Apart from the Chinese pitched roofs, another design feature was the four dragons that represent the “Dragon” from Chinese mythology. Though modern architecture has abandoned the topic of “symbolism,” it is revived here through the dragon-themed styling. The Dragon had always been a potent symbol, so this symbolism was something we sought to reinforce once more in this design. It imbues this public building with a new level of spiritual meaning, satisfying its need for a city center and giving the city more character.
