Unique People’s Building for China
This unique building is designed by a group of Danish architects and designers named BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group) for a hotel, sports and conference center for the World Expo 2010 in Shanghai. The People’s Building is in the shape of a Chinese alphabetic character which means “people”.
It is conceived as two buildings merging into one. The first building, emerging from the water, is devoted to the activities of the body, and houses the sports and water culture center. The second building emerging from land, is devoted to the spirit and enlightenment, and housed the conference center and meeting facilities. The two building meet in a 1000 room hotel, a building for living. The building becomes the Chinese sign for “The People”, and a recognizable landmark for the world expo in China.
