The project is located in Tai'an, Shandong Province, facing Mount Tai across the road to the north and echoing the West Lake to the south. The site is low in the south and high in the north, with a height difference of nearly 20m. The building is located on the west side of the plot. It is an exhibition area in the early stage and will be transformed into a community center in the later stage. At the same time, it is also the main entrance of the whole community.





Architects try to use symbolic architectural language to express the spirit of the place. Specifically, the design imagines the two undulating and intertwining mountain ranges of Mount Tai as flying lines, thus forming the flowing and interlaced roof of the community center.





The project is a three-story building with a surface width of nearly 70m and a supporting area of 2,530 square meters. The community center adopts the mathematical symbol "∞", which symbolizes infinite, to weaken the building volume. The smooth and boundless wall and the large glass curtain wall relieve the sense of pressure of the building.





The main building structure of plain grey stone and the cantilevered wooden eaves together make the whole building present a gentle temperament. In terms of internal design, large areas of cool white stone and warm wood structure create a detached space, adding a calm temperament to warmth. A large amount of white space can fully accommodate sunlight and enable the shadow of the artistic skylight to be engraved in the space.
