From COORDINATION ASIA is the Rainbow Chapel, based at the Shanghai Museum of Glass. The newly opened chapel appeals to creative Chinese couples looking for an alternative wedding venue and is the first of its kind in the city.
The Minjiang River in Sichuan Province, is now the home of the Riverside Tea House, a beautiful, calm space by Chinese interior design architect Lin Kaixin.
Built for a local client who wanted a place ‘to drink tea with drinks in leisure time while relax myself when feel tired’. Lin Kaixin came up with the concept of playing a flute near the river and integrating with nature as closely as possible. Whilst taking oriental culture as a central focus of the building, he has created a free, open, natural and humane spiritual space. Shoji paper, vertical wooden slats and a grey architectural aesthetic create a calm balance with the natural landscape around it.
