Based on ancient Chinese myths, Wangwu mountain was the mountain that Yugong "tried to move". In this project, we emphasize respecting the site form and minimizing the earthwork volume. We use four terraces on the original hillside to build the square named after the four geological ages. The building is also divided into four blocks. Each block is integrated with the geological square of the corresponding era, and adjacent blocks are connected by stairs. We also preserve all the trees on the site; The main building envelope was produced by the local reddish-brown sandstone. Because the stone wall was not allowed based on the seismic code, we utilized 150mm thick sandstone as the exterior concrete wall formworks, and did not remove any formworks after casting concrete. Finally, the constructed formworks became the external wall of the building. In this way, the building, environment and landscape are highly integrated.
