This site is in a district called Xixi Heaven which is at the southeast of Xixi Wetland Park. There are lots of luxury hotels in Xixi Heaven which are set for the tourists of the Park. Xixi Wetland Museum is also in this district. The distance between the Park and this district is 2.4km. So the transportation in between is one of the urgent problems.
Since there already exist some cruise lines in the Park, setting a pier on the site could be a good solution.
Meantime dealing with the relationship between Xixi Wetland and the calligraphy museum is also the main task. Hence, the similarity between the skin texture of Xixi Wetland and calligraphy/painting works seems to be a start point. As the result, seal finally becomes the main design idea.
