Abstract: Aluminum alloys have excellent surface performance and good plasticity. Aluminum surfaces can be created to mirror effects comparable to mirrors, or they can be created in a variety of colors and unique textures through anode oxidation and coloring processes, as well as complex surfaces.
Aluminum alloys have excellent surface performance and good plasticity. Aluminum surfaces can be created to mirror effects comparable to mirrors, or they can be created in a variety of colors and unique textures through anode oxidation and coloring processes, as well as complex surfaces. Because of this characteristic, more architects, designers, artists choose aluminum alloy for the construction of curtain wall, installation design, packaging design, home design and other fields.
Here are a few typical examples of how architects and designers can design a better world with aluminum.
1. Vienna Steirereck restaurant design with aluminum mirror
Vienna's Steirereck, one of the world's top 50 restaurants, was opened in 2005 by Heinz Reitbauer, a member of his family, and then re-opened in 2012 to demand more creative new designs. At the time, the Vienna architectural design firm PPAG won the bid for its innovative and perfect solution. The project's new dining platform is encased in highly reflective mirrored aluminum panels and extends the existing building to the park, with a huge opening to the outdoors, allowing the surrounding park's green landscape and sunlight to enter the interior.

2. Mirror aluminum alloy to achieve Austrian invisible residential architectural design
The image below shows the invisible residential unit designed by Delugan Meissl Associate s. Stealth Residential is a modular prefabricated residential unit that can be easily installed and built anywhere. The residential unit is completely made of prefabricated elements of the factory and is 14.50 x 3.50 m in size, which is suitable for trucking. The home can be completely disassembled to reduce environmental impact. Designers through the mirror aluminum alloy to achieve the "stealth" of the building.
3. Haikou Wuyuanhe Stadium Architectural Design
The Wuyuanhe Stadium in Haikou City, designed by Von Gercon and Mag's GMP Architects, was successfully awarded in 2013 and completed and delivered on schedule by the end of April 2018. Hainan's unique tropical climate and geographical conditions, as well as Haikou's urban structure, have put forward unusual requirements for the shape of the stadium. In order to protect the original ecological landscape, connect the connection, the design adopted the strategy of dissolving the architectural scale, the balanced integration of the building body extends to the northeast side of the sea landscape. In order to make the mass soothing as possible, the stadium cleverly borrows diagonal lying steps to bring the surrounding crowds into the core area. The surface of the building's breathable curtain wall is covered with silver-white anode oxide aluminum alloy leaves, which can not only shade the rain, but also introduce fresh air, so that the audience in haikou's strong sunshine, sultry environment can still enjoy a very high viewing comfort.
4. Aluminium tube wall of Hong Kong Opera Centre
Designed by Revery Architecture, the Hong Kong Opera Centre will be completed in 2018. The dramatic curved facade and reinterpreted shape of the Chinese Moon Gate at the center of the opera symbolize the entrance to Hong Kong's new cultural and artistic district, the West Kowloon Cultural and Arts District.
On the gleaming facade, the streamlined pattern reinterprets the theatre's curtain and the hem of a gorgeous costume, and the modular system of seafaring aluminum tubes cut by CNC gives the building high performance and eye-catching appearance. These staggered, scaly surfaces give off a charming glow that makes the building look like a lantern flashing behind a beaded curtain. The good plasticity and excellent surface performance of the aluminum alloy enable the designer's idea to be realized.
5. The aluminum alloy double curtain wall of the National Oceanic Museum
The National Maritime Museum is located in the coastal tourism area of Zhongxin Eco-city in Tianjin, covering an area of more than 30,000 square meters and a construction area of 80,000 square meters. The two-surface exterior of the building embodies the design elements of the ocean, and the entire architectural design uses a clever metaphor, both like the fish that will jump into the sea, and the dragon body that rises and turns.
Such a complex bisurface appearance must be achieved through the outer eaves wall. The national maritime museum outside the eaves of the double-curvecurtain wall roof most of the use of vertical lock edge aluminum magnesium manganese metal plate as the main enclosure structure, covered with 3 mm thick diamond-shaped aluminum alloy plate as a decorative plate, the color is ivory white, an area of 60,000 square meters, the overall view is like layers, staggered fish scales in general.
