Suspended cloud

Jiunvfeng Studio

Conceived as a ‘suspended cloud’, this white pavilion in China’s Shandong province serves as a visitor centre that offers sweeping views across the mountainous landscape. Designed by Gad · line+ Studio, the structure is located adjacent to the Shenlong Canyon, with Mount Tai, one of China’s five ‘sacred mountains’, to the east. The building itself comprises three main parts: a white membrane canopy, a transparent floor to ceiling glazing, and a thick stone base. The pavilion was constructed in its entirety in just five months.

Visitors inside are totally immersed in a relaxed space atmosphere to read and meditate.
