A new grand urban development unfolds around Meixi Lake incorporating a carefully conceived mix of functions. In a prime position the Meixi Lake Culture & Arts Center is located, overlooking the lake and the festival island. The theater and an art gallery are conceived as individual buildings each, yet they form a sculptural unity within the townscape. A shopping mall supports the Culture and Art Center enforcing its architectural standing together with high–rise buildings for hotels and apartments. The design creates a visual connection and a relationship between the cultural and commercial zone and makes the project a world class known Landmark.
