Tothree：Wave is the language of the sea. The design takes waves as the theme element, so it is called “SeaTalker”.
The Global Mind Land of Sunac is built along the sea, overlooking Dalian Bay and enjoying the beauty of the sea at all times. After raising the water level in the atrium of the project, it seems that there is no boundary between the site and the sea at a glance, making people as if in the sea. To Three design soon determined the design theme for the site to have a dialogue with the natural environment – SeaTalker, who use the natural language of waves to sing songs on the seashore.
In the brand building of the project, the stone design presents a sparkling visual pattern with the dense arrangement of geometric blocks. As the diamonds moves, changes are formed, like waves, endlessly. These elements, which can constitute the foundation of infinite change, have been extended and applied in the whole project, making the project visually form a sea-related place.
The entrance to the project is a semi-open space surrounded by a square roof and a feature wall. We have designed a double-layer copper ring device here. Nearly 6000 pieces of copper are suspended on a circular frame with a diameter of 8m. The arrangement at intervals ensures the visibility and forms the unique visual language of the project.
As we walk around it, we can see the changing view of the double-layer copper sheet as it moves, such as waves churning and rushing. The sea breeze blows, the copper sheet rises in the wind and radiates light under the light and shadow. Sea Talker’s waves are blooming here as if they were a message from the sea.
The infinite circulation of the ring and the infinite combination of diamonds, as well as the change of light and shadow, make this installation show the infinite form of nature.
In the afternoon, the sunlight passed through the installation and formed the shadow of the project logo on the ground, where nature and art met beautifully.
The stone wall at the other end of the gallery has been transformed into a landscape node on this artistic line, with logo graphics engraved on the stone, such as waves striking the shore and entrance copper array, contrast finely with each other.
The setting of public art makes the theme of ” SeaTalkers” appear in the environment, where the language of the sea deduces the infinite creation of nature, geometric figures are infused with the soul of nature in the arrangement order, condensing the mysterious vitality of the sea and expressing a more profound nature.
Environmental Guidance System and Landscape Furniture
At the same time, SeaTalkers also play the role of guider in the project. The guide signs and landscape furniture all transmit the voice of SeaTalkers. The arrangement of the brand image shows a strong contrast between reality and imaginary, which constitutes a set principle of the site facilities. It shows the surging feeling and vitality of the brand by emphasizing the change of reality and imaginary of the facilities.
In a semi-enclosed manner, the left-empty area is penetrated at certain angles of the line of sight, making the guide setting vivid.
The lawn lamp that also constitutes the relation, the light that flows out from the aperture, spreads on the landscape path.
Smoking station in the connection of graphics, also become a visual system expression of a carrier.
The perforated strainer in the tree pool is distributed according to the logo pattern. The garbage bin that emphasizes the relationship between the actual situation and the imaginary situation, and the systematic consideration of various facilities in the park bring the park a comprehensive and complete theme feeling.
Entering the interior space, the overall atmosphere is more intensive and refined. the guide design has made material changes in line with the environment, and the polished metal and stone foundation surface complement each other.
The stone texture at the front desk is like waves rolling, the dot logo with mirror texture is like the rising sun, while when viewed from a nearby place, the design details with logo undulating and strewn are like setting the wave texture on the stone in the logo, abstracting and sublimating it into the spirit of the site, making the first scene into the interior space closely linked with the external space.
The basic graphic language has produced a strong combination ability. The auxiliary graphics and functional icons are changed through the combination of basic elements. The SeaTalkers turn into the point lights in the room, giving the room a free flowing temperament.
In this project, the stone design creates a visual system design including brand, guide, environmental furniture and public art, so that the concept of ” sea speaker” can be fully displayed, and facilities on the site can be displayed from point to line and from line to surface in a systematic and all-round way.
Since then, on the coast of Dalian, there is a SeaTalker – Global Mind Land, who will read the sea for every visitor and enjoy his life.
