A New Incredible Architecture Landmark to Visit in China – Nowadays the Great Wall of China is the most popular tourist attraction of the country. However, things are about to change! Meet the Suiseki Hall, a contemporary architecture example that will catch your attention.
Located in the ancient city of Liuzhou, in the Chinese province of Guangxi, The Suiseki Hall is characterized by the peculiar contemporary shape making it must-visit architecture landmark.
The contemporary building was idealized, by the Zhanghua Architects, as an amassment of serial sections. The translation between a linear profile and a curved profile results in a formally unusual landscape format, turning it into a true work of art.
The inspiration for this contemporary project relies on the dramatic topography of the city, carved by the Liujiang River. The volume of this architecture project is created by the negotiation between the angular rear face and the curving front face.
The community considered the city’s hills as a masterpiece from the nature gods. That’s why the project architectural form was born with the right side folded and the left side curved. Each part is extruded vertically along the S shape, creating a movement sensation with some macroeconomic effects. We can say it was a way to try to replicate the natural masterpiece of Liuzhou.

According to the architects, in a cultural point view, this project represents the mountain and flowing water, at the same time, like ‘yin’ and ‘yang’. “Two sides is a unity of opposites and can transform into each other between the two. The heavy part is earth, while the light part in heaven”, says the designers’ team. This thought represents that feeling that ancient people share about nature.
