Works Appreciation
Car accessories store
The work, inspired by caves, is a car accessories store located in Taskin City Plaza, Changsha. Just like the cave-human symbiosis over four thousand years ago, cars evolve as a necessity of life nowadays. Based on the architectural form of caves on the loess plateau, the work’s space design features thick and rustic loess color as the dominant hue, lending a touch of profound history. A modern colored loam wall serves as the middle partition to restore a simple ecological sense and reconcile the space color palettes, thus highlighting the space atmosphere. The wall niches are inspired by the Yungang Grottoes in Shanxi province, and the niche-shaped stands, once dedicated to enshrining Buddhas, are now applied to the interior space to display the exquisite car accessories one by one, which take on a unique modern look against the rough earth walls amid the light at the top. Besides, the design of the cantilever beams on the cave’s ceiling has been improved by integrating modern steel wire light strips, giving a shading alteration to the pure white dome structure and rendering a sense of layering to the interior space. The entrance door is shaped like an arched hood seen in ancient carriages. With the cave, which is heavily tinged with profoundness and antiquity of loess culture, and the car accessories coming as a result of modern industrial technology, space embodies more of the fusion of tradition and modernity, as well as the loess culture and the modern industrial culture.
