These renderings belong to a resort in China (Songjiang, near Shanghai), which includes sports facilities, visitors’ center and a 5-star luxury hotel. You will not be surprised with the abandoned quarry, but you will definitely like that some of the floors are under the water. The space of the building is full of natural light and it incorporates the best of the existing landscape: rocks, waterfalls, and lush vegetation.
The construction has already begun, and it might be completed by 2016 or even earlier. It is known that the building will offer 400 rooms plus underwater restaurant, clubs, shops, and an aquarium.
This spectacular idea is accompanied by strategies which suggests sustainable use of the project which will feature smart use of roof gardens, and the use of geothermal energy for heating and electricity production.
