We respect for the original architectural layout and form in this area. The main part of the factory are the stories about traditional materials and Technology (bricks, terrazzo, dry dash, woods), and the new materials applied with a small amount of architectures, like foam aluminum, volcano rock, fluorocarbon steel and glass curtain wall. These exist as the supplements of the function and the point of balance for the formal logic.

In outdoor venues and landscape, we considered the type of pavements (permeable pavements, precast concrete slabs, and gravels), plant selection, and micro-topography. By these we try to shape the space and texture of the site, and give it some similarity to the initial situation. And it can also help us to avoid the blindly increment and recognition, coordinating the differences of materials and scales between factory and Tianning Temple.
