2021 GFD 🏆 Awards

Winner | Chenyue Urban Greenland Park Exhibition Hall | Shanghai PTArchitects

Chenyue Urban Greenland Park Exhibition Hall is adjacent to Changzhou Bauhinia Park, backed by Hengtang River Wetland Park, and close to the city Ferris wheel. The surrounding environment is wonderful. Not only does the open park-level plot provide an open and shared recreation area for citizens, but also it weakens the boundary between the exhibition hall and the city. The architect intends to create a modern exhibition hall in a wetland park. It is hoped that the project will provide the city with a living node full of artistic atmosphere while assuming the function of a demonstration area, so as to trigger the reflection on the relationship between iconic buildings and the city.

The inspiration of the project inherited Libeskind’s post-modern deconstruction techniques, breaking the traditional enclosed demonstration buildings, boldly adopting nonlinear polylines. Through the dismantling and reconstruction of geometric shapes, and reasonable use of honeycomb panels and stones in the special-shaped geometric body, a very contagious public building tone is set. The architect was persistent in trying various plastic arts in the design process, and exploring the emerging architectural style, deconstructivism. The exploration is intended to embark on a new road for future architecture.

In terms of modeling, through various combinations of irregular deconstructive lines and exploration of the possibilities of various geometric figures, it is intended to be infinitely close to the tonal shaping of public architectural sculptures. The building facade is made of large-area grey wood grain marble and hexagonal honeycomb aluminum panels. By pursuing the minimal combination of marble and aluminum panels, it reflects the future international aesthetic recognition.


In terms of space division and traffic flow planning, it first passes through an art corridor surrounded by green plants, forming a visual corridor that leads directly to the lakefront. After being edified by the greenery and artistic atmosphere, visitors will enter the second space through the stairs in the atrium. After reaching the second floor, visitors will see a sand table offering an intuitive understanding of regional planning. Then visitors will be invited to the negotiation area, and finally to the outdoor 270-degree viewing terrace, where they will have a panoramic view of the surrounding landscape. The first-floor atrium space is planned and designed as a green space. The purpose is to introduce greenery into the interior, provide a vibrant atmosphere for the interior, and strengthen the indoor-outdoor connection while weakening the sense of division between indoor and outdoor.


the installation of honeycomb aluminum panels on irregular surfaces and the splicing and installation of irregular stones. To this end, a 1:1 off-site model was made in advance to simulate the problems that may occur in reality. Then adjustments will be made according to the problems of the off-site model.


The transparent gray space design at the bottom of the building creates an open demonstration area interface, changing the traditional method of isolating the demonstration area from the outside world. It weakens the interface between the building and the city, and adds a new recreation area for Changzhou people.
