Buddhism Temple project coming from the drawing board of Miliy Design studio, envisioned for a location in Chinese city of Taichang.
“ It’s a contemporary Buddhism temple based on the concept of reincarnation. The essence of Buddhism’s Sutra is so called “formlessness”.
Based on this, the form searching of the architecture becomes the path from the beginning to the end.
The prototype of Buddhism’s temple is from ancient time and based on ancient tectonic and space defining logic.
With the aid of digital design and fabrication techniques, the solution will have different possibilities.
Mobius ring is used as the metaphor of reincarnation in this design. The inner surface and outer surface meets in the same point seamlessly.
This process is just like the reincarnation in Buddhism. Circulation revolves from outside to inside through the space just like the reincarnation through different life forms.” Description of Miliy Design.
