Topography







Three images to show how the different spaces are made up of three layers of terrain, stacked on top each other. These layers divide the pavilion into three distinct qualities. The open hillside on the top layer, the vast interior landscape between the top and middle layers, and the intimate caves between the middle and bottom layers.

Here you can also see the vertical sides of the building. Formed by slicing the terrain at the edges of the given site of 60 x 50 meters they give the impression that the pavilion is cut out from the ground and placed at the site in Shanghai. Like a small piece of Swedish cake.
