The design scheme of project combines multi-function forms, blended urban park, enclosed blocks and courtyards, green and low-carbon combination, and integrated underground spaces.The main tower is the visual core of the whole area.

It illuminates the facade in a subtle way as thin as cicada wing, getting a delicate aurora dynamic lighting effect. At night, it presents an unparalleled visual appeal together with lighting of huge inner courtyard elevation. Lighting through the glass at the bottom of the podium injects the site with a sense of light and future.The lighting control system and strict anti-glare technology are adopted to make a balance of various lighting scenes and energy consumption.
