材料
Structural glazing system, vision glass, translucent glass, metal panel

Located across from Chicago’s prominent Lincoln Park, the new Giordano Dance Chicago building consists of dance studios, retail space, and a rooftop terrace. The site, located at 1754 North Clark Street, contains a rich history within the community. Honoring the history and heritage of the site, bKL sought to create a modern and refined interaction between the existing church façade and the spirited program of Giordano Dance Chicago. Inspired in part by stained glass windows that adorn religious structures, the geometric exterior is a modern interpretation of such an artistic expression.

As America’s original jazz dance company, it was imperative to design a modern building that represents the magnitude of Giordano Dance Company’s place in the dance world yet honors the historical structure it is succeeding. The façade design creates a juxtaposition between the old and the new and caters to the materiality of the old brick and the new transparent glass form.

A grand, double-height entry welcomes visitors and invites passersby to explore the building’s transformative nature relating the church’s historic pitched roof form to its new modern glass enclosure.

总体规划的着眼点是人以及人在城市的密集区内如何与建筑、公共空间和交通互动。其意图是,在绿色景观、利于步行的通道和入口、以及核心区域内所有建筑间持久互利的运作这三者之间,精心打造一种平衡,并以此来启发城市环境中的人们。

bKL的规划思路从创建一个公共公园开始,该公园不仅是行人驻足的公共绿地,还是颇具魅力的商业旅游景点。一系列相互联系的公共空间为整个核心区的发展提供了开阔的架构。每一个公共空间和街景均以强烈的景观表现手法为特征,其与周边的用地形式和活动相结合,并在功能和视觉上被公园这一特征加以强调。

本规划将通过减少地面车辆和将主要交通车辆与停留车辆设计于地下得以实现。送货车辆与服务车辆将通过地下服务通道进入建筑。集中化地下停车场通过设有安检的出入口与地下人行通道相联接,并直接连入建筑的地下室。将创建一个“地下层”,以便于行人在免受其他因素干扰的情况下在场区内自由行动,与此同时行人也能在这一层面接触到自然光线。通道将对地下区域敞开,这又提供了聚会场所、咖啡馆和与景观互动的机会。在地面上,将为来往车辆建设林荫大道,而不是快速路。建设雨水花园和绿色街道,以在径流前改善水质,并减少排往市政下水道的排水量。

建筑将以最适当的朝向来呼应周边环境的自然因素。北向的高透明度将被利用起来,以充分利用自然光。通过正确合理的调整建筑朝向,大楼成为了自然光的反射镜,将自然光线反射到地下各层。

bKL was invited by the Chicago Architecture Foundation (CAF) to participate in its Between States exhibition as a part of the Chicago Architectural Biennial. Tasked with identifying an “unappreciated physical asset in one of Chicago’s 50 wards” and imagining “a process of transitioning it to an economic catalyst,” bKL selected the Damen Silos within Ward 25.

The Damen Silos are located just south of the vibrant Pilsen neighborhood. Situated at an intersection of waterway, freeway, and pedestrian connectivity, the site is waiting to be revitalized and utilized by the supporting community.

Pilsen’s artistic intervention influenced the bKL team. Inspired by local surface treatments, a series of applications and new place-defining markers activate the character and history of the site. Through site infrastructure improvement and direct access, this developing space will reinstate growth of new culture, reintroduce purpose to the Silos, and maintain their iconic image. In form, they remain the same; in purpose and surface, they change.

Featured in the CAF Atrium Gallery and presented as a partner program of the 2017 Chicago Architecture Biennial, the Between States exhibit will be open to the public September 19, 2017 to January 7, 2018.
