The design conceptualizes Chinese culture, from traditional garden design to include the timeless arts of calligraphy, painting and music, creating a contemporary urban scene catalysed by European creativity, notably through works by Arne Quinze.

The project involves developing a site belonging to the Hérault Regional Council with the aim of creating a new district where sport, culture and history will be the dominant themes.

The aim is to permit this development to become an inherent part of the urban landscape, used regularly by people living in the local neighbourhoods as well as throughout the town and surrounding areas.
