Lamborghini Exhibition Center, Zhengzhou China
兰博基尼作为全球最知名的顶级跑车制造商之一，秉承着挑战极限的企业文化和造车原则，孜孜不倦地追求着制造出完美跑车的梦想。兰博基尼在全球拥有上百家门店，但是却鲜有进行独立建筑设计的展示中心，中国郑州兰博基尼旗舰展示中心是兰博基尼继米兰、迪拜之后在世界范围内第三家独立建造的展示中心，由 PMA 设计事务所担任设计。
Lamborghini, one of the best known automobile manufacturers in the world for its super car, which works tirelessly pushing the envelope and evolving thecompany’s corporate culture, creating a series of dream sports vehicles.Lamborghini has over one hundred dealerships throughout the world, but only fee embodies a unique architectural design. Lamborghini exhibition centerin Zhengzhou China is Lamborghini’s third independent designed exhibition center globally, after Milano and Dubai, Designed by PMA (PolyMorphArchitects).
兰博基尼旗舰展示中心 Lamborghini exhibition center
The concept design of the Lamborghini exhibition center is inspired by Lamborghini’s classic vehicle type iteration; The building emphasizes a strong visual and spatial momentum created through the form, a strong, dynamic, twisting volume which is a result of use of 60 degrees angles which draw a strong relation to the surrounding site, creating a completely new type of architectural landmark.
设计草图 design sketch
Selection of the site is a departure from Lamborghini’s usual strategy, located in a city center location in a shop front which only offer limited options for how realization of the exhibition center space. Like an inverted triangle, the site for the new building is located near the airport highway at South Third Ring Road in the Zhengzhou New Zone adjacent to a 24-meter high existing building to the north with green park space located to the south, covering an area of less than 1000 m2. The biggest challenge of this project is how to mediate between these two conditions within limited space, combining the features of the site to create a building that can reflect Lamborghini’s corporate spirit and creating a truly exceptional design that is convincing to Lamborghini’s headquarter in Milan.

“极具辨识度的比例、清晰的轮廓、精准的线条和光洁的表面，是兰博基尼设计 DNA 的基本要素。
“Determined proportions, clear contours, precise lines and pure surfaces are DNAcharacteristics of Lamborghini’s design reduced to its very essence.
——Lamborghini Centro Stile”
The design starts with drawing inspiration from Lamborghini supercars’ powerful lines and dynamic angles. This logic is super imposed over the site, making use of parallelograms and triangles as a base language and expanding from there responding to the site. The entire building is surrounded by a continuously revolving facade. From inside, visitors can engage in a type of spatial dialogue with the exterior environment through the windows unique design and spatial characteristics of the windows. Walking inside the building has the same allure or driving a special “super car”, while maintaining a spatial relationship between indoors and outdoors views. In order to eliminate the pressure of building volume, thedesign does not seek to conflict with the surrounding areas through use of continuous floor plates, but instead creates a visual corridor through the building form the north by use of a programmatic twist between the two floors, creating an elegant presence to new visitors.

“我们的设计体现了兰博基尼超高的超控性带来的场地感知特性，建筑形态与场地的紧密切合，连续的表皮开窗最大程度地建立了建筑与环境、室内与室外之间的交织，形成了一个仅适合于这个特定场地与特定主题的拥有独一无二 DNA 的建筑，这个设计体现了我们一贯的设计原则，也顺利地一次性通过了业主董事会议。”PMA 设计事务所创始人及主持设计师王川先生说。
“Our design represents the sensation of the site brought by Lamborghini’s handling performance. The architecture conforms to the site, creating continuous surface and integration of windows, establishing an interweaving between the building and surrounding site.The building expresses a unique DNA that is special to this site and culture of Lamborghini. This design embodies our consistent design principles and was approved by Lamborghini in the first meeting”, said Mr. Wang Chuan, founder and principle designer of PMA.
建筑外观局部 Partial exterior view of the building
建筑包含四个主要功能空间：新车展示区及保养维修区， VIP 休息区和管理办公区。建筑从正面看去立面向后倾斜，将来访者引导到建筑前广场，两个平面体块的内凹转折形成入口缓冲区和大门。新车展示空间通过斜向的落地玻璃幕墙强化标识性，倾斜的立柱在室内形成更有张力的动态展示空间。保养维修区巧妙的使用流线的转折，将服务入口隐藏在建筑西侧，并通过二层悬挑创造了功能性遮蔽。
The building includes four main functional spaces: new car exhibition area, services and maintenance area, VIP Lounge and management office. From the front view, the facade of the building inclines backward, inviting visitors to the public plaza in front of the building. Two concave twisted volumes form the buffer zone and main entrance. The new car exhibition area is strengthened by the full-length tilted glass wall. Inside the building, inclined columns add a tension to adynamic spatial experience. The subtle streamlined twist in service and maintenance area hides the entrance on the west side of the building, using the cantilevered second floor to create a functional cover.

室内由连续转折三角面包裹的室内楼梯将来访者引领通往二层 VIP 休息区，二层室内延续了楼梯设计语言，由三角形转折面组成的室内墙面兼具了装饰性和吧台收纳功能。在二层末端的是管理人员办公区，连续表皮在此处的转换为办公空间提供了足够的采光以及良好的视野，将视线引向附近的开阔空间和绿地。同时，由体块错动而创造出的二层室外平台为为来访者提供可以一览周边景观的观景平台，也为新车发布和品车酒会等活动提供了扩展的可能性。
The interior part features a staircase which wraps and follows the twisted triangulated geometry of the building massing, leading visitors to VIP Lounge on the second floor. This is also emphasized as well in the bar area. At the end of the second floor is the office for management staff. Here, the transforming of continue facade provides abundant day lighting to the office space, and also good views to the surrounding site. The platform outside second floor created through shifting blocks also provides visitors a platform to see the surrounding site at a glance, as well as serves as a potential new area for exhibitions and events.

The design gives full consideration to the spaces required for an exhibition hall and respects the client’s culture as a key driver of the project. The entire space is activated by a design with continuous horizontal striation scoupled with vertical twists. The external shape is defined by interior massing and flow of people. The unique facade brings out a bold visual experience. A simple but dynamic design leads visitors to explore and experience spatial uniqueness in this gigantic space of a “Supercar”.
