"Plain original village" is the biggest characteristic of happy ancient village. The folk dwellings in western Sichuan with green tiles and earthen walls are built against the mountain, facing the river, well-arranged and integrated with the natural environment. It is a rare ancient village with relatively complete preservation.

The whole village takes the green mountain forest as the keynote, the red sandstone culture as the foundation, the folk houses, courtyards, ancient roads, ancient trees, ancient bridges, and rare stone landscapes as the representatives. The natural landscapes such as the Millennium ginkgo couple tree, the dragon head, the frog stone, the eagle mouth cliff, the Qing Dynasty stone arch bridge "Zhao Qiao", the Dazhai terraced fields, the ancient Danma salt and iron road, and the ancient Niujiao village complement each other. The agricultural Dazhai village and the The years of educated youth have left precious traces here. The happy ancient village bears the history and vicissitudes of the ancient salt and iron road for thousands of years. With its long and profound ancient road culture, farming culture and folk culture, it has become the "poem and distance" in the hearts of many people.

Walk all the way in the ancient village, the southern side of the mountain barrier although some blockage, but the magnificent and straight green really let people shock. On one side of the mountain is the eagle's mouth cliff, which is sacred and unique, but with the improvement of the infrastructure such as the footpath, you can also get closer to the sacred and overlook the whole happy valley.

We expect the contestants to refine the beauty of nature in a slight way, with the least amount of change and the most primitive beauty.

The location of the pan-museum makes the challenges that the contestants will face very specific and not abrupt. The combination with the terrain; How to frame the scene; The contents of the space; Surrounding facilities and so on.

The village is a museum of the senses. Happiness grows together with the original village

The competition relies on the concept of the whole village as a museum that combines nature with culture, folk custom and happy life. It is divided into two sections, namely, tour line public art installation and pan-museum single building design.

Combine the corresponding functions, respect the local culture and language, and use the local image and materials to make the combination of nature and art in the ancient village more harmonious.

Pan-museum architecture is the summary of the whole village exhibition, and as a single space carrier, the exhibits of the whole village are sorted out. The reason why it is not just named "museum" is to hope that pan-museum architecture is not only a display, but also a prospect and design of existing, future, all kinds of sensory, natural, humanistic, historical, cultural and folk customs. Design monomer at the same time to arrange the surrounding format and layout, so that the region more three-dimensional.
