Jinghe New City Culture and Art Center has a meandering form, there are courtyards and outdoor areas that serve as cultural and recreational activities. Zaha Hadid Architect got a reference on the shape of the Jinghe New City Culture and Art Center which was inspired by the Jinghe river and mountain valleys that have existed for a long time. The mass forms, layers, and flowing surfaces of buildings define the cultural sequence and interior and exterior recreation of the community. Jinghe New City Culture and Art Center is equipped with interconnected courtyards and landscapes so that visitors’ activities can be fully accommodated.

In choosing a location, ZHA needs to consider several things that are strategic or not. Jinghe City was chosen because the new city is a growth center for industrial energy, materials, artificial intelligence, and aerospace. The adjacent eight-lane development on Jinghe Avenue can connect the city’s commercial and residential areas in the north with parks in the south. It will include a flexible multimedia library and performing arts theater, multi-function hall, studio, and exhibition gallery.

The multimedia library will be combined with a traditional print publication room and visual reality technology that serves to expand learning boundaries and enrich knowledge exchange. In the building, there is also a series of terraces overlooking the skylights which are equipped with a place for reading, private and shared research. Meanwhile, performing arts theater can be used to accommodate various events with a capacity of 450 people.

ZHA also plans energy savings through optimizing ventilation and natural light and prioritizing local materials. This public space also has solar panels that can generate electricity, as well as media that can collect rainwater so that it can be reused. 

So Jinghe New City Culture and Art Center becomes a flexible place for recreation and sharing knowledge about culture. A representative form is one of the references regarding the function of space and the suitability of a sustainable public area.
