Pandasia in Chinese style
The "Pandasia" project was built according to traditional Chinese style. To make it authentic, the design includes various Chinese elements, ornaments and accessories. The roof and wall structures were made in China using traditional methods, and have been finished in suitable, authentic colours. The walls feature round elements with Chinese depictions. The roof is covered with traditional tiles that were handmade in China according to traditional methods. The shape, structure, proportions, materials and colours of the buildings are all based on a Chinese temple.
