The Cropland Loop Resort
by Büro Ziyu Zhuang

Rui Han, Ji Sen

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.

Architect: Büro Ziyu Zhuang
