Crystal Lake in Xiamen, China by OPPENHEIM Architect
March 3rd, 2011 by Sumit Singhal
Crystal Lake was a competition to design the architecture of multi-phased mixed-use complex in Xiamen. The project strives to create a modern interpretation of the Jiageng style, which is a fusion of western and Chinese architecture. To break down the scale of the buildings patterns are articulated on the façades. These patterns help maintain a design consistency through the project to create the sense of village living across the development.
