Now, in Dallas, Texas, the famous Japanese architect Kengo Kuma Rolex office building under construction in the form and quality of the environment has laid a new benchmark for the city. Kengo Kuma was elected 2020 Tokyo Olympic venues National Stadium chief architect, he specializes in the building, site associated with the natural environment, imaginative, and therefore an international reputation.
Dallas dynamic architecture
By virtue of Kuma-designed building in Dallas, Rolex introduced a new form of office buildings for the city. The building is located in Harwood area (Harwood District), in the 1984 Rolex building site nearby. 1984 Rolex Tower is the first building on the outskirts of Dallas ever built office building. “The design theme is the integration of the building in the Land into.” Kengo Kuma explained. “Usual office is independent and separate from the surrounding land. So I from the outset, by means of a low Japanese-style walls of the building will be connected with the ground, and then twist the building, from the ground to create a building, from the bottom the continuous movement, showing the dynamics of the building. ”
Replica Rolex build its office building, as it tabulation, as always pursue innovative ideas, Dallas building is no exception. Kuma’s work has always been bold and unconventional, complex and cleverly designed into the environment, the first buildings of its design was built in 1988, Izu irregular shape of a small bathroom, the bathroom in steel, wood and concrete to build from.
Thereafter, Kuma make good use of natural light, space, and clever use of the wall, which is the way he designed the building, which he called “the disintegration and decomposition”, this approach is still unique. His architectural designs have been made in the past four thematic exhibitions International Architecture Exhibition, which works will be on display this year.
Kengo Kuma design techniques for its creation of the building, many tricks, such as Tokyo Asakusa Culture Tourism Center (Asakusa Culture Tourism Centre), such as eight kinds of houses stacked together; Daiwa Ubiquitous Computing Research Building (Daiwa Ubiquitous Computing Research Building), cedar shingles adorn the walls, and winding, exquisite workmanship; Dongjing Jiao house (plastic House in Tokyo), whose walls are composed of 4 mm thick plastic, add fiber, made of rice paper or bamboo; Suntory Museum ( Suntory Museum of Art), the vertical louvers reminiscent of ancient ceramic unparalleled lattice windows and doors.
Japan’s historic architectural elements, is also applicable to the design of the new office building in Dallas. The new office building will be used as a sales and service center. Its foundation made a low stone wall around this reference Edo Castle Ishigaki wall. To Dallas office, the wall was seen as a connection point of the city, rather than a defensive structure. Seven floors from ground projections Harry Hines Street (Harry Hines Boulevard) and Moody Street (Moody Street) built at the corner, looks like a stack of cards in the rotation slightly distorted.
Kuma have a creed, is to integrate nature into their buildings; and also coincides with Rolex, the company has always been to protect the natural world, and therefore very supportive of Kengo Kuma designed this style, but also committed to the natural environment into downtown Dallas busy streets. Each protruding edges of the floor are covered with plants, two rooftop open space and ground all around the garden. This is a “Green” elements of the third generation of landscape architects Yamauchi Zhenwen (Sadafumi Uchiyama) provided for the building. These activities space with trees, and the ground around the construction of a waterfall and small pool.
Kengo Kuma’s design has always been a reference traditional Japanese architecture, this building is no exception. The dividing line between indoor outdoor fusion, he was particularly interested. He was always careful to put a hollow space and a balcony zoned out, that “side edge” (engawa). “In the traditional Japanese room, it is essential to create a hollow space, its function is not clear. But it is also a good way to Dallas, hot summer to cope with.” He said.
Shape and surface Kengo happiness of the Rolex building disintegrated, superb, wonderful workmanship. Each piece rises three floors begin with a visor from the outside cover. “We want to bring out the impression of light, so thin aluminum plate as a sun visor using the bottom of a similar grain pattern etched edges make very precise, sharp edges as much as possible to be made thinner, because the edges form an important part of our overall design Dallas sun is very strong, so we will set the visor depth of 400 mm. green will also be reflected to the balcony inside the building where the sun adoption. ”
The office building in Dallas, which can be described as very unique interior design, the use of wood
striking. For example Boardrooms walls and ceilings are lined up rows of raised wood; wood staff lounge ceiling layers overlap; floor reception area walls are decorated with Edo samurai arts and crafts, all of which are made with wooden slats.
“These gaps are used to increase the sense of lightness.” Kuma said. “This is very important because we want to avoid an overly strong feelings.” Therefore, the exquisite layered Rolex building facade designed in different ways in the building has been repeated. Every part of it reflects the Kuma space, shape, surface and feel natural and unique expression.
Precision Manufacturing in Milan
In Milan, the Design Council and the new logistics center service Rolex, originally intended to transform an existing building in the fifties Roman Gate area, it is centrally located with Rolex nineteenth century office building different. Rolex appointment Yibin Ni Architects (Studio Albini Associates), all because of the excellent track record of this company, the existing building will be carefully detailed modifications, or modernize, involving historic buildings from time to time. These projects include the Milan headquarters Consob, it is a clever renovated 19th century building; in addition to carefully refurbished Masi Mai fortress Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, this castle built with mud bricks and clay, has a long history; and more recent projects ─ Lombardy Italy Assumption innovative rehabilitation and expansion project of the Church of the Benedictine convent.
45-year-old Francisco Yibin Ni (Francesco Albini) immediately found that the current Rolex building located Theo Philippe Petit Avenue (Viale Angelo Filippetti) and Kasu Luo Street
(Via Cassolo) at the junction of the V-shaped position, it can not be modified. Yibin Ni Architects another way, decided to build a new building, and the construction of ultra-precision metal facades, dynamic. This ability to be innovative approach to meet the challenges of 2016 the central theme of the Venice Architecture Biennale, by Alejandro ‧ Allah Wiener (Alejandro Aravena) led, and reflects the investment has been committed to creating Rolex spirit.
Ground and first floor of the building is a maintenance work area, then top with a multi-purpose conference room. In the latter rows of wooden shutters. A maintenance specialist public direct access to the rooftop garden. Kasu Luo flank rooftop garden along the street (Via Cassolo) extending another rooftop garden is located in a quiet courtyard on the north side; and the third garden is located on the ground extended range. Courtyard built watch repair training school. Building logistics and storage area located in the basement, the basement occupy two floors.
Building at the junction of two streets neatly “separate”, so that the sun can be projected within the three-storey atrium entrance of. This focus on structure design, together with a supporting pillar function, standing in between two layers of glass curtain wall, to ensure maintenance and Meetings do not impede the column, so as to re-plan work space, is quite easy.
So transparent and flexible interior features, will need a lot of fine-tuning. Frans high ‧ Yibin Ni Yibin Ni Architects was founded in 1930 and since then has been fine-tuning process is part of the spirit of the firm. He is an accomplished architect, has designed museums, subway stations, as well as many classic furniture, such as Canapo rocking chair, as well as glass, steel and wood made sailing simple Veliero bookshelf. Twenty-first century in which an outstanding architect Renzo Piano (Renzo Piano), also served as his intern. Today, Yibin Ni Architects from the Frans high ‧ Yibin Ni son Mark leadership, coincidentally, he was in Renzo Piano’s studio as an intern.
Francisco ‧ Yibin Ni described his design as “artigianato razionalizzato” ─ logical processes. This process precisely with blinds and orifice design Rolex building form, since the main feature of both is the building’s exterior walls. Electric vertical metal blinds to the street side of the light of the sun through the angle automatically changes the point of view; in addition, set into a thousand pieces of 1 mm thick stainless steel plates between the two windows. “This building restrictions light, maintaining privacy, the right people can see the building work outside, but the street people do not see them.” Yibin Ni said.
Yibin Ni Architects spent a whole year, a comprehensive test mock-office complex and the exterior structure. “In other words, we can truly study the details and resolve any issues.” Yibin Ni said. “Before we did not really know what will happen when those steel, high temperatures or outdoors in the sun.”
Rolled steel plates will grind cutting, so that it presents a perfect smooth clean feeling. Even the steel from hot rollers to move the polishing machine mode should also be tested. Precisely because they do not make steel processing to slight depression in the external walls will be very obvious.
Rolex Tower “logical process” is also reflected in its computer control technology and environmental systems. Heating and air conditioning of the building by a ground source heat pump regulator, and ground source heat pump is connected to the following building three 60-meter-deep borehole; Each room has a light sensor; the building is also used in combination of natural and mechanical ventilation facilities; conference hall rooftop There is also a row of solar panels.
Milan people, the building has become the new Rolex Junior modern buildings represent a true and appropriate image of the brand new visual effect: “We want to show this building among the metal materials and reflect the light, and the light of day refraction changes. “Yibin Ni said.
