迪拜,迪拜购物中心苹果店巨型“太阳能翼”艺术装置 / foster +partners

新的苹果店位于迪拜购物中心,每年吸引超过8000万游客前来购物,它跨越两层楼,并配有名为“太阳能翅膀”的动力艺术品。该建筑重新诠释了传统的阿拉伯建筑语汇——窗花,它在白天轻轻地遮蔽外部露台,晚上开放,让人欣赏到滨水长廊的景色。Foster +partners构思为“戏剧体验”,设计师精心设计的18个面板灵感来自于猎鹰展翅的运动路径。

每个翅膀全都由轻质的碳纤维制成,拥有多层管形成的密集的网。“经过对太阳角度的深入研究,拉杆被更多地布置在一年中阳光辐射最集中的地方,”Foster +partners解释说。“独特的花纹让人无论站在商店的上下哪一层中,都可以清晰地看到户外的景色;阳光透过翅膀投下斑驳的阴影,一直洒向室内深处。”

新遮阴阳台摆放有九个栽有大树的大花盆,这里成为了游客栖坐和放松的座椅区。花盆通过机械自动旋转,保证树木能照射到更多阳光。商店的开业恰逢苹果全新的全球店内体验——的推出,这为有经验的团队提供关于拍照、摄影、艺术与设计及更多领域的个人意见与培训。

“迪拜购物中心苹果店的设计为游客创造出独特的建筑和社交体验,为苹果旗舰店在社区中不断演变的角色提出新的想法,”foster +partners的工作室主管stefan behling说。“这些宏伟的太阳翼的开启和关闭类似于一个精致的芭蕾独奏会——但其规模宏大。在某种程度上,它是一种非常灵性的体验,太阳通过它们,创造出最精致、最美丽的明暗图案——一种技术和文化的无缝融合。”

“我们把商店看作是现代的城市广场,游客来这里购物,受到启发,在社区中学习或与他人交流,”苹果的零售商高级副总裁Angela Ahrendts补充说。“还有什么地方比俯瞰迪拜的中心——迪拜的喷泉、哈里发塔和迪拜购物中心交汇处更容易让人汇集在一起。我们非常荣幸能在一个世界上最令人难以置信和动态的交叉点之间拥有一个家。”


located in the dubai mall — a destination that attracts more than 80 million visitors a year — the new apple store spans two floors, and is clad with a kinetic art piece named ‘solar wings’. reinterpreting the traditional arabic mashrabiya, the installation gently shades the external terrace during the day, before opening in the evening to take in views of the waterside promenade. conceived by foster+ partners as a ‘theatrical experience’, the 18 carefully engineered panels are inspired by the motion of a falcon spreading its wings.each wing is made entirely from lightweight carbon fiber, with multiple layers of tubes forming a dense net. _‘following an in-depth study of sun angles, the rods have been distributed in higher concentration where the solar radiation is the most intense over the year,’_ explains foster + partners. _‘the unique pattern allows clear views out for people standing on both levels of the store, and the sunlight streaming through the wings casts dappled shadows deep into the interior.’_the shaded terrace features nine trees set within planters, with seating also provided for visitors to sit and relax. to ensure that the trees receive even sunlight, the planters rotate mechanically. the opening of the store coincided with the announcement of the tech giant’s new in-store experience. ‘today at apple’ sees trained team members offer individual advice on photography, filmmaking, art, design, and more._‘the design of apple dubai mall is about creating an exceptional

architectural and social experience for visitors, bringing to the fore new

ideas about the evolving role of apple flagships in the community,’_ said

stefan behling, head of studio, foster + partners._ ‘the opening

and closing of these majestic solar wings is analogous to a delicate ballet

recital — but on a monumental scale. in some ways it is a very spiritual

experience, with the sun streaming through them and creating the most delicate

and beautiful patterns of light and shade – a seamless blend of technology and

culture.’__‘we view our stores as a modern-day town square, where visitors come to

shop, be inspired, learn or connect with others in their community,’_ added

angela ahrendts, apple’s senior vice president, retail. _‘and what

better place to come together than overlooking dubai’s epicenter, where the

dubai fountain, burj khalifa and dubai mall meet. we are so honored to have a

home at one of the world’s most incredible and dynamic intersections.’_
