Project Direction and Scope

In order to make the Winter Olympic Cultural and Sports Square a landmark for worshiping the rites of the city, China’s Winter Ice and Snow Cultural Landmark should have both academic and experiential features, face foreign tourists and give consideration to local residents.Taking the Winter Olympic Ice and Snow Museum as the theme, libraries and Commerce belong to supporting functions, which do not need to be embodied/express separately. Mainly highlight the Winter Olympic Ice and Snow Museum. The construction scale, functions should meet the functional needs and are determined according to the design concept.

Taking the city center as the core, we should also consider the transformation of the existing museums and squares.Considering the two residential land (area: 11.59 hectares) on the north side of the project as a whole, it is necessary to make a conceptual planning and design plan for the supporting land.The commerce in the project belongs to the supporting commerce for the square and the winter Olympic Ice and Snow Museum. The commercial format must be based on sports culture, sports leisure culture, supporting some catering functions. The scale and requirements of the building are not restricted and determined according to the design concept.

Integrating Landscape and Architecture.

Olympic Redevelopment

In 1958, universities in China formed their own design offices. For the first time in history, university and design office were integrated into one – University-based Design Office. From then on, the development of university-based design offices has been closely knitted into the history of modern architecture of China.

Beijing site locality

Glocalism
