Designed for the 8th China Flower expo, which will be held in 2014, the design for the information center by Lab Architecture Studio aims to create a very subtle expression. By blending it into nature, the project is able to unite itself with the land and environment. Both the lively architectural form and the flexible spatial structures activate the whole expo park. More images and architects’ description after the break.

The massing is primitive and only reflects the internal function without any intuition. As the first building appears in front of the visitors in the flower expo park, this information centre is designed to be a simple but modern hut, strengthening the landscape and activation of the building as well as enhancing the wisdom of architectures within Yangtze river region.

The form of the centre has well integrated with the public plaza and created a good circulation system. The vegetation landscape and public furniture on the plaza are leading the visitors to the quiet rest area along the lake from the busy information centre.
