The new Crystal World, designed by studio Asymptote Architecture, is rooted in the spectacular geological conditions of the site of the Changsha EcoTech Resort City in China. The powerful assemblage of the crystalline forms is taking advantage of the unique natural setting, by leaving it as it is. The resort is floating above a new Crystal Mirror lake surrounded by cafes and restaurant along a waterside promenade.

The Waterworld Park houses various programs –swimming pools together with whirl and tiodal pools hang suspended in the vast interior of the park. The environment is highly dynamic due to structures such as water slides and recreational amenities that move through the space.

The contents are facilitated within the geometric volumes; therefore the ones requiring bigger space are housed in joined, contiguous space, as it is the case with Water World. The layering of different program elements creates a microcosm of unique interior environments, ranging from leisure and recreational to​athletic and educational.​ The main attraction of the structure is the multi-story lobby, celebrating snow, ice and water. Each hotel room is a state off the art technological space with custom control of all aspects of the guest’s environment. One of the most spectacular structures of the Crystal World is the indoor ski hill, which intersects the Snow and Ice World and spans the breadth of the quarry. As one looks through the entire building it becomes evident that the interplay of volumes and functions is very dynamic and amusing. The entire structure is carefully placed to minimally impact the surrounding natural condition of the site.

Crystal World emerges as a cloud, hovering above the landscape. Due to virtue of its architecture Crystal World is predestined to be a world class attraction and a destination that will bring visitors from Changsha and beyond.
