Located within a complex context of various building typologies and eras, this pavilion sits calmly on the shore of the campus’ lake, integrating comfortably in its scale and form. Each elevation addresses a different context with deceptive complexities despite its apparent simplicity. Chinese cultural sensibility lies at the core of this design as represented in its spatial progression, strict geometry and attention to detail. Despite this unmistakable cultural identity, the Centre retains a subtle familiarity through its use of materials, adding to its success as a public facility welcoming people from all cultures.
