renowned japanese architect kengo kuma has presented designs for ‘yunnan sales center’, a mixed-use complex to be built in yunnan, a province in southwestern china. the large 4,633 square meter complex comprises a housing sales center and showroom, fine dining facilities, exhibition space and an intimately crafted theater.

externally, the building’s latticed forms are organized around a shallow pool located at the heart of the scheme. the majority of the program is contained within two connected structures whose inverted forms rise organically from the water, while an elevated walkway bridges to a smaller volume embedded within the region’s undulating terrain.

internal walkways echo the building’s form with an angular network of circulation routes connecting internal programs, while the generous provision of glazing not only ensures that the design is flooded with natural light, but also offers expansive views across the chinese landscape.
