A tribute to Александр Сергеевич Пушкин –a poem propounded by architecture. The name of poem “The power of inspiration” Description of the poem: (1) “Freedom” Against gravity by floating steam Gravity is one of the great obstacles to artistic design of architectural structure, thus there has been deep desire to construct the architecture without giving sense of gravity. In order to present freedom of architecture, the mist floating in the air performs as a new type of materials for the façade. (2) “The warm Sun on the snow” The architectural form is originated from an image of sun.

Snow country has thirsts for basking in pleasant sunshine, just like the world of poetry need Александр Сергеевич Пушкин to provide and expand its spirit. (3) The inspiration of color – a symbol of warm temperature The architectural façade is able to change the color with temperature. Generally, the façade color is red during the summer. When the temperature drops, the color turns to black.

Moreover, heating systems and pipes are imported in the structure of the new façade to spout steam. And then, the color turns to scarlet due to the increase in the temperature of the façade and around the building. The color and steam give people sense of warmth. 2.

Three level Facades (1)The first layer- architectural form The new façade starts a primitive geometry with a reflective of materiality. And then, the façade is cut by fire curves and creating the pattern of architectural form. (2)The second layer- thermochromic façade The stainless with Performance Coating on the façade is able to echo the color when temperature change. (3)The third layer- steam The steam floats around the cinema hall to represent a new type of façade.
