The Cropland Loop Resort is a high-end hotel in Chengdu, China, designed by Büro Ziyu Zhuang.
The building's shape is defined by a large dominant roof that shelters a variety of areas, each of them housed in an individual volume.
A building with yard and trees, cropland around it, plentiful water to cool the air, and cantilevering roofs provide shelter from the sun.
The result resembles a Chinese scroll-painting.
This project has been longlisted in the hospitality building category of Dezeen Awards 2020.
