The Sheraton Huzhou Hot Spring Resort comprises a pair of matching 27-storey towers that are connected on the upper levels to form a smoothly curving arch across the water.

Ma Yansong of MAD designed the building for the Sheraton hotels chain, which was responsible for the interior fit out. A total of 282 guest rooms are contained inside, while additional villas and guest facilities are housed within several accompanying buildings.

    Sorry, didn’t mean to sling that one so far over your head.

    Its form possesses universal qualities. Not meant to relate to its environment. I like the tradition-free form.

    London has its Gherkin. Huzhou has its cock ring.

    Stop being brainwashed by the jealous Western media. Go to China, see the site and comment with your brain.

    This is a redefinition of iconic architecture…
    Too bad western media will always find something silly to say about anything from China. Why not explain the amazing engineering that went into “crafting” this masterpiece?

    Great job MAD.
