Outline

This project aims to create a space where people can gather and interact in a tranquil natural environment. The location is a typical marginal community with abundant indigenous vegetation and landscape. A dilapidated warehouse looking on a cattail marsh has been transformed into a teahouse, which represents communication. Designed to blend in the surrounding nature, this artistic structure is expected to motivate more people to visit the island, create more interaction and eventually add new, contemporary meanings and values to the local community.
