Text description provided by the architects. The design consists of a building complex, an open plaza and a bridge. A three by three grid system integrates nine courtyards as a whole. It slopes down to fill the gap between the mountain and the River, both in terms of the horizontal span and the vertical height difference on both sides of the site.

This five-storey complex contains a theatre with 1,200 seats, and a planning exhibition centre, a museum, a library, a cultural palace and a youth activities centre. A path which through from the mountain to the riverside penetrates the building .This passage functions as a guiding path to provide the access to a variety of activities within the building. The stepped roof creates a space that allows public accessing and provides a view platform echoing to the River Dam. It’s a building with traditional style to show collective memory of the city.
