All those years of hauling have left it deformed. Even though it’s missing a bogie and has been derailed, when you saw it you could not help but feel respect. Not like what we see now … they don’t make them like they used to.” This is how Nelson, the train driver, describes boxcar 1513.

SKYCOURTS in Chengdu, China by Höweler and Yoon Architecture

Saturday, December 21st, 2013

Article source: howeler + yoon architecture

Sky Courts Exhibition Hall, located in the International Intangible Culture Park in Chengdu China, utilizes the internalized strategy of the traditional Chinese courtyard house to create a variety of aggregated exhibition galleries within one building. Broken up into a series of variably scaled halls wrapped around seven courtyards, the structure creates a range of open spaces inside the deep floor plan. This ‘packed’ and ‘wrapped’ internalized organization has both spatial as well as environmental benefits to the building.

The jury characterizes the winning project as a “architecturally superior solution” to the task at hand.

The tower is shaped like a sharp origami cut, urban sculpture with a significant architectural expression. The white steel tower will stand out as a glowing landmark giving identity to the area and act as a point of reference and meetings in this new part of the city.
