has created a pavilion in China that reimagines the traditional Chinese landscape of mountains, forest, clouds and water.
The 350sq m (3,770sq ft) Dragon Mountain Landmark Pavilion, so-called because of its location in Zhulongshan – literally Dragon Mountain, was created to draw the attention to the entrance of the Dragon Mountain Natural site.
Described by Chen as "an ethereal and abstract version of a traditional Chinese landscape", the installation comprises 200 steel poles that, together, create an undulating form reminiscent of a mountain.
At night, thousands of stars appear towards the top of the poles through illuminated perforations.
Mirrored canopies towards the top of the poles –and spanning multiple poles each – represent clouds, with perforations that create an interplay of light and shadow as the conditions change and time passes.
The lower sections of the poles are also mirrored and, like the height of the poles, undulate as one, giving the sense of a river flowing through the base of the installation.
