Bridging Teahouse by Fernando Romero Enterprise
Located in the Jinhua Architecture Park in China, the Bridging Teahouse is a striking building designed by FR-EE / Fernando Romero Enterprise.
“The Bridging Teahouse explores the typological interaction between two traditional structures from the gardens of ancient China: a teahouse and a bridge. The bridge spans as a continuous concrete structure over a pond and stands out strongly in its flaming red color, traditionally the symbolic color of happiness in China.
Inside, a variety of micro platforms in different shapes and levels, create sequences of experiences for the visitors passing through the bridge – allowing for privacy and intimacy even when bigger groups move through the pavilion. The division between these platforms supports the structure of the pavilion, enabling it to span over the pond.”Architecture Posted on February 17, 2017
