Mulan weichang Project, as a public living room of the great multi-ethnic family, designed by Shanghai HuaDu Architecture and Urban Design Group (HDD) based on the interaction and fusion of the grassland natural spirit and traditional Chinese culture, has become the spotlight of the media in and abroad China, and has been short-listed for the Royal Institute of British Architects National Award (RIBA).
In the design, three ways are adopted to merge the architecture into the landscape. First, HDD designed a harmonious and featured model by adopting modern interpretation on traditional local building, which blends the architecture into the neighborhood. Second, local materials are used, especially the building facades are made with used wood beams, vines and rough rocks found locally. Last but not least, the architecture was merged into the topography by forming micro-topography among the local landscape.
