Read “Green Roots: New Jiang Wan Cultural Center by RTKL” in ArchNewsNow of November 7, 2006 here.

An aerial view evokes the image of a flower unfolding on an ancient silk painting.? Landscaped areas around and atop the structure integrate the building with the site and increase energy conservation; exhibition, education, and entertainment facilities are enjoyed by the residents of Shanghai. The roof deck serves as an expansive public space (ArchNewsNow, 2006).
