Austria-based firm Hans Hollein has finished the design for the Meixihu Lake International Culture and Arts Center in Changsha, China, designboom reports. The project, which will be built on the shore of the city’s Meixihu Lake, may become one of the world's largest cultural centers.
The center’s main elements will consist of a mall, hotel, exhibition, apartment complex and theater, centered around tall buildings with elaborate multi-angle designs.
“Local traditional materials are combined with contemporary technology and strategies to create a range of dynamic spaces, reflective surfaces, irregular massive spaces and new methods of communication make it amongst the largest in the world,” the architects wrote in the project description.
