Tradition or innovation ? This place is a perfect mix between both. Check it out.
When you renovate a traditional tea house overlooking the Forbidden City in Beijing, you need to be truly strong to resist the desire to go traditional. Well, Kengo Kuma did: while respecting the form, structure and construction of the traditional chinese house, he used polyethylene plastic batons to create this surreal translucent atmosphere. Incredible sensation.
