Daxing Cultural Center

This project is a complex housing cultural center, library, book store, auditorium and theater. The sunken plaza and the sloped landscape not only create a three-dimensional entrance to the cultural center, but also merge the building into urban context, providing citizens a public activity space for leisure and performances. The cultural center wrap around a terraced three-dimensional landscaped roof garden, and the library is vertically linked together by a huge symbolic “bookcase’. Following the continuous ramps around it, one can arrive at every reading room of each floor.
