Located in Hunan Xiangjiang New Area Dawangshan District, Xiangjiang Fun City program plans to build a world-class comprehensive tourism destination. Particularly, being listed as an impossible architecture in the world by Discovery, the world of ice and snow is built on abandoned mines. After shooting five times here, it has eventually been made into a 45-minute documentary and broadcasted around the world.
On April 27th, after being moulded by concrete in consecutive thirty hours, the first 1000 square meters concrete of the sixteen-meter platform of a world of ice and snow is completed. “It has overcome many difficulties during construction and trial since it is the first district.” the contract project manager of China Construction 5th Engineering Bureau Xiangjiang Fun City Zhao Jinguo said. The whole sixteen-meter platform covers more than 30000 square meters, which is equivalent of five standard football pitches and divided into nine districts for construction. The world of ice and snow is estimated to be completed in 2019.
