CHI HONG CHING YUEN integrates Taoist principles of harmony between humanity and nature into architectural design, encompassing the realms of building, interior spaces, and landscape. Emphasizing a holistic approach to sustainability, this design philosophy aims to forge a stronger connection between individuals and the natural world. The building itself features round corners and varying heights, employing a combination of passive and active design strategies. By embracing biomimicry, the journey through each room becomes an immersive experience, offering captivating vistas, water elements, fresh air, abundant natural light, and lush greenery. The ultimate vision behind this project is to enable people to comprehend Taoist ideals in the 21st century through direct physical encounters. This approach maintains a delicate balance between innovation and the preservation of Chinese traditions, ensuring a harmonious integration of ancient wisdom and contemporary design.
