Name: Hangzhou SAGA Cinema
Location: Hangzhou, Zhejiang, China
The main lobby is expressed as the inside of a jade cong, ie a square with a central ‘opening’ in the ceiling. The mall building’s large concrete columns which penetrate this space have been transformed into shafts of light from above.
The most striking feature is the backlit jade wall which is formed by over 500 disks shaped in the plan form of the jade cong with a central hole.
