The Serenity of the Cherry Blossom Pavilion

Come, sit a while, and marvel at the Cherry Blossom Pavilion in Taichung City, Taiwan. Its organic form evokes cherry blossoms even when the cherry trees around it are not in bloom. This installation from the design studio MARC FORNES / THEVERYMANY is made of aluminum panels that had to be precision cut in patterns generated by computer to create the complicated yet serene shape. The pavilion provides shade, seating, and inspiration to all who visit. Outside, the precise color shading mimics the beauty of cherry blossoms, and inside the structure, the organic curves and intricate joining of the panels are just stunning. See plenty of pictures of this work of art, inside and out, at designboom.
