Between 2008 and 2011, OA together with TEAM Tourism and Image Makers gave advice to the municipal government of Xi'an on the redevelopment and presentation of the Daming Palace site in advance of its nomination as a World Heritage Site. This development was part of a large scale heritage-led urban regeneration project. Daming was the emperors' main palace during the Tang Dynasty (618-907 AD), a period often considered as China's golden age, and enclosed 19.6 square kilometres, four times the size of the Forbidden City in Beijing. One of the partners' most successful consultancy projects was the concept design and delivery of the now award-winning Daming Palace Discovery Centre that explains the process of archaeology and the significance of Daming Palace compared to other World Heritage Sites around the World.
