With the image of "mountains and waters above the clouds with firewood underneath", the building resembles the floating clouds enveloping the Longmen Mountain. It is the gateway to the National Giant Panda Forest Park, and the design takes three scenes of giant panda life - the bamboo forest, the clouds and the geological features of the local glacial drift - as architectural elements.
The "white bamboo forest" on stilts serves as a fully open village meeting room, which feeds back the four surrounding villages. With the lighting system, the dome will be turned into a universe of stars at night, and a fascinating way of life is underneath the stars. the locals bring the hustle and bustle here, creating a small world of shared community culture.
The main part of the suspended building originates from various natural cultural elements of the Longmen Mountains, creating an abundant cultural display space.
The two floating gravels on the water at the roof serve as a space for leisure and recreation, while the circular corridor under the eaves and the Longmen Mountain reflected in the water form a landscape painting, creating a unartificial atmosphere of people roaming in the painting.
