A Spectacular Lotus-Shaped Building That Sits On A Lake In China

Melbourne-based architecture studio studio505 has designed an impressive lotus-shaped conference center in Wujin, the Southern district of Changzhou in China.

Costing an estimated AUD $12 million, the design boasts three forms of lotus, fitted with incredible, curving architecture and spectacular lights. It sits in the center of an artificial lake.

The project is currently underway, residing in the 3.5 hectare Lotus Park, which is designed to be a new cultural icon and hub in Wujin.

When completed, it will be home to a Grand Theatre for 1000 patrons, a cinema complex, sports halls, and educational youth palace for 4,000 students.
