Staged over various levels from street level to sunken courtyards the architecture creates private enclosed spaces that are still open to the sky and frame detailed internal views. Still shallow water features at the entry and sides of the building reflect the architecture and leave an impression that the building is “floating” on the water.

As you progress further into the space you step down to a sunken courtyard that contains resting areas and discussion spaces. The open nature of these lower spaces still allows for sunlight to stream in, creating reflections off the water onto the walls that appear to sparkle with the light. Framed views to sculptures through classic Chinese elements such as circular windows to the walls further reinforce the connection between architecture and art.
