INBAR GARDEN PAVILLON IN YANQING, BEIJING
Studio Cardenas Conscious Design
The INBAR Garden Pavilion programmatically represents a bridge between architecture and nature. The pavilion was realised for INBAR (International Network for Bamboo and Rattan) in occasion of the Beijing International Horticulture Exhibition 2019 to promote the use of bamboo in construction and design. The project is characterised by cuts into the ground that rise up as a series of parallel strips to introduce depth, continuity and order. The garden rises up in correspondence with these cuts, supported by large bamboo arches, and flows directly onto the roof of the pavilion. This move introduces an organic form made from 5,000 canes of moso bamboo. The pavilion is located in a landscaped external area that is an integral and fundamental part of the project. The garden to the north, visible and accessible, is an open public space for temporary exhibitions.
