Archstudio, Buddhist sanctuary in Tangshan (China)

 
The firm Pekin Archstudio is the author of this temple in Tangshan, a city in Hebei province, northeast China. Containing 169 square meters in a single floor, the building is hidden in a mound, thus fusing with the landscape. Embracing preexisting trees, the floor plan breaks up into five branches serving different functions: entrance, Buddhist meditation room, tea room, living room, and bathroom. The spaces flow around two axes, one stretching north to south and the other along the river. Extensive use of reinforced concrete strkes a contrast with the wood of the furniture. The design of the structure and the materials used seek to stimulate human perception.
