Remember the touching journey,
当代九开置业 x 山水比德
Benchmarking work of ΜΟΜΛ & S.P.I--Mount Jiuhua Lianhua Townlet you know Zen's differenceby deeply experience Zen in life.
不知道你有没有这样一种感受，当下的旅行，多为行色匆匆。未见日升月落，不晓禅钟几鸣，走马观花式的记忆片段，或不出数日便已模糊。我们希望，有一个地方，能够让人停留，细腻地感受生活，把节奏慢下来，探寻心中的禅境。Trips in nowadays are usually rushed, without sun rising and bell ringing, such rough frames can be forgotten in a short time. We are seeking for a place where people would slow down to stay and feel deeply that they can find the Zen space of their own.
我们提出，以“故事”为引子，创造六大沉浸式体验，通过禅意景观讲述九华山禅文化，以一个个小小典故设计场景，让人们在不经意中寻到禅，在日常生活中悟出禅机。We propose to create a complete story with six sunken experience by telling the Zen culture of Mount Jiuhua. A series of scenarios incidentally convey the meaning of Zen in the daily life.
本项目位于安徽池州九华山风景区，规划总面积为40公顷，定位为世界级禅意旅居小镇，为大愿文化园旅游服务配套。旨在从旅游体验方面进行深化与升级，形成融合居住、商业、禅文化深度体验的一体化旅游小镇，达成互补经济效益，打造为地藏佛禅文化小镇IP。The 40-hectare project which is orientated as a world class Buddhist tourist town, is working as a matching facility for Dayuan Culture & Tourism services, located in Anhui Jiuhua tourist site. In order to upgrade travelling experience and establish unique branding of Buddhist Zen culture, the projectis blended with both residential and commercial use to have complementary economic benefits.
项目于2017年11月正式启动设计，历时近2年，18000㎡展示区对外开放，所谓“慢工出细活”，历经多次优化调整，惋惜部分重点设计因客观因素被拆除，感谢甲方团队给予充分的创作空间，提出高品质、高规格的要求，设计团队全天候配合，最终呈现备受认可的落地成果。The project formally started from November 2017, and the 18000-squaremeter exhibition area was opened to the outside in the recent two years. The whole scheme has been edited for many times as some of fine details have to be removed due to the policies. While the final outcome is highly approved andpraised because of the consummate collaboration between design team and client's supporting.
本次规划的莲花小镇是展示九华山、弘扬禅文化的窗口。因此，作为呈现整个项目的气质的展示区，概念定位为“大珠小珠落玉盘，一花一树一菩提”，取“莲”之形与意，造形境、意境赋予项目灵魂。It is a good opportunity to advertise the Buddhist culture of Mount Jiuhua by the project of Lianhua Town. To highlight project temperament, as a result, the design concept is defined as ‘linfa sounds like beads dropping, a single blossom comes a tree and a bodhi’ , providing project the soul and form of lotus.

项目一步一景，皆可溯源，层层递进扣人心弦。形成“顿禅·寻禅·悟禅·看见禅”四大空间体验，营造多维立体体验空间，实现空间的创新。Each frame of this project has its own story with appealing progress, shaping four multidimensional spaces of Zen'knowing, seeking, understanding and seeing' to achieve a spatial innovation.
进入场地，九华山99峰的画面延绵震撼，一如诗人李白所言“昔在九江上，遥望九华峰。天河挂绿水，秀出九芙蓉。”而作为佛教圣地象征的地藏菩萨露天铜像，在群山的映照下，迎着阳光闪耀着神圣的光芒。见山的此刻，游人便进入“顿禅”之境。The shocking scenes of Jiuhua 99 peaks you can feel as described by thepoet Libai ‘I look at Mount Jiuhua from distance while boating on Changjiang River, waterfall seems to be dropping from the galaxy, and the peaks are thesame as nine lotuses.’ The Ksitigarbha sculpture shining divinely undersunlight, here comes the realm of ‘Zen knowing’ once enter the mountain.
万物皆有禅，世间一切皆为“化相”。莲花是禅文化的象征符号，设计师从莲瓣悟出全新的山门形式，创新的形体以莲瓣化作山门，通过叠层与围合形成，莲生丛绿，呈现山门的浓郁绿意。人行其中，进入禅意世界，开与合的空间演化，讲述当代禅生活“故事”。Zen exists everywhere, world's shapes and forms depend on human mood. Lotus is the symbol of Buddhist culture that inspires designer a brand-new form of gate which is made up by layered 'lotus petals' and covered by green, presenting its natural property. Walking around, modern life is delivered via the Buddhist land with gradually varied spaces.
The Lotus Pavilion, growing in the nature, standing nearby is a kind of self-inspect in the mortal life by landscape tasting, nature listening and sutra reading.
前场通过一个一个圆的关联，营造“大珠小珠落玉盘”的画面，区域内种植祈福树、水中菩提、镜面水景、莲瓣叠水等一系列圆形场景，呈现极致纯粹的禅意体验。A sense of 'linfa sounds like beads dropping' is created by a series of circles in the front yard where diverse Buddhist scenarios can be purely experienced, such as blessing trees, underwater bodhi, mirrored water and lotus-like cascades.
结合灯光，水上圆形汀步形成步步生莲场景，下沉水中曲径与圆汀步通往圆形水中禅庭、水下禅庭（水月洞天），再由水上浮桥连接接待区，营造体验丰富的寻禅之路。Combined with lamplight, the circular water paving makes the sense of ‘subliming with lotus growing’. The sunken water meandering with circular pavings links tothe rounded Buddha yards in and under water, building an exciting zen seeking process with connection between floating bridge and the reception.

空间的连接，带来探寻自然秘境的趣味，水月洞天，6米直径寓意六道轮回，24级阶梯代表24节气，行进之中是对内在的探索，对物外世界的感悟，自然之源，生生不息，构筑物与自然环境的天然合一。Spatial connection provides the interests of exploring in the nature: Buddhist cavern with diameter in 6 meters means 6 samsaras, and 24 steps stand for 24 calendaricities. It is the comprehensive experience of both intrinsic discovery and external feelings during the proceed, as the constructions and natural origins are fully gathered in a cyclic way.
Sitting relaxedly, Buddhist mood is given by the characteristic space with clear waterand chaste lotus.
Within the inner yard is the Buddhist tea house, in which there are underwater petals, floating Zen island and mirrored lotus pool, enlightened to see the Buddha.Spirit gets touched with the ambient movement driven by dynamic breeze and pure water that mind can be opened to feel Buddhist mood.
在活动体验上，设计团队策划一系列禅行、禅修、禅境的活动融入景观动线，打造“祈福-诵经-早课-撞钟-晚课-放灯”六大活动贯穿启动区功能布局，打造沉浸式地藏文化体验，让人成为场所的灵魂，提升整个场所的魅力。A range of Buddhist activities of padipata and enlightenment are skillfully putinto the landscape axis to construct the functional layout with six activity modules of 'praying, chanting, matin, belling, evensong and lantern hanging'.The immersive experience of Ksitigarbha culture makes users to be site soul, developing the site charm.
夜游经济，是旅游体验的一种重要路径，而丰富多彩的夜游体验，才是夜游经济得以蓬勃发展的关键，灯光，更是夜游体验的主打产品。Noctivagation economy plays an important role in tourism. While colourful sense judgement makes noctivagation economy improved by effective methods, such as lamplight.
通过采用高科技照明手段，对景观或建筑做艺术化、互动式灯光处理，在展示区形成一个让游客参与其中，具有独特灯光体验的时空环境。灯光创新带来的行进式沉浸，呈现“不一样的禅”的夜游景观。With the help of high-tech lighting systems, landscapes and architectures in the exhibition area can be artified within an interactive lighted environment, allowing visitors to participate in the unusual time andspace trip. Different meaning of Zen is being presented by the noctivagation with lighting innovation.
Work experience in Buddhist shrine
设计团队介绍，每一天进入场地，地藏菩萨都在看着，每一位设计师在工作中都心怀虔诚，走进场地会向菩萨方向膜拜，这是场地所具有的精神，也是设计师对场地的领悟，对场地的尊重。希望进入莲花小镇的游客能够享受这里的好山好水，静心领悟一份宁静的心禅。It is a kind of comprehension and respect to the site, every time step into thesite, also under the stare from Ksitigarbha, that is the reason why eachdesigner becomes religious and reverent during the time. At the moment, designing is also worship, as well as the spirit only belongs here. It is a cherished wish that the special Buddhist mood can be truly understood by experiencing the inviting landscape design and majestic natural mountain scenes.Higher innovation, better Jiuhua
九华山作为区域文化母体，莲花小镇是对九华山的融合与提升，达成丰富与强化的效应，为九华山带来更具深度的旅游居住体验，达成彼此成就的效果。我们认为，现在，是九华山成就了莲花小镇，但是在未来，我们希望莲花小镇可以成就更好的九华山。The Lianhua Town is subliming and merging together with Mount Jiuhua which is the carrier of local culture. It brings impressive and deep experience on tourism and residence with strengthened domino effect. Mount Jiuhua and the project will definitely mutualize in a sustainable way from now on.

A new residential synthesis combined with leisure, holidaying, rehabilitation and commercial was built.
九华山莲花小镇，作为山水比德本年度落地的标杆性文旅项目，进一步充实了“地产”“文旅”两大板块齐绽放的布局，从空间创新、体验创新等多个维度，践行“依托现有山水脉络等独特风光，让城市融入大自然；让居民望得见山、看得见水、记得住乡愁”的家国理想，创新未来更加诗意的营造。Mount Jiuhua Lianhua Town is regarded as the S.P.I benchmarking project that landed this year, boosting up the two big modules of 'real estate' and 'cultural & creative tourism' from various dimensions on spatial innovation, experience innovation, etc. Rely on the creative poetic dwelling design, cities can be blended intothe nature depending on existing landscape context which is visible, audibleand rememberable.
