The wayfinding planning and design of Strait Collection Trading Center is one of our classic works. Located in the airport area of Xiamen Gaoqi International Airport, the project was started construction in 2014 and positioned as an important cultural industry gathering area in Xiamen. The goal is to build a large-scale, professional and standardized high-end collection display and trading platform with a complete industrial chain in China, drive the transformation and upgrading of the region, and promote the development of the cultural industry in Fujian and even the southeast coast of China, especially the cultural art market. After accepting this project, we first analyzed the planning and design objectives: this project is positioned as a high-end cultural and art industry cluster, and its architectural decoration style is a combination of modern, fashion and science and technology. Therefore, we show the elegant and high-end quality of the project by the bending of lines and the concave and convex surface blocks, while highlighting the sense of internal layers, streamline and technology. We make the structure and the image of natural simplicity perfect unity, so that the modern atmosphere of the guide and classical artistic conception coordination symbiosis. Xiamen is also known as Egret Island, so we used Du Fu's classic poem "two orioles singing in green willows, and a line of egrets flying in the sky", and took the egret's soaring wings as the main source of guiding creative modeling. At the same time, by integrating the architectural appearance of the project itself, we designed the zigzag, tough and changing guiding sign form. Xiamen has a long history, another inspiration for us is from the earliest Chinese characters Oracle and cliff stone carvings. Oracle represent and witness the cultural history of ancient China. Cliff stone carving is not only a way to remember things in ancient times, but also a great art of stone carving. Both of them have rich historical connotation and cultural symbolic significance. We take them as one of the main elements of the wayfinding system and integrate them into the creative design to achieve clear and efficient wayfinding and make us marvel at the excellence of ancient culture.
