Material and its Properties
The glass itself has light-transmitting permeability and reflectivity, and the diffuse reflection of the aluminum plate also forms a reflection effect on the surrounding environment, forming a subjective reflection and integration of the building on the natural environment, reaching a design theme of “Dialogue with nature” on the other hand.
With the change of light in the day, light acts as an independent material to participate in the building.The glass shades also have the colour of the sky and the internal lighting. The calm water then incorporates the building and the sky, and the repeated light reflections make the edges of the building repetitive. The blurring of boundaries has also given the building a richer and more varied appearance.
