Text description provided by the architects. The Daidai Pavilion is designed as a service building, a cafeteria in the Yuanxiang Lake Park, Jiading New Town. Yuanxiang Lake Park is formed by several of public open spaces surrounding the Yuanxiang Lake. Daidai Pavilion sits on the south-east corner of the park. Divided by water and roads, its site is isolated and not connected with other areas.

Floor Plan

The building consists of a main hall, a kitchen and 9 suits. In the plan, 9 cells surround the main hall in a shape of oval. The space in between the hall and cells is a semi-closed patio. Views of the park penetrate into the patio through the gaps in-between the cells. Seen from the park and the roads, the building seems like a cluster of local farmer houses. However, inside the building, the order of the round patio gives people a sudden contrast. The feel of chaos is thus surpassed by a strong geometrical order.
