After two decades of infrastructural and urban development, China is now experiencing a fast build-up of tourism activities.

In order to allow for the intense development to grow faster the Chinese government declared several regions as “tourism formation zones”.

Among these is the area around the spectacular Changbai volcano in the province Jilin, right at the border of North Korea.

The region is formed by the vast dimensions of its forests, reaching until Siberia. Since there is permafrost between November and April, the area will be transformed into a “tourism mekka” of winter sports.

In the context of this recent development, GRAFT was asked to design and plan the “Changbai Mountain Slopes”. The entire project extends to six million m2 at three different locations.

“Hengsahn” is an area of rolling hills where a bigger village and numerous resort hotels focusing primarily on “preventive medicine” and “cultural lifestyle” are planned. A skiing region, that is going to be the biggest in Asia, is planned in “Wangtiane”.

The details of the regional planning follow the basic concept of focusing on individual architectural characters that complete each other: A new constructed train line will allow a very fast connection between the different business and entertainments locations.

The ski jumps will be the future emblem of Wangtiane. In total three ski jumps will be build, two in olympic dimensions and the third as flying hill for extreme long jumps.

The ski jump complex will also be characterized by its multi-functionality: it will incorporate restaurants and VIP lounges, as well as hotels.
