Cellular aluminum sheet's lightness, high intensity and high flatness guarantee the flatness of the large aluminum curtain wall. Meanwhile the reflections of the surroundings further strengthens the sense of floating. The cellular stone breaks the area limit of natural stone with a size of 1.2m wide x 2.2m high.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Permanent site of International Islands Tourism Conference, Choosing Dongsha Parcel, Zhujiajian, Zhoushan as the site. With the sea in the southeast, and surrounded by mountains in other directions. Westin faces Zhoushan Islands from afar in the north, and Putihai has been built in the south . In the intersection, the concept of "Conference Center in the park" initially comes into being. With Chinese and foreign envoys arriving and departing, businessmen from different countries delivering goods, and religion believers doing missionary work, “Maritime Silk Road” finally surpassed the vast sea and became the tie connecting China and the world over two thousand years ago. Starting in Qin and Han Dynasties, flourishing in the prosperous Tang Dynasty. Different civilizations mainly crossed the East China Sea, and reached Zhoushan Islands directly.

CHALLENGE:
In terms of the design idea, we tried to take "Conference Center in the park" as the core. Looking for design basis from the historical context and geographic and custom features from the city of thousand islands. Trying to explore the conference site building that accords with the local style, customs and historical context. Carrying out the people-oriented practice between history and the contemporary era, the region and civilization. From the project's technolgy in design, we used the Cellular aluminum sheet, which breaks the area limit of natural stone with a size of 1.2m wide x 2.2m high. It also can be used on the dropping ceiling which ensures the integrity of the entry space and renders a unusual drop-off experience. In landscape design, manifesting different courtyard themes in the park, and integrating different elements into one. The landscape which can be found inside and outside integrates with the scattered small-volume buildings, Connecting the park concept with the green axis landscape, the building volume is lightened and hidden in the landscape, providing the park with open public activity places.
