Nan Yang intercontinental rose expo was completed in Nan Yang, Henan province in early 2019. Folie Architecture deeply participated in the whole planning and design process of the expo, cooperated with BFU powerful landscape design professional team, and completed the design of landscape architecture and structures in a total of 12 public scenic spots in the park. These buildings assume various functions of service, rest and flower appreciation, and fully integrate into the landscape plant environment of public scenic spots. We hope to create a series of landscape buildings with contemporary building materials and Spaces. The following will introduce the seven buildings and structures
According to the initial terrain conditions, the garden design team planned it as a depressed basin when it got this site. The originally ordinary site became a plot with vertical design potential in aviation height district of Nan Yang Chinese Rose Garden. Because of the common requirement for air traffic control with a height limitation of 6 meters (elevation for aircraft landing), it has become a transition point in western plank road system and its initial depressed terrain has naturally become a catchment area. We proposed to build it into a rainwater garden, which is able to let passers-by experience landscape of this site and its surrounding radiation range in different elevations. The design starts from the adjustment of contour line. We use heavy rough wall to surround a planar dual loop rainwater garden and leave an opening in necessary directions to lead passers from western plank road to this sinking garden. The rough wall limits the sight to the sky. When it rains, hydrops in the garden will reflect plank road and cloud in the sky.

▼下雨的时候，花园内部积水，将会倒映出栈道和天空的云彩，when it rains, hydrops in the garden will reflect plank road and cloud in the sky.
The plank road directly runs through the whole site in the middle elevation and extends to the next node northward at the turning point. At the same time, passers-by can go up the stairs and walk up to the two-stage inn. It is a succinct cuboid space only surrounded by necessary structure for maintenance, from which visitors can overlook the landscape of Chinese Rose Garden within the sight radiation range as well as a few high viewing spots in the garden. We hope that passers-by can stay here for a while to appreciate both the near view and distant view from different heights and experience the spreading of nature as they go up or come down the passage.

The project participated in Intercontinental Chinese Rose Expo in Nan Yang City, Henan Province. It is located in the plank road system of west garden. Compared with the other work–Inn (stage) by the design team, functions of this project are more specific. It is equipped with toilets and small leisure tea rooms in conspicuous positions. This building can be seen in various sightseeing experience of the 2000m long Chinese rose corridor in the west area. We position it as a “shuttling” space. When people get here, they can go up slowly along the wide ramp and eventually gather at the broad roof terrace where people can overlook the whole view of the west area and sometimes see airplanes about to land in nearby airports flying overhead. In the meantime, we also arrange outdoor steps, which can also be an outdoor site for small-scale activities. The building is built from the ground and looks to the water. The tea room is on the second floor and the toilet is under the ramp in the first floor. It is also a service site for short stop and a landscape as well.

Lin Yuan Waterside Pavilion
▼临渊水榭概览，Lin Yuan waterside pavilion overview
The Lin Yuan waterside pavilion is located in the view system of east garden, and these two structures can be seen on every important water Tourist trails in the eastern district. The mutual drops and build-ups of several misplaced wooden platforms form the base of the Lin Yuan waterside pavilion, guiding visitors to inadvertently stroll onto the platform slightly higher than the high walkway. We wanted to create a place where we could make a little stopover, and set up maintenance walls and roofs. Lin Yuan waterside pavilion 1 is a single-layer structure, with the masonry veneer wall to guide visitors to a “box”, where the window for a short stay to see the view, just can see the central scenic area of the lake. Lin Yuan waterside pavilion 2 is a two-story structure, part of the structure above the upright barge shore, the other part extends to the trail, visitors can enjoy the lake view at different heights.

Pavilion is located in the middle of the Eastern Trail system on a small hill adjacent to the water, each side of a path to guide visitors to approach. Pavilion facing the lake, with a bench, the ground is the trend and fall layer-wood platform, all the way to the water’s platform. The mottled shadow of light tilted down, reflecting the ripples of the water, and we could sit on the ground and listen to the lake. The pavilion is made of two materials, steel structure and solid wood, which hides its volume on the hill to allow a comfortable window facing the lake.

▼月季花廊概览，Rose Gallery overview
The rose garden, a special garden on the east side, hides the rose gallery, which is a shortcut through the rose garden from the public trail to other special gardens and urban exhibition gardens. We replaced the pedestrian path with a zigzag open veranda, and carefully controlled the turning point and length of each section to ensure that its flat form is suitable for the flowers in the rose garden. On the side of the corridor, the array of wooden pillars in different directions becomes the support for the climbing of Chinese roses. The structure of this long corridor does not follow a simple homogeneous column network system, but adopts several v-shaped columns to support at important points, thus reducing the number of columns and complying with the layout law of the top grid, forming richness in a zigzags system.

▼栈道观景台概览，Viewing Platforms overview
There are three important turning points in the trestle system in the west district. In order to create a rhythmic tour experience, we arranged three viewing platforms of the same type on these turning points, all of which are located at the near end of the trestle turning point and extending towards the landscape of the lake. The viewing platform is made up of two square volumes, with a walkway on the first floor and a “box” with a roof and maintenance on the second floor. The viewing platform of the walkway is not only a marker, but also a stop point, which provides signposts for the walkway tour system of several kilometers.
