Chinese design studio MUDA-Architects has just revealed its latest project, reimagining Haikou’s Xixiu Park into an enchanting community space. The public area is newly dominated by a swerved Visitor Center that emulates local cultural references through an ultra-modern lens.
The Haikou Xixiu Park Visitor Center was built over three years, blending perfectly with its environmental surroundings through a fluid facade. The oval-shaped structure is designed with four overlapping layers that reveal an open-air space from above.
Haikou City’s tropical atmosphere is reflected through its design, which represents the fluidity of water. Its glass anatomy allows light to flow effortlessly, while the park’s original layout is left unbothered. Inside the Visitor Center, you’ll find a welcoming reception hall, art-filled exhibition areas, and friendly cafes and restaurants.
