When it's explained that a piece of architecture has been inspired by nature, it doesn't necessarily mean that the resemblance is strictly discernible. In the case of the Taizhou City Cultural and Creative Industry Building, you might not guess that its unique fragmented facade is influenced by the mountains and cliffs on the horizon.
When Miliy Design approached the hilly site with some of the most breathtaking views in all of China, they were reminded of the exquisite paintings of the panoramas depicted by the country's past masters. The textural techniques used to express the choppiness and splintering of the distant rock faces were translated into sliver-like excisions from the structure's white cladding. Embodying such an imaginative take on the environment and the visual arts, the Taizhou City Cultural and Creative Center is a fitting home for a gallery and arts education spaces.
