Wangwu Mountain National Geopark is typical texture which owns a series of special scientific significance, rarity and aesthetic value. It recorded the change process of the 2.5 billion – year – old north China sea and land in detail, and reflect the whole process of the hyperplasia, splicing and cracking of the ancient continent systematically. It has the significance of world contrast.

The architectural form originates from the “人” type of the three-pronged rift structure in the Wangwu Mountain area. The color relation of the building originates from the natural stone in Wangwu Mountain.

Wangwu Mountain is the mountain which was dug by the ancient Chinese Yu Gong with the spirit of “digging mountains for generations”. We should rethink the value judgment of the anthropocentrism faceing nowadays ecological environment. Therefore, we hope to design a building which can conform the nature in the hometown of Yu Gong. It’s completed by the use of the natural topography, the preservation of native trees, the use of local artisans and local materials.

The geologists suggest setting up four places to express the Proterozoic Square, Palaeozoic Square, Mesozoic Square and Mesozoic Square periods respectively. After analyzing the landform, we find that the natural elevation of the original topography can create four plazas exactly. Since the site is small, the integral geological museum can’t be accommodated, so combining the idea of plaza design, we “broke” the building into four separate blocks and put them on plazas with different elevations. The four pavilions are related to the adjacent plaza contents, forming the display space of internal and external integration.
