Yinchuan Sunac City Exhibition Center | Arch-Age-Design(AAD)

The Yinchuan Sunac City Exhibition Center is located near the entrance of Yinchuan’s Gedi Lake Park. The tower, infused with the traditional culture and regional features of Yinchuan’s “Silk Road,” is the city’s icon. Initially, the project served as a sales center, but it subsequently transformed into a civil cultural center available to the public.

Yinchuan Sunac City Exhibition Center’s Design Concept

The structure is designed in a simple style. To embrace Gedi Lake naturally and attractively, the circular blocks and soft and clean curving features are merged into the field design, suggesting a thread of silk floating on the Lake. The half-moon-shaped roof slopes toward and reaches into the Lake. The perforated thin columns are neatly dispersed under the roof’s two wings. In the evening, the built-in light strips illuminate, giving the roof the appearance of being raised and hanging in the sky. The slab pontoon stretches into the Lake, linking humans and nature.

The fake stone wall on the first level correlates to the perforated panel curtain wall on the second story in terms of the urban facade, expressing the Oriental idea that “existence and non-existence give birth to the other.” The form of the hole on the perforated panel is created and inspired by Malan flowers, Yinchuan’s city flower. The panel splice creates two curving lines that imitate the waves of the Lake and add to the layers of light and shade. The translucent tempered hollow glass curtain wall and pear white roofing aluminum panels look crystal and lightweight while facing the Lake.

The native schist slope and the curving steel sheet wall link and expand inward at the building’s entry, highlighting the entrance’s guiding role. The front yard is pure white, with trees within the waterscape; the rear field is like a floating empty island, implying that “one island creates one world.” The sensation of purposefully produced landscapes is diminished, leaving the area calm and pure. Along with the structure, the mountain, lake, tree, island, and green ground form a microclimate system, resulting in a dynamic landscape area.

The internal area is organized around the curving wall. Irregular, high, and low interwoven arc-shaped walls support the entire building while connecting and dividing various functional rooms, expanding the layers of space and increasing spatial diversity. The translucent glass curtain wall opposite the lake allows visitors to detect seasonal changes. It blurs the line between the building and its environment, allowing them to engage with nature more effectively.

Using Gedi Lake’s natural resources, the restrained design flawlessly mixes architecture with ecological park planning, with the idea of preserving the environment and considering time, space, and light. In the clash of tradition and innovation, the project redefines the locality and contemporaneity of architecture.
