Ciao, Shanghai! Hello Italy!

Old time, present and future are co-existed and this phenomenon is not deep-rooted illusion. Alternation of time and space are everywhere here.
Customs in different places are grown in people’s hearts with her unique historical memory. Whilst architectures are the best reflections of those customs. They are pretty like fascinating kaleidoscopes that letting people never wanna stop. Those kaleidoscope designers, they ingeniously add some of culture, regional customs, social and personal elements, solidifying eternity and change, making people feel the true meaning of architecture in the vigorous sense of history and strong regional customs.
