Haikou will build 16 coastal cultural pavilions in Haikou Bay and Jiangdong New District. The project, “Pavilions by the seaside - Haikou”, will invite architecture and art industry leaders to create the world's first public service coastal art & cultural corridor with the concept of “Nature - Symbiosis - Future”. They will work together across borders to creatively design a variety of pavilions with different styles and themes, creating a group of landmark coastal buildings.

"Different from artwork with merely ornamental value, this project integrates multiple practical functions such as relaxation, entertainment, communication, education, and public services. People are encouraged to interact with these artworks and reestablish a harmonious relationship with nature," said Weng Ling, the world-class art curator piloting the project.

More than ten world-class public art pavilions will be completed and are expected to open by the end of this year, enriching Haikou life with a new, immersive art experience.

Here are the designer's visions for the "Pavilions by the seaside·Haikou".

Kengo Kuma, a Japanese architect said ,"I will collaborate with my friend Ryuichi Sakamoto, a world-famous musician, to create a place where we can enjoy both nature and music, as well as the coastal city surroundings."

Sou Fujimoto, another Japanese architect said he will "find the harmony between the pavilions, the shore, and the sea in order to show the beauty of Haikou as well as engage the public with our project and the seascape."

Ma Yansong, a Chinese architect stated, “Our project is called 'Wormhole Library'. We hope to create a space which leads people to find novel angles to appreciate their familiar landscapes, such as the sky and the sea through the holes, and to enjoy the fun of discovery and exploration."

Dutch architect Winy Maas's project will integrate the culture and landscape of the city. From where he stands, it is very important for Haikou and Hainan Island as it proves that this kind of combination of people, nature, and city has a future.

Lin Tianmiao, a Chinese architect said, "'Pavilions by the seaside - Haikou’ brings together top talents from different people groups, different cultural backgrounds, and different professions. All this world-class wisdom will surely add new vitality to Haikou. Art, architecture, and the beauty of the landscape will be powerful elements that will draw global attention to the new development concept of ocean cities of tomorrow."
