In early 2011, our small team at RTKL won a competition to design the Art and Culture Center for Suzhou Tech Park. I was the team leader and the designer of the winning option (two options were entered by each team).  Totaling 22,500 sqm, the building program includes theaters, cultural center, retails, and food & beverage areas. Taking advantage of the beautiful scenery around the site, especially the lake to its south, the design proposes to arrange the theaters and culture centers as two "mountains" that will bring the visitors up to an undulating roof garden, from where the breath-holding view of the surroundings will unfold.  The overhanging roof echoes the form of the mountains to the north. Lighted by LED, it will provide a highly visible and attractive landmark to the Tech Park at night.
