TYPE : Retail, Integrated Resort

Dream Lang Fang is a lifestyle center featuring retail, restaurants and entertainment.Instead of placing department stores as corner anchors, we introduced some high end attractions and thrill rides- a flying theater (soaring ride) and a flume ride as bookends, and an augmented reality shot and drop tower in the central courtyard.

The exterior architecture is inspired by the crane wings, a symbol of longevity and immortality.These wings separate a 500m long building volume into sections. Each section is treated as a canvas with abstract texture, symbolizing different regions of China.The main entrance is embellished by a large video waterfall installation.
