Get To Know The Contemporary Design of China’s Newest Hall – Next to the Great Wall of China, Suiseki Hall is the tourist attraction that you must incorporate in your to visit list of your trip to the country! Its contemporary design will catch your attention, I promise.
Located in the ancient city of Liuzhou, in the Chinese province of Guangxi, The Suiseki Hall is characterized by the peculiar contemporary design. In its project, the Zhanghua Architects where inspired by the dramatic topography of the city, carved by the Liujiang River. The volume of this architecture project is created by the negotiation between the angular rear face and the curving front face.
The contemporary building was idealized fundamentally as an amassment of serial sections. The translation between a linear profile and a curved profile results in a formally unusual landscape format, turning it into a true work of art.
As a perfect echo of the city two hills (considered a masterpiece of nature gods, by the city’s’ community), this architectural form was born with the right side folded and the left side curved. Each part is extruded vertically along the S shape, creating a movement sensation with some macroeconomic effects.

According to the architects, in a cultural point view, this project represents the mountain and flowing water, at the same time, like ‘yin’ and ‘yang’. “Two sides is a unity of opposites and can transform into each other between the two. The heavy part is earth, while the light part in heaven”, says the designers’ team. This thought represents that feeling that ancient people share about nature.
