Superimpose, Micro-O pavilion in Hangzhou (China)

East of Hangzhou, capital of China’s Zhejiang Province, and immersed in Tai Yang Valley amid rice fields and bamboo groves, is this center for learning about nature, a work of the Hong Kong firm Superimpose. The Micro-O pavilion is part of an initiative to invite people from neighboring cities – Hangzhou and Shanghai – to learn about the rural environment, and with this, raise awareness of the importance of sustainable farming and healthy living. Clad on the outside with a white canvas and raised on slits, the ring of pinewood repeats an A-shaped, triangular structural frame, surrounding a central deck to be used for group activities.
