The wonders of the underwater world have been a site of interest to humankind for all these years. Experiencing rich marine habitats and the diverse life forms firsthand is a unique encounter. Over the course of time, many human-made elements and ruins have also occupied space in these habitats, which make for equally impressive sights to explore.

Shi Cheng is an ancient city belonging to the Zhejiang Province of China. This city has been in existence for over 1300 years. At present this city is submerged completely underwater of an artificial lake known as Qiandao Lake.

The following programmatic outline is the point to begin your design at. You can add more functions and activities in relevance or modify the above design programme

Utilities (Restaurants, Cafeteria, Toilets, Reception, Storage) ~ 300 sq.m
Media Theatre ~ 100 sq.m
Museum and Exhibition Gallery ~ 200 sq.m
Viewing Deck ~ 100 sq.m
Diving centre ~ 50 sq.m
Viewing Dock ~ 20 sq.m
Administration ~ 100 sq.m

The historic city belongs to the Eastern Han Dynasty of AD 208. The site was rediscovered in the last decade and efforts are being made to document the preserves in their entirety. It’s a remnant of the area’s cultural past and it must be made accessible to the public.

Short Description

The challenge is to design a tourist centre on Qiandao Lake for the exploration of the submerged Shi Cheng City.
