Yansong designed the beach-side venue to host works and occasions created by 300 creatives in the course of the pageant.

He hopes that the “fanciful” non permanent construction will encourage interplay between creatives from completely different disciplines.

“In actual cities the necessity for performance suffocates religious areas,” he stated.

“Constructing a whimsical metropolis by the ocean permits the substance of theatre and artwork to breathe pure life into this house,” he continued.

“Chickening out and transcending actuality, it’s a place devoted to time, human habits, and nature, inspiring contemplation on {our relationships} with ourselves and the world.”
