The site is a typical sloping village with dense vegetation. A small river runs through it and reaches the top of the village, commanding the magnificent scenery of Mount Tai in the distance. When the project started, there were no villagers living on the site, leaving only a dozen groups of stone houses, some broken stone walls and a small number of production houses that had been used as pigsties, some newly built and some years old.

History of Earth and Human
Tangshan is located at the eastern foot of Zijin Mountain in the eastern suburbs of Nanjing, where the skull of “Nanjing ape man” dating back to about 600,000 years was found here in the early 1990s. Tangshan Fangshan National Geological Park is a national geological park with the themes of Tangshan Ape-man Cave, geological section, hot spring and Neogene Volcano. As a supporting project of Nanjing Homo Erectus Relic Museum, Ruralation Museum Hotel is located in Tangshan Homo Erectus Relic Park. The site is chosen at an abandoned quarry site on the southwest side of Nanjing Homo Erectus Relic Museum. In recent years, the mountains around the site have undergone ecological restoration and risk elimination by removing pumice, protecting with nets and other measures, and the exposed precipice have become the natural barrier and the rough background of the building.

In the era of internationalization and globalization, products we use and even our thoughts have been separated from local languages and cultures. The world is increasingly becoming “virtual” and “flat”. For architecture, globalization has brought advanced construction approaches and optimal materials, but at the same time caused anxiety and loss of identity. We think that modern architecture needs to reincorporate local context and cultural elements, reactivate the spirit of the site and balance internationalization and localization, so as to realize diversified architectural designs in the future.
