Qujiang Museum of Fine Arts Extension  曲江艺术博物馆扩建
曲江艺术博物馆位于西安大唐不夜城,大雁塔的南侧。业主希望在博物馆的东入口处建造新的标志性建筑。扩建项目以“城市纪念建筑物”为设计概念的起始,不仅实现了博物馆扩建所需的文化与商业功能,也成为了城市肌理和社会历史的具象缩影。原有的博物馆空间将此次扩建的建筑围绕于其中。如恩为了尽可能地减少对原建筑的影响与干预,仔细斟酌扩建部分的体量和细节。 扩建的建筑体量由四部分组成:下沉基座(Base)、雕塑步道(Sculptural Walk)、观景平台(Platform)和纪念建筑(Monument)。整个基座为现浇混凝土,从原广场的水平面下沉而来,延伸了公共空间。一楼入口处,如恩保留了部分原有的宽阔台阶,连接下沉基座。坚固的混凝土基座保留了博物馆的现有空间和餐厅,同时增加了新的功能空间,如零售空间和公共卫生间,旨在为相邻步行街的活动属性进行功能补充。
The Qujiang Museum of Fine Arts is located at the beginning section of Xi’an’s Datang Everbright City, south of the famed Giant Wild Goose Pagoda. The client asked for a new architectural icon at the East Entry of the museum. In response to the brief, Neri&Hu’s proposal takes the idea of a monolithic urban monument as the guiding concept to not only satisfy the museum’s newly expanded cultural and commercial functions, but to also serve as an anchor and a durable symbol of social history for the surrounding urban fabric. Since the vicinity of the site is occupied by existing galleries, the design intervention minimizes the impact of the new building through careful consideration for the architectural massing and detailing. The building is composed of four parts: the partially sunken Base, the Sculptural Walk circulation enclosure, the elevated podium Platform, and lastly the Monument. The entire base is finished with cast-in-place concrete. Partially sunken from the level of the existing plaza, the base is conceived as a continuous ground for the public. At the entry to the first floor, Neri&Hu has partially retained the original wide steps. The steps descend down to connect to a sunken piazza. The solid concrete base contains the former museum spaces and restaurant which have been retained, along with newly inserted functions such as retail spaces and public restrooms. These inserted functions complement the activities of the adjacent pedestrian street.
