Wutopia Lab受上海东方艺术中心委托联手大界机器人在其中央公共大厅完成了一个名为Red Lala Land的玻璃纤维艺术装置。

Invited by Shanghai Oriental Art Center, Wutopia Lab recently finished a glass-fiber installation called Red LaLa Land in the central lobby of the Art Center together with Roboticplus.

简单的想法总要面对现实的挑战Simple idea will always be challenged by the reality

著名建筑师安德鲁设计的上海东方艺术中心已经落成10年,它是上海最具影响力的音乐戏剧表演艺术中心之一,不同的表演厅为市民提供具有世界水平的交响乐,舞蹈和戏剧演出。不过当我站在中央大厅时就明白了业主的心思。现状的中央大厅其实就是个交通过厅,没有起到聚集人流的作用,加之中央大厅在尺度和色调上有些冷漠,让人无法驻足。

Shanghai Oriental Art Center, designed by Paul Andrew, is still one of the most influential musical performance centers in Shanghai, continues to provide world-class musical performances 10 years after its completion. The current issue of the central lobby is that it does not function well to gather patrons for its unfriendly scale and cold color tone.

所以我的想法很简单,创造一个近人尺度可以进入的红色空间,这样可以改变空间的体验。不过东方艺术中心要求安装装置不能在现有的装饰面上做任何破坏,要在7月演出季前完成,必须在指定时间内施工,同时满足消防的要求,还不能太贵。

So, the idea is simple that an accessible warm red space with a human-friendly scale used to change the spatial experience needs to be created in the lobby. The client asked that the add-on design cannot break the existed original decorations, it needs to be finished before the performance season starts on July, the construction has to be done during designated time and meets the fire code at the same time with a relatively low budget.

我希望这个装置是轻的,预制的,便于安装的。于是我想到了合作过的大界。经过讨论,我们认为Red LaLa Land需要回应上海东方艺术中心的音乐表演,将声波数字化,并转化为优美的几何形态,三种不同的声波在空间中此起彼落,如同交响乐中不同乐器的演奏,同时亦有合声,声波重合后形成了可以进入装置的开口。这些声波相互高低起伏,塑造出高低连绵交织的一个界面。界面呈现连续的环形,为中央大厅创造了一个小尺度的围合空间,那就是Red LaLa Land。

The installation is expected to be lightweight, pre-fab, easy to install. After a discussion with Roboticplus, a digital fabrication company, the installation Red LaLa Land will be using the form of the digitalized soundwave with up-and-down form, which is a perfect response to the musical performance happened in the art center. The undulated wavy form provides intersections that creates boundaries and openings at the same time.

整个装置由玻璃纤维复合材构成,色调以渐变红色为主,由下往上从浅红到深红,创造出空间的温暖感,也仿佛灵感的火焰。最后这个装置直径八米,最高高度达到3.4米,采用形式结构一体化的设计,分成了16组纤维模块,而总重量仅为240公斤。装置采用了机器人数字化建造技术来完成。

The installation is made of glass-fiber composite material, which has a red gradient color tone with light red on the top to the dark red on the bottom, creating an effect of warm fire. Uni-body design is used on the structural part with a diameter of 8 meters and maximum height of 3.4 meters and it is broken into 16 modular glass-fiber components with a total weight of 240 KG.

大界机器人率先引入欧洲最先进的机器人纤维编织建造技术,并进行研发改进创造新的专利技术。数卷玻璃纤维丝在纱架上汇聚成一束,通过定制调色环氧树脂形成玻璃纤维复合材料,并由机器人自主识别几何形态,生成编织的运动路径规划。本装置的各组纤维模块形态迥异,大界通过智能的优化算法,通过三组木模具的自由组合实现了声波装置形态的千变万化。

Roboticplus just introduced the most advanced robotic fiber fabrication technology from Europe with its own building solution that glass fibers are weaved into one and combined with epoxy resin to make a composite bundle then being weaved again along the path created by the calculated form. The modular form of this installation is varied on different parts and it is successfully done after applying an optimized robotic algorithm with a combination of 3 wooden molds.

技术呼应艺术Tech and art

机器人花了70个小时完成了工作。大界的小伙子们用6个小时完成了安装,没有一点伤害原来的装饰。这红色的灵感轻轻地落在厚重的大厅中,闪耀光辉。

The work took 70 hours to finished by the robotics and 6 hours for the hands-on installation without a single damage to the decoration on the site. The Red LaLa Land now landed on the central lobby hall.

红色律动Red Vibe

7月11日,上海东方艺术中心2019年演出季开幕,而进入大厅的观众慢慢走上巨大的台阶时就能看见一团红色的变化着的装置,仿佛音乐的律动而由衷共鸣。这是我作为上海人送给爱艺术的人们一件小礼物。

On July 11th, the day when the 2019 performance seasons starts, people will see a vibrant red installation dancing with the rhythm of music, a little gift from Wutopia Lab to all art lovers in Shanghai.
