Selected as the winner of an international competition, Penda’s landscape pavilion for the 10th international Garden Expo in Wuhan, China seeks to highlight the importance of clean water and protecting the environment. Dubbed “Where the River Runs,” the pavilion takes visitors through a landscape of hills and valleys on a pathway resembling a river. Each visitor is given seeds to plant, taking over “the function of a river as they bring life to the pavilion.”

The 1,500-square-meter-pavilion is currently under construction and is set to be completed this year. Learn more about the design after the break.
