Dapi Mountain Pavilion

Xun County, Hebi, Henan Province, China
The site is located in Dapi Mountain, adjacent to an ancient temple. The owner wishes to build a pavilion, providing a better visiting experience for tourists while also promoting local intangible cultural heritage. The architectural layout uses the enclosed style, featuring a linear form that connects the entrances on the east and west sides, with a courtyard on the southern side for relaxation. The building manifests itself in a low-key manner among the mountains. Adopting the traditional sloping roof form, the structure utilizes modern techniques to create a lightweight form. Local materials are used in the construction, such as grey stone, laminated wood, and rammed earth walls, aiming to reflect the building's integration into the natural environment. The intangible cultural heritage theme is "Clay Gugu." It is crafted from sticky clay and features two small holes at its tail, emitting a "gu gu" sound when blown into. The architecture incorporates elements that reflect this theme.
