Parking Tower San Rendering

现代交通科技变革的日新月异决定了未来人类驾车、停车与车辆充能的模式。技术变革为设计行业带来了何种机遇?又将对未来沿途建筑产生何种影响?我们又应当如何看待未来新型车辆与城市间的关系呢?

此前,ennead受邀为上海新城市建设进行全新的电动车充能基站概念设计。基于上述课题,ennead lab 在进行可行性研究与深入探讨之后,构建出城市路边车辆充能基站这一想法。

与传统加油站不同,电动汽车充能对于车主来说耗时甚久。如今,电动汽车充能共有两种基准可选:超能及普通充能。超能充能通过备选线路与直接线路双管齐下进行充能,25分钟可满足约100英里行驶所需电量。超能充能办法较适合中途电能不足的情况。同等情况下,普通充能办法充满100英里所需电量则需约5小时。上述两种系统随在时间上有所差异,但却都面临着这样一个问题:车辆充能当下驾驶员能做什么?

为满足城市充能站小范围、城市化、慢行友好等基本需求并最大化单次充能车辆数量,ennead将现有充能技术与叠加停车技术相结合,创造了“充能大楼”这一概念。地面层轻量级檐蓬下将主要为超能充能站点。停车场顶层利用可反光穿孔金属材料,为人行步道提供了足量的日照光线。
