CULTURAL
KUNSHAN WHITE PAGODA
In the context of the redevelopment of a park in Kunshan, a major piece of cultural heritage, the White Pagoda, previously removed in the mid 20th century, is supposed to be restored as part of an elevated walkway for joggers and bypassers. As these two infrastructures are bound to be very apparent within the natural environment, our design is inspired by the formal and structural principle of nature. In order to evoke the typical sillouette of a pagoda, the walkway is wrapped around the “natural” core of the tower, leading up to a viewing platform.
