As the commercial core of Nanchang Wanda Cultural Tourism City, Nanchang Wanda Mall is the first shopping mall developed by Wanda Group after is transformation. Instead of standardized design for Wanda Plaza, Wanda Group prefers thematic and experience-oriented design for Wanda Mall.

Nanchang Wanda Cultural Tourism City is an innovative world-mega comprehensive development featuring tourism, cultural and commercial functions. It is developed by Wanda Group based on years of rich experience in commercial, cultural and tourism sectors. With such entertainment projects as large-scale indoor aquarium, world-class stage show, science and technology film park, large-scale indoor / outdoor theme park, international resort hotel cluster and lakeside bar street, the completed Wanda Cultural Tourism City will form the four major centers in Jiangxi Province, i.e. “cultural center”, “tourist center”, “commercial center” and “life center”, becoming a provincial core area with full-fledged supporting facilities.

The Project in the shape of massive blue and white porcelain vase helps to offer a distinctive thematic and experience-oriented urban space, maximizing the value of local blue and white porcelain culture. The Project is composed of 26 enormous porcelain wares. With one below-grade and three above-grade floors, an east-west main street over 420 meters long connects the ocean park and film park.

The Project features the largest atrium in China of 1,729 m². Equipped with 154 LED lamp posts, the energy-efficient and environmental-friendly dome skylight satisfies the functional requirements of a commercial complex for night-time activities, offering a domed space for different needs. In interior design, the customer circulation is carefully analyzed for smooth spatial experience, allowing visitors to pamper themselves and wallow in spaces around the atrium.

Following the overall design concept of traditional blue and white porcelain, interior design takes more contemporary elements and approaches. Dots and circles are frequent on bridges, ceiling and floor. Dots in the same size and color are evenly distributed. These lively “Polka Dots” are in interesting contrast with the classic Chinese blue and white pattern, adding traditional and trendy touches.
