（PUBLIC SERVICE ARCHITECTURE）
Zhaojun Museum is designed to ‘memorize Wang Zhaojun, a ‘princess from 2000 years ago. Her marriage established a friendly relationship between Xiongnu and Han dynasty. Our design has a focus on materi’ality. We use modern materials to re-cre’ate “wood and earth”, in order to better in’terpret the context of the site.
The Dream of the drama ”Peony Pavilion”
Considering the park’s historical neighborhood, the service building is elegantly designed and shows a humble gesture. Some functions such as tourist center, community lounge, and retails stores are merged into the historical blocks, making a connection between the park and the neighborhood. The design is considered by the local residents as a solution to or’ganic urban revitali’zation.
