Appreciation towards YIYU design for providing the following description:


Landscape architecture involves space, nature, and time in its physical composites. Yet it also engages sense, perception, emotion, and memory, which brings its power to trigger the joy, excitement, and philosophical reflects to human.

这个项目的提案,我们定义 “感官”为发掘场所时所带来的兴奋与喜悦。像孩子第一次看见晨曦的光,第一次见到春雨雨丝的波光熠熠,或第一次发现奇异色彩的雨后彩虹。我们想要重现这样的记忆,这种牵动好奇心的童年记忆,这种发现惊喜、发现自然的旅程。

In our proposal, we define “sensuality” as the excitement of discovering the joyful quality of space. Like a child first finding the beauty of glimmer from the morning sun, discovering the shimmery from the spring shower, or seeing the magical colors from the rainbow, we want to create a space which will trigger the memories of the participants of their initial curiosity to space in the childhood, and the joy of discovering its treasure beauty in the adventure.

The whole visiting processes we are aiming for will be a playful journey to the visitors, like a game of finding light. Through the journey, being curious, be adventurous, and being excited and joyous of their finding, the place will be instilled the energy of sensational pure pleasure from its own spatial power, the nature, and space, and the sensuality.

Our strategy is, to use sun light as the media, and combine a colorful transparent knitting mesh as a filter above the sky, to cast a vibrant net of light and shadow in the place. We use butterfly as our inspiration for the pattern, and play with transparency and color of the mesh, to strengthen the power of light. In this way the sunlight passing through the mesh will cast hundreds of colorful butterfly shadows in the space, to create a fantasy of ephemeral nature in space.
