The Ode to Nature Pavilion is a representation of the power of poetry and introspection to shape one's view and appreciation of their surroundings. From the details in the materials chosen to the careful design, the interconnectivity between the literary arts, the visual and spatial arts is highlighted. It incorporates sonic design to amplify the sounds of the surroundings and deepen the spiritual connection of the visitor to the site as a whole. With a different profile from each side, the pavilion is a testament to how poetry shifts perspectives and transforms the mind.
