“A gale has risen and is sweeping the clouds across the sky.” Inspired by this famous verse in an ancient Chinese poem, the design team has presented a “pavilion of swirling clouds” for the garden festival of BJFU. Bordering a campus road, the site of the pavilion is a central square surrounded by woods, bushes, memorial stone carvings and benches. Modern building techniques, digital design technology and bamboo construction were integrated through pre-fabrication.
