Under the big roof, the Jinghu Central Square has become an important node of the extension of the city axis, which echoes with Jinghu Cultural Square, completing the urban composition of the core area of the emerging city. The pleasant streets and lanes with the characteristics of ancient water towns, the continuous waterfront interface, and the connected water network streets and lanes feel the water, banks, docks, lanes, and courtyards of the Jiangnan city. The third pavilion surrounds the mirrored shallow water square that opens to the central axis. The large roof is like an egret spreading its wings on the water, and it is also like an umbrella in the water village in the rain alley, providing shade and shelter for people.
