The Xixi Wetland Hotel is situated in the Xixi wetland area, west of Hanghzou. Ten landmarks are spread across the landscape as watchtowers. The towers have a central core that represents the main structural element and gives access to the rooms, only two suites on each floor.

Besides, the core acts as a rotation axis for the different plants, which rotate each from the previous one, in a gesture of visual scanning of the swamp. Under the towers, the public areas of the program are built like springs located along the walkways that connect them.
