Like the bow of a ship, the Cultural Tourism City Demonstration Center marks the access of a brand new residential development area that will be built alongside the canal. It is conceived to be a city landmark.
We provide a strong signal for the Cultural Tourism City. Its 49-meter-high body is visible from all directions possible.
We provide an urban lighthouse for the Cultural Tourism City. Its "air hall" dominates the urban space and attracts people to it, and its translucent outer wall can absorb and diffuse light.
We provide a spatial response for the ski resort. The ski resort is located on the southwest side of the lake and connected by the pedestrian street on the north side. The tension of distance strengthens the dialogue and interaction between buildings.
We're in the pursuit to establish a new symbol for the city, which is composed of intertwined glass cubes, which reminds people of the joy of ice and snow, sunlight and winter sports, as if the lake became ice, condensing into a poetic architectural movement.
