From the architect. Jishan base of Jiangsu Software Park is located in a beautiful landscape of undulating hills. The project will provide suburban office spaces for IT companies. The courtyard walls enclose a flat artificial area in a natural undulating landscape, where courtyards and open working places flow on the ground floor. The second and third floor spaces are disassembled into different parts leaning against the walls, with nothing negative influence to the courtyard on the ground floor. All buildings on the site combined with the rolling topography, create an organic community and represent the same logical structure as the inner spaces of the building. The courtyard walls limit the interior space and define the boundary to the external environment.

The whitewash is used for the wall, while the rest facades of the up-floors are enveloped by the wooden components. Beside the suburban attractive environment, and under the blue sky in Nanjing, the white walls mixed with brown woods are expressing their respect to the traditional Jiangnan dwellings. The design of the tea house is integrated with the undulating landscape, inserting a small transformer substation into the sloping site, leaving the upper visible part as the teahouse. The house is encircled by a corridor hanging out of the main building, floating along the landform, or standing away from the ground, represents the topography in the architectural language. The corridor is enveloped by nylon threads, providing a hazy poetic status by its soft and translucent feature, which also gives the contemporary description of the traditional Jiangnan area of China.

What nylon thread? No point banging on about it if there are no pictures.

Gisela Schmoll · March 11, 2012

It's hard to tell if it's a good project since they didn't include any interior photos. Personally, I think the current emphasis on overwrought external form misses the point of architecture - the experience of being in space.

"I like it"
"I don't like it"

This falls below the level of critique expected from high school students.
