Hilton Wuhan Optics Valley presents this hotel through the perspective of its glamorous and innovative design. Tightly knitted around the core area, yet spaced out towards the edges, the layout is characterized by a central symmetry and a separation of the external and the internal areas. A cluster of interlacing courtyards gives the hotel lobby its distinct personality. The functional areas are thus separated so that the guests can enjoy unique insular spaces, of the sort typically offered only by small hotels. The design of the façade drew inspiration from Jing-chu Culture, with its clean lines, delicate details, traditional textures and natural materials. Overall, the hotel imparts a sense of understated luxury and otherworldly elegance, allowing the architecture to perfectly blend into the beautiful natural environment that surrounds the Yanxi Lake.
By systematically presenting various stages of the hotel - from early-stage preparation to design and engineering, and finally to construction and completion - this book provides a valuable contribution to architects and designers in related fields.
