Xiaojie Cultural and Activity Centre

Xiaojie Cultural and Activity Centre is composed of a public service building and a culture & sports building. It offers functional facilities for community service, exhibition, library, cultural activities, performance hall and gymnasium. Two buildings are set out 90 degree to each other to semi-enclosed two outdoor squares respectively dedicated to sports and parent-child activities.
Facing along the north-south direction, the public service building is alternatively constituted by 3 significant functional masses and 2 transparent glass masses to create a rhythm alternating tightness with relaxedness, as well as a rolling skyline. The buildings roof is characterized by a horizontal canopy which explicitly defines the skyline of the building and expresses a state of steadiness.  
The culture & sports building, facing along the east-west direction, is set to physically echo to the presence of the public service building. It is made up of 2 functional masses and 1 glass connector mass. As an auxiliary building, its skyline is blurred to visually reduce the building mass and weaken the challenge posed to the public service building.
