Samaranch Memorial

Museum for Archiland

Maybe nothing is more suitable to demonstrate a great spirit than an excellent building. The buildings transformed by the Olympic rings commemorate Samaranch and inherit the Olympic spirit. The multiple use functions of the memorial and its low-carbon design are a good interpretation of smart sustainable design. The building should grow with people and the environment. The supporting commercial buildings are integrated into the landscape to protect the overall natural landscape and form a large and varied experience space.

Sunken county yards integrate additional sporting spaces that all in all celebrate both the legacy and life of today using highest level of smart energy design.

Production Technology

Considering land form and project features, we present a theme park with multi dimension experiences. We put much effort on landmark building design and public space design and create an experience space. Functional space is put in place according to exhibition sequence. Roof garden has become a nature transition between interior and external space. Landscape and architecture are integration of traditional Chinese and western style with different space feelings every step you are forward.

Design Challenge

The biggest challenge is how to reduce energy consumption. At the beginning of the design, we decided to use as much natural light as possible for design. We calculated the position and intensity of sunlight entering the courtyard and indoor windows, and performed simulation experiments on thermal load, glass surface orientation and position to obtain the most economical and efficient solution, which will save more than 84% of energy, and also makes temperature and lighting more suitable.

Project Duration

The project started in 2011 in Tianjin and finished in 2013 in Tianjin, China

Operation Flow

The building should grow with people and the environment. The supporting commercial buildings are integrated into the landscape to protect the overall natural landscape and form a large and varied experience space. In addition to showing the collection of Mr. Samaranch's life, the memorial also has a lecture hall, temporary exhibition hall, winter garden, etc., which can be used to hold various conferences, seminars, exhibitions and other activities.

Research

In order to balance his own present mind and has a need for commemorating time event and people passed to understand his own present and future condition, Challenge is how to avoid the exhibit and content itself not becoming outdated and rather constantly renewing the perspective to our ever changing present. In other words, how to extend a legacy of the modern Olympics only into a life celebrating institution as Olympics.

Inspiration

The original intention is to build a green building that commemorates Mr. Samaranch, inherits the Olympic spirit, expresses sports and sustainable. It was transformed through the five Olympic rings: the main building presents two intersecting circles, and the other three circles transform into a sunken courtyard. The "8" shape commemorates the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games. The "S" shape stands for "Samaranch"; the third is that the shape symbolizes Infinity and eternity.
