two overlapped grey tiles of raking cornices. We use clear frosted glass to replace the gable wall. The thick and heavy eave changes into light overhanging eaves to present the change of light and shadow from inside out.

云桥｜从氤氲仙缭到循环动线 The Cloud Bridge｜From the enshrouding mist to a circular moving line
Entering the “Front Gate”, we can see an arc “Cloud Bridge” to connect the gate and the academy. The match of glass handrail and terrazzo floor shows a sense of pure and clear. When it rises to the 2.7m of the bridge floor, there is the best place to overlook the whole scenery. You can see the panorama of the academy above the clouds. The space under the “Cloud Bridge” provides the future play place for the kindergarten and forms the circular moving line of running game.

云海｜从旦暮光影到云卷云舒 The Cloud Plains｜From light and shadow in a day to the gathering and spreading of the clouds
Before entering the “Cloud Plains” from the “Cloud Bridge”, the switching point of the space, changes into the eave above the clouds. This “Cloud House” continues the form of sloping roof. One side is grey tile sloping roof while another is the glass illuminating surface. It shows the internal structure outside and purely presents the beauty of mechanical structure. From the morning to the evening, the light and shadow change constantly. Above the “Cloud House”, there is a pure and clear picture, showing the comfortable scenery about gathering and spreading of the clouds. The up and down of the white curve grids form the shape of the clouds. Wandering among them is a kind of wonderful experience.

书院｜从天光云影到朗朗书声 The Academy｜From the brightness of the sky and shadow of the clouds to the sound of loud reading
The “Academy” stands uprightly on the Moon Pool. The clear water surface reflects the images of the sky and clouds. Looking back the “Cloud Bridge”, they form an unfolded picture scroll. The shape of Moon Pool changes the form of centraxonial big water surface, surrounding the “Academy” in a sinuous curve. In such peaceful and fine scenery, there are a group of birds going to fly. It brings a sense of moving and bright.

书院｜从云海观澜 到云梦星辰 The Green Valley｜From the Cloud Plains to see to the clouds and stars to dream
A breeze blows over and the stone wind chimes in the shape of clouds tinkle. They lead people to the sunken “Green Valley” in the clouds. The center lawn as the blank of the space becomes the activity spatial carrier of experience zone. It also sets aside the space of demolition and renovation for the kindergarten at a low cost.

In this design, we use a complete fluent moving line to connect the five main scenes with bridge, clouds and green valley. It brings people a different life experience. We give up the traditional Chinese style and build up a new Chinese style creation with great possibility.
