Culture is an abstract concept. In pursuit of concretizing culture, designers are used to focusing on the long history of cities while breaking with present culture and nature. That is why urban designs for paying honor to local history instead become even stranger, making them nothing but mere symbols. Present culture shows the respect for ordinary people, things and days, while nature stands for a lifestyle of cherishment and reverence. This is exactly what our project wants to show: restraining from overstatement and sentiment, seizing the day and giving full play to simplicity. Our project follows after the fashion of “box”—the simplest closed space in architecture, and incorporates heaven and earth into one. The placid waters and sculptured ring-shaped bridge, stressing themselves by simple lines and austere materials, constitute a place of quiet residence. We are commissioned to do the interior design of this project. Using the simple black, white and gray as the main tone in the interior, and such strong hierarchical rhythm create the beauty with different levels.
