Kunming, known as the "Spring City", enjoys pleasant climate and sits on Dianchi Lake - the largest plateau lake in Yunnan province. The site is located in the north of Dianchi Lake, taking the geological advantage of Yunnan. The design is proposed to make collision among its unique natural resources, geographical advantages and trendy elements, cultural industry, so that it demonstrates a new kind of modern urban aesthetics enriched by the spirit of poetry and entertainment.
The site is designed into three-paragraph narrative, with the experience of the wide-open flowing lines, from the ‘place of rainbow’ that showcasing the scenery of Yunnan, to the ‘blue and green landscape’ that seems like a stone Forest painting roll, and finally arrived at the suddenly open landscape courtyard, enjoying the Dianchi lake rafting and Xishan Moon.
Majority of the site is left blank, intending to convey a spirit of the site, a state of forgetting things and I, no self, and no name. These are also the expression in Zhuangzi "A Happy Excursion".
