Best Future Building of the Year (Drawing Board)

Future Building - Drawing Board.JPG

The use of positive and negative spaces is evolved from the surrounding Sichuan landscapes and portrays an interesting balance between the physical and the ephemeral.  

These relationships are explored by designer, Andrew Bromberg at Aedas, in balancing the ‘imagined‘ creations of the performance venues and school of arts with the ‘tangibles’ of the buildings which contain them.  

The physical line between the tangible and the ephemeral is celebrated as a series of connected stepped public terraces, beneath which are the varying volumes of venues below. Above these terraces are topographic bamboo gardens which provide an impression of the surrounding mountains.  

Users can escape the busy streets of Chengdu and find sanctuary, reacquaint with nature, and view the city from a unique experience.

Judges’ comments include:

  • Delicately balancing the physical and the ephemeral
  • Celebrating the performing arts within its structural definition
  • Arranged as a series of stepped public terraces
  • Providing a sanctuary of nature as well as a view on the city
