Qingpu Liantang Hotel Project

Liantang, China 2014


Our design celebrates the natural beauty of Liantang, famous for its waterways, which have been used as a mode of transportation for centuries. The organization of the site and program through the use of the loop road creates a cinematic effect. A series of picturesque views are created with the harmonious marriage of architecture and landscape. The active sequences of spaces along the vehicular path was inspired by images of the Chinese water dragon. The site is intended to become a destination resort hotel along the canal edge, located in the heart of the conservation forest preserve of Liantang. The entire project is positioned to develop from the largest building on the site, which is designed to look like a series of smaller buildings gathered together like a village in the landscape.
