The owner hopes that the display center can convey the same allure as the classical traditional Chinese gardens of Suzhou. The overall design emphasizes the visitor’s experience of the space on site, especially when it conveys the fluid circulation of different spaces as experienced in traditional classical gardens. The project consists of 3 separate functional buildings with an open area enclosed in the middle. And different kinds of “transitional spaces” connect them all to form a modern courtyard which will become a spot where residents in the future can stay, socialize and communicate.
