#222 Quel est ce lieu ? Where are you ?


Any idea ? Check it out.

This incredible geometric space is a new teahouse in Shanghai. It is fully symbolic in every way, and the architect explains it very clearly: “Tea is one symbol of Chinese Zen life, so a teahouse is not just a place for people to have tea, but also has some profound significance. (…) In this case, every stick (on the wall) has its own different angle and length, and the available space has a clear outline. These sticks accomplish a gradual transition from the rectangular room (size: 3.8m*4.7m) to an oval activity space. The teahouse contains two geometry shapes and three different densities.”

Cet espace géométrique incroyable est un nouveau salon de thé à Shanghai. Il est entièrement symbolique et l’architecte l’explique très clairement: «Le thé est un symbole de la vie chinoise du Zen, et donc un salon de thé n’est pas seulement un endroit où les gens peuvent prendre le thé, il a aussi une signification profonde. Dans ce cas, chaque bâton qui constitue l’enveloppe a son propre angle et sa longueur, définissant ainsi un espace disponible au contour clair: ces bâtons accomplissent une transition graduelle de la pièce rectangulaire vers un espace d’activité ovale. Le salon de thé contient deux formes géométrique et trois densités différentes. “
