Studio505 has completed the Phoenix Valley building in China, which will serve a number of different purposes. The inside has various facilities, including cinemas, an art gallery, a place for live theater and much more.

The architecture firm actually won a bid for the design some time ago, and now it's finally come to fruition. Overall the building is quite irregular in shape, with roof sections covered in grass and sloping down. Moreover it's substantial in size, and considering how much is offered inside this makes perfect sense. It would be hard to enter the cultural hub and not find something to keep you entertained for the day. Courtyard areas are also featured in the center part of the structure, allowing people to get out for some fresh air too.
