The Bund keeps the imprints of times left by numerous people with lofty ideals, and each and every architecture designed and built on the Bund represents a crystallization of the most advanced engineering techniques of the age which witnessed their birth. The entire Shanghai Rockefeller Group Rockbund project, jointly designed by CCDI and the US ARQ, consists of the repair and renovation of some historical architectures and the design and construction of some new architectures, injects a diversified range of functions (commerce, office, hotel, apartment, cultural exchange, etc.) into this area, and aims to create a large-scale high culture and fashion life center, reshape the urban glamor on the water banks of the Huangpu River and the Suzhou River, inject new vitality into the Bund and attract both domestic and overseas talents to work, live and enjoy their life here. Meanwhile, a coordinated and balanced urban relation is proposed to be established between Lujiazui and the Bund.
The three newly-built 14-story towers, integrating commercial, office and residential functions, will carry on the style of the 12 protected architectures in the base, and be divided vertically into three parts in the form of set-back layer by layer, thus to perfectly coordinate the new and old architectures, interact with the public space and meet the functional and open space demands of modern architectures.
The combination and unification of new and old architectures constitute the focus of this project, and, through cautiously dealing with architectural massing division, facade material colors and wall-window relation, the architect has ensured that the styles of monomer architectures conform to the overall style of the project and has embodied the concept of modern architecture protection and development advocated by contemporary architects. After completion, the three towers, located between Mingyuan Road and Huqiu Road, will fully utilize the lane-alley relations of old architectures to introduce pedestrian flows into the base, and effectively create a connected and penetrated texture for the entire area through the connections of the inner environment.
The dark red pottery clay face bricks are used according to the texture and lines of old architectures, and new architectures are built in conformity to the overall style of the project.
Tall and straight vertical lines are attached on the dark red pottery clay face bricks, perfectly tallying with China Baptist Building in decorative art and style.
Thus, in the project, we have developed corner-type lapping columns based on existing single-time lapping columns, and fully utilized the spatial changes on the architectures to create a unique girderless floor-corner-type lapping column structure system.
A finite element comparative analysis is conducted on the 3D space of the multi-software and multi-model fine structure.
The seismic shaking table is conducted for simulation to ensure its structural safety and its satisfaction of anti-seismic performance requirements provided by the laws and regulations of the state.
Water supply and drainage: ingenious combination of top-brand equipment, bronze rainwater pipes and water mist system, embodying low-key luxury
Heating and ventilation design: adequate consideration of the protection and restoration as the past of historical architectures in the design of the air conditioning system, and setting of a centralized energy center in the historical architectural complex
Intelligent design: staged project development, customized comprehensive pipeline transition scheme in M&E design, and satisfaction of service function demands in various stages
