Location
Lhasa, Tibet
Year
2014

Located in the central area of Lhasa city, in-between the famous tourist spot Potala Palace and Jokhang Temple. This site is sensitive because of the strong architectural presence of the old Tibetan city. The climate in Tibet is harsh and it has influenced traditional architectural styles to be heavy, dense and constructed mostly out of stone. The center should take into consideration the formidable climate and traditional site context. The objective for guests visiting this center is to experience Tibetan traditional culture and Tibetan medicine during their stay.
