One of the interesting challenges of urban design in a place like the Dongqian lake is how to approach the relationship between the architecture and the landscape, specially when there is direct contact between the area and the waterfront. By incorporating traditional Chinese concepts that relate the open spaces with the architecture, the construction starts to disappear in some areas to let the landscape take part on the experience. Most of the spaces are directly linked with the surroundings of the lake, and by doing so, the materials and volumes start to blend into the picture.
