Wuhan-Shiyan High-speed Railway (from Wuhan to Shiyan) is 399km long, with 12 stations along the line, connecting Wudang Mountain, Gulongzhong, legendary emperor Shen Nong’s hometown, Yellow Crane Tower and other famous tourism spots. The tourism revenue of this region, so-called the tourism high-speed railway with the most beautiful landscape in Hubei, accounts for 70% of that of Hubei Province. With the opening of the Wuhan-Shiyan High-speed Railway, the distance between Wuhan to Suizhou will be shortened to 50 minutes only. The high-speed railway provides an unprecedented opportunity for the urban development of Suizhou, especially for the tourism. As a destination of tourism spot, the station will also become an important icon to present the local uniqueness.
武漢至十堰高鐵（武漢至十堰）長399公里，沿線有12個車站，連接武當山，古龍中，傳奇的神農故里，黃鶴樓和其他著名的旅遊景點。 該地區的旅遊收入，即湖北風景最美的所謂旅遊高鐵，佔湖北省的70％。 隨著武十高鐵的通車，武漢到隨州的距離將僅縮短至50分鐘。 高速鐵路為隨州的城市發展，尤其是旅遊業提供了前所未有的機遇。 作為旅遊勝地，該車站也將成為展示當地獨特性的重要標誌。
The Millennium Ginkgo Valley in Luoyang Town is one of the four ancient ginkgo landscapes in the world. During every Mid-Autumn Festival, the golden leaves fly around the ginkgo trees, becoming a paradise in the eyes of tourists. Hence, we follow tree structural system by creating a forest-like space. The straight tree structure has the most direct visual connection with the dynamic canopy, and clearly shows the logic of structural force transmission. Therefore, in the design of Suizhou South Railway Station, we integrate the natural artistic feeling of “under the ginkgo tree” into concept design from the perspective of presenting urban regional characteristics, so that tourists can get unique space experience.
洛陽鎮的千年銀杏谷是世界四大古代銀杏景觀之一。 在每個中秋節期間，金黃色的葉子在銀杏樹上飛舞，成為遊客眼中的天堂。 因此，我們通過創建類似森林的空間來遵循樹結構系統。 直樹結構與動態頂篷之間的視覺聯繫最為直接，並且清楚地顯示了結構力傳遞的邏輯。 因此，在隨州火車南站的設計中，我們從呈現城市區域特色的角度，將“銀杏樹下”的自然藝術感融入概念設計中，使遊客獲得獨特的空間體驗。
Tree structure and space creation｜樹的結構和空間的創造
Through the abstraction and reconstruction of ginkgo leaves, we get the basic “leaf unit” that makes up space. The dimension of each unit is 27 x 24 meters, covering 648 square meters. The main space of the station is composed of 24 identical leaf-like units. Also, we optimized further during implementation: every four small roof units are grouped and converted into six groups of continuous curved roofs. The structure is more reasonable, construction difficulty is lessened, while construction cost is reduced in the meantime.Thus, the rhythmic natural curves and the light and flexible architectural structure can be integrated into the internal and external building space. The leaf-like unit consists of architecture, structure and lighting. The light reveals gradually the internal structure through the film, just like the leaf texture, which metaphors the nature and embodies the beauty of structure.
通過銀杏葉的抽象和重構，我們獲得了構成空間的基本“葉單元”。 每個單元的尺寸為27 x 24米，佔地648平方米。 車站的主要空間由24個相同的葉狀單元組成。 此外，我們在實施過程中進一步進行了優化：將每四個小型屋頂單元分組並轉換為六組連續的彎曲屋頂。 結構更加合理，減輕了施工難度，同時降低了施工成本，因此，有節奏的自然曲線和輕巧靈活的建築結構可以整合到內部和外部建築空間中。 葉狀單元由建築，結構和照明組成。 光線通過薄膜逐漸揭示出內部結構，就像葉子的紋理一樣，隱喻了大自然並體現了結構的美。
Indoor and outdoor lighting｜室內和室外照明
The comfort of indoor lighting is also an important factor. A skylight on the roof produces soft diffuse light through the filtration of transparent film, avoiding glare and direct sunlight, and the indoor illumination is more uniform as well. We determine the dimension of skylight through lighting simulation calculation, so that the waiting hall can meet the illumination requirements in the daytime even when it is cloudy. The sunlight shines through the top skylight into the “leaf” units, and become goldenly luminescent caused by the light diffusion, creating the spatial intention of ” golden leaves fly around under the ginkgo tree”. It perfectly shows the warm and transparent texture of the leaves. The introduction of natural light makes the architectural space vivid and full of vitality. At night, they will be lighted by the LED lamps inside through transparent films, which conveys the meaning of traditional Chinese “lanterns”, and further enhances the symbolism and instructiveness of the station.
New materials and new technology｜新材料新技術
The key to the formation of this spatial effect is the performance of the ETFE film covering the outside of the unit structure. We determined the three basic elements of 75% transmittance, diffuse reflection and golden color, and had looked for suppliers all over the world. At the last minute, German ETFE film manufacturers agreed to customize this material for us. ETFE film material has good durability, flame retardancy and light penetration, but it is sensitive to tension and temperature changes. In order to ensure that the “leaf” finally forms a plump and smooth curved surface, the project team needs to have extremely accurate control on the tension of cable net system and film material. Together with the construction company and the university research team, we did an in-depth study on the mechanical properties of film materials and the special technology of cable film stress system. Relying on BIM and 3D field scanning technology, we optimized and innovated the some parts and structures, developed a whole set of technical measures, and accurately completed the design and installation of various components of “leaf”.
Highly comfortable space experience｜高度舒適的太空體驗
When you come to the railway entrance of Suizhou South Station on the highway by car, you will feel you are in the forest of ginkgo trees. You will be deeply impressed by the semi-outdoor space of this well-sheltered station. When you walk inside the Suizhou South Station, the gentle, diffuse and comfortable natural light penetrates from the “ginkgo leaves”. Due to the good performance of sound absorption effect brought by the film with surface area more than ten thousand square meters, the waiting hall is very quiet, and the broadcast is exceptionally clear without the common noise distraction like other train stations have.
當您開車前往高速公路隨州南站的鐵路入口時，您會感到自己在銀杏樹的森林中。 這個井井有條的車站的半戶外空間將給您留下深刻的印象。 當您在隨州南站內散步時，柔和，漫反射和舒適的自然光線會從“銀杏葉”中穿透。 由於表面積超過一萬平方米的電影所帶來的良好的吸聲效果，候車廳非常安靜，廣播非常清晰，沒有其他火車站那樣的常見噪音干擾。
Eventually, the “ginkgo leaf unit” has become the most impressing part in the entire building with rhythmic structural unit, soft light and gentle texture. It blurs the artificial and natural boundary, and illustrates the profound eastern traditional philosophy of “unity of man and heaven”.
