No.1 Dishui Lake Terminal in Lingang New City, Shanghai
Location: DSH-H1-1-12 Parcel, main City area, Lingang New Town
Floor area: 9633 sqm
The base of No. 1 Dishui Lake Terminal is located in the green area on the northwest side of the lake around the drip lake. The north side of it is the planned commercial building block, and the subway entrance and exit is about 100 meters away. Therefore, in addition to the need to become an important transportation facility in the future, the terminal and its surrounding green space need to pass a very important waterfront public node for the surrounding area. Considering various site design conditions and architectural functional requirements, the design proposal proposes the overall design of the architectural and landscape topography but maintains an independent design concept in terms of structure. That is to say, on the whole site, the wharf and the surrounding areas will be provided with a green, tree-lined and pleasant public green space. At the same time, the wharf supporting buildings will be displayed on the lakeside in the way of landscape. It is possible to make effects matching the lake scenery and to form a space which can accommodate activities and be easy to stay.
The building is linearly laid out along the lake in the base, with a mesh structure that maximizes the space under a porous green roof. Since No. 1 Dishui Lake Terminal is located in the coastal area, the design considers reinforced concrete structures to withstand erosion from the sea breeze. Therefore, the entire building will be laid out in a short span of about 6 meters, but the goal is the wide-angle view that the large-span structure can provide. So the design of the basic structural unit becomes a comprehensive consideration. In addition to minimizing the interference of the component size on the line of sight through the bracing and brackets, the ceiling lighting wells and the roof greening tree pool are also taken into consideration. Therefore, a kind of indoor and outdoor space communication is constructed, and the viewing effect can be integrated in the horizontal direction. This is to create a rich landscape environment in the way of architectural space, and to unify the building and the environment in the overall shape, creating a space with a rich sense of stay and leisure.
