Xixi Artists’ Club House in Hangzhou, China by AZL ARCHITECTS

Wednesday, April 30th, 2014

Article source: AZL ARCHITECTS

Located near the wetlands west of central Hangzhou, the Xixi Artists’ Club is laid out like a village with five units.  Each cluster relies on three Y-shaped volumes in two sizes, capped with six- and three-metre-square frameless windows, creating panoramas of the surrounding landscape.  Twisting fiberglass installations work with the cubic structure to redefine internal spaces and join walls, floors, and ceilings together.

In the southern Chinese city of Dongguan – a city of several million – a basketball stadium has been completed to plans by architects von Gerkan, Marg and Partners (gmp). The building can be seen from afar and is a landmark that provides identity and orientation to the people in the new district of Liaobu. The stadium has space for nearly 15,000 visitors and can be used for sports and other events; it is the new main competition venue for one of the most successful Chinese basketball teams, the Dongguan Leopards. Basketball is increasingly popular with the Chinese, particularly so since Yao Ming, who is celebrated as a national hero, made his entry into the US basketball league – the NBA.
