"We should dive into our own culture to create architecture," says Liu, 46.

Following the APEC Summit in 2014, Liu designed the G20 Summit venue in Hangzhou, a place known for its landscapes and culture.

The structure was inspired by the landscape and the pavilions in East China, creating an atmosphere that makes people feel they are surrounded by gardens and lakes.

Now, for the BRICS Summit in September, Liu says the structure will reflect the diversity and beauty of Xiamen, which was part of the ancient Maritime Silk Road.

For Liu, traditional Chinese architecture provides him with inspiration. And he tries to maintain harmony between people and nature in his work.

"If you don't like your culture, then it's hard to get other people to like it," he says.
