This case is located in Tianshui, Gansu. Tianshui, a city enjoying the beautiful scenery of two rivers and plenty of water supply and farm products, is also known as the “Pearl in Longshang” and an important stop on the ancient silk road. The silk road winding through sand dunes brought about commercial activities as well as cultural traditions. Today, Tianshui remains a strategic town in the B&R initiative and plays a part in promoting the development of the Chinese civilization. The designer upholds the concept of “human orientation and nature worship”, integrates the local Tianshui culture and uses the historical silk road symbol and spirit throughout the space to carry forward the 1000-year prints, promote the Chinese civilization and look into the future of the city.

A modern simple style is adopted in the space and the silk road and Dunhuang dance elements are employed in the creation of an ambiance. The designer uses the physical impact of a dancing figure to tell a space story, and expresses in dance the rhythmic beauty of the still silk ribbon. The central skylight is the highlight of the whole space design. It’s the visual center as well as the source of natural lighting. When combined with the waterscape in the first floor, it represents the legend of the “heavenly river pouring down”. Under the skylight, the silk ribbon breaks up and turns into the central installation that connects the two floors. The entire space opens more outward like a dancing figure that attains a poetic harmony in the sunlight.

The GRG made installation thins out from the center to the edge and is shaped like an arch, adding no extra weight. To ensure safety, extra supports are mounted, and attention is paid to the setting of joints and parting points, an overlapping relation between GRG and glass.
