‘Housing Corporation VANKE has asked us to make a proposal for a bike club as part of a big resort in Southern China that we are currently involved in. The Bike Pavilion should accommodate bike rental and a café.
A protruding roof could be very welcome in this tropical climate. The oversized top could house an additional function.
What about a velodrome?
The elegant curvature of the steeply banked oval bike track creates an optimistic gesture; eaves curled upward: a surprisingly functional pagoda.’
