Tourism Planning and Adventure

The southern coast of Hainan Island, gateway to the South China Sea, has become an increasingly popular tourist destination that promises a sufficient variety of entertainment and educational activities for families to return again and again. MGA&D was asked to imagine a coastline tourist venue on Sanya Bay to complement a  seaplane center that we designed. We envisioned an aviation experience museum with many attractions, from interactive I Fly weightless chambers and high-tech flight simulators to exhibits explaining the physics of flight. An outdoor park features a sculpture-filled esplanade, aviation-themed rides in an adventure plaza and tiered seating at water’s edge for watching airshows. The fluid forms and modern character of the architecture suggest both aircraft and the fluidity of the Bay’s blue waters.
