  • About Firm
    VOA is an academic design organization that pursues creation and research and development. Its core members share the same professional belief, design philosophy and creation concept. Before that, they have completed a large number of influential works in Shanghai, Zhejiang, Jiangsu and other East China regions. The construction team includes a large number of rich and powerful professor level senior engineers, senior engineers, level-1 registered designers and professional designers.

The continuous undulating roof of the tourist distribution center is not only a tribute to the common saddle mountain wall in the east of Fujian, but also a unity of order among the scattered six small units. However, under the unified roof, the cultural and sports activity center has a number of small blocks, which looks like a miniature city. The boundary of the two buildings is the circular and square ambulatory, which is not only the designer's adaptation and response to Zhou Ning's rainy and cold climate, but also the non-verbal expression of the "fish sacrifice" culture.
