The architecture of the River Culture Pavilion (ARC) is an powerful formal statement that combines nature, technology and space. The building is a strong focal point set against a stunning panoramic landscape, on the site where four rivers come together.. The architecture is comprised of a vessel shaped form that is clad in silver fritted ETFE pillows that through a play of transparency and geometry creates an ephemeral effect. This atmospheric quality of the building enclosure is heightened by light reflections from shallow pool of water that surrounds the base. The architecture enables the visitor's experience to be an alternating play between a 'real' experience of the water, sky and landscape, and a virtual experience as presented through multimedia. This experience culminates on the roof where a large reflecting pond reflects the sky and an observation terrace enables the visitor to overlook the site and its natural surroundings from yet another perspective.
