Starting Point of Design
How to deal with the relationship between the architecture and the site becomes the starting point of the initial design. The South Third Ring Road adjacent to the site is an urban expressway in Xi'an with heavy traffic. In the face of such a traffic pulse, the architect preset such a scene. The building is like a glass exhibit which is held in the air, forming a unique visual sign beside the urban road. The activities in the exhibition hall also become part of the exhibition, attracting people to enter the site and to feel the narrative of design. Then browsing itself also becomes part of the show.

In fact, the frequent interaction between the exhibition hall and art has already taken place. Not long ago, Qujiang Art Center witnessed the opening and closing of Picasso's silver works exhibition.

The process of arriving at the site is not a straightforward one, but a process of falling, turning, surprise and suddenly opening up, which seems to coincide with human's emotional experience. The whole building is anchored on the site. The site and the building are integrated with the bottom hidden in the green slope.

Facing the height difference between the site and the 10 meter green belt of the road, how shall people reach the site? The landscape design gives a poetic answer. The gentle slope of the urban green belt is built into a silk belt trail, so that the sense of slope "disappears" in the swing of the trail, leading the walk in. The walk experience becomes a way of dialogue with the site, and also a more close interaction between the site and the city.
