GUISHAN ISLAND TOURISM COMPLEX
32.000 SQM___________ZHUHAI, CHINA
AN ISLAND IN A BUILDING
Can a mere architecture project transform a sleepy way station town into an active, 24/7 island hopping hub? Could the quintessence of the island’s spirit be captured -and displayed- in order to re-invigorate the island’s identity and re-brand its image?
Organized in terraced clusters that echo the layouts of the local fishing village communities, “the fishermen's pods” collect and exhibit the best features of the Guishan Island, in one iconic and identity-giving lifestyle center: an island in a building.
