Restoring the historical features of the CAT to the largest extent and revitalizing this area through tourist and commercial propositions.
The cultural square of Chan’s Ancestral Temple (CAT) is intended to be a multi-programmed tourist site that is rich both in historical architecture and civic culture. Our design proposes to divide the land around the CAT, the core of the region, into five spaces with different programs: history space, exposition space, culture space, sports space and civic activities space. Through rebuilding, revitalizing and transforming the five spaces, we aim at creating a new spatial organization that consists of one core, one museum, one stripe, one street and multiple points.
