In few years, building a “refined city” and renewing the central old town have been enormously emphasized in Weihai,Weihai Port was the first commercial port in the city , built in 1918.Rendering the old port an important anchor point in this process,the design is focusing on the vacant site, to sew the gap in the waterfront public space, to provide a linkage between water and land, and to highlight the city’s past and future.The complex will further diversify the urban environment and offer activities and experiences for all ages, enabling people to gather and spend time together.
