the lake, the dam and the mine cliff
XinAnJiang (the lake of thousand islands) is an artificial field created by an hydroelectric dam in the 50s.

this proposal was outlined to oppose a hotel project designed as a false-boat cruises ... supposed to be made of concrete along the shore, such drawn by a Sino-American company.
the proposal is to lean the hotel ahead an old stone extraction mine in order to rehabilitate the site.

the lake extends to the cliff allows access to the hotel by boat in an aquatic lobby. the hotel becomes the third stage of the site's history:

  • nature
  • stone mine
  • the construction of the hotel integrates and rebuilt the site.
