美国,艾森豪威尔纪念馆/盖里

去年,弗兰克.盖里赢得了艾森豪威尔纪念馆设计竞赛的第一名,6个对手包括:工务计划的其他公司Perkins & Will, Krueck & Sexton, Rogers Marvel事务所, Moshe Safdie & Associates, Natoma Architects and PWP景观。然后,评委会从中选出3个方案,最终方案在数天前选出。

 

 

《时代》杂志的“文化巨兽”栏目这样介绍:

盖里和同事将要在未来几个月向我们展示的新设计,结合了橡木树丛,两个平行石灰石柱的廊子和富于变化的石灰石墙,墙上有浮雕的遗迹:设计所有的元素有三个目的:钢铁网的织锦画展现了艾森豪威尔的图像和他的总统生涯。柱廊之间的钢铁网的织锦画是断开的,柱子是独立的,从美国国会大厦看来,可以形成一个开敞的构图框架,并成为一个非正式的步行入口。

橡树的树荫旁边是沉思的空间,钢铁网的织锦画使广场具有舞台的意味。盖里的钢铁网的织锦画的概念来自于他过去做过的费城艺术博物馆的挂毯收藏项目。

Last year Frank Gehry won the design competition for the Eisenhower Memorial, which included six other firms (Perkins & Will, Krueck & Sexton, Rogers Marvel Architects, Moshe Safdie & Associates, Natoma Architects and PWP Landscape Architecture). After that, the firm was asked to produce three options for the members of the Eisenhower Memorial Commision to choose from, from which the final design was chosen a few days ago.

LA Time’s Culture Monster has more info about the project:

The design, which Gehry and his colleagues will flesh out in the months to come, combines a grove of oak trees, two parallel colonnades of limestone pillars and loosely piled limestone walls carved with sculptural reliefs — elements common to all three proposals — with a series of woven steel-mesh tapestries that will feature images of Eisenhower and his presidency. There is a gap in the colonnade as it runs along Independence, creating an opening framing views of the Capitol and also marking an informal pedestrian entry into the memorial site.

 

While the oak trees should provide plenty of shade — along with pockets of contemplative space — the tapestries will give much of the memorial the feeling of an expansive outdoor stage set. Gehry came up with the idea for the steel-mesh panels while exploring the tapestry collection at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, where his firm has been working on an expansion.
