Beichuan Cultural Center

Situated in the northeast of the central axis, the Cultural Center is one of the most important buildings of the new county seat, and composed of Library, Cultural Hall and Qiang Folk Museum. The design conception originates from the Qiang settlement, and emphasizes on the blending of the architectural form and mountains with fluctuant roofing; as the earth landscape, the building naturally forms an integrated component of the urban landscape axis, and connects the three individual functional blocks together. Taking square buildings of various sizes and heights as the basic element, the building complex creates an abundant space experience as if people are travelling in a Qiang village.
