Aiming to blend into the mountainous landscape of Western China, architects Hongjun Zhou and Lu Xiong have proposed a skyscraper design named “hermit mountains.” Designed around the city of Lijiang, the skyscrapers take inspiration from classic Chinese landscape paintings as well as the beautiful natural surroundings and rich local ethnic culture. The skyscrapers are designed for work and life use, featuring meditation terraces, housing units,
recreational parks and agricultural fields. The design was recently given special mention at the 2010 Skyscraper Competition hosted by eVolo magazine.
