Ancient elements revived.

Traditional myths interpreted with modern techniques

Master planning and concept design for a destination entertainment development featuring a theme park, water park, retail and dining district, and hotels.

Working with traditional Chinese elements, each of the park's 4 main zones followed the myths of earth, water, wind, and fire, creating unique experiences designed to appeal to China's traditional culture, yet presented in modern, exciting ways.

The region's weather required some form of protection from rain. Kevin and Team proposed ETFE open air domes to provide shelter, but still create a fresh, outdoor feeling. The icons of each zone protrude from the top of the zones, creating interesting iconic landmarks. The retail, dining and entertainment district has a distinctive observation tower which will become the symbol of the entire project and the new city itself.
