The relationship between the path and the space.
The focus of this project is the exterior design of a traditional reception office of the Hangzhou BaiTaling art school. Designed by architects ANADC, led by Weng Shanwei and Yuan Jiadui, the distinctive and elongated structure acts as a pathway to the entrance of the school. The wrapped space becomes the architectural space, it can interact with light, rain, and air. The architects designed some details with a mechanical sense in the entrance, yet maintained a minimal aesthetic through the strictness of the materials (aluminium, copper, and concrete) and form.
