An innovative concept design for a new generation entertainment complex.

The 50,000m2 building will include a digital arena, football exhibition, indoor karting circuit, interactive gaming, 3D Cinema 200 seat concert venue retail, food and beverage outlets, spa and hotel.

Conceived as a dramatic yet simple form, with the 3D cinema suspended as a floating ball in the centre of the cuboid space, the façade is designed as an active kinetic digital skin to project images and video. The multilevel space is connected by escalators with the hotel and spa located around a sky garden at the top of the building.
