The pavilion is designed to be a venue for architectural events. When first come to the site, we immediately feel the presence of nature here, of various plants and greenery, and the need to assert it through out our design. We decide to create a structure that can be blend itself into its surrounding environment, the special features is all about the mixing, the lightness, the hiding,the penetration.. The result is an organic structure just like a straw sitting the garden. The straw is an image of memory, one that belongs to the Vietnamese countryside
