Baijia Lake Cultural Center is located on the central axis in the gateway area of Nanjing's Jiangning District. Openness and accommodation are the basic design requirement, as well as the city image of the site.

The total floor area is about 30,528㎡, and the total height is 33 meters. The 2nd and 3rd floor are lobby and library, 4th and 5th floor are art museum, the 6th floor is creative studio and cultural salons, ground floor and underground level are civic cultural center.

The architectural image takes full consideration of traditional culture and regionality. The façade re-interprets traditional Chinese elements with modern materials, creating a unique and familiar architectural image. The rectangular building is formed by two staggering void and solid volumes. The void volume emphasizes the vertical division, and opening of the solid volume corresponds one by one to the frame of void volume. Contrary to the solid southern façade, the void volume is arranged on the north, in respond to the open city plaza. The open façade, double height lobby and grand stairs create conversation between in and out. In addition, the void volume is the guide and extension of the urban axis and the historic Phoenix Platform ruins. The void volume adapts Chinese window frame motifs to create a fusion of traditional style with modern functionality.
