The lantern is the cen­tre of a new urban design for Xi’an. The area will mix res­i­den­tial with com­merce in the belt sur­round­ing the green and cul­tural heart. The rib­bon will have a high den­sity match­ing the neigh­bor­ing high-rise, but inte­grat­ing the human scale by adapt­ing its build­ing form of the build­ings.
The cir­cu­lar form around the movie stu­dio is mark­ing the area in which the West­ern Movie Group expe­ri­ence plays.
It forms a lantern with con­no­ta­tions to the Chi­nese lantern, with related com­mem­o­ra­tion and the magic lantern, the begin­ning of film mak­ing. Famous movies are to be pro­jected on the inside.
The cir­cle is tilted so that it par­lay slides under­ground and becomes an under­ground build­ing with a glass roof as part of the trans­formed exist­ing movie studio.
