The project is inspired by the image of phoenix, a sacred and auspicious totem in Chinese culture and an essential cultural symbol of Foshan. The ceiling of the main hall is inspired by the Gothic architecture, which makes the space look tall and magnificent. With the vertical pillars and smooth lines connecting the ground and the ceiling, the ceiling looks like a huge phoenix soaring upward. The breath-taking chandeliers, made up of many small crystal light bulbs, look like the dazzling phoenix feather in a distance, combining a sense of future with the past.
