The Wujiang East Lake Tai Ecological Resort will become a place for Health, Carefree and Delight. The relationship to water is a major factor in the experience of the new waterfront. Nature and architecture are fusing into a hotspot for tourists and locals alike.
Landmarks: Towers as landmarks are contemporary interpretations of a traditional pagoda as a reference to history and a hommage to the future. Three conceptual themes express special relationships to plants and animals, to water and to light. Each tower offers spectacular viewing platforms on the waterfront and city. The tower will be constructed in steel with a metal mesh to create the ondulating surfaces. Projections, water features and plants on that mesh create different atmospheres. Sustainability and it´s relationship to nature are important aspects in the implementation of the landmarks.
Light Tower: The light tower changes it´s appearance from day to night. Reflections in the sun, glowing at night, projections and animations all make this tower a media event place for concerts and performances.
