XiXian New Area Chongwen Jing River Eco-Restaurant and Hotel/ Plasma Studio+PMA (PolyMorphArchitects)
Xi'an Eco-Park is part of the ecological park located in the Chongwen Jing River region of Xixian New Area.

Accompanied by its own vegetable and fruit planting park as well as butterfly greenhouse, the restaurant has the same concept orientation as the whole park, focusing on ecological simple meals and emphasizing the production and processing of Xi'an's local ingredients. The experience offered to dinners includes picking their own vegetables and following its cooking process. In addition to the dining experience, the project proposes some auxiliary activities such as a ch
