The design inspiration of the demonstration area came from "clouds." Designers extracted Zhuhai's characteristic cultural elements, like "float, cloud, flowing, and connection," to bring a "life on the cloud." The main building is like a cloud floating above the street corner. The 360° circular form brings infinite imagination. The design uses a large area of glass curtain wall to connect the inside and outside while providing the largest display interface. The white perforated aluminum panels are lightweight and easy to shape, vividly showing the lightness of the "clouds."
