Facts

  • At night, the entire building is lit up brightly by both its interior and exterior lighting. The building is intended to ressemble the bright moon rising above the Tai Lake.
  • The ring-shape posed a great challenge to the structural design and eventually, a reinforced concrete core-tube featuring high capacity, light weight and excellent earthquake resistance, was implemented while simultaneously reducing environmental pollution during construction.
  • The mesh curved surface structure makes the building more solid. Solidity is further enhanced by the bridge-like bracing steel structure that connects with the double cone structure at the top floor.
  • The building's façade is covered with layers of fine-textured white aluminum rings and glass.
  • The hotel’s ring shape enables all rooms to have balconies and views, and receive daylight from all directions.
  • 19,000 LED lights illuminate the façade at night, allowing animated images to be cast on the waters of the lake.
