The People's Station / People's Architecture Office

The People's Station is a cultural center designed to reinvigorate the sleepy Kwan-Yen district of Yantai. The building is situated just beyond the edge of the business district. With large open entryways, semi-outdoor areas and sections lifted above the ground, the building acts as a nexus that invites visitors to explore the historic core of the city.

These vehicles, a People’s Canopy and several Tricycle Houses, can also easily collapse and detach from the People’s Station.
