Snøhetta + Local Studio 新作“木制拱门”,以纪念诺贝尔和平奖获得者

‘大主教的拱门’ 是一个相互交织的木拱廊,以纪念诺贝尔和平奖得主德斯蒙德•图图(Desmond Tutu)大主教。该拱廊在南非开普敦市中心的国会中心附近首次出现,图图在那里举行了多次反对种族隔离的抗议运动。

此设计由 Snøhetta 和南非第一大城市约翰内斯堡 (Johannesburg) 的地方设计工作室,与 Design IndabaHatch 工程公司共同合作。这个拱廊的拱由14根落叶松木材编制的木索组成, 代表南非宪法的14个章节。这座构筑物高达近30英尺 (9米),此设计邀请参观者从开放的结构里自由通过,并在前往公司花园 (Company's Garden)的路上提醒着他们,这个位置在他们国家的历史中扮演着重要的角色。自1652年成立以来,该公园是这座城市最受欢迎的公共场所之一。

The warmth of wood was intentionally selected to lend the Arch an intimate, tactile quality, that invites people to interact with the structure in a way that differs from the conventional materials people might expect for a memorial structure, such as concrete, steel, or stone.
