Stage of Forest

Situated at the edge of the forest next to the ski slope, while sitting on the hillside, it captures a panoramic view towards the mountain range and the Songhua Lake between its peaks. The site is surrounded by luscious greenery in summer and covered by an overwhelming white snow in winter.

The building combined rough materiality with its sensuous form,and it's space is choreographed through a carefully plotted experience. Seen from afar, the “stage” is a dark, free-floating monolith in the landscape, with a heavy concrete “base”. 

Designing in nature is to introduce an enlightening medium between nature and people. The “Stage of Forest” is intended to stimulate people to come up with more ideas of exploring their relationship with the nature, and itself also becomes part of the nature.
