E-sports pavilion gives people more sense of future beyond reality and science and technology compared with other places.

We use the reflection, refraction and diffuse reflection of the physical principles to increase the spatial layering and ductility through paint glass, mirrored floor tiles and mirrored stainless steel materials.

Through the application of black emulsion paint and black paint glass, highlight the effect of light in the whole space that just like being in the vast universe, it’s make people feel the energy of light and immerse your body and mind in space.

The reflection of mirror light and the extension of light in the space combined with the form of a white half box, and it make the whole space form a huge, closed time tunnel.With the change of the color of the lamp, the originally quiet space has a mood which makes it more consistent with different themes in the E-sports pavilion.

The interaction between the mirror stainless steel on the top and the ground black painted glass that make the height of the building was expanded four times in visual effect, and the space extended.

Light & dark, line & surface, light & shadow, extension & resistance, all in the opposite way direct expression of the space, let the body of every cell in it.

Which is the real self in mirror image or reality.In fact, the biggest enemy in the face of confrontation and challenge is oneself.
