Photograph, Forest Building, 2014
Trace Architecture creates architecture that is inseparable from its environment. The Forest Building in Beijing uses rammed earth and wood found in nearby surroundings. The geometric posts and canopy resemble tree trunks and branches. The scale of these “trunks and branches” is proportional to the nearby trees and fits comfortably into its natural environment.
