GroupGSA wins bid for Four Season Town reception Center in Chongli, Beijing China where 2022 Winter Olympics will be hosted.
The centre will be used as an information centre recording the history and culture of Chongli, as well as well as serving as an information centre point for the activities happening at the Four-Season Town Ski Resort during the 2022 Winter Olympics.
The exciting and dynamically shaped landmark will also showcase the social, cultural and economic successes as a result of Chongli’s future development, which encompasses the development of the Fulong Four Seasons Resort.
Located at the main entrance of the Four Seasons Resort – the closest resort to the 2022 Winter Olympics host town, Chongli – GroupGSA’s design for the 4610m2 project sought to enhance its connection with the surrounding mountain slopes and snow tracks.
Its dynamic movement connects architecture to the natural landscape, creating an extension of the mountain and inviting visitors to experience the stunning panoramic views on a range of different levels.
GroupGSA drew on the theme, Fire and Ice, to represent the resort’s two major tourist seasons. Temperatures change very quickly from icy winter to hot summer at Chongli, so the architectural and design team implemented the integration of hot and cold in its façade design.
GroupGSA will be involved with the project until construction is completed. Completion is expected by December 2018. Source and images Courtesy of GroupGSA.
