MEDG Current Engineering Design : As autumn deepens, Anhui surpasses Jiangnan in charm, especially in Huizhou’s southern Anhui. Here lies the Luo Yushan Cryptomeria Forest Wetland Park.
Originating in southern Anhui, the Xijin River flows through Ningguo, forming the largest reservoir in southeast Anhui—Qinglong Bay Reservoir. Like a river descending from the sky, Qinglong soars amid the mountains, with a surface area of 32.8 square kilometers.

Winding through the mountains is the “Jiangnan Sky Road,” also known as the National Tourist Resort Along the Sichuan-Tibet Line in Southern Anhui (S345). This road connects Ningguo and Jing County, offering a scenic route along the Xijin River.
Fangtang Township, located upstream of Qinglong Bay Reservoir, is traversed by the National Tourist Resort Along the Sichuan-Tibet Line in Southern Anhui. This area, with its shallow waters and expansive shore, is home to extensive Cryptomeria forests.

The winding river mouth of the reservoir naturally forms several waterways, perfect for strolling along wooden paths or navigating by bamboo raft, exploring the serene beauty of this aquatic forest. The colors of the Cryptomeria change throughout the seasons—from tender green to vibrant emerald, then to striking rust red. Finally, the winter leaves fall in shades of brown, marking the beginning of a new seasonal cycle. Enter this red-hued aquatic forest and experience the beauty of the changing seasons.
The popularity of the National Tourist Resort Along the Sichuan-Tibet Line in Southern Anhui has boosted tourism along the route. The magnificent autumn scenery of the Cryptomeria Forest has become a renowned attraction, continuously promoting the development of surrounding tourism businesses.
The development of sightseeing, leisure, entertainment, and accommodation has increased the influx of visitors, elevating the demand for Cryptomeria Forest views. Water-based sightseeing routes have improved, and the need for new Cryptomeria Forest observation platforms has become evident.

The ideal perspective to admire the Cryptomeria Forest is also the angle where the sun rises every day. Our design and tourism team has chosen to create a Sunlight Gallery atop the Cryptomeria Forest, providing a space to sense the changing seasons.
▽杉林之上的观景台 The observation deck above the fir forest
The platform atop the mountain was once a crude cement structure. The designer envisioned displaying the seasonal changes on the platform, with colors transitioning from tender green to vibrant emerald and then to striking rust red, ending with brown winter leaves.
Capturing the scenery of all four seasons and recording the daily sunlight cycle. On the peaks of undulating mountains, one can gaze far and wide, enjoying an endless autumn panorama. Parking on the provincial road, visitors can climb the original mountain path to reach the newly constructed mountain platform.
▽场地设计分析 Site design analysis
The platform’s original space was limited, prompting the addition of a second-level platform extending beyond the mountain, visible from the road below. Two sets of stairs lead to the top platform, increasing space utilization while offering a higher and broader view.

It takes a year for the Cryptomeria Forest to complete a full color cycle, while a pine tree stands alone between heaven and earth.
The sunlight completes a full cycle in just one day. Perceiving the seasons and capturing the scenery also means capturing the sunlight cycle every day.
▽光影下的观景平台给人以温暖与自然 The viewing platform under the light and shadow gives people warmth and nature
During the renovation, considering the broader view from the observation deck and the comfort of the resting space on the platform, a second-level platform was extended outward, creating a sense of connection with nature.
▽平台上的休息空间 Resting space on the platform
In reality, the original ground level was expanded and elevated, and two sets of stairs were added to form a triangular structure.
In the middle of the triangle, a cylindrical protrusion pointing toward the Cryptomeria Forest was created. The interior of the cylinder serves as a sheltered observation deck, while the upper level is an open and expansive observation space.
Visitors can not only experience the distinct changes of the natural landscape in all seasons but also observe the sunlight casting its textures on the gallery walls, depicting the changing moments of time.
Running fingers over the warm wooden boards of the observation platform, the sunlight etches the essence of the Cryptomeria Forest—a warm, natural wood texture, echoing the Cryptomeria’s innate qualities.
On one side of the observation platform, the pine tree on the mountaintop still stands, preserved during the construction of the observation platform, providing companionship with nature.
Using lightweight steel frames and ecological wooden boards, a viewing platform was constructed overlooking the Cryptomeria Forest.
Descending from the observation platform, visitors can follow the newly constructed path on the north side to descend the mountain. This path, initially a transportation route for construction materials, was repaired after the completion of the observation platform, becoming a new hiking trail. The local vegetation and ecological environment were minimally disturbed during the entire construction process, reducing carbon emissions.

The overall design of the Cryptomeria Forest observation platform uses chestnut-colored bamboo and wood boards, harmonizing with the surrounding mountains and forests. The safety railing is made of dark gray steel pipes complemented by dark gray steel wire mesh, providing stability, safety, and a subtle transparency.
Standing on the platform is a 4-meter-high two-story viewing frame, using light chestnut bamboo for the exterior to maintain material consistency and create a color contrast.
To ensure the platform’s stability on the mountaintop, 14 holes were dug into the rock wall of the mountain, and steel reinforcements were installed. The lower level of the frame has a suspended platform, providing an ideal viewing point for the Cryptomeria Forest.
The limited space on the mountaintop required expansion to accommodate visitors, and strict forestry management led to the adoption of the least invasive construction methods.
Transporting construction materials to the mountaintop was challenging due to the steep terrain and significant height differences, limiting the use of large machinery. Therefore, the steel frame of the observation platform was disassembled into components that were easy to transport by climbing, minimizing the impact on the mountain’s vegetation.
▽施工过程 Construction process
In this project, our design and tourism team focused on “exploring advantages, magnifying features, enriching formats, enhancing facilities, and brand operation.” With a light-touch approach, we maximized the exploration of site characteristics and cultural resources. Upgrading the visual system, renovating and building new relay stations along the route, and planning village development were employed to create content, connecting the “National Tourist Resort Along the Sichuan-Tibet Line in Southern Anhui” Ningguo section.
Transforming overlooked landscape features into platforms for dialogue between people and nature, people and culture, and people themselves, this initiative attracted tourists to enter, explore, and appreciate, enhancing the experience of self-driving tourism and injecting vitality into the construction of the “National Tourist Resort Along the Sichuan-Tibet Line in Southern Anhui” Ningguo tourism resort.
