"Dong Xi" is a fantastic Chinese word, "East & West" in English, which stands for both the positions and the Taoist theory of the Five Elements, including the spatial concept, cultural attributes, and generally refers to a variety of specific or abstract people, things, objects... and so this place “grew.”  A huge banyan tree stands ahead. The plane layout and the circulation of the entire space are derived from this tree. Banyan trees are always found in the red earth. This one grows as well as it just matches the courtyard. The flight edged with the steel plates comes down step by step, full of black sand like the water running slowly, setting off the scenery in "Dong Xi".
