Daqing Educational & Cultural Center

A curved monolith emerging from the expansive land, this center comprised by the theatre, the museum and the library, is situated in the pivot site of the new developing district. All the three entrances of the buildings are prominent with transparent glass curtain wall and variable sun-shading grids, besides these, blind wall is widely used as adoption to the cold weather of the north-eastern area. Locations of windows on the wall are quite random, with anomalous shaped windows among them, looks just like cracks in the stones, this random variation has filled the building with charm of art.
