Graceful Design

The pavilion's grand form rises and twists, resembling unfurling flower petals, with pockets and openings offering views of cherry blossom trees and the sky.

Serving as both sculptural art and architectural shelter, it provides a refreshing escape from Taiwan's heat, encouraging exploration and socializing.

Architectural Innovation

For years, Marc Fornes, the principal architect at New York's THEVERYMANY studio, has been leveraging cutting-edge technologies and pioneering a non-linear design approach for expansive public art installations and small-scale architectures.

The intricate curvilinear surfaces of the Cherry Blossom Pavilion are crafted through parametric and computational methods, seamlessly integrating design and fabrication. This meticulous process yields a sprawling, unified, ultra-thin system where envelope and structural support harmoniously megre.

Visitors circling or traversing through the pavilion discover fresh spatial encounters, engaging with its unique structure and catching glimpses of the surrounding environment. The studio's creation of multiple entry points, archways, and canopies forms a meandering playground, inviting guests to find solace and connect with one another.
