Located in a preserved scenic area where bamboo is widely grown, this pavilion of rafting center endeavored to establish its connection with nature. Local bamboo weaving craft was reinterpreted as a construction technology of architectural envelope. The bamboo pavilion is shaped into an abstract and symbolic “fish”, bearing a good meaning of prosperity. Sunlight and air are allowed into this pavilion as if it were invisible in the nature. With sunlight filtering through bamboo slats, this pavilion makes a peaceful space for rafters in hot summer days in the scenic valley.
