Fu Xiu: A Communal Facilities Design by Jiebin Lai

Introducing a Unique Blend of Tradition and Modernity

The Fu Xiu design by Jiebin Lai draws inspiration from the graceful movements of oriental classical dances and operas. With its rippling shape reminiscent of fluttering sleeves, this design captures the ethereal nature of these performances, creating a picturesque artistic conception that celebrates the love for human life and nature.

The Fu Xiu design stands out with its emphasis on "spirit" and "charm" through the use of lines. It seamlessly integrates tradition and modernity, offering new design ideas for modern public facilities while maintaining cultural attributes. The play of light and shadow adds dynamism to the shape, evoking emotional resonance with the viewers.

Constructed using stainless steel and artificial turf, the Fu Xiu design boasts a length of 19m, width of 7m, and height of 2.9m. Its curved form showcases minimalism and elegance, making it a captivating addition to any urban setting.

One of the standout features of the Fu Xiu design is its intelligent operating system. Equipped with a guide map of the area and real-time bus information, this smart station provides convenience to commuters. Additionally, the design includes mobile wireless charging seats and a shared bicycle system, promoting sustainable transportation options.

The Fu Xiu design is a collaborative effort by Jiebin Lai, Shu Qianyun, Wang Tingting, Mu Yiwei, Lan Chunge, and Zhao Fuqin. Their meticulous research on the use of curves in design has resulted in a harmonious balance between static and dynamic elements. By freezing the dynamic lines in a static instant, the design conveys complex emotional connotations, derived from the accumulation of life experiences. The dynamic curves serve as a means of expression for the creators' emotions, while the emotions themselves provide inspiration for their creativity.

Expected to be completed in September 2022, the Fu Xiu design exemplifies the fusion of art, architecture, and technology. Its unique form and thoughtful integration of functionality make it a deserving recipient of the Bronze A' Design Award in the Street and City Furniture Design category in 2023. This prestigious accolade recognizes designs that showcase outstanding creativity, resourcefulness, and a commitment to improving quality of life.

With the Fu Xiu design, Jiebin Lai has successfully created a visually striking and emotionally resonant communal facility that adds an aesthetic touch to urban environments while catering to the needs of the community.
