Echo of the Sea / Tongyi Architects

July 4, 2022 Collin Chen 0

“Echo of the Sea” is located in Rongcheng Ailian Bay Scenic Area, backed by Swan Lake. Swans travel south from Siberia to spend the winter, and lotus flowers bloom in summer. Therefore, this beach in Ailian Bay is very popular with nearby residents and tourists. Thinking about how to respond to nature easily and interestingly becomes the primary entry point of the design. While satisfying the basic service functions, it does not affect the existing natural landscape as much as possible. Therefore, how to grasp the balance between “hidden” and “explicit”, “external scale” and “internal space” has also become a consideration throughout the project.
