Chengdu Languang Center, Chengdu, PRC

This theater building acts as a “thematic experience” by creating an immersive themed exterior and interior that places the visitor in a specific environment that exemplifies the ideals of Chinese Shu culture. The site functions as a ceremonial environment with a portal guarded by twin Shu towers and processional walkway protected by bronze standing man statutes. Thus, guests leave the modern world behind to experience 3000 years of glorious Shu culture.
