Ice Cubes

The Xinxiang Cultural Tourism Center stands out as a distinctive architectural landmark in the newly developed tourism district, which boasts an array of winter sports facilities, including a forthcoming indoor ski slope. With its exceptional amenities and commercial offerings, the district is poised to attract a large number of visitors from the city and surrounding regions.

The project aims to create a powerful urban icon that unifies the entire district. Unlike traditional buildings, the Cultural Tourism Center is a sculptural form that defies conventional notions of floor count and scale. It presents a pure, monumental volume that exudes a sense of grandeur and awe-inspiring beauty.
